Migos f/ Twista & Rich the Kid - "Remix" | New Music


Atlanta trio Migos - whose career pretty-much transformed overnight upon the release of Drake's remix of their track "Versace," which swiftly became one of this summer's big anthems - have just dropped a new track titled "Remix."

Joe Budden - No Love Lost | Album Review


Throughout his career Joe Budden has been considered many things - an outcast, a drunk, very much up himself, and more recently a sucker for love. While he may admit to being, or having been, one or some of these things, something has been missed. How about survivor? Judging from his recent verse on "Want You Back" with Fabolous and Cassie, as well as a few older joints, and his Slaughterhouse entries of course, Joey has physically, mentally, and emotionally been through the wars.

Bringing to the table his first official solo project since the conception of hip-hop supergroup Slaughterhouse, of which he is a part alongside Crooked I, Royce Da 5'9", and Joell Ortiz, Budden might have finally silenced his critics. Read more

Turbulent Times: Machine Gun Kelly talks ‘Lace Up’ mantra, the art of Raging, Diddy's antics

Remember that kid you picked on for not having the latest kicks? Or the one you made fun of for having problems at home? How about the one you beat up in the gym just because? Well that guy is now the most popular kid in school, and he goes by the name of Machine Gun Kelly.

Growing up was never easy for the Cleveland city native. Sleeping on other peoples couches, seeing close friends go to prison for life and witnessing family members just disappear became a regular occurrence. However, that’s all changed now after some seriously hard grafting, which in turn lead to him securing a record deal with, a man who knows a little thing or two about the music industry, Diddy.

Machine Gun Kelly - Lace Up | Album Review

An unlikely hero amongst the people, Machine Gun Kelly is the Cleveland City representer who went from sleeping on couches down on his luck to inspiring a generation of youths with his reality check rhymes and tales of hope. Signed to Diddy’s Bad Boy label, MGK is one of the premiering artists who are a part of Diddy’s Bad Boy reinvention. His rapid fire flow and emotionally driven lyrical content combine to create a well rounded individual who could well become an underground icon over time if he manages to keep his huge following in tact.

Twista f/ Juicy J - "Yo Bitch Chose Me" | New Music

As his Don Cannon-hosted mixtape RELOADED draws ever nearer, Twista serves up another sample of his forthcoming freebie. For "Yo Bitch Chose Me," the veteran Chicago emcee links up with Taylor Gang's high flyer (emphasis on the high) Juicy J, who lends both vocals and a smooth, cruising instrumental to the track. The boasts may be the same, but the two spitters' styles are practically polar opposities as Juicy melodically slurs, while Twista puts a good portion of mic handlers to shame, in usual fashion.

RELOADED will hit the net for free on September 4th. Prior to that, learn exactly why yo "bitch" dumped your ass for Juicy J and Twista below.
