Over the last few weeks T.I. has been hinting at the release of a new project with the hashtag 9/11. And today is the day. T.I., or Tip in this case, is back. He’s dropped a new project in Da Nic EP and is also sharing a track off it in “Peanut Butter & Jelly” featuring Young Thug and Young Dro. The track is also produced by frequent Thug collaborator, London on da Track. Listen to “Peanut Butter & Jelly” after the jump.

Jay Rock’s sophomore album, 90059, will be dropping shortly. Finally, right? Seems like we’ve been waiting for this since he had that memorable verse on “Money Trees” back in 2012. But no worries, fam, as the most anticipated track on the album, “Vice City,” is out now. It features the entire Black Hippy collective — Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and ScHoolboy Q are all in the mix — going in on Cardo’s roomy beat. “Vice City” is, however, missing a Tommy Vercetti sample somewhere. I personally find Rock and Lamar’s exaggerated deliveries and outrageous flows to be the best moments on the track, with Lamar in particular going HAM. (He throws off some crazy lines like “10th grade, I gave her all shade, but now she got some ass, I wanna hit it now” and “I just bought a new coat, I just might go broke, I can’t stand myself”.) Don’t sweat, Soul and Q also go bar-for-bar, too. Want to hear it? Check out this 90059 banger from the Black Hippy collective after the jump, and don’t you sleep on the new Jay Rock album either — cop it over at iTunes immediately. Support rap music!

Yesterday we shared the news that Big Boi of OutKast will be joining Phantogram, a duo he discovered via a pop-up ad. The trio, known simply as Big Grams, will be dropping an EP on September 25th via Epic. It’ll feature Run the Jewels and Skrillex. And today they’re sharing “Fell in the Sun,” the first teaser from the project. It’s a fine number; there’s a funky backdrop with thick drums, and Big Boi rapping like Pimp C, kinda. The hook, sung by Sarah Barthel of Phantogram, is serviceable, but is ultimately missing a lil’ something extra to put it over for a win. Overall, this is a decent first showing from Big Grams. But, we’re all patiently waiting the arrival of the Run the Jewels cut, which should happen any day now. Peep “Fell in the Sun” after the jump.

Tinashe’s got a new album on the way later this year, it’s called Joyride. After dropping last year’s Aquarius, her debut album, she’s coming out with new music already. And today she’s sharing “Party Favor,” which is set to appear on Joyride. It features Young Thug, who just killed his feature on Travi$ Scott’s Rodeo, and is produced by Boi-1da. (The Thug song in question, “Maria I’m Drunk” also features Justin Bieber. It’s lit.) Check out Tinashe’s “Party Favors” after the jump.

dj-e-feezy-wolf-south-beach

DJ E-Feezy has a new mixtape out, it’s called The Wolf of South Beach, and it’s got some huge guest spots. One of those noteworthy guests is Lil Wayne. Remember him? Well, he’s on a track called “What You Sayin,” which is pretty cool. Wayne does his thing and it’s far from abysmal. The beat also thumps so if you’re into those sorts of things go ahead and press play. Check it out after the jump and head over to LiveMixtapes to cop DJ E-Feezy’s latest tape.

young-jeezy

By now you know that Jeezy is slated to drop a new project later this year. The yet-to-be-titled project will officially drop on November 13th and Jeezy’s keeping fans afloat with new heat. First there was the single, “GOD,” which was later remixed by arch nemesis and Trap God, Gucci Mane. And today Jeezy is looking to continue that streak of solid new material with “Pastor Young’s Letter,” a sermon of sorts over Zaytoven’s impressive piano-laden instrumental. (It’s worth noting that Zay also regularly plays the organ for his local church.) In case you were wondering where Jeezy would be heading with this forthcoming project, he delivers a spoken word here. Although it may be difficult to sit through and perhaps you’ll never listen to this track ever again, it’s worth giving a spin to get a good idea of Jeezy’s current headspace. After the jump.

