Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar have both had themselves a very busy 2015 thus far. For Kendrick he’s dropped his highly-anticipated sophomore studio album in To Pimp a Butterfly and Kanye has kept himself busy with fashion, multiple interviews, “All Day”, a guest verse here and there and his new album So Help Me God is forthcoming. And now the two join forces on ‘Ye’s “All Day” remix. Kendrick Lamar provides a full verse despite the inital leak only containing a part of it. You can check out Kendrick’s full verse on ‘Ye’s “All Day” after the jump.
The world is fiending for some new Kanye West. “Only One” wasn’t enough. “All Day” wasn’t enough. His guest appearance on Big Sean’s new album wasn’t enough. Everyone waiting for that So Help Me God to drop. Whenever that’ll happen. If ever. And now the song Vic Mensa has been teasing for over month is finally here. “U Mad” is a collaborative track between Mensa and ‘Ye. It features production from ‘Ye, Mike Dean, Smoko Ono, Stefan Ponce and Charlie Heat. That’s a whole lot of muscle to come up with such a deceptively simple track that sounds like it’s fit more for 2012 than 2015. Anyway, I won’t judge. You be the judge. Check it out after the jump.
Here’s one way to get your morning started: a Rick Ross/Lex Luger banger. You may recall Rozay and Luger linked up in 2010 for what would be one of Ross’ best known tracks to date in “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast)” so this new one here is sure to get the clubs riled up. No wonder as to whether this is merely a loosie or if it’ll appear on some project down the line. Either way, this track is pretty bangin’ if I say so myself. Check out Rick Ross’ “Dog Food” after the jump.
A$AP Rocky, who is currently prepping the release of his forthcoming sophomore album At.Long.Last.A$AP, has released a new song. It’s called “M’$” and was produced by C-Note and Mike Dean.

Check it out after the jump.

Here, on this latest effort, Yayo goes in on Channel Live’s “Mad Izm” track. Hear it only after the jump.
DJ Kay Slay has a new mixtape on the way entitled The Industry Purge and he’s teasing the project with some serious heat. “Memories,” a track which is set to appear on the forthcoming mixtape (dropping later tonight, so keep your ears open) features some heavy hitters in Young Buck, Freeway and Fame. In case you didn’t know, that’s Young Buck of G-Unit, the infamous Philly freestyle legend Freeway and one-half of the legendary M.O.P. You know, no big deal. Listen to “Memories” after the jump.
Kanye West dropped his street banger “All Day” in spectacular fashion (at the BRIT Awards while surrounded by mad goons dressed in all black and flamethrowers) and it appears as though one Kendrick Lamar will be appearing on the remix of the track. That’s right, the To Pimp a Butterfly emcee is on the remix of ‘Ye’s “All Day.” No word as to when the official, version drops but we’re guessing it’s just gonna drop outta nowhere — given the latest music release trends of the past couple years. You can check out a snippet below, which contains a lyrics from Kendrick that goes: “Chi-Town, we play for the free base/These days don’t believe what police say/DJs and the b-boys rush it.” Get at it!
