Kendrick Lamar is officially the most popular kid on the block. Everywhere you turn, it seems like somebody is recruiting K. Dot for a spot on their newest single or remix. With that being said, it’s no surprise that Young Jeezy turned to the “Hottest MC In The Game” to replace 2 Chainz on the remix for his hot new single. What may surprise you is what other cohorts were invited to the party. Joining Kendrick on the remix are YG and Chris Brown. While Kendrick definitely bodies the beat, Chris Brown does nothing more than rattle a few cages, taking some shots at Drake and Frank Ocean. Regardless, you should definitely expect to hear this version of the track everywhere over the next few months, especially with summer right around the corner.
Just in time for Spring Break mode, the duo Kidz in the Hall drop a new dope track titled “Tonight”. The cool but party loving Chicago emcees Naledge and Double-O team up with Yonas Michael for to deliver a smooth, party-starting single. Spitting over a synth heavy, futuristic, and flashing drums beat produced by Double-O. The two deliver and bring this colorful track to life as they speak about living out the night like it is their last. Be sure to check out the free track below, which is the first single from their upcoming Wishful Drinking EP, dropping 4/2.
Remember when New York’s Azealia Banks pretty much scared the hell out of us on her most recent track, “Yung Rapunxel”? Well, don’t worry about losing your sh*t over her new video for “No Problems”. The visuals for the hard-hitting, electronic-infused track are mostly fun in the sun — the fun being had specifically in Miami during the Ultra Music Festival alongside Diplo and Steve Aoki. No big deal. Watch it below!
If you’re an avid Music Ninja reader (and we hope you are!), you might remember that massive FREE! guestmix that Vicetone made exclusively for us back in February. You might also remember our post on their electric hit “Heartbeat” exactly one month ago. The Netherlands-based duo keep churning out the tunes, this time teaming up with singer Jonny Rose on “Stars”, a new hard-hitting, firecracker of a track. It’s not quite summer yet, but it’s never too soon to start putting together those BBQ/beach playlists. Start with this one.
For all the US-based Jessie Ware fans, let us rejoice! The UK electro-soul songstress will finally release her excellent debut, Devotion, for us on April 16th (it dropped months ago almost everywhere else). We’ve had to anxiously wait like impatient children for this, but at least the stateside version includes two new tracks. We’ve heard one of them, the uptempo house track “Imagine It Was Us”, and here’s the second: a remix of “Wildest Moments” featuring none other than A$AP Rocky. The rework features some rather low key verses from the emcee, which is fine with us, seeing as the original was near-perfect on its own. Listen in via the video or mp3 stream.
