Brand new short from "MOTH" director Hilton Carter.
VICTOR is the story of a struggling comedian, trying to work his way through
an extreme case of writers block. As he fights with bad joke after bad joke, he
comes to realize that the real humor is in his everyday life. You may not like
him but you WILL love him.
Following up on 2011's TGTC (The Greater Than Club), Fly.Union recently released this 10 track EP. Stream and download like below.

Are you one of the millions who wake, live and go to sleep by Facebook? Not me, but to each their own. BUT if you are one of those who go thru withdraw when you're not using the social giant, then boy has designer Tolga Tuncer have something for you! The phone features a sharp blue colorway and wedge shape design. A "Like" button replaces the home button and the sides of the phone boast Instragram and Spotify buttons. All of this sounds fairly interesting except the speakers, microphone and handset are on the back of the phone. Would anyone buy a phone like this?
(Spotted @ Yanko Design)
Im not sure how the hell this one slipped past me. If you're one of Wiz' millions of followers and you already have it. Good for you. If you're late to the party like me, well theres still some leftovers. Production courtesy of Harry Fraud.

Its a slow Tuesday folks.
Looking for a dirty, nasty, freaky track to help you thru this Tuesday? Well AC has just the thing to help cure that erge. Be on the lookout for AC's "Courtesy of a Nightmare" album dropping something this summer.
Oh, now Kim K wants to hide her face from the camera! These 2 were spotted sitting front row while Ye and Jay performed "Nig*as In Paris" at a show in Birmingham, England. This is the first time Ive seen a pic of both of them together. I wonder if like "hanging out" with each other?
Shawn originally dropped this track in March and now we have a new version featyring GLC. His mixtape Lovestory is set to drop July 26th featuring Timbaland, GLC, Phil Ade, Kris Kasanova, Buddy, Gang Colours, and more.
Its been some time since we got to hear new music from Jared Evan. Well the wait is over as Jared came together with The DJBooth and Karmaloop to give us 8 new tracks produced by !llmind and III Factor. Apparently this project has been in the works since 2009 (a rather long time for 8 songs if you ask me) but its 100% Jared quality.

Brand new mixtape from J.A.E. 16 hard hitting hip hop tracks featuring appearnaces from AC, The Kid Daytona, Ali Vegas and more.

I always love seeing this type of video. Everyone wonders how their stuff is made and from the looks of the FALSE brand process, its a very careful method. The video shows the attention to detail that's put into each piece from individually hand-screened and finished all the way down to individual serial #'s. Check it out and head over the their online shop to scoop up your own goodies.
As promised, heres the latest track from Mr. Fiasco. Im feeling the message but Im not 100% on the track itself. I dunno, I look forward to hearing more from F&L 2 but this track would never get radio play.
Pusha T is making some serrrrrious moves in the hip hop game. I could have done without the Swizz feature, but this track is still crazy. Cant wait for Cruel Summer!
What happens when you mix YC, The Police, Rick Ross, Rage Against The Machine, Kanye West and Gotye together? No, you dont get Justin Beiber. But you do get a dope mixtape from Terry Urban full of interesting cuts. Yeah, all your friends will be soooo jealous when you roll up playing this sh*t.

Have been looking for some new Donnis lately? Well today is your luck day. Peep the visuals from his latest single "Hello Kitty" off the forthcoming Break Hundreds And Hearts EP. I enjoyed watching the video for the hot Asian chicks. Hot Asians ALWAYS make the party that much better.
New visuals from MMG's own Stalley off the "Songs From Me, Stalley" series.
Lupe gives us a preview of his newest track "Bitch Bad" which drops next Tuesday, 6/26. Hopefully this is received a lot better than his last relese.
This has to be the absolute WORST pic of an athlete celebrating....well, anything! My boy J. Flixx sent me this picture of Chris Bosh after the Miami win over OKC and...*sigh, well you can see for yourself what I mean. Believe me when I tell you I've been laughing for the last 30 mins at this image. The champagne plus his facial (no pun intended) expression are priceless!
Kid Ink grabs Tyga and Chris "the club brawler" Breezy for the remix of his single "Time of Your Life" off his debut album Up And Away. You can pick up the debut album now via iTunes.
Nina Sky aims to take over the dance floors (sorry Usher) with the new single "Heartbeat" off their upcoming album Nicole & Natalie.
This one flew past my radar a few days ago. Its not your usual Lex Luger production, but if Lex wants to remain in the game he has to move on and grow from his recognized sound. All in all its a dope track.
Brand new EP from Swiss-American hip-hop duo Nefew (Polemikk and PA-Double) and Virginia rhymesayer Shakes. Featyring 5 original records, all produced by the one and only Nottz.

Kydd is one of those artists that if I were to find myself as head of a flourishing record label, I would sign in a heart beat. This kid (no pun intended) has shown consistent growth since I first put him on the site a few years ago. You cant find too many up and coming artists that stick with the game and keep getting better and better. Case in point is this new joint I just received featuring GLC, Tank and Max Frost w/ Click Clack on the beat. If Kydd were to somehow add Big K.R.I.T. to this joint it would make the cypher complete. Check it.
Ok...WTF?!? Is Adidas worried about people losing their shoes? Are these supposed to be the new kicks of the NBA (get it)? I mean, really??
In case you're wondering if these are real, then the answer is yes. The shoes were designed by Jeremy Scott, whom we all know has some "different" designs. But this?? This is a bit much. C'mon, chains and shackles (with Adidas written across them none the less)? I'm sure someone in the Adidas board room knew better.
Here's an interesting little infographic I found. You think you have a choice of what brands you want to support and which ones you don't? Well, take a look at this (click for full size) and think again. Crazy.
Brand new visuals from the G.O.O.D. music crew. *Swerve
My dude E-Major dropped the visuals for his latest track "Big Cake" as part of the group EPNT. Check it out!
Ok...I'm really not sure where to go with this one. I honestly thought dude was joking around with this last adult tune effort and now we get a track that's waaayyyy more graphic and ridiculous. How did Brian go from "Back At One" to Back That Ass Up?!? Speechless...totally speechless. But its pretty damn funny.
BTW, make sure your headphones are on if you're listening at work. This song is in no way shape or form safe for the office. Unless you work at the office of the porn site he recorded this for.
T. Mills popped up on my radar yesterday after appearing in the new Rocksmith Summer 2012 collection preview video. I figured, "hey, if the boys over at Rocksmith f's with this dude maybe I should check him out." So I did and found out Mills hails from the Golden State and is currently signed to Columbia records. Hes working on his upcoming project Thrillionaire which will be presented by Rocksmith and Dat-Piff. Here we have the latest release from the project featuring production by The Monsters and The Strangers.

While Im on the topic of Curren$y's new album, the good folks at Complex deliver a full album stream. Featuring appearances from Wiz Khalifa, Wale, 2 Chainz, Marsha Ambroshius, Estelle and more. Full album in stores June 5th.
You know what, I think this might be the best Curren$y album I've heard so far. I probably could have done without Pharrell on the hook but I really like this joint. The Stoned Immaculate drops June 5th.
I'll be honest, I'm new to the Canadian band Down With Webster. The track caught my eye because of the features and production credit and I'm glad it did. From the name of the band to the features and even the producer, once I hit play the sound that I heard wasn't what I expected. Press the little side ways triangular button and see what I mean. Pretty dope.
