drake-beats1-ovo-sound-radio-lead

We all know that a Drake feature does wonders for an up & coming artist.  Now WizKid, RamRiddlz, and Roy Woods will all find out for themselves.  Earlier in the week, Drake teased that there would be some exclusives dropping on his inaugural episode of OVO Sound Radio: Drake and Company’s Show on Beats Radio 1. Yesterday, Drake followed through with 3 new bangers (no solo records) that feature him and promote the underground sounds of OVO.

The 3 tracks are songs brought to us from two individual Toronto standouts and a Nigerian up & comer.  Toronto singer RamRiddlz drops his Drake remixed “Sweeterman.” WizKid releases his hot single “Ojuelegba” which features Drake and popular Grime artist Skepta.  Roy Woods also debuted his new record “Drama” featuring Drake. All of these tracks were premiered via OVO Sound Radio yesterday. Listen to all three records featuring Drizzy below.

[Hot New Music!] Lil Wayne – Free Weezy Album (FWA)

fwa

The wait is finally over! Lil Wayne releases his highly anticipated album just in time to get the holiday started off proper.  The back and forth between Weezy and Cash Money has culminated in a surprise release of his Free Weezy Album on TIDAL.  Less than a month ago Wayne announced that he had signed a deal with Jay-Z. Well, that deal was actually a negotiation that made Wayne the newest co-owner of TIDAL

Today via TIDAL you can now stream the 15-track album that features Jeezy, Cory Gunz, Wiz Khalifa, Junior Reid, and more.  For those who have been on the fence about joining the TIDAL wave, today is the perfect time for you to take advantage of the free trial.  So far we have only had the opportunity to hear “Glory,” which I believe was Weezy setting the bar for this album. It can only get better from there, so listen to FWA and be sure to give us your feedback.

Before you get your fireworks popping tonight, get your party jumping now with Wayne’s Free Weezy Album.

[Hot New Video!] Rihanna – “BBHMM”

rihanna

Rihanna is clearly in a lane all by herself and at this point I just hope these b*tches got her money.  After teasing onlookers at the 2015 BET Awards with a trailer for her latest single, “BBHMM” or “B*tch Better Have My Money,” RiRi finally drops the short film directed by Evan E. Rogers.

The explicit video shows Rihanna and friends getting gritty in an attempt to get the money that was embezzled from her.  The “BBHMM” visual contains some bloody scenes, pot smoking, and even some nudity. Yes, there is a full frontal of Rihanna in this video, but it’s definitely not what you’re thinking.  

The NSFW 7-minute video is truly a piece of art and surely a contender for video of the year.

Check out Rihanna’s new video below and enjoy the ride.

Fresh off of his invigorating performance of “Alright” at the 2015 BET Awards, Kendrick Lamar decides to drop a 7-minute visual to the single.  The short film by Colin Tilley is very true to the song’s title. Filled with unembellished images of the police’s relationship with black America, “Alright” is a visual masterpiece. This visual takes Kendrick’s To Pimp A Butterfly standout track to all new levels.

[Hot New Music!] French Montana feat. Lil Wayne and Rick Ross – “Lose It”

french-montana-gucci-mane

French Montana’s Mac and Cheese 4 has been on ice for quite some time now, however we have recently been shown signs that French’s sophomore album may be on deck.  Today the Coke Boys captain drops a new single titled “Lose It”.  The track is produced by Kanye West and The Mekaniks, and it features guest appearances by Rick Ross and Lil Wayne.  At this point we are not really sure when this track was recorded because Wayne drops the line “Cash Money till I die,” which we all know is a throwback statement.  Regardless of that flashback, the track is fire and the beat is smoking.

Check out the new one by French Montana below…and oh yeah, #FreeRozay.

[Hip Hop News Now] Yasiin Bey (FKA Mos Def) To Perform At “Summer Recess” Concert In Philadelphia Hosted By Freeway

 

Screen Shot 2015-06-22 at 8.19.09 PM

Little Giant Creative presents the first-ever Summer Recess concert featuring international MC and actor Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), and hosted by Freeway, famed recording artist and Philadelphia native. The mid-summer concert will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2015 at Union Transfer at 8 pm.

Performing for an anticipated crowd of over 1,000 fans, Bey is making a rare appearance on the East Coast – and in the US – for this special night, at one of the Philadelphia’s newest and most popular venues. The intimate setting is ideal for the performers, who are known for their electric shows that prompt audiences to immerse themselves in the music.

“Summer Recess was conceived as a platform to not only satiate Philadelphia’s love for genuine hip hop music and exceptional lyricism, but to present the city as a mecca for independently produced and curated concerts that celebrate the best of undiscovered and extraordinary talent,” said Meegan Denenberg, partner at Little Giant Creative. “Sponsored by Heineken Green Room, we are continuing to create legendary musical experiences by bringing Yasiin Bey and Freeway together for this show.”

Both students of early Hip Hop music and role models for a new generation of rhyme slayers, Bey and Free have distinct styles that at times appear disparate. The Summer Recess concert will bridge the gap between their perceived differences, bringing together an eclectic audience of rap aficionados and Hip Hop lovers of all ages and backgrounds.

For Freeway, the show is about more than just rhyming on a stage.

“Philly is home, so coming back to host Summer Recess is an honor,” said the rapper. “With Yasiin Bey headlining, we’re giving Philadelphia – especially the younger generation – a taste of pure Hip Hop.”

Tickets go on sale today, June 22, 2015 at 12 pm here: The first 200 tickets purchased online will cost $25; the remaining advanced tickets will cost $30 ($35 if purchased the day of).  The concert is 21+. Visit Summer-Recess.com for more information.
