 |  November 4, 2015


B.o.B. is sharing a loosie (pun intended) on this beautiful Wednesday evening, and although his home state of Ohio isn’t entirely down with the legalization of marijuana, that isn’t stopping ol’ Bobby Ray from sparking up. The latest track from B.o.B. is “Roll Up”, which–like its title suggests–is about the little substance we call marijuana (or loud, if you’re hip to the lingo). Here are some sample lyrics from the track to read along while you decompress from your busy workday: “Sometimes I get high to free my mind/ Is that alright? right right right”. And if those lyrics tickle your fancy, you can sing along to B.o.B.’s “Roll Up” after the jump!

Rich Homie Quan’s name recently appeared on Young Thug’s Halloween-themed Slime Season 2 mixtape–something many weren’t expecting after their dissolution. This seemingly small bit of information is actually crucial to the story of Quan and Thug because these two once sparring partners haven’t collaborated on a new track since their Rich Gang days. And although the track in question (“Never Made Love”) is an oldie, as well–recorded during those pivotal RG days–its appearance on Young Thug’s latest mixtape could hint at future collaborations between the two Atlanta rappers. However, Quan does have a new solo track with “Carlito”, a track that’s produced by Goose (also one of Thug’s main collaborators), and it’s a solid number overall that potentially hints at what his forthcoming debut album may sound like. Hit the play button on Rich Homie Quan’s “Carlito” after the jump.

New Music: Rick Ross – “Jumpman”

 |  October 30, 2015


It was a matter of time until Rick Ross jumped on that Drake and Future “Jumpman” joint, so here it is. The track, which is currently No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, has been making steady moves across the hip-hop community, as well as remixed and freestyled over quite a bit — especially within the last two weeks. And naturally we’re getting a Rozay treatment of the buzzing single from What a Time to Be Alive. After rocking with Post Malone’s “White Iverson”, Future’s “Stick Talk”, and even Adele’s “Hello”, it’s evident that Rick Ross has his ears to good tunes. Listen to Rozay’s latest take — “Jumpman” — after the jump.

With Halloween just around the corner, rap music is already preparing itself for the festivities. Rightfully so, it’s a season that’s ripe for conceptually interesting rap music. There’s even an entire subgenre within rap which, lest we forget, brazenly deals with the macabre. Although Sheek Louch makes rap music far from the ”horrorcore” style, his latest cut, ”Sucka Free” — featuring fellow D-Block rapper Jadakiss, no less — is a clinical bloodbath. Sheek makes work of the song, which is backed by a jagged and distorted beat. Additionally, Jadakiss’ guest spot — while perfectly adequate — discovers the Brooklyn emcee getting into holiday season early with an equally wicked verse. Check out Sheek Louch’s ”Sucka Free” from his forthcoming Gorillaween mixtape dropping October 31st.

Check out ”Switch Up” from R. Kelly after the jump, and mark your calendars for Buffet, dropping November 20th.

After sharing his take on Post Malone’s ”White Iverson” yesterday, Rick Ross returns with something a little bit more ”form fitting”, so to speak. Future, whose Monster mixtape turns one today (read a retrospective on it here), dropped his excellent DS2 album over the summer, which has apparently prompted Rozay to jump on one of its standout tracks, ”Stick Talk”. The track finds Rozay comfortably seated in the cockpit, and spitting bars over the high-energy Southside production. Additionally, Ross will be dropping his own album, Black Market, shortly. In the meantime, give his take on Future’s ”Stick Talk” after the jump.

Chance the Rapper is keeping active, to say the least. Fresh off a critically-acclaimed mixtape and tour, the Chicago spitter is sharing a brand new song. Of course, being the unpredictable character that he is, Chance’s new song has a bit of a backstory. Last week, Chance praised one Stephen Colbert — yes, the talk show host — for his exceptional musical chops (calling him ”amazing”, in the process), and sharing little else about a ”secret song” between the two. And after his performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night (you may watch the performance here), Chance is wasting no time in sharing the new track. In addition to featuring Saba on the mic, ”Angels” is written and performed by Chance, Lido, Peter Cottontale, Nate Fox, and Donnie Trumpet (for The Social Experiment) — sorry, no Stephen Colbert on an MPC here, folks. Check out the new Chance the Rapper track, ”Angels”, after the jump. Also, the track is available for free through iTunes — get it here!
