Multiplatinum-certified rapper, artist, and visionary 21 Savage returns with one of the most anticipated hip-hop albums of 2018 and his second full-length, I Am > I Was. The new album marks another evolution for the Atlanta trailblazer. His razor sharp flows, clever ad-libs, smooth delivery, big screen-ready lyrics, and incisive hooks cut deeper than ever before. At the same time, he gets more personal and, as a result, more powerful. This is 21 Savage.
Reel Big Fish was one of the legions of SoCal ska-punk bands to edge into the mainstream following the mid-’90s success of No Doubt and Sublime. Distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, juvenile humor, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic shards of ska, the group cultivated an underground following that broke into the mainstream when their single “Sell Out” became a modern rock radio and MTV favorite. Perennial Warped Tour favorites, the band continues to tour relentlessly (over 250 shows per year!), both in the US and across the globe. Still fronted by original lead singer and song writer Aaron Barrett, the band is back with their new album, LIFE SUCKS...LET'S DANCE! The disc, the first studio release since 2012, features 14 brand new tracks.
