Controversy Over Future Brown Criticism More Interesting Than Future Brown’s Album

By Chris DeVille / February 27, 2015
Future Brown's self-titled debut LP was one of our most anticipated releases of 2015, and the album's utopian mix of American street rap and high-minded European electronica didn't quite live up to its promise.

By Chris DeVille / February 27, 2015
When we spoke with Noel Gallagher recently, the ex-Oasis guitarist had harsh words for Beyoncé and Kanye West. Gallagher loves to run his mouth -- and I love to hear him running it -- so of course he had some more vitriol to spew when Rolling Stone caught up with him, and of… More »
