Eminem – Good Guy ft. Jessie Reyez [Video]

Eminem has had a busy week. Last Friday, he released an 11-minute, acapella freestyle furiously directed at no one in particular, apparently in support of the battle rap film he produced, Bodied. This Friday, he gets the shit kicked out of him by Jessie Reyez in the new music video for their collaboration, “Good Guy.”

The song is a sequel to “Nice Guy,” another Em and Reyez collaboration from the surprise dropped Kamikaze. Both songs deal, in somewhat confusing terms, with the complicated romantic relationships Eminem finds himself in. In the “Good Guy” video, that’s illustrated by Jessie Reyez clawing her way out of a grave, marching to Eminem’s house, and proceeding to fight him. After some failed attempts at stabbing him, she finds success when she throws Eminem out of a window. Then she strangles him, wraps his body in plastic sheets, and returns him to the grave she started her hero’s journey in. It’s a lot.

In October, Eminem infected the masses with a Slim Shady symbiote in the his new video for “Venom,” the featured track from the movie about the Marvel antihero. It was a track from his latest album, Kamikaze, which he surprise-released in August. The record follows his 2017 effort, Revival.

Ice Cube Returns with New Album ‘Everythangs Corrupt’

Ice Cube is back. The rap icon returns with Everythangs Corrupt, his first studio album in eight years.

From the politically-charged “Arrest the President” to the G-funk banger “That New Funkadelic,” the outspoken N.W.A legend stays true to his gangsta roots on the 16 tracks, which also includes a lone collaboration with Too $hort (“Ain’t Got No Haters”).

“I try to be honest on my records. They do, don’t get me wrong, tend to lean towards west cast hardcore hip-hop, but at the end of the day, I’m trying to just tell my truth as I see it,” Cube told Beats 1. “And nobody’s exempt on my records. You know, I talk about everybody, even myself. I think every pencil needs to be sharpened every now and then, so hopefully my record is a pencil sharpener.”

Everythangs Corrupt marks Cube’s 10th solo album and his first since 2010’s I Am the West. In addition to music, he is gearing up to shoot Last Friday, the long-awaited fourth installment in the Friday franchise.

Stream Gucci Mane’s Album ‘Evil Genius’

Guwop is back in his zone. Nearly one year since his last album, Gucci Mane returns with Evil Genius.

On the follow-up to The Return of East Atlanta Santa, the 1017 boss delivers 18 tracks including the previously-released singles “Wake Up in the Sky” with Bruno Mars and Kodak Black and “Solitaire” featuring Migos and Lil Yachty.

The star-studded set also includes collaborations with Quavo (“BiPolar” and “Lost Y’all Mind”), Kevin Gates (“I’m Not Goin’”), 21 Savage (“Just Like It”), YoungBoy Never Broke Again (“Cold Shoulder”), and Lil Pump, who appears on the bonus track “Kept Back.”

Evil Genius, which was announced last December, marks Gucci’s sole album of 2018. Last year alone, the prolific rapper released three projects—DropTopWop, Mr. Davis, and El Gato: The Human Glacier.

“It’s my only album of the year and I did it on purpose,” Gucci told Beats 1. “I was wanting to take my time and chill. I didn’t want to be in studio with a deadline, like I got to make an album and it got to come out at this time.”

Next up, Gucci is working on the long-awaited Glacier Boyz project, which is due next spring. It will feature contributions from Lil Yachty, Migos, Lil Baby, and HoodRich Pablo Juan.

Stream XXXTentacion’s Posthumous Album ‘Skins’

Six months after his tragic death, the first posthumous album from XXXTentacion has arrived.

Skins, which follows March’s chart-topping ?, contains 10 songs and has a run time of 19 minutes. In addition to the single “BAD!,” the 10 tracks include a lone collaboration with Kanye West, who addresses X’s controversial past on “One Minute.” Prior to his death, the 20-year-old rapper was awaiting trial for a 2016 domestic abuse case involving his pregnant girlfriend.

“So much hate at the top, it’s a lonely place,” raps West, who seemingly sympathizes with X. “The world only know you by your worst mistakes.”

Skins arrives six months after X was shot and killed as he was leaving a motorcycle dealership. A grand jury has indicted four men on first-degree murder and armed robbery charges.

