The emcee formally known as Crooked I puts on Dr. Dre’s crispy Air Force 1’s and takes them for a walk.
As the first guest on the debut of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” Kendrick Lamar (who just so happened to be the last guest of “The Colbert Report”) is joined by Anna Wise, Bilal and Thundercat to perform “Wesley’s Theory,” “King Kunta” and “U.” Watch it all above.
Georgia Anne Muldrow is a multi-faceted musician whose skills lie in her ability to channel spine-tingling soul through her vocals and hard-hitting-yet-groovy production. After listening through three randomly selected records, she concocted three different tracks from the classical and operatic samples she pulled, creating some eerie funk to rattle the system in your car trunk. While she wasn’t sure if she survived the challenge, her beats say otherwise.
Joe Budden’s All Love Lost drops on October 9th and the emcee serves up the artwork and his unique way of handling the tracklisting for the album. The tracklisting is placed in a letter where the title of the songs are in all caps. Check it out below and make sure to cop it when it drops.
Is ALL LOVE LOST? Maybe our foundation BROKE while we were PLAYING OUR PART, but when I fell no one noticed there was a MAN DOWN. Before that I felt IMMORTAL. Telling everyone I LOVE, I’M GOOD. Afterwards I didn’t think I’d MAKE IT THRU THE NIGHT. I Felt ppl just wanted to SLAUGHTERMOUSE. So to keep busy I’ve been listening to what those hoes say while deciding WHERE DO WE GO from here. The UNNECESSARY PAIN is constant. I still got LOVE FOR YOU.

Your Old Droog and Problem hit DJ Eclipse’s Rap Is Outta Control show and bless the instrumental to Jeru The Damaja’s “One Day.”
Saga and Marco Polo get together to release the banger “Tell Me.”
It’s rare that an artist can show development in a year, never mind four months, but that’s exactly what Brooklyn’s Saga has done with “Tell Me.” Like most of his break-out From Out Of The Shadows, which dropped this past April to critical acclaim, the track is produced by heavyweight beatsmith, Marco Polo.
The two Brooklyn dwellers prove yet again that they’re long-lost rap brethren, on a track that’s as much of a celebration as it is a reminder to stop sleeping on Saga. For his part, it’s clear his pen just keeps getting sharper, even after killing it over Alchemist instrumentals on Saga Ghanoush. Saga’s growing skill set is particularly evident on the hook, which boasts the BK spitter playing off the looping “Tell me…” vocal.
