With their collaborative album coming out later this year, Fat Joe and Remy Ma followed up their huge summer single “All The Way Up” with the single “Cookin”. It features fellow Bronxite French Montana and up-and-coming rapper RySoValid. This will be their second single off their upcoming joint album Platas O Plomo.
“All The Way Up” reached mass success: attaining platinum status with one million units sold, reaching #27 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and #9 on the US Hot Hip-Hop Chart. Jay Z blessed the song with a feature on it’s remix, earning the single even more air play on the radio. “Cookin” has the similar hard beat filled with trumpets and bass, which can now be expected out of a song featuring Fat Joe and French Montana. Fat Joe is looking to hit on two straight singles as he returns to hip-hop relevancy.

Check out his latest cut, “Just Bars Pt. 2” after the jump.
The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness is a smash hit, but we’re sure you already know that. The album — and its string of hit singles — is inescapable, which would explain why rapper Dave East felt it was necessary to chime in and remix one of its biggest and catchiest songs, “Tell Your Friends.” Fresh off of “Harder Than Them” with Maino and Uncle Murda, Dave East has a few things to tell your friends. Listen after the jump.

The track is set to appear on Maino and Murda’s joint project, Yellow Tape, which is dropping December 4th. Check out its offering, “Thugz Cry” after the jump.

Last month, it was reported that Wu-Tang Clan’s one-of-a-kind album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, had been sold for “millions.” Bloomberg has revealed the buyer’s identity: Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO Martin Shkreli.
