This sounds rather interesting. The music platform Soundcloud is teaming up with Instagram to create something unique for users. The service will allow Soundcloud users select an photo from their Instagram to serve as the cover image for a song and even a playlist that they will create and share using the service. Kudos to Josh for informing us about this latest move.
It’s easy. Connect your Instagram feed to your SoundCloud account. Then you’ll be free to choose your best photos to add to your tracks, playlists, groups, or profile. You can do it straight away when you post on SoundCloud, or add Instagram images later on the sound or track’s page. Looking for inspiration? Kaskade and Krewella have already hooked it up.

We were wondering what 9th Wonder was referring to on his recent tweets. Earlier today, 9th Wonder took to twitter and announced the signing of a new artist and his name is Add-2. We love Add-2 his music and movement and we think this is a great look for the Chicago emcee. He’s always featured on the Millionaires club and we’re glad for him.
Also Add-2 has a forthcoming EP with The Soul Council’s own Khrysis which will be sponsored by LRG. The EP will be called Between Heaven And Hell and will be released soon. For now, check out the first leak from the project entitled “Don’t Go”.
