With Smoke DZA and Pete Rock’s full-length collabo, Don’t Smoke Rock, dropping tomorrow, the New York duo has released a new visual via Complex. The site also premiered an exclusive stream of the album.
“Everyone talkin’ like I’m Bryce Harper,” raps Wale on his newest cut, “MVP (Bryce Harper)” — a track that has the DMV rapper comparing himself to MLB’s 2015 MVP Bryce Harper. And because Harper plays for Wale’s Washington Nationals, the comparison is only more fitting. Listen after the jump.
Whether you’re a fan of Wale or simply detest him, the visuals for “The Bloom” will surely light up your boring ass Tuesday. It’s brutally hot out here in NYC, but the video for “The Bloom” provides a soothing relief from the heatwave — it’s the kinda visual aloe vera you need for a day like this. Ironic, you know, what with the video taking place in a sunny location. But hey, it looks tropical and chill, rather than humid and sticky. Also, there are gorgeous women. So, enjoy. After the jump.
Summertime songs keep on keeping on despite the season coming to a close. Wale joins Chromeo for an updated rendition of DJ Cassidy’s bubbly “Future Is Mine” cut. The track will appear on Cassidy’s forthcoming album, which is also rumored to have features from names like Usher and R. Kelly — damn! Check out “Future Is Mine” after the jump.
Oh it’s Holiday season! I’m a huge fan of rap mixtapes and an even bigger fan of Gucci Mane, which is why I suppose DJ Holiday is my preferred DJ of choice. Well, at least spanning roughly 2008-2012. Don’t get me wrong, DJ Drama was dope, too, and Gucci even appeared on a few of Drama’s tapes (The Burrrprint being the best of their collaborations.) But I don’t know, I prefer Holiday over all other mixtape DJs out there. He’s an OG at the game, which is why his new mixtape is entitled God Bless the Mixtape, and houses some huge features. Like this one, “Let Me at Em,” finding DJ Holiday recruiting three big names. Problem, French Montana and Wale all join Holiday for “Let Me at Em” a track that will appear on the forthcoming God Bless the Mixtape. Listen after the jump.
Wale’s highly-anticipated fourth studio album The Album About Nothing hits stores four days from now! And today a new track has been leaked onto the world wide web.

Project Pat shows his age with his new single “Twerk It”, a song about a cultural trend that is on its way out the door. Pat, who is undoubtedly an OG in the rap game, is struggling to find a groove in the 2010s but recruiting the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Wiz Khalifa, and Wale helps. Even if just a little. Listen after the jump.
MMG is Rick Ross’s solid contribution to the rap game because it extends the power of his influence to recruit other great street artists to urban radio rotation. His two marquee acts are in a feud that Meek Mill set off on social media by calling Wale corny. Check the tweets after the jump.
