“The album is Platnium and its not even out. Samsung bought 1 million copies of his Jay Z’s new album and is giving it away to new users. Genius” – “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” will be releases July 4th, and plans to give them to Samsung Galaxy smartphone users for free will happen 72 hours ahead of the release.
Girl power at its finest, Fantasia’s, sizzling hot new single, “Without Me”, is at the top of my list. Bottom line, this sh*t goes hard! How genius was it to allow the reigning female rap champion, Missy Elliot to lace this sexy/funky track. Missy’s lyrics are as sick as ever and Kelly Rowland’s silky soulful voice is the perfect compliment to Fantasia’s perfect pitch. “Without Me” is off Fantasia’s 4th album “Side Effects of You”, available now.
16 year old rapper, Bishop Nehru, is young blood to the hip hop industry with a wicked flow. Last week, he gave his debut performance at the Ghostface, MF Doom Converse show and dominated the stage. Check out the video of his live performance and the music video for his hit single, Misruled Order
Nice! Premo laced LL Cool J with a cold beat on “Jump On It”, off of LL’s 13th album “Authentic”. “Jump On It” is a featureless song (Amen), but the album itself features some of the biggest names in music like Snoop Dogg, Fatman Scoop, Chuck D, the lead-guitarist from Van Halen – Eddie Van Halen, former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, Rage Against The Machine lead-guitarist Tom Morello and R&B singers, Charlie Wilson, Seal and Joe. LL Cool J sounds lightweight hungry again! Take a listen…
“Come Here,” an incredibly smooth track brought to you by Talib Kweli and artist, Miguel, who seems to be taking over the R&B ingustry. The track is produced by Sean C & LV (Grind Music) and is featured on Kweli’s upcoming album, “Prisoner of Conscious” which drops May 7th.
When Ludacris do a mixtape, he gets buck wild with it! “If I Ain’t F*cked Up” is a new hype cut from Ludacris‘ forthcoming mixtape – “I Don’t Give a Fuck”. Of course the song is a club-ready hit with that signature deep down gutter Southern bass Luda is known for. “If I Ain’t F*cked Up” is a party song through and through with references of getting pissy drunk and having a good ass time. It’s greatly appreciated that Luda keeps pumping out music, proving real talent equals longevity.
Jay Z is winning! First he dominates and produces all the music on mega blockbuster video game, NBA 2k13. And now he has one of the hottest songs on the soundtrack of the adapted feature film, “The Great Gatsby” starring A-Listers like Leonardo DiCaprio. I would have posted the song earlier, but the movie producers muted it on youtube and all the other music hosts. Whatever. Here it is now… another hit from the king on the throne. Great job Jay Z!
The new film, “The Great Gatsby” is “an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby’s nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.” The movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, Tobey Maguire, and is directed by Luhrmann.
There were soooo many surprise visits at the 2013 Coachella Music & Arts Festival!! There was Tyler The Creator who shocked the audience during Earl Sweatshirt’s performance. Legendary R&B Singer, R. Kelly slipped in during Phoenix’s performance. Solange graced our presence during The xx performance, and here we have John Legend performing with Benny Benassi on the new dance track titled, “Dance the Pain Away” !
Words can’t describe the state of euphoria that everyone felt while these two ‘legends’ performed this incredible song. Included in this post is a snippet of the soon to be worldwide hit. “Dance The Pain Away” is so reminiscent of why we traveled far and wide to be at this year’s Coachella Festival.
Jay Z responds to his critics who were displeased with his and Beyonce’s trip to Cuba, with a powerful new song titled, “Open Letter”. Jay Z still has his hunger from when he first started, which is why I, and millions of others love his music. On top of that, the beat goes HARD!
