OH GOD WHY: Billy Ray Cyrus Releases “Achy Breaky 2″ Featuring Buck 22

Someone check on the devil because Hell may have just frozen over.

Back in January, there was a day or two when the internet was buzzing with talk of a potential hip-hop remix of the 1991 Billy Ray Cyrus classic “Achy Breaky Heart” being in the works. It turns out there was quite a bit of truth to that rumor, and this afternoon “Achy Breaky 2″ made its debut online.

Featuring Buck 22, which is a name no one at UTG has heard before today, “Achy Breaky 2″ finds the father of Miley Cyrus attempting to bring his biggest hit …

STREAM: Lupe Fiasco – Lamborghini Angels

Chicago’s Lupe Fiasco has never been one to shy away from sensitive subject matter, and those needing proof need look no further than tonight’s leak off his highly anticipated new album, Food & Liquor 2.

“Lamborghini Angels” has been teased for over a week, most notably because of Lupe’s explicit warning to easily offended fans. Taking to Twitter last week, Lupe wrote:

WARNING: If you are easily offended or religiously sensitive DO NOT listen to #LamborghiniAngels it contains very strong subject matter.

Why such a precaution? In classic Lupe fashion, the “Kick, Push” emcee delivers another lyrical onslaught with …

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Birdman Ft Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, & Rick Ross – Born Stunna (Remix)

Seems like we can never post about a hiphop powerhouse without someone from Young Money coincidentally having something big to announce as well. Last night was no different as the arrival of G.O.O.D. Music’s “New God Flow” was challenged by the release of a new remix to Birdman’s “Born Stunna.” The track features spots from Nicki, Weezy, and Ross, but I cannot help feeling like it’s all something we’ve heard before. Click past the jump, stream the remix, then comment and let me know if you feel the same way. YMCMB grind hard, but no one can say they spit …

The moment hiphop heads have been waiting for all week has arrived.

Serving as the second single off G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer compilation, “New God Flow” pairs Kanye West with Pusha T for a near five minute spree of bars over piano sample. Definitely not what we expected after hearing “Mercy,” but oh so good. Kanye is in rare form. Click past the jump to stream, download, and experience “New God Flow.”

Cruel Summer will not hit shelves until August, but we’re already chomping at the bit for a chance to hear more.
