Troy Ave drops a little remix in preparation for his upcoming mixtape titled Bricks In My Back Pack III which will be available on June 12th.
Fabolous went and did what I wish more rappers would do: Remix “Birthday Cake” by Rihanna. While I don’t love his version I’m posting hoping more rappers will follow the trend. The beat is crazy and as great as RiRi sounds on it, how epic would someone like say Ludacris sound on this instrumental? Just my two cents.
Vado lands a Loso feature for this track off of his upcoming tape Slime Flu 2. The tape is supposedly finished and was going to drop this summer, but in typical hip-hop fashion, that got pushed back. No release on an official release date, but Power 105′s Breakfast Club got the green light to premiere this track this morning. AraabMuzik behind the boards, and I’m liking what I’m hearing. Check it out below.
Over Rozay & Wayne’s “9 Piece.” Loso got them hot wings, and you want them. Download below
It looks like Loso is finally gearing up for part two of Loso’s Way. I’m definitely not mad at that or this song. I am a sucker for a sick Trey Songz hook, no pun intended, and while it is a bit cliche to use a Biggie lyric for your hook they do a nice job with this one. Check out the stream below.
This is the latest realease off Game’s upcoming R.E.D. Album, and it is a star studded affair. A straight club banger produced by Lex Luger, The Game enlists the usual suspects in an attempt for a much needed hit. I’m a huge Game fan and his last three albums are at the top of almost all my playlists, but Game is at an odd place in his carear right now. He is past being able to live off the hype of The Documentary, Doctor’s Advocate, and LAX with current audiences today. Game continues to sound like he is caught in the middle of still doing gangster rap or moving on to a more “Jay-Z like” established, successful, mature style most rappers reach by their 4th album when they can’t talk about being ruthless drug kingpins on the block, and live more like CEO’s in suburbia then corner kids. I was a big fan of “RED Nation” (minus the Weezy hook), and tracks like “Rough” and “Monsters in My Head,” but have little play for this and the Trey Songz collabo “She Wanna Have My Baby.” It is my opinion Game believes that the mere fact he is dropping an album should give him the same buzz as the Kanyes, Jay-Zs, and Eminems of the industry but this isn’t the glory days of G-Unit and the years following. This track symbolizes a sad fact to me that one of my favorite rappers has fallen back into the pack of needing features on almost every song with big names who often give mediocore effort, in attempt to reach a broader radio audience and satisfy “iTunes Top 10″ rap fans. Though I’m sure this will bang in the clubs, and RED will be a project that brings back some of his viability (being optimistic), I felt the need to rant a little about my favorite rapper’s fall from prominance. All that said I love The Game and his verse on this isn’t half bad, and I hope his lyrics stay sharp on an album I’m dying to see succeed. What do I know though, take a listen for yourself. The R.E.D. Album is scheduled to drop (finally) on August 23rd this summer. Hopefully it’s a trip back to the top.

Fabolous recently teamed up with VEVO for their Go Shows venture. For those of you who don’t know Go Shows are impromptu shows set up by VEVO and then filmed for online viewers. As much as I dislike a lot of the things about VEVO in my book this is a pretty cool initiative. Also, can we just talk about how Fab STAYS getting that slept on card thrown in his face? He is so nice with the wordplay and people don’t even realize. Mad underrated, but y’all don’t hear me though.
This joint appears on The S.O.U.L. Tape and can be downloaded here.
Hot 97′s DJ Kast One premiered this new song from Banks and Fabolous earlier today and the CDQ was released shortly after. Banks has been coming out with some really solid stuff during the past year. HFM2 was still one of my favorite albums from 2010. Sounds like this track should be featured on Banks’ upcoming mixtape Cold Corner 2 which should be dropping relatively soon. In the mean time, give this track a listen and a download.
This is Fabolous’ first release off his upcoming mixtape, The S.O.U.L. Tape. Fab drops some punchlines over that Martin Louie and Bawse record and I must say I am a fan. I loved Kanye’s original but it’s nice to see Fab keep killin’ the competition on this beat. Fab you be killin’ em!

UPDATE: Now with a video:
Jeezy drops a verse on Lloyd Bank’s opus off of H.F.M.2. here. I have got to say this is the first I have heard from Jeezy in awhile that has made me want to hit replay. Is it possible Jeezy is finally bring some heat for 2011? CTE or Nothin’. Download below.
