Raekwon and Nas: Rich & Black – Video:

leave a comment »

Fresh off the LRG train, Raekwon and Nas team up for the video to “Rich and Black,” which 1. looks like it was a lot of fun to shoot and 2. proves that Nas is really sounding hungry right now. The newest single from the criminally slept on Shaolin vs. Wu Tang project, it gives you just a taste of how amazing this album really is.
Now I need to know why this isnt playing on MTVJams. Hrrrrm.

Enjoy, dammit.

I didnt know that The Cool Kids had a date on their new album. Or that its dropping like, next week. LoL.
Swipe from the kids over at Potholes. Because they’re awesome and I’m lazy.

The Cool Kids are back promoting their July 12 release, When Fish Ride Bicycles. Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish look to come together on an 11 track, playground four square battle, chock-full of cherry bombs and Pharrell beats. For now the duo swirly the N.E.R.D.’s production, “Summer Jam”, featuring Star Trak soul-singer Maxine Ashley. It follows the summer track formula: catchy drum pattern, stabbing guitar and smooth e-piano. It’s a glass of icy lemonade at 100 degrees outside with Neptunes flavor. “Gas Station”, has a Southern a la Outkast, Killer Mike, and Dungeon Family feeling. The track helps itself by adding UGK’s Bun B to the mix. Both songs are easy listening, cool kid, summer anthems. Stay chill in the heat by listening to these tracks. [via]

Hit the skip to stream the tracks.

Enjoy.

The new Jean Grae Mixtape does not suck at all. Download:

Jean Grae, one of the illest females to ever do it and not receive any credit for it, finally refocuses on her music and releases a fairly decent mixtape for us all to enjoy. I havent even listened to it all the way through yet and “Cookies or Comas” is already pretty certifiable at this point. But then again, its Jean Grae.

Click here to pickup the mixtape, and enjoy.

Von Pea announces New Tanya Morgan Project; "You & What Army?!" I geek out inside.

leave a comment »

While we’re pointing out Twitter announcements, dont know if I’m allowed to point this one out but considering Von Pea announced it a few days ago and I’ve just been running behind on getting to all the musicawesomes in my life… I might as well point out more new music coming from Tanya Morgan, my favorite boys.
Now when a musician says September, that usually means a month or two after that. Regardless, after that “Without Hands” track they just dropped, I’m just happy to know that theres more good music on the way.

Click on the links for more, and enjoy.

Shaun Boothe returns with more hits. Link:

leave a comment »

So remember how I geeked out over that Shaun Boothe record that used that awesome sample from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody? Well he’s returned (not that he ever left) with some new freshness for you to enjoy. “Do It For You,” his newest track hitting the internets is a uplifting dedication from Shaun to the art of Hip Hop and Music in general (“they say theres no money in music/so you should KNOW I do it for you”). You can check out the song and a short video with him taking you through the heart of his native Canadas by checking the YouTubes and stream/download the song by clicking here.

Find more music from Shaun on his YouTube page… and enjoy.

Theres waaaay too much new Yummy Common Music dropping to be Ignored (click here).
Direct Swipe from Potholes:

We finally have the full version Common’s “Ghetto Dreams” featuring Nas. This is the first official leak off Common’s upcoming album The Dreamer, The Believer. The track is produced by Chicago’s own No I.D. When fakeshoredrive.com premiered the snippet back in late May it definitely had all of us excited for Common’s upcoming album. After dropping “Summer Madness” and now “Ghetto Dreams” Common is definitely back and I don’t mean the guy who released that Universal Mind Control album. Oddly enough it was Nas who leaked the new track. No complaints from me.You can stream “Ghetto Dreams” below and download it after the jump.
