Fresh out of prison, southern rapper Gucci Mane is already in the booth and linking up with some of the industry’s best. After two years in jail, Gucci was released yesterday, and the news went viral. Word quickly spread throughout the entire Hip Hop community. In less than 24 hours Gucci has already gifted us a new track produced by hit-maker Mike Will Made It entitled “First Day Out Tha FEDS.”
Before we call it a comeback, let’s consider the fact the Gucci has put out more music during his incarceration then some of his free-willed peers. So what we will call this is “consistent.” Only because that is the one thing that Gucci has been over and over again. Even when he was literally in between a rock and a hard place.
Zende is an 18 year old rapper/songwriter from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He’s not your average Pittsburgh rapper, as he approaches music differently than most of his peers. Whether it’s mixing catchy punchlines, lovey dovey lyrics, or making songs about brown skin women, his growth will surely be something to pay attention to.
His latest track titled “Brownskin” is produced by BNJMN and features Cj Tonic. “Brownskin” is an ode to women that share the title’s complexion and something nice to vibe to regardless of race. Check out the new track below and keep an eye on this young emcee.
Atl rapper 2 Chainz links up with DJ E Feezy for the new collab joint “Pocket Full Of Money.” Currently the single is not slated to appear on 2 Chainz upcoming album or on a compilation album, however, one thing is for sure…the new single is dope. To compliment the new single 2 Chainz is back with his highly entertaining GQ segment, “Most Expensive Sh*t.” You can watch as 2 Chainz samples half a million dollars worth of weed, bongs, and dabs, and takes the most epic hit of all time.
Listen to “Pocket Full Of Money” and check out the “half a milli” smoke session below.
After the fallout within Cash Money Records towards the end of 2014, Hip Hop heads haven’t known what to expect from the collective since. However, one thing hasn’t change and that is the fact that Cash Money/Young Money still puts out great music. One look at Billboard’s charts will provide you the evidence. Now that Drizzy season is amongst us and the release of his Views album has already topped charts, Hip Hop heads are now waiting for the moment to see the squad team up for some new collabs. Ladies and gentlemen, that moment is here…
Below you can find the official remix to Drake’s “Hype.” The original single is a standout track from his already platinum Views album. The new remix features Lil Wayne and with that being said, it is straight heat.
Cam’ron and Juelz Santana is back at it again with the new single “Oh Yeah.” The duo are on back on the scene with a cut that is reminiscent of their 2002 hit “Oh Boy.” The new song has that same sampled up styled chorus with both Cam and Juelz delivering their usual one-two punch.
Check out “Oh Yeah” by Cam’ron and Juelz Santana below.
Is this the beginning of yet another Dipset comeback?
T.I. is back with today’s release of his latest single and music video “Dope,” featuring Marsha Ambrosius, produced by Dr. Dre. Tip lays down his lyrics easy like Sunday morning with the new track also sampling Aaliyah’s “Rock the Boat.” T.I. is fully aware of the potential greatness of this new song and the company this track keeps, rapping in the song’s first verse, “Truth is for real, feel like Dre and Pharrell / Mixed with Eric B and Rakim shorty, hell on a scale / And still the game enticing me, like every time I see her / They like to pop a seal, high enough to see Aaliyah.”
The video for “Dope” is currently exclusive to Tidal as his new album The Dime Trap is also expected to be. Earlier this year, Tip signed a distribution deal with Jay Z‘s Roc Nation and Tidal companies for the release of his forthcoming LP and tenth studio album.
It sounds like T.I. is coming back for his crown. Hit play below and let us know what you think.
Earlier in the year we had no idea who Desiigner was…I mean c’mon, let’s be honest. Now with the #1 spot atop of Billboard’s Hot 100, Desiigner has already become “2016’s Breakout Artist of the Year”. After recently dethroning Rihanna’s “Work” single from #1, Desiigner made a “Late Night” appearance with Stephen Colbert and performed his smash-hit “Panda”.
Last year, it was announced that a new skate film produced by Nas starring Erykah Badu titled The Land was in motion. The icing to this cake is the soundtrack, which features contributions from Kanye West, Pusha T, Nas, Erykah Badu, and more. Today, the first trailer for the movie was released and it looks pretty dope. Peep the clip below.
50 Cent and Chris Brown once again hit the studio to create something magical. Fresh off of their remix to “I’m the Man,” Fif and Breezy collab for “No Romeo No Juliet,” which is expected to be featured on Fif’s upcoming album Kanan Reloaded, a follow-up to December’s The Kanan Tape.
The two entertainers exchange some pretty impressive bars, (yes, Chris Brown is rapping) which leads one to think that Drake may not actually be in a lane all by himself. Chris Brown brings his A’ game and 50 Cent brings the G’ out.
What more can I say about this track other than, “You can find it below.”
Just a few days ago October’s Very Own, Drake, released his highly anticipated album Views. Last night while at a Views listening party in Toronto, Drake boasted to the crowd that he sold around 630,000 copies of his new album in one night. You can hear him in the clip above.
If comparing Drake’s album, What a Time to Be Alive sold 375,000 first week and If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late moved 535,000 units in a three day span.
Views will surely debut at No. 1 next week and mostly likely hit platinum status soon after. The “One Dance” single is already crushing records on the U.K. charts and has quickly become Drake’s first No. 1 hit on the Canadian Billboard Hot 100. Only time will tell what heights this album will take the Toronto native. One thing is for sure, over 600,000 copies sold in one night is phenomenal and once the album hits Spotify, the insane numbers of streaming will continue to soar. The question I have for you is, “Where does Views fall in comparison to Drakes previous releases?”
