After rocking through “The Other Side” Murs and Fash follow that up with another single off their This Generation project.
Murs and Fashawn are the first artists to participate in my dude Jake Money‘s new Standing Room Only project. An ongoing series that will showcase touring artists stopping in Minneapolis and performing cuts with the house band. Up top you can watch the This Generation duo perform “The Other Side” and after the jump you can listen to their live renditions of “Slash Gordan” and “Stone Cold.”

This year Paid Dues Festival had 23,000+ music lovers in attendance to witness some of the biggest and influential acts in hip-hop. Artists featured on the lineup included Fashawn and Murs, Joey Bada$$, Juicy J and the special guests of the night, Black Hippy.
From Kendrick Lamar having a notable set at 2012′s Paid Dues to Black Hippy headlining this year’s festival, it goes to show that TDE is a dominant figure in today’s music. Opening up with the remix to Ab-Soul’s “Black Lip Bastard (Remix)“, the crew emerged from fog to deliver an energetic set for the excited fans. After that performance, the Black Hippy members had their own individual sets starting with Jay Rock, followed by Ab-Soul, Schoolboy Q and then last but not least, Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick did songs from his critically-acclaimed album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City. He even considered performing “Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst” after seeing the engagement he and the crowd had, but decided to end with “Cartoons and Cereal”. Check out some of the dopehouse’s shots of the event down bottom.

Continuing our Freestyle Sessions series with Soul Assassins Radio, Fashawn kicked some bars from his guest spot on Alchemist’s “Oleg’s Flight” and the verses were repurposed over a beat from SA’s Worldwardrew.
Fashawn’s latest freelease, for those that do not know, also came in an untagged version with three bonus tracks. You can actually stream that version down bottom, and you can head over to DJBooth to cop it.
Before Johaz and Exile drop off their collaborative project on January 15th, the duo hit us with a mixtape the other day that features the like of Blu, Aloe Blacc, Fashawn and more. And while Mek posted it when it dropped, I felt it got overlooked because he posted it under a video. So in an effort to give the project some more shine, I’m making another post for a track that features a couple 2dope favorites. Check track three below then head here for a stream/download of the entire project.

While at Midtown BarFly in Sacramento, I got a chance to delve into the mind of Boy Meets World‘s creator Fashawn. We chatted it up and discussed topics such as his new mixtape, Champagne & Styrofoam Cups and the origin behind the title. He also shares his thoughts on the fans reception of his collaborative effort, This Generation, co starring Murs, as well as his upcoming project, The Ecology, which will be 100% produced by the one and only Exile.
