No One ft. Rapper Big Pooh, Chaundon – Temptation Calls (Music Video)

Noni Spitz and Dae One are No One. Together, they recruit Rapper Big Pooh and Chaundon for their latest music video off of their upcoming album, The Substance. Sounding pretty good to me.

Mac Miller – Speaking in Tungs Freestyle

No info was given on this track, but it seems like a new ‘freestyle’ from Mac over Cam’ron’s “Speaking in Tungs” instrumental. This is from the Femme Fatale mix show, I believe. Give it a spin:

Red Cafe ft. Ryan Leslie, Rick Ross – Fly Together

If I’m not mistake, Red Cafe said this is his first official album single – although his album doesn’t come out until Q1 2012…which means we’ll see plenty of other “official” album singles in the meantime. Liking it? Thanks to LA Leakers.

Quotable: Pusha T Talks About Consequence & His Issues with G.O.O.D. Music

Quotable: Pusha T Talks About Consequence & His Issues with G.O.O.D. Music

I just think it’s pretty pathetic, man. It all boils down to royalty, and having certain principles. Nobody maliciously tries to do anything. This is a business, and sometimes things don’t work — some artists don’t pop. But I don’t think you blame the head of that crew for it, especially in a business like […]

Game Recites “N****s In Compton” Verse for LA Leakers

Following the release of the audio for this, we get a video of Game pulling a Drake and blackberrying his verse. At least he wasn’t trying to play it off as a freestyle like Wheelchair Jimmy.

A long time coming, but Gotti will drop his album on the 27th of September aka Cole World day. Good luck with those sales. Seriously, though -  I’ve stated in the past that I salute ANYONE who gets an album in stores nowadays.

Mike Stud ft. Huey Mack & Rich Young – Back Again

I don’t particularly like this slice of suburban MC, but this is a decent, feel-good track that goes out to those who are heading back to school again. Whether it be Junior High, High School or College, enjoy the experience – especially College. I know I did. Spotted at GMAD.

Today, Wale took what looks like a camera phone pic from the rough edit of his upcoming music video with Rick Ross, “That Way.” The track serves as a standout song on Self Made because it doesn’t have the repetitive Lex Luger nature like the rest of the album. Looking forward to this vid.

Lil Wayne – Nightmares of the Bottom (CDQ)

After performing this on his MTV Unplugged special, we get the CDQ version of the track to be included on Tha Carter IV.  Liking the vibe to this track ever since I heard him perform it live. Pick that album up next Monday.
