Daily Round-Up For April 6, 2013
Hello and happy Saturday everybody! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s collection of all of the most important and most interesting news to surface in the wonderful world of independent and popular music. We are into the weekend now, and I hope that you are all relaxing as best you can. That was a tough week. But right now, all that matters is the music and the news. So let’s jump right in!
There has been a lot of talk and speculation revolving around rapper Kid Cudi’s random and abrupt split from Kanye West’s record label G.O.O.D. Music. But no one as high up on the music food chain or as interesting a character as Big Sean has spoken out on the matter, until now. Big Sean gave an interview in which he discusses Cudi’s leave and other topics. If you’d like to check it out, you can follow the link back to 2dopeboyz.
Big Sean, on top of giving that interview, also came out with a new track today! You can check out “Switch Up,” which features a guest verse from Common, by following the link back to the Music Ninja.
One of my favorite electronic producers, Detroit-based self-made superstar Griz, has come out with a fresh new single! You can listen to the new track, which Griz is calling “Gettin’ Live,” by following the link back to the electronic overlords of the Dancing Astronaut.
In some super awesome news, Coachella has been granted clearance to hold its positively sensational annual music festival every year through 2030. So if you’re itching to go to Coachella one of these years, you have a guaranteed 17 years to arrange a visit to the festival.

Apparently the super awesome rap star Mos Def has come out with a previously unreleased new song, featuring production credits from the one and only Kanye West! It has been titled “The Light Is Not Afraid of the Dark.” If you are interested in checking out the song (which you totally should), you can follow the link back to Consequence of Sound.
In some news that may or may not be interesting, rapper T.I. recently did an interview with DJ Skee in which he announced a new mixtape, which is being called Grand Hu$tle. We’ll see how that goes!
