EMINEM & ROYCE DA 5'9 - "FAST LANE"


First leak from one of the projects the world has been waiting for (I say world but if you havent been waiting for it, its cool. You're a loser and my "world" is better than yours). Now all we need is Detox and TM103 to complete the circle. Bad Meets Evil coming soon!

E MAJOR - "E MAJOR IS...BETTER THAN YOURS" MIXTAPE


Guess who's bizzack!! For all of those that guessed Kool Moe Dee, you're horribly wrong and go sit outside on the curb. Anyone who said E Major, give yourself a gold star. E Durrrty (as I like to call him) teamed up with BetterThanYours.net for a new project that features the likes of King Mez, Sean Armstrong, Ab Rock and more!

LUPE FIASCO FEAT. SKYLAR GREY - "WORDS I NEVER SAID" (VIDEO)


New visuals for one of my favorite tracks off Lupe's new album "Lasers".

KOBE BRYANT IS...VICIOUS!


Yeah, that one word about sums it up after watching this clip of game 5 against the Hornets.


My reaction as well.

TYLER THE CREATOR IS THURNIS HALEY


Hahaha, this dude Tyler is character. Here's a new promo video for his upcoming album "Goblin." This sh*t made me fall out of my chair because Im sure most of us know an middle age black dude that talks and laughs the same exact way! haha. Check it out.

CURREN$Y - "COVERT COUP" EP


Im a couple of days late with this one but the fact that its probably my favorite Curren$y project to day and I just cooked a mean ass steak on the grill, Im giving myself a late pass. Produced entirely by The Alchemist, this EP is insane! I feel like this could be Curren$y's "So Far Gone." Please do yourself a favor folks and download this sh*t ASAP.

STALLEY FEAT. RICK ROSS - "LINCOLN WAY NIGHTS" REMIX


Ive been stressing out all damn week dealing with some personal shit so this track came as a nice little treat. A smooth beat + laid back rhymes = perfect 4/20 music. Make sure you download Stalley's latest project "Lincoln Way Nights (Intelligent Trunk Music)" if you haven't already.

CAROLINA WEST - "FUCKING IMPOSSIBLE" MIXTAPE


Carolina West tweeted this project to me a few weeks ago and I just got around to noticing it. I only listened to a few tracks off the project and from what Ive heard this joint goes. For those of you not up on Carolina West, I think this is a good introduction.

RICK ROSS FEAT. DRAKE - "MADE MEN" (VIDEO)


New visuals from Rozay and Drizzy. Ross is killing sh*t right now. Plain and simple. This track is perfect for the upcoming Summer months to have on blast with the windows down and cop a mean mug at the old white ladies next to you when you pull up to a red light. Download link below for those that need the .mp3 in their life.

PHIL ADE - "YOUR HANDS"


Since the emergence of Wale I have to say that DC is killing sh*t right now! This next track from the Chocolate City's own Phil Ade is proof that theres a nice amount of talent ready to emerge a quite town in hip hop. "Your Hands" is produced by Mark Henry and is featured on Phil's next project A Different World.

WHO? ME?!?


Why wouldnt I post this! haha. Spotted @ YDHS.

BADIO - "BEST BET"


Wasn't too excited with the artwork he sent so I decided to design my own

Badio was heavy on the site a while ago and then....*crickets*. Yeah, dude stopped sending me music and I stopped seeing Badio posts on other sites. My original thoughts were "I hope dude is ok" and if so and he dropped out of the game, "another waste of talent." Then I got this in my inbox and quickly sat up in my chair to reach for my headphones to hear the latest offering from an artists I havent heard from in a long long time. Whereas this isnt the Badio Im used to I still think the track is cool. Not my favorite Badio track to date but still dope. Check it and share your thoughts in the c-section.

Cole, Vado, Just Blaze, Pusha T, ChYi Da Prynce and Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump for his latest mixtape project.

TYGA - "BLACK THOUGHTS 2" MIXTAPE


I guess Im in a Mixtape Mindset today! Here's a full 14 track project from Young Money's own Tyga. Featuring appearances from Gudda Gudda, The Game, Mario, Lloyd and Pharrell with production from Lex Luger and The Neptunes. You know its funny how Chris Brown got all the love and publicity and shine for the track "Deuces" when it was off his and Tyga's joint mixtape. SMH. I guess you win some and you lose some. You'll get your turn Tyga, don't worry. Fame is on the way. I hope.

BOSSMAN - "ILLUMINATI"


So Im about 99.9% sure this track dropped a few months ago and my lateness in posting it means either 1. Im a huge supporter of Bossman and Baltimore hip hop or 2. Im just late as f*ck. I would say both qualify as true. But hey, we cant live in the past so enjoy what jewels I drop in the present.

WHITE IPHONE 4 AVAILABLE AT THE END OF APRIL


Word on the street (or word on word on USA Today to be exact) is that the Apple iPhone 4 will hit AT&T and Verizon shelves at the end of this money, April 2011. Honestly Ill believe it when I see it. Apple is known for building hype and then making us wait eons before the hype manifests into reality.

BAPE X PORTER BAG COLLECTION


I'm not a huge fan of "man bags" but theres some pretty hot pieces mixed in this collection. 2 of my favorites are the book bag and the wallet. I may not have any money to actually put in wallet after spending the outrageous price I'm sure it costs, but its cool nonetheless. The new collection hits BAPE locations on April 30th.

(Spotted @ Highsnobiety)












PRINCE - "LAYDOWN" (LIVE ON LOPEZ TONIGHT)


Prince is the man, simply put. He may not 100% resemble one but if you take all that talent and put it into a masculine form I'm sure the result would be some sort of musically inclined Jedi. Prince stopped by Lopez Tonight to perform his newest single "Laydown" off the upcoming album 20Ten. He's backed up by The New Power Generation and, well, lays it down. Check it out.

KID CUDI - "THE JOURNEY OF MR. RAGER" (FULL DOCUMENTARY)


This next post allows me to be honest about 2 things: 1. I have yet to get a copy of Cudder's latest offering, Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager. And, 2. I havent havent had a chance to watch this video. Its Cudi so I'm sure both of these personal flaws I exhibit will not outweigh the fact this is pretty dope. Apparently this is the full version of the documentary that was released with the deluxe edition of the album.

THE COOL KIDS - "BUNDLE UP" (VIDEO)


My day is going pretty slow so I figured I would take this time to post up some new (well sorta new) material. This is the latest visual offering from the dynamic duo, The Cool Kids, off the upcoming (we hope) album When Fish Ride Bicycles. Pretty dope stuff right here. Which, in addition to the lack of an album, begs the question of when the hell we'll hear these dudes get some mainstream radio spins? Ahh well, Ill take what I can get.

SADE FEAT. JAY-Z - "THE MOON & THE SKY" REMIX


It's been a few days (or weeks) since I put up anything new but when I saw this I knew it was toooo good not to share. I mean c'mon, Sade and Jay-z?!? Yeah, this is a collab made in heaven. They you add to that some smooth production from 40 (see Jaime Foxx "Fall For Your Type" credits if you dont know who he is)! Classic sh*t right here folks. Now Im off to watch a new episode of Bob's Burgers and then Family Guy.
