INTERVIEWSKanye West Cuts Rihanna's 'Diamonds' Remix with 'Fresh Prince' Theme

INTERVIEWSKanye West Cuts Rihanna's 'Diamonds' Remix with 'Fresh Prince' Themeby Chris Martins,
November 16th 2012 6:13 PM
Throw up your diamonds / Photo by Getty ImagesAlso: Brad Pitt, Hurricane Sandy, and shower sexAs it turns out, "Diamonds" is a girl's best friend. Rihanna's latest single, which she recently performed on Saturday Night Live, has sparked a seapunk uprising, inspired a Zola Jesus cover, and helped to fuel her airborne 777 Tour. Not bad for a little old "happy and hippie" song, but why not add one more accomplishment to the list? Kanye West has now put his own spin on "Diamonds" and, no, he didn't use the opportunity to rap revisit "Sierra Leone." Instead, he begins at a soiree: "We in this party and nobody invited me / We going crazy and I always use my best sense / But that don't matter cause I stay on my Fresh Prince." From there, he spirals into My Beautiful Dark Twisted …

Joey Bada$$ f/ Ab-Soul – “Enter The Void” | New Music

Joey Bada$$ f/ Ab-Soul – "Enter The Void" | New Musicby Michell C. Clark,
November 14th 2012
Two of the biggest rising names in the rap game link up, as Pro.Era's Joey Bada$$ and Top Dawg Entertainment's Ab-Soul release an imaginative song called "Enter The Void." Ab-Soul's album Control System, which featured standout tracks such as "Terrorist Threats" and "Pineal Gland," released earlier this year to critical acclaim. Joey gained notoriety largely for his lyrically dense delivery over classic hip-hop beats on his 1999 mixtape, but this song finds him rapping alongside Ab-Soul to a more futuristic instrumental characterized by heavy bass and whispering vocals. Buying into the concept of a 'third eye,' both stars warn listeners to "keep their mouths shut and their chakras open.""Enter The Void" is now available on iTunes.Listen: Joey Bada$$ f/ Ab-Soul – "Enter The Void"

What is Trap? Then and Now – From Southern Rap to EDM (Flosstradamus, Baauer, Gucci Mane)

What is Trap? Then and Now – From Southern Rap to EDM (Flosstradamus, Baauer, Gucci Mane)by Computo,
November 9th 2012
The growing popularity of trap music in North America has been one of the biggest stories in electronic dance music in 2012. Dubspot writer Computo explores trap's DNA…UNDERGR☢UND ANTHEM by FlosstradamusThe summer of 2012 saw the rise of trap music in the North America. With DJs and producers like Flosstradamus, Diplo, The Gaslamp Killer and TNGHT (Hudson Mohawke and Lunice) spreading the sound, and major hip hop artists like Kanye West, 2 Chainz, and Gucci Mane releasing trap-influenced hits like "Mercy" and "Birthday Song," the the stripped-back 808-dominant style has an undeniable surge in popularity. With its short detuned hip hop vocal loops, the classic 808 sub kick creating low-end pressure and short squeals of pitch-shifting synths supplying the melodies, trap has been one of the most-hyped sounds of 2012, but where does …

[Listen] A Preview Of Rihanna’s ‘Unapologetic’ Album

[Listen] A Preview Of Rihanna's 'Unapologetic' Albumby Necole Bitchie,
November 7th 2012
It's just 12 more days before Mary Jane Riri drops her new LP, Unapologetic and already her album snippets have made their way online. Judging from the first listen, she successfully infuses Hip Hop, Pop and Dance on the album and it still manages to sound cohesive.Out of 14 tracks, there are five features that include Eminem, Future, Mikky Ekko, David Guetta and (surprise! surprise!) Chris Brown.  The melody and beat on the Chris Brown track actually sound like a 90′s throwback with Rihanna singing, "Ain't nobody's business, just mine and my baby!"  I can imagine they jumped in the studio and made this track around the time that Rihanna was spotted in various New York City nightspots cuddled up with Chris.The album starts off with "Fresh Off The Runway" which has a beat similar to Nicki Minaj's "HOV Lane". On the track, Rih…

LL Cool J Redeems Himself On “Take It”: Listen

LL Cool J Redeems Himself On "Take It": Listenby Christina Lee,
November 3rd 2012
This summer, LL Cool J announced his return to hip-hop with "Ratchet" — his first new music since 2008′s Exit 13 and, to be honest, not what we expected. Peppered with easy-to-catch references to D'Angelo and Lady Gaga, the rap icon's remorseful screed of gold-diggers ("Can I get some cash? A little money for gas?") wasn't as deserving of the title he's lined up for his forthcoming album: Authentic Hip Hop.But in his new song "Take It," LL Cool J attempts to right his wrongs with lines like, "LL got the remedy, intervention divine / I gave you the gift, listen to me, it's all by design." He's spitting of the pressure that comes with returning to hip-hop — he feels like an underdog now — but, as his rap story segues to a steamy hook-up in the hood, LL makes clear that he doesn't dwell in self-pity for long. Check out …

The Alchemist

The Alchemistby Sam Gould,
October 31st 2012
Beverley Hills producer is having a busy year. Having already dropped a studio album (Russian Roulette) and having crafted the beats for Domo Genesis' No Idols LP, the underground legend has just released another free project for us to feast our ears on. His new project, Yacht Rock is the result of a partnership with eye-wear brand 9FIVE. The two parties have teamed up to create a limited edition frame and a seven-inch vinyl with some choice Alchemist beats, over which artists such as Action Bronson (with whom Alc has another project in the works), Blu and Roc Marciano drop some raps. Split into sides A and B, the 12-minute mix is hazy, luxurious listening and you can download it for free, via the 9FIVE site, just click here.See Video: Page: from Pocket

Kanye West unveils ‘Cruel Winter’ short film trailer [Video]

Kanye West unveils 'Cruel Winter' short film trailer [Video]by Eric Christianso,
November 1st 2012
Details on Kanye West's forthcoming short film Cruel Winterand the associated G.O.O.D. Music album are still murky but he's just released a 54-second trailer for the visual project which should build anticipation for what's to come.The short clip, directed by , features the almost demonic voice of George Bush Snr making his "New World Order" speech, as the world prepared for the Gulf War in '91. Combined with sombre instrumentation and shots of the natural world facing a cold winter, it has a powerful effect.Whilst the Illuminati crazies will rant that this finally proves Kanye is privy to some nonsensical international conspiracy only insane people know about, it mostly just reveals that Cruel Winter (album and film) is likely to be a darker affair than Cruel Summerbut hey, the title could have told you that. Watch the video trailer be…
