Having already added actor and master sandwich crafter to his post-Beastie Boys résumé, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz is getting into the advice game. The beloved rapper became the latest musician to take part in Rookie’s “Ask a Grown Man” series, tackling tried-and-true teen topics from kissing to breakups.
Horovitz’s first adorable nugget of advice urges a young girl to overcome her first-kiss fears and plant one right on her new boyfriend. “Go ahead and kiss! Go ahead and do it!” he exclaims, adding later: “There’s something really special about being really close in just the moment, and you don’t have to do anything else. No big thing to do about it. Just a quick little kiss.”
Elsewhere, Horovitz admits sometimes white lies — like, “It’s not you, it’s me” or “My parents don’t want me dating anyone” — can be necessary to get through an awkward breakup. The rapper also advises one girl to be upfront with her boyfriend who never takes the initiative to make plans, reminding her with a laugh, “Boys, for the most part, are not very observant, or all that together smart for that matter.”
Lastly, Horovitz goes deep on a question about overcoming everyday insecurities and feeling more confident: “I know that when I get down or feel alone or depressed, I make music and it makes me happy. I would say, think about the thing that makes you happiest and do that. If it’s drawing or dancing or listening to music or bowling, whatever it is that makes you happy, I would focus on that and you’ll definitely gain some confidence.”
Horovitz has been making the media rounds lately to promote While We’re Young, the new Noah Baumbach film in which he co-stars alongside Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts. The MC also recently joined forces with Num Pang, a Vietnamese sandwich shop in New York City, to create the pastrami-based “Ad-Rock Pang”; the proceeds from the sandwich will benefit the Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition and Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue.
You may have thought a Future video is the last place to look when you want a Nation of Islam prayer to break up your afternoon. You would be wrong. The codeine still splatters all over “March Madness” and its new video, but the song is anchored by what Future calls “tragic” violence perpetrated by police officers against people of color in America. Clips of such violence are interspersed throughout the video, which otherwise shows the rapper in isolation, pent up in dark rooms with blinding jewelry. “March Madness” is Future at his unhinged best, ever-changing cadences and evocative turns of phrase.
The tape from which the song is taken, 56 Nights, is named for DJ Esco, to whom the tape is officially credited, and the time he spent in a Dubai jail for having marijuana in the luggage he brought with him to play a show with Future. It’s the Atlanta rapper’s second project this year, after his collaborative tape with Zaytoven, Beast Mode. Last year was a busy one for the rapper as well, who followed up his sophomore album, Honest, with the sprawling, relentlessly dark Monster. The latter is still being promoted, a video for “Fuck Up Some Commas” having hit the Internet just this month. Future has also announced a sequel to his 2011 mixtape, Dirty Sprite.

Janelle Monae delivers a dexterous flow on “Yoga,” a new track with rising MC Jidenna that’s set to appear on The Eephus, a new compilation EP featuring tracks from the various artists on the R&B futurist’s Wondaland label.
Monae’s characteristically pristine vocal talents are on full display on “Yoga,” as she flips familiar melodies on their head, intricately layers her voice to create a dense spectrum of harmonies and relishes the ridiculousness of the track’s infectious refrain, “Baby bend over / Let your booty do that yoga.” The sentiment certainly fits the track’s sparse, trap-heavy production, over which Jidenna breezily muses in a sing-song voice, “She did that yoga / Looking for my loafers man, I woke up in a toga.”
“Yoga” marks the first new music from Monae since the 2013 release of her second album, The Electric Lady. The five-track Eephus EP is scheduled to arrive this summer, and will feature songs from Monae, Jidenna and other members of the Wondaland roster, including Roman GianArthur, St. Beauty and Deep Cotton. Previously, Jidenna and GianArthur teamed up for the latter’s single “Classic Man,” which will appear on the Eephus.
The Eephus marks Wondaland’s first project after striking a deal with L.A. Reid and Epic Records earlier this year after being courted by numerous major labels, as Billboard reported. “It’s not just one type of artist, but there’s a connective tissue,” Mikael Moore — Monae’s manager and official head of Wondaland — said of the tight-knit group. “It’s about the collective rather than individuals — Janelle is the proprietor, but they’re partners with her.”
