Kanye West debuted his new song “New Slaves” through a projection on 66 landmark buildings in 10 cities across North America, Europe, and Australia.  The content of the track is in stark contrast from the topics of in industry rappers, and even from Kanye himself.  But the message is loud and clear, and could not have been marketed better.  Check the method below.

Chris Brown – I Don’t Like (Drake Diss).


Did you think the Chris Brown and Drake drama was finished? Of course it isn’t. Chris Brown hops on Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like,” and drops some lyrical darts at his fellow light-skinned antagonist. Although Breezy makes it clear that he has no problems at all with the other members of YMCMB, he makes it crystal clear his beef is with Drake and it is over Rihanna.

“A f-ck ni**a, that’s that sh-t I don’t like/They throwin’ bottles, I’m throwin’ models just ’cause I give a Itchbay long pipe,” raps Breezy. “I be singin’, he be singin’, so it’s on, fight/ But hold up, I ain’t give a ni**a no green light/ This head up, my bread up, one on one, what you scared, bruh?/ Matter fact, take care bruh, you a pu**y ni**a/ My ni**a Tunechi, yeah that ni**a nice/ Shout out to Nicki, man, that A$$ tight/ Them eyebrows, man, them sh-ts is yikes/ OVO, you overdosed, screamin’ YOLO no, I live twice.”

Young Gunz vs. Wale & Big Sean.


Every so often, I get bored and decide to make a basic mashup, just to play in my car, or toy around with on my phone when I’m bored.  I don’t typically release generic “someone’s lyrics over someone else’s beat” tracks, but when a good friend of mine heard a random mix I finished about a month ago, he wouldn’t stop bugging me till I dropped it.  So for your listening pleasure, I’ve assembled a basic mashup of Young Gunz ‘Can’t Stop Won’t Stop’ and ‘Slight Work’ from Wale ft. Big Sean.  You can download it here, or just take a listen below.

Lupe Fiasco – The End Of The World.


Click the pic to listen

It’s rare for me to post on a song that isn’t deeply embedded in my musical consciousness much less one I haven’t listened to thoroughly a couple of times, but the continuation of Lupe Fiasco’s Thanksgiving mixtape release tradition (inaugurated with the November 2009 release of ‘Enemy of the State: A Love Story’) is a special exception. For one, it’s Lupe Fiasco. In the aftermath of the career-boosting, reputation-destabilising ‘Lasers’ – whose ragtag compilation of autotuned mishits and austere political commentary has been blamed variously on an overambitious Lupe and an overcontrolling Atlantic Records – it’s good to know that he hasn’t taken its critical panning to heart and is keen to continue innovating and putting out new material. For two, the significance of this mixtape is readily apparent glancing down the track listing. Alongside ‘End Of The World’ which samples M83 (more on them in a moment), the mixtape (traditionally stacked with tracks featuring vocals layed over others’ original beats) features Justice cuts, SebastiAn tunes and Nero, Glitch Mob and Skrillex originals. Not your average hip-hop mixtape than.

Rob Scott – To Be Continued.



Rob Scott’s ‘To Be Continued’ mixtape dwells primarily on the trials and tribulations of an underground artist’s career while managing the up and downs with his relationship.  The project makes an interesting first strike by showcasing an entire interconnected trilogy of songs, as apposed to just a single.  The first 3 tracks are ‘Soprano’, ‘Pocahontas’, and ‘Hostage’. ‘Soprano’ is essentially a metaphorical song in which the words describe the duties of an actually soprano, but can also easily be perceived as love making tune.  ‘Pocahontas’ dwells on an interracial relationship, and in the video Rob gets married to a white girl.  Because of an overwhelming disapproval, no only does no one support his choice, no one attends the wedding.  At the end of ‘Pocahontas’, he catches her flirting/cheating with another guy, which leads to the last song in the trilogy.  In Hostage, which is probably the most climatic song, things take a very unexpected turn for the worst.  Check out the official trailer for all the music videos below.
