Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Dogg and Akon "Kush"


"Neil Young" feat. Bruce Springsteen "Whip My Hair"

Jimmy Fallon aka Neil Young joins Bruce Springsteen for this hilarious, and surprisingly well done cover of Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair." Pure genius.

Kanye west - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Review

So as you may know Kanye West's upcoming album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy comes out November 22nd. However, about a week ago this album was leaked on the internet. It was the clean version of the album. Many of you may know that I am not a big backer of Mr. West. Through everything he has done, I just have not been impressed. However, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is an AMAZING album. The other feature artists (Rihanna, Kid Cudi, Raekwon, Jay-Z, Pusha-T, etc.) on this album are incredible. The beats to most of these songs are incredible as well. The thing that impresses me most though, is the difference in sound of almost every song. Blame Game sounds like an R&B song and Gorgeous has an alternative rock type of feel. This album was well produced and I believe that it will be a top seller for a while. The only downfall I see right now, is that some of the songs were songs that he released on G.O.O.D. Fridays. Overall, this album gets a 9/10.

Favorite Tracks Thus Far - Dark Fantasy, All of the Lights, Runaway, Blame Game, Lost in the World

Curren$y - Pilot Talk II Michael Knight Remix Video

Curren$y X Raekwon - Michael Knight Remix from Creative Control on Vimeo.

Here's a sample of the Michael Knight remix set to be on Pilot Talk II, which drops November 22nd. Raekwon + Curren$y = great track.

Girl Talk "All Day"

And just like that, Monday became a whole lot better. This morning Pittsburgh artist Gregg Gillis (more commonly known as Girl Talk), unleashed his newest album All Day, for free download from his label Illegal Art. If you've heard anything from Girl Talk before, you know what to expect. If you haven't, just click the link below.

Jay Electronica feat. Jay-Z and The Dream "Shiny Suit Theory"

Roc Nation's newest signee joins up with Mr. Carter and Mr. Nash on this track. Hopefully Jay Elect's recent record deal means we'll get more stuff from him in a timely manner.

Ellie Goulding "Your Song (Video)"

Welsh songstress Ellie Goulding lends her soft, delicate voice to the Sir Elton John classic. Ellie really made the song her own, while still retaining the overall atmosphere of the original. This song will be available on the re-release of her excellent debut Lights, titled Bright Lights. Out November 23rd.

Kanye West feat. Talib Kweli and Consequence "Chain Heavy"

Ohhhh man. Been waiting on this one since those Kanye West at the Facebook headquarters surfaced a few months ago. Happy G.O.O.D. Fraturdays.

J. Cole "Friday Night Lights (Mixtape)"

It's what ya'll been waitin' for, ain't it?

jj "Let Them"

The Swedish baleric-pop duo is back with another Akon sampling gem. This time 'Kon's "Right Now (Na, Na, Na)" gets the dream-pop reworking, and as per usual with jj, it's near perfect.

J. Cole "Before I'm Gone"

Cole let loose this little preview from his Friday Night Lights mixtape, out this Friday the 12th. Absolutely cannot wait for that to drop.

Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y "Huey Newton"

New stuff from Taylor Gang x Jets. Loving the sample...

Brenton Duvall "Mean Planes and Taylor Gangs"

Never heard of this guy before, but this mash-up is pretty ridiculous. It takes Taylor Swift's "Mean" and mashes it with Wiz Khalifa's "This Plane." Good stuff.

Bon Iver "The Wolves Act I and II (Video)"

Like it or not, winter is on its way. With the recent departure from daylight savings time, the sun is going to be setting a lot earlier. In my opinion, this song and video epitomize winter, so enjoy.

Chiddy Bang x The Knocks "Dancing with the DJ"

Chiddy Bang has made a career out of taking popular (and not so popular), indie rock tunes, totally reworking them, and then rapping over them. This time they take The Knocks' "Dancing with the DJ," and add a little something extra. Another ridiculous remix.

Drake "Fall for Your Type (Same Mistakes)"

We've heard the Jamie Foxx version, now we've got the original (and highly anticipated) reference from Aubrey himself.

Kanye West "All of the Lights"

There were too many artists on it to fit in the title bar, so here: Tony Williams, The Dream, Rihanna, Charlie Wilson, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Elly Jackson, Ryan Leslie, Alicia Keys, and Sir Elton John. Wow. This version is probably a bit different than the album version, but it at least gives us a taste of this MONSTER track. MBDTF out Nov. 22nd.

Sufjan Stevens "That Dress Looks Nice on You"

Possibly my favorite Sufjan song of all time. Yea it's a little old, but if one person listens to it for the first time, and loves it as much as I do, I've done my job.

Salem "King Night"

This album/song/group are kinda old (by today's standards), but I've recently become intrigued with them, especially this song. Salem is often described as a southern gothic/electronic/drag/etherial wave band, which may not make much sense to those who have not listened to them. In any event, this song did not resonate much with me at first. That is until I heard the sample. It sample's a choral rendition of "O, Holy Night," and it works to perfection. It seems odd that the combination of purely grating bass and synths would seamlessly combine with one of the most beautiful Christmas songs, but it does.

Wale "Aston Martin Music (Freestyle)"

Wale hits up the Rick Rozay/Drizzy hit.
