T.I. Debuts “My Potna”

The greatest rappers of all time are the ones who found ways to make the English language work for them. They have a story to tell that is entirely theirs and they’ll bend the basic understandings of rhyme and pronunciation to tell that tale exactly the way they feel it should be conveyed. It’s one of the most unique elements of hip-hop, even though it can be a journalist’s worst nightmare, and today T.I. is sharing another chapter of his story through a new song entitled “My Potna.”

Though T.I. has not released any official tracks or albums since the December 2012 debut of Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, he has spent the majority of 2013 making headlines for promotional singles, either his own or on tracks for other artists. “My Potna” was created for DJ Scream & DJ MLK, who have a new mixtape on the horizon called 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards that is expected to drop in the middle of October. The release supposedly features a number of exclusive tracks, including this one, but so far “My Potna” is the only track made available to the public. You can stream “My Potna” at the end of this post.

Like many urban artists, T.I. tends to keep his future plans closely guarded until he feels it’s time to make them public. We do not know what he has planned in the months ahead, but after “My Potna” gets around I’m sure there will be many fans like us eagerly waiting new developments. We’ll keep our eyes out for updates and bring you additional information as it becomes available. Continue reading ‘T.I. Debuts “My Potna”’

Juicy J Releases “All I Blow Is Loud” Video

The weekend is almost here. Can you feel it?

Hoping to help fans worldwide ease into the weekend a few hours early, Juicy J has released the official video for his Stay Trippy cut, “All I Blow Is Loud.”

Considering the fact Juicy J has been a notable member of the hip-hop community for over two decades, one would think everyone who is even slightly aware of his existence knows he’s a fan of marijuana. But on his latest single, he does not seem to think that’s the case. “All I Blow Is Loud” finds the over-30 rapper offering verse after verse on his love of mary jane, all backed by wall-of-sound production from Lex Luger. The clip tells a tale of an apparent robbery gone awry, but the edits are so quick and sparsely intertwined between lengthy performance sequences that the full story is a little hard to grasp. You can view the video at the end of this post.

Stay Trippy, the new album from Juicy J, arrived in stores the first week of September following more than a year of delays. Fans and critics seem to agree the wait was worth it, so if “All I Blow Is Loud” appeals to you we suggest taking a chance on the full album.

Migos Release “Versace” Video

Following a summer that found them skyrocketing to the forefront of the hip-hop landscape, Migos have released their official video for “Versace.”

There are only a handful of brands that bring to mind the kind of lavish lifestyle people associate with Versace, and in their first official music video, the men of Migos live that life to the hilt. The emcees are seen performing in and around a mansion, often surrounded by beautiful women, all while wearing clothing and jewelry whose price tags could bankrupt the average person. It’s little more than a performance piece, but the brothers Migos certainly appear to be having a good time. You can view the video for “Versace” at the end of this post.

Few songs in 2013 have permeated pop culture to the same extent as “Versace,” and now that the video has debuted it seems Migos’ reign over urban music has been extended a bit longer. We do not know what they have planned in the weeks, but if you pay close attention to the following music video you may hear a snippet of a song many believe to be their next single. We’ll bring you more updates on everything Migos related in the weeks ahead. Continue reading ‘Migos Release “Versace” Video’

Sleigh Bells Stream New Album

Indie outfit Sleigh Bells are streaming their new album, Bitter Rivals, one week ahead of its release date.

The third album of their career, Bitter Rival reintroduces Sleigh Bells back to the pop landscape with a sonic fury that has no current equal in the world of music. The album contains ten brand new tracks and was produced by guitarist Derek Miller with mixing by Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Jay Z, Tyler, The Creator). You can stream the entire album, starting today, on Consequence Of Sound.

Though they have only been part of the indie world for a few years, Sleigh Bells have already become one of the most discussed bands in alternative music. Their sound straddles the line between rock, pop, and hip-hop with a fervor, and from what we’ve heard so far, Bitter Rivals might just be their finest effort to date.

Bitter Rivals arrives in stores October 8. After you listen to the stream, comment below and let us know your thoughts on Sleigh Bells’ latest.

Meek Mill Releases ‘Dreamchasers 3′ Mixtape

If there is a better way to kick off a new work week than finding a free album from one of hip-hop’s finest I haven’t found it.

After months of promotion and a handful of delays, Maybach Music Group member Meek Mill has released his long-awaited Dreamchasers 3 mixtape. The release is the latest in a series of free album that initially helped propel Meek Mill into the national spotlight. The latest installment contains 16 brand new tracks and features guest appearances from the likes of Rick Ross, French Montana, Nikki Minaj, Diddy, Lil Snupe, and Jadakiss – just to name a few. You can find the track listing and official download link at the end of this post.

Dreamchasers 2 was the first album from Meek Mill I experienced, and it was enough to convert me into a fan overnight. The ferocity in each verse hits your ears with an unimpeachable sincerity, and based on the tracks I’ve heard off DC3, it seems safe to assume Mill has another smash on his hands. If you want to stream the album before downloading, head over to Audiomack for a stream of the full record.

