Rich Homie Quan recently announced that he is officially splitting from Rich Gang (Young Thug and Birdman, being the other two members at the moment) to focus on his own brand. Quan didn’t exactly reveal any juicy details as to why, given his rapport with fellow Atlantan (and self-proclaimed “brother”) Young Thug. Could this be Rich Homie Quan’s answer to the recent, highly publicized squabble between Lil Wayne and Birdman? Who knows. There is no real, definitive answer as Quan has wisely kept his lips sealed on the matter. However, it’s worth noting that as soon as word got out about Quan’s departure a song entitled “My Homie” surfaced online. The song, as the internet collectively has noted is ironic, with both Quan and Thugger being on the track together. But we doubt there’s any beef, so to speak, between Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug, and we can probably expect more collaborations between the two. Anyway, enough gossip, check out “My Homie” after the jump.

The mystery surrounding Kanye West’s “All Day” has been constant, never letting up one bit, with rumors and speculation growing tantamount as Yeezy season is quickly approaching in 2015. With “Only One” making its debut at the very beginning of the year, “FourFiveSeconds” arriving via Rihanna, and “Wolves” making its way into the public’s ears as part of Kanye’s adidas fashion show one thing is certain: expect the unexpected. And now, ‘Ye is finally blessing us with “All Day” at the BRIT Awards. Kanye West performed the track surrounded by a massive crowd of people, all dressed in black, as well as a pair of blowtorches. You can watch it all unfold after the jump. Warning: prepare to get hyped!
Sean Price teams up with Havoc for a tribute to Brazilian mixed martial artist Anderson Silva. The track is complied by Alkota using samples from J-Zone’s own Lunch Breaks pack. Check it out after the jump.

“Sophisticated Thoughts,” “Simple Minds,” “Disney Kids.” Those are just a few cuts Queens rapper Julian Stephen has delivered as of late. And we here at iHipHop believe if you haven’t yet gotten yourself acquainted with him click on those hyperlinks and do so! Because 2015 is looking to be Julian Stephens’ year to prove his worth to the industry as he drops off the visuals for “Get It Together,” a short but somber effort akin to Chicago’s psychedelic superstar Chance The Rapper. With “Get It Together” Julian showcases his witty yet positive lyricism all with his head firmly on his shoulders. If your New Year’s resolution is to be a better person but can’t seem to find any positive reinforcement then Julian is here for ya. Check out Julian Stephen’s “Get It Together” after the jump!
When are we getting some new Denzel Curry? 2013’s Nostalgic 64 was one of the best hip-hop records released that year. But sadly since then the Miami rapper has barely released much. Sure, Curry has given us stuff like “Feel Like That” and “Certified” but frankly I’m waiting on some full length material. Be it an album or mixtape. I don’t care. And listening to Denzel Curry’s new track “Ultimate” has me hyped tenfold for whatever he has in store. Hearing Curry rap over a Dixieland type beat is truly something else and judging by that artwork above Curry isn’t playin’ in 2015. Listen to “Ultimate” after the jump.
Yesterday we posted a video of Raekwon debuting his new track featuring French Montana on Shade 45. But thankfully we don’t have to go to that video each time we wanna hear it because Rae is sharing the official full audio featuring both French Montana and Busta Rhymes. The track will serve as the first single off of Fly International Luxurious Art, out April 28. Listen after the jump.
eLZhi has kept quiet for a while and that’s utterly disappointing for any real hip-hop head out there. Despite appearing on some notable tracks in 2014 like Phat Kat’s “All Madden” and Ghostface Killah’s “Gunshowers” eLZhi has been awfully silent when it comes to his solo work. But we have some good news: that will fortunately end in 2015 with the release of eLZhi’s upcoming Lead Poison album. And to tease us for the new album, eLZhi is sharing “February” the first single from Lead Poison. Listen after the jump.
Big Sean’s much anticipated third studio album Dark Sky Paradise drops today and to tease at some new music the Detroit player is sharing a freestyle entitled “Me, Myself & I” (it’s over Beyonce’s song of the same name.) Needless to say, Big Sean goes in, dropping bars. Rumor has it Sean also disses Kendrick Lamar. Sneak dissing still hot in 2015? Hopefully not. Listen to Big Sean’s “Me, Myself & I” freestyle after the jump.
T.I. and Young Thug struck gold with “About the Money” in 2014 and would team up once again for “We Want War.” So it was inevitable the two ATLiens would dap it up and release more music together. And today T.I. and Thugger share “Off-Set” a track from the soundtrack to the upcoming Furious 7 film, which hits theaters on April 3rd. Listen to “Off-Set” after the jump.
