[WATCH] Royce 5’9”, T.I and CyHi Tha Prynce Snap On Black Savage

Royce 5’9” has reinvented himself once again and straight snapped with his new video for Black Savage featuring Sy Ari Da Kid, White Gold, CyHi The Prynce & T.I. Beginning the video off with a quote from James Baldwin, Royce’s agenda is clear from the gate. “You have to decide who you are and force the world to deal with you, not with it’s idea of you.”

Spitting straight bars that teach, Royce’s level of lyricism steps up another notch as he continues to propel with each project. 

Vulgar like Akinyele, focus like Dr. Sebi
We did it your way but now the culture is boppin’ to our Sinatra medley/
I’m limitless energy, they gimmicks and imagery
Kendrick, Cole and the Kennedys, lyrical Holy Trinity
General of the city, they into promoting silly beef

Straight out of black gangsta flick, the men appear in a glamorous private party adorned with a African choir. The men bring soul and bars back to hip hop on the melodic production. Sy Ari Da Kid kills the chorus while CyHi The Prince brings the delivery he’s known for.

‘Huh, they tryna take the soul out of soul
Niggas say I sold out, I never sold out a show’

And T.I. reaches back into his Troubleman persona to boast of his black greatness. Check out the video below!

[WATCH] Thotbox (Remix) Hitmaka Feat Young M.A., Chinese Kitty, DreamDoll, Dreezy + Mulatto

Hitmaka just released the video for ‘Thotbox’ (remix) featuring Young M.A., Chinese Kitty, DreamDoll, Dreezy and Mulatto.

Formerly known as Yungberg, Hitmaka has had one heck of year producing hit after hit proving he’s a producer with a force to be reckoned. Hitmaka’s catalog as a producer has earned over 28 million digital sales and 5 billion streams, stemming from credits with artists like French Montana (“No Stylist” featuring Drake), Chris Brown (“Party” featuring Usher and Gucci Mane), Big Sean (“Bounce Back”), and 2 Chainz (“Rule the World” featuring Ariana Grande). Now back with the remix to his song ‘Thotbox’, he brought the ladies in rap together for an anthem-type track.

Mulatto from Jermane Dupri’s show The Rap Game proves she’s all grown up with her seductive bars and clothing. Young M.A, brings her Brooklyn style and the flow we’ve come to love. Chinese Kitty breaks out her sex kitten flow with straight bars and confidence that makes her a fan favorite. Dreezy can go to bar for bar with the most successful rapper to date and DreamDoll switches up the flow and cadence to the piano keys leaving the song.
Set to be a classic due to the surefire lineup of dope females it’s safe to say that female camaraderie is back on the rise.
Check out the video below.

Who remember’s this classic ladies anthems. Let’s give it up for the ladiesssss!

Travis Scott Drops Three Different Artworks For His New Single “Highest in the Room”

As if he didn’t already have the music world excited with the announcement of his second annual ASTROWORLD Festival a few days ago, Travis Scott is now gearing up for the release of new music in the form of a single titled “Highest in the Room.”



Dropping this Friday (October 4), Travis’ latest musical offering also comes accompanied by three different artwork designs (seen above). The main one seems to be the burning ladder extending into the clouds — it’s a dope work of art in itself that alludes to the song’s title perfectly without having to say much. The alternate cover goes for a more direct approach, infusing the words “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM” in a typeface that matches the Basquiat-esque figure also present in the artwork. The third could be a whole other song altogether, especially because a song titled “SHE FILLS MY MIND UP WITH IDEAS” with an alien head on the cover looks like a very Cactus Jack sorta move. Either way, we’re definitely excited to see what the rap superstar has to offer to cap off the workweek with.

Look out for “Highest in the Room” by Travis Scott to arrive this Friday (October 4). No word yet on if this is for a new album, but we’ll keep you updated with the latest.

LISTEN: DJ Shadow Unveils Upcoming Double LP ‘Our Pathetic Age’ With First Single “Rosie”

One of the best mixmasters out of the ’90s underground Hip-Hop scene is making his return this year, as DJ Shadow just announced he’ll be dropping a double album filled with collaborations from a handful of rap all-stars.



The lineup for Our Pathetic Age is hefty to say the least, bringing some of today’s new kids on the block together with those we consider to be legends to the game. The features go from Nas, De La Soul, Run the Jewels, Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon to rising MCs like Wiki, Dave East and See You Yesterday rapper-turned-actor Stro. The album will also include a few genre switch-ups as well, like Interpol’s Paul Banks and Future Islands frontman Samuel T. Herring — whether or not he’ll be channeling ‘Hemlock Ernst’ is to be determined. From the sound of “Rosie,” the double LP’s beat-thumping lead single, Shadow will definitely be borrowing from all across the music spectrum. The album will be released through Mass Appeal Records, similar to his 2017 EP, The Mountain Has Fallen.

Listen to “Rosie” off DJ Shadow’s upcoming album Our Pathetic Age below, and make sure to look out for the full project to drop on November 15.

Skyzoo and Pete Rock Set to Release ‘Retropolitan’ Album

The combination of Skyzoo and Pete Rock will align for the new album Retropolitan. The effort is set to be produced by Pete Rock in its entirety and will be available to fans on September 20.

