We have been posting about Marco and his fellow WFFW members since the release of their “Rick James” video. It …


Miguel Updates “Coffee” With A New Verse From Wale

I think we can all agree the world is ready for a new album from Miguel. I don’t know when that creation will arrive, but the young singer-songwriter has released an updated take on his viral hit “Coffee (Fucking)” that you won’t soon forget.

Miguel and Wale found a lot of success with “Lotus Flower Bomb,” so it only makes sense that they collaborate again on the updated version of “Coffee (Fucking).” It’s still the Miguel show from beginning to end, but smack dab in the middle is a new verse from Wale that is on par, if not …


Game & Dej Loaf Become The Best Duo Of 2015 With “Ryda”

West Coast edge meets Midwest born flows on the latest collaborative track from The Game and Dej Loaf.

There have been a lot of collaborative singles, albums, and mixtapes throughout the history of hip-hop, but more often than not those joint efforts fail to live up to the hype or quality of the projects released by the individuals that make up this new ‘super duo.’ Surprisingly, that is not the case with “Ryda,” the latest single from Game and Dej Loaf. These two go together like crunchy peanut butter and homemade jelly, and the song they’ve created is equally …

The 12-track effort follows 2013’s Fade Away, and was recorded in Hollywood, California alongside producer Wally Gagel (New Order, Muse).

Tame Impala Stream “Disciples”

You never know what kind of awesome things will happen when someone agrees to participate in a Reddit AMA.

Last night, a fan asked Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker to release a new song while the band was taking part in an ‘Ask Me Anything’ event on Reddit. Much to everyone’s surprise, the band obliged! “Disciples” is the third song we’ve heard from Tame Impala’s forthcoming third album, following the recent releases of “Let It Happen” and “‘Cause I’m A Man.” It’s a far less epic song, coming in at just under two minutes in length, but it’s an odyssey …


REQUIRED LISTENING: Leon Bridges Shares “River”

We have been hyping the forthcoming superstardom of Leon Bridges since the fall of 2014. Since that time he has released three incredible singles, each offering a different side of his undeniably timeless throwback sound, and with his latest release Bridges has us believing there is nothing that can stop this young man from becoming the new big thing.

“River” is a variation on the classic gospel song of the same name. Accompanied by just his guitar at the state, Bridges navigates the song with earnest emotion and powerful vocals. It’s not the sock hop style music he has shared …

HOLY SH!T: Tech N9ne And Corey Taylor (Slipknot) Drop Mind-Blowing Track

So Tech N9ne isn’t holding anything back with guest spots on his upcoming LP, Special Effects. Songs have already surfaced featuring Eminem, B.O.B. and 2 Chainz — with the tracks featuring spots from T.I, Hopsin, Lil Wayne and many others slated to appear on the record, which drops next Tuesday.

But none compare to “Wither,” the track that premiered yesterday via Loudwire, with Tech alongside Slipknot’s Corey Taylor. The composition of the song comes across as a best-of-both-worlds, with Tech’s rhythmic, frantic rapping fused alongside the occult drum patterns synonymous with Slipknot.

Taylor is brash and emotional, while …
