CREED II: The Album Is Out Now Soundtrack Feat. Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, and More

Interscope Records is thrilled to announce the release of Creed II: The Album— the original motion picture soundtrack for the latest installment in the legendary Rocky saga. Executive-produced by Grammy-Award-winning producer/songwriter Mike WiLL Made-It, Creed II: The Album features appearances by more than two dozen of the biggest names in hip-hop.

Listen to Creed II: The Album here!

Creed II: The Album includes two previously released singles: “Kill ‘Em With Success” by Eearz, ScHoolboy Q & 2 Chainz, and “The Mantra” by Pharrell & Kendrick Lamar. In addition, the soundtrack features J. Cole, Rae Sremmurd, Trouble, Lil Wayne, Nas, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj, A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Vince Staples, Young Thug, and more.

Due out November 21 and directed by Steven Caple Jr., Creed II stars Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone. In creating Creed II: The Album, Mike WiLL collaborated directly with Jordan and Caple Jr., as well as with composer Ludwig Göransson and music supervisors Fam Rothstein and Jen Malone.

“There was a time where movie soundtracks had people just as excited as am artist’s album, and that’s the feeling I was going for when creating this project,” says Mike WiLL. “After people hear the music, I want them to say movie soundtracks are back.”

The founder of Ear Drummer Records, Mike WiLL is the mastermind behind such massive hits as Beyoncé’s “Formation,” Kendrick Lamar’s Grammy Award-winning and seven-times-platinum “HUMBLE.,” and Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles,” which spent seven weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Day Two of Lollapalooza

The BMI Stage at Lollapalooza rocks on for day two of the famous festival. From pop and rock to hip-hop and EDM, the BMI Stage has a little something for everyone. Post-punk/rock band Mainland hits the stage first, followed by hip-hop blending emo rocker nothing,nowhere. Infamous trio CKY are prepared to show how far they’ve come since their days on the hit TV-series Jackass and Australian exports Chase Atlantic will keep the music pumping with their alt-pop vibes. Rising rap star, Buddy, will hit the stage next with a high energy set before R.LUM.R rounds out the performances with his signature smooth soul grooves.

BMI STAGE SCHEDULE – FRIDAY, AUGUST 3rd

MAINLAND | 1:00-1:40pm

Finding elegance in simplicity, California-via-Brooklyn band Mainland play a passionate blend of powerful rock rife with soaring choruses and chiming hooks that recalls garage-y New York City bands from the turn of the millennium. After independently releasing their Shiner EP in 2014, they landed a deal with 300 Entertainment as one of the label’s marquee acts. Following the release of the Outcast EP a year later, they dropped fan-favorite singles such as “Beggars” and “Permission Slip” – which both amassed over 1 million Spotify streams each. Between touring, the musicians recorded the songs comprising their 2018 full-length debut, led by the single “I Found God,” about the spiritual connection that arises when you experience real love communicated through sounds and visuals.

nothing,nowhere.2:10 – 2:50pm

The enigmatic guise of Vermont singer/songwriter Joe Mulherin, nothing,nowhere. plays an introspective blend of hip-hop and guitar-driven emo rock. While he continually hides his face in videos and promotional photographs, Mulherin’s lyrics pull out all stops in baring his soul. His most recent album, Ruiner, is an emotive exercise in catchy catharsis.

CKY | 3:20 – 4:00pm

Notorious in the 2000’s for their raucous sound and anarchic, hard-partying skate-punk aesthetic both onstage and off, Pennsylvania’s CKY are back with 2017’s The Phoenix, their first new album in eight years. While not necessarily a kinder, gentler ensemble, the CKY of 2018 is comprised of grown men who are feverishly devoted to delivering rock from its pretentious doldrums and serving up their music in as raw and authentic a manner as possible

CHASE ATLANTIC | 4:30 – 5:10pm

Chase Atlantic was formed by brothers, Mitchel Cave and Clinton Cave, and their longtime friend, Christian Anthony. The trio produces, performs, and passionately conjures up dark alternative pop punctuated by rock and R&B. This Australian group blurs the lines between a nocturnal aesthetic and primal bliss on their 2017 self-titled debut for Warner Bros. Records. Since forming in 2011, the trio has packed multiple headline tours across Australia, released two successful independent EPs, Dalliance [2014] and Nostalgia [2015], and spawned a viral single with “Friends” which garnered over 2.7 million Spotify plays. Now, their first single “Church” invites everyone to congregate in their world.

