the-weeknd-king-of-the-fall-remix

The Weeknd is coming with the remixes. A week after blasting off a new version of “Often” with TDE’s ScHoolboy Q and MMG’s own Rick Ross, the XO singer gives his other single “King of the Fall” a new lineup. For its official remix, The Weeknd grabs Taylor Gang’s Ty Dolla $ign for their second collaboration, and his XO running mate out of Montreal, Belly.

It’s been years since we heard Joe Budden open his “Ordinary Love Shit” saga back up. Back in 2011, he had us hanging off our seats with Part 3 — where he aired out all that went wrong in his past relationship with Esther Baxter. However on Part 4, Joey pries up a familiar can of worms and goes into detail about his tumultuous relationship with Tahiry. The same one documented for the world on Love and Hip-Hop.

Tired of hearing how you’ll never trust me again
How you love me, then you hate me, then you love me again
One minute I’m your soul-mate then it’s fuck me again
Until you get horny enough and wanna fuck me again

Pre-order the Some Love Lost EP here.

big krit cadillactica

After popping up on the remix to alt-J’s “Every Other Freckle” earlier today, Big K.R.I.T. debuts the first episode in his new vlog series, The Making of Cadillactica, which gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at his eagerly awaited forthcoming album. Part one takes us down to Miami where K.R.I.T. cooks up his latest single “Pay Attention” with the help of Rico Love and Jim Jonsin. As Krizzle finally branches out with his sophomore LP, he’s able to receive key advice from these established hit makers.

UPDATE: Check out part two below, as K.R.I.T. and DJ Dahi take us behind the title track, “Cadillactica.”

While breaking Wilt Chamberlain’s infamous “record-setting” claim to fame, Too Short transforms into a hilarious animated dog in his “19,999” video. While entertaining a pack of b*tches, hitting the Maury show, and jet setting on private planes, the K-9 Short Dog proves he knows the game just as well as the OG.

Purchase “19,999” on iTunes.

Hoops, rhymes and life. From The Cage to Kaiser Park, barrel brothers™ Skyzoo and Torae take us on a tour of a few classic NYC street ball courts in the video for “Memorabilia,” taken from their joint album. You already know Torae had to pull out the Shuttlesworth throwback for this one.

kanye jay z guilt trip

Symbolyc One, who cracked the lid on both Kanye and Kendrick’s upcoming albums earlier this year, shared some interesting tidbits about one particular Yeezus track during a recent interview with DJ Booth. The G.O.O.D. Music collaborator, who crafted “Power” and “Murder to Excellence,” revealed that “Guilt Trip” was originally intended for Watch The Throne (which makes sense: the song is cut from that same shiny cloth, while 2011 was around the last time Kid Cudi recorded with Kanye).

What’s more, Hov loved the beat so much he even recorded a “freestyle” verse for it. Whether we’ll ever hear that is another question entirely (but if there’s three things you can rely on, it’s death, taxes and the rap Internet leaking songs).

freddie gibbs madlib knicks remix

In case Pinata isn’t already at the top of your end-of-year list, Freddie Gibbs and Madlib will be dropping a friendly reminder with the Knicks Remix EP on November 18. The project includes a couple of bonus tracks and instrumentals, as well as an updated version of the album cut “Knicks,” featuring New York’s own Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$ and Ransom. Secretly, I’m more excited for that new collaboration with BJ The Chicago Kid, especially after playing “Shame” nonstop for the last two years.

fka twigs throughglass

I’ll be honest, I haven’t really felt compelled to give Google Glass a go (I’m fine just staring down at my iPhone and avoiding awkward, inadvertent eye contact, thanks), but if there is one person who could sway my decision, it’s probably FKA twigs. The British songstress puts Google’s optical technology to bizarre use in this self-directed concept video titled “#throughglass.”

The two-minute clip sees twigs showing off some serious dance moves (she was a backup dancer before breaking out as a solo artist) in front of a set of full-length mirrors, while she watches her favorite dance videos straight off YouTube in the corner of her eye. Things get even weirder when a group of FKA twigs look-a-likes invade her private dance session. Who knows what it all means exactly, but it sure as hell looks good.

big sean idfwu naya rivera

Spoiler alert: Sean didn’t actually answer that question (or, at the very least, tried his best to dance around it). “I feel like it’s an anthem. The song ain’t about one person,” the G.O.O.D. Music rapper told Cipha Sounds when quizzed whether his new single, “I Don’t Fuck With You,” was aimed at his ex-fiancée, Naya Rivera. “A lot of people think I’m super salty or it was a super diss record to one person. Yes, I did touch on that, obviously, but that’s what I do — I rap about what I go through.”

Still, that hasn’t stopped Sean from firing more shots at Naya during his recent performances, tweaking the lyrics on “All Me” to “My old girl is on ‘Glee’ and shit/Probably making less money than me and shit.” Ouch.

thelonious martin mac miller

Like a younger version of The Alchemist, Thelonious Martin has his finger — and fingerprints — firmly on the pulse of what’s cool. The Chicago producer’s long-awaited project, Wünderkid, is set to feature a who’s who of indie rap, from Ab-Soul and Domo Genesis to Curren$y and Smoke DZA. But in case you’ve been hitting the snooze button on Thelonious and his many dope beats these last few years, then allow this groovy new cut “Her,” featuring the soothing vocals of Mac Miller, to gently wake your ass up (kinda like that Sleep Cycle app, for my fellow insomniacs).

The track is just a loosie to warm us up for the release of Wünderkid on December 2, but you can still expect to hear Mac on the album — hopefully on something half as good as this.
