Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Chad Hugo’s occasional production partner and friend of theneptunes.org, Kid Icarus, has released his own album with rapper Intalek. In case you don’t know who Icarus is, here’s a quick rundown – Kid Icarus is a DJ/Producer out of VA (though he is currently residing in LA), Whilst in Virginia he began interning with Teddy Riley which in turn led to Icarus going on to work with The Neptunes and the guys at the Star Trak Camp.

Most recently Kid Icarus was featured in the video for Fam-Lay’s “Beach Cruiser” (Did i mention that he’s Fam-Lay’s official DJ?) and he also produced an upcoming single for Camp-Lo With Chad Hugo, as well as a ton of other projects that you’ll hear about soon. The Synesthesia album features Nickelus F and Fam-Lay, so be sure to check it out.

TheNeptunes.org x The Internet (Coming Soon)

A few weeks ago we hooked up with Odd Future members Syd Tha Kid & Matt Martians to talk about their band The Internet.

The guys discussed their current album Purple Naked Ladies, work on the next LP and what life is like being in Odd Future and how they are now creating their own identity away from the group. Syd & Matt also gave some insight into upcoming projects with Kilo Kish, Earl Sweatshirt and rising star Tay Walker.

As you guys know our forum was where Matt met Tyler, The Creator.

Here is a preview of our interview – a message from The Internet to our very own mika

Earl Sweatshirt Reveals Second Album Details, Confirms Christian Rich On The Album

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.comBy Matt Putrino. Last night Earl Sweatshirt took to Twitter to reveal a lengthy list of producers and features for his upcoming still-untitled sophomore full-length. The lineup of those involved includes some heavy hitters including The Neptunes, Casey Veggies, Christian Rich as well as the OFWKTA staples Tyler, The Creator, Frank Ocean, Domo Genesis, and The Internet. He’s still holding out on the album’s title, but he does make a special point to note the content on this one won’t be about rape. Check out the full statement below, and hear his recent collaboration with Flying Lotus.

“You wanna know why im not in europe with the squad? Im finishing this album. Im just trying to make pretty music. Everyone whose favorite song off EARL was epar or whatever might be pretty bummed. Everyone with 666 or KTA or some sort of stupid hashtag like “hey look im crazy” in their bio might be pretty bummed too. I anticipate a loss of fans. I also anticipate gaining some. So. You know. Yeah. I hope i lose you as a fan if you only fuck with me cause i rapped about raping girls when i was 15. I fucking love how it sounds. And uhh. Thats what matters Im gonna go out on a limb and say that you can hear the progression.

Christian Rich // The Neptunes // Tyler, The Creator // randomblackdude // Domo Genesis // Vince Staples // Tyler, The Creator // BBNG // Pharrell Williams // Thundercat // Ommas Keith // Frank Ocean // And Earl Sweatshirt. Thats the list of folks who did work on _____. Oh and samiyam and alchemist!!!!! Oh yeah and casey veggies!! And matt and syd. What if i got kidnapped and murdered by crazy nicaraguan killers before anyone could hear it. I’d be bummed. What if tom cruise killed me for being extra’d out. Its funny cause alchemist is also better at rapping than everyone. Its actually fucked up. Uzowuru just stopped me from dropping the album title.”

Lupe Fiasco Talks About Possible Album With Pharrell (August 9th)

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Lupe Fiasco has been interviewed by CNN, where he revealed some new information about the upcoming Lupe/Pharrell album. All City-Chess Club, a superband made up of Lupe and seven other rappers, will be a mixtape-only outfit, he said, and he’s unsure what the future will hold for Child Rebel Soldiers, his venture with Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. To quote Lupe on CRS, “Ehhhhhhhhhhhhh.” As for the rumored studio collaboration between him and Skateboard P, he says it’s a coin toss. “That’s in the incubator because we definitely talk about it. It definitely came up, but it’s kind of like 50-50, but definitely a good strong 50 on the yes side – weak 50 no, a strong 50 yes,” he said.

Pharrell Is A Top Candidate To Be A New Judge On ‘American Idol’

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Pharrell Williams could take one of the judging slots on ‘American Idol‘ left open by the exits of J.Lo and Steven Tyler. Pharrell Williams appears more than likely to be christened the next judge on “American Idol.” According to a source close to the rapper/producer/designer’s camp, Williams has told members of his Star Trak Entertainment record label that he will slide into one of the slots vacated by the recent departures of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. Williams had reportedly been negotiating with the reality show in recent weeks but we’re told that he’s informed his closest associates that he’ll be at “Idol” auditions later this month.

Williams will join Mariah Carey as one of the new judges and his relationship with the five-time Grammy Award winner and “Idol” stalwart Randy Jackson was a factor in his decision. Williams is “super tight with Mariah and Randy,” says our source. A rep for “Idol,” whose 12th season is scheduled to debut early in 2013, had “no comment.” A spokeswoman for Williams did not get back to use by deadline.

Miley Cyrus Worked Four Weeks With Pharrell For New Album

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
After Miley’s highly publicized Salvia incident — where the world watched her smoking the legal hallucinogenic — hip-hop producer Pharrell Williams reached out and asked Miley to work with him! Talk about a silver lining! In the September issue of Marie Claire, Miley Cyrus talks about working with famous rapper and producer Pharrell at his studio in Miami. “It was magic,” she says. After the Salvia scandal, “Pharrell said, ‘Don’t be offended because this is how I talk, but [I thought], That b**ch is actually living. She’s not sitter there with her Momager’s chain on her door. I want to free that bitch. I want her out of her cage,’” Miley said.

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
She recorded music with him during four weeklong stints at his studio in Miami. “I’d never worked like that before. I was talking to him like he was an older brother, and everything I said was going onto the track. [I told my new manager, Bruce Flohr], ‘I don’t need the money. I don’t care if I make a dime on this. Let me make a good record.’ I got in there with Pharrell, and it was magic. Oh, dude, I’m so happy.” The songs on Miley’s upcoming album are large autobiographical. We can’t wait to see a new side of Miley! Although this is the first time they have worked together, they have admired each other for years. ”Pharrell saw me dancing to Madonna songs on YouTube when I was young and [at the time] said, ‘I see something in her.’ This year, we made a record together and it was magic.”
