cozz im tha man

J. Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive isn’t the only Dreamville album that has carried us into the new year; Cozz & Effect, the full-length debut from the label’s South Central rookie Cozz, has also stayed in heavy rotation, and today he delivers a video for one of the project’s standout songs, “I’m Tha Man.” The 2-Tone-directed clip depicts a classic Cali cookout before Cozz takes the party indoors as the sun goes down. We’ve got a feeling we’ll still be bumping this by the time summer comes around.

A somber A$AP Rocky did his best to hold it together and gave a few words to Billboard on the passing of A$AP Yams. While at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah to attend the screening of his acting debut in the film Dope, the grief stricken rapper set the record straight on his friend’s death.

“People were saying that Yams overdosed on drugs — he didn’t overdose on any drugs,” Rocky said, though he declined to discuss the real cause of Yams’ passing. “I feel like people feel that way because that’s all he’s in pictures doing. When you see A$AP Yams you see Hennessey or purple drink, you see some type of controlled substance or illegal narcotic.”

Yams’ funeral service was held today at Frank E Campbell Funeral Chapel in Harlem.

While we’re all still trying to process Rihanna’s countrified collabo with Kanye West and Sir Paul McCartney, the rap Gods decided to go ahead and bless our Saturday night with this new banger from Lil Wayne and Migos called “Amazing Amy.” This one’s for all the girls out there that can “swallow the d*ck like a Heineken.” God bless you, Quavo.

Wayne spends most of the outro apologizing for “the wait,” suggesting that this song might be a leftover from Sorry 4 The Wait 2. In which case, let’s hope it’s being saved for Tha Carter V instead (which, pending an $8 million lawsuit against Birdman, might actually see the light of day soon).

Hi Rihanna….
Out the blue, RiRi tweeted a link to her website with the first song off her upcoming album. “FourFiveSeconds” is an acoustic pop-rock ballad featuring the heaviest of hitters…Kanye West and the legendary Paul McCartney (who? lol.)

Here’s a line from Kanye’s verse:

“Woke up an optimist, sun was shining I’m positive, then I heard you was talkin’ trash, hold me back I’m bout to spazz…I’m four, five seconds from wilding and we got 3, 4 days ’til Friday…If I go to jail tonight, promise you’ll pay my bail…”

Hahaa…this is like the happiest theme for anger management therapy ever.
