Game & Drake Swap Bars About The Realities Of Fame On “100″

The Game and Drake just delivered a new single that is destined to take hip-hop by storm in no time at all.

Remember when Drake was spotted dropping a few unreleased bars to a sold out Detroit crowd late last month? That so-called freestyle was actually an unannounced preview for the Toronto native’s latest collaboration with California heavyweight The Game. “100″ finds the two top shelf emcees swapping bars that address the snakes in the grass who think they slink by unseen, as well as the reality of pursuing your dreams in a time where most feel unable to even …

Meek Mill Joins French Montana & Chris Brown On “Poppin” Remix

It seems impossible to deny the fact rappers are seriously enjoying Atlanta newcomer Rico Richie’s street anthem “Poppin’.”

Following a series of remixes from Lil Bibby and Troy Ave, Meek Mill has joined French Montana and Chris Brown for a remix of “Poppin’” that is destined to leave your speakers smoking. It’s pretty much the Meek Mill show from beginning to end, but Montana delivers a few signature yelps of “Hanh” to remind you why he’s one of the most overused collaborators in hip-hop today. Brown is forgettable, but that is typically the case when the pop star …

Well Kept Things Stream ‘Homegrown’ EP

The wait is over, pop punk fans. After months of teasing and just two song premieres, Well Kept Things have shared a stream of their debut EP with the world.

Homegrown is the result of several young lives spent almost entirely in upstate New York. Buffalo has proven to be a breeding ground for innovative new bands and Well Kept Things continue that trend with a unique indie spin on conventional pop punk that will have you singing along in no time at all. The album will be released properly tomorrow morning, June 16, but you might as well start …

Fetty Wap Drops “679″ Featuring Meek Mill And Rick Ross

“Trap Queen” superstar Fetty Wap is not taking his time in the spotlight for granted, and today he’s keeping us hooked on his unique sound by sharing a new track fans new and old are sure to love.

“679″ is the kind of radio-ready track that could further solidify Fetty Wap’s recently-earned title of Billboard chart topper. The song finds the New Jersey native going in over bass-heavy production with assistance from Maybach Music Group heavyweights Meek Mill and Rick Ross. Such features would overshadow a lesser artist, but “679″ remains Fetty’s track from beginning to end. You can …

Migos-2015-YRN

New Music: Migos – “John Wick” & “Pretty Little Lady”

Despite an ongoing legal battle that has left one member behind bars for over a month, Migos continue to share new music with fans. We shared one new song last week, and just last night two more tracks found their way online.

Produced by Deko, “John Wick” and “Pretty Little Lady” showcase two very different sides of the Migos men. The former, which takes its name from the 2014 Keanu Reeves film with the same title, lays a foundation ripe for off the cuff ego-rap that Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff make their own in no time at all. The latter, …

Pentimento Break Our Hearts With “Stuck Forever”

There is something strange that happens when someone finds themselves in an unhealthy situation for a prolonged amount of time. Despite their senses telling them everything is not okay, people find ways to convince themselves their inner voice is wrong. They forge ahead, though in their hearts they know it’s wrong, and ultimately lead themselves to the brink of depression. It’s a sad turn of events that happens to people every single day all over the world, and now those unfortunate souls have an anthem all their own.

Today, in anticipation for their new 7-inch, Pentimento released a song titled …

Goldlink

New Music: Goldlink – “Dance On Me”

The world has been waking up to the unique sound of Goldlink for the better part of the last year, and earlier today the D.C. native treated us with yet another exciting new track.

“Dance On Me,” which found its way online Monday afternoon, finds Goldlink offering his signature quick-spit sound over soulful production from Milo Mills and Hasta. It’s not the kind of a club banger that would have found its way onto his 2014 mixtape, The God Complex, but it’s also nothing you wouldn’t expect. It’s simply another side of Goldlink’s dynamic personality, and it should fit …

New Music: Eminem – “Phenomenal”

Today is a good day. Why? It’s simple: Eminem‘s contribution to the Southpaw soundtrack, “Phenomenal,” is finally here.

Having been teased through a series of short clips that found their way online earlier in the year, “Phenomenal” is the latest in a string of single releases from the Detroit native that have come from places other than a new LP. There is a bit of sadness in that fact, as it has been nearly two years since Em’s last studio album, but thankfully “Phenomenal” is a track that earns its promising title.

Both inspiring and typically dark, “Phenomenal” is …

New Music: Meek Mill – “Check”

Rick Ross tried to tell us #MeekSeason was coming, but we didn’t know it would be here so soon.

Tonight, June 1, Meek Mill debuted a new track titled “Check.” Featuring production from Metro Boomin and Southside, the song features Mill going in with bar after bar about money, women, and the hustle you need to have in order to make that money other rappers only claim to possess. Cosmic Kev premiered the song at 8PM EST, and within minutes a studio quality recording hit the net. You can stream the track below.

It’s unclear whether or not “Check” …

Pop Evil Premiere “Footsteps”

Update #1: Footage of Pop Evil performing “Footsteps” live for the first time ever has also appeared online. That footage, as well as the official song stream, can be found at the end of this post.

Original post: Michigan hard rock juggernaut Pop Evil have shared the first single from their upcoming album, and I’m willing to bet it’s not what you were expecting them to deliver.

“Footsteps” is the first official offering from Pop Evil’s Up, the immensely anticipated follow-up to 2013′s Onyx, to find its way online. The song premiered at noon today, June 1, on …

We-Came-As-Romans-2015

SINGLE REVIEW: We Came As Romans – “The World I Used To Know”

Artist: We Came As Romans
Song: “The World I Used To Know”
Album: Self-Titled

The evolution of We Came As Romans is entangled with the band’s own passion for storytelling and inspirational lyricism. Their journey is their song, and their songs detail their journey. Having long conquered the world of post-hardcore with multiple albums featuring top shelf production and the perfect combination of sing/scream vocals, the group have now stripped their music to its core, and through doing so found a new sound that marks the beginning of yet another chapter in their already celebrated career.…

The Weeknd Drops “The Hills”

The Weeknd may still be enjoying the success of his single “Earned It,” but he’s back today with a new single and video fans are sure to enjoy.

“The Hills” arrives online just two days after a number of unexpected leaks from The Weeknd hit the net (including the incredible “I Can’t Feel My Face“). Whether this release is a response to those leaks or an attempt to better control the conversation remains unclear, but the quality of this material is undeniable. There is very little to the song that is outside the typical sound of …
