Tomorrow, the furiously talented and playfully weird Chicago teenager Chance The Rapper is due to release Acid Rap , quite possibly the year's most anticipated mixtape. Chance has already earned himself a ton of attention from his videos for " Juice ," " Good Ass Intro ," and " NaNa ," and now he's got a new illRoots -directed clip for the mixtape track "Smoke Again." On the track, Chance joins forces with a deeply simpatico rapper: The Black Hippy bugout master Ab-Soul. And in the video, he shows off CGI-enlarged eye-pupils and ghostrides a Toyota Camry. Watch [...]
The creative and eclectic lyricist that is Chance the Rapper continues to build hype around his soon-to-be mixtape Acid Rap , due out This Tuesday the 30th. A couple days prior, the dude releases some straight-forward but detail-oriented visuals for the vocally-assisted "Smoke Again". Directed by the multi-discipline illRoots crew, the video's laced with trippy elements over assorted shots of Chance balling out in a black Camry and the featured Ab-Soul spitting bars a midst appropriate clouds of smoke.

The Harlemite Ro Ransom drops the latest visual off of the Ransomania mixtape from July of last year. The title CM Punk references the WWE star by the same name, he's outspoken, controversial and all around gives zero fucks. See you at Wrestlemania Undertaker! [ illroots ]
Sir Michael Rocks is here with a new track titled "Money Came." With his latest project, BANCO on the way, TPC's OG is giving fans a peep of the heat that did not make the cut. Peep below. via IllRoots
If there's anyone that deserves to nuke the XXL building, that would be X.V. I've been following the Wichita, Kansas artist since the 40 days, 40 nights days series. Back when producer SEVEN was the Robin to his Batman. Years have flown by, and still the much talked about "Kid With A Green Backpack" album has yet to see the light of day. Will this be the year? It's no telling. Even though he's been quiet, Vizzy released something new for compadre The Awesome Sound's birthday. It's not lively celebration music, but enjoyable nonetheless.
Music without substance typically ends up at the top of the charts, played out on radio stations, and heralded by critics, (i.e. Future's auto-tuned hooks on every radio hit), but [...]
With Molly being the new flavor of the week, there's been a vast influx of songs about the drug lately. Problem decides to poke some fun at the situation, releasing a new song titled "My Last Molly Song Ever I Promise." He even brings along a few experts with him to discuss the topic one final time in Trinidad Jame$ and Gunplay . Like all new fads, it has to end somewhere, and this may be the final stop on the Molly train.
With his upcoming mixtape just a day away, Virginia-bred Pusha T drops off a dope single with D.C.'s own Wale . While most of Push's music as of late has held a heavy and aggressive traphouse feel, he slows things down on "Only You Can Tell It" with a laid back, but piercing, track dedicated to those he feels envy his success. Both emcees showcase their styles on this one complementing each other perfectly in the process. Check it below and look for his free tape, Wrath of Caine, here at TMN tomorrow!
Richmond, VA native Nickelus F and Drake unite for a laid back joint over mellowed electric guitar instrumentals courtesy of Jake One . The two worked together previously on "A.M. 2 P.M." which was featured on Drake's impressive Room For Improvement mixtape in 2006. This latest work is on Nickelus's newest project Vices , which is available for free download. Drake was in Toronto recently shooting a new video with famed Director X for his single "Started From The Bottom". The rapper has even commissioned a massive billboard along the highway leading into the city [...]

Chicago spitter Dally Auston drops a cut with his Save Money brother Vic Mensa (of Kids These Days.) This joint is bananas, C-Sick absolutely snapped on the beat. Such an old-school feel front start to finish on this one. Off Auston's upcoming project The Wood , dropping this winter.
Say what you want about Pusha T , but there's no denying that he puts 110% into every verse he crafts. He's got a fire and intensity about him that's unmatched by anyone else that dares to pick up the mic in his presence. MMG bawse, Rick Ross , does his best to keep up as the two Southern emcees flaunt their wealth throughout the track. Considering how prominent of a part he's played as part of G.O.O.D. Music since he signed back in 2010, it's hard to believe we're still waiting on Pusha's first full solo album, [...]
Newcomer Trinidad Jame$ recruits fellow ATLiens, T.I. , Young Jeezy and 2 Chainz to hop on the star-studded remix of his hit track, "All Gold Everything." The track was premiered by DJ Holliday on Atanta's Streetz 94.5, hence why we have to settle for the clean version for now. Even with the censors though, it's easy to get addicted to this slowed down, Southern-cooked anthem. You know this one' s definitely LeBron James approved .
The title of this list is somewhat of a misnomer. These are not so much artists that should embark on whatever “everyone loves a good comeback” type of quest that the title might imply and LL Cool J told us a long time ago not to call it that, but rather these are artists whom we expect and hope will reestablish themselves in the year ahead. Some are examples of wishful thinking, others spent 2012 understandably earning that tour money, or fathering their first child and bringing a pro basketball franchise to their hometown. Regardless of their reasons and the [...]
Last month, we learned the first single from Lil Wayne 's forthcoming album I Am Not A Human Being II would be his 2 Chainz collaboration "Rich As Fuck." Now a low quality leak has hit the web, but the crappy rip actually adds to the song's haziness. Just how minimalist is this beat? It completely drops out for a good five seconds both times 2 Chainz enters the fray for the hook. As for Weezy, his verses comprise witty boasts about sex, drugs, [...]
As easy as it is for the three artists mentioned above to get on your nerves, you have to admit that they have an affinity for making some pretty catchy tunes. For his latest single, Weezy enlists both Drake and Future to share duties on the chorus, while he occupies the rest of the Mike WiLL produced backdrop with some trash talking and singing of his own. What else would you expect from a new Lil Wayne track? For those interested, you can find this one on Wayne's upcoming album, I Am Not a Human [...]

Mac Miller has been keeping his buzz steady on the interwebs with each newly leaked track. Recently he teamed up with Waka Flocka Flame to drop some heat and a new sound with the DJ Dani produced single "Dog Pound". This chill, laid-back is not only enticing with its haunting background vocals and smooth drum rip, but definitely unexpected from the usually turnt-up rapper Flocka. Both emcees come correct over this organic beat. Although this track will not be featured on Miller's upcoming effort, it is available as a free download.
As he prepares for the release of his sophomore studio album, Wiz Khalifa recruits Harlem veteran Cam'ron for the latest glimpse into the anticipated project. "Bluff" carries a light, hazy feel with Wiz's most recent staggered flow accompanied by a strong, gritty verse from the leader of the Diplomats . Per usual, Khalifa's melodies are on point as well. The releases from O.N.I.F.C. thus far have been of high quality and diverse styles, offering hope for any loyal fans who may have been put off by his debut. Stream below and make sure to grab the album [...]
