Between announcing “a big project” with Timbaland and today’s collaboration with Kelela & DJ Dahi, comes the final version of ‘Don’t Tell Nobody’, Tink’s slow burner featuring Jeremiah Internz. A tag heavy sample of the song has been scattered around the internets for a while now, but today sees the fully loaded version.

Rising starlets and PinBoard faves Kelela and Tink team up with ‘Worst Behaviour’ producer DJ Dahi as part of YoursTruly’s ‘Songs from Scratch’ series. The full track, titled ‘Want It’, will premiere later today (U.S time) but until then watch as the three navigate being in the studio together and collectively tell their own stories. Looking forward to this one.

Update: Listen to the full version of ‘Want It’ below. Smash.

Atlanta native Raury certifies the stakes following on from his impressive ‘God’s Whisper’ debut with a brand new single called ‘Sunshine’; a down-tempo dedicated to his high school prom. Featuring an ambrosial female vocal and a confident set of verses from the young rapper, ‘Sunshine’ goes a long way in securing our already piqued interest. Looking forward to seeing this guy develop his skills.

‘Tomorrow’ featuring veteran soul singer Raheem DeVaughn is the second single lifted from The Roots’ forthcoming album …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin. The uncomplicated track, led by a simple piano and shuffling drums is accompanied exclusively by DeVaughn’s sanguine performance – disrupted only by a flurry of instrumentation that culminates the songs outro.

Brooke Candy has made a name for herself by creating outlandish, often NSFW videos and by collaborating with interweb fascinators Grimes and Charlie XCX. Now she’s readying the release of her debut EP Opulence, which is executively produced by songwriting high-priestess Sia. The video for the EP’s title track is every bit the club-kid spectacle Candy has become known for. Gaga will not be pleased. Nor will the ball girls.

which has been executively produced by songwriting high-priestess Sia and launches festivities with a new video for the projects title track.

Unquestionably the most intriguing song tracklisted on Future’s Honest album has been the one marked with a feature from man-God Andre 3000. Combining worlds, both Future and 3 Stacks bring their respective charms on ‘Benz Friendz (Watchutola)’, but of course – get on a record with André Lauren Benjamin and understand your place. This feels greater than “just a” Future song.

The legendary Roots crew return following their acclaimed Undun LP in 2011 with ‘When the People Cheer’, the first single taken off their forthcoming album … And Then You Shoot Your Cousin. Bathed in the thoughtful overtones Roots fans have become accustomed too, the track  serves a nocturne beat which Black Thought uses to trace his contemplative verses. This may not be the most “exciting” single floating around but Roots heads will appreciate it. We’re nodding.

Every year it seems Coachella manages to ensemble and even more exciting motley crew of performers to headline their stages. This year they outdid themselves by reuniting one of hip hop’s most beloved group – Outkast – following a near 8-year hiatus. Add to that show stopping performances from Pharrell Williams, Disclosure, Nas, A$AP Ferg, Solange, Warpaint, Lana Del Rey, Banks and heaps of others, not to mention the special guests some of these artists brought out including Gwen Stefani, Busta Rhymes, Jay-Z, Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Juicy J et el.

As the first weekend comes to an end, we’ve compiled some of the best performances from the past two days for you to sit back and enjoy. We’ll keep adding more full performances as they become available. And we’ll do the same with next weekends festivities too. Watch Outkast’s set up top and all the others after the jump.

Philly’s DonChristian has released a curious new mixtape called Renzo Piano which meshes his experimental rap style, with a potent mix of sounds that stretch beyond the empirical sounds of hip hop. Boasting expansive drums, echoey snares and murky chords Renzo Piano is based largely on an aesthetic attributed to contemporary R&B. The tape also features a guest verses from our boy LE1F.

Sunday’s are normally about catching a vibe but fuck it, – you need this. Melé teams up with Nu Brand Flexx’s Boya Dee and Peigh on ‘I Like It’, a  new booty anthem built around trap foundations and grime aesthetics. Never mind that hangover you’re nursing, turn this up and piss your neighbours off.
