[Hip-Hop] J. Cole – Truly Yours 2 EP

After dropping off  “Cole Summer” last night, J. Cole serves up another treat with the sequel to February’s Truly Yours EP. Like the previous installment, the six-track EP is composed of previously unreleased material and songs that were left on the cutting room floor. With features and production from 2 Chainz, Young Jeezy, Bas, Jake One, and Canei Finch, this iteration is even better than the last. If this is the material that didn’t make the album, you have to wonder what Cole has in store for us when Born Sinner comes out on June 25th. Grab the free download here.

[NEW] Kendrick Lamar – The Jig Is Up (Dump’n) (Prod. J. Cole & Canei Finch)

Kendrick Lamar has been absolutely killing the rap game. His debut album with Interscope Records, Good Kid m.A.A.d. City, is already being hailed a classic and generation-defining piece of work. The first week numbers came in today and with an impressive 242,122 units sold, Lamar’s critical success has clearly been also met by approval from the masses.

In the past, Kendrick has mentioned that him and fellow rising star, Roc Nation’s J. Cole, have been working on a collaborative project. Cole’s producing and rapping chops have been repeatedly proven, and his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, was easily one of the strongest of 2011. Today, Lamar blesses us with a glimpse into what we can expect from this dynamic and incredibly talented duo.

On “The Jig Is Up,” Kdot comes with his harder flow showing off his lyrical ability, unique voice and versatility. Cole World and NYC-based producer, Canei Finch, create a stadium-worthy, epic backdrop. Although J. Cole doesn’t grace the track on the mic, he does speak briefly showing his praise and support for Kendrick. Stream and download this gem below and make sure to grab GKMC on iTunes!

[Hip-Hop] Kendrick Lamar – Westside, Right On Time (ft. Young Jeezy)

Just as we predicted, the #TDEFamAppreciationWeek onslaught continues with a release from the Black Hippy captain, Kendrick Lamar. In an on-point collaboration choice, Lamar enlists trap-star Young Jeezy, who was recently promoted to Senior VP of A&R at Atlantic Records, to bring some of his street-cred and raspy vocals to the laid back instrumental. With his classic, yet incredibly original, style and flow Kendrick delivers yet another bright example of the power of hip-hop music. The Compton-bred emcee has given us more with just a few songs this summer than most artists have with their entire projects. His debut album, Good Kid mAAd City, which is set for an October 2nd release, has the potential to be an instant classic necessary for music lovers of all genres. Drop the top in your imaginary convertible and turn the stereo up for this taste of the sunny streets of Southern California.
