FREE MP3: Bobby Shmurda – “Hot N*gga” (Boombox Cartel Remix)

The hottest song of the summer has just received a killer remix from one of the hottest production duos in music today.

The word is still out on whether or not Bobby Shmurda has the talent needed to establish a lasting presence in hip-hop, but for the time being “Hot Nigga” is keeping him on the tip of every industry exec’s tongue. He’s the up and comer to beat right now, even though he only has one song that anyone cares about. You may even think that song has started to grow stale, but after hearing the Boombox

Watch BRONCHO’s VHS-Ready Video for “Class Historian”

BRONCHO dropped their sophomore album Just Enough Hip To Be Woman yesterday, but we’ve been busy spinning “Class Historian” long before then. The single is catchy as ever, clocks in at the perfect length, and makes you wonder why you haven’t been listening to the band longer (or seen them live). Simply put, it’s about as perfect as a summer single gets.

Directed by George Salisbury and Delo Creative, the new music video for “Class Historian” sees BRONCHO appearing in some retro clips straight from a VHS tape. Prepare for some excellent curled phone cords, giant sweater clothing ads, …

REVIEW: The Madden Brothers – ‘Greetings From California’

Artist: The Madden Brothers
Album: Greetings From California
Genre: Pop, Rock

The Madden Brothers may have made their mint in the world of pop punk, but their latest collaborative release proves this duo are capable of far more than anyone could have imagined.

Greetings From California is the first release from Benji and Joel Madden to hit shelves under the name The Madden Brothers. It’s a fun and eclectic mix of music that strays far from the rock-driven world most think of whenever the pair are mentioned while digging deep into the works of those who influenced their creativity.

Transit Premiere “Rest To Get Better’ Video

Transit have premiered a video for the first single from their upcoming album, Joyride, over at Alternative Press.

“Rest To Get Better” comes highly anticipated after the band’s most recent release, Young New England, did not fair well with fans and critics.

Hear Three New Ryan Adams Songs

Earlier this year, country rock demi-god Ryan Adams put out his first self-titled, a great look at his timeless vocals and lyrics, as well as 1984, his 10-song punk record released on a 7-inch. Today we get to hear three songs that are also a part of that PAX-AM 7-inch singles series: “Jacksonville,” “I Keep Running,” and “Walkedypants.”

The 7-inch A-side highlights “Jacksonville,” whereas the B-side features the rustic “I Keep Running” and somewhat decent “Walkedypants.” The songs take a nice stroll through his country, blues, and folk roots and tally up to be ten minutes long in …

Yelawolf Streams “Till It’s Gone”

That tracks turns out to be the latest single from Yelawolf, and this morning the southern bred rapper posted the studio cut of that same track online.

“Till It’s Gone” continues Yelawolf’s long-running tradition of delivering deep lyrics while keeping the entertainment factor high throughout. It’s a track that becomes more and more interesting as it plays out, with a subtle sense of rage lying in wait underneath every bar. …
