Wale’s much-anticipated new mixtape, More About Nothing, has finally arrived and is available for free download here through Rap Radar. The DJ Omega-produced mixtape is a follow up to his Interscope debut, Attention Deficit.
This week, GPWW brings us back and forth through time with some throwbacks to Marvin Gaye and Neil Young, new artists approved by Gilles, as well as a few tracks off The Roots‘ new album, How I Got Over, a remixed song off of Big Boi’s Sir Luscious Left Foot, and his usual mix of music from all over the globe.
A short while ago we brought you Corinne Bailey Rae’s seductive video for her song, “Closer,” off of her most recent album, The Sea. That’s why we’re excited about this new take on the song by soul singer and songwriter Jesse Boykins III. The Brooklyn based up-and-comer shows off his falsetto throughout the cover, which you can download at Soul Culture.
Also, if you’re a New Yorker or just in the area, you can catch Corinne Bailey Rae performing on The Beach at Governor’s Island on August 6th with Sondre Lerche.
