MOSHADEE - "NASA"


The NASA space program may be over but the dude MoShadee is just getting started. The marriage of producer $port and Mo' create something really really dope on this track. Im a long time fan of MoShadee's work and I have to say this is one of the dopest tracks I've heard from the young MC. I cant wait to hear where this track ends up and what MoShadee and $port have in store for us in the future.

JOE FEAT. PHARRELL - "GONE AWAY" (PRODUCED BY THE NEPTUNES)


Why is it that anytime I hear some old school sounding Neptunes beats Im instantly in a Summer time mood. Case in point, this latest track from Joe produced by The Neptunes (duh). This joint is ready made for any cookout you may host or attend. Not sure where the hell Joe has been but I welcome him back. Look out for his new project The Good, The Bad, The Sexy due for a Sept. 13th release.

DRAKE - "HEADLINES" (PRODUCED BY BOI-1DA)


Here it is folks. First official single from Drizzy Drake off the Take Care album. Shout out to OVO for letting this one loose. With that said, better scoop this one up now before you know who makes us take it down.

BIG SEAN X CURREN$Y X WIZ KHALIFA - "O.T.T.R." (OFF TO THE RACES) X "FLOWERS" X "WEED BROWNIES" X "DOT DOT DOT" X "PROCEED"


Damn, that post title is a mouth full! I've been gone for a while but now Im bizzack! Thats right boys and girls, you cant get rid of me. Ive thought about hanging up this blog shit a few times but I love being able to share what I want to share when I want to share it. Speaking of which, heres a bunch of Big Sean x Curren$y x Wiz Khalifa music I think is worth sharing. Not sure if these guys are working on a project together but if so I would be willing to bet it would be a hit.

Pusha T + Tyler, the Creator + Pharrell on the beat x girl on girl kissing scenes = must see visuals. Just click play folks.

"THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN" MOVIE TRAILER (VIDEO)


The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen and Denis Leary, with Marc Webb directing. It will be released in theaters next summer on July 3rd, 2012, in 3D and IMAX.

I was just reading about this movie in one of those entertainment magazines on my lunch break today. As much as Im a fan of comic movie re-boots (i.e., Batman and X-Men First Class) I hope this one is just as good.

PHIL ADE - "A DIFFERENT WORLD" MIXTAPE


As promised, heres the latest mixtape from DC's own Phil Ade. Featuring appearances from 9th Wonder, Bink!, Oddisee, Mac Miller, Killa Kyleon, GLC and more.

KELLY ROWLAND FEAT. BIG SEAN - "LAY IT ON ME"


I was beginning to question how Kelly was going to follow up her smash hit "Motivation." Well, heres the answer. I swear, this better hit radio stations before the summer is over or Kelly should fire her marketing staff.

JAY-Z & KANYE WEST IN THE STUDIO (PICS)


It must be cool as shit to be able to have this much fun with your co-worker. It also must be cool as shit to be one of those people in the background who you've never seen before that get to hang in the studio with the likes of Jay, Yeezy and B. Pics courtesy of Life + Times. Watch the Throne coming soon to shelves near you. If you cant wait for it to hit shelves, feel free to pre-order your copy.





































JHENE AIKO - "STRANGER" (VIDEO)


Call me crazy, but I think this track is ready and willing for a Drake verse. Dont get me wrong, the joint is hot as is but the beat and the melody warrants a visit from Drizzy at least on the hook. With that said, make sure you snatch up Jhené's album, .sailing soul(s), if you haven't done so already which features appearances from Miguel and Drake (yeah, even though he doesn't appear on this track he is on the album).

SUPERB SUMMER 2011 LOOKBOOK

SBTRKT & DRAKE PERFORM "WILDFIRE" REMIX (VIDEO)


We didn't get to see Drizzy in the official video for this joint, but heres some visuals with Drake and the SBTRKT crew performing "Wildfire" live @ Wildbar in Toronto. I cant say it enough about how the beat on this joint is bananas! For those that are late to the party, click HERE for a download link to the full track.

TYGA FEAT. CHRIS BROWN - "SNAPBACKS BACK" (VIDEO)


I know I said Weezy's"Tupac's Back" was the last freestyle I was going to post over that beat but Tyga delivers something a little with his rendition. Featuring the likes of the yellow haired wonder Chris Brown.

LIL WAYNE - "TUNECHI'S BACK"


I think this is a good place to leave off for the night. Weezy gets it in over Rozay's "Tupac's Back" and leaves it for every other rapper to second think about doing another remix on this joint. Sorry For The Wait mixtape coming soon.

DAVID CORREY X MOOK - "HOTTEST IN MY CITY" (VIDEO)


I first met DC David Correy a few years back when I was managing R&B artist Johnel. I have to say dude has come a long long way and this track right here proves it. David comes correct with showing the world that the DMV has a lot more talent to offer the world. Im new to the dude Mook but homeboi holds his own on this track. Not sure if these two are working on a project together but if so I can hear a DMV version of Chris Breezy and Tyga's "Fan of a Fan" mixtape.

SKYLAR GREY - "DANCE WITHOUT YOU" (VIDEO)


Ever since I heard Skylar on Lupe's last album she's been one of those artist that have been stuck in my head. Now it appears she's starting to shine on her own as an artist and here we have the fist video from her upcoming debut album INVINSIBLE. Im loving the song and the visuals are...um, well "interesting." Pretty creepy but interesting. See for yourself.

