Ok, so I get the feeling the Mickey Factz track wasn't enough to make up for my slacking on the posts. Well here you go...one more Jay-Z joint off "The Blueprint 3". That's it! No more leaks from this album. If you want to hear more then save up your pennies and cop the album on the 11th.

Sorry the posts have been a little scarce, but I spent the whole weekend at the beach and I'm still in vacation mood a lil bit. To make up for my tardiness, here's some new Mickey Factz. The track is so sick that if it doesn't make up for slacking on the posts I don't know what will. Enjoy!

Finally! The video is cool. Was actually expecting to get something a little more creative after the criticism he received for "Best I Ever Had". Still worth clicking the play button and watching. As a unexpected bonus there's a new verse from Trey Songz in the video.
In a pre-taped interview with Larry King, Chris Brown says he can't remember anything from the night he attacked Rihanna. Seriously Chris? Are you f'ing kidding me?
And the new Jay-Z x Timbo tracks just keep rolling in! Only this time its not a track set to appear on "The Blueprint 3" but Timbaland's "Shock Value 2". Not sure how I feel about this one though, its just aiight if you ask me. Anyway, download and comment with your thoughts.

Celebrity disk-jockey DJ AM was found dead in SoHo today, sources told NBC New York. He was 36 years old.WTF! This year has been one hell of a roller-coaster ride for people passing. I hope this wasn't a case of a drug overdose. Its sad that this dude got another chance and then still fell off shortly after. R.I.P. DJ AM.
The body of DJ AM, born Adam Goldstein, was found on the seventh floor of an apartment building at 215 Lafayette Street, law-enforcement sources said.
Goldstein, along with drummer Travis Barker, barely escaped death in a small plane crash in South Carolina on Sept. 19, 2008. That incident left him badly burned, but four others died in the accident.
The details of his demise are still unclear, but police sources said investigators are looking into the possibility of a drug overdose, as drug paraphernalia was found near his body.

This is the first I'm hearing of this dude. I'm still trying to figure out how to pronounce his name. haha. The song isn't bad. Wouldn't say I'd go hard and ride around with the windows down with this on but I could jam out to it at the gym on the iPod. Posted the download link for the .mp3 if you like the joint.
Download: Jaicko - "Oh Yeah" / Mediafire
Update: Looks like Uncle Snoop hopped on a remix of this joint. Good look.

I'll be honest, I originally gave this the time of day because Wiz Khalifa is on it but I have to say this joint is tough. The beat is killer and Soulja Boy's flow over the track is not that bad. Wiz kills it of course, but did you need me to tell you that. Check it out...
Download: Wiz Khalifa & Soulja Boy - "Inked & Tatted" / Mediafire
Donnis spits a dope freestyle over Mobb Deep's "Burn" and Red Cafe's "Hottest in the Hood" while on CDR.
Just got this in my inbox. Something new from Poe Picasso. I like the original New York flavor this dude delivers. It's something different from the "norm" which is much needed right now.

Dropping today at midnight is a new True x New Era "Sharpie" collection. No, the actual Sharpie didn't have anything to do with the collab but the original artwork was done with a Sharpie Chisel tip marker. This is actually the first New Era that TRUE has done which doesn't focus directly on the True logo.
The collection is an online exclusive and will come in 2 colors for men and 2 colors of women's tees with the original artwork. Check the TRUE e-Store for availability.
Mary J. enlists one of the hottest in the game right now for her comeback single "The One". Will this help her sell? I think Mary has a strong fan base so she'll sell records regardless. Enjoy the vid.
So I got a little bored (and a little inspired) and decided to create my own remix (shit, everyone else is doing it). After I heard the original version of Jay's "Dig A Hole" and Fabolous' "Return Of The Hustle", I thought why not blend the 2 together...smart right? Yeah, I thought so too. Well here it is folks my very own "Return Of The Hustle" remix. Enjoy, and let me know if it gets a thumbs up or down.

“I went to every single record label, and they was like, ‘This guy is terrible. He’s nothing,’ ” Jay told MTV News prior to the release of The Blueprint in 2001. “I had to put [Reasonable Doubt] out myself, because nobody would sign me.”
Boy oh boy, I bet those labels are drowning themselves in the toilet bowl right now.
Thurzday, from the group U-N-I, gets it in over the original sample Lil Wayne used on "Dr Carter". Word is a solo Y-O joint is dropping soon so check back for that.

