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 …

The Money Pit Will Fill The Hole Left By Gatsby’s American Dream

You can cut your hair and dress better than you did in college, but deep down all your mid-oughts emo and scene kids know your heart will always be glued to your shoulder with the permanent adhesive known as Jesse Lacey’s best lyrics. I know it and you know it. Just accept it and we can move on.

Alright. We all know the best bands of that era died too soon and most of those who didn’t have done everything in their power to evolve into something more than they were when they mattered to you. I prefer the ones …

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 …

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, …

REVIEW: Sudden Suspension – ‘There’s A Bigger Picture Here’

Artist: Sudden Suspension
Album: There’s A Bigger Picture Here
Label: Bad Timing Records

This is the sound of growing up.

For their third EP, Indiana natives Sudden Suspension have tasked themselves with encapsulating what it feels like to grow up in 2015, along with all the challenges one encounters along the way. From getting over heartache, to learning to love yourself, there is something here for everyone who has found themselves making the often painful transition from child to adult, and it’s all conveyed through infectious pop punk too good to resist.

If the world can thank Dan ‘Soupy’ Campbell …

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 …

Iwrestledabearonce Give Us Chills (and Thrills) With “Green Eyes”

With less than a week to go before Hail Mary arrives in stores, Iwrestledabearonce have shared a new video for “Green Eyes” that is sure to leave an impression.

Appearing wrapped in a live snake that explores her body as if her flesh is its home, vocalist Courtney LaPlante is the star of IWABO’s “Green Eyes” video. Her influence on the band was present on 2013′s Late For The Party, but the change toward a darker, heavier sound with Hail Mary has given her a chance to shine like never before. Her vocals, both piercing and angelic in equal …

Leon Bridges Claims The Pop Music Crown With “Smooth Sailin”

We first told you about Leon Bridges‘ new single, “Smooth Sailin’” when it premiered online at the beginning of the month. Now, just a week later, the Texas native has shared the song’s official video.

The setup for “Smooth Sailin’” is simple and fitting, especially when one considers the numerous influences that inspired Bridges to create the sound he promotes today. Dressed in a green suit and surrounded by his fantastic band, Bridges appears on an empty soundstage for a straightforward performance of the dancehall-ready single. It’s beautifully lit, wonderfully edited, and as a finished product, it …

Parkway Drive Is (Still) The Best Heavy Band In Music Today

Anytime Parkway Drive decide to treat the world to new music is cause for celebration as far as we are concerned, and their latest single is no exception.

Released this morning, June 9, “Vice Grip” reintroduces the world to Parkway Drive’s unique take on hard rock with huge riffs and an even larger hook. It’s the most straightforward rock song the band has ever shared, so much that it feels destined for radio play but it’s undeniably born from the same minds and influences that birthed the group’s heaviest material. Think of it as post-modern hard rock with a metal …

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 …

eminem

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 …
