Take a minute to check out Amerikas Addiction’s newest single “Lights”. Even though this track will not be on AA’s highly anticipated album, “The Key”, dropping on September 11th, 2012, it provides a good idea of what we can hope to hear. Preliminary info on “The Key” includes production by big names like:

The star-packed cyphers at this year’s BET’s Hip-Hop Awards were definitely the most talked about events of the night. What I noticed most was Wiz Khalifa’s recycled verse from “The Check Point” that’s on his collab mixtape with Curren$y. Come on, Wiz – you’re better than that! Here’s the video of the cypher in question:
Part 1: Wiz Khalifa, Bones Brigante, Yelawolf & Raekwon The Chef
Here’s the original track:
I know Wiz isn’t the best freestyle rapper as he discusses here:
But he could’ve at least come up with an original verse for this event.
The G.O.O.D. Music cypher was definitely the highlight for me. Big Sean’s verse was my personal fav:
Part 4: Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean, Cyhi The Prynce & Common
Here are the rest of the cyphers:
Part 2: Ice Cube, OMG, DoughBoy, Rev Run, Diggy Simmons & Jo-Jo
Part 3: Busta Rhymes, Reek Da Villian, Zawcain & Mickey Factz
Part 5: Royce Da 5’9″, Tyga, Kuniva & Diamond
Kanye’s can now be added to the list:
Now listen to this section of his “Dark Fantasy” single:
Here’s the full song in an excerpt from Kanye’s film, “Runaway”:
Haven’t been able to post since Friday, so I’m just posting some random new songs that have come out recently. Check ’em out and lemme know what you think!
Pretty ridiculous song, but I actually really like it. Wayne comes with a quality verse, and the rest of Young Money kills it. What do you expect though when you got Wayne, Drake & Jae Millz on a track. My fav verse is prob the second by Drake. Straight up killlllllls it. Wayne’s new official mixtape is called “Hottest Nigga Under The Sun“. Oh and Drake has a new mixtape called “So Far and Gone” that should be out soon so check back for that!
I’ve been wanting to post a song by The Dream for awhile now. I think he is pretty dope and a lot his new songs have been quality. This song is a lil old, but I still like it. It is kinda short though… I almost posted The Dream’s newer song “Stripper Love”, but I’m not feeling the CDQ version with Too $hort. Anyways, let me know if you wanna hear more from The Dream. His new CD should be droppin sometime soon…
Wayne teams up with some veterans in the game… I like the beat a lot. Q-Tip’s CD (The Renaissance) that came out late in ’08 was pretty legit; he always seems to have dope beats. I’m not a huge fan of Busta or Raekwon but mad respect.
Here’s N.A.S.A.’s newest song. They also came out with a track called “N.A.S.A. Music”, but that one features E-40 and he kinda annoys me haha. I’m not really feelin this one as much as some of their other songs, but maybe some of you will like it.
I’ve been following the Teriyaki Boyz for a few years now. Despite their lame name, they actually make some dope songs. The first song that caught my attention was “Tokyo Drift” from the Fast & Furious movie. Not gonna lie, the new Fast & Furious looks pretty sik… Plus their association with Pharrell automatically makes them legit; guaranteed sik beats. Check their most recent video for “Zock On” with Pharrell and Busta Rhymes; kinda cool:
