Lots of happenings with a perennial PopMatters favorite Curumin. The Brazilian rapper returns Northern climes for a raft of concert appearances (after the jump), including a gig at the Montreal Jazz Festival on July 11. He was also recently featured on National Geographic’s Geo Sessions and we have the videos here.

Wale has joined with Zune to produce a series of 10 video podcasts and the first one has just gone live. It follows the rapper on tour in Chicago. Wale’s record from last year, The Mixtape About Nothing, was critically acclaimed by us and many others.
