PENPALS – Up To the Sky (prod. by Quelle Chris)

New York rap three-piece PENPALS are on a whole other level of existence with their latest single, “Up To The Sky,” a psychedelia-laced burner produced by Quelle Chris off their highly anticipated new album, To Whom It May Concern.

For those unfamiliar with the buzzing trio, the PENPALS are made up of two rappers (Cynic The Apache and Rapswell) and a producer (Squires) who have been delivering mind-melting Hip-Hop for the past few years. However, it’s this latest project that serves as a culmination of their passion for the genre—and for turning it completely on its head.

PENPALS embrace their otherworldly leanings throughout “Up To The Sky,” a track that dissects and references a variety of philosophical and spiritual beings. But instead of getting lost in a discussion of a higher power, Cynic and Rapswell use the subject matter to their advantage by delivering brain-twisting bars that include “Summon Cthulhu huffing glue out of a paper bag” and “We the sound of the shocking behavior/ Shaving whispers off my face with Occam’s razor.”

The single is a fitting follow-up to their previously released video, “Hi Tech,” in promotion of TWIMC. Directed by Ryan Nocella, the visuals center on the conspiracy theory-soaked rhymes of Cynic and Rapswell, whose tin foil antics take them to a number of unrecognizable, bunker-esque locations. It’s a trip, and one that even further encapsulates the PENPALS’ m.o.

Both “Up to the Sky” and “Hi Tech” are now available through all digital retailers, and can be purchased for instant grat off the iTunes pre-order for the full length release of To Whom It May Concern, which is due out next Friday, June 01. The 13 track LP, in available now for pre-order via Brick Records.

Pusha T’s “King Push” Album Dropping This Friday

Among many things, Kanye West went on a series of epic Twitter rants, supporting Trump, and calling himself Nat Turner among them. He also spoke on his music, documenting a number of release dates for projects he’s working on. “I’m hand producing all the albums I tweeted about. Been chopping samples from the sunken place,” quipped Ye.

“Pusha May 25th My album June 1st me and Cudi June 8th and Teyana June 22nd and oh yeah…Nas June 15th,” he revealed. Since West himself is known to move album dates around, social media took the news with great skepticism. It appears as if Kanye was being truthful, at least about the Pusha T album, and it’s been confirmed to drop this Friday.

Pusha T’s manager, Steven Victor, confirmed to DJ Booth in an email on Tuesday that the album will be dropping this Friday. Victor is also the Executive VP at Def Jam. Titled King Push, Victor tweeted last week that it was the, “album of the year any genre.”

Kanye West also shared some information on the album last week when he tweeted a picture of him in a home studio. In the picture, tentative tracklists for all the albums that he is working on were hanging around him on whiteboards. According to Kanye, King Push will feature at least 8 songs.

Rampage Jackson To 50 Cent: “You’re Not a Real Fighter!” (Video)

Rampage Jackson is putting an end to rumors he’s headed to an MMA fight with 50 Cent, telling TMZ Sports there’s no way in hell Curtis ever REALLY gets in a cage with him. 50 started trash talking Rampage earlier this month, saying he’s the superior “Jackson” and would wreck the former UFC champ if they ever stepped in a cage.

The rapper fueled speculation that the two were working on a deal when he posted a photo with Bellator president Scott Coker.

So, when TMZ saw Rampage at LAX, they asked, and Jackson said straight-up he’s INCREDIBLY ANNOYED by all the fight talk, “cause it’s never happening!”

“50 probably drinking too much of that champagne that he got,” Rampage said. “Who actually think 50 trying to fight? I just don’t feel like 50 trying to step in no cage with me, he ain’t no fighter.”

“I ain’t trying to challenge him to no rap battles.”

Rampage added, “It’s annoying as f*ck.”

Tekashi 6ix9ine Arrested for “Assaulting” an Officer

Lighting rod for controversy, rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was reportedly arrested for assaulting a police officer on this past Sunday (5/20). Page Six reports 6ix9ine parked his SUV in front of a fire hydrant on Sterling Place in Bed-Stuy around 4:15 pm.

After picking up a charge for aggravated unlicensed operation, Tekashi allegedly assaulted an officer while his handcuffs were being taken off. According to a statement made by an NYPD spokesperson, 6ix9ine grabbed and squeezed an officer’s hand, causing “pain and swelling.”

No word on if the rapper is still locked up.
