When 2 Chainz isn’t busy making intelligent arguments for the legalization of marijuana he’s maintaining his career as a rapper. And on this new track he’s also keeping it 100. Cap1, Skooly, Short Dawg, and Kaleb join Mr. Chainz for “Keep It 100″ from his T.R.U. Jack City mixtape. Listen after the jump.
Cassidy and Murda Mook have had an illustrious career in hip-hop, primarily in the battle circuit. The two are sworn adversaries and have traded blows for years but on the Dolla Bill Kidz produced “Boyz In the Hood” we find Cass and Mook in a rare side-by-side moment. Listen to “Boyz In the Hood” after the jump.
Joey Bada$$’ debut full length studio album B4.DA.$$ is officially out now and to celebrate the release (as well as his birthday) he is dropping a freebie with “Born Day (AquariUS).” The track finds Joey going off, sounding jubilant and uplifted. Produced by frequent collaborator Statik Selektah “Born Day (AquariUS)” will not be on B4.DA.$$ but it is certainly worthy of a listen. Check it out after the jump.
Chapel Hill’s SkyBlew will be releasing a new mixtape in 2015, Jazz For Autumn Kismet. And Sky is sharing the first single, “The Quest for Dreams” featuring Faith Elle. Listen to “The Quest for Dreams” after the jump and stay tuned for Jazz For Autumn Kismet coming soon.
An unlikely feature for sure, Jeremih recruits man-of-the-hour J. Cole for his new single “Planes.” Hot off the success of his DJ Mustard-produced “Don’t Tell Em” (which now also has an official music video) Jeremih returns with “Planes” a track that will potentially be on his forthcoming, highly-anticipated Late Nights album. And although J. Cole is on “Planes” rumor has it that the feature spot initially belonged to Chance the Rapper. Do you think J. Cole fits here or would you rather have had Chance? You be the judge after the jump.
Stalley teams up with a slew of West Coast superstars for a remix of his Ohio cut “Always Into Something.” Stalley is joined by Ty Dolla $ign, Casey Veggies and Kurupt for the remix of “Always Into Something” which is set to appear on the L.A. Leakers’ upcoming 2015 Draft Picks project dropping January 22. Listen after the jump.
In case you haven’t heard, The Diplomats are back. The return of OG Dipset members Jim Jones, Freekey Zeeky, and Juelz Santana together so far has been promising with the Harlem squadron dropping the awesome “Have My Money” loosie and now a gloomy, aggressive, and downright murderous freestyle over The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Victory.” Many have interpreted the lyrics as shots at JAY Z and his website, Life + Times. Listen to The Diplomats’ “Victory” freestyle after the jump.
“No homo but my blunt look like a d**k” utters Young Thug on “Friend of Scotty” the latest leaked cut from the New Atlanta weirdo. And frankly this may be the strangest, most bizarre track from Thugger Thugger we’ve heard yet. Which I know, in retrospect, may seem like a stretch in a catalog consisting of “Miss U,” “Picacho,” “Lifestyle,” and “Ain’t Trippin'” to name just a few. But seriously, “Friend of Scotty” has the aforementioned blunt to penis analogy as well as talk of pizza pies and their subsequent toppings. Anyway, listen for yourself after the jump.
The wait is finally coming to an end as Joey Bada$$’ much anticipated debut album B4.DA.$$ is set to drop Tuesday (January 20th) and Joey has already shared a few tracks from the album in “No. 99″ and “On and On.” Now he’s sharing one with fellow New Yorker (who also has an album on the way) Action Bronson. In addition to having a superstar feature in Bronson “Run Up on Ya” features production from the always great Statik Selektah. Listen to “Run Up on Ya” after the jump.
Future continues his streak of dropping free material after his return to the mixtape circuit in late 2014 with Monster. Now he teams up with fellow Atlantan, one of the city’s most successful producers, Zaytoven. Beast Mode finds Future rapping with little help from others (there is only two features in Young Scooter and Juvenile). Safe to say the current streak Future is on is a welcome return to form for the autotune connoisseur. Stream and download Future and Zaytoven’s Beast Mode EP after the jump.
With Action Bronson’s debut album Mr. Wonderful on the way (due out March) and the Queens rapper already sharing the 40 produced “Actin’ Crazy” he stops by Funkmaster Flex for an exclusive, out of this world freestyle. Needless to say, Bronson spazzed over Prodigy’s “Keep It Thoro.” Check out Action Bronson’s Funkmaster Flex freestyle after the jump!
