Eminem recently stopped by Sway in the Morning to help promote the film Southpaw, which hits theaters tomorrow. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal and 50 Cent. It is centered around a boxer who is looking to regain his boxing skills and life after some serious pitfalls. Eminem is the curator of the film’s soundtrack. Along with promoting the film Em also chatted it up with Sway and delivered a monstrous, brutal 8-minute freestyle. You can check that out after the jump because you know you wanna.

Janet Jackson is prepping her big comeback and she’s already dropped a solid number with “No Sleep.” J. Cole, the rapper who could, is joining Janet for the official remix of the track. “No Sleep” is Janet Jackson’s first song in well over five years so it’s pretty crazy and actually kind of cool that Cole is on the remix. Check it out after the jump, folks.

Lil Uzi Vert, the young Philadelphia rapper, recently linked up with Lil Herb on “On My Line,” and now he’s back with some new ish. Once again the artwork is sick and the track’s production is ill. “All Night” features production from Cardo, who serves up some symphonic instrumental that is quite gorgeous and even haunting. Check out the new Uzi Vert cut after the jump.

Jay Elec, Jay Elec, Jay Elec — where to begin? How about the fact that this dude has been teasing at new music for like — I don’t even know — almost a decade now? He’s also (reportedly) got some documentary film in the works, which is probably never gonna see the light of day. And now we’ve got a new, well, leaked track from Jay Electronica entitled “Man Up.” Apparently this track dates back to George W. Bush’s first term in office, which would mean somewhere between the years 2001-2005. The track is also produced by Jay Elec. Listen to the leaked track, “Man Up,” after the jump.

With a string of freestyles under his belt, Carol City Florida rapper Gunplay will finally be dropping his long-awaited debut album, Living Legend, later this month.

Check out Gunplay’s freestyle over a killer UGK track after the jump. Oh, and don’t forget to cop that Living Legend album.

Travis Barker, drummer for pop punk band Blink-182, is perhaps the last name you’d think you’d find on a hip hop based website. But in all honesty the dude has a passion for music and has been known to post covers of popular rap songs. He’s done everything from Soulja Boy’s 2007 hit “Crank That” to Eminem’s “3am.” And he’s even released a full length album with all the tracks having a rapper as a guest feature — there was Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Swizz Beatz & Game — and that was only on one song. Crazy. And here he’s teaming up with Kid Ink, Ty Dolla $ign, IAMSU!, and Tyga for “100.” Check it after the jump.

When Royce isn’t killing it with his solo work or collaborating with fellow Detroit rapper and overall cultural icon, Eminem, under the Bad Meets Evil moniker, he’s murking all these features. Seriously, Royce is perhaps one of the only known rappers in the game who is also, simultaneously, one of the most underrated out. Dude is a serious grinder, too, just peep this feature on Horseshoe Gang’s “F.O.E.” cut where Royce spits some realness about family over everything. Check out Horseshoe Gang’s “F.O.E.” after the jump and don’t forget to get their latest EP, Knocking on Raps Door, which is currently up for pre-order.

Along with all the details for his forthcoming Wave[s], Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins has shared “Get Up Get Down”, a track featuring production by ThemPeople and Stefan Ponce. The cut has an old-school feel and is definitely a solid jam filled with the perfect summertime vibes (no offense Vince) with an insanely low rumbling bass halfway through. But don’t fret lyric junkies, Jenkins spits that heat: “Isn’t it ironic/ Got ’em hooked on phonics/ Mama used to think it was just chronic/ It was all bad.” Fire! Peep that new new from Mick Jenkins after the jump.

So I just read on Miss Info that Cassidy is now officially a man of God and plans to release an album consisting entirely of family-oriented jams? What? Is this April 1st? What is going on here? This is especially perplexing giving his recent output containing some, well, less than “positive” family-friendly vibes. Now Cass is sharing another street rap track in “Running Out of Patience,” which is actually kinda dope. Peep it after the jump!
