(Video) Check Out Lil Yachty’s FADER Mini-Documentary ‘Keep Sailing’

At midnight last night, Lil Yachty premiered his second official project, Summer Songs 2. The 14-track project includes features from G Herbo and Migos rapper Offset, as well as a handful of his friends. It also includes a track named “For Hot 97,” where Lil Boat attempts to prove to a doubtful Ebro that he really does have bars. Simultaneously, the Atlanta rapper premiered a new mini-doc that he created with FADER, Keep Sailing. Cop Summer Songs 2 on iTunes here, and check out the doc below.

(Photos) Clearly, Young Metro Trusts The FADER

Welp, looks like FADER mag can put away their bulletproof vests. They’ve obtained the trust of young Metro Boomin, and thus he appears on the cover of their April/May 2016 issue. Thanks to Future rapping the now-infamous tagline, the successful producer is now seeing a lot more mainstream fame, and is even selling his own merchandise. Sitting down with FADER, he discusses how he OJ The Juiceman was the first rapper to give him a shot, how his mother was so supportive she’d drive him roundtrip from St. Louis to Atlanta weekend after weekend so he could work with OJ, how he’s working on Views From The 6 and more. It’s a REALLY great read.

(Video) FADER Presents: Everything You Need To Know About RetcH

Who is RetcH? He’s a rapper from New Jersey, he had a very close relationship with the late A$AP Yams, and he is wild as f*ck. Now that we’ve got that squared away, the Hackensack native has a little more to reveal, and recently sat down with FADER to tell us all we needed to know. Get the 411 on the crazy Jersey up-and-comer below. (Check out his recent video for “Fuck Do You Mean” here.)

(Video) Fetty Wap & His Mom Explain His Eye In More Detail (Plus – Find Out How The Drake Collab Came About!)

As he was leaving Fallon last night, TMZ cameras stopped Fetty Wap, and asked him about his eye. Though he’s already explained why he only has one, Fetty included some new details we haven’t heard before, and Mama Wap was there to co-sign. (He’s also speaking SO much clearer than he has in previous interviews – a sign of what was likely some lovely media training!) He also spoke with FADER yesterday, and explained how the Drake collab came about:

Drake reached out through Instagram, Fetty said. “He sent me a DM, and I sent him my number. When I landed from Tampa a couple of days ago, and as soon as I landed and turned my phone off of airplane mode, he was FaceTiming from DC where he was playing ‘My Way’ at a club. He was like, ‘Yo, I want to cut the record tonight.’ Next thing I know, I checked my email and it was there.”

It’s A Social Experiment – Chance The Rapper Sets Aside His Solo Career For His Friends

It’s a social experiment, Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment that is. Chance The Rapper, 21-year-old Donnie, born Nico Segal, 27-year-old Nate Fox, 23-year-old Peter Conttontale (yes, like the rabbit) and Greg “Stix” Landfair Jr. compile the five-member unit on what’s to come; Surf. While we would like to think that Surf is a rap album coming from Chance, it’s not. Although he is a part of the process, the Chicagoan has decided to set aside his solo pieces of work, for the benefit of Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment – the band who began as Chance’s back-up in 2013. “Surf is a collaboration among friends of a like-mind. Everybody wants to compromise and everybody wants to work as a group,” Donnie tells Fader for their February/March issue. “It is an album that reflects the vision of Donnie Trumpet, with the assistance of the rest of us making those songs come to life,” adds another member. Fader took to L.A. to hang with the group – minus Stix, who was back in Chicago – where writer Andrew Nosnitsky bore witness to the team jumping from making music in the studio to going out and having fun. “Every day I literally wake up and figure out when I’m gonna be able to go to the studio,” Chance explains. “And in the meantime, I’m trying to do some very fun shit.” The foursome pondered on Venice Beach for the basketball courts, but they decided it may be too packed with rapper, The Game and…
