New Music: Kid Cudi “All Talk ‘ (feat. Chip Tha Ripper & Christian Bale)

Mikey: By now, your Memorial Day playlist should be coming together nicely. Above, check out a new record Cudi released via his blog that also features Chip Tha Ripper & Christian Bale.

After the jump, new music from Jim Jones, Major Lazer, Estelle x Nas, Sean Price and Pill. (more…)

Mikey: Well, Rihanna’s latest video sprung an early leak and is now circulating through the internets. The Anthony Madler directed music video was shot last April at the Chateau de Vigny in France and also stars French supermodel,  Laetitia Costa.
(Thanks JustJared)

MissInfo: hmm, well first off, I love this song. One of my favorites on Rihanna’s less-than-heralded album. I also loved “Cold Case Love” but that’s neither here nor there. This video confuses me. The hook is Spanish, and the Flamenco stomping on the beat is too. But Rihanna and this latter-day model is in the French countryside. They’re writhing around alot, and there’s clearly some weird sexual tension, but why? Because the chateau has not been modernized with electricity? This is like a Meatloaf video, mixed with Brideshead Revisted, mixed with one of those 70’s Emmanuelle soft-core porns. And styled by Agent Provocateur.



New Music: Kanye West feat. Dwele “Power (co-produced by Symbolyc One and Kanye)

(props to Perajok for emailing at 5am, leaked by this mysterious microsite, see after the jump for details)

No one man should have all that power…

Fuck SNL and they whole cast, tell ’em Yeezy said they can kiss my whole ass…

Colin Powers Austin Power, lost in translation with a whole fuckin’ nation. They say I was the abomination of a Obama’s nation, well that’s a pretty bad way to start a conversation. At the end of the day, Goddamnit, I’m chillin’ and shit. I know damn well y’all feelin’ this shit. I don’t need your p—y, bitch, I’m on my own dick….how Ye doing? I’m survivin’.  I was drinking earlier, now I’m driving. Where the bad bitches, huh? Where y’all hiding? I got the power to make ya’ life, so excitin’.

The genius of this is….the man takes a sabbatical, a hiatus, a break. The mainstream thinks he is going on a self-inflicted punishment, lol…..and he comes back from paradise flipping’ the bird at the world.

I. Love. That. I don’t care about the wrongs and rights of the past. This song is knocking, and the energy is inspiring.

Now the weekend can finally start. With a real stank ‘sididdy attitude ; )

Lyrics, producer details, and more…after the jump….(UPDATED)

MTV just premiered this rock-ish clip from Weezy and ¡Mayday! that was shot in Miami right before (one of the times) he turned himself in to the court….(thanks to Shake/2DopeBoyz for the heads up)

Director David Rousseau spoke on the pressure of the shoot:
“It was basically a ‘Mission: Impossible’ [scenario]: This is your mission if you choose to accept it. Everybody is onboard, because everybody knows what’s at stake. Unlike T.I. and some of these other guys that’s disappeared while they were in, the point is to keep Wayne [visible] on TV and everything for whatever time he’s in. There was a plan in action. Slim and Baby really could foresee that. He’s at the height of his career. You can’t let that momentum slip.”

Lil Wayne freestyles w/ ¡Mayday!, plus a preview of “Knockout” (ft. Nicki Minaj)
NMC Exclusive: Drake feat. Lil Wayne “Miss Me” (CD Quality) (Updated)
Exclusive: Lil Wayne calls from Rikers, “I got in a lil’ trouble…I can’t live without the music
