Whatchu know about being a fashion icon? Not as much as me. Check out those striped overalls with the fire apple name tag. Anyway, this site is about music right?

Jarren Benton releases new single off upcoming album

Jarren Benton is a very skilled lyricist and his verse on this song shows it. He absolutely rips this piano-infused, grimy beat. His features, Locksmith and Joyner Lucas, also came to play, delivering two equally dope verses.

Freddy vs Jason is on the way!

Fab and Jada are two of New York’s finest on the mic and they are teaming up to create a collaborative album coming soon. The duo dropped a new song, which is a freestyle over Future’s “Wicked” instrumental, to smooth things over until the album drops.

J Dilla’s posthumous album arrives next week

Legendary producer/rapper J Dilla passed away a little over ten years ago but his music lives on. This new track “Gangsta Boogie” will be featured on the album and features Snoop Dogg and Kokane. Most of the album was recorded around 2002 so expect these “new” tracks to be a welcoming throwback.

The legend Riff Raff drops new HEAT

Riff Raff may be one of the most absurd people to ever walk this earth but the dude is an entertainer. His new track “Carlos Slim” features his hilarious boastful bars and an absolute banger of a beat produced by 808 Mafia. Don’t hate it till you give it a chance.

Havoc and Alchemist are cooking up a new project

This for all the fans of classic hip-hop. Two of the best at what they do will be dropping a new project in late May that is sure to be great. “Maintain (Fuck How You Feel)” is the first track off said project and is a sign of good things to come.

Meek Mill drops “Trap Vibes”

“Trap Vibes” is a freestyle over the “Summer Sixteen” and “Panda” instrumentals. It is typical Meek bragging about himself and the stuff he has and talking shit. Nothing wrong with that, he knows his lane and for the most part stays in it. This is definitely hype.

Chance The Rapper’s brother Taylor releases “Straight From Heaven”

We all know Chance is dope but his brother isn’t bad either. Taylor raps in a very similar style to Chance but adds his unique touch to it.

Dee-1 recruits Lupe and Big K.R.I.T. for this fire remix

This song is hooooooottttttt. The beat is flames and each artist goes in. What more could you ask for?

Legends to legendary things

Black Thought and Styles P team up and give us “Making a Murderer.” Black Thought is one of the best artists of all time and Styles P rarely disappoints. You might need rap genius to catch all the bars on this one.

Chris Brown drops the 2nd remix to “Fuck You Back to Sleep”

The first remix of this song featured Usher and Zayn Malik. This one features August Alsina, Miguel, and Trey Songz…three of the games best R&B artists. This is what sex sounds like in the form of music.

ScHoolboy Q is back at it with “Groovy Tony”

Great news this week as ScHoolboy Q drops the lead single off his upcoming album. It’s just what you expect from Q: hard lyrics, mean delivery, dope song.

Teddy Pain is at it again

With all the new T-Pain I’ve been posting, you’d think it was 2007. It isn’t, at least I don’t think it is, but we are still being blessed with new music from the autotune goat. New album coming soon.

Debut album from Gallant releases

I recently discovered Gallant, just in time to hear his debut album “Ology” and I am excited. This dude’s voice is amazing and he should be one of your favorite R&B artists in no time after giving this a listen.

That’s about it for this week. Drake also had about three songs leak that may or may not be on his upcoming album. I can’t post any of them because of copyright issues but to be honest, none of them were outstanding. “Pop Style” was the best one, which features Kanye West and ONE bar from Jay-Z -____- See you next week with some more new music, including a couple album releases I’ve been patiently waiting for.
