As the DJ Mustard-produced “Don’t Panic” runs the clubs, the Bronx rapper returns to the streets on “Suicide.” Dealing with paranoia, Montana goes into storytelling mode, telling a tale from the dark surroundings those from the street life can relate to.

Can’t get enough of music’s most powerful couple? There’s more to come around the corner according to reports. Beyoncé and Jay Z are working on a joint album. On Tuesday afternoon, DJ Skee revealed on DASH Radio that the pair have a collaborative project on the way, inspired by their recent “On the Run” stadium tour. While they’ve done hit records together, most recently “Drunk In Love” off Beyoncé’s self-titled LP, this will be their first album together.

The couple just wrapped up their “On the Run” tour in Paris, France, that will debut on HBO September 20 at 9 p.m. EST.

john-starks-hq-espn

Former New York Knicks great John Starks appeared on ESPN’s Highly Questionable on Tuesday afternoon. Along with speaking on his classic dunk over Michael Jordan, and how he proposed to his wife, Starks touched on The Notorious B.I.G.’s Life After Death-classic “I Got a Story to Tell.”

On the Buckwild, Chucky Thompson & Puff Daddy-produced song, Biggie raps braggadocious about robbing a New York Knicks player that stood 6’5″ tall. For decades many have debated as to who that player was, many suggesting John Starks was the unknown victim. Fast forward to Tuesday afternoon, where ESPN’s Bomani Jones asked Starks about the record. While 6’2″ Starks says the record was not about him, he does know who the King of New York was referring to, though he won’t reveal the person’s identity.

kanye west australia

By now we’ve all seen Kanye West scream at the top of his lungs about how he’s the next Steve Jobs or Walt Disney, but his mid-show speech in Brisbane, Australia last night was… different. Amidst controversy surrounding a recent wheelchair incident (recap: he asked every member of the audience to stand up, and after confusion surrounding two handicapped fans he didn’t realize were unable to stand, the show continued), Mr. West hit back at the media for unnecessarily sensationalizing the story and intentionally slandering his character.

The interlude almost felt like a casual conversation between Kanye and the crowd as he vented his frustration with reading biased reports about himself, at one point pleading, “take a step back for a second and look at this: I’m a married Christian man with a family.” However, perhaps Ye’s most powerful statement came when he asked the audience, “How many people here ever heard one of my songs on their way to work or they heard it and it made them feel better?” And as “Spaceships” instantly enters our minds, we’re reminded that Kanye, the kid from Chicago who made music to help us get through our shitty day, is still in there somewhere behind that diamond-encrusted mask.

4

Expect some insane sneakerheads to be caught trying to rob your local party supply store at the end of the month. One Halloween manufacturer just recieved the rights from Universal to reproduce some “Marty Mcfly” replica sneakers as a costume.

Obviously, someone at the company had their eyes on the sneaker blogs when they came up with this idea. The Air Mag inspired kicks do look pretty onpoint but to think they will be as good as Nike’s version—you’re dead wrong.

rich homie quan metro boomin

While Mike WiLL Made It remains the most recognizable hit maker out of Atlanta, Metro Boomin is right on his heels. At just 21 (officially, as of today), the young producer has worked with a laundry list of current stars, from Future (“Honest“) and 2 Chainz (“Crib In My Closet“) to YG (“1 AM“) and Travi$ Scott (“Skyfall“).

As he looks to bolster his own brand with his forthcoming 20 & Boomin project — the follow-up to last year’s 19 & Boomin — Metro calls on Rich Homie Quan for the project’s latest track, “Too Short.” Equal parts celebratory and sobering, the song comes complete with a Cam Kirk-directed video capturing Atlanta’s sunny skyline.
