Lil Wayne is really not letting his health scare hold him back. Since being released from the hospital on Tuesday morning after back to back seizures the day prior, Weezy has already hit the stage in Los Angeles, and now releases a new music video. No word on where the track, “Skate It Off,” will live…but hopefully it’s Dedication 6!
Check out the video below, as well as new visuals from Nyck Caution and Joey Bada$$, YG‘s Funk Flex freestyle and more.
In honor of the late Capital STEEZ, who passed in December of 2012, Pro Era has announced their second annual STEEZ Day concert. This year, they move the festivities over to the west coast – which is odd, considering they all hail from NYC.
On Thursday, July 7, Pro Era (Joey Bada$$, Nyck Caution, CJ Fly and Kirk Knight) as well as the A$AP Mob, Danny Brown, Raury and more will take over The Novo in Los Angeles, with proceeds going to benefit STEEZ’s family. For tickets and more info, head here.
It’s human to not want to feel alone. Every day on some level (subconscious or non) we’re searching for someone who understands our journey and what we’re going through, even if we’re unable to put it into words ourselves. Mainstream rap music is overrun with too many personalities that talk at you, rather than to you and with you. Perhaps that’s what drew us to our latest interview subject.
Enter Nyck Caution, the sole white rapper in the world-famous Pro Era collective. Aside from being a contender for the 2016 XXL Freshman Class, Caution‘s music speaks to the youth of the world that’s desperately seeking for a better tomorrow, even if that utopia only exists in their mind or in their headphones. This summer looks incredibly promising for the Brooklyn kid, who also just turned 22 in January. Hip-hop fans across the country will be able to check out Nyck Caution on tour with Cam’ron on The Smoker’s Club Tour, which also features Smoke DZA, The Underachievers, G-Herbo, and a few more.
In our interview, we got Nyck to dish out his recipe for success in the studio, the moment he realized his own potential, and how his spirituality shaped his latest project, Disguise The Limit, available for streaming on Soundcloud.
