One of the dopest contemporary singers teams up with the dopest hip hop producer on this new track which is full of energy, good vibes and some great cuts on the hook too!
The O.G is back with some bounce in his latest track “AAAHHH” produced by legendary beat smith Swizz Beatz. We know that whenever these two come together something magical happens, although I wouldn’t say that this is their best work together it is still a vibe.
Busta never fails to bring character to any track he is on and Swizz keeps it simple but effective with the piano led production and a catchy bass line driven hook. This is definitely a track hip hop heads will appreciate and a great pick for those of you with stress to alleviate AAAHHH
Following a short time off the grid Ill Bill is back as lyrically engaging and dope as ever with this new project, in which he brings his Uncle Howie/Non Phixion boys on board. Straight dopeness from start to finish and always a good look when he brings the likes of Q Unique and Goretex on the feature verses too!
Smoke DZA and Flying Lotus link up in the what is a celebration of the 4/20 festive season. A time for relaxation, vibes and good company, the NY rapper and LA producer deliver in fine form, and some up the vibe perfectly, with their new tracks, ‘Outside My Mind’ and ‘Petty Murphy’.
A strong new rhythm track out of Kingstone Records which features some of the cream of the Jamaican reggae scene and some US and European talent too! Check below for the Gentleman and Daddy Rings vocal -
Daddy Rings & Gentleman - In The Streets
Fabolous is back with a new set of visuals for 'Summertime sadness', taken from his 'Summertime Shootout' mixtape. In the music video, better yet, the mini-movie, we see Fab and his co-star Dave East re-enacting John Travolta and Nicolas Cage’s famous scene in Face/Off. The heartfelt track samples Lana Del Rey’s 'Summertime sadness' and Fab’s nostalgic storytelling walks us through the emotions of losing friends and the struggles of getting out of the streets.
Meanwhile Dave East takes the track to another level. His emotive lyricism represents everything Hip-hop is about; rawness and authenticity. No doubt, Dave East went in and killed Loso on his own track! Nevertheless, Fab’s cinematic approach is taking music videos to another level and this isn’t the first time he’s done it, following the “You made me” music video, inspired by Back to the Future. Also the “We Good” visuals, inspired by Dead Presidents, who knows what’s next!
The unlikely duo of French Montana and Fetty Wap made acquaintances on the 'One Helluva Night' tour from last month, and spent much of their down time constructing the release 'Coke Zoo', which hit the world unexpectedly a few days ago. The visuals for 'Freaky' which feature fellow Remy Boy Monty are part of the release as well. Streaming and download options are below.

After a drama filled year for both the Bad Boy Records CEO and the G Unit boss, it looks like Sean Combs will have the last laugh, as not only has he reached #1 on the annual hip hop rich list, but Curtis Jackson didn't even make the top 20, which shouldn't come as a surprise following his bankruptcy announcements.
Considering Diddy's wide ranging brand portfolio it's clear to see how he raked in such a fortune, with brands like Ciroc Vodka, REVOLT TV network, alkaline water brand Aquahydrate and can't forget the clothing brand Sean John!
50's Effen Vodka and SMS Audio don't seem to have generated much ROI for Fiddy though let's see what things look like in a year's time. Much respect due to independent hip hop icon Tech N9ne, who came in at number 17. Further proof that being a dope rapper with a solid fan base and a great live show, combined with consistent output really can make you million of dollars without having to compromise your own brand!

Following the untimely passing of legendary Brooklyn rapper Sean Price on Saturday, it's only right that his memory was due a place in the streets of his home city of New York.
5 Pointz artist Meresone definitely captures the 43 year old emcee in true character, which was placed in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
Beast Coast psychonauts The Underachievers have definitely had a busy week. After announcing a brand new upcoming album Evermore: The Art of Duality, the eclectic Brooklyn rap duo have also served up a first appetiser from the project, along with the announcement of a solo world tour.
“Take Your Place” is the Mr.Bristol produced first preview Evermore, and like much of the Beast Coast work we are familiar with, is decidedly heavy on poetic existential philosophy while still maintaining enough energy to insight moshpit behaviours. This track is the first new material we’ve heard from The Underachievers since they collaborated with fellow Beast Coast psychedelic rappers The Flatbush Zombies last year for the Clockwork Indigo album and tour!
