It’s a rarity that we come across any new material from emcee’s that are longer with us, but when we would do it’s almost a feeling of immortality or timelessness. That sensation is a beautiful thing especially when it comes to those artists who we love to hear from. Most recently, RZA found himself digging in the crates at Wu Mansion and unearthed an unheard never released to the public O.D.B. track. Yesterday, via YouTube, the new track entitled “Obey Me” was released and remixed by Shash’U, its original version is available for purchase through Boombotix.
In this version, Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s son takes center stage in the visual as he pays homage to the late Wu Tang rapper. Peep the new ODB track below and watch as the apple appears to not fall far from the tree.
As we near the release date of Rick Ross’ forthcoming album, Black Market, Renzel continues to fill our ears with new music everyday. Today, Ross takes us back in time as he connects with DJ Clue for a freestyle over The Notorious B.I.G. and Junior Mafia‘s “Get Money.”
As members of the Clipse, Pusha T and his brother Malice were best known for the group’s breakthrough hit “Grindin.” Over ten years later and Pusha is still “grindin,” from the release of his debut solo album, My Name Is My Name, to being featured on countless tracks. Now things are coming full circle for Pusha T as Billboard announced this morning that the Virginia native, born Terrence Thornton, has been announced as the new President of G.O.O.D. Music.
Pusha is brand new to the position, but is already thinking to the future. He spoke briefly this morning about the new opportunity and about helping to develop younger artists like Kacy Hill, G.O.O.D.’s newest signee.
I just look at capitalizing on everything that I feel like G.O.O.D. Music brings to the music industry, our following, and the culture. First of all, we have incredible artists. It’s definitely about getting those albums out in a very manicured fashion. We have great artistic talent that sort of walk the lines of bringing that excitement back in regards to just the art that goes along with it like DONDA, the merch and things like that.
Now that Pusha T is set to make an even bigger impact in Hip Hop, can we finally ask the question we have all been wondering, “What the hell happened to Malice?” Seriously, what happened to that boy?
Tim Westwood has been digging in the crates recently and now he has discovered a true gem. The gem is an unreleased freestyle by Hip Hop Kingpin Jay Z. The freestyle is dated from 1999 and was recorded shortly after the release of Hova’s fourth studio album Vol. 3 … Life & Times of S. Carter.
The freestyle is saturated with some dope lyrics that could be heard later in some of Jay’s most popular songs.
