The L.A. Leakers have spoken on Power 106‘s decision to ban Kodak Black from the station.

The move came in response to Kodak’s comments about Nipsey Hussle‘s fiancee Lauren London following the rapper’s death. The comments were widely condemned, including by rappers like The Game and T.I.

Speaking with the Reflections of a DJ podcast, Leakers members Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk discussed how the ban came about and how long it will last. They also shared some memories of Nipsey, among other topics.

Avicii‘s highly-anticipated first posthumous single has arrived. The track, which is titled “S.O.S.,” features “Wake Me Up” singer Aloe Blacc. It will appear on the Swedish artist’s upcoming posthumous album, TIM, which drops June 6.

“When Tim Bergling passed away on April 20, 2018, he was close to completing a new album,” the press release says. “The songwriters that Tim was collaborating with on this album have continued the process to get as close to his vision as possible.”

“Since Tim’s passing, the family decided not to keep the music locked away – instead they wanted to share it with his fans all around the world.”

Avicii’s net income from the album will go to the nonprofit Tim Bergling Foundation, which among other things, helps prevent mental illness and suicide.
