tinashe-sway

Make no mistake, Tinashe is a burgeoning star in today’s music industry. But she’s also a burgeoning star with a wide range of talents. Don’t believe me? Well, on top of being one of the best (and dare I say underrated) contemporary R&B singer-songwriters, she can also hold her own when it comes to this rap thing, too. Don’t believe me? Tinashe recently stopped by Sway in the Morning to discuss her tour with Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry in Latin America, but was eventually put on the spot by Sway himself to deliver a freestyle. Tinashe, being a woman of her word, did indeed kick a freestyle — albeit with a hint of singing thrown in — with a quality outcome. Don’t believe me? Hit the play button after the jump.

Lil B, the prolific Berkeley, CA rapper, is looking to drop his latest mixtape Thugged Out Pissed Out shortly (first since collaborating with Chance the Rapper back in August), and he’s already sharing its first offering in a bit of urban menace many have forgotten existed within The BasedGod’s mutated rap DNA. The track–along with a standard DIY music video for YouTube–finds Lil B going over an eerie beat, rapping about “the underworld” which, according to Lil B, he was “raised up” in. Additionally, Lil B directly acknowledges chart-topping Canadian recording artist The Weeknd (whose stock only continues to rise) with lyrics like “Call me Lil Bars with the XO Bars/ Saying fuck The Weeknd, I can’t sing that soft”, and “A lot of suckas fake, so I can’t respect it/ Fuck The Weeknd, put that on record,” rapped repeatedly–apparently BasedGod really doesn’t like the singer-songwriter. Curious? Check out Lil B’s “4 Tha Record” after the jump, and stay tuned for his forthcoming Thugged Out Pissed Out mixtape.

Back in August, Fabolous released a loosie track — entitled ”Gone for the Winter” — and he’s kept quiet since.

Teaming up with Atlanta’s Rich Homie Quan, Fabolous goes full Dead Presidents in the visuals for ”We Good” — a track that first appeared on his Young OG Project last year. Additionally, the grim visuals (featuring face paint and shootouts) are apt for Halloween, which is tomorrow! Fab has also teased at the notion of dropping a new project, Summertime Shootout, but we’ve yet to hear anything from that. In the meantime, check out Fabolous’ ”We Good” video featuring Rich Homie Quan after the jump.
