DXclusives – Hard Summer Music Festival Edition: Flosstradamus & Ty Dolla $ign

At the Hard Summer Music Festival, DX caught up with both Flosstradamus and Ty Dolla $ign.

Speaking with DX Media Editor Shirley Ju, the Chicago duo Flosstradamus divulges on how it was performing at Lollapalooza in their hometown and explains why they think old heads not approving the new wave of Hip Hop is a good thing.

“I think it’s cool because the one thing that we like to do and that we’ve done so far, is that the old heads if they start talking shit on you, like “that’s not the way it should be,” then you’re doing something right,” Autobot says. “I feel like that’s what’s going on in Hip Hop right now. There’s a bunch of old heads right now that are mad at what’s happening, and I think that’s the best thing. It’s pushing it forward and it’s making it fun again.”

Features Editor Ural Garrett got a chance to sit down with Taylor Gang’s Ty Dolla $ign to discuss politics and his upcoming project Campaign.

“It’s more than just a turnt up song for the club,” he reveals. “The whole project is a message. I got The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan doing some spoken word. I got YG, Vic Mensa and big features. You’ve already heard the ‘Campaign’ single with Future. I got my brother Meek Mill who made a banger. Don’t sleep on my nigga Meek Mill. That man has always been incredible. We got Trey Songz and Wiz Khalifa.”
