Diggy Simmons - Copy, Paste [Video]


Royce Da 5'9" - On The Boulevard ft. Nottz & Adonis

Nickel Nine's album is finally coming together and this newest leak is certainly a precursor of what to look forward to when it gets released.

Chuuwee - Be Cool [Mixtape]

The much awaited on mixtape is finally here. Tracklist and download down bottom...

Chevy Woods - The Drive ft. Mac Miller (prod. Big Jerm)

Another Mac Miller and Big Jerm combo with this one being led by Chevy Woods.

J. Cole - Any Given Sunday Vol. 1 (Mixtape)

Before we get the Roc Nation artist's debut album, Cole World: A Sideline Story, we're blessed with a short, 5-track EP of new, unreleased material from the man himself. Read about some of the tracks and download below.

Shouts to: Complex

Game - Drug Test ft. Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre

Could be from Game's R.E.D. Album (August 23rd), but still sounds a bit unfinished.

Drake - Headlines (prod. Boi-1da)

First official single from Drake's upcoming Take Care album due out October 24th.

July 29, 2011

Travis Barker - Let's Go ft. Busta Rhymes, Twista, Yelawolf, & Lil Jon [Video]

I can't help but think of this song when I read the title and see the Lil Jon and Twista features.

Rapsody - I Do Belong

This track from the Jamla femcee didn't make the cut for her latest Thank H.E.R. Now mixtape, but it's one of 12 songs that will be featured on the followed project, Thank H.E.R. Now (The Darkside).

Shouts to: OS

Outasight - Figure 8 [Behind The Scenes]

Take a look at this preview to OU's music video for his latest EP's title track. Full video coming soon...

Game - Hood Morning (No Typo): Candy Corona's [Mixtape Trailer]

DJ Skee is hosting Game's upcoming, out-of-the-blue mixtape that he's dropping this Monday (August 1st). I've never heard of a Candy Corona before, but the idea of splashing grenadine into a bottle of Corona has my me daydreaming about what I'm gonna be doing later on tonight.

Fashawn Interview [Video]

Check out this interview with Fashawn by Amadeuz TV in which he talks about various topics such as working with J. Cole, Odd Future's "refreshing" sound, Higher Learning 2, and an upcoming album. It would be dope to hear a new Fash album before the end of the year. 

Frank Ocean - Thinking About You

Right when I think that the Odd Future member has another hit song on his hands with this one, I found out that it's only a demo intended for Roc Nation's own Bridget Kelly who will call it "Thinking About Forever". For those who don't know, Bridget Kelly has been seen singing "Empire State of Mind" with Jay-Z during his Blueprint 3 tour and at a 9/11 memorial show. With this possibly being her lead single for her debut album, expect great things from Ms. Kelly coming in the future.

Frank Ocean - Thinking About You
Bridget Kelly - Thinking About Forever

Shouts to: illroots & Complex

Game - Infrared (prod. Cool & Dre)

Still no official release date, but here's what must be the newest single from Game's The R.E.D. Album produced by the duo of Cool & Dre.

Jon Connor - Ain't No Future 2011 [Video]

Jon Connor's ode to Flint, Michigan's own MC Breed. 

The Kid Daytona - In The Meantime [Video]

Skyzoo - Boat Check In

"Throne visions and loops of Otis Redding/ sittin' on the dock of the bay, boat check in"

Skyzoo goes over Jay-Z and Kanye's newest single for the first track from his "Penny Freestyle Series".

Emilio Rojas - I'm On One Freestyle

Ahhhh falling behind on posts is no beuno. Good thing I'm sitting at a desk at work for the next 4 hours! Anyway, check out Emilio killing the hottest song of the summer.

July 26, 2011

One-2 - Half Man ft. Crooked I [Video]

"Treacherous Records presents One-2 "Half Man" Official Music Video Feat. Crooked I. Directed By Blind Productions. "Half Man" is off One-2's double EP History/Destiny which will be out later this year. The entire project is produced by Treacherous Records in house producer, Komplex."

Rick Ross In the Studio With Alchemist For "God Forgives, I Don't" [Video]

Now this is more like it. Hopefully Ricky is starting to stray away from that Lex Luger-esqe production and will continue to use producers like Alchemist for his next album.

DJ Premier Live from Headquarterz w/ Maffew Ragazino [Video]

Maffew and Primo could be a lethal connection.

