Joell Ortiz – “God Forbid” (Prod. By HeatMakerz)

SHHHHIIIIDDD!!! Hate on Joey O if you want. Just do it somewhere else. The dude do the bangers! Think this latest drop from him (over the Heatmakerz beat) could be anything less than super-lyrical and super-dope? “God Forbid” maannnnn!

Future – “Mask Off” feat. Kendrick Lamar (Remix)

Not gonna ask if you’ve been checking for that Future joint “Mask Off” since it came out. In the end, among us folks on here, the argument ends up being fruitless. However, a K. Dot appearance on a remix to “Mask Off”… we can talk about that… after y’all listen.

And yeah, Kendrick snapped!

Sabrina Claudio – “Unravel Me” (Video)

Minimalist visual concept with seasoned with just the right amount of special effects; so very appropriate for this song. Good recipe for delivering a song that oozes with sensual goodness. It’s like the basic poundcake made by a sexy chef that brings the flavor when she cooks up the good stuff.

Sabrina Claudio singing “Unravel Me” in this is part presentation for a single; part challenge, in understanding what the singer wants to tell us. Enjoy the whole thing!

Jay 305 – “When You Say” feat. Omarion (Prod. By Cardo)

Save the small talk, girl. I ain’t no counselor.
Jay 305

Between the words of Jay 305, the hum of the Cardo beat, and the baller crooning of Omarion… Gotta call this joint ‘pimpin!’ “When You Say” something ‘smooth with the roughness’ to the ladies, you probably speak on it like this. Listen.

Kool G Rap – “Capitol Hill” feat. Cormega x Sheek Louch x Manolo Rose (Prod. By MoSS)

Most n!ggas ain’t living to see 20 pass…

When you think about the Golden Era Hip-Hop legends who the legends build on, you think about Kool G Rap.

(You probably knew that, but tell somebody who doesn’t know. Promote proper Hip-Hop history.)

Just take that line above and do the math. Nas is a G.O.D.M.C. no d-o-u-b-t. Remember his line from “Illmatic” where he started

I woke up early on my born day
I’m 20. It’s a blessing…

Yeah, 20 years pass and we get that Kool G line above. But ask Nas about G Rap, who came before him, and bet money you hear respect. Reflect on that full circle legend sh!t and puff one if ya got one and get down like that. Do it while playing this “Capitol Hill” (featuring Cormega, Sheek Louch, and Manolo Rose) from the Queens legend Kool G Rap. Single off the forthcoming “Return Of The Don” LP (pre-order link on iTunes below).

KOOL G RAP – CAPITOL HILL FEAT. CORMEGA X SHEEK LOUCH X MANOLO ROSE (PROD. BY MOSS) | RETURN OF THE DON (PRE-ORDER)

Nas – “Systematic” (Prod. By DJ Shadow) [Video]

Making the HBO soundtrack for the “Silicon Valley” series kind of puts Nas and DJ Shadow on the path to must-drop-music-video for their jawn “Systematic,” doesn’t it? Well, if you peeped above you already know that question was rhetorical.

Enjoy the lyrical visuals for the dope auditorial. You’re welcome.

You can pre-order the “Silicon Valley” soundtrack from Mass Appeal Records (due out this June).

Snoop Dogg – “Neva Left” (Album)

To call that “Mount Kushmore” a ‘teaser’ seems almost like a backhand shot. Let’s call it a lead-in. And a great lead-in it was for Snoop Dogg’s “Neva Left.” Out now, we got the FREE sampler stream for you to try out (plus the link to cop, if you like, via link to an earlier post here).

SNOOP DOGG – NEVA LEFT (ALBUM)

YONAS – “You F#cked Up” (Prod. By Benjamin) [Video]

Y’all vibing with the new song & video?! We had so much fun putting everything together hope you enjoy it! Make sure to spread the word and share…
YONAS

Dude is channeling Drizzy Drake something serious. Just an observation. Not a bad thing, just got that feel. Cool song and vid. A man and his mannequin and not soon parted (hahahaaa). But these two are on the ‘outs’ because, according to YONAS, she “F#cked Up.” Check out the video for the song (produced by Benjamin).

David Banner – “Magnolia” feat. Cee-Lo x Raheem DeVaughn

David Banner be banging! This release, “Magnolia,” off the forthcoming project “The God Box” (pre-order link below) is painfully deep with a story over a dope beat.

The song represents the relationship of trees in Mississippi and Africans throughout history. The taller the tree, the broader the story, the shorter the tree, the more personal the perspective is. My verse is about the relationship between the magnolia tree and Africans during slavery.
David Banner

“The God Box” has vocal performance features from Cee-Lo and Raheem (obviously) and Big K.R.I.T from the Magnolia State; plus Black Thought (of The Roots), Trinidad James, WatchtheDuck and Big Rube. Production assists come from DJ Khalil, DJ Swiff, and more.

Flying Lotus – “Night Grows Pale”

Maybe this was what it was, just an instrumental track that Flying Lotus cooked up and served as a standalone dish. But if there were emcees around when this “Night Grows Pale” was on playback in the studio… they were fighting for it! Guaranteeed. This is that dope beat somebody needs to pay, and pay dearly, for son!

Glad it’s up for streaming though. Call this a win either way.

Ne-Yo – “Earn Ur Love”

Ne-Yo is singing, “Some things are beyond a price tag” and that he feels pain for the woman who gives it up for a new purse. Wanting a woman who knows what she is really worth is some grown man ‘ish for certain; a grown man who is a new husband and father… Like Ne-Yo.

A Good Man will earn you. He’ll work for it and won’t mind working for it because he recognizes your worth. Ladies, find a man that’ll “Earn Your Love.” Enjoy this appetizer guys. Album coming soon.
Ne-Yo

Oh, don’t worry. Ne-Yo quoted some Tupac in “Earn Ur Love,” too. Still sort of a player; just not crushing a lot [of other women] anymore (haaa). Good music here.

(So who’s the wifey that walked that aisle with the R&B bachelor? Well, she is some Eye Candy we posted on before… Crystal Renay… But @ItsCrystalSmith now.)

NE-YO – EARN UR LOVE

Tony Moxberg x Whispers – “Mossberg” (Prod. By Dayzel)

You know Whispers from the collabos on him we’ve posted (Joell Ortiz, Sheek Louch, Chris Rivers, and others). And Tony Moxberg… well, not much online on him as of yet. But I will keep checking for him. Of course, Moxberg’s down with his folks from Yonkers (New York, USA), The L.O.X. They’ll definitely vouch for the dopeness, but you really ought to listen to the stream for “Mossberg” (produced by Dayzel) above and decide for yourself.

Tony Moxberg x Whispers fresh off The L.O.X. tour come thru with a BANGER!!!
