[NEW] Eminem – Symphony In H

Symphony In H

Some week it’s been for hip-hop huh? On Sunday Jay-Z announced a partnership with Samsung to release his next studio effort Magna Carta Holy Grail, today we received new albums from the likes of Kanye West, J. Cole, Mac Miller, and Statik Selekah, and now Eminem drops this bomb on us out of nowhere. Em had hinted at some some new music recently, but we weren’t expecting anything from him out of the blue. Although the track is only 90 seconds in length, it serves as a nice appetizer for what we hope will shape up to be a spectacular seventh studio album. Check out “Symphony In H” above, and look out for DJ Tony Touch‘s new mixtape Piecemaker 3: The Return Of The 50 MCs dropping July 9th, which will feature this song along with new cuts from artists like Raekwon, Action Bronson, Black Thought and more.

[NEW] M.I.A. – Bring The Noize


M.I.A. returns to the scene the only way she knows how, with a brash, blaring in-your-face new single, “Bring The Noize.” Paying tribute to the Public Enemy classic, Maya told Zane Lowe of BBC Radio 1 that the single is “coming out at a time where I think in America it’s kinda cool to hear something like this,” likely referencing the recent debacles involving the NSA and Edward Snowden. There’s no word on when M.I.A.’s fourth studio album, Matangi, will finally come out, but it’s pretty clear that she’s getting frustrated with the entire process right now, “It’s just one of those things where I’ve given up at this point. I was literally going to start putting out records from my bedroom. This was my last stab at it– I’m going to hand it in and wait for it to go out the way albums go out. If I didn’t get it out right now, I would’ve definitely exploded.” She also went on to mention that the album had been rejected for being “too positive,” whatever that means. Either way, we hope we get a chance to hear the album in its final form, through whichever delivery method she finally settles on.

[Hip-Hop] Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Stay At Home Dad

Macklemore X Ryan Lewis
Stay At Home Dad

In honor of Father’s Day, Macklemore decided to revive this hilarious ode to all the “Stay At Home Dads” out there. Conceived back in 2010, the track is meant to make light of certain gender roles and stigma surrounding dads who choose to take care of the kids and handle the chores around the house while the wife is out making all the bread. The song gives us a glimpse of what life for Mack might’ve been like if he never made it big. Thankfully for us though, everything worked out for him, meaning he won’t have to be concerned about how many bagels to toast for his wife in the morning. Check out the goofy track above, and make sure to grab a free download for yourself as well.

[NEW] Kanye West – I Am A God (Prod. Daft Punk)

Kanye West
I Am A God

As I’m sure you already know by now, Kanye West’s Yeezus has experienced a case of the leaks. Depending on how you look at it, that’s either a triumph for the internet or a failure for Ye. Yeezy’s been heralded as one of the most paranoid, tight-lipped artists’ out there, taking every measure to prevent his album from leaking, even going so far as to ensure that there would be no pre-order streams to get hacked into. Despite all his efforts though, the album wasn’t able to release on his own terms. Much mystery still remains around the album, with an official tracklist yet to be revealed. While we won’t be sharing the leak with you, I’m sure you can do some digging to easily find a copy on your own. Instead, we’re providing you with a chance to hear one of the album’s most talked about tracks, “I Am A God” which according to sources was produced by Daft Punk–one of the few artists to cause this much hysteria around the release of their album earlier this year. Check out the supposed final tracklist–including credits–below, and make sure to grab a copy of Yeezus when it officially drops on June 18th.  Continue reading

[Hip-Hop] Pusha T – Who I Am (Feat. 2 Chainz & Big Sean) (Prod. Kanye West & Million $ Mano)

Who I Am (Feat. 2 Chainz & Big Sean)

Pusha T gave Funkmaster Flex the go-ahead today to premiere the latest single from his upcoming album, My Name Is My Name. Featuring G.O.O.D. Music cohorts Big Sean and 2 Chainz, “Who I Am” is yet another understated banger. Just like “Numbers On The Board,” this one takes a more minimalistic approach, one that requires a a quality pair of headphones to truly appreciate. You have Kanye West and Million $ Mano to blame thank for that. While I’m a bit torn on this one, given the cast involved I’m sure it’ll grow on me over time. Stream the record above, and be on the lookout for My Name Is My Name, due out on July 16th.

[Hip-Hop] J. Cole – New York Times (Feat. 50 Cent & Bas)

New York Times (Feat. 50 Cent & Bas)

Although Born Sinner has already leaked, J. Cole has decided to share a bonus cut with us which will be featured on his Truly Yours 3 EP, set to be packaged as an additional disc with the deluxe edition of the album. With 50 Cent holding down the chorus, and fellow Dreamvillain Bas chipping in with a verse of his own, Cole and crew cover all facets of life as a New Yorker. All in all, it’s one of the better tracks we’ve heard from Cole over the last few weeks, and it makes you wonder why it never made the final cut for the album. It also might’ve been cool to get a verse from 50 squeezed in there as well. We honestly haven’t heard him prominently featured on anyone’s material in quite awhile.

If you haven’t heard J. Cole’s new album yet, you can check out a full stream after the jump. Just make sure to have your pre-orders ready when Born Sinner drops on June 18th. Continue reading

The Trap Dojo #42 [MP3 Playlist]


First off we got two unreleased tracks form KEYS N KRATES, that were both ripped from their Future Stars Mix for Hard Summer. Next up is arguably  the best remix of 2013, and we can thank the man from down under, Flume. He remixes Disclosure’s track with Eliza Doolittle, and nails it on every level. Any Trap related tune with A-Trak on it is going to be massive, and his remix of Kavinsky’s track “Odd Call” is on point. LOUDPVCK also fall into the the category of nailing everything, and this fly remix of Jackal’s track “Shakedown” doesn’t disappoint. Next is a track that was overlooked by pretty much every blog, and it’s a remix from Swick and Lewis CanCut of Sig Pattni’s track “Mr Alpha”. There are two DJ Green Lantern tracks being featured today, and first off is a fire remix of Iggy Azaela‘s track “Bounce”, the other is titled “Splitting Atoms”. Enjoy the rest on your own, and my apologies for lagging with getting this post up. Cheers.
