Listen to Fetty Wap, “I’m Juggin” (Prod. by Zaytoven)

fetty wap xxl freshmen 2015 freestyle

Fetty Wap has cited Gucci Mane as one of his main influences and the way he has been putting out music–rapidly and with no warning–only shows the power Gucci has despite the fact that he’s currently sitting in a prison cell. On his latest cut, “I’m Juggin,” Fetty taps longtime Gucci collaborator Zaytoven and the Remy Boyz for a track that popped up on a non-descript mixtape overnight. Featuring plenty of tags and even a “wow” ad-lib, Fetty Wap takes his love for Gucci Mane a step further. Fetty ditches the singing for rapping on this one and the Remy Boyz sprinkle in their own verses over Zaytoven’s keys. Check out “Im Juggin” above.

Fetty Wap was one of the more obvious choices for the 2015 XXL Freshmen class and with “Trap Queen” already a certified hit, the New Jersey native is hard at work with his follow up music. Check out his Freshman freestyle below:

Dr. Dre, Elton John Plan Beats 1 Radio Shows for Apple Music

When Beats 1 Radio launches next week as part of Apple Music, it will feature programs by artists including Dr. Dre and Elton John. The former artist’s show will be called “The Pharmacy,” while the latter will host “Elton John’s Rocket Hour,” according to The New York Times.

Other artists and celebrities who will have their own one- and two-hour radio shows include Pharrell Williams, Drake, St. Vincent, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, Disclosure and Jaden Smith.

BBC DJ Zane Lowe will lead the charge alongside Ebro Darden, of New York’s Hot 97, and London-based Julie Adenuga.

“Zane is a genuine enthusiast; this is not a fake thing,” John told the paper. “He’s a fan, and he’s a fan who’s got the opportunity to make his position in the world work for other people. He genuinely loves music, and that’s my kind of guy.”

The paper reports that the idea for Beats 1 Radio came from Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, who was previously Beats’ chief creative officer and continues to serve as a designer at Apple Music. After growing disillusioned with the way that digital music had made it so “everything gets so nichey” when it comes to playlists, hearing the way Lowe conducted himself on the BBC inspired the singer to question radio’s role in music discovery. “I wondered if in today’s world there is still a place for monoculture,” Reznor told the Times. “Can that still exist?”

New York reports that the singer had been flying to Apple HQ in Cupertino to work with Beats 1’s designers and developers since the tech giant had acquired Beats Music. Beats 1 will launch as a component of Apple Music in the program’s app along with the social-media platform Connect next Tuesday.

One of the first big interviews that the radio station will broadcast will be Lowe’s recent encounter with Eminem, in which they discussed the rapper’s music for the new film Southpaw and his experiences as a boxer. The air time for the interview has yet to be announced.

Apple Music arrives amid several controversies surrounding streaming music. Aside from fierce competition from rivals like Spotify and Tidal, who have each expanded in original programming, the service already drew criticism from outspoken artists’ rights advocate Taylor Swift.

The pop star said she would not allow the service to feature her music during its planned three-month free trial period – before it transitions into either an ad-supported or premium service – since it would not be compensating artists for streamed music during that period. Apple made a quick about-face and said it would pay artists, and the company’s exec Eddy Cue told Rolling Stone that the note “solidified quickly that we needed a change.” Swift has subsequently agreed to allow her recent 1989 album to be streamed on the service.

Coffee Break: Crystal Quartz Huggie Earrings

Rebecca Taylor Crystal Quartz Huggie Earring | CorporetteOooh: I have not really focused on Melissa Joy Manning jewelry before, although I’ve certainly heard her name — but now I’m obsessed. She has a ton of delicate, delicate hoops and huggies, my favorite for work. (My theory: it’s really uncomfortable to talk on a phone with a post earring, and bigger earrings run the risk of being inappropriate for work. If you have a conference call you can plan to take your earring off, but then you run the risk of losing your earring…) Anyhoo: these lovely recycled-metal and crystal “hug hoop earrings” look modern and delicate, perfect for work. They’re $150 at RebeccaTaylor.com. (Pro tip: They often have steep sales with additional discounts offered only to their email list, so if you like Rebecca Taylor or these earrings, consider signing up.)