There could be even more music in the vault. X reportedly has a “deep archive” of unreleased material that his estate may license in the future. “X was always recording and making music and being creative,” his lawyer Bob Celestin told The New York Times in July.

Eminem Drops 11-Minute ‘Kick Off’ Freestyle

Shady’s back again.

Inspired by his new battle rap movie Bodied, Eminem unleashes a fiery new freestyle that clocks in over 10 minutes. Shot at his “old stomping grounds” at The Shelter in the basement at Saint Andrew’s Hall in Detroit, Em intros his “Kick Off” freestyle by explaining why he loves battle rap.

“I’ve always looked at battle rap as a competition where the main objective is to destroy, completely fucking obliterate your opponent by saying anything and everything, whatever the fuck you can to get a reaction from the crowd,” said Em. “So nothing’s off limits.”

He then launches into a series of raps about the terrorist bombing outside Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert, Justin Bieber, and his competition.

“Someone’s gonna challenge me, who? / Battle me and win / That’s a fucking fallacy too / You name one motherfucker in this galaxy,” he says before literally spitting on the floor.

The Detroit rapper serves as producer of the Joseph Kahn-directed Bodied, which is now available on YouTube Premium and in select theaters.

The freestyle follows the August release of his surprise album Kamikaze, which became his ninth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

JAY-Z Calls Out Kanye West on Meek Mill’s ‘What’s Free’

JAY-Z is drawing a line in the sand.

The hip-hop icon takes aim at Kanye West on “What’s Free,” a collaboration with Rick Ross and Meek Mill off the latter’s new album Championships.

On the standout cut, which is a take on The Notorious B.I.G.’s “What’s Beef,” Hov calls out the MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporter. “No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and Ye / They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA,” he raps. “I ain’t one of these house ni**as you bought / My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours.”

He goes on to possibly mention Kanye’s spouse, Kim Kardashian, but stops short. “My spo—c’mon, man—my route better, of course.”

JAY-Z and Kanye have had a tumultuous relationship throughout the years. During an April interview with David Letterman’s “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,” JAY spoke about his relationship with Ye. “That’s my brother,” he said. “We’re beyond friends. Really, like literally, my little brother is Kanye, and like your little brother, things happen sometimes.”

In September, Kanye announced that a sequel to Watch the Throne was in the works, but he didn’t specify if JAY would be involved.

Meek has also spoken out against Kanye following his White House meeting with Trump. “I don’t think [Kanye] addressed anything that had to do with what was tough on justice reform. He wasn’t prepared for it, and he shouldn’t have done it,” he told Vulture. “I had phone calls with Kanye for hours. He was trying to get me to go to things like that.”

He also had a conversation with Kim Kardashian, but that too didn’t yield any results. “She knew a lot more information than I thought she would know,” said Meek, adding, “I just couldn’t reason with them.”

New Music: Meek Mill feat. Drake – ‘Going Bad’

Meek Mill and Drake are “Going Bad.” Following their highly-publicized beef, the former rivals put the past behind them and reunite on a highly-anticipated collaboration off Meek’s new album Championships.

Over the hard-hitting Wheezy beat, Drizzy kicks things off, boasting about his track record (“I got more slaps than a Beatle”) and Murakami in his hallway. Meanwhile, Meek shoots his shot with Steve Harvey’s daughter Lori Harvey (“That’s the only thing I want for Christmas”) and references Drake’s diss “Back to Back” (“Me and Drizzy back to back, it’s gettin’ scary”).

The two shared the stage during Drake’s show at Boston’s TD Garden in September and again in Meek’s hometown of Philadelphia.

According to Meek, the reunion was a long time coming. “We actually been in contact, probably like a year before that,” he told Power 106’s “The Cruz Show.” “But we was making the right timing and catching up to make it fully natural and be effective. The message was to send out love and build bridges… It was a competitive thing—we had fun. It built us, made us stronger.”

Prior to their storied rap battle, which produced songs like “Back to Back” and “Wanna Know,” the two collaborated on tracks including “R.I.C.O.” and “Amen.”

In addition to Drake, Meek’s new album Championships boasts appearances from JAY-Z, Rick Ross, Cardi B, Ella Mai, Future, Young Thug, 21 Savage, and Kodak Black.
