Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. debuted at the top of the charts, but that wasn’t without a lot of handwork, dedication, and even bringing sleeping bags to the studio.
Sounwave, Top Dawg Entertainment’s exclusive in-house producer, talked with GQ, where about how things got so serious that producers had to sleep in the studio.
“Once he got his whole brainstorming thing down and we knew the direction we were going we locked down the studio for months,” Soundwave said. “Never left. Literally sleeping bags in the studio. Every producer who was on this project literally had to sleep in the studio. We were not leaving until this was a perfect sound to us.”
DAMN. producers include Mike WiLL Made-It, Alchemist, Cardo, DJ Dahi, Terrace Martin, Sounwave, 9th Wonder and BADBADNOTGOOD.
Sounwave clears up some of the rumors about new Kendrick music ignited by recent comments and tweets from he and the rapper
But what if I told you… that's not the official version..

“We’ve done this project a few times; we had different versions of it,” Sounwave explained. “But until we got that one chill at the end of the last song and it just gives you that vibe that this is it, it’s not going out.”
The TDE rapper also shut down the speculation with one tweet, “KenFolk. ThankU 4 the desire of always anticipating new music of my own. None is coming. My work will be in our future TDE dates tho. #DAMN.”
Good. More time to enjoy DAMN.
Chance The Rapper is taking aim at bootleggers.
According to a Pitchfork, the Chicago rapper has filed a preemptive lawsuit in an Illinois district against anyone (“JOHN DOES 1-100, individuals, JANE DOES 1-100, individuals, and XYZ COMPANY”) who would try to sell his merch. The precautionary “injunctive and monetary relief” suit is reportedly in preparation for Chano’s upcoming tour.

Young Thug has delivered a video for his new song “All the Time.” The luxurious DAPS-directed visual finds Thugger partying in a luxurious mansion, relaxing in the pool on a swan shaped raft, hanging out with women, and even holding a snake.
Earlier this year the rapper shared “Safe,” a new cut along with a Garfield Larmond-directed video. He also recently appeared on Calvin Harris’ “Heatstroke” alongside Pharrell and Ariana Grande. Young Thug’s last album was 2016’s JEFFERY, so hopefully the new video means more new music is on the way.
Watch the video below.
Bruce Springsteen was a surprise guest at a jam session at the Asbury Park Music and Film Festival Friday night, with the singer joining fellow E Street Band members, Southside Johnny and other New Jersey rockers for a covers-filled set at Asbury Park’s Paramount Theatre.
Springsteen sang Little Richard’s “Lucille” and played guitar on a cover of Muddy Waters’ “Got My Mojo Workin’.” Steven Van Zandt opened the all-star gig by serving as frontman on “Blues is My Business” and Chuck Berry’s “Bye, Bye Johnny,” the Asbury Park Press reports.
The concert also featured the rarity “Ballad of Jesse James,” a track the then-Bruce Springsteen Band recorded in 1972 and remained unreleased until the arrival of the Born to Run companion album Chapter and Verse in 2016. For Friday night’s performance, founding E Street Band drummer Vini Lopez handled vocals.
The gig also reunited Springsteen with former E Street Band members Lopez, keyboardist David Sancious and drummer Ernest “Boom” Carter.
The jam session was held in celebration of Just Before the Dawn, a new documentary focused on the Upstage, a short-lived music venue in Asbury Park that served as a breeding ground for many of the artists who congregated onstage Friday night at the Paramount Theatre, including Springsteen, Van Zandt and other E Streeters.
“It’s great,” Springsteen told the Asbury Park Press after the show. “It’s nice to see new talent in Asbury and the old guys still cranking it out. It’s very enjoyable.”
