  • Happy New Year! Last night, Kendrick Lamar decided to end 2015 with a 7-minute short film called God Is Gangsta. It features tracks from his acclaimed album To Pimp a Butterfly, “u” and “For Sale? (Interlude).” Watch Kendrick rap and go clubbing in Paris below. [Pitchfork]

  • Kanye West has been busy working on his follow up to 2013’s Yeezy for a while now. He’s shared a new song called “FACTS”, which is basically 3 and a half minutes of him bragging on his own shoe line and taking a dig at Nike. Kanye continues to be the perfect model of humility. [CoS]

  • Rapper Travis Scott released his debut album last year, and to close out 2015, last night, he dropped a surprise collaboration with the Weeknd. “Wonderful” is a seductive dance track that makes the perfect addition to the Weekend’s repertoire. [Stereogum]
