Yes, it’s true: deep down we’re all thirstballs to hear the latest music from Kanye West. And since the masterpiece known as Yeezus, we’ve been impatiently waiting for some new material. Well, the Thirst Gods have surfaced yet again, and we can now here a brief snippet of his new record “Awesome.” A portion of this record will play tonight on the season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In the clip, you can hear Kim describing the record, which is dedicated to her, and then miraculously a high quality snippet begins to play in the background. E! — the new place to break music.
Check it out below while you can.

Today is #TimbuckTuesday, so in honor of the second weekday of the week, Tim has decided to let loose something new from his stable. And it comes from a hard-nosed emcee by the name of Big IL. Repping the South Side of the Go ILL, Big makes his FSD debut with the infectious “Paul George.” No injuries over here, though.
Check out the vivid imagery above, and grab the Mp3 below. Swish.
This completely flew under our radar when it dropped a few days ago. But low and behold, Nico Segal (Donnie Trumpet) and The O’My’s dropped a dope new project titled Family Cookout. This would’ve been perfect for the weekend, to play at an actual family cookout, but you know what they say: better late than never. Grab it below now.
Produced by Los Gueros
Recently, Chandler London hit the lab to knock out a few joints — and he recorded two very solid ones on the same night. The first being “Rollin,” which we premiered a few days ago, and “Rain” the darker of the two songs, which we bring you this evening. When it rains it pours, but Chandler keeps a couple umbrellas on deck. Prep for the storm below.

Nothing but greatness is oozing from Gino Marley this evening, as he releases his brand new, hot-off-the-press mixtape, Greater Than Great. Repping the Savage Squad Records crew, Gino has assembled an action packed lineup of features and producers to help make this his most successful outing to date.
Lil Herb, Fredo Santana, DJ Kenn, Young Chop, SD and Yung Gleesh all show up to contribute. Expect great things to come from Great. Give it some attention below.
Yesterday we brought you Kanye’s entire performance from Motownphilly’s leg of the Made In America Festival, and tonight we have Yeezy’s full set from his L.A. performance. Both joints were crazy, but it looks like the crowd in the City of Angels was just berserk. See just how intense it got below.
Watch the full thing under the jump…

Scheme is an artist we’ve been supporting for years here on FSD, so we definitely have to fill you in on his recent name change. The artist formerly known as Scheme, is now the artist currently known as Navarro. Got it? Good. Refer to him as such from now on.
So to kick-off the rebirth, Navarro has decided to bless his fans and fam with a new joint titled maybe, produced by the illustrious band-of-musicians, THEMpeople. Want the real deal on the record? Well, maybe I’ll give it to you. Nah, I’m just playing, it’s below.
Navarro, formerly known as Scheme*, releases new music produced by THEMpeople. Maybe, is a spoken word piece; an audio interpretation from a piece Navarro wrote and released a few weeks ago, which was shared by major Latino websites, as well as NBC Latino news analyst and more. He considered restructuring it into a “rap song format,” but this was not that. This had to stay the way he wrote it; every word. This isn’t anti-police. It is anti-authority figures, taking advantage of their authority. This is a means to understand why some of us have a certain perspective of law enforcers. It is an aide to help us each understand, that what we once were, doesn’t always resonate who we will become.
About a month ago, rising producer Hooligan joined forces with rising rapper Ric Wilson to craft the Opalescent Soul EP, which you can download here. Today they deliver a video from said project, the album-title joint that features crony David Ellis.
Before the summer season comes to a close, enjoy a breezy summer song just one last time. You know they’ve got soul.