Best of Both Offices and Three/21 present “Baby Girl: The Best Of Aaliyah”, a 2 disc tribute compilation dedicated to the late, great Aaliyah. Growing up in the 90’s, Aaliyah was the pinnacle of success as an R&B artist who crossed over into Pop Icon status. This collection is a must for those who experienced Aaliyah’s promising career firsthand. It features almost all of her hit singles as well as rare B-Sides and Remixes including a joint she did with Beck. The homie Jesse Boykins III also contributed a heartfelt song to the mixtape.

Damn, this joint is crazy! Omarion and Pharrell make some dope music. Im on a roll today baby!
Download: Omarion feat. Pharrell - "Devastation" / Mediafire
So taking a step back from the new releases, here's a flashback. Any Fabolous fans remember this beat (From Nothing To Something "Return Of The Hustle"), and Jay-Z fans remember this track off the '06 Kingdom Come record. The track "Dig A Hole" on Kingdom Come was produced by Swizz Beatz, but the original was produced by Just Blaze. Not sure why sh*t changed but for whatever reason this version didn't make the album. Remember who put you on first!
Download: Jay-Z - "Dig A Hole" (Original Version) / Mediafire
I jumped things off on this site with a cover or Weeyz's "Lollipop" by Framing Hanley. Whelp, to set us apart from the rest again, here's a dope cover of Rihanna's "Umbrella" by All Time Low. I know your loving us by now...

Holy sh*t, this joint wasn't even supposed to drop until Friday! Dayum! This IS serious...SxO all day baby. Thank me now not later...
Download: Drake feat. Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem - "Forever" / Mediafire
I think a 500 foot tall Jay-Z solidifies that HE is that dude.
According to a LiveLeak post: This video shows that Michael was still alive after his dead body was transported to the Los Angeles Dept. of Coroner I checked the license plate number and it looks like the King of Pop is jumping out of the same van, his dead body has been in. I got the original video tape from a trustworthy source. I know him for years. And I am sure it´s real and Michael is alive.
Ummm ok, and I currently have a leprechaun renting out my basement.
Quick lesson; Rich Paul = part of Lebron James' Management Team and heavy contributor on the new "More Than A Game" movie.
"Forever" = the track rumored to drop Friday that features Drake, Lil Wayne, Eminem, and Kanye West.
Try to keep up...

This track is bad ass. I have no clue who Amanda Blank is, but as soon as you add 1 or both of The Cool Kids to a song it immediately adds the artist to my "someone to watch" list. This track is off Amanda's new album "I Love You" which is in stores now.

I think I can honestly say Omarion joining Cash Money was a smart choice. I think he fits in well on that label, and the addition of Lil Wayne to his music will only make things better. I mean come on, how long did he expect to last featuring Bow Wow on his tracks? Oh wait! Bow Wow is on Cash Money also! *yawn.
Download: Omarion feat. Lil Wayne - "I Get It In" / Mediafire

Damn, Gucci is everywhere now! Check what CurT@!n$ had to say about the record:
This joint is about 4 or so years old. Originally recorded for my 2nd demo I was shopping back in ‘05. Gucci was working in the room next to me, I stepped to him bout jumping on a record. I played him bout 3 songs and soon as this joint came on he jumped. I already had three verses but I took out one and added him on there. From that same session we ended up doing bout 4 more joints, but this still is my favorite of them all.
Sounds like these 2 built a good rapport. Which shows in the joints I've heard from the two together so far.
Download: CurT@!n$ feat. Gucci Mane - "I'm Aiit" Remix / Mediafire

You can never go wrong with a Fabolous x Jay-Z video. "Loso's Way" in stores now!
If this dudes live music is anything like his recorded music than I will be at this event early.
Surprisingly, the Ether Boy has no autotune on his vocals. I guess Jay did a Biggie "your life is played like Kwame and those f*ckin polka dots" on the autotune game. haha. Anywho, Ron can hold his own without the vocoder so no harm no foul.
