New Music: Rick Ross – “Jumpman”

 |  October 30, 2015


It was a matter of time until Rick Ross jumped on that Drake and Future “Jumpman” joint, so here it is. The track, which is currently No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, has been making steady moves across the hip-hop community, as well as remixed and freestyled over quite a bit — especially within the last two weeks. And naturally we’re getting a Rozay treatment of the buzzing single from What a Time to Be Alive. After rocking with Post Malone’s “White Iverson”, Future’s “Stick Talk”, and even Adele’s “Hello”, it’s evident that Rick Ross has his ears to good tunes. Listen to Rozay’s latest take — “Jumpman” — after the jump.

The reclusive Jeremih has come out of the shadows today, revealing not one, but two new tracks. It must be a beautiful day wherever Jeremih is today. To be treated to a pair of Jeremih songs in a single day seems improbable, and not at all hyperbolic — this is the guy who hasn’t released a full length project since 2012 with his excellent Late Nights With Jeremih mixtape. Add in one cup of hit single (2014’s “Don’t Tell Em”) and a dash of album anticipation (Late Nights, his first since 2010) and Jeremih has quickly generated a lot of hype. Here he’s got Future and Big Sean to help give “Royalty” that extra oomph. It’s a solid track, and along with “Oui” we’re also hyped for the new Jeremih album here at iHipHop. Although it’ll be some time until there’s new info for Late Nights, we have “Royalty” to hold us over — after the jump!

Back in August, Fabolous released a loosie track — entitled ”Gone for the Winter” — and he’s kept quiet since. Fittingly, just as the temperature’s rising, Fab is back with the heat the fans desperately needed. Teaming up with Atlanta’s Rich Homie Quan, Fabolous goes full Dead Presidents in the visuals for ”We Good” — a track that first appeared on his Young OG Project last year. Additionally, the grim visuals (featuring face paint and shootouts) are apt for Halloween, which is tomorrow! Fab has also teased at the notion of dropping a new project, Summertime Shootout, but we’ve yet to hear anything from that. In the meantime, check out Fabolous’ ”We Good” video featuring Rich Homie Quan after the jump.

Last month, 9th Wonder and Talib Kweli — under the pseudonym Indie 500 — were graciously joined by West Coasters Problem and Bad Lucc. Today, they’re sharing the powerful visuals from their latest track, ”Which Side Are You On”, featuring another pair of guests in Tef Poe and Kendra Ross. Furthermore, Kweli revealed the concept behind ”Which Side Are You On”, as well as it’s moving video. Kweli says the song ”pays homage to those murdered by the police over the past year and those who have taken a stand” and that the video — which contains footage from the Ferguson Rocks and Ferguson Is Everywhere fundraiser — features Tom Morello, Bun B, Common, Outernational, Cornel West, Pharoahe Monch, Jasiri X, M-1 of dead prez and K’Valentine all of whom ”participated in the August concerts”. You may hit the play button on ”Which Side Are You On” after the jump.

With Halloween just around the corner, rap music is already preparing itself for the festivities. Rightfully so, it’s a season that’s ripe for conceptually interesting rap music. There’s even an entire subgenre within rap which, lest we forget, brazenly deals with the macabre. Although Sheek Louch makes rap music far from the ”horrorcore” style, his latest cut, ”Sucka Free” — featuring fellow D-Block rapper Jadakiss, no less — is a clinical bloodbath. Sheek makes work of the song, which is backed by a jagged and distorted beat. Additionally, Jadakiss’ guest spot — while perfectly adequate — discovers the Brooklyn emcee getting into holiday season early with an equally wicked verse. Check out Sheek Louch’s ”Sucka Free” from his forthcoming Gorillaween mixtape dropping October 31st.

Kendrick Lamar continues sharing the visuals from his excellent sophomore album, To Pimp a Butterfly. After sharing ”i”, ”King Kunta”, ”Alright”, and ”For Free? (Interlude)”, he returns with an epic video treatment for ”These Walls”, which has been accurately subtlted as ”A Black Comedy” — it’s directed by Colin Tilley & the Little Homies, and stars comedian Corey Holcolmb and actor Terry Crews. Both Kendrick and Crews ”hit the quan”, as well. Worthy of your eight minutes of the day — check it out after the jump.

R. Kelly is linking up with two star-studden names in music for a cut from his new album, Buffet. ”Switch Up”, the latest offering from Kelly’s forthcoming studio album — his thirteenth overall — features Lil Wayne and Jeremih, both who stop-by to assist the R&B legend. Check out ”Switch Up” from R. Kelly after the jump, and mark your calendars for Buffet, dropping November 20th.

After sharing his take on Post Malone’s ”White Iverson” yesterday, Rick Ross returns with something a little bit more ”form fitting”, so to speak. Future, whose Monster mixtape turns one today (read a retrospective on it here), dropped his excellent DS2 album over the summer, which has apparently prompted Rozay to jump on one of its standout tracks, ”Stick Talk”. The track finds Rozay comfortably seated in the cockpit, and spitting bars over the high-energy Southside production. Additionally, Ross will be dropping his own album, Black Market, shortly. In the meantime, give his take on Future’s ”Stick Talk” after the jump.

Chance the Rapper is keeping active, to say the least. Fresh off a critically-acclaimed mixtape and tour, the Chicago spitter is sharing a brand new song. Of course, being the unpredictable character that he is, Chance’s new song has a bit of a backstory. Last week, Chance praised one Stephen Colbert — yes, the talk show host — for his exceptional musical chops (calling him ”amazing”, in the process), and sharing little else about a ”secret song” between the two. And after his performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night (you may watch the performance here), Chance is wasting no time in sharing the new track. In addition to featuring Saba on the mic, ”Angels” is written and performed by Chance, Lido, Peter Cottontale, Nate Fox, and Donnie Trumpet (for The Social Experiment) — sorry, no Stephen Colbert on an MPC here, folks. Check out the new Chance the Rapper track, ”Angels”, after the jump. Also, the track is available for free through iTunes — get it here!

If there’s an unsung hero award in rap, then Big K.R.I.T. is the unanimous winner for 2015. He’s concocted an outstanding — also surprisingly slept on — catalog of music for 2015. And hot off the heels of his DJ Drama-hosted mixtape It’s Better This Way, this Mississippi workhorse links up with Rapsody for ”Guillotine Flow”, which has the legendary 9th Wonder handling the production. Backed by Wonder’s gorgeous percussion and strings, K.R.I.T. goes off with an inspiring delivery — spitting bars and swagging the beat. Check out Big K.R.I.T. connect with Rapsody and 9th Wonder for ”Guillotine Flow” after the jump.

French Montana and Fetty Wap are bringing their respective East Coast sensibilities to their Coke Zoo — a collaborative mixtape due out October 27th. French Montana is coming off his Casino Life 2 mixtape, as well as hit single ”Off the Rip”, while Fetty Wap is still basking in the success of hit singles ”Trap Queen”, ”679”, ”My Way”, and ”Again”. In addition to his chart-topping singles, Fetty recently released his self-titled debut album, which topped the Billboard Hot 200 for first week album sales. Nevertheless, this seemingly unlikely pairing of French and Fetty are uniting the East Coast with Coke Zoo, a thirteen track mixtape — with five tracks featuring both rappers — that has some star-studded features along the way. That’s the tracklist above, but you may also find ”First Time”, the tape’s first offering (featuring Puff Daddy talking smack), after the jump.
