A lot has been happening for the 22-year-old Chicago emcee as of late. For starters Vic Mensa performed with Kanye West on Saturday Night Live, delivering a hook on ‘Ye’s forthcoming “Wolves” track (set to appear on So Help Me God) followed by some turned up live performances with the man. The live performances were for a track entitled “U Mad,” which recently got released as a single. In addition, Mensa also signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation recording label. That’s huge. So, yeah, evidently Mensa is doing quite well for himself on the mainstream end right now. Mensa also stopped by to team up with LA Leakers for an exclusive freestyle over Future’s anthemic Monster cut “Commas.” Check it out after the jump!

The mysterious Jay Electronica has shared a new track entitled “Road to Perdition.” The song features a sample of Jay-Z’s “Success” from his 2007 album American Gangster. No word as to whether or not this track will appear on a new Jay Electronica project, which has been in limbo since forever ago. 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.

With his new album 2014 Forest Hills Drive in stores now (stream it in full here) J. Cole appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman last night (Dec. 10th) to deliver an emotionally-charged performance of his track “Be Free.” The song, which Cole released back in August and doesn’t appear on his new album, is a tribute to Mike Brown and Eric Garner, two men who were killed in the hands of police. 2014 Forest Hills Drive is expected to sell 320-350k in its first week, but that isn’t even on J. Cole’s mind at the moment. “Album in stores now. 2014 Forest Hills Drive. No thank you on projections. Just did Letterman, I’ll never forget it. Thank you God,” he tweeted. Check out Cole’s performance on Letterman after the jump.

Sorry, no new material here. The highly reclusive Jay Electronica may not be dropping new music any time (though he promised… on many occasions) but he is starring in an upcoming film. The film in question, Into the Light, directed by Jason Goldwatch and produced by Mass Appeal, will be released in 2015 and is of the experimental variety. Meaning the plot synopsis isn’t quite clear, but what really is with Jay Elec nowadays? Watch the trailer for Into the Light after the jump.

J. Cole stopped by Harvard University today to drop some knowledge on a lecture hall full of Ivy Leaguers.  In somewhat of an open forum lecture, entitled “The Next Move: A Conversation with J. Cole,” the Roc Nation artist discussed his influences, his family’s support of his rap career, and how he rocked his first show at the age of 14.  This piece definitely gives us some insight on J. Cole, but it can really compare to the brilliance of Lil B’s NYU lecture.  Hit the jump for the full video.
