listen: three different drunk in love remixes (the weeknd, diplo, t.i.)

kanye west kicked off this weekend with a new verse tacked on to jay and bey’s “drunk in love.” the official remix and all. by the time the weekend was over, we had three new high profile remixes. let’s recap:

• the weeknd – abel released it in honor of his 24th birthday.

• diplo – get to wobblin’

• t.i. / DJ mlk (trap remix)

so yeah, enjoy.


watch: travis scott – upper echelon [feat. 2 chainz and t.i.]

i fuckin’ love this song. the production is crazy awesome. in the video, travis scott takes a note out of the kanye videoisms and puts together a 7 minute short film, damn near. 2 minutes of him walking through a forest of various imagery, which is VERY similar to the style and pacing of 2 chainz’ “birthday song” video. both t.i. and 2 chainz look pretty out of place in this video, i’ll say. but nice touch on tip to wear the houston hat.


watch: t.i. – hello [feat. cee-lo green]

i’ll be honest – outside of a few singles, i haven’t even listened to trouble man. any cee-lo collab is usually good by me, though. “hello” has a pretty nice music video to go alongside the track too, with t.i. finding himself in the desert for a fairly cinematic narrative.


watch: robin thicke – blurred lines [feat. pharrell and t.i., live on the voice]

robin thicke brought his flashy, star-studded single to the national stage of the voice to get everyone dancing, while they bounced around on stage with gold microphones and tuxedos, being cool and shit.

thicke’s album, blurred lines, is out this summer.


mixtape: t.i. & grand hustle – g.d.o.d.

t.i. and his label have put together a nice roster of their own, with b.o.b., trae the truth, travis scott, iggy azalea and more. now here’s their showcase of talents in their first posse mixtape, “get dough or die.”

tracklisting can be seen here and you can download below.


watch: t.i. – memories back then [feat. kendrick lamar and b.o.b.]

the once trouble man b-side has now found its new home on t.i.’s label’s hustle gang EP – now we have an official video for the affair, bringing that ‘full blown single’ affliction around full circle.

no release date yet, but it’ll be out this summer.


news: travis scott introduced as new member of hustle gang

in some weird news, travis scott announced that he’ll be releasing his album through grand hustle. and also g.o.o.d. music. that’s a whole lotta backing for someone who hasn’t released much music. so needless to say, this album better be pretty excellent.

and for the record:

XX + g.o.o.d + hustle FUCK whatever ur readin


listen: travis scott – upper echelon [feat. t.i. and 2 chainz]

after a hearty performance of this song with t.i. at the woodie awards during sxsw, i was eager to hear the recorded version, and the owl pharaoh didn’t disappoint. produced by scott himself comes this

trap-ready track, with a roundabout verse from 2 chainz as well.

the album is still allegedly dropping in may, but we’ll see.
