Video : Grindin | August Alsina

It's timing to all this shxt...

Tight shit.
Literally out of nowhere, Alsina drops a new visual/song that you won't find on his current album, Testimony. The song addresses his injury and acoma, the shade from the industry, and his persistence to continue grinding even harder. My attention was completely captured for the entire 3:40 time frame (about 3 times back to back). Not only is the song hard AF, shorty just does something to me...
Watch below::
"I be fightin for all I get..."

Gotti | Lil Wayne x The Lox

And if I need something
{I} call Baby...

Fourth release from Wayne's upcoming album, Carter V, which was also recently announced it has been pushed back. I'm not sure what's going on with Young Money at the moment with all the push backs and commotion but hopefully they will get it together. Check 'Gotti' out below::

Pay For It | Jay Rock x Kendrick Lamar x Chantal

Now when I speak
Them pupils’ll dilate…

New music from TDE's Jay Rock. I'm not sure where this will end up, but the track is... I can't find the word to describe (in a good way). Judge for yourself. Listen below::

Only | Nicki Minaj x Drake x Lil Wayne x Chris Brown

Nicki Minaj : I never fxcked Wayne, I never fxcked Drake. All my life for fuck sake. If I did, I’d menage with them and let them eat my ass like a cupcake...
Drake : I never fxcked Nicki because she got a man, but when that's over I'm first in line...
Wayne : I never fxcked Nicki and that's fxcked up. If I did fxck, she would be fxcked up. Whoever is hittin, ain't hittin it right, cuz she act like she need dxck in her life...

This highly anticipated track hit the internet waves yesterday, but for some reason each time it was removed. I think it's safe to post today. While the production vaguely gave me hints of 'Senile', the lyrics are on another level. Nicki kills this, and the gimmick for the beginning of each verse (as seen above) was actually a great idea.
This is a cut from her upcoming third solo album, The Pinkprint, which was originally slated for release Black Friday but has recently been announced it is delayed for release until December 15th.
Listen to 'Only' below::

Video : Keep Doin' That (Rich Bitch) | Rick Ross x R. Kelly

She make it rain like a nxgga
We got more money to get...

This is one of those songs that on my first listen, I banged with it immediately.  Ross stood by his tweets and released the video today as promised.  With a party of luxury and women in the mansion of former boxing champ Evander Holyfield, you'll spot several cameos of those who came out and showed love - T.I., Rocko, Jermaine Dupri, Nipsey Hussle, Jeezy, DJ Khaled and more.

Kanye's 'Guilt Trip' on 'Yeezus' was for 'Watch the Throne'; has unfinished Jay-Z Verse

As the Watch the Throne album continued to progress you can tell it wouldn’t fit. It didn’t make the album..'
Isn't that interesting. During the A3C ProAudio conference this year, Producer S1 (Symbolyc One) sat down with DJBooth TV and revealed that Kanye's "Guilt Trip" on the Yeezus album was actually originally recorded for the "Watch the Throne" album. The original version even has a few bars from Jay on it. My... I would've loved to hear that. Listen/Watch S1 tell the story below::

Ordinary Love Shit Part 4 (Keep Running) | Joe Budden

Say I’m all about hoes
When I’m all about you
Even with I’m with my hoes
I tell em all about you…

Joey and Drake are most certainly trying to take me to 'the place' today with these tracks *reverts back to countless times of rotating the previous Ordinary Love Shit's. No bueno.
Nevertheless, Part 4 is here...and Joey snaps. Built up hurt seems to always make great music.
"And you want me to chase you, but it's easier for me to replace you". Precisely.

'Never Stop Exploring' : North Face Pop Up Shop Disappearing Floor Challenge

Crazy. As I perused the net this morning, I came across this. North Face held a pop up shop in Korea, which seemed like any normal pop-up event until the switch powered. Shoppers felt a rush of emotions (scared, nervous, wtf, etc.) as the floor they were standing on began to disappear. This disappearing floor forced shoppers to climb the wall; the wall that most probably never paid any serious mind to until then. After climbing, the product of choice dropped from the ceiling for them to retrieve. While I probably would've had censors on all my captions as the floor removed, once you realize what's happening it turns into a lot of fun. Very cool idea. Watch the experience below::
Sn: I think after all was said and done, they received the product for free. I think...

King shit.
Lion Paw.

