Jay-Z and Apple Inc. are teaming up to launch a digital record label. This is according to a rumor from The Boy Genius Report who says they've "just about confirmed" it from "a high-up person attached to Jay."

Tech blog Crunchgear says the rumor is bullshit. But if it's true, Steve Jobs and friends may make the announcement at the upcoming MacWorld Expo here in San Francisco.

Jay-Z recently stepped down from his post as president of Def Jam, so I guess he's searching for more middle-aged white guys to shake hands with. Let's just hope the first single on Apple's new label will be Jay-Z and Steve Jobs performing "Ebony and Ivory." -- Tyler Callister

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
