NEW EMINEM: Slaughterhouse And Yelawolf Join Slim On “Psychopath Killer”

Eminem dropped a new track yesterday from his upcoming release Shady XV, featuring Slaughterhouse and Alabama’s own Yelawolf.

Mr. Mathers has been making headlines seemingly every day for the past few weeks, whether for jabs at Lana Del Rey or Iggy Azalea. But for as long as he keeps coming out with fire tracks, the primary task at hand should be giving them a listen regardless of your stance on his controversial lyricism.

Shady XV is set to come out this Monday, November 24, just one year following his return to the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 …

At long last, it’s finally here. After two years of label changes, Twitter feuds, and hip-hop drama, Harlem rapper Azealia Banks has dropped her debut LP, Broke With Expensive Taste. The surprise release sees Azealia Banks on top of her game and, surprisingly, it was well worth the wait.

Opener “Idle Delilah” starts things off right. The album is filled with all sorts of sly, infectious beats that see Banks rapping over them with ease while phone beeps, salsa twists, and guests spots are sprinkled throughout. Previously heard hits “212,” “Heavy Metal Reflective,” and “Yung

STREAM: Fredo Santana – “Riot” Feat. Childish Gambino

Chicago rapper and label-owner, Fredo Santana, known by some as the elder cousin of rapper Chief Keef, has recently released an interesting track featuring Childish Gambino.

Called “Riot,” the song shows Santana’s typical style, plus a heavy contribution by Childish Gambino, who has put acting on the back burner to develop and legitimize his hip-hop image. It’s strange to hear Gambino on trap tracks, but almost fitting after hearing his recent STN MTN mixtape in which he presents himself as an Atlanta rap superstar.

Stream “Riot” below the jump to hear the track for yourself.…

Hoodie Allen Streams “All About It”

Just three days ago, rapper Hoodie Allen released his debut album, People Keep Talking. Truly a marketing whiz, Hoodie has expertly promoted his independent record and the results have been impressive to say the least. In fact, he’s released either a fancy music video or a high-quality audio stream for the majority of the tracks off of People Keep Talking.

Hoodie’s latest release, “All About It,” is one of my personal favorites off of his exceptional new album. The song initially features Ed Sheeran rapping, and Hoodie singing the hook- an interesting twist and totally worth a listen. …

Run The Jewels Are Remaking ‘RTJ2′ Using Nothing But Cat Noises

The internet can do magical things. When Run The Jewels‘ El-P said he would remake the rap duo’s newest album using only cat sounds if someone bought a deluxe edition (costing $40,000), he never thought the goal would be met. Low and behold, it was.

The RTJ2 remake, titled Meow The Jewels, brought in all $40,000 thanks to a fan-created Kickstarter. When El-P found out it existed, he pledged all the money earned would be given to charity should it reach its goal.
