Get the Latest from Wale, A$AP Rocky, Foo Fighters, the Courtneys and More in This Week's Music/Video Roundup
Published Dec 31, 2012No doubt, many of you enjoyed the yuletide holiday last week. Gifts weren't only nestled underneath Christmas trees, though, as a number of artists decided to offer up some online goodies— just in case Santa skipped your place.
First, Wale delivered his Folarin mixtape, which saw the Maybach Music Group spitter surrounded by pals like 2 Chainz, French Montana, Trinidad James and more. Clearly, Wale was in a giving mood as later that week, he offered up another new number, "Heaven in the Afternoon." Also dropping a full-length mixtape on Christmas Eve was producer Mike WiLL Made It, who gifted us his Est. in 1989 2.5, which featured guest spots from Rihanna, Chief Keef and Young Jeezy, among others.
Elsewhere, A$AP Rocky offered us a sneak peek of his upcoming LongLiveA$AP LP when he premiered a video for the title cut, which had him hanging out in a spooky, checker-board-tiled mansion. Big booty-loving spitter 2 Chainz, meanwhile, road a boat around a city in his video for "I'm Different," a sentiment further confirmed by his leopard-print suit and shoe-game-changing stuffed-ape-sneakers.
Despite being locked into our winter game, Vancouver fuzz-pop trio the Courtneys reminded us of sunnier days with their new video for "90210," which was filmed at the city's Third Beach. Foo Fighters felt nostalgic too, apparently, though they dug back way deeper than last summer when they covered Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll" at the Kennedy Center Opera House in Washington, DC. The performance took place December 2, but the footage leaked last week. Make sure you check it all out.