"Maffew Ragazino is welcomed back on DJ Premier's Live from Headqcourterz on Sirius Xm with the 4th installment of his Bars R Us series "The Return". Maffew once again shows the world why Bars even when overlooked still should be essential in establishing your legacy to the throne!!! no??"

Stalley - Pound [Video]

Still getting some visuals from Stalley's Lincoln Way Nights.

Nas - More Than I Can Say ft. Keyshia Cole [Unreleased]

Actual Proof - Still Hotter Then July [Mixtape]

Here's another one of those highly anticipated July 26th projects we've all been waiting for. Download and check out the tracklist below that shows features from 9th Wonder, Chuuwee, Khrysis, and more...

Joell Ortiz - Night Train (remix) ft. Novel, Bun-B, & Tech N9ne

Black Hippy Freestyle on Toca Tuesdays [Video]

Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, and SchoolBoy Q link up with Tony Touch for a cypher. 

Donald Glover & Danny Pudi Interview [Video]

An interview from NBC.com shows the actors that play Troy and Abed from NBC's show "Community" discussing the show, handshakes, "Lost", & Childish Gambino. I just caught up on every season of "Community" last year and it quickly became one of my favorite shows on television. Very excited to see what the upcoming season brings.

Hoodie Allen - Leap Year [Mixtape]

Hoodie Allen's latest project, Leap Year, is finally available for download. Check out the tracklist after the jump which includes tracks like "Dreams Up", "The Chase Is On", and 11 others that I'm sure we'll be able to rock out to as the last month of summer falls upon us shortly.

July 25, 2011

Wale - No One Be Like You Freestyle

Chuuwee - What's The Word?

Leak after leak, I'm getting more excited about Chuuwee's upcoming Be Cool project dropping July 30th.

Spree Wilson - Lay It Down (prod. Shoden!1 & Spree Wilson)

I had to let go of my most anticipated track from the Uncontested EP that was released earlier today. Spree Wilson has the potential to be a future star in the music industry with this ability to sing, rap, write, and produce. You can certainly make comparisons between him and B.o.B, but if this man gets his break you can be sure that he'll be a famous name just like B.o.B.

Childish Gambino Performs New Song [Video]

Even though we haven't seen very much activity from Donald Glover's Twitter machine or website in the last few months or so, that may be a very good sign for any fans of his music. Before performing this brand new song during his Comic-Con show at The House of Blues in San Diego, he let the fans there know that he has been very busy as of late working on his new album (which some are saying is due out in September?). Just judging by the live footage of this track, I think we can expect a great project from Childish Gambino whenever it is he does decide to surface the finished product.

Actual Proof - Callin' Me ft. Median & Bluu Suede

A few great projects dropping tomorrow have got me hyped, including Act Proof's Hotter Than July presented by LRG and Jamla Records.

Smoke DZA - On The Corner ft. Bun B & Big K.R.I.T.

Rolling Stoned is the name of Smoke DZA's new album that he's readying to drop on August 30th. This track that features Bun B and Big K.R.I.T. was also produced by the latter.

PUMA & DJBooth.net Present: Uncontested EP

Tracklist and download underneath...

"Football's Back!"

Glad all of the bullsh*t about money has been put aside and a deal has finally been made. It will be interesting to see any deals being made in the next few weeks as teams are going to struggle to get their 90-man training camp roster together. Read the full article at ESPN.

Pill - The Diagnosis [Mixtape]

The latest offering from one of MMG's newer artists. Tracklist and download after the jump...

July 23, 2011

Wax - Two Wheels [Video]

A different sound from Wax on this one from his Scrublife mixtape.

Wiz Khalifa - Proceed ft. Curren$y & Big Sean

This time with Cardo on the beat, The How Fly Boys (which is what they're going by now) drop their 5th banger in a row.

July 22, 2011

Jay-Z & Kanye West - Watch The Throne [Documentary]

As August 2nd grows closer, here's some behind the scenes footage of Hov and Ye working on their upcoming album.

Jay Rock - Say Wassup ft. Ab-Soul, SchoolBoy Q, & Kendrick Lamar (aka Black Hippy) [Video]

An extra long video from Black Hippy for us to enjoy on this brutally hot day in New York.

Mac Miller - Best Day Ever [Video]

Title track from Mac's last mixtape. The intro to this video is classic.

