September 4, 2009

In the video below, KiD CuDi chops it up with the Hip Hop Chronicle. The interview is pretty insightful, seeing that CuDi talks about his upcoming, debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Daysome of the tracks on the project and more.

In this interview with The Hip Hop Chronicle UK, Kid Cudi talks about his brand new album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, he speaks on specific tracks on the album including Heart of a Lion (Kid Cudi Theme Music) and My World.

Cudi also breaks down why he had 5 acts on his scene list and what the titles mean.

He also reveals that a lot of people who have under-estimated him in the past have apologized to him.


Jay-Z x Kid Cudi – “Already Home”

September 3, 2009

Though he is just featured on the hook, Kid Cudi makes his appearance on Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 an unforgettable one. Personally, I love the vibe of this track and I think that both, Jay and Cudi, did their thing. Link below.

How many leaks was that? Ha, ridiculous. Like I said, you can listen to the album via MTV or just support it on September 11th, which I advise.


Video: Ross Applauds Eminem on “Forever” Verse

September 3, 2009

Though Rick Ross applauds Eminem for his verse on Forever with Drake, Kanye and Lil Wayne, Ross still wants to battle Em. Check out the clip below

When Rick Ross thinks about Eminem making a Mariah Carey dis record instead of responding to his jabs toward Slim Shady, the Miami Bawse just cracks up laughing. “You know what my thoughts are, man. We just laugh at it,” Ross told us recently in New Mexico.

“He’s smart,” Ross said about Eminem not addressing him and avoiding a rhyme battle. “That’s what I’m waiting for. That’ll be a gift — a great Christmas present for me. But y’all know what I think. I think everybody knows. It’s all ‘hood, man. Shout-out to Mariah Carey, she needs to reach out to me. We could eradicate some things.”

The vibe is not 100 percent antagonistic, however, when it comes to Ross’ thoughts on Marshall Mathers — he actually has some praise for Em’s latest verse.

“On a better note, I wanna shout out Eminem. I heard a record he did with Lil Wayne, Drake and Kanye West. Eminem, you’re smart. I understand … we all know what you doing now. You’re moving on to better things. Like I said, he might wanna do a record with me. We here. Triple Cs.”

Ross, the Carol City Cartel, Masspike Miles and the rest of his musical family are putting out their mixtape Maybach Music Part III: White Sand real soon. The title signifies that they started in the streets and are now indulging in the finer things in life. “We still on that hustle,” Ross said. “I’m hungry like a new artist. It’s a double disc of all new music as well as a DVD. It’s taking the street mixtapes to the next level.”

Triple Cs are filming the video for their first single, “Go,” with the Birdman featured in the production. The album Custom Cars and Cycles is due to drop this fall.

Just for the record, Eminem is top ever. Ross would get smashed to pieces, truthfully.

Four Leaked Tracks from Jay-Z’s “Blueprint 3”

September 1, 2009

Yes, you read the title correctly. Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 is getting more and more leaked by the moment. Honestly, it does not sway my decision to go out and buy the album (and I hope it doesn’t sway yours either), but it does bring a bittersweet feeling from seeing all of the songs being leaked. I figured you’d get it one way or another, so here you go, but act fast because they will be gone sooner than later. Enjoy.

Jay-Z – “Thank You”

Jay-Z x Kanye West – “Hate”

Jay-Z x J. Cole – “A Star is Born”

Jay-Z x Young Jeezy – “As Real as it Gets”
