Haitian Fresh is now part of the Brick Squad Monopoly and rightfully puts out a remix with a Waka feature. I don't fuck with fake daps either. BOW BOW BOW!!
Magazeen is nice! Maybach Music needs to get him some more features because he has that Beenie Man sound that could seriously take over a house party, club, or whatever type of venue. Use him wisely.
Fat Joe ft. Kanye West, Miguel, Jadakiss, Mos Def, DJ Khaled, Roscoe Dash & Busta Rhymes-Pride N Joy
When I first saw the features I thought it was going to be some kind of rap all star song but it's not. Most of these features are hidden somewhere in the song. Still a good song but not what you think it was.
Pusha T threw some shots to some rapper that was signed to another nigga that was signed to another nigga. He said it. Lil Wayne bit on it, pause and now we have a beef that has been reignited.
I rarely hear remixes that are better than the original versions. This coast to coast remix is definitely better than the original because of the diverse selection and for some reason I'm focused on that "Hey bitch, try this."
Karmaloop Music & Rocksmith partner with legendary Philadelphia rapper Freeway on the release of the Freedom of Speech project. Freedom features all new original songs exclusive to this project. The second video of the release is the soulful "Let you know."

And Complex does it again. DJ Funkmaster Flex is one of the kings of talking that slick shit on the NYC radio. Hot 97 must be proud. My favorite so far is They're bitter and tight...Lemon Style!!
"Money Makin'" is the new collab from A-Trak and Dillon Francis, out now on Fool's Gold.
In keeping with the two DJs' absurd sense of humor, they star in the clip as repairmen who transform a busted ATM into a hard-partying dance machine that takes the big city by storm... until the dough runs out.
Directed by Ben Solomon and Daniel B Levin, and featuring cameos from P-Thugg of Chromeo, rap legend Greg Nice, Action Bronson and more, "Money Makin'" is yet another must-see FG music video, and the perfect kick-off to summer jam season.

Talk slow move fast. Mystikal teams up with Galactic and Mannie Fresh for the video for this amazing track.
This ended up in my inbox and I'm not mad at this remix at all. Just something new over to move your body to. If not then keep it moving.

Frank Ocean put out a video of him previewing a new song called "Summer Remains." This man is talented and I'm glad he's making these kind of videos. Check out the lyrics below as well. Just a warning that you may have this on repeat for a while.
Black & Single is a web-series that follows the lives of Oni and Jesse. Two young, single and black professionals that work in the same office building and are seemingly perfect for each other. There is one problem. They never meet. They intersect each others lives at hilarious and various moments while searching for love when true love passes them by everyday unwittingly. Will they ever meet? Only time will tell. I watched the firs two episodes and it's pretty damn funny and entertaining.
Pepsi MAX went to a pick-up game in Bloomfield, NJ pretending to shoot a documentary on a basketball player named "Kevin." When his Uncle Drew came into the game, some magical things happened. I get buckets. I wish Kyrie had a better old man voice.
All I have to say is that Top Dawg Entertainment is in good hands with Ab-Soul, Kendrick, Schoolboy Q and more. Ab-Soul's latest album is out right now entitled Control System.
Despite his trans-continental fame, multiple grammy wins, and nearly perfect 'do, a lot of people still don't know what to make of Skrillex. With that in mind, we asked our panel of adorable tots, tykes, and toddlers to give us their honest opinion of "Bangarang," the prince of dubstep's wobbly banger. Best comment is about how nightclubs are stupid. I feel the same way.
