DJ Flume Goes To A Surf God’s Wave Pool, Doesn’t See ONE Floating BandAid Or Dirty Diaper. No Really.

Harley Streten aka DJ Flume somehow pulled some strings and went to Kelly Slater’s man made “Surf Ranch”! A wave pool that is sliiightly different than the wave pools you’re used to…sadly no throngs of people, couples making out, hairy guys blowing snot rockets, etc.

However, every wave is perfect thx to SCIENCE.

Now the question is, how to become friends with Kelly…. *Finger-tenting in progress*

“We spoke at length about the importance of maintaining the essence but not getting trapped in that and just trying to see it beyond,” – Q-Tip

After losing ATCQ founder, Phife Dog to diabetes earlier this year, Q-Tip and Jarobi White, managed to fill a tremendous void (emphasis on “fill” because there’s no way in hell you could replace Phife) with the help of Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Anderson Paak, Busta Rhymes, Elton John and Jack White.

Check out their performance on SNL, We Got It From Here, Thank You 4 Your Service, and listen to how these rap legends not only preserved their sound/identity but expanded it…all the while in complete reverence for their late brother. read more about the creative process here.

Ps – and then watch this because Chappelle is hilarious.

The EPIC 50th CMA Awards!

50th CMA Awards

50th CMA Awards

If you watched the 50th CMA Awards on ABC, you got an idea how incredible the anniversary celebration was. Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Charley Pride, Charlie Daniels and so many more were there, some performed and Randy Travis SANG. That’s huge — he hasn’t been able to speak for the last three years. It was an emotional night and a reminder of how incredible the music and people are that shaped our format. Also, Beyonce performed. What?! Yeah, I don’t know. But she was good.

Bruno Mars Has Been Writing Hits Since He Was 4 Years Old!

So Bruno Mars is on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, and inside he talks about the pressure to finish up his new album and make it his best work yet.

But there’s a hidden gem in this interview – he mentions the first song he ever wrote, for his Mom, when he was just 4 years old, saying:

“I think it was for her birthday or Mother’s Day,” Mars says, smiling at the memory. “I gave it to her on cassette. I don’t remember her reaction, but she probably bit my face off.” He smiles again. “She played that song forever.”

Rolling Stone also says it’s worth finding on Youtube if you like cute things, or life. And hey! I like both of those things! So I figured I’d save you the effort and share it here.

BRB, dying of adorableness.

Don’t forget to check out this week’s Slacker Top 40 to hear where Bruno’s latest song shows up on the chart of the most popular pop songs, according to the Slacker Nation!
