Luckily, J.Cole and Chipmunk met as he toured Europe with Drake and this remix was born. Tagged up radio rip leaked a few days ago, but here is the CD quality, official […]

My Life: Lupe Fiasco tells NYCer’s to ‘Look Up in the Sky’ in Union Square

However, this isn’t a one time thing for Em and Brisk. Apparently there is some exclusive new music on the way and I’m sure they’ll do one or two […]
