Legendary R&B group TLC has collaborated with rapper Snoop Dogg on the single “Way Back”, and for the visual, the group has taken on his legendary West Coast style too. The clip finds the group throwing a jumping block party/cookout in a West Coast neighborhood complete with lowriders with hydraulics. They dance on the roof and in the driveway as well, giving viewers their classic choreography. Snoop Dogg appears in the video in a separate vignette. “Way Back” is taken from the group’s highly anticipated, crowd sourced self-titled album, which is due on June 30. Following years of building a solid buzz as well as a solid fan base, Top Dawg Entertainment signee SZA is finally ready to release her full length debut studio effort “Ctrl”, which is due June 9, and she’s making the promo rounds. Today, she stopped by Power 105’s The Breakfast Club to discuss what she’s been up to. During the nearly one hour interview, she talked about her forthcoming album, and  working with Travis Scott and Kendrick Lamar. In addition, she discussed side chick culture, relationships, ex-boyfriends and one ex-boyfriend she caught cheating in the worst way. Independent artist J. Stephenz is ready to step into the spotlight with the release of his debut project, “ItzSomethinAboutthis; The EP.” The Mississippi raised, Ohio based singer/rapper is prepared to share his aspirations with the world through the 7 track project. The EP carries an undeniable Hip Hop/R&B influence from the 90s and 2000s. The single “Tonight”, on which he collaborates with rapper C. Struggs, finds him paying homage to the old school with a sexy vocal sample of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing.” The track delivers a head bobbing bounce and shuttering synth. After showing his mic skills with rap flows, he slows things down with the slow jam “Let You Go (Don’t Go).” Stephenz stated that music is his passion and it’s time for the world to hear. Judging from the material shared thus far, he has a bright future ahead of him. Producer London on da Track has been riding a tidal wave of success since 2014, having produced tracks for T.I, Tyga and Young Thug. The Atlanta native’s lengthy resume also includes production work for YG. Tory Lanez, Blac Youngsta, Gucci Mane and Drake. Fans who follow him on social media site Instagram know he’s been in the studio with Nicki Minaj, Migos’ Quavo, 808 Mafia, PARTNEXTDOOR and Kodak Black. Production credits aside, his goal at present is to make the transition from sound board to microphone as an artist. As a member of the rap group Dem Guys while a teenager, he’s no stranger to spitting rapid fire rhymes and believes that releasing the album “Who Would’ve Known” could expand his brand. Without a doubt, he has a bright future ahead of him.
