what the fuck
don’t watch when your boss is around or he’ll think you’re creepy
the NBA tip-off went off without a hitch last night. cleveland embraced king james back into their lives and bball team on opening night. granted, bronny couldn’t shake the jitters and put up a pretty shit stat line, but hopefully that’s outta the way and cleveland will show some spark that we know they’re capable of.
what was this about again? oh yeah there was a concert outside and kendrick lamar performed “i.” and hey kdot, GET A FADE HOMIE.
that opening riff reminds you of that one stone temple pilots riff, but outside of that – it’s classic foo. the band keeps the singles from sonic highways coming, and the album will be available to us in full in about ten days, so sit tight.
the pairing of young thug and rich homie quan gave us one of the trap’s best ideas and collaborations in a long time. thankfully, there’s a part II to the mixtape coming as well, but before that – check out their video for “flava.”
is this gonna be lupe fiasco’s best project since the cool? with the three latest drops from the project being consistent – i’m aiming towards yes.
banks has followed up t-pain’s excellent tiny desk set with one of her own (unrelated, but it’s within a 24 hour period, so deal with the comparison).
in honor of halloween, RL grime has dropped off a nice hour-long mix to curate whatever house party you’re throwing or attending. if not either of those, plug in the aux cord en route out.
the other night, nas stopped in on a run the jewels listening party put on by mass appeal to premiere a snippet of a new track, “the season,” laced with the finesse of j dilla’s “gobstopper.” here’s the full audio, available for download, easily becoming one of the month’s best tracks by far.
so the soundtrack for drive is getting re-done, and the 1975 have been commissioned by zane lowe to create a track specifically for the new edition. here’s their contribution, a brand new track, “medicine.”
the most unsung rapper from TDE gets back into our rotation with a hell of a track, featuring none other than his boss. this is one of those uplifting “get the fuck off me” type tracks, so here you go.
here’s your curveball for the day: t-pain’s always been talented, but he used auto-tune as a sound device. seems like fairly common knowledge right? well, he strips down all effects and performs a trio of tracks for NPR’s tiny desk concert series.
MTV premiered the new video from empires, who just released their new LP, orphan. big things on the horizon for this band, it seems, who’ve got the arctic monkeys/black keys crowd in their palms if they want em.
the d-block is represented in full on this tough ass new record from the C5 sessions. jadakiss sounds more jadakiss than ever, by the way. weezy pushed back his C5 release to 12/9 from yesterday, which we knew would happen. there’s a PSA below the jump explaining the situation, but it comes down to: there’s too many songs. there’s gonna be two parts to C5.
future dropped off his new tape last night at 10:28 (on 10/28, haw haw) to follow up his honest LP from earlier this year. the entirety of this mixtape is produced by metro boomin’ and is available in all its free glory. download and listen below.
