Tony Yayo has been dropping some dope tracks where he’s going over vintage cuts. He’s went off on Eric B. & Rakim’s seminal cut “Paid In Full,” snapped on Main Source’s “Looking Out the Front Door” beat and most recently murked a Black Moon stomper. Here, on this latest effort, Yayo goes in on Channel Live’s “Mad Izm” track. Hear it only after the jump.
Future’s recent mixtape run has been much praised and rightfully so. Monster, Beast Mode and the recent 56 Nights are all terrific projects and each has reinstated much faith in fans. And after the unexpected success of his Monster cut “Fuck Up Some Commas” Future returns with the visuals for his 56 Nights cut “March Madness.” Contrary to the song’s title it’s not about basketball but police brutality and coping through all the “madness.” Check it out after the jump.
DJ Kay Slay has a new mixtape on the way entitled The Industry Purge and he’s teasing the project with some serious heat. “Memories,” a track which is set to appear on the forthcoming mixtape (dropping later tonight, so keep your ears open) features some heavy hitters in Young Buck, Freeway and Fame. In case you didn’t know, that’s Young Buck of G-Unit, the infamous Philly freestyle legend Freeway and one-half of the legendary M.O.P. You know, no big deal. Listen to “Memories” after the jump.
A lot of rare Kanye West stuff is being unearthed as of late. First we have a Kendrick Lamar remix of “All Day” and now we’re being treated to a sneak peek of ‘Ye’s verse on Vic Mensa’s “U Mad” track. This track has been circulating for the last month or so, mostly byway of Vic Mensa’s live performances. But now we have Kanye’s full verse! You can check it out after the jump. As the kids say: it’s hard.
Kanye West dropped his street banger “All Day” in spectacular fashion (at the BRIT Awards while surrounded by mad goons dressed in all black and flamethrowers) and it appears as though one Kendrick Lamar will be appearing on the remix of the track. That’s right, the To Pimp a Butterfly emcee is on the remix of ‘Ye’s “All Day.” No word as to when the official, version drops but we’re guessing it’s just gonna drop outta nowhere — given the latest music release trends of the past couple years. You can check out a snippet below, which contains a lyrics from Kendrick that goes: “Chi-Town, we play for the free base/These days don’t believe what police say/DJs and the b-boys rush it.” Get at it!
Migos (Quavo, Offset, Takeoff) are teasing the release of their forthcoming debut full length album (hot off dropping consistent mixtape after consistent mixtape — not to mention their hit single “Versace” was certainly no “one hit wonder”) which arrives June 16th. They’ve already shared one single in “One Time” (get at it here) and by the looks of this new loosie entitled “Stankin'” it’s staying that way for the time being. The new cut features one time (no pun intended) Atlanta frontrunner Trinidad James. Sadly, he’s fallen onto some hard times as far as his relevance in the game. Anyway, get at the new Migos track after the jump!
It’s been quite some time since O.T. Geneasis released his breakout track “CoCo” and although the rapper has kept relatively quiet since then he’s only now releasing the highly-anticipated followup in “The Flyest.” The track takes on a similar route as “CoCo” so there’s good chance you will be hearing this one on the radio soon enough. Check out the new O.T. Genasis cut after the jump.

Cole & Dre. Check out the full interview with The Breakfast Club after the jump.
With Lil Wayne, presumably Drake and Nicki Minaj and Rich Homie Quan now out it looks as if Birdman’s fullest attention is on New Atlanta’s superstar Young Thug. Thugger will be releasing Carter 6 later this year and with “Halftime,” “Beat It” and “Just Might Be” out the album is shaping out to be pretty dope thus far. And here Thugger is sharing “Check” another track that is said to appear on the forthcoming debut album.
