travis-scott-future-2-chainz-500x500

You don’t see many 7+ minute rap songs nowadays. But Houston’s Travi$ Scott is looking to change that with his latest single, “3500.” “3500” is the first official single from Scott’s forthcoming debut album, Rodeo. It features Atlanta heavyweights 2 Chainz and Future. Peep the Metro Boomin, Mike Dean and Zaytoven-produced song after the jump, and hit iTunes for a purchase if you’re feeling it.

czarface-villain

Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck and 7L & Esoteric are back at it once more as Czarface. Looking to capitalize on their debut from two years ago, they’re releasing a new album. Their sophomore release, Every Hero Needs a Villain, is out on June 16. “Ka-Bang!” follows in the footsteps of teaming up with star-studded features a la Method Man (“Nightcrawler”) and Meyhem Lauren (“Deadly Class”), and now, DOOM is joining in. It makes sense that Czarface and DOOM are on a track together, right? Hopefully the world doesn’t implode. Check out “Ka-Bang!” after the jump.

Another W for Jay Z? Lil Wayne just released the first single from his forthcoming Free Wayne Album project (Tha Carter V still sits on the shelf) exclusively on TIDAL and it’s fire! Jay may have that W for putting this out exclusively on your streaming service but a huge W goes to Wayne for holding it down. Seriously, he snaps; rapping his ass off for over five minutes. While this was exclusively on TIDAL it’s now made its way around the web. Check out Wayne’s “Glory” after the jump.

Finally, some new Jay Rock! We’re remaining hopeful that he’s next up for an album release because he’s someone rap needs to drop a full length project. And Jay Rock’s return is quite awesome with this equally dope song title that’s got us thinking crazy. And for the second “Money Trees” Rock raps about those similar themes as in the first: making money and maintaining in the hood. Listen to “Money Trees Deuce” after the jump.

waka-flocka-game-on-good-charlotte

Uhhh, what? You’re as confused as I am. Apparently Waka Flocka Flame has a song out with Good Charlotte. In case you don’t know who Good Charlotte is, they’re a pop-punk band from the early 2000s. They had songs like “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” go gold in 2002–further revealing my age. They’ve pretty much been on hiatus since 2011 and haven’t recorded a new album since 2010. How do I know this? Because I’ve used my Googles. But for some strange reason they’ve reunited (I guess?) with one of Atlanta’s long forgotten rappers, Waka Flocka (Flockaveli 2 should be out sometime soon, I think. All I know is I still love the first Flockaveli.) Also another baffling thing about this entire scheme here is that it’s for the soundtrack of a movie called Pixels, which stars Adam Sandler and Kevin James (how exciting, right?) that’s due out July 24th. “Game On” just reminds me how far we’ve traveled since Run-D.M.C. and Aerosmith. Listen to “Game On” after the jump… if you want.

method-man-meth-lab

You know what was a good show? Breaking Bad. Throughout its five seasons creator Vince Gilligan and company crafted some fine dramatic television centered around a struggling high school chemistry teacher producing crystallized methamphetamine to secure his family’s financial future before he dies. If you have yet to see it I highly recommend it (I also suggest you quit living under a rock.) The show is such a hit that it’s reviving the career of one Staten Island rapper. Method Man is a legend in his own right (check out his debut album, Tical) but let’s be real: Wu-Tang Clan is finished, their latest album A Better Tomorrow is crap, and RZA has basically lost his mind. However that’s not stopping M-E-T-H-O-D (MAN) from trying to jump start his career in the burgeoning 2010s. Thanks to Breaking Bad (and the subsequent popularization of methamphetamines) he’s releasing a new project entitled… wait for it… The Meth Lab. Get it? Because he’s Method Man and his name has a connection with meth. Well, at least he’s trying something unlike GZA who’s merely complaining about contemporary rap lyrics (or lack thereof.) He’s also sharing the project’s track title which features Hanz On and Streetlife. Check it after the jump.
