Our favorite half-Jewish Canadian rapper is partnering with T-Mobile for a Super Bowl 50 advertisement based on the music video for his cellphone-related single, "Hotline Bling" (get it?). 

The company released a clip of the commercial on Twitter showing the rapper, who is donning the same grey knit sweater that he wore in the original video, doing his Drizzy-Drake dance in the cube room when two T-Mobile representatives interrupt him mid-song with some "changes." They ask him to amend some of the lyrics to promote the company, to which the rapper replies with a grin, "These changes don't ruin the song at all." 

Rapper Lil Wayne is also purported to be appearing in a Super Bowl 50 commercial for Apartments.com. (Random, right?)

Super Bowl 50 takes place on Feb. 7, so make sure if you're not watching the game, that you at least watch the commercials.

  • 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.'"
