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.

As the release of French Montana’s fourth studio album, Mac & Cheese 4, nears us, French drops an unexpected bomb. The Bad Boy Ent. artist just released a brand new project titled Wave Gods, hosted by his longtime homie Max B. Featured on the new mixtape is a hidden treasure which features both Kanye West and Nas.
The “Figure It Out” track is a smooth soulful cut that gives the trio a moment to speak on the highs and lows of not only success, but life in general. Peep the new joint below as well as the entire Wave Gods project further below.
A beef has been cooking for the last couple of days that has culminated with the incarcerated Harlem rapper Max B throwing shade at Kanye. Yesterday, Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa attempted to break the internet when the two went back and forth on Twitter. The riff started when Kanye announced his new album will be renamed Waves (formerly Swish, previously titled So Help Me God). Once the announcement came out, Hip Hop heads, including Wiz, went into a frenzy.
Since the spill over on Twitter, the currently incarcerated Max B, who is serving a 75 year sentence, took it upon himself to reach out to Kanye. He did this the only way he knew how to…on wax.
Be on the lookout for Max B’s “Waves” documentary to drop the same day as Kanye’s album. Peep the trailer below.
Kanye West’s last album, Yeezus, dropped nearly 3 years ago. Since then, we have watched the “Jack-of-all-trades” artist reach for the higher levels of Yeezus. With the release of his next album, Swish, approaching us it’s no surprise that we find Yeezy in the midst of some news. Ye’s “Black Skinhead” track of 2013, was the lead single for his Yeezus album. A remix to the Daft Punk and Mike Dean-produced hit was teased, but never released.
This morning someone dug deep in the internet and as a result…we have Kanye’s “Black Skinhead” remix featuring none other than Miley Cyrus, along with Travis Scott, and Lupe Fiasco. This is definitely not an official release for the remix and we are still unclear on what Lupe’s contributions are to the song, but at this point…does it really matter?
Do yourself a favor and listen to the leaked remix here.
Teyana Taylor follows up the 2014 release of her album, VII, with a mixtape to calm the thirst of her fans.
Walk Like Us delivers the mixtape entitled, The Cassette Tape 1994, which includes five dope 90s inspired tracks that takes us back into time. It’s time to go get that grill back out and find those double dutch ropes. If your a 90s Hip Hop Head then you’ll have to find some enjoyment in listening to this new mixtape by Teyana.
The 5-track collection features production from Kanye West (“Your Wish”), Da Internz (“Touch Me”), and J.R. Rotem (“Undercover”), the smooth voice of Eric Bellinger (“Tonight”), and an appearance from her boyfriend, Iman Shumpert of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In light of the recent tragedies that have sent our country in a full sprint backwards, Big Sean blesses us with a visual to his standout track “One Man Can Change The World”. This single is different than most for Sean as it is not the typical radio tune, but instead it is a song that tugs at the heart.
Fellow Chi-town native Kanye West and singer/songwriter John Legend join Big Sean for his heartfelt single which is a tribute to his grandmother who was called to heaven last December. Watch the Andrew Hines directed video below and listen to Big Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise here.
Yesterday Chicago native Vic Mensa dropped the visual to his latest single “U Mad” featuring fellow Chi-town native Kanye West. The Roc Nation artist has been hard at work with Kanye as they have been touring together for most of the year. Things are starting to move fast for Vic as he works to create his own lane with his debut album, Traffic, which should be released by the end of the year. For now, check out Vic’s first video since signing to the Roc and let us know what you think.
Since the demise of Roc-A-Fella Records nearly ten years ago, Dame Dash has found little mainstream success. Known for his fast-talking and attraction for big lights, Dash is now a mere shadow of the Hip Hop Icon he was once thought to be. However, like any strong willed entrepreneur, Dash is far from accepting that his run at success is over. Most recently Dash and Kanye West have launched their own joint venture and we have a sneak peek of their first project below.
The project is a new film titled, Too Honorable. The movie features appearances from Cam’ron, Stacey Dash, Styles P, Murda Mook, and more. The Damon Dash Studios film is scheduled to release May 25th on Poppingtongroup.com. A mixtape for the movie is in the works as well and it will be executive-produced by Dame Dash and Kanye West.
Watch the new trailer for Too Honorable below and be sure to share your thoughts with us.
