Tip drops another visual from his Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head LP, giving us the video for “The Way We Ride,” one of the album’s most underrated cuts. Directed by PhillyFlyBoy.
Nayvadius and Ciara will officially be spending their ‘future’ together. Future Hendrix apparently popped the question with a 15-carat ring this weekend in New York, where Cici was celebrating her 28th birthday. No wedding date has been set yet for the couple.
We were waiting on Hov to make a statement to the press about his ill-timed deal with Barney New York for their holiday collection, as the clothing outlet has fought allegations of racist practices in its stores. Didn’t have to wait very long as Mr. Carter released a statement via his Life and Times outlet. But that wasn’t all. He contacted us with an exclusive freestyle broaching the topics at hand. Full lyrics after the jump. (more…)
Vic Mensa gives an inside look into the production of the INNANETAPE.
Nipsey Hussle drops more gangsta knowledge jewels on the masses in this lengthy interview with Sway.
ScHoolboy Q releases the video for his latest single, which is anything but what the title suggests. Oxymoron has been pushed back to 2014, and may even get pushed back further if Q keeps dropping duds like these.
Is there anything that the cast alumni from “The Wire” can’t do? First, they appear in the indie comedy smash Newlyweeds (check your local theaters for info). Then, cast stand-out Tristan Wilds a.k.a. Mack Wilds has a hit with “Own It” trotting all over the charts. Here, he performs an album cut “U Can Cry To Me,” which features Staten Island cohort Raekwon. Is The Chef on everything right now or what? He’s on his ’05 Ghostface sh*t.
Off Rubber Souls, this video knocks as does the beat, produced by 6th Sense. Sleeper album of the fall so far.
This that late-night Williamsburg bridge, underneath the J line, stopping at the Dominican buffet groove. eXquire tells a love story in five minutes, the exact way to do it.
Impromptu freestyle session breaks out with A$AP Rocky rapping alongside Kosha Dillz and Matisyahu on the beatbox. Never underestimate this art form.
Joey Bad offers this bonus cut “My Yout” from his soon-to-drop Summer Knights EP. It sounds like he’s had Distant Relatives and The Best Of Stephen Marley playing on repeat in the headphones. Not bad and certainly a step out of the boom-bap area where he got cozy for a while. Nice to hear the Pro Era leader going for uptempo rhythms.
Lil Herb hangs on the block and drops a new clip for “Control Me,” directed by HiDef. Herb’s Welcome To Fazoland: The Movie project is on the way.
Killer Mike and El-P drop a visual for “Get It,” one of the strongest tracks off their Run The Jewels project. The video contains a bunch of footage from the duo’s North American tour.
Happy Birthday Aubrey. Or as they say in Yiddish, A freilekhn geburtstog! Or something like that. The boy from Toronto turns 27 today. We figured, what better way to celebrate the 27th anniversary of Drake’s birth than to reflect on his career-long body of work? From Comeback Season to Nothing Was The Same, we compiled (at least what we think are) the 27 strongest tracks from his catalogue. (more…)
