With Smoke DZA and Pete Rock’s full-length collabo, Don’t Smoke Rock, dropping tomorrow, the New York duo has released a new visual via Complex. The site also premiered an exclusive stream of the album.
Today Puff Daddy dropped off the deluxe version of his excellent MMM mixtape from November. You can scoop that up on iTunes. In addition, he’s sharing the project’s bonus track, “Old Man Wildin'” featuring Jadakiss and Styles P. As per the old saying: shut your mouth when grown-ups are talking. Check out Puff Daddy’s “Old Man Wildin” after the jump.
Although Jadakiss hasn’t really been making waves when it comes to the album format, he’s still a legend in the game — there’s no question about that. His last album was 2009’s The Last Kiss, which featured some stellar cuts — including single “By My Side” — but since then Jada’s mostly been hard at work with his fellow LOX brothers. However, all of that changed recently when the Yonkers emcee dropped his latest album, Top 5 Dead or Alive. And he’s now sharing the visuals to one of the album’s many highlights, the Ne-Yo and Nipsey Hussle assisted “Ain’t Nothin’ New,” produced by Beat Butcha, Buda & Grandz. Enjoy the music video to Jadakiss’ “Ain’t Nothin’ New” 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.
Celebrating his birthday Jadakiss is dropping a rarity from his vault. Jada is sharing “Shame on Ya,” a track which finds the emcee going over Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s “Brooklyn Zoo.” Check it out after the jump.
In case you don’t know who L-Dro is then that’s A-ok because Jadakiss and Beanie Sigel are here to put this track over. “The Life We Live” features both Kiss and Beans and their verses are both top notch here. While the track belongs to L-Dro, both Kiss and Beans go ham on the track. While Beans may perhaps be past his prime, don’t write the rapper off. Check out “The Life We Live” after the jump.
New York links up on Troy Ave’s latest cut. With his Major Without a Deal album dropping shortly (June 9th) Ave, who is from Brooklyn, finds himself besides two veterans; Jadakiss and fellow Brooklynite Fabolous. Listen to “Do Me No Favors” after the jump.
Jadakiss and Styles P, while very familiar with each other as they’re two-thirds of hip-hop group The LOX, are tag teaming this new track they’ve got out entitled “Block Work.” Needless to say the two go off on this track; bar for bar. Check it out after the jump.
