Off of RZA’s upcoming movie soundtrack, “The Man with the iron Fists,” Kanye returns to his storytelling roots and a more soulful production I miss this Kanye, no autotune, no futuristic samples. Let’s hope his next album follows this formula.
Kanye West – White Dress
If there ever was a song that sounded like Kings of Leon’s without vocals, this is it. Released a month ago, this is pure music bliss, especially when the drums come in. Download it for free from their website,
Broke For Free – The Gold Lining
I just can’t get enough of the G-Unit general himself going off over these boom bap soulful beats. He brings along West Coast legend Too Short along for the ride. I must admit I wasn’t a fan of him singing the chorus, but it has grown on me. Street King Immortal coming soon.
50 Cent ft. Too Short – First Date
So much new music coming out, I will get some free time this weekend to update. Just to clue you in, I am still listening to the Big Sean mixtape, the Slaughterhouse album and mixtape, DJ Drama’s album, Miguel’s album, and even T-Pain’s new release. Anyway here comes a single that was tucked away for a while but finally has seen the light of day. Joe Budden comes through over a “Young Money” sounding beat along with Wayne and Tank. Sounds good to me until Wayne comes on.

J.Cole doing what he does best right here, great lyrics over a Major Lazer beat who is responsible for Alex Clare’s hit “Too Close,” (that catchy song from the Windows Commercial), and he ends on a nice sample from Mr. Shakur. Major Lazer is made up of Diplo and Switch who previously met while working M.I.A.
