Friday has arrived, along with some big name song releases...
Big K.R.I.T releases the artwork for his upcoming album Lords Of The Underground, due out June 5. Keep your eyes peeled for updates... that's one album not to miss.
So, first up, the biggest of them all.... NASTY NAS. No I.D. on production with that adult-contemporary hiphop sound we heard on Common's The Dreamer, The Believer. Top shelf stuff.
Next, Slaughterhouse's latest single off Welcome To: OUR HOUSE, out June 12. Cee-Lo Green on the hook, Streetrunner & SAROM on the boards.
Cudder is back to rapping with his self-produced cut "Dennis, Hook Me Up With Some More of This Whiskey!" Promising, sounds very much like pre-MOTM stuff, loving the production. I'm still frothing his WZRD collab album with Dot Da Genius though, so not jumping out my skin with this one. Regardless, it's a must listen, it's KiD CuDi.
QuESt has stepped things up, after his DnB/Dubsteb/Hiphop infused mixtape he's jumped on Kendrick Lamar's The Recipe, and my god does he rip it up. Up and coming rapper right here!
B.o.B's latest album Strange Clouds arrives next Tuesday, and another cut has been released. I lost sleep waiting for his debut album back in 2010, but not so much this time. I won't write the album off before it's even released but I have a feeling we've lost the rapper/singer to the commercial world. Fingers crossed for some great tracks though.
Usher released a new song, it's called Scream. Produced by Max Martin, the Sweedish pop music machine. I'm not posting it because it's nowhere near good as the Diplo-produced Climax. Note to aspiring singer/recording artists: if you want the easy route to make it big, go find Max Martin. The man has had 10 top 10 songs in 2 years.
AND FINALLY.............. Even if you aren't a fan of MGK (Machine Gun Kelly) this is well worth your viewing pleasure. A Stevo from Jackass pubic hair dooby is always a treat. "Wild Boy" remix f. 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Steve-O, Mystikal, French Montana & Yo Gotti.
