Yes, you read it correctly, there will in fact be a Coachella at Sea. Two cruises are scheduled to sail across the ocean with a lineup of bands/DJs to accompany this voyage, one to The Bahamas (3 days), and the other to Jamaica (4 days). With an eclectic lineup that all will enjoy, this is due to be one of the most epic concerts known to man. Some people say “cruises aren’t for them”, or “cruises are so boring”, well if you can afford this party of all parties, I would reconsider these assumptions, because this could and may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Yes, I believe (unless this becomes an annual event), that seeing such an amazing concert out on the open ocean would be a once in a lifetime experience. They’ve got Girl Talk, Sleigh Bells, Hot Chip, and James Murphy, as well as El-P and Killer Mike, who just released R.A.P. Music (Killer Mike‘s new album, produced by El-P), one of the best albums this year… so you know you’re in for a treat once the S.S. Coachella sets sail… and my guess, but since you will be on a boat, you’re bound to see some of the artists in person, because they don’t have anywhere else to go before and after they play their set… just sayin’. See above poster for more artists that will be on the ship, and keep an eye out for more surprises to be added to the lineup in the near future.
S.S. Coachella Dates:
Watch as Killer Mike performs “Untitled”, in a black and white video of him in the studio. If you haven’t heard his new album R.A.P. Music yet, well I’m not quite sure what to say but, stop sleeping already!

If you haven’t downloaded, bought, or even heard any of Killer Mike‘s newly released album, R.A.P. Music, do yourself a favor and check some of the songs out below. Then download the entire album at iTunes, it will be the best 10 bucks you’ve spent all year. The entire album is produced by El-P, who’s been doing mad work and just released his own album as well, Cancer 4 Cure.
We don’t say this often, but this Killer Mike LP could very well be one of the best rap albums of the year. Everything about it is dope… the lyrics, beats, and all of the production. Just go get it already!
