The actor turned rapper held nothing back when discussing how he keeps it 100% authentic, and let loose a few stories from his past that may surprise a few fans who are use to the care free, easy going Gambino. At the end of the interview, Bino let off a monster freestyle over Hit Boys jam, “Grinding my Whole Life.” Peep the free style, and the full interview below.

I mentioned the other day when TassNata dropped “Walking Away” that he had a new joint coming this week. That time has come. Before Mourning, an album TassNata has been secretly working on for the past while is near completion. Personally, I can be more excited. Which is why I’m happy to premiere this new tune and the first single off Before Mourning – “For The Summer” featuring Junia-T & Iman Omari. Produced by Snazz, this ode to summertime is one to cap off what was an amazing summer. For myself, TassNata, Junia-T, Iman Omari and without a doubt all of you! Though this isn’t your ordinary summer tune. This is a crack the bottle, vibe out kind of tune. “Summer nights I like a fire with the music loud. Rapping, I amuse the crowd, what happens as I move around”. This one is for the summer! We’ll probably party til the suns up! As the warm weather fades, this couldn’t be a more perfect joint to capture those last moments. Don’t take it all from me though, TassNata spoke on what his summer was like in LA with Junia-T, gave us an exclusive behind the scenes story from the video shoot for “For The Summer” and more! *There’s also some exclusive pictures from their time over there you can peep!*

HEAT! Fresh Kils and Uncle Fester (together known as The Extremities) are back at it again with another routine, this time blending Portishead’s “Strangers” and “Sour Times” with O.C.’s “Time’s Up” to create “Sour Times Up” — not just a clever name-twist but a dope combination from two unexpected corners of the music world. Even better, the guys were kind enough to give us the honours of premiering it. The routine comes as the Toronto/Halifax duo prepare to embark on a U.S. tour to promote their new album, Instruments. Check out the routine below and read the mini-interview after the jump.