The new album will bring in Styles P, Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine, Westside Gunn, Elzhi and Raheem Devaughn.

“The idea for Retropolitan came from a feeling of necessity. The album is both a love letter and a wakeup call to the city of New York.  In an age where hype dominates reality, FOMO supersedes integrity and gentrification has supplanted tradition, this album is screaming for NYC to wake TF up—even as Pete & myself thank the city for all it’s done for us at the same time,” Skyzoo said about the announcement. “Wake up from accepting your culture being stripped away from you.  Wake up from believing that the people who aren’t cut from the cloth you created know your fabric better than you.  Wake up from denying the change that’s taken place within you, told to be for your betterment, when it’s solely for theirs; and at your expense and detriment.  Wake up from ignoring the identity you once had, the community you once built, the strength you once manifested, all to take on that of one you assumed would expand your reach, when all it’s doing is spreading you comically thin.”

“Dear New York, all five boroughs of you, thank you for all you’ve done.  You’re the greatest.  Now sit back, listen and wake TF up”

The first track was premiered on Billboard and titled “It’s All Good.”

Kid Cudi Preps For a New Album & Netflix Animated Series Both Named ‘Entergalactic’

The acting bug has a firm grip on Kid Cudi, and it doesn’t seem like it’ll be going away anytime soon. Not only has the Cleveland-bred rap star announced that a new album is on the way, he’s also already given the project a name and confirmed that a companion TV show in partnership with Netflix will also be part of the LP rollout.



Entergalactic is the title for both the upcoming album and the show, which is being described as an “adult animated series.” The latter will see Cudi working alongside Kenya Barris (Black-ish), who will serve as one of the series’ executive producers. Also in the EP role will be Ian Edelman, who worked with Cudi on HBO’s cult classic How to Make It in America, and the Demon Slayin’ MC himself will write, executive produce and of course star as the main character.

As The Hollywood Reporter describes it, Entergalactic will showcase music from the new album of the same name, and the plot focuses on a young man (more than likely played by Kid Cudi) on his journey to discover love. This will be the third acting role so far on Mr. Mescudi’s plate, following the Bill & Ted: Face the Music “threequel” that was announced last month and a return to HBO for a Luca Guadagnino-led series titled We Are Who We Are. Let’s go, future EGOT!

Entergalactic‘, the new album and Netflix series by Kid Cudi, are both expected to debut in 2020. Oh, and in case you were wondering:

Listen: Lil Nas X Aims For Sophomore Success With New Single “Panini”

Lil Nas X is gearing up to drop his debut LP 7 at midnight, but for now he’s preempting the highly-anticipated release with a new single titled “Panini.”


View this post on Instagram

WHO READY FOR TONIGHT??? 🌏🌍🤩

A post shared by Lil Nas X (@lilnasx) on


Premiered earlier today on Apple Music via Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1, the “Old Town Road” follow-up switches things up from the urban country sound Lil Nas X has been coasting at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with to a more on-trend emo trap vibe. “Panini” actually interpolates a sample of “In Bloom” by Nirvana, which doubles down on the alternative mood of the song and even gives Kurt Cobain some postmortem writing creds as well. For those that feel like X is abandoning his country steez, it actually looks like he’ll be experimenting with a range of sounds heard on Top 40 radio based off the rock-tinged Travis Barker collab “F9mily (You & Me)” previewed in his IG post above. The new single is produced by Take A Daytrip, and sees the viral multi-genre sensation referencing the classic Cartoon Network series Chowder and the possessive relationship that “pink cabbit” Panini has over the titular character.

Listen to “Panini” by Lil Nas X below, and keep a lookout for the debut of his 7 EP at midnight (June 21) via Columbia Records. Let us know if you’re feeling the track by sounding off on Facebook and Twitter!

Tyler, The Creator Lands His First Number 1 Album With ‘IGOR’

According to reporting from The New York Times IGOR, Tyler the Creator’s latest album, topped DJ Khaled’s Father of Asahd LP for the coveted no. 1 spot in this week’s Billboard 200 albums chart. Surprisingly or not, this is Tyler the Creator’s first no. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart and his fifth album overall. IGOR had 165,000 equivalent album units to Khaled’s 136,000. Khaled actually edged out Tyler in streaming numbers (123.2 million versus 122.9), but Tyler made up for it in the number of copies sold (74,000 to 34,000).

Both albums’ physical numbers were helped by merchandise bundles Tyler sold the full album alongside t-shirts, stickers, and political signage, while Khaled bundled his with an energy drink.

The rapper himself also achieves a historical accomplishment as the first solo rapper to debut at No. 1 with a self-produced and self-arranged record.

Responding in a pair of tweets, “honestly didnt think people would enjoy this album based on alot of thing, so again, thank you, i mean it. alot alot of effort put into this. not that that should dictate if people like it or not but im happy all that time and attention paid off.”

Other notable albums to appear on the chart were the National’s new album I Am Easy To Find debuted this week at #5, right behind Billie Eilish’s WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and Khalid’s Free Spirit.

Check out the video below of Tyler receiving the news of his first number one album:
