This is a unique combination that works when it all comes together as Houston’s Paul Wall, Buffalo’s Benny The Butcher and Boston’s Statik Selektah connect for “Overcame.” It’s from Paul Wall and Statik Selektah’s Give Thanks project dropping on November 28. If you’re not sure what to expect, we suggest you hit play and find out.
Bandana remains in heavy rotation as one of the best albums of the year (even though the Grammys don’t think so). In light of the nonsensical snub for Best Rap Album, Madlib and Freddie Gibbs drop the absolutely hilarious video for “Gat Damn.” Freddie Gibbs goes the Five Heartbeats route as Freddie Kane and takes to the stage in a retro set of visuals. It’s nuts.
Consequence releases this lost song from the final Tribe Called Quest sessions titled “No Place Like Home” shortly after what would have been Phife Dawg’s 49th birthday.
“I always knew I wanted people to hear this record, but it just felt like the timing had to be right,” Consequence said about the song that is finally seeing the light of day. “This year it feels right. The one thing I know about Phife is that he’s a rapper’s rapper. The best gift I could give him for his birthday this year is to let the world hear the 5 Foot Assassin once again!”

DJ PREMIER SHARES CLASSIC STORIES ON JAY-Z, NAS, RZA, J.COLE AND THE BEGINNINGS OF GANG STARR [VIDEO]
The wealth of information that DJ Premier possesses is unfathomable. He’s seen it all and done it all. He’s probably forgotten more things than a vast majority of us will ever remember. One half of the legendary Gang Starr heads to Hot 97 and delivers a number of stories on Ebro in the Morning that detail everything from the creation of One of the Best Yet to his working history with Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G. and many more.
Fred The Godson will be dropping God Level on November 15 and cuts loose one last single before the album is in your hands. He teams up with 38 Spesh and Benny the Butcher for “Nokia.”
Five artists join forces as part of Jay-Z’s Inspire Change initiative as Royce 5’9″, T.I., CyHi The Prynce, White Gold and Sy Ari Da Kid connect for “Black Savage.”
After dropping the DJ Premier-produced “Beat The Odds,” David Bars is right back at it with “A Star Is Born” that features production from Buckwild and a guest spot from the one and only Fat Joe. The Bar Code drops on November 15th. Are you ready?
