Eskeerdo is featured on Kendrick Lamar’s soon-to-be No. 1 album, To Pimp a Butterfly, but that’s not the extent of power moves being made from the Cuban MC/songwriter.
New music from Common is always appreciated around these parts. Today, he provides just that with a quality listen titled “Black America,” featuring Top Dawg Entertainment’s Ab-Soul.
Artists can blah blah about their upcoming album plans in YouTube videos until they’re blue in the face but without any sort of action (read: leaks!) nobody’s listening.
Kanye West has been highly accessible in the media of late, which may have worked against him in some regards considering the buzz around everything he does. But a recent comment against Jews really stood out for some, which West now said was an “ignorant compliment” taken out of context.
In May singer Jhené Aiko debuted a tune titled “Comfort Inn Ending” via her Tumblr page that was emotionally riveting, but extremely short. It appears that the first version was only a snippet, and today, she delivers the continuing piece for your listening pleasure.
Rising singer-songwriter Elijah Blake asserted himself as a wizard with the pen on hits records like Usher’s “Climax.” With his solo debut, Songs About Melody, on the way, the young crooner looks to make waves with his new single “Vendetta.”
Elijah Blake proved that his abilities ranged past penning hits for others with his Bijoux 22 EP late last year. A few months later, one of its standout tracks in “X.O.X.” finally receives a visual treatment.
The ball has been rolling for Logic, who went from a virtually unknown up and comer to a XXL Freshman and Def Jam signee. We’re sure that we missed a few details in between, but this quick change of circumstances alone should make his Young Sinatra: Welcome To Forever project worth a listen.
Logic was perhaps the least known artists to appear on this years XXL Freshman list, but the Baltimore rapper has worked his mystique into inking a deal with the house that Russell Simmons built. That’s right, the young MC is Def Jam’s latest signee, and to top it off, label EPV No I.D. will executive produce his debut album.
Common over more No I.D. production? Yes, please. The Chicago MC once again hooks up with Coca!ne 80’s for a new joint called “Congratulations.”
Monday, March 25, 100 of Big Sean‘s closest friends and family gathered for a surprise dinner party at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills to celebrate the rapper’s 25th birthday. The good folks at Rémy Martin V sponsored the soiree, which had a star studded list of attendees that included G.O.O.D. Music affiliates Travis Scott and Common, Wiz […]
Anything Kanye West is involved in is sure to get the media buzzing, and over the weekend that’s what exactly happened. BBC News reported on March 23 story that West and Kim Kardashian plan to name the first child North. Although the baby boy is expected this July, the other big news the UK outlet […]
J. Cole admits that he was slipping. The Roc Nation MC, who just dropped a five-song project called Truly Yours, had his hands on a pair of No I.D. beats that eventually became Nas’ “Stay” and Rick Ross’ “Tears Of Joy,” but he snoozed on locking them down.
Over the weekend, Co-caine 80s blessed the Internets in the form of a new EP, The Flower of Life. With No I.D. and James Fauntleroy at the helm, the otherwise ambiguous group dropped “Fly A$$ Pisces,” which was thought to be a loose track. Instead, the Jhene Aiko and Common-assisted jam is just one of seven songs to […]
Tip’s Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head will see its proper release next Tuesday, December 18, but that hasn’t stopped the Internets from getting their mitts on tracks like “Wildside.” T.I. uses personal anecdotes to support his explanation for why people in impoverished situations resort to criminal activity.
Over the weekend, Eminem used perhaps the most unconventional method possible to announced his plans to release his eighth studio album in 2013. The announcement, of sorts, came in the form a of a snap back hat styled to commemorate the recent success of the Detroit Tigers and was debuted on Eminem’s official online store.
Anthony “Twilite Tone” Khan is an alien; equal parts eccentric, unassuming, prophetic, and speaking a music language far outside of the sonic stratosphere. He could boast about the credits on his resume (which most notably includes Common and Kanye West), but he’d rather not, because regardless of whom he’s creating for, the quality never falters.
Big Sean is being very secretive about his sophomore LP, Hall of Fame: Memoirs of a Detroit Player, giving only its title a few weeks ago. Luckily for fans, the good folks at HipHop-N-More caught up with the Detroit MC after a recent Atlantic City performance to discuss his the project. During the sit down, Big Sean revealed just enough details to […]
New Common? Yes, please. Cocaine 80’s lets loose a No I.D. produced joint from Lonnie Rashid Lynn called “No Sell Out.” Not sure if it was intended to land on late last year’s critically acclaimed but commercially snoozed on The Dreamer/The Believer, but this is a good a start as any for the weekend. Com Sense […]
