Nas, once again, delivers a heat rock from his upcoming LP Life Is Good. With Large Professor providing background vocals and No I.D. on the beat, Nas proves that real Hip-Hop is far from dead. In his own words, “Locomotive” is “for my trapped in the 90’s n***as.” Check out the locomotive grove of “Locomotive” below and look for Life [...]
Pusha T and Kanye West are quite the duo, and with their newest track released entitled “New God,” we are firmly reminded why.

Here’s the official remix to Curren$y’s “Jet Life.” Having heard Young Jeezy’s verse already due to a previous leak, this remix was probably released a lot earlier than planed. “Jet Life” features Curren$y’s long affiliated business partner Lil Wayne and the catchy snowman himself Young Jeezy, check the track out below!
Big Boi has just given us a little tease of his new second solo album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. Dj Greg Street got the green light from Big Boi to premier "Gossip," the first single off his LP last night. "Gossip" is quite the southern delight. With features from the UGK veterans and the southern rap prodigy Big K.R.I.T., [...]
When I first heard about DJ Khaled, I actually thought he was a legitimate DJ. I was wrong. DJ Khaled's innate skill to network and scream "DJ Khaled" on everyone of "his" songs has got him another hit. Enlisting Hit-Boy on the beat, accompanied by Rick Ross and Kanye West, "I Wish You Would" mixes all the artist's favorable traits. [...]
In a music scene where people are trying to emerge left and right, we find ourselves meeting Fergus Miller, or better known by his moniker Bored Nothing. Coming from Melbourne, Australia, Bored Nothing’s self-titled EP brings nostalgia of 90’s washed out indie-rock. Unlike many artists who are constantly pushing to “get that break,” in a recent interview with Triple J [...]
As Lana Del Rey and A$AP Rocky continue to take over my blog, the newest cut from Rocky's much anticipated album LongLiveA$AP has been released. While it's still uncertain whether or not this is the final cut of the track, Lana Del Rey and A$AP Rocky sound great together. "Ridin'" is a great cohesion of the two artist's style, and [...]
Founder A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs of Fool's Gold have created a great free sampler series entitled Clubhouse. Enlisting some names you may and may not know from the Fool's Gold roster, this is a great way to get a better feel for the record label. Download it below.
When Summer comes around, you can't help but to listen to music that compliments the beautiful weather and everything that surrounds it. Fortunately for us, Sydney surfer-rockers Sures has released a new EP entitled Stars that is quite the treat. Their short-but-sweet EP only has five tracks and the classic surf-pop jam of "Poseidon" stands out from the rest. "Poseidon" [...]
