| November 11, 2008 | 0 Comments

Thanks to everyone who sent this over (and I sincerely mean that). 

Yet another leak from 808’s & Heartbreak, produced by Yeezy and No ID.  I missed the B.O.B.O conference call earlier today, but luckily RH was on hand to transcribe.

Damn, and someone just hit me with the Wayne joint.  The F?

Where is Shark Radio when you need him?

Rhymesayers is currently hosting a Jake One contest in honor of the release of his super official album, White Van Music. Well, as part of the contest you can record your own song to one of the beats from his album and submit it to become one of the top 5 (which is to be announced today, apparently), which will then narrowed down to one, where the winner will win a beat and a session with Jake.  Here Wes Restless and Matlock got together with DJ Alo on the cuts to create, “Won’t Be Now”

Best of luck to Matlock and Wes!

This was supposed to go up yesterday, but there were some technical difficulties with the youtube link. Anyhoo, GL the Great called in to chat with Shine over at Crack Distributors Radio to discuss everything from the Go-Getters, to how he hooked up with ‘Ye, to the I Ain’t Even On Yet mixtape.

Kanye West feat. Kid Cudi – “Welcome To Heartbreak”

| November 10, 2008 | 0 Comments

Seriously, this ish needs to stop leaking, it’s messing up my album listening experience.  I believe this is the sixth liberated song from 808s & Heartbreak. “Welcome To Heartbreak” features Kid Cudi, who I’m still basically unfamiliar with.  The quality of the track is Deputy Dog Shit, but you get the idea.  This Shark Radio guy also gets the Gas Face.

Atlantic Records “Decline Comment” On Lupe Retirement, LupEnd

| November 10, 2008 | 0 Comments

I will admit that I definitely saw this coming. reports:

Atlantic Records is declining comment on reports that rapper Lupe Fiasco will retire from music after releasing a triple disc album titled “LupEND.”

There is no way these ‘bags at Atlantic Records are going to let Lupe just throw in the towel with a three album swan song.  He’s without a doubt one of their most viable hip-hop acts at the moment.  I bet when Lu made that announcement on Halloween Craig Kallman’s bat phone began to ring off the hook and it sent shivers down his spine.   I really can’t see them taking that “set aside” Lupe budget and putting it towards, say, a Big Kuntry King or Pleasure P (sorry I just checked the website and it made me chuckle)

Read the rest of the piece, which doesn’t really offer much of anything else, here.
