Boi-1da, The Maven Boys and Just Blaze form an all-star production team for “Psychopath Killer”, a track off the upcoming Shady XV compilation out on Monday (November 24th). On “Psychopath Killer” Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf are joined by Eminem. Needless to say everyone who contributes a verse delivers here. Listen after the jump!
Crooked I drops a gem in “Freestlin’ Under Oath”, the first official offering from his forthcoming new mixtape, Sex, Money and Hip-Hop, which is set to drop on December 16th. Listen after the jump.
Last year footage surfaced of Freddie Gibbs and Mike Dean working “in the lab” and ever since then very little additional information has been given regarding that session. Now Gangsta Gibbs has shared a new track entitled “Sellin’ Dope” which gives artist credit to Mike Dean. Our guess is Mike Dean, who is a hip-hop producer and certainly no rapper (best known for working with Kanye West), produced the cut. The track is absolutely menacing, both in production and in overall concept/theme as Dean’s ominous ghastly beat perfectly suits Gibbs’ aggressive flow and hyper-realistic subject matter (yes, sellin’ dope). The track will appear on the Grand Theft Auto V next-gen iteration. Listen after the jump!
When Hudson Mohawke teased the feature heavy version of his popular electronic instrumental banger “Chimes” fans have been thirsty for it ever since. And now, after dropping the Chimes EP earlier this year, Hudson is finally giving hip-hop heads the treat they’ve been waiting for. As promised “Chimes” features many of today’s hip-hop all-stars (Future, French Montana, Pusha T, and Travi$ Scott) contributing to the instrumental banger. Future with the crooning hook, French and Pusha with quick verses, and Travi$ doing… something only Travi$ can do. Listen after the jump.
The release date for Wu-Tang Clan’s first studio album in almost seven years is quickly approaching and after dropping the track “Ruckus In B Minor” earlier this month the Clan is back in the front with “Necklace”. The cut features verses from Ghostface Killah, Cappadonna, Raekwon, and GZA with production that will surely have you thinking Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Classic ish. After the jump!
GZA The Genius of the Wu-Tang Clan (who have an album coming out December 9th) joins singer/songwriter Hanni El Khatib for a remix of “Moonight” from his forthcoming album due out in 2015. Check it out after the jump.
Pusha season approaching! After dropping his stellar debut full length My Name Is My Name, Virginia’s number one dope boy spitter Pusha Ton begins rolling out his King Push campaign. And today we are grateful to receive “Lunch Money”, a bombastic and downright straight outta left-field (even more so than last year’s insane “Numbers on the Board”? Maybe) cut produced by the always unpredictable Kanye West. While Pusha does his thing, spitting hot fire it’s truly Yeezus’ production that stands out as the reason you’ll be listening to this one. ‘Ye’s beat here is equipped with unorthodox, disorienting sounds, but all those outrageous nuances are built around a very funky pulse. Listen after the jump.
G-Unit teams up for “Bring My Bottles”. Young Buck is joined by 50 Cent and Tony Yayo for the Swiff D produced track. The cut is vintage G-Unit, as the trio revisits their Beg for Mercy track. Listen after the jump.
A week back Ghostface Killah announced his forthcoming album 36 Seasons (his thirteenth full length album to date), which will be dropping December 9th. With that Pretty Toney shared the first single, “Love Don’t Live Here No More”. The second single, “The Battlefield”, however, is more on the gritty side featuring NYC all-stars Kool G Rap and AZ. It’s worth noting that in addition to “The Battlefield” AZ will be appearing on four more tracks on 36 Seasons. Listen after the jump!
Rozay continues the monumental rollout for his forthcoming album Hood Billionaire (due out November 24th). He’s already dropped “Keep Doin’ That (Rich B*tch)”, “If They Knew”, “Nickel Rock”, “Movin’ Bass”, and “Trap Luv” so it only makes sense that he drops yet another Hood Billionaire cut. At this point it feels like you’ve heard the album already, no? Anyway… this time around it’s the Metro Boomin produced track “Neighborhood Drug Dealer”. Listen after the jump.
Don’t say it doesn’t run in the family. Will, Jaden, and now 14-year-old Willow Smith have all showcased their musical talents at a young age. After dropping the stellar, soulful cut “Female Energy” in late October Willow returns with “9″ off of her surprise EP, 3. The track also features TDE songstress SZA. Listen after the jump.
Project Pat shows his age with his new single “Twerk It”, a song about a cultural trend that is on its way out the door. Pat, who is undoubtedly an OG in the rap game, is struggling to find a groove in the 2010s but recruiting the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Wiz Khalifa, and Wale helps. Even if just a little.
