Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist Make A Soothing Soundtrack For The End Times

It's beautiful out. That's one of the fucked up things. From all available evidence, we've been blessed with a nationwide wave of sunny spring-into-summer weather. At this point, I've seen dozens of videos of police beating and manhandling and pepper-spraying and tear-gassing demonstrators while wispy clouds drift lazily across clear blue skies.

Nipsey Hussle 2020 Grammys Tribute Brings Together Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, YG, DJ Khaled, John Legend & Kirk Franklin

Given that the Grammys takes place in Nipsey Hussle’s turf, Los Angeles, it should have been no surprise that a slot was carved out to pay tribute to the late West Coast rapper. Meek Mill, who seemingly has recovered from his near altercation with Nicki Minaj’s husband, opened up the tribute with a heartfelt verse. John Legend banged on the ivory keys and DJ Khaled hollered like he was MCing the baddest party in heaven. Nipsey’s presence, as expected, played out on screen and through a recording...