Apparently, I am still playing catch up o_o. Slippppinnn. Niko Is released a new vid/music over a motnh ago and I'm just now seeing it. Directed by Chris Smith, the simple but artistic video compliments the Thanks Joey produced track well.
I reported in Dec 2013, that Brutus was coming soon, which features Cyhi da Prince, Talib Kweli, and Kool A.D. As an update since it's close to being a full year later, the project has been pushed back twice.
Niko says the project has been finished for two years but they are just 'polishing and making it better'. Read more about Brutus and how Niko Is met Talib Kweli here.

She so bad...
I don't know what to do with her...

It's a lot of rambling going on lol. I'll decode the words sooner or later in my spare. At one point it's hard to decipher which rapper is rapping. You can tell the influence both have on each other. Nevertheless, Thugga mah nigha and I like this one. Here's the first single from Rich Gang's upcoming album, Rich Gang 2.

40 Mill | Tyga (Produced by. Kanye West x Mike Dean)

I don't wanna be famous...

With the negative energy of a 'beef' with his current label, twitter wars with 'label mates' etc., there wasn't a more perfect time to take the shine off that and release some new music. Even better that T-Raww released the highly anticipated track produced by Ye'. The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty set to release November 18th. Check out '40 Mill' below::

Time Warp... 2004 : Whole City Behind Us | Kanye West x Game x Ludacris

Circa 2004.
Time Warp hasn't been posted since June 3rd. That's crazy. It doesn't even feel that long.
What better way to bring back the series than to start with this banger here. Arguably, one of Ye's top 10 productions thus far. Bananas.

Sn: Tony, you know on your birthday… Saturday.. I had the worst day. I talked to you about it. You, also, know why I didn’t make your usual birthday post. I talked to you about that too. Nevertheless, I couldn’t go forth without dedicating anything to you in lieu of it. Remember, when I wrote a whole 16 about you and I ‘started from the bottom’ story and spit it to you? I don’t even know the regular words to this joint anymore but my own lol… kind of like Hov’s ‘Allure’.
I hope Jesus threw you a bomb party up there.. I hope my Grandma Gladys pulled up too ;-) The whole city still behind us. Til we meet again.. Forever.. Love always, ‘T.I.’.

Mixtape : STN MTN / KAUAI | Childish Gambino

***UPDATE - KAUAI was removed as it is available for purchase on iTunes. STN MTN, however, is available for free download- featured below.

Semen on her stomach
That's her 2nd coming......

I listened to this about five times yesterday. One because I was too busy working to find something else to listen to and Two, I wanted to give it a fair chance before I formed an opinion. I was really looking forward to the release of this when it was mentioned about 2 1/2 weeks ago. It arrived and it was the opposite of what I hoped for. While I, then, and continually find myself going ape inside over the 'Southern Hospitality' flow opener on STN MTN, I ultimately found myself gravitating more to KAUAI. That in itself is odd, for me that is. I posted them both below. Listen after the jump::

Lil Kim Stops by the Breakfast Club; clears air about Nicki Minaj & K. Michelle, talks Motherhood and more...

I'm glad I listened to this interview. As a Kim fan who has nearly all of her albums, I felt a type of way of her always coming at Nicki.... in which I expressed on a post 4 years ago. However, I NEVER heard her side of the story until today. My outlook on the entire situation has changed as well as my thoughts on Kim's behavior. What made this more interesting was Kim's manager, Big Fendi (who also use to be Nicki Minaj's manager), got on the mic and spilled allllll the tea. The story of he and Nick and more was broken down.
In a previous interview just the other week, K. Michelle visited the Breakfast Club and had some things to say about Kim. Kim addressed those as well ... "That chick is a bag of pecans" lol.
Aside from all the drama, which takes up majority of the interview, Kim touches on motherhood, her upcoming documentary, and relationship with Maino. Watch/listen below::

{Personal Post} Photos :: "Free Angela" Screening/Discussion | Washington, DC

”The victories we do win are not always the victories we fought for.
........But we should celebrate them, none the less” – Angela Davis

I've seen this film before. However, there was NO way I was going to miss Angela Davis speaking here. She is not only one of my most favorite people in the entire world, but my closest know how dear the place for her in my heart is. She is MY Doctor King. You better believe. The day someone sent me the info.. I rsvp'd within the next 10 minutes.

(L to R)
Shola Lynch {actress, filmaker}
Angela Y. Davis
Rhea L. Combs {curator of photography and film at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African American History and Culture, head of the museum's Center for African American Media Arts (CAAMA)

That entire day was hectic, but seemed to not matter any longer once I arrived at the church she was speaking at. The homie Withers was already seated waiting for me. I was excited... overly excited... but never expected the reaction I had. When I saw Angela Davis walk out, not only did I have the hugest smile from ear to ear... but strangely I wanted to cry. My eyes were super watery. I was that damn happy.
