We knew something sounded familiar here. Glad our homies The Stuyvesants got credit where due on this track that was initially ganked. For those unfamiliar, the awesome instrumental is called “Stoops, Park, & Rooftops.”

Will Smith’s young man Jaden is following in his father’s rappity rap steps with his new single called “The Coolest.” Got kind of a Wiz Khalifa type flow going on, and he really is pretty damn adorable.

Update: KING (NY Debut) to Replace Andreya Triana at SummerStage – 6/25

KING will play their much anticipated New York City debut at our SummerStage party this Saturday, June 25th, joining the line up to replace previously announced Andreya Triana. In case you haven’t heard of this group yet, get ready to be excited. A sublime blend of 3 female voices delivering original soul material that will take you out of the ordinary. With only one release under their belt, The Story EP, these ladies are making what they do seem easy and garnering fans like Prince and Erykah Badu for whom they already have opened. Make sure you stop by the park on Saturday and bring some friends with you because Giant Step is taking over the city this weekend.
