Statik Selektah Heats Up 2020’s Playlist With ‘The Balancing Act’

Published

on

Statik Selektah’s new joint hit streaming platforms this morning. It’s every bit as nice as “Keep It Moving” suggested it would be. The beats are of the smoothed-out hip hop variety. The Balancing Act plays like a classic Tribe Called Quest album. Statik punctuates the comparison with the sample on “No Substitute.” In terms of features, it doesn’t get much better than: Black Thought, Nas, Joey Bada$$, 2 Chainz, Killer Mike, Dave East, Method Man, Jadakiss, Styles P, Benny The Butcher, Lil Fame, Bun B, and Havoc to name a few. Need we say more? Peep the album below.

Music + Skate x 3 Days = Tony Hawk’s Weekend Jam 2022

Published

on

The Tony Hawk Weekend Jam 2022 – which will be held May 12-15 in Las Vegas – is set to be an epic experience. Headliners include Modest Mouse, Devo, Descendants, and of course the Birdman himself, plus plenty of events to watch and participate in. But that’s not the half of it.

This event is described as “a three-day Las Vegas takeover, curated by Tony Hawk himself. Featuring skate competitions, the bands that defined skate culture, and the video games that made it all mainstream.”

There’s that, plus a Vert Alert exhibition, contests, shopping, food, a gaming lounge, movies, a street park setup, and a whole lot more at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. The package includes all that plus accommodation for the weekend and you can snag your tix right here.

No idea how the GOAT found time in his schedule to host a festival, do a documentary, run a charity, make NFTs, sell merch, appear in a music video, mangle his hands in an empty pool, and get continually confused for a celebrity lookalike while going about his daily business. It’s a lot.

The skater lineup so far is as follows:

As for music, you can expect live performances from the following:

  • Modest Mouse
  • Descendents
  • DEVO
  • X
  • Cold Cave
  • The Vandals
  • Warish (fronted by Riley Hawk)
  • Rough Francis
  • The Downhill Jam
