Lil Herb is undoubtedly one of the most promising young talents coming out of Chicago’s drill movement and if you thought his Welcome to Fazoland was a fluke Herb returns with his sophomore mixtape Ball Like I’m Kobe. Herb debuts “Frankie Lymon”, the first single off Ball Like I’m Kobe. Listen after the jump.
By now hip-hop heads are hip to the fact that 16-year-old Jaden Smith is actually a dope kid with some pretty serious rap potential. After dropping an unexpectedly ill track “Trophy” he followed that up with some more heat with “Fast”. As if that wasn’t enough Jaden goes and continues his musical streak by rapping over Pink Floyd. No, not a Pink Floyd sample. An actual Pink Floyd track. On his new cut “Melancholy” Jaden raps over Pink Floyd’s 1973 song “Breathe” and it works out for the kid. Jaden even delivers some hilarious self-deprecating bars: “Oh you rappin’ on this? I bet you thought that you would body this/ You messin’ up a classic, how you did with The Karate Kid“. That’s just awesome. Listen to the new Jaden Smith track after the jump.
Joe Budden drops “Devil In My Room” featuring Slaughterhouse mate Crooked I. The track is produced by The Darknight and 8Bars. And though Joe Budden is prepping the release of his forthcoming album Some Love Lost “Devil In My Room” will not be on it. Listen after the jump.
Action Bronson is a legend, let that be known. When it’s all said and done, we shall look back to our glorious 2010s, and Bronsolino will be dubbed thee noblest G in the whole game. The people love Bronson, they show Bronson love, and Bronson always loves back. This sentiment couldn’t be more evident than in his decorated Munchies series “F*ck, That’s Delicious” which chronicles Action Bronson enjoying the fruits of labor (ie: stuffing his face with greasy foods, smoking copious amounts of marijuana, and hanging out with the people of this amazing world we live in). However, if there’s one demographic that’s hard to please it’s those mysterious, anonymous internet dwellers. In this video Mr. Wonderful himself tackles some YouTube comments left on his psychedelic “Easy Rider” music video. After the jump!
Mick Jenkins and Supa BWE drop the music video for “Treat Me”, a visual on the issue of racial discrimination. In the video, which utilizes a split screen, we are given a day in the life of both Mick Jenkins and Supa BWE. In Mick Jenkins’ portion of the video we see a young black male who is severely mistreated by authority on the basis of his skin tone. While on the other side of the spectrum, we see Supa BWE who is treated as though he’s Caucasian because of his fairer complexion. Check out the video after the jump.
Here’s a welcome collaboration: Kool G Rap and Guilty Simpson. When you look at the two rappers, on paper, this collaboration makes all the perfect sense. You’ve got a legend in the game in G Rap, who has put out hardcore hip-hop classics (Road to the Riches, Wanted: Dead or Alive, Live and Let Die) and Guilty Simpson, a gruff and tough Detroit rapper with all the sensibilities that make for a master ghetto storyteller. Pinning G Rap and Guilty Simpson together is a match made in heaven and their track “Chess Never Checkers” is a solid cut in this potential canon. Listen after the jump.
It’s been a good minute since we’ve heard anything from Yung Joc. The once striving Bad Boy artist seemed to have reached his creative peek back in 2007 with the Hustlenomics album. And it’s interesting to note that during Joc’s time on top he had a hit single with one T-Pain entitled “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” which brings us 2014 and Joc has reunited with T-Pain for “Features”. Is this a hint that Joc is looking to regain his throne? We’re not entirely too sure about that but peep the video after the jump to decide for yourselves.
The Game’s highly-anticipated Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf is set to drop on Oct. 14th and the Compton rapper has already previewed four tracks in “F*ck Yo Feelings,” “Black On Black,” “Really”, and “Or Nah”. And judging by those four drops, it’s not only looking to be a feature heavy affair but also grim and aggressive, which is precisely The Game everyone wants and loves. And to reassure fans of the aforementioned Game, he drops “Hit Em Hard” featuring Bobby Shmurda, Freddie Gibbs and Skeme. Check it out after the jump.
Rich Homie Quan drops the video for “Blah Blah Blah”, a track that first appeared on his breakout mixtape from 2013, I Promise I Will Never Stop Going In. The video finds Quan flexin’ alongside Young Thug and Birdman. Check out the video after the jump.

T.I.’s working relationship with Pharrell dates back to Tip’s I’m Serious days; for those of you not hip to the game, that’s 2001. The two have remained close and any time T.I.’s got a new album cooking you better believe Pharrell will be there either providing Tip with the hook, the chorus, a verse, or production. Hell, sometimes he’ll gift Tip with all four! And for T.I.’s forthcoming studio album Paperwork the two reunite once again. Pharrell joins Tip for “Paperwork” and it’s a scorcher. Listen after the jump.

Don Logan is giving fans a treat today with “Jumpin’ Off Da Beam” featuring an NYC OG N.O.R.E. You can listen to the track after the jump.
