- Global pop icon Manu Chao is the latest artist to speak out against U.S. anti-immigration policies by performing a free concert in Phoenix, Arizona. The concert will take place on Sept. 21 in collaboration with the National Day Laborer Organizing Network.

- Soulja Boy clearly isn’t interested in being a protest artist. When U.S. military stores threatened to ban his forthcoming album from shelves because of a new song called “Let’s Be Real” that lashes out against the U.S. Army, the rapper immediately apologized, writing online, “When I expressed my frustration with the U.S. Army, not only did my words come out wrong, I was wrong to even speak them.”

- The vinyl collection of the late DJ Screw has been acquired by the University of Houston. More than 1,000 vinyl platters are heading to the library.

- And if you have 14 minutes and 21 seconds to kill today, check out this guy on YouTube performing the top 40 songs on last week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart on his piano.

Clicky shuffle, your random song for Friday morning.

- Cassie, “Me & U (Instrumental)”
