(Spotted @ Grantland)
As promised, heres the lastest Kanye West assisted track from 2 Chainz. Based on a T.R.U. Story hits stores 8/14.
Looks like we all have something to look forward to on Tuesday. No clue why they decided to drop the track on a Tuesday but hell, why not give the 2nd day of the week some shine. I don't know about you, but I expect to hear a lot of "Truuu" and "Huhhh" on this track. Happy Birthday.
New music from ASTR to get the club floor jumping. I'm a tough critic on dance music but this joint is pretty dope. I could definitely hear this as a segway into Ellie Goulding's "Lights".
Download: ASTR - "Razor"
Iggy, T.I., a bunch of adolescent pageant contestants, pixie sticks & Mountain Dew. Im...Im not sure if I even feel comfortable posting this??
Rozay made quite a buzz when he first leaked the fact that this song was appearing on his upcoming album. Well, the day has come and the track has officially been released. I like it. Im now "wow'ed" by it. But I like it. God Forgives, But I Don't hits shelves 7/31.
Listen: Rick Ross feat. Dr. Dre & Jay-Z - "3 Kings"
Despite the talk that's going on about Frank and his admitted "first love", you can't deny the dude is talented. His music is different than anything anyone else is bringing to the table and that speaks volumes. Volumes louder that his sexual preference. There, I said it. BUT, if you were still on the fence about purchasing his new album channel ORANGE, here's your chance to preview the entire project before you buy it. 17 tracks featuring appearances from John Mayer and Andre 3000, available now on iTunes. You're welcome.
Well look at this s*it. Mr. West makes his first ever reality TV show debut on none other than "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." This right here speaks volumes for what I fear is a mass hip hop following to reality TV. Click play to see Kanye be....well, "awkward" Kanye.
Here you have it folks. The official song line up for Rozay's much anticipated album God Forgives, I Don't. Can I just say that it appears Ross went all out on this one. Featuring appearances from Dr. Dre, Jay Z, Andre 3000, Usher, Ne-Yo, Drake and the entire MMG camp. Circle July 31st on your calendars.
01. Pray For Us
03. 3 Kings (feat. Dr. Dre & Jay-Z)
05. Maybach Music IV (feat. Ne-Yo)
06. Sixteen (feat. Andre 3000)

I missed this one when it dropped on the 4th. I had a chance to listen to the entire project on my way back from an out of town wedding last night and Mr. Glover came extra hard on this mixtape. The right amount of features, the beat selection is crazy and his lyrical game has stepped way up. A must have in your tape deck. Featuring appearances from ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Nipsey Hussle, Bun B, Ghostface Killah, RZA, Danny Brown and production from Boi-1da and The Maven Boys, Beck, Ludwig and Mr. Glover himself.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! As an added bonus, check out the track "Body" featuring Prodigy that just missed the cut. Now off to the pool!

I have a long 4th of July ahead of me so Im going to leave it off here for tonight. New music from Phreshy off PHCK$ Life: The New Religion mixtape set to drop real soon. How soon? I dunno, as soon as he sends me an e-mail telling me it dropped. haha.
Do you like gratuitous use of the word 'fu*ck'? Do you like to hear the word used in auto-tune? Well Ive got the track for you! JFK and Badio link up to express how impressed they are with things with a track that includes a hook which will never be played on your local radio station. Its a dope track that may overuse of the "F" word, but I like the fun flow. I also like to curse a lot.
I'm in a video posting mood at the moment. Here we have the official visuals for Off-Rip's single "Don't Show Up When I Blow Up" off his Meet Off-Rip mixtape (I think that's the most time Ive used 'off' in a sentence) hosted by by Don Cannon.
New visuals from Phreshy's single "Hit Me Up" off the Brave New World LP. Ive been tracking this dudes music and career since '08 and I feel like he's ready for the major leagues. He just needs the right backing to push his career to the next level. In the mean time, enjoy the shine he gets on SUPERXOFFICIAL.
Marky dropped these visuals a few weeks ago but Im just catching wind of it. "I Triumph" is featured on Marky's latest project Divine Intervention.
Check out Shawn Chrys and Timbo the King in their first collaboration effort. This track will most likely be on Shawn's upcoming project Lovestory which drops July 26th.
Rooozzayy! Was the Usher feature a little too soft for you hard Rick Ross fans? Well this track should be right up your alley. Perfect for cranking up really loud and making your neighbors feel uncomfortable. "Is he a gangster? Does he just really like the music loud? We're not sure so lets just peek out the front door." Silly neighbors.
Annnd the wait is over. Pound Cake Pusha and Yeezy give us an official preview of "New God Flow." The track drops at midnight on iTunes for the masses to purchase. I dont know about anyone else, but Pusha is killing sh*t lyrically. Wayne was smart to call off the beef.
You see this folks. This is why you try to refrain from giving hi-fives at an event where drinks are served. Especially if its Mr. Jay Hova you're trying to slap fives with. But from Jay's reaction, he was cool about it. Good for you Jigga. Taking a spilled glass of $10,000 champagne in stride. The things rich people laugh off. Whelp, that's it. That's my highlight of the show.
