Childish Gambino Shares New Song, “Candler Road”

Seemingly out of nowhere and with absolutely no warning, Childish Gambino has gifted the internet a brand new track.

Almost nine months have passed since Childish Gambino – AKA Donald Glover – released his Sophomore album Because The Internet. Since that time, no new music from Gambino has surfaced online, which is admittedly a unique change of pace from the rapper’s previous years of promotion. Instead, Gambino has been traveling the country supporting his recent release, making several major festival appearances along the way. He’s never even mentioned working on new music in the public eye, but here we …

Dumb Rapper Ruins His Career By Leaking Drake’s New Single With His Own Verse On It

Unsigned rappers are thirsty fools, and every so often one of them decides to do something so ridiculous it demands our attention, if only to prevent others from doing the same stupid thing.

A relatively unknown rapper by the name of Erik Battle was given a copy an unfinished copy of Drake‘s latest, unreleased single in recent weeks. Instead of keeping the track to himself, like any intelligent person would do, Erik decided to record his own verse and add it to the track. To make matters worse, he then uploaded the track to the internet without permission from …

Puff Daddy And Guy Gerber Release ’11 11′ Album (For Free)

There was a rumor not too long ago that Puff Daddy and producer/DJ Guy Gerber were working on an album together. The story quickly spread around the net, but when no music surfaced in the immediate future people moved on. To be perfectly honest, we even thought the whole thing was a hoax, as our tiny critic minds could never imagine what would happen when those two creative minds got together.

Turns out, the album is very real. In fact, it’s complete and ready to be added to your music collection, for free, today.

Yesterday (August 21), Puff Daddy turned …

Mixtape: Lucki Eck$ – ‘Body High’

Chicago has become a hotbed for urban music talent in recent years, delivering the likes of Chance The Rapper, Taylor Bennett, Lil Durk, and more. Today, we add another name to that list, and who knows? You might find your new addiction as well.

Lucki Eck$ first burst onto the national scene with the 2013 release of his Alternative Trap mixtape. We did not feature that record when it debuted, and in hindsight that was probably a mistake on our part. Today, Lucki Eck$ released a new tape titled Body High, and we knew there was no way we …

Juicy J Shares “Low” Featuring Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby, and Young Thug

Juicy J has released a number of throwaway digital singles this year, but this post does not contain one of them. What we have here is the very first confirmed single off Juicy J’s upcoming studio album, and it’s one of the most star-studded tracks in recent memory.

“Low,” which was produced by Dr. Luke and Cirkut, founds its way online early this morning. The beat is rather minimalistic, but thanks to a slew of major guest appearances the song feels packed to the gills with radio-ready sounds waiting to be discovered. It’s a little odd to see Lil Bibby …