Wiz Khalifa - Dot Dot Dot ft. Curren$y & Big Sean

Ahhhh, yes. These dudes are 4 for 4 thus far and has anybody else noticed that Big Jerm has been on the boards for all four as well? Dope.

Katy Perry - E.T. ft. Kanye West (Larry Kidd Drum Cover) [Video]

This video was just shot over to me by the man J-R. He'll be playing a show at Antonio's in Washingtonville, NY on Thursday with a band by the name of Tell A Tall Tale, whose drummer made this dope cover to one of Katy Perry's current hits. Gotta keep my eyes and ears out for these guys in the future.

Actual Proof - Get It Done (prod. 9th Wonder)

It seems like there's so much great talent coming from North Carolina these days, including this duo, and 9th Wonder has them all under his wing as part of his IWWMG. Act Proof's upcoming LRG/Jamla Records presented project, Still Hotter Than July, drops sooner then later.

Wale - Globetrotter ft. 2 Chainz

Wale's been busy lately releasing new music with his upcoming MMG debut album Ambition finally getting a release date of Novemeber 1st. It kind of annoys me that his lyrical content sounds more like something Ross would use rather then sounding like his tracks from Attention: Deficit.

Smoke DZA - Cool Sh*t ft. The Kid Daytona [Video]

Yet another hip hop video featuring artists golfing? At least this one has some comedy to it. Off DZA's T.H.C. album.

Young Jeezy - Shake Life

This official single from Jeezy's TM103 has already got the Twitter world buzzing since it's release just a few hours ago. I haven't really been feeling too much from Jeezy since his last album, but it seems like this kinda beat is out of the ordinary for him which makes it sound... different (and in a good way).

Add-2 - Iron Mic

Add-2 comes hard for this first track off his upcoming Save.Our.Souls. album.

Kyle Lucas & Captain Midnite - Take It Apart ft. Murder Dice

Kyle Lucas is getting back together with Captain Midnite for a follow up project to I Brought Dead Flowers To A Funeral. The new album will be called The Sky Is Falling And I'm Fine and is looking at an August 2nd release.

Grynch - Mister Rogers (prod. Jake One)

It's been a minute since we've heard anything from the Seattle rapper. Lovin' the hook and artwork for this one.

2011 MTV Video Music Awards Nominees

The nominees for this year's MTV VMAs have been released. It's very interesting to see Tyler, The Creator up there a few times amongst Bruno Mars, Adele, and others. Hit the jump to see entire list of nominees...

Hoodie Allen - The Chase Is On [Video]

"It's Hoodie! It's Hoodie!" After a little bit of wait, we're blessed with Hoodie Allen's first single from his upcoming Leap Year mixtape dropping July 26th. If you're feeling this track as much as I am then go cop it  from iTunes immediately.

DOWNLOAD: Hoodie Allen - The Chase Is On

311 - Time Bomb

The boys from Omaha are back! I'm two days late on this post, but it is because I have been enjoying the sweet sounds of 311's new album Universal Pulse which dropped on 7/19. This album is definitely different than any of their previous albums. It seems to be a hybrid of Transistor and Uplifter, mixing hard guitar with catchy pop-like rhythms and lyrics. Nonetheless it's a solid album, but it would be nice if there were more than 8 songs though. With that being said, rock on!

July 20, 2011

Wiz Khalifa - Weed Brownies ft. Curren$y & Big Sean

Go figure, my wishes have come true. With this being the third track to released from this trio in the last three days, HipHopDX is reporting that they are actually working on a collaborative mixtape. No actual release date has been confirmed.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Wings [Video]

For those of you out there who are unfamiliar with Macklemore: get familiar. His heart-felt lyrics turn his raps into stories that make your favorite rapper's finest rhymes seem childish. While you'll notice right away that the topic here is kicks, the lesson is much deeper. Check the video out under the jump...

Pusha T - Trouble On My Mind ft. Tyler, The Creator [Video]

Seems like Tyler is rubbing off on Pusha T [||] cause these visuals for our "Song of the Week" are very Odd Future-esque. Fear Of God 2: Let Us Pray is dropping August 23rd, so be ready.

Jay-Z & Kanye West - Otis ft. Otis Redding

Now this is more like it! A dope, soulful cut from Hov and Ye's Watch The Throne featuring the legendary Otis Redding (RIP). Full album drops August 1st so pre-order now.

