I haven’t posted a Theophilus London track in a minute. I think it’s mostly my grudge from him bailing on a Boston show that I had tix for. I get it. These things happen. I’m willing to let bygones be bygones. Here’s the Club Cheval remix of Rihanna’s Jump featuring Theo. Ps - Sorry i’m not sorry, Theo get your shit together and make new music.

Theophilus London dropped the highly anticipated Rose Island: Vol. 1 today. Aside from the bangers we’ve already heard (“Big Spender”, “She Said OK”, etc.), there is a lot to like on this mixtape. TL fans should have no problem bumping this all summer. Download here .
Earlier this week, Theophilus London teamed with Big Boi for the ultra-explicit "She Said OK" . Now, he's back with "Golden", which was produced by fellow Brooklynite Twin Shadow . The resulting effort is a fairly balanced blend of both their styles, with London's unpolished-yet-evocative vocals about the whims of an unpredictable girl riding perfectly on top of Twin Shadow's slightly gloomy, slightly sunny New Wave production. Stream it below. London's new EP, Lovers Holiday II: Rose Island , is due out next week.
After announcing the follow-up to 2010's spectacular Sir Lucius Left Foot ... The Son of Chico Dusty , Big Boi , alongside Theophilus London , released the first track from Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors , "She Said OK." It starts off a bit weird, but you kinda get into it.
What are some of the benefits of being famous? Well, if you're Big Boi or Theophilus London, apparently you can ask the lay-deez to show some skin and they'll happily oblige. Hell, BB and Theo don't even have to say please, let alone grovel. That's the pull that musicians have, my friends. Well, that's what you're bound to think after listening to 'She Said Okay' anyway, where there's female private parts being whipped out for our rapping friends and their crooning homeboy Tre Luce. Not sure where 'She Said Okay' [...]
I've always admired OutKast's ability to get away with murder when it comes to their lyrics. On even their most degrading honest songs , their cool demeanor and throwback productions allow the lyrics to fly right under the radar. This new Big Boi track is no different. Along with BK rapper Theophilus London and Tre Luce, he gets straight to the point with his requests. This song is expected to appear on both Big Boi's new album and Theo's upcoming mixtape. Check out the bedroom banger below: [...]
Do these lines actually work? Cause if so then I have been doing it so wrong for all these years. I mean maybe at the strip club, but that only works when you have a fistful of dollar bills in hand and you're on your way to the champagne room, or so I've been told. Speaking of strippers, I'm pretty sure this new tune from Big Boi and Theophilus London will be the theme song for more than one of these fine ladies of the night and also the theme song coming to a bedroom [...]
Big Boi and Theophilus London have joined forces on a super explicit new track called "She Said OK", which you can stream below. In other news, Big Boi recently took to Twitter to reveal that his upcoming solo LP would be entitled Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors (and not Daddy Fat Saxxx: Soul Funk Crusader as previously assumed.) In addition, Big Boi said his album will be followed by the long-awaited solo debut from his OutKast co-conspirator Andre 3000 - though we'll believe it when we see [...]

A$AP Rocky is having a nice long weekend. After tearing up the stage at Coachella, and helping Theophilus London drop one of this year’s hottest tracks, the ASAP Mob leader released his new single, ”Goldie” which may be one of his best songs yet. So jiggy. A$AP Rocky - “Goldie”
After a buildup that seems like forever and having more leaks than a Polish submarine, Theophilus London and A$AP Rocky finally officially released their track "Big Spender", and on what is normally tax day nonetheless. Probably just a coincidence there, but this new track will most likely be bumping in cars and parties for the next year or so you can guarantee that. Sampling the song of the same name from the Broadway musical Sweet Charity , Theo and A$AP prove that you can turn just about the whitest [...]