BUDDY | 5:40 – 6:20pm

While he hails from the hip-hop-heavy streets of Compton, CA, Buddy (a.k.a. Simmie Sims III) is devoted to a message of positivity. Initially signed by Pharrell and tapped for collaborations with Kendrick Lamar and Chance the Rapper, Buddy’s restless muse demanded that he pursue his own path, paving the way for his full-length album, Harlan & Alondra, a lush mix of retro R&B, chilled-out rap and jam-heavy funk, featuring cameos from A$AP Ferg and Ty Dolla Sign. “It’s beautiful day music,” says Buddy of his optimistic debut.

R.LUM.R | 6:50 – 7:30pm

Broadly praised by outlets like NPR Music, The New York Times, Complex, Vibe, Billboard and Rolling Stone (who called him “an artist you need to know”), R. LUM. R, also known as Reginald Lamar Williams, Jr., is an ascendant R&B singer/songwriter creating warm, soulful music that is resonating with listeners. Romanced and inspired by the city’s song-storytelling tradition, R.LUM.R has settled in Nashville, where he’s been steadily building a following with his acoustic guitar, piercing falsetto and original songs. On his debut EP, After Image, all six tracks were recorded live in single takes, augmented by a string quartet. Asked to describe his music, he says “it’s ‘R&B/singer-songwriter/soul/electronic, but,” he adds, “I don’t want to limit myself.”

“There is a cycle to everything – art, culture, design, life – it’s always moving from present to future. ComplexCon has this cycle, where so many ideas are swirling, the atmosphere is charged with potential and from that energy, amazing ideas, new interpretations, and collaborations are formed and the cycle continues,” said Takashi Murakami. “There is chaos in the world right now but also an incredible movement of young people rising up to create something better and from that energy new ideas and movements are forming ripples through everything in culture. It was important to embrace this at ComplexCon this year.”

Hip-hop superstars A$AP Rocky and Famous Dex came together once again to finally drop the long anticipated music video for their hot single, “Pick It Up.”

The AWGE/Hidji Films directed visuals took place in New Jersey with Dex and A$AP submerged in an crazy flea market, surrounded with beautiful women and bootleg fashions. The FKi produced record was released in October of 2017 exclusively with Complex. Along with the premiere, Dex announced his debut album, Dex Meets Dexter. The instant success of “Pick It Up” shouldn’t come as a surprise as Complex called the record “exciting,” XXL referred to it as a, “potential club banger,” and Hot New Hip-Hop stated, “The song itself certainly lives up to the hype, and both rappers play to their strengths.”

After a few short weeks, the song entered the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Now the record is certified Gold, currently sits at #77 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has over 93 million total streams.

Since he splashed on the scene in 2015, Famous Dex has had the Internet talking. After signing with 300 Entertainment and Rich the Kid’s Rich Forever label imprint, Dex released viral hits like “Drip From My Walk” and “Hit Em Wit It.” The Chicago native soon caught the attention of A$AP Ferg, appearing on two records from his latest mixtape, Still Striving. After making an incredible impression on the A$AP Mob, Dexter connected with the group’s frontman, A$AP Rocky for an unforgettable collaboration, “Pick It Up.”

Famous Dex’s debut album, Dex Meets Dexter will be available for fans this Spring. Take a look at the “Pick It Up” video below!

Interscope Records emcee Dreezy recently teamed up with 6LACK and Kodak Black to let out a few frustrations on a track titled “Spar.”The animated video for “Spar” uses friendly, energetic visuals to convey serious, important issues about America’s current political turmoil. The video was created by Tristan Zammit, whose collaborated with the likes of Lil Yatchy and A$AP Ferg.
