Despite Nicki Minaj’s highly-anticipated forthcoming studio album The Pinkprint receiving a pushback to a December 15th release date that isn’t stopping Nicki from dropping new music. After treating the world with the amazing artwork (in which Drake is illustrated donning a pope hat) she now has officially shared the song. “Only” features Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown. Listen to the new Nicki Minaj single after the jump!

The Game is set to drop his anticipated Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf project next week (October 14th to be exact) and today he’s sharing “F*ck Yo Feelings” featuring Lil Wayne and Chris Brown. The Game previously shared “Black on Black” featuring Jeezy and Kevin Gates. Listen to “F*ck Yo Feelings” after the jump.
Chris Brown recently dropped his sixth studio album X and to celebrate he stopped by Power 106 to chop it up with production team L.A. Leakers. During his time with the duo he jumped on Schoolboy Q’s chart-topping single “Studio”. Listen after the jump.
Right after everybody’s cousin, uncle and auntie jumped on this beat…there was a real remix. Jadakiss is on it. Check. Fabolous is also on it. Check two. R&B’s own bad boy Chris Breezy too? Awww…it’s about to get violent. Throw in Busta Rhymes’s occasional Jamaican talk for fun. There’s no way to go wrong with such strong veteran presence mixed with an appealing beat to disguise some slowing spitters.
Here’s purified Chris Brown, dressed in all white, bringing along Usher to enhance his heartbreak-to-make-up tropes. Calming video with all the Boyz II Men “Water Runs Dry” allusions while playing up new romance. Although it couldn’t come from two less believable Romeos. Add Ross to the mix for some undeniable sleaze. Check the video after the jump.
G-Unit sounds angry to be together but that has sparked some competitive fire in 50 and Yayo especially. Buck also has a gruff piercing bark on the last few Gorilla Unit remakes. Listen to them spit complaints about lack of loyalty after the jump.
The only thing Chris Brown has been loyal to these days has been the slammer, but that doesn’t stop the R&B singer from dropping a video for his buzzing single with Lil Wayne and *insert assorted guest here* (this version features Tyga). X coming soon.
Pusha and Chris Brown managed to install a stripper pole at the beach for this video. My Name Is My Name drops tomorrow.