Bona fide weed enthusiasts Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg, believe it or not, also love Instragram. Just like you. Crazy, right? Nah but seriously, Wiz has been on a roll lately (dude’s pretty much set for life with that Furious 7 song “See You Again”) and good looks for that. (Seriously, that song is huge.) But while I’m sure bro’s heart is in the rap game, he hasn’t pulled a quality project out of his bag of tricks (weed) in a minute. But give him a chance on “No Social Media” because at least uncle Snoop is in mix. And this isn’t quite “Trap Wiz” levels of cringe, either. After the jump!

rob-cash-new-york

Harlem’s Rob Cash teams up with Vado, Maino, Uncle Murda and Raekwon — who are all from New York, of course — for “Welcome to New York,” a track about New York. Duh. Check it out, it’s loaded with references to New York and there’s a lot of rapping too. Raekwon’s been kinda off his game lately, what with the uneven as hell F.I.L.A., but he’s been redeeming himself lately, and he’s particularly good here. Check out Rob Cash’s “Welcome to New York” after the jump.

Only posting to ask this question: Is Tyga the worst rapper of all-time? I mean that, in like, a nutshell. While he’s certainly not the worst at rapping or putting together lyrics, he is perhaps the worst, most vilified individual existing within the parameters of rap music. And even then he barely has anything worthwhile to contribute as a rapper. (Shut up, “Hookah” was a Young Thug track and you know it.) In fact, he accomplishes the bare minimum of what it means to be a rapper. Anyway, here’s a video for some song called “Rap $tar,” which you may or may not wanna listen to. I don’t even know — you decide for yourselves. After the jump…

soundz-mind-games

King Los is on a hot streak with his rhymes. Many sites and blogs have called King Los “one of the best lyricists in the game right now” and with his new cut, “Mind Game$” out now, Los continues to make that argument. Produced by Soundz, “Mind Game$” finds Los going over a haunting beat — delivering excellent wordplay and lyrics. The track is set to appear on producer Soundz’ forthcoming EP, so be on the lookout for that. In the meantime, go peep that new Los track, “Mind Game$” after the jump.

King Chip got fans. And they f**k with him heavy, too. Which is why it’s doubly disappointing that he hasn’t dropped his new album yet, despite the endless promises. Clevefornia is set to come out later this year, but in the meantime Chip’s holding his fans down with “Brand New H*es,” which may or may not be on that forthcoming album. Peep it after the jump to decide whether or not you’re f**king with it.

drake-tell-your-friends-remix-main-500x357

Drake dropped a new track! Drake dropped a new track! Sound the alarms. But I’m sure you’re hip to it and heard it already. In case you haven’t, the new track from Drizzy — resident rap slayer and venerable “6 God” — is entitled “Tell Your Friends,” and is actually a remix of The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness cut. Fitting, seeing as how both came up in Toronto and croon their little hearts out. (Also they’ve collaborated in the past, duh!) Anyways, check out Drake’s take on The Weeknd’s “Tell Your Friends” after the jump!

lil-durk-like-me-remix-500x500

Lil Durk is sitting on a hit with “Like Me” from his debut album, Remember My Name. The kid’s come a long, long way — from the streets of Chicago to the big stage — and it’s nice to see someone getting out of trouble. Unfortunately the album isn’t all that hot and I’m not feeling the new direction Durk has gone in. I prefer his work on Life Ain’t Joke or the first installment to his Signed to the Streets mixtape series. Either way, “Like Me” is a pleasant enough track, and the additions of Jeremih, Lil Wayne and bona fide superstar Fetty Wap are good to set the track over. Listen to the remix of Durk’s “Like Me” after the jump.

Project Pat and the homie Big Trill return with “Hold Me Down.” And much like their previous track, “Rollin’ Dank,” which had Fetty Wap, “Home Me Down” features Ca$h Out. The track, along with “Rollin’ Dank” is set to appear on the duo’s forthcoming project. Listen to “Hold Me Down” after the jump.

Jeezy recently released “GOD,” a track from his forthcoming project. And today we’re getting a Gucci Mane remix of the track. This doesn’t happen often, as the two do not see eye-to-eye (and haven’t since 2005), but this is a rare moment when they’re linked up together. Listen to Jeezy’s “GOD” featuring Gucci Mane after the jump.
