While you sit and wait for Gunplay to announce the official release date for his debut studio album Living Legend, the Miami rapper has been steady feeding the streets and blogs regardless.

When Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” music video went viral over the summer many detractors took aim at the striking similarities between the Brooklyn rapper’s aesthetic (both in sound and visuals) and the burgeoning Chicago drill scene. However, the negativity quickly died down, especially when nobody from Chicago’s scene seemed to take issue with it. Now, Chief Keef and Fredo Santana drop “Beetle Juice”, a track with a questionable lyric that appears to take a jab at Shmurda. “You know you ain’t catch no body bout a week ago,” raps Keef, which is a lyric directly lifted from Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” in which Shmurda mentions his pal Mitch catching a body. You decided for yourself if that is a diss, after the jump.
Both Vince Staples and Jay Electronica gave Common a helping hand during his AAHH! festival performance over the weekend and today Common delivers a remix of “Kingdom” featuring the two rappers. The original, which appears on Common’s excellent Nobody’s Smiling album, gets a nice boost of energy from the youthful Vince Staples and a solid verse from Jay Electronica. The track is said to be performed live at the BET Hip-Hop Awards on Oct. 14th during a tribute to the late Mike Brown. After the jump.

Yesterday Kendrick Lamar debuted a new track from his forthcoming studio album, entitled “i”. However, the song was met with a less than stellar reception with many fans unsure of the direction Kendrick was going on following the hugely successful good kid m.A.A.d city. Perhaps Kendrick felt the sting of the fans and media because he absolutely snaps on this Power 106 Los Angeles radio freestyle. Kendrick goes ham for roughly six straight minutes, freestyling over cuts from Jay Z and Nas. After the jump!
Cam’ron recently unleashed the full version of “Snapped” featuring 2 Chainz off of his forthcoming 1st of the Month after merely teasing it on Ghetto Heaven Vol. 1.

Buddy, one of hip-hop’s true potentials due to a degree of circumstances, unearths a track from 2011.
