Wiz and Nicki flirt with this pop rock stadium ballad all throughout. As their voices barely touch the drums, maybe they mean to reveal that the true colors of their artistry only peripherally involve rapping. It’s also a coup that two artists who will be competing for sales with important late-year albums are teaming up for a song instead of beefing. Check out “True Colors” after the jump.

Great to debate which is the best Carter now that The Carter V is on the way. This is the lead single and video from the latest Weezy effort. It puts him right at home in an asylum, struggling to spread his styles to the masses. So many styles. Admission to the crazy house after the jump.

The Snowman stops in with hip-hop’s favorite auntie interviewer. He talks mostly about his new record, and how Jay-Z doesn’t cry but could cry if he wanted to because he’s that rich.

First song of the day that we’re excited to listen to. Seems like Sir Michael Rocks and Chuck Inglish, both formerly of The Cool Kids, are using their teamwork skills to make strong tracks with all but each other. This one is named after the best non-defense-playing guard in the the NBA, James Harden. The warped voices and squeaky horns are amazing contrasts from Vic’s jumping flow and Killa Kyleon’s brap-brap-brap verses. It’s a trampoline. Check the audio after the jump.

New joint from Mr. Veggies and King Chip on a drippy saxophone track that sounds like eighties homage meets sitcom camp. Chip and Casey create real chemistry on their paired verses. From the The Sparks Foundation’ Forever Madness The Randy Savage EP. Hat tip to NahRight. Stream after the jump.

This is a gem from the homey Cavalier, the Brooklyn chief whose collaborations with producers Quelle Chris and Iman Omari have gained him solid backing after years in the trenches. “Ink” paints a picture of the young emcee’s journey with a focus on hard lessons and gloomy glimpses. Iman Omari’s production really sings here though, giving voice and texture to this grainy photo album of classic nostalgia.

G-Unit sounds angry to be together but that has sparked some competitive fire in 50 and Yayo especially. Buck also has a gruff piercing bark on the last few Gorilla Unit remakes. Listen to them spit complaints about lack of loyalty after the jump.
