A good friend of mine is taking his talents from the office board room to the recording studio. Straight out of North Carolina and now residing in Brooklyn, Jon Thom just put out his first release, Rappin Assassin, that will lead into his debut EP, #TBD. The EP releases on 10/11/12 and will then be followed up with another series of EP drops. Take a listen and check out his site Jonithom.com for more information.
This could be the album of the year! Pre-order it now off of iTunes or wait until October 22nd to hear for yourselves. Kendrick’s music is a breathe of fresh air from the over saturated hip hop that is currently out. Features and production credits include Dr. Dre, Just Blaze, Drake, Jay Rock, Lady Gaga, and Mary J. Blige.

When Kanye West talks, you listen. Hear what he has to say about the inspiration behind Cruel Summer and what his thought process was during the making of the album process.
This documentary leaked last year, then was taken down and now resurfaces a year later after Watch The Throne dropped. Great footage and insight into the tiniest portion of what it took to make the great album that The Throne crafted.
The first time the supposed tracklisting was released, it turned out to be a fake. But just today, Rick Ross revealed the official tracklisting (via Twitter) for his upcoming album “God Forgives, I Don’t,” which is set to drop July 31.
MMG’s other video for their track “Power Circle” off of their Self Made Vol. 2 album dropped today, and just a few moments ago, a second video for another track off the album dropped titled “Black Magic.” I’ve listened to countless Meek Mill’ tracks and I’m not sure I have ever heard him go in the way he did in this video.
For those who can’t wait any longer to listen to Maybach Music’s second Self Made album, here is the entire album being streamed live to give you a heads up on what to expect from Rick Ross and his crew.
Watch and listen as Rick Ross gives a first person narrative of his career to date. From a young
CO hustler from Miami M-I-Yayo to the boss of MMG, God Forgives, I Don’t.
Although K.R.I.T.’s upcoming album – “Live From The Underground” – isn’t due out until June 5, homie decided to show his southern hospitality by allowing all of us fans to live stream the entire album online and give it a listen before it hits stores next week. K.R.I.T. is easily in my Top 5 favorite artists right now and I’ve listened to this album entirely twice this morning and it’s phenomenal (“If I Fall” featuring Melanie Fiona is my personal favorite). From artists like Ludacris, Bun B and Fiona, the tracks are packed full of outstanding beats and truthful lyrics about the things he has gone through in his young career as an underground rapper. You can give the album a listen here.
Thanks to NPR.org for the link!
As if Vol. 1 wasn’t already a classic .. I expect the same with this June 26 release.
