Songstress Snoh Aalegra lays it all out there on her upcoming EP “Don’t Explain”. With bluesy vocals that echo Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill, the Swedish singer/songwriter pushes creativity to the limit, even mixing it up with singer/guitarist John Mayer, who provides guitar work on the track “Under The Influence”, which premieres on Billboard today. She told Billboard: “This album is a passion project that is very dear to my heart. It’s been so inspiring to have complete creative control and to just have fun creating and collaborating with people I admire greatly. Each and every person who is involved in this EP are beyond talented. All I can say is I feel blessed.” Aalegra’s “Don’t Explain”, which also includes collaborations with James Fauntleroy and DJ Dahi, will be released April 8. The A$AP Mob and TDE come together for A$AP Ferg and ScHoolboy Q’s new single. The visual for “Let It Bang” begins with a shout out to the Wu Wear clad Harlemite’s uncle Psycho and flashes back to 1996 New York. Brooklyn rapper Young Dirty Bastard plays the role of Psycho, and was, according to Ferg, a Wu Tang Clan fan and frequent of the neighborhood park.  Q also makes a cameo appearance and delivers some rhymes in honor of his “crackhead uncle.” Ferg’s sophomore effort, “Always Strive And Prosper”, is slated for release on April 22. Also on the video front, P-Funk master George Clinton puts soul in the solar system for the visual for “Ain’t That Funkin Kinda Hard On You (Remix)”, featuring Kendrick Lamar and Ice Cube. The Compton rapper mans the Mothership Connection with a cool sixteen as actor Michael Colyar transports from his cousin’s broken down car to the pimped out spacecraft. Dr. Funkenstein later reports for hook duty as Ice Cube delivers his street bars for a sound trip that’s out of this world. “Ain’t That Funkin Kinda Hard On You” first appeared on Funkadelic’s 2014 effort “First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate”, their first since 1981. Every now and then something incredible is born of a petition. The latest example involves rapper Snoop Dogg. The petition, titled “Get Snoop Dogg To Narrate The Whole Season Of Planet Earth”, came to existence recently and has generated enough signatures to get the attention of the rapper. The petition was inspired by videos where Snoop narrated the documentary series “Planet Earth”, giving the show  his own spin by calling it “Plizzanet Eart”. As the old saying goes, one thing lead to another and now “Planet Snoop” exists. The new original series features Snoop offering commentary on nature videos, following the same formula as before, but it will be more official this time and hosted exclusively on his media platform Merry Jane. Even better still is that the first episode has arrived and features what has been described as “an epic battle between a California ground squirrel and a snake narrated by the one and only Snoop Dogg.” Thank you Snoop.
