Kanye & Jay’s New Single To Feature Beyonce & Bruno Mars

| April 30, 2011 | 1 Comment

After “H.A.M.” was met with a lukewarm reception (I still like stand by liking the record), Kanye and Jay have regrouped and gone back to work on their collaborative EP Watch The Throne.  Last I’d heard, the project was on hiatus until further notice due to label issues and internal drama (rumors!), but after the duo were spotted en route to a lab in Paris, those rumors went to bed.  Lights out…

Today, Jeff Bhasker – who produced the second single ,”Lift Off”, which is to feature both Beyonce and Bruno Mars, took to Twitter to talk about the record:

Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited for this album and everything, but I’m still waiting for a sign on this new Common album.

Chekk Famous x N.E.P.H.E.W. – Most Hated

| April 30, 2011 | 7 Comments

“They love me and N.E.P. tunes, where Pharrell at?”

Straight from Cook County with a bounty of their heads, it’s N.E.P.H and Chekk.  These two are “bridging the gap between the Westside and Wild 100s” on this one with Bangghz on the beat.  Nice little tandem flow here.

How You Gon Say I Ain’t No Lo Head?

| April 29, 2011 | 2 Comments

If you follow me on Twitter, then I’m sure you’ve either seen me shouting out or conversating with DJ CottonHere, my mella from Tennessee, whose YouTube page is the hottest thing smokin’  if you’re into throwback hip-hop clips from BET, MTV and elsewhere.  Cotton’s page has brought back a lot of forgotten memories and serves as a hip-hop time capsule from 1996-2006, when he was heavily taping some of your favorite episodes of Rap City and the like.  It’s definitely worth a stroll scroll through if you have the time.  In fact, Cotton dropped that  Baby and Weezy kissing clip a few weeks back that set the internets ablaze, so you know his library is deep (and not with just man-kisses!)

Cotton’s going to be upping some lost and forgotten Chicago content over the next few weeks, and today he unleashed a couple from MTV’s Diary of Kanye West, which ran all of the way back in 2004, right after The College Dropout dropped and didn’t flop.  I mean, this was something I’d completely forgotten existed.  The clips follow Yeezy (with Don C in tow) around Chicago as he visits students and later the Polo Mansion on Michigan Ave., where he’s helped by the lady who still works there now.  Job security!

L.E.P. Bogus Boys x Mobb Deep Collabo On The Way

| April 28, 2011 | 6 Comments

Yep, it’s official.  Produced by the ALC?  That’s the word.

At this point the Bogus Boys damn near have a feature with the entire industry.  However, this one in particular could be the joint I’m most looking forward to hearing.  Many have pegged Count and Moonie as the new Prodigy and Havoc, and after this hits, I don’t see that comparison going anywhere.  A passing of the torch if you will.  Look for their chains to bang glass tables together in the very near future.

Color me excited for the video shoot.  Ha!

Video: Malice Talks Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind & Naked in Chicago

Tonight, one half of the Clipse, was in Chicago promoting the release of his new book Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind & Naked. He held a book signing and meet and greet at the PHLI Store hosted by Dave Jeff.  It was a solid event, and in the clip above Malice thanks fans and supporters for coming through and gives us the 411 on the book.  And yes I used 411 as if this was 1990.
