Last week, the Streets Of Compton documentary series premiered via cable network A&E. The docu sheds light on Compton’s rich yet turmoiled history of drugs, violence, and political propaganda. The three-part series also explains the connection between the city’s history and its culture. One major piece of the culture is most certainly Hip Hop. Check out the new song entitled “Death Row Chain” by The Game below.
A soundtrack is to accompany the docu series and Game is taking lead. The soundtrack, which is sure to be some serious heat, is set to drop June 17th.
Many have speculated over the thought of a sequel to G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer. Recently rumors have been on the rise and the title Cruel Winter has even surfaced. Yesterday, Kanye West & friends put the rumors to bed with they unleashed a record featuring Kanye, Travis Scott, Big Sean, Quavo, Yo Gotti, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, and Desiigner.
At the time of the radio premiere on Real 92.3 with Big Boy, there was no title given for the new track, however today that has changed. The new track is titled “Champions” and the radio rip can be heard below.
Summer may be just getting started, but it looks like we are in for a Cruel Winter.
“Johnstown’s Own” Chris DeVille is back on the scene with a powerful visual that captures the epidemic that many of America’s communities are facing. As the war on drugs continues in our neighborhoods, the Pennsylvania emcee sheds light on the issue and once again proves that he is more than music.
“Somewhere there’s a mother that wishes she had done more,” said DeVille. “Somewhere there’s a person who is controlled by a disease and just wants their life back. I want this song to be a comforting touch on the shoulder of a grieving mother, or reflection from a mirror that provides the strength for someone to get their life back.”
The new track by DeVille is titled “Save Me” and features fellow Pennsylvania emcee Wes Penn and R&B songstress Kim King. The gripping visual was shot by Jason Inde and is sure to gain the attention of many. It is still unclear if the new single will appear on Chris DeVille’s upcoming project, but be on the lookout for his EP, Still A Dreamer, scheduled to drop this summer.
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…

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.