SOUND FX - "FOREVER AND A DAY" EP


The Cali duo Sound Fx continues to be a favorite here on SXO ever since I let their music grace my ear holes. Ew, that didn't sound right. Anyway, while busy working on their album they decided to release a 6 track sampler of whats to come. If you're still not up on Sound Fx, let this be the grand introduction. I'll even spot you a sample track to give you and idea on what to expect. Feel free to hit play on "Ain't It Beautiful," track 2, and then proceed to download the entire EP.

KID CUDI - "ANGELS & DEMONS"


I had a pretty long work week so I decided not to go out this Friday. Which leaves me as much time as I want tonight to get some good stuff up on the site. I've been waiting for a while on some new Cudder to come into my reaches...and guess Im just going to have a little longer because this track isn't new. Apparently "Angels & Demons" is an unreleased joint that was supposed to feature the Clipse and land a spot on Cudi's "Man On The Moon: End of Day" album. Obvhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifiously that didn't occur. With that said, here's 2 mins of what could have been a dope ass collaboration sans the Clipse.

FRANK OCEAN - "ANYWHERE"


Those OFWGKTA boys have taken the game by the throat are refuse to let go. Here's an unreleased joint from Frank Ocean who, in case you didn't know, will be featured on the upcoming Jay x Ye "Watch The Throne" album. Its still funny how some "unnamed sites" still wont post OddFuture music. Oh well. Now Im off to go watch this new Danny Phantom movie with the little one. Oh the joys of parenthood.

PUSHA T FEAT. TYLER, THE CREATOR - "TROUBLE ON MY MIND" (PRODUCED BY THE NEPTUNES)


Pusha T and Tyler, the Creator? Aww man, this is all kinds of sick! Production courtesy of The Neptunes. Stream only for now and look out for visuals on the way. "Fear of God 2: Let Us Pray" coming soon.

LITTLE JINDER FEAT. CED HUGHES - "YOUTH BLOOD" (12TH PLANET AND FLINCH REMIX)


Its been way too long since I head anything new from Ced Hughes. That's why when I saw this chilling in my inbox I quickly proceeded to take a listen. Ced hops on Little Jinder's "Youth Blood" and Ill be dammed if he doesn't make the joint sound like he was meant to be on the original. This is the first leak of Ced's upcoming mixtape which is scheduled to drop July 20th.

AZEEM FEAT. CARLOS ST. JOHN - "HURRICANES & TORNADOES"


Hell, while I'm on the topic of Carlos St. John x Azeem collaborations here's the latest from Azeem with (yep you guess it) Carlos St. John on the feature. In the past Ive only heard Azeem as a feature, but to actually hear him as the main artist on the track I have a whole new view of the dude. His raspy voice is very unique. Like a Kevin Rudolph x Bruno Mars x Avery Storm kind of thing (my bad if any of these comparisons offend the artist. That's the best way I can describe his sound). I'm especially loving this track. I could hear a remix with Lupe on the feature (with Carlos of course). Check it out and leave your thoughts in the C-section.

CARLOS ST. JOHN FEAT. AZEEM - "HERE WE ARE"


Now that Im finished relaxing on my day off, its time to get to work. First up is a new track from Carlos St. John with the help of Azeem on the hook.

NEAKO FEAT. FRESH MOSS - "ROLEX TIME" (VIDEO X MP3)


Last post of the night folks. Its getting late and Im getting tired. This joint comes by way of Neako over B.I.G.'s "The What" directed by Max Hliva. Make sure you snatch up the .mp3 below after you indulge in the visuals above.

KID INK FEAT. MANN - "LIVE IT UP "


After I posted Kid Ink's album, "Daydreamer", I promised that it wouldn't be the last you see/ hear him on SXO. Well, you know I'm not onehttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif to default on a promise. This track is one of the highlights off the album and will be on blast in the CTS as I head out to party this weekend. Yeah, its that dope.

PHRESH HEIR FEAT. CLEAR SOUL FORCES & EM-J - "IN THE HOUSE"


Phresh Heir is back (finally) with some new tunes. Clear Soul Forces and Em-J (formerly part of PH) lend a hand on the track. This is the first leak of PH's upcoming project "Fly Another Day."



Download: Phresh Heir feat. Clear Soul Forces & Em-J - "In The House" / Mediafire

BEYONCE - "BEST THING I NEVER HAD" (VIDEO)


I cant front, this video starts out with B in some lingerie. That alone gets a guaranteed post. "4" in stores now.

GAME FEAT. PHARRELL & JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE - "AIN'T NO DOUBT ABOUT IT" (VIDEO)


Game, Skateboard P and JT = a pretty dope match up. Im feeling the old school Neptunes beat and its good to hear JT on his music 'ish. Aside from the fact this track is over a year old I so go ahead and press play for the visuals.

KYDD FEAT. BOOBONIC - "JUST A LIL BIT"


Well lookie here. Its been like a hundred years since Kydd gave us something new to enjoy. This track has just the right amount of bounce and energy to hype up any cookout, house party, skate rink, kids birthday party, block party, anniversary, wedding, funeral...ok maybe not a funeral but you get what I'm saying. Look out for Kydd's Sounds In My Head Pt. 2 album dropping late July featuring appearances from GLC, Yelawolf, Pac Div, Skyzoo and more.
