New Music: Cam’ron – “Come And Talk To Me”

Cam addresses Jay’s claim that he made millions through Jigga Power. Generally seems as if he’s back to his sh*t-talking antics and enjoying being a rapper (even pushing 40!) This new tape, Ghetto Heaven Vol. 1 might be more than just computers ‘putin. Might be.

Video: Drake Performs In New York At ALIFE

Champagne Papi performs at ALIFE and brings out Travis $cott and The Chef, Raekwon. Hat tip to NahRight for the post.

Video: Just Blaze Says Dame Dash “Could Be A Jerk”

Dame Dash’s infamous temper and arrogance are no secret. But Just Blaze talks more expressly about the value of maintaining relationships in any industry, and why he believes it’s hard for the former Roc-A-Fella exec to make a comeback with his history of burning bridges.

Video: Big Sean’s “Road To Hall Of Fame”

Big Sean’s Hall Of Fame has not lived up to his grand expectations…the kind you have when you name your sophomore album Hall Of Fame, that is. But he is not without talent and some cleverness to boot so he’s giving fans and other viewers a chance to get to know him better (since it doesn’t appear that they’re buying anything he’s selling). He’s but a few Nicki Minaj and Kanye West features away from another hit and then — BAM! — famous again. Hang in there, Sean.

Video: Wiz Khalifa Talks “Blacc Hollywood” And His Start In Rap

His wife, his son, and a pound of weed. The three things Wiz would bring with him if stranded on a desert island. It speaks to his maturity and…his love of cannabis…all at once. So complete, this man.

Video: Pusha T – “King Push”

It’s happening. Pusha T is releasing the videos from the My Name Is My Name project, and as he said in his own “Twitter rant” he doesn’t care about the numbers. He’s right not to, because Clipse/Pusha fans have long supported them without needing the validation of it being the most popular idea: the poetic hustler-turned-repentant-artist.

New Music: Raekwon – “Marble Cake” (Pound Cake Freestyle)

rae-marble-cake-pound-cake

Legendary alive. Reminding everyone who originated the concept behind Drake’s homage on NWTS is Raekwon. Glad someone in that age bracket is still interested in rapping powerfully (ahem, Hov).

Big Sean Joins Derrick Rose For “All In” Event In Chicago

Big Sean met up with the last MVP not named LeBron James for an adidas-sponsored event to perform his song “Beware.” Derrick Rose explained how good he felt to be returning for another NBA season, and Big Sean added how great it was to be paired with legends. Buuuut, that’s pretty much the story of Big Sean’s career, like a rap Scottie Pippen minus the Hall Of Fame part. Hat tip to GWHH.

New Music: Mickey Factz – “The New Rockstars (Culture)”

“Rap the new Rock and Roll!” is the Kanye-inspired hook on this new Mickey Factz joint. He’s making sure the culture is alive by responding to it and moving with it, one of Mickey’s best attributes. The rhymes work too. Stream after the jump. (more…)

Video: Armani – “Kush Salad” feat. Freddie Gibbs And King Louie

Gibbs. That’s the only reason this is here. Gibbs. From 2:04 to 2:56. Everything else is just people who rap in a generic way that inspires nothing. Or is a propos of nil.

Video: Meek Mill Freestyle On FunkMaster Flex

He’s still a master of cadence, even if his lyric range is basically the same. The kid has endless flows. The a cappella style accentuates it.