Meek Mill has teased tour announcements for the fall, but at this time no such information has been made available to the press.  Continue reading ‘Meek Mill Releases ‘Dreamchasers 3′ Mixtape’

Chief Keef Debuts “Ight Doe”

Chicago native Chief Keef has once again found his way into the OS headlines with the release of a brand new song and music video.

If our math is correct, Chief Keef has released nearly two dozen music videos in 2013. He discovered in 2012 that marketing new singles with videos, even ones seemingly filmed in an afternoon, garnered far more attention than the typical MP3 release… and he never looked back. His latest, “Ight Doe,” is one of the most radio-ready tracks we’ve heard in awhile. The lyrics are your typical bars on violence, money, and women, but the overall production and delivery is miles ahead of the young rapper’s earlier work. You can view the video below.

There is no denying that Chicago hip-hop has a sound all its own, and at this point no person better represents that sound than Chief Keef. He may not have the deepest lyrics you’ve heard, but the pictures he paints with them are as vibrant as any you’re likely to find.

Chief Keef is supposedly planning a new mixtape before the end of 2013, but at this time no specific release information has been made available. We’ll update you as soon as more details begin to surface. Continue reading ‘Chief Keef Debuts “Ight Doe”’

Machine Gun Kelly Releases “Home Soon” Video

Cleveland native Machine Gun Kelly has built a reputation out of being a self-proclaimed ‘wild boy’ but this atfternoon it’s his softer side that’s making headlines thank to a new video for his latest single, “Home Soon.”

The latest track off MGK’s Black flag mixtape to be given the single treatment, “Home Soon” is an aptly-titled track about the emcee’s longing for home when on the road. The video was shot while MGK was touring in Australia, and according to a press release sent with the video, the final cut was edited by MGK himself during his flight home. You can view the clip below.

Black Flag is available now, for free, from Live Mixtapes. MGK is reportedly working on a new studio album, but that information has yet to be confirmed. We’ll bring you more information as it becomes available. Until then, comment below and let us know your thoughts on the video. Continue reading ‘Machine Gun Kelly Releases “Home Soon” Video’

Rick Ross Debuts “No Games” Video

Hip-hop heavyweight Rick Ross has released the official video for his latest single, “No Games.”

Hitting the net a week after the Maybach Music Group compilation Self Made Vol 3 arrived in stores, “No Games” starts the push for Ross’ upcoming solo album with style. The clip features Ross performing in a high-rise hotel room in between stylized clips from the classic film Scarface, many of which focus on the protagonist’s demise. You can view the video at the end of this post.

“No Games” originally debuted at the beginning of September, but has remained largely untouched by the MMG marketing department in light of the aforementioned compilation’s impending release. Now that Self Made Vol 3 is in stores, Ross is focusing all his efforts on his album Mastermind, which is currently scheduled to arrive on shelves before the end of 2013. We’ll continue to follow the efforts of Ross in the weeks ahead, updating you as soon as new information becomes available. Continue reading ‘Rick Ross Debuts “No Games” Video’

Chief Keef Debuts “Love No Thotties”

Chicago emcee Chief Keef knows a good marketing formula when he sees it, and this morning continues his trend of releasing new material through music videos with, “Love No Thotties.”

Featuring Keef and the numerous cars he appears to own, the promotional video for “Love No Thotties” is a relatively simple affair. Keef’s fans have grown attached to the rapper through performance clips set in the midst of what seems to be his daily routing of hanging out and get high, so it stands to reason he’d deliver similar content this time around. The only difference between what’s shown here and what people saw in earlier videos like “Love Sosa” is the lifestyle Keef is sharing with viewers. It used to be about the streets he came from, but nowadays its about the materials he’s acquired as a result of his success. You can view the video below.

2013 has been a wild year for Chief Keef to say the least. He started January by entering a three-month prison sentence that put him back on the streets in time for SXSW. From there, Keef hit the road with a string of nationwide shows in between recording sessions and additional court appearances. The time in the studio has so far resulted in two mixtapes worth of material, as well as the song he premiered today. There are rumors a third mixtape will hit the net before 2014, but we cannot confirm that information at this time. Continue reading ‘Chief Keef Debuts “Love No Thotties”’

50 Cent Debuts “NY”

50 Cent has delivered a brand new anthem for the city he calls home.

Standing on a rooftop in the middle of the night with the city as his backdrop, 50 Cent takes on the persona of New York City for his new single. He talks about the city’s cold heart and how it’s only growing colder as the crime rate increases, then uses the chorus to let listeners know that the city won’t be destroyed by the antics of a few bad apples. It’s tougher than people realize, and it will swallow you alive if you aren’t careful. Click here to view the video.

For a song that was originally released as part of a free album, “NY” packs a lot of heat. The street-ready production harkens back to an earlier point in 50′s career, but the lyricism is miles ahead of anything found on Get Rich Or Die Tryin. He’s still obsessed with money, drugs, and violence, but at this point I think it’s safe to say that is exactly what 50 Cent fans want to hear.

50 Cent has spoken on occasion about releasing a new studio album, but for now seems content to deliver free content to fans whenever the mood strikes him. We certainly aren’t complaining about this decision, and will keep our eyes peeled for future developments as they arise. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on “NY.” Continue reading ’50 Cent Debuts “NY”’
