So far the album doesn’t have a title, although it will drop in November (the 13th is the date being passed around right now) and he’s sharing its first single in “GOD.” “GOD” is produced by exciting new Atlanta producers TM88 and Southside, so you know it’s gonna thump.

During her acceptance speech for “Anaconda” (it received the Best Hip-Hop Video Award, for some odd reason?) Nicki Minaj took issue with host Miley Cyrus, who had some choice words for Nicki in an interview with The New York Times. Nicki used her time on stage to throw some shots back at Miley. “And now, back to this b***h who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?” she sneered. Miley attempted to say her comments were taken out of context, but Nicki wasn’t having it. Check out the full video after the jump.

As previously Kanye West went on to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards. And it was Taylor Swift who of course presented Ye with the award… because ratings. In addition to calling Ye a “friend,” she joked “I’mma let you finish, but Kanye West has had one of the greatest careers of all time,” referring to West’s infamous interruption in 2009. Ye went on a wild diatribe about kids, award shows, and even Justin Timberlake (who apparently inspired him.) Oh right, he also announced his run for President in the 2020 election. Okay, cool. You can watch the entire video after the jump.

Fashawn has got to be one of the most heavily slept on rappers in the game. After dropping a stellar and criminally underrated album earlier this year in The Ecology, Fashawn returns with “100 Bars.” “100 Bars” is a five minute freestyle from Fashawn — finding the rapper going off on Jay Z’s 1996 classic “Coming of Age” from Jigga’s watershed debut album, Reasonable Doubt. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise for seasoned rap fans who’ve watched and listened to Fashawn over the years — not to mention his killer freestyle on Showoff Radio. Fashawn will also be embarking upon a European tour, which kicks off tonight! Check the dates of Fashawn’s tour and “100 Bars” after the jump.

CeeLo Green is an OG to this rap ish. Many might not be familiar with CeeLo’s work outside of, I don’t know, judging television shows and being the guy who sang “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley. But when he’s not busy with the aforementioned, CeeLo is a member of legendary Atlanta rap group Goodie Mob. (If you’re new, you should check out Soul Food, the group’s excellent debut album from 1995.) But CeeLo is looking to recharge his solo battery with “Sign of the Times,” a socially-conscious track that reminds us of those good ol’ Goodie days. Check out CeeLo’s “Sign of the Times” after the jump.

Mos Def (or Yasiin Bey) has been a lot of noise lately. After dropping a stellar cut in “Basquiat Ghostwriter,” Bey returns with “Sensei on the Block.” “Sensei on the Block” is produced by Ski Beatz and features Bey going in with serious rhymes. This is truly a track meant for his day one fans, and it’s a pleasant surprise! Check out Mos Def’s (Yasiin Bey’s) new track “Sensei on the Block” after the jump.

The Future stimulus is real. Uncle Murda is teaming up with Fewtch for “Right Now” which is also produced by Metro Boomin — one of rap’s biggest and (pun intended) booming producers in the game.

Macklemore-Ryan-Lewis-Downtown-2015-1200x1200-500x500

So, uh, Macklemore is back. After hitting it big with buddy Ryan Lewis (byway of smash hits like “Same Love” and “Thrift Shop”) the Seattle artist is back with “Downtown,” a track that has already garnered unfair comparisons to Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.” And while “Downtown” also keeps the funk alive, it is surprisingly flat and monotone — with Macklemore “spitting” empty lines about God-knows-what. There’s even a segment in the five minute (yes five whole minutes) track where Macklemore sounds suspiciously similar to one Snoop Dogg for whatever reason. The video — which you may stream after the jump — is quite the doozy. For starters: the choreography is so forced and is clearly there to set up his upcoming VMA performance. (Just look at the set for the music video, it’s on that same empty Hollywood backlot you’ve seen in countless movies and videos before.) And not to mention there are some really misplaced cameos from old-school rap heads Kool Moe Dee, Melle Mel, and Grandmaster Caz. Oh, right, there’s also legendary baseball player Ken Griffey, Jr. Because he played for the Seattle Mariners. Get the connection? I suppose this is a good time for me to stop the Mackelmore hate. Decide if you like “Downtown” after the jump!