Rich Mahogany - It Gotta Be (Rich Mahogany) [Video]

Never heard of the kid but he's got some bars. To continue the Mac Miller comparisons that everybody's making on the YouTube c-section (I fuckin' hate reading those things) he kinda reminds me of a mix between Mac and Action Bronson. Maybe it's just that red hair? haha. Look out for his Most Slept On Nightmare project to be dropping soon. 

Cris Cab - Take You Away [Video]

Off Cris Cab's Foreword EP that's available now.

Gym Class Heroes - Stereo Love ft. Adam Levine [Lyric Video]

As I had previously stated, these lyric videos are just everywhere now. At least this one has some type of other visuals to go along with it.

Eminem, Royce Da 5'9", & Bruno Mars Shooting Video For "Lighters"

According to Idolator, a video is being shot for one of the stand out tracks featuring Bruno Mars from Bad Meets Evil's Hell: The Sequel album. The music video is being directed by Rich Lee, who is also responsible for Shady's "Not Afraid" video.

Chiddy Bang - Old Ways [Video]

Chiddy Bang linked up with Karmaloop for a video to track 8 from their first album, The Preview. Their upcoming album, Breakfast, is set to drop soon and the first single, "Mind Your Manners", is now available on iTunes. 

Emilio Rojas - Home

The second leak form DJBooth.net and PUMA's upcoming Undefeated mixtape comes from non-other then Emilio Rojas.

Chip Tha Ripper - Me Too ft. Like (of Pac Div)

Wiz Khalifa - Flowers ft. Curren$y & Big Sean

Similar to yesterday, Wiz let's another one go with features from Big Sean and Curren$y. Collaborative project in the works possibly? That'd be crazy. One can only hope.

Jimmy Fallon & The Roots - History Of Rap ft. Justin Timberlake (Part 2) [Video]

This was pretty dope. After seeing Justin Timberlake do this on top of all of his music and his guest spots on SNL, there's no doubt in my mind that he's one of the best entertainers in the world. I guess I have to go back and find the video to Part 1 as well.

Consequence - Crying Broke ft. Rapper Big Pooh & Elzhi

Another one from Movies On Demand 3, which should be coming soon.

July 19, 2011

Mike Posner - Shut Your Mouth ft. Rusko

It's been too long since we've heard some new Mike Posner. Come to think of it, his album dropped nearly a year ago! Damn, where does time go? Anyway, here's a new one that I hope will become a part of some new compilation.

David Guetta - Little Bad Girl ft. Taio Cruz & Ludacris [Video]

Fabolous - Pain [Video]

Fabolous' The S.O.U.L. Tape is available now.

Neako - Validus (prod. J. Dilla)

Some new Neako over Dilla production. Hell yes.

Shouts to: UHTN

Joell Ortiz - Seven Deuce

Am I the only one that thinks he looks a tab bit like Jerry Ferrara (Turtle from Entourage)?

ScienZe - September [Video]

ScienZe is already getting ready to drop a new project on September 12th called When Skies Fall. "September" serves as the first track from that project.

Phil Ade - A Different World [Mixtape]

After a few sick leaks, 2dopeboyz presents Phil Ade's newest project with features from Mac Miller, U-N-I, Black Cobain, Killa Kyleon, and more. Tracklist and download after the jump.

JR Mint - The Bakery ft. Smoke DZA [Video]

Charles Hamilton - Sober Karaoke [Album]

Let the unreleased Charles Hamilton leaks continue. This album was supposed to be released all the back in 2005, but HFHH somehow got their hands on it and let it go to the masses. When I see "2005 Charles Hamilton" I immediately get hyped thinking about the type of music he was putting out back before he made it onto the XXL Magazine Freshman cover. So, I'm really hoping to hear that kinda old, Sonic sound from Charles when I finish the download. Check out the tracklist and download it for your self after the jump.

Beastie Boys - Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win [Video]

The Beastie Boys come hard with yet another awesome video. This time, they include puppets, yetis, guns, and explosions in an 11-minute video directed by Spike Jonze. Hit the jump to watch the video...

Hopsin - #IllmindOfHopsin 4 [Video]

Tyler diss? Yikes. I guess that's one way to get some extra recognition nowadays.

Royce Da 5'9" - Legendary ft. Travis Barker

Here's the intro track to Royce's Success Is Certain album that's set to drop August 9th.
