Rick Ross’ forthcoming studio album Hood Billionaire is due out November 24th and today he shares his Timbaland produced, Jay Z featured track “Movin’ Bass”. The track finds Ross delivering some fiery street verses and Jay handling the hook (yep, the hook) and it’s a pretty dope cut despite no actual verse from Hova. Listen after the jump.
On Thursday October 30, 2014 the 2014 Power 105.1 Powerhouse took place at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center, the home of the Brooklyn Nets. iHipHop.com was on-hand to document the event, which featured performances by Jeezy (with special guest Jay Z), J. Cole, French Montana, Migos, Childish Gambino, and more. Click through this slideshow to see photos of the nights events. All photos by Lauren Gesswein.
Ludacris continues his streak of dropping fire freestyles over notable hip-hop tracks of the last year. After sharing the best “Hot N***a” freestyle and dropping his “Tuesday” freestyle, Luda went ahead and snapped on Pusha’s “Numbers on the Board”. Now he’s gifting the fans with that braggadocios ish with “Tom Ford”. Listen after the jump and be on the lookout for Luda’s Burning Bridges EP dropping in December.
Bey-Z rises from the rubble unscathed. Amber Rose pulls a J-Lo with her almost-not-a-dress. Nicki pulls her dress together by seams. RiFF RaFF, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift play their positions clumsily and look really and truly not cool bruh. Check the pics and videos after the jump.
Either Hov has some extracurricular friends who are getting waaaaaaay out of pocket or this broad cray. We like to think it’s both but the evidence won’t skew in one direction. She doesn’t use her own name to boost this track’s profile, so we won’t either. “Mrs. Carter” is the scream from the abyss of fifteen lost minutes of
fame infamy. This is a blow to the Main Chicks and Wifey party. One it may not ever bounce back from. Video after the jump.
The Snowman stops in with hip-hop’s favorite auntie interviewer. He talks mostly about his new record, and how Jay-Z doesn’t cry but could cry if he wanted to because he’s that rich. But truthfully, this is a good insight into Jeezy’s origins in the poorest part of Atlanta and how he uses that experience to guide him as a music entrepreneur. Watch after the jump.
What makes a summer song? It’s sweaty but never sad about it. The right summer smash makes you put the double-decker barbecue plate on your lawn chair, pour out something cool and get close to the speakers. It’s naked and unashamed, of course. The song’s gotta be loud. Not volume-wise either. You need to be able to open that sunroof, lower the windows on the highway and still annoy passersby with the bass drop. They’re great songs because they’re disposable songs. A summer jam is the wet wipe of music: refreshing as it is fleeting and oh so useful at the right time.
Load these songs into your playlist and be the DJ you always wanted for the weekend.
In this tribute to a fading star, Spike Lee, Jay Z, Action Bronson, Skylar Diggins and more tip their hats to New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter. It’s a slow spot without being somber. And New York figures past and present make appearances. Video after the jump.
To the left, to the left. Sending off Hov in a yacht to the left. According to TMZ and HuffPost and about 10,000 sweaty fans, Beyoncé modified the lyrics to her song “Resentment” to call out Jay Z for cheating. This is the moment thirst vacuums and Hov haters have been waiting for: the divorce that makes Beyoncé single again. But all you 9-to-5ers and basic hood vendors can say goodbye to the dream that never was. Bey ain’t marrying you. We came up with a list of chaps she might give a second glance once Team Yonce and handlers review. Hit the jump and click through.
