With Rich Homie Quan now officially solo (as he stepped away from Rich Gang) he is prepping the release of his debut full length. Crazy to think RHQ still hasn’t had a solo album, especially since his smash hit “Type of Way” first made waves in the summer of 2013. Either way, RHQ is determined to drop something this year. Here, he teams up with his frequent produced Will-a-Fool for “You Not.” Check it after the jump!
iLoveMakonnen has released the Drink More Water 5 mixtape, which features collaborations with Migos, Rome Fortune, Gucci Mane, and more. It also includes the previously released “Drink More Water 5 Freestyle” and “Super Clean.” You can download it right here via LiveMixtapes, check out the tracklist after the jump, and also stream the whole thing after the jump.
Just a day removed from dropping the stellar “Southside” Tony Yayo returns with another new one in “Front Door.” Here Yayo adds some fly ish to Main Source’s “Looking Out the Front Door” beat. You can check out Yayo’s “Front Door” after the jump.
While Bobby Shmurda and his GS9 mates are still locked up behind bars that hasn’t stopped them from going full Gucci Mane on everybody by dropping tracks while incarcerated. Little is known as far as their legal situation (although it is said that their bail has been denied and many attempts to revoke the decision have been put in place) but as far as music they’ve been steadily releasing some new material to keep their names buzzing in them streets (and blogs, I guess.) You can peep a new Bobby Shmurda cut in “Get a Room for Ya” after the jump. It features GS9 mate Rowdy Rebel and one Abillyon.
Young Dolph is joined by fellow Memphis rapper Juicy J and Atlanta’s 2 Chainz for an updated version of “Pulled Up.” The track, produced by Chill Go Hard, chronicles the aforementioned rappers and their love for luxury automobiles. Check it out after the jump.
Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y are no strangers to jumping on a track together. The two have made full length projects together before. And here, for “Uber Driver,” the two spitters reunite. “Uber Driver” is set to appear on the duo’s upcoming new project #2009. Bump that new track after the jump.
There’s been a lot of throwback ish lately and Tony Yayo’s “Southside” may be added to the growing list of retro-inspired hip-hop. Here he goes over Eric B. & Rakim’s seminal cut “Paid In Full.” Check it out after the jump.
Wale’s highly-anticipated fourth studio album The Album About Nothing hits stores four days from now! And today a new track has been leaked onto the world wide web. Here Wale teams up with Dreamville’s J. Cole for “The Pessimist.” The two have collaborated in the past so this track is a welcome return. Check out Wale’s “The Pessimist” after the jump.
Fabolous’ ongoing #FridayNightFreestyles has been a relative success thus far but with this new one right here it’s either make it or break it for how you feel about Loso. Sure, he’s already gone over an undisputed classic in his “B.A.S.” freestyle but Mobb Deep’s 1994 cut “Shook Ones Pt. II” is a milestone/watershed moment for hip-hop. It’s such a statement in hip-hop culture that even one iconic Detroit rapper Eminem has stated numerous times that its had a profound impact on him. In fact, you may recall Eminem’s “B-Rabbit” character from 8 Mile rapping over the track during his final freestyle battle. Anyway, if Loso doesn’t deliver and do this classic instrumental justice then his whole #FridayNightFreestyles is moot. You be the judge after the jump.
Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart have a new movie out today. Go Hard is currently in theaters and T.I. is providing some music for the official soundtrack. It’s worth noting that Tip is also part of the cast as Russell, a family member of Kevin Hart’s character Darnell. Check out T.I.’s “I Go Hard” from the Go Hard soundtrack after the jump.
Styles P just can’t stop giving. I guess the “P” stands for Presents because this man has all the gifts, even when you’re least expecting ‘em. After dropping some serious gems a week back with “Still Bangin'” and “Don’t Fade Em” P returns with a remix of Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late cut “Energy.” Check it out after the jump.
Bodega BAMZ’ forthcoming project Sidewalk Exec is due out April 14th and having already previewed “Billy Bats” BAMZ is returning with a Flatbush ZOMBiES featured cut. “Bring ‘Em Out” reunites with his fellow New Yorkers (BAMZ from Harlem, ZOMBiES from Brooklyn) over Tan Boy regular V’Don’s production. Listen after the jump.
It was just yesterday where Young Thug released two new tracks in “Halftime” and “Beat It.” The set of tracks was produced by Thugger’s go-to producer London on da Track. Today Thugger is sharing another new one in “Just Might Be.” This one is produced by one Wheezy. Kind of an ironic producer name/association given Lil Wayne’s recent discrepancies with YMCMB, the label Young Thug is currently signed to. Any who, check out “Just Might Be” after the jump.
Rihanna is dropping some new music, as promised. “B***h Better Have My Money” will show up on the follow-up to 2012’s Unapologetic. That as-yet-untitled album is being executive produced by Kanye West and includes the previously released single “FourFiveSeconds” and “American Oxygen”, which was previewed during a NCAA commercial for March Madness. Check out Rihanna’s “B***h Better Have Money” after the jump.
