Fredo Santana isn’t one to mince words, which is precisely why it’s quite simple here: fu*k the other side. Don’t get it confused, Fredo says. And with a song title and message like that, how could you possibly get it twisted? The message was sent as soon as you read the title. Watch the video to Fredo Santana’s “Fu*k the Other Side” after the jump.
Make no mistake, Cassidy is a pure spitter. Thirteen years removed from his now infamous freestyle battle with fellow Philadelphian Freeway (Cassidy was 19-years-old at the time), Cass is still a renowned and feared opponent whenever it comes to battling. And that’s precisely where we find Cassidy on “Mr. Chicken”, a complete smack-talking track that serves as a preface for his upcoming battle against Dizaster. Again, Cass is a pure spitter be it in the ring or in the booth. Listen after the jump.

The story of Makonnen is quite touching: a weirdo kid out of place in Atlanta knocking on virtually every door possible only to have them all slammed in his face until finally striking a friendship/working relationship with rising local producers Metro Boomin and (later) Sonny Digital. This relationship led to the creation of “Tuesday”, Makonnen’s smash hit. Makonnen, now signed to Drake’s OVO imprint, is keeping busy, and today we are introduced to MikeWiLLMakonnen (Mike WiLL Made It x Makonnen). You may listen to their wistful new track “Wishin’ You Well” after the jump.

After A$AP Mob officially scrapped their highly anticipated, long gestating crew album a week ago fans seemingly began to lose hope for the Harlem collective. That is, of course, until founder A$AP Yams announced that A$AP Rocky’s album is “up next”. And today we receive perhaps the first single off said album, “Multiply” featuring Memphis legend (and everyone’s favorite) Juicy J. Some noteworthy lyrics from Rocky: “Come to Harlem if you’ve never seen Baghdad”. Video after the jump.
Rick Ross is prepping the release of his forthcoming studio album Hood Billionaire and he’s already been so kind to bless us with the Project Pat featured “Elvis Presley BLVD” a few weeks back. Now he’s giving us another exclusive, the R. Kelly featured “Keep Doin’ That”. That’s the single artwork above. Hood Billionaire is slated to drop November 24th. After the jump.
Childish Gambino’s DJ Drama hosted Gangsta Grillz mixtape is here. That’s right, you read that correctly: a Childish Gambino Gangsta Grillz mixtape. Hip-hop has really come a looong way from Lil Wayne spitting over the now infamous “Cannon” beat to Gambino. STN MTN finds Donald Glover’s rap alter ego Childish Gambino utilizing the platform as a half mixtape/half EP. For the STN MTN portion of the project Gambino will freestyle over some notable beats including “Move That Dope” and “Southern Hospitality” alongside original material. There’s also a concept at play here, something about money made from the EP keeping Kauai clean? Who truly knows when you’re dealing with Gambino. Stream/download STN MTN after the jump.
In case you’ve been wondering where Ludacris has been he excuses his absence at the beginning of his “Hot N***a” freestyle. And although Luda may seem a tad bit late to the party (Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” was released as a single in July) he delivers a focused and downright aggressive freestyle. We must say, it’s a welcome addition to all the lousy “Hot N***a” freestyles and remixes we’ve heard so far this year. Luda’s still got it, that’s for sure. Listen after the jump.
