Watch Kevin Gates Perform In Boston On The By Any Means Tour 

Last week, Kevin Gates brought his By Any Means Tour to Boston, MA. The Louisiana rapper delivered an unbelievable performance at Brighton Music Hall. He satisfied the crowd by performing tracks off all three of his most recent projects: Luca Brasi Story, Stranger Than Fiction and By Any Means.

 I’ve always heard good things about his performances specifically his outing at A3C, but I finally got the opportunity to witness it for myself. From beginning to end, he was in his zone,  bringing forth a set that was intimate but also very energetic. Watch him perform cuts such as “Arm & Hammer,” “Neon Lights,” “Posed To Be In Love,” “Don’t Know,” and much more below. Stay tuned for some exclusive photos as well.

Childish Gambino – Candler Road

Gambino Gov

“I’m doing something, stay with it.” – Childish Gambino

Nothing was the same after Childish Gambino‘s album Because the Internet hit iTunes shelves at the beginning of December last year. It’s still doing numbers by the way. Having sold over 320,000 copies in just under 10 months, Gambino has certainly made it clear that what he is doing is no joke and he is taking this music thing very seriously. I’m not going to go on much longer than that, because I really don’t have to. If you are still dismissing the talent here, then that’s your issue and it is what it is.

His latest track comes in the form of “Candler Road,” a track that holds true to the chart-topping sound that Gambino has been building. On this cut, he is fiery with a determined demeanor that evolves into to a level-headed and leisurely delivery over an instrumental that is filled with electric notes and deep drums. If you know anything about Childish Gambino’s work ethic, then you know he’s working on something that will continue to set him apart. Who knows when we will see what is next, but whenever we do, it will be big.
