Charles Hamilton, who showed promised in the mid-2000s, has had some major career setbacks and sadly has never been able to adapt to the ever-changing music industry.

But for now Hamilton is dropping a new solo track entitled “Correct.” Check out the new Charles Hamilton track “Correct” after the jump.
Fabolous can’t seem to escape the past. Throughout his career Fab has worked in references to the old school; sports, music, culture, video games, clothing, etc. You name it, Fab has somehow managed to squeeze it into his bars. His most recent project The Young OG Project in it of itself was riddled with nostalgia. So it only makes sense for the Brooklyn emcee to continue with this on his “B.A.S Freestyle.” In case you didn’t get the reference via the art above, it’s Fab going over Dr. Dre’s song “B***hes Ain’t Sh*t” from his 1992 debut album The Chronic. Check it out after the jump.
Los Angeles and Philadelphia collide on “The Soundtrack” as The Game and Meek Mill combine their collective powers on the track. Listen to The Game and Meek Mill’s “The Soundtrack” after the jump.

This is the first new song Jay Electronica has shared since last year’s “Better in Tune With the Infinite.” He is also starring in the film Into the Light which is scheduled to be released this year. Listen to “Road to Perdition” after the jump.
Migos are set to drop their debut album YRN later this year but in the meantime the trio of Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset are prepping their successors with Migo Lingo. Contrary to what you may have read online this isn’t exactly a Migos mixtape per se, especially given its misleading title. In fact, Migos only appear on three tracks here. The rest of the mixtape serves as an introduction to fellow Atlanta rappers YRN Lingo, Mango, Domingo, and Migo Bands. Featured on Migo Lingo are frequent Migos collaborators Skippa Da Flippa, Johnny Cinco, and Rich the Kid. You may stream and download the mixtape after the jump. Again: do not go into this thinking it’s a Migos project otherwise you will surely be disappointed.
HBO’s series Game of Thrones is huge. Hip-hop is huge. I suppose it only makes sense that the two powerhouse cultures join forces eventually.
