Country Singer Carrie Underwood performed at the Big Barrel Country Music Festival in Delaware last weekend, and decided to put her own twist on her 2012 hit single “See You Again.” Rather than singing the song, the former American Idol contestant remixed it with Wiz Khalifia’s “See You Again” featuring Charlie Puth. Being that both songs have the same name, Underwood merged the two beautifully.
In the video above, Underwood starts by singing the chorus, followed by her rapping to the first verse of Khalifa’s hit song, which became the theme song for the blockbuster hit Furious 7. Because Underwood did an amazing job, the crowd went berserk as the new mom started spitting the verse, totally on beat.
After the show, the 32-year-old tweeted to her fans, “Thanks to all who came out to the @BigBarrelFest! You were such an amazing crowd! I’m so happy there’s no way I’m gonna to [sic] sleep tonight!”

Just when you thought the impossible could and would never happen, it does.
The news crews from two separate San Francisco television stations were robbed at gunpoint by three masked men during a live taping of a news piece about the shooting of a tourist at Pier 14 in the Bay Area metropolis.
The video above doesn’t show the masked men or the actual robbery, however, KTVU reporter Cara Liu can be heard saying, “Hold on, hold on, wait…”, which is apparently when the masked men jumped out of their BMW and began pistol whipping KNTV camera operator Alan Waples. The robbers made off with two television cameras and two tripods; all of this happening at the pier along the Embarcadero at 6 am.

So, it’s only right that as Drake headlines Wireless Fest in London, he brings out Skepta to perform his biggest single, “Shutdown.” Catch some rough footage above.

This is the Nintendo PlayStation that almost was
It might seem crazy today, but in the early '90s Nintendo and Sony were working together on a video game accessory that'd add CD capabilities to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. There would also be a separate Sony console that'd play SNES …

Detroit natives DeJ Loaf and Big Sean hop on the beat together for “Back Up.” Featuring an 808-heavy beat that has DJ Mustard’s fingerprints all over it, Sean and Loaf trade verses on a track that has tons of club and radio appeal. DeJ is proving to be quite the hit maker and is quickly becoming one of the go-to artists for MCs looking to elevate their tracks. On “Back Up,” however, it’s DeJ’s show as Big Sean makes the pinch hit appearance playing the sidekick as DeJ flexes her muscles (and vocal chords) over the track. Check out “Back Up” above.
Thanks to the strength of her breakout hit “Try Me” and flashes of brilliance as a featured artist, DeJ Loaf was an obvious choice for this year’s Freshmen list. Check out her dope freestyle below:
Since bursting onto the scene with “I Don’t Like,” Chief Keef has stuck to making hardcore drill music that the streets–and youth– have eaten up. Keef’s style has been so entrenched in the drill scene that no one could have seen “Ain’t Missing You” coming. Dedicated to Blood Money, Keef’s cousin who was murdered last April, the Chicago MC switched his whole style up and dropped a pop-ish, country-ish ode to his family member that even features a singer on the hook. And it’s fire! Avid Keef listeners are used to hearing him mumble over tough drill beats, but on “Ain’t Missing You,” Keef enunciates his words and shows a softer side while spilling his heart out for his cousin. “Ain’t Missing You” is rumored to be on Keef’s upcoming FilmOn Music release. Give it a spin above.
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge unveil their Twelve Reasons To Die II album just in time for the holiday weekend. Featuring Raekwon, RZA, Vince Staples and Bilal, the follow up to Twelve Reasons To Die is another chapter in Ghost’s fictional mafioso tales. The concept album paints vivid pictures and sounds more like a screenplay for a gritty early ’70s mafioso flick and, if he really wanted to, Ghost could probably try his hand at screenwriting. Stream the project via The New York Times here.
The album is produced entirely by Younge and features a more sinister storyline than the original. Younge uses scores from Italian horror films as his inspiration and mixes it up with boom bap drums for production that RZA will certainly be proud of. Recorded entirely on analog tape to capture the essence of old soul vinyl albums, Twelve Reasons To Die II officially drops July 10.
Ghost won’t spend much time relishing in the moment as his long-awaited project with MF Doom seems to be in the works. Fans will get a chance to hear potential cuts from DOOMSTARKS. The duo is scheduled to perform at Miami’s III Points Festival in October and the performance will not be your regular run-of-the-mill program, which is to be expected whenever Ghost and Doom are involved. According to Pitchfork, Doom will be “transported Star Trek-style directly onto the III Points Festival stage,” and will appear on a live screen “from the other side of time.”
