Kanye West's forthcoming seventh LP SWISH (formerly known as So Help Me God), doesn't have a release date and it seems like one isn't coming anytime soon. Pusha T, one of Kanye's closest collaborators who was recently named president of Kanye's label GOOD Music, recently gave an interview where he said even he doesn't know when the album is coming. Yeezy Season may or may not be approaching.

You can read Rolling Stone's cover story on 5 Seconds of Summer - "Inside the Wild Life of the World's Hottest Band."
"Seventy-five percent of our lives is proving we're a real band," says Irwin. "We're getting good at it now. We don't want to just be, like, for girls. We want to be for everyone. That's the great mission that we have. I'm already seeing a few male fans start to pop up, and that's cool. If the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and all those guys can do it, we can do it, too."

Future is not shy about his love for lean, the Sprite and cough medicine mixture, going so far as to name his recent album DS2 (Dirty Sprite 2) for it. It seems like Robitussin might reciprocate, with a recent ad featuring a colorful cloud of germs bearing a striking resemblance to DS2's art. Check out the ad and the art in the replies to compare and let me know if maybe I'm seeing things.

Kendrick Lamar, who received some criticism for the lyrics on his To Pimp A Butterfly track "The Blacker The Berry" for hewing closely to respectability politics, has shed some more light on the line and clarified it in an interview with NPR. Lamar said "The message I’m sending to myself — I can’t change the world until I change myself first, for instance, when Chad [Keaton, a childhood friend,] was killed, I can’t disregard the emotion of me relapsing and feeling the same anger that I felt when I was 16, 17 — when I wanted the next family to hurt, because you made my family hurt. Them emotions were still running in me, thinking about him being slain like that. Whether I’m a rap star or...

David Lowery has filed a $150 million class-action lawsuit against Spotify stating that the service distributes copyrighted content without the proper licenses.
At the crux of the suit is Lowery’s claim that Spotify has created a “$17 to $25 million reserve” to pay royalties to artists whose work it has streamed without licensing, but it hasn’t bothered to find those artists to make payment.

“Our argument is, we’re not that hard to track down,” Victor Krummenacher, a member of Camper Van Beethoven eligible to participate in the suit, told BuzzFeed News. “If [BuzzFeed] can track me down — and I’m not a principal in the suit — Spotify should be able to track us down to license our songs.”

Jeff Weiss, writing for Pitchfork, goes long on the two beefs that helped define Drake's (and hip-hop's) 2015: the hot one with Meek Mill and the cold one with Kendrick Lamar:
But it’s more than a simple dialectic between art and commerce. Kendrick’s appearance on Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” remix mars any notion of false purity; Drake has surely written a sincere song or two that doesn’t try to turn a Hooters waitress into Helen of Troy. They’re ultimately wrestling for the throne of an art form with plenty of room for both to co-exist.

Update: An official statement from the band can be read here.
There is no easy way to say this…our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family.
