After all the hype and all the leaks, Kanye's protege finally drops his much anticipated 3rd project. I ran thru all 17 tracks before posting and this joint is on point. Ill be honest, I enjoy the free music like the next guy but my only concern with Sean is does he have enough buzz to actually sell albums? Yes, he's under Kanye's wing and yes he has a dope flow and fan base but is that enough to get him some mainstream airplay? Whatever the case, no sense in worrying about the future just yet. Lets enjoy the free sh*t while it lasts.

Aight, I know I said I was just about to hop on the grille and whip up some yummy burgers but this joint caught my eye. Being a HUGE Linkin Park fan I couldn't pass up posting this joint before I pause posting for a moment. My only critique; can we get Shinoda back on the rapping over some of these tracks! I mean what up LP?

It's finally here. I've been working on this project since Sept. of LAST YEAR. This is an amalgam of many things. Us as a people, black people, the Diaspora, how we relate to each other in relationships & socially. All in all we've been built and programmed to have shoddy social/love relationships as a result of slavery and years of conditioning to break down our culture and heritage. They've failed. We're WOKE with knowledge of self. We're Young, Gifted and Black. Also just a personal dissertation & exploration on my relationships w/ lovers, friends & family. Also a celebration of women & the life cycle of sorts. We as men come out of a woman (our Mother) enter a woman again (our wives/lovers) and return to mother EARTH in death. Plus it's just a spaced-out, low-end mixtape composed of dope jams. The mothership is here to expand how you think and take you somewhere else via audio rhythms. All the artwork is by me, Fresh Daily. It was mixed by producer, engineer & good friend, Benamin @ The Zoo Studios. Thanx for listening. Be ready now that it's landed.Fresh was kind enough to drop this off in my inbox a few days ago. I just had a chance to listen to the entire project over the weekend and this joint goes hard! If you're not up on Fresh Daily, here's a dope introductory project. Now excuse me for a moment while I go throw some burgers on the grill. Man, I'm gonna miss the summer!

I'm not even going to pretend I know the background on this track. Ye sounds like he's spitting a verse I've never heard before so I cant say its recycled. Plus Ill admit, I'm new to Stromae. *Shrugs. Anywho, its a great party track none-the-less. I'll admit, I cant relate to all the European talk since I don't even have a passport but one day SUPERXOFFICIAL will explode thru the roof and you'll see me partying with celebrities and model chicks all of the world!!! This is where I wake up. Download link below.

To follow up our profile with Ibn Jasper, we caught up with Lupe Fiasco on set of the recent RSVP Gallery lookbook video shoot for Trilly & Truly’s Basic Info. For the Spring/Summer run of merchandise, Lupe decided to stick with a simplistic theme that focused more around iconic imagery than complex design. A true innovator in both fashion and music, Lupe goes in depth on his clothing line, how he separates the two and what he hopes people will take from it.
Im all about collaborations, and you know what I really love to see?!? A Trilly & Truly x Ambush jewelry piece. How sick would that be!
Fresh new tunes from The Cool Kids recently featured in a DC Shoes commercial. I wonder how much money these 2 have made in the last few years without dropping one full length album?

Skullcandy amplifies their trademark style and flavor with the genesis of an all new softgoods and apparel category. Tapping the same quality construction, attention to detail, and innovative design that has become the Skullcandy standard, the new venture allows for personal expression well beyond the earlobe.
The Fall Collection includes hoodies, wallets, belts, fitted hats, socks and a completely refreshed lineup of backpacks. The new goods are only available through elite Skullcandy dB retailers and online at Skullcandy.com
I love it when established brands start to branch out and test the waters with different things. In addition to their headphones, the Skullcandy gear is also reasonably priced. Dopeness.
No folk, I haven't abandoned the blog. Just took a few days off trying to get ready for all this back to school rigmarole with the kiddies. That's behind us, its Saturday morning and I have a TON of new sh*t to catch up on from the last few days. Before I do, I have to run some errands real quick so I kick things off today with something current. New music from Yeezy and Jigga man off their upcoming EP, "Watch The Throne."

Well lookie here! I posted this joint up last night because I just started hearing it on the radio and now we have visuals.

Today marks the official day of Good living, Good vibes & Good music.

The EP features six songs all produced by DJ Finyl with vocals from Marion Write featuring the likes of Nique, Verbal E of the Chapter Crew, Fame and The Remede. The Goodness contains live instrumentation mixed with soul samples and lyrical content we all can relate to. We thank everybody for taking the time to check out the project! See you again with part 2 next year!I hope all of you frequent free music shoppers have been following my dude Marion Write and are performing that "right click/ download" action as we speak. I look forward to hearing more from The Perfect Formula and I wish they didn't set a "next year" expectation for new tunes. I guess this EP will have to be enough to hold me over.

So it appears that Urrsher realized he had something going with the dance feel of his "O.M.G." track. This joint dropped a few weeks ago but I just started hearing it on the radio this weekend and its the type of track that you find yourself singing while pouring your morning coffee. If only learning how to dance like Ursh were as easy as learning the lyrics to the song.

Ok, so I know what you're thinking. Colin Munroe has be absent from the scene for a few months now and then he emerges with a Prince cover? Yep, when I got the e-mail I was thinking the same thing. Then I gave the track a listen and quickly remembered that Colin is a beast! It brought back memories of his "Flashing Lights" remake and how this dude knows how to add his own touch and personalize a remix. Colin is no Price by any means. And that's a good thing because he's just Colin. Colin is talented, dope and (I believe) very creative. I cant wait until he comes off his hiatus and blesses us with more original tunes. Until then, I'm making some room in the iPod for this track.

These past 3 months have been SUPER exciting for me.. behind all of the other projects i’ve been hard at work completing (full length albums with SKYZOO (Duckdown), REDMAN, & more), I produced an album with a new group I formed.. we are called SMOKEY ROBOTIC… it’s POP.. it’s ELECTRO.. it’s HIP HOP..it’s “4 on the flooor”, there’s some singing.. some rapping.. a few ballads..but above everything else, it’s FUN music.. we were all completely free while making this album, and i’m so proud of it… I want to share it with you.. it’s 12 complete tracks.. bump it in the car, on the ipod during your commute, or anywhere that you want to just listen to music to make you happy…Now this is what I love about blogging and the new age of music! This is creativity at its finest folks. Believe it or not 458 "Light Up" freestyles can get a bit mundane. I was a little sketchy about downloading this at first but then I saw a link to stream the project and found my self nodding to every track I pressed play. The project is different and I am a huge fan of different (seriously, I have all their t-shirts, coffee mugs, 2010 calendar and I even named my goldfish "Different"). I have to make a quick beer run so I'll let this simmer at the top for a few hours.

Fresh of his decline to join Drake on tour, Wiz hops on a 3OH!3 remix. Yeah, I think this is gonna be on repeat tonight when I head out to the bar scene. As far as that Wiz x Drake issue, I have to say that would have been one hell of a tour.

No that I let that Yeezy "Power" Remix simmer at the top for a bit, its time to get back on my bullsh*t. With that said, how about we kick things off this Saturday afternoon with the 3 and final installment of Drizzy's "What If I Kissed You." At first reported to be a reference track but damn, he might as well call it his own by now. Now let the viral remix's begin!
