Drake - Headlines (Prod. Boi-1da & 40)

The first official single from Drake's sophomore album, Take Care is finally here! Personally, I like this release more then "Marvin's Room" and "Trust Issues." The track was produced by Boi-1da and 40, who collaborated for the production of "Over" and "Miss Me" from Drizzy's debut Thank Me Later. Drake is such a good artist, he doesn't need to collab with someone to switch from rapping to singing on the track.

Calvin Harris - Bounce ft. Kelis (Video + Mp3)

I found this while watching late night MTV videos, it has a catchy beat and I've had it stuck in my head for the past couple days. Check out the visuals for "Bounce"

Throwback Thursday

I know it's not Thursday, its Friday, but I haven't done a throwback in weeks that I just thought of doing one again. Im trying to get back into it, but this weeks throwback is Gheto Boys "Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangsta." Now, everyone may know this instrumental through Wiz's "Damn It Feels Good To Be A Taylor," I wouldn't be surprised about it, but this track track came out way before Wiz started recording music.

R6 Cypher - Episode 7

Longest episode yet. Just about 10 MCs ripping it. Sick.

Chiddy Bang - Under The Sheets (Video)

I've always loved Chiddy Bang, ever since I heard their first track "Kids" before it was switched to "Opposite of Adults." That doesn't matter though, here's the new visuals for their track "Under The Sheets," where Xaphoon Jones sampled Ellie Goulding's "Under The Sheets." Might I say he did a fine job with it too. Here's the video for "Under The Sheets."

Macklemore - Wings (Prod. by Ryan Lewis) (Official Video)

In my opinion, this is hands down the best video I've ever seen, and the song makes it so much better. It has a mixture of a children's chorus, awesome beat, and the emotional lyrics that Macklemore is known for doing, making it such a powerful video and song. Many helped to contribute into funding for the this video, which needed $10,000 to create, but fans were supportive enough to raise over $20,000, so that Zia Mohajerjasbi could recreate Mackmemore’s vision. Check out the official video for "Wings."

Logic - Mind Of Logic ft. Camille Michelle Gray (Video)

"I listen with attention to the judgement of all men; but so far as I can remember, I have followed none but my own." - Michael Eyquem de Montaigne

Check out the new dope visuals for Logics "Mind Of Logic." Also, I have no idea if Young Sinatra dropped, I remember it being pushed back then I just lost track.

Hopsin - Ill Mind Of Hopsin 4 (Video)

No clue if you guys remember Hopsin, but I put up a song by him awhile back, "Sag My Pants." If you don't remember him, it's no biggie, you'll remember him after this. I'm not 100 percent sure, but I think that this is a Tyler, The Creator diss, and Hopsin pretty much destroys him. His rhymes are smart and funny at the same time, it's great. Check out "Ill Mind Of Hopsin 4."

Too Much Raw - Sweet Love ft. Sosa

It feels like, soul music...with a hip-hop flow to it. Sorry I can't get the download link up, Im not using my regular computer. I'll put it up the DL link as soon as I can. Even without the link, still listen to it while searching for random things on the internet, it's worth it. Its all about love my people!

The Lessondary - Faded (Video)

Now, I've never heard of The Lessondary before, but my friend sent me this track and it's absolutely one of the chillest tracks I've heard. The Lessondary consists of 5 artists, Von Pea, Spec Boogie, Che Grand, DonWill, and Elucid. The instrumental reminds me of A Tribe Called Quest or The Pharcyde, I'm not sure why, but it does. Plus the lyrics makes it even better. Check out the visuals for "Faded" Shout out to Quincy for sending me the track.

JAMS - The Sky Is My Canvas (Mixtape)

The Sky Is My Canvas is finally released from the young Chi-Town artist JAMS. He's not just another kid talking about his dreams, he's attempting to make them come true, and so far, I think they will. Don't sleep on JAMS, he's not just your average young artist. Did I mention that he just graduated high school?

Alotta Cash - Gettin Younger (Prod. by Akentric)

This morning, my man Alotta Cash sent me his new track, might I say it's sick work. The beat is crazy and Alotta goes in with his lyrics. To me, I think it's a perfect song to roll one too, but that's just me. Hopefully this will hold everyone over until Hailey's Comet drops, which will be soon.

Kenny El - Before It All Happened (Mixtape)

Damn, I haven't heard my friend Kenny El for like 2 years til a track showed up on my ipod, I had to show the talent this kid has. I'll provide 2 tracks and his mini mixtape, Before It All Happened. When that tape was made, he was only 15-16, now Im pretty sure he's 17, but I don't really talk to him anymore. Anyway, check out Kenny El's talent.

Over 21 - Dream (Official Video)

These visuals are pretty sick, I wonder how long it took to make it.. I bet everyone was laughing for a bit when they got pushed with their eyes closed, I know I would be. Besides that, Over 21 consists of Kevin Marable and Broadus Palmer, both representatives of VA. Surprisingly, they both were solo artists until they crossed paths on Twitter, after that they linked up and the duo Over 21 was created. Here's the visuals for "Dream" off their mixtape The Morning After, be sure to check that out also.

Trae Tha Truth - I'm On ft. Lupe Fiasco, Big Boi, Wale, Wiz Khalifa & MDMA

Trae does a wonderful job on recruiting these artists for this track, everyone does their part and kills their verse. Lupe says "This is the most anticipated track off Trae's album Street King," which drops July 12th. Be sure to pick that up if you enjoyed this song. Until then, enjoy.
