no i.d.

jay-z, News

No I.D.’s production has been revered in Hip-Hop circles for as long as he’s been working the boards and making a name for himself (even if his moniker states otherwise). But the Chicago producer has now been thrust into the national stage thanks to his involvement in helping Jay-Z craft what fans are already hailing […]

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 […]
