Looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer for the I’ma Boss remix (which includes Jay-Z, Diddy and Swizz Beatz), as Meek revealed to VIBE that he wants to see if the recently released King wants in. Hopefully he does (and comes correct) as it would be a great re-introduction to the game.
While we all pretty much knew the deal from the jump, Pusha finally confirms that he’s signed a solo deal with Def Jam Recordings. And while we still have no info on the yet-to-be-titled debut, Fear Of God 2: Let Us Pray EP is still slated for a September 27th release.
Solidifying my first solo venture, G.O.O.D Music/DefJam is my home. That machine with my creativity is gonna make for satisfied hip hop fan.
On November 1st, Torae will be unleashing his latest offering w/ a phenomenal production cast consisting of Khrysis, Marco Polo, !llmind, 9th Wonder, Pete Rock, Large Professor, Diamond D, Eric G, DJ Premier, Nottz and more.
Remember this game* some of y’all used to play way back when? Well, that has nothing to do with the latest set of visuals from the mysterious Black Opera crew. But if you like what you hear (and I have a feeling you will), be sure to cop their Overture project on iTunes.
* Marrying Keira Knightley. Whipping a Gunmetal-Grey Maserati w/ 3 kids in Cali. All while running 2dbz. Nice!
Nearly a year ago, Otherside, a fan favorite off of the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ VS EP, was remixed and released as part of their VS Redux project. During that span, and spurred on by a powerful fan-base who have long embraced Otherside (the song has over one-million plays one YouTube), Macklemore and Lewis felt compelled to deliver a worthy visual to accompany the already stirring narrative. Along with Macklemore and Lewis, the visual was shot in multiple locations by director and long time collaborator Jason Koenig (My Oh My). The song, remixed and now featuring Christopher Mansfield (Fences) on the chorus, chronicles Macklemore’s personal struggles with drug abuse and its glorification within the hip hop music he loves.
As a companion to the music video, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis released a special live version of the remix on iTunes.
Ne-Yo is back in his comfort zone on this quickstrike video clip (having Mavado as a guest on the track and asses shaking in the video also helps too), so we’ll be using his stage name for this one. It’s only a matter of time before he’s back to his habitually line-stepping mannerisms, however.
