I know I’m late on this track, but the Freshest K is been preoccupied making big moves. Better late then never, right? I still need to listen to the song a few more times before casting a full blown opinion on it. But how can this collabo not produce a banger?

This video is quite ridiculous in its own right. The first visual offering from Kanyes’ My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Word on the street is this track was laid down back in 2007. Why is it just surfacing three years later? I have no clue. The track commentates on the current state of hip-hop, saying how it is more beat-inspired music without a focus on the lyrics itself. The bonus track very well may make an appearance on Detox. There was a version released earlier this year featuring T.I. Is Detox going to be a huge disappointment?

Here is the first single from Jay Electronica under his Roc Nation label. He spit the acapella at his Roc Nation signing event at The Box on Friday night. The song samples John F. Kennedy’s “We Choose To Go To The Moon” speech. Expect BIG things from this man in the near future.

I don’t think there has been a G.O.O.D. Friday that was released before midnight. Yeezy may as well change the name to Saturday. As usual, this weeks edition goes hard with a ton of features on the track. Also, Ye tweeted that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is mixed, mastered and complete.

Wow. Big news poppin in the industry. The word is that Yeezy and HOVA are releasing a five track album titled Watch The Throne. This is the second track from the LP, with the first being the Power Remix.

Here it is people. It has finally arrived, despite being a week late. Song gets a little crazy around the 3:30 mark when Swizzy dices things up. Mix in a little lyrics from the original Power Snap? Yeezy goes hardbody on his new verse. “Now when I walk in everybody do the power clap”

Here is CD quality version of the highly anticipated single from Usher’s Versus LP. This album is a sequel to his previous album Raymond vs Raymond. I guess the homie had more to say about what has been going on in his life the last few years. According to wikipedia, a “hot toddy” is, “a name given to a mixed drink, usually including alcohol, that is served hot”. I think it is safe to say Ursher has his own definition of the word. Anyways, he got young H-O-V to go in on the track too and he kills his verse. His album Versus is slated for an August 24th release.

I posted the tagged version of this jam a week ago. Here is the tag free version, which is relieving to say the least. Keep in mind that this version is unfinished, unmixed, missing a chorus and a third verse.

Me and the rest of the world who were not fortunate enough to attend Coachella can only sit here and watch this clip, while imaging how amazing all of the festivities must have been this past weekend. One of my homies who attended, who has seen Jay-Z multiple times live said his set was better than all of the previous combined. Supposedly Jay-Z did somewhere around 30 songs and just brought the place down. Hit the jump to see the actual set list. (more…)

It has been announced that Drake’s highly anticipated debut album Thank Me Later will be officially released on June 15, 2010. I expect most of the album to be leaked by early May and OTNS will surely be on top of that. The full tracklist can be seen after the jump as well as Drake’s first time performing the track “Over,” which he did last week in Acapulco.

Planning On Going To Bonnaroo? – Do It In Style 03/26/2010

The lineup for this year’s Bonnaroo Music Festival is simply ridiculous.  Pretty much all my favorites are on the card, including: Jay – Z, Phoenix, The xx, Kid Cudi, Nas, The National, and many more.  A nutty new ticket package was just introduced called Bonnaroo Total Access – Here’s the deal:

For a hefty $18,500 (or $2,350 per person for 8 people), you get some pretty ill perks:

An on-stage viewing area for main stage performances, exclusive viewing areas for all peripheral stage shows, private showers and bathrooms, 24/7 golf cart service, an on-site concierge, open bars and hospitality tents scattered around the grounds, and pre-stocking of the bus with your favorite goodies.  It may be a touch expensive, but it definitely beats sleeping next to some candy-flipping grimey ass hippies. (Which is still pretty chill)  To check out a video on the ticket package, hit more: (more…)

After HOV and Jeezy brought down the United Center last night, they decided to rage at The Shrine in Chicago. MaxB and I spoke of making the last minute move down to the Chi, but things didn’t work out to say the least. Apparently LBJ didn’t let anything get in his way to see the show, let alone make moves to the club. The Cavs play the Bulls tonight at 8pm CST and I would not be surprised to see Jay-Z, Jeezy and others sitting court side. Other guest appearances include Derrick Rose, Hakim Warrick, Antawn Jamison and plenty of other NBA players.  Hit the jump to see more pictures and a video from the evening.

I am not usually a fan of mashups, but this one is definitely a special one. Put together by the good people at Kenzo Digital, here is part 2 of the beat cinematic project which features The Norotious B.I.G., Jay-Z, & Nas. This chapter is entitled Eulogy and is not like any other mash up you have heard before. Listen to the sound clip below and read what the creator had to say about this piece. Hit more to see an indescribable video to go along with the song along with more information about the project.

This song was created to celebrate and commemorate the life of the late, great Notorious BIG. As the 2nd “Deleted Scene” from the “City of God’s Son” project, I wanted to show my respects by creating this song, and create a parallel world where Biggie still lives. For more information please visit www.CityofGodSon.com

I didn’t even know Beyonce had a sister until I stumbled upon Solange Knowles’ remix of Dirty Projectors’ ridiculously hot single “Stillness Is The Move” off last summers’ Bitte Orca.  She took a perfect song, and re-perfected it with the head-nodding beat from Dr. Dre‘s “Xxplosive” and a sexy ass voice.  Over the weekend, the Dirty Projectors invited the singer on stage for their performance at a NYC Fashion Week party, where they put on a dope performance of “Stillness.”  See a video of the performance, downloads of the two versions of the song, and more on Solange after the jump.
