Surfer Blood founder dies at 27 22 replies

Thomas Fekete, co-founder and guitarist for the indie rock band Surfer Blood, has just recently passed away in his sleep. Fekete was diagnosed with a rare form of aggressive cancer last year, where he set up a GoFundMe Campaign to help pay for his medical costs.

His wife wrote the following:

Our sweet Thomas passed on last night, peacefully in his sleep, holding my hand. With one last sigh, he let go of the burden of pain and suffering that he has been bravely carrying for so long. I am full of comfort knowing that he is now free, and long for the day I get to be with him again.

May we all carry on Thomas' legacy by being the very best versions of ourselves for the rest of our days, and do as much as we can to help others in his honor. If we can strive to be half the person Thomas was, this world will be a better place.

I plan to host a celebration of his life here on the beach in South Florida, the first weekend of July, jus ...more

Gucci Mane walks free, releases mixtape 38 replies

Gloriously enigmatic trap Jehovah Gucci Mane has been released from prison 4 months ahead of his originally planned September release. Though no official reason for the early release has been given, it is most likely attributed to a combination of good behavior and the severe global depression over his recently slacking mixtape output, having dropped down to a mere 3 releases in 2016 instead of his usual 600.

Gucci Mane's first two tweets since freedom were pictures of song lyrics. 1017 Records later confirmed on twitter that "Gucci Free," the rapper's 103rd mixtape, is set to release May 27th. It was recorded entirely on the 26th.

Gucci Mane, real name Gucci Mane, was originally arrested in September 2013 for doing normal Gucci Mane shit like waving guns at cops and having pockets full of weed. No stranger to prison, this was Mane's 6th trip to the big house and his 22nd arrest overall. His past troubles include completing only 4% of his probat ...more

It was exciting to be on stage again and we looked forward to getting back in the studio. I also believe that our fans were happy to finally having something new to listen to..

I/we are very happy with the way that "Theories" turned out. Jim and I collaborated practically every day on the new album for over a year until we actually went into the studio.. ...more
