      Adult Swim Festival is back!

      Adult Swim Festival is back!

      Adult Swim Festival is back! This time, the two-day festival took over Banc of California Stadium, deemed Los Angeles’ newest entertainment venue. Following last year’s success at The Row DTLA, 2019 proved to be an even bigger expansion combining live music, comedians, dank food,and endless on-site activations.

      On Friday, November 15th, one of the most highly-anticipated acts on the bill was Captain Murphy, Flying Lotus’ alias. Beyond an explosive set bringing out guest rapper Azizi Gibson and Thundercat on the bass, it was the moment he tricked fans into thinking MF Doom was in the building — disguised as Hannibal Buress. While we laugh about it now, it was definitely a huge tease to all hip-hop heads in the arena.


      Another standout performance was Leikeli47, an amazing female MC who covers her face with ski masks… at all times. The “Money” rapper had the crowd jumping as she incorporated LA classics, even paying tribute to Nipsey Hussle, Snoop Dogg, and Tupac. 


      Inside the stadium was a small stage strictly for comedy lovers, where individuals were able to do live stand up. Attendees were free to dress up as they pleased, with Rick & Morty being the most popular costumes. As far as the fun, there was a gigantic slide shaped like Morty’s head, a cat jousting area, a Hot Dog bull riding machine, a Meatwad Dome featuring an Adult Swim  360-degree screening experience, and more.

      Saturday, November 16th aka Day Two proved to be the funnest yet. The creators of Robot Chicken did a Q&A called Robot CHicken Intergalactic Power Summit while Freddie Gibbs & Madlib tore the stage down, performing the majority of their Bandana album. Meanwhile, Rapsody held it down performing cuts off her most recent album Evewith the King Ice Biggie chain on! We had gifted her moments before she graced the stage.

      Tierra Whack came through with her bright, vibrant, colorful self and even had a talking potato on stage.

      2 Chainz definitely took over the stadium performing all his hits including “No Lie,” “No Problem,” “It’s A Vibe,” “Good Drank,” and many more. Of course, his dog Trappy was in the house as well as he brought out his entire TRU label. Eric Andre was quite possibly the most highly-anticipated act at Adult Swim, doing a live rendition of the Eric Andre Show. The grand finale was Vince Staples, who proved why he’s one of Long Beach’s finest.

      "My Rolex was a couple houses!" - Yung Mal

      Hailing from the Zone 6 of Atlanta, Yung Mal is following in the footsteps of Gucci Mane, who he’s signed to. With the backing of 1017 Eskimo/Alamo Records, the “Fresh” rapper prides himself in freestyling off the dome, writing absolutely nothing down. While he came up alongside fellow Zone 6 native Lil Quill, he recently decided to focus on his own craft and independence.


      On the heels of the release of his debut solo mixtape Iceburg — with features from Guwop, Gunna, Lil GotIt, and Pi'erre Bourne — Yung Mal arrives in Los Angeles dripped out per usual from head to toe. If you love Atlanta trap, you’ll love Yung Mal. King Ice caught up with the 23-year-old to discuss his drip and his jewelry preferences.


       Yung Mal Rolex

      What’s the most expensive jewelry you’ve ever purchased?

      My Rolex, it was a couple houses. I don’t want to make that… because I know it’s kids who want a Rollie, but that shouldn’t be their main focus. A watch. Because you can get a watch for $7,000, you can get a watch for $17,000, or you can get a watch for $170,000. 

       

      What’s something everyone should have in their jewelry collection?

      I’m not really a big jewelry person like that. I got a couple chains and pieces or whatever, but I’m not tryna go spend all my money on jewelry. You know how some rappers got a jewelry fetish? I ain’t really too much into it like that.

       

      What record label had the most iconic chain in your opinion?

      Mines, Alamo Records. 1017. Because that’s all I know, I don’t know nothing else. The 1-5 chain, that’s where I’m from: Candler, Atlanta.

      How often are you shopping?

      I don’t go to the mall like that. I only go to the mall if I see something that I want. I don’t really buy my clothes from the mall because all my clothes be getting made for me. The shoes, I didn’t go to the mall. I ordered them online. But sometimes I might go in there and grab a pair. The majority of the time, I’ll just grab or order it online.

       

      Talk about your drip though.

      Drip to the heel. I used to didn’t have drip. I just be putting it together. I just be putting that shit together. Definitely plan on putting out my own merch. Start my own clothing line.

      Trae Tha Truth "I had one of the first 3D pieces ever."

      Trae Tha Truth is a Houston legend. With a mantra to continue to excel, grow, and get better with each passing day, the H-town MC gives back in ways beyond the music. His activism efforts in saving the community from the floods directly coincides with the realness he spits into his rhymes.


      His projects offer a breath of fresh air into the hip-hop game, in this new age of social media antics and clout-chasing. Most recently, real name Frazier Thompson III unleashed a 12-track project titled Exhale, with no guest features. King Ice caught up with Trae Tha Truth at his album listening at Diamond on Fairfax.


      What is the most expensive jewelry you’ve ever purchased?

      I got so much jewelry, it don’t even make sense. I’m not really even into jewelry like that…


      You got chains on chains!

      Yeah but if I wore everything I had, it’d be a lot. Everything of mine costs. Everything’s real.

       
      Can you describe your jewelry style?

      Creative.


      Most iconic hip-hop chain?

      Probably some of the first ones. The Roots Aviators, I had one of the first 3D pieces ever. The Boondocks. The Trae face.

      What do you want your legacy to be?

      Whatever make my kids proud.
