Indy-Danish duo, Quadron (Coco O & Robin Hannibal) are planning the release of their second studio album “Avalanche” out June 4th. The album only has one guest appearance, which we have here with the Kendrick Lamar-featured “Better Off.”
You might remember vocalist Coco O from Tyler, the Creator’s “Treehome95” along with Music from Baz Luhrmann’s Film, The Great Gatsby earlier this month, as you get a taste of what Quadron can do on their own. This isn’t the first time Quadron and Kendrick Lamar have crossed paths, as the duo were also members of Boom Clap Bachelors, which K. Dot used material from his “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” from their song, “Tiden Flyver.”
You can enjoy the track above and pre-order the album on iTunes now.

Over two months have passed since we last heard a solo offering from Earl Sweatshirt, but that gap has now been broken with his next release. The Odd Future member’s latest single comes in the form of “Guild,” which includes a guest contribution from Most Dope general, Mac Miller. The track has been featured in live performances for quite some time, but only now is the collaboration being heard in its entirety. Although a date is still yet to be confirmed, you can expect the song to appear on Earl’s forthcoming album Doris.

In 1999, Erick and Parrish Making Dollars were going “Out of Business” (literally and figuratively) with their last album before the duo’s second breakup. One of our most played tracks from the project was the Symphony 2000 cut that featured battle rapper Lady Luck, Tical and Reggie. Themed from classic horror films, our favorite part was Lady Luck reenacting the promo scene from “Carrie” where a bucket of blood landed on her all white dress and she continued to rap like it was nothing.

There’s no denying that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had one of the most successful 12 months in 2012. With roles in The Dark Knight Rises, Premium Rush, Looper and Lincoln under his belt, it’s now time for the actor to take upon a position in the director’s hot seat.
Not to mention Levitt undertaking the leading role in the movie, his next venture Don Jon focusses around a particular man’s priorities in life, involving his body, pad, ride, family, church, boys, girls, porn and simply nothing else. This is until he meets a rather special woman (played by Scarlett Johansson) who changes his entire perpective on life as a whole, allowing him to learn more and realize what else is important.
Expect the motion picture to hit theaters on October 18th.

J. Cole stopped by FuseTV to discuss his upcoming album “Born Sinner” which he finally turned in to the labels for final submission. He recently pushed the album up to June 18th feeling confident in his body of work to challenge Kanye’s new album “Yeezus”. Esteban of Fuse went on to say Kanye West fans, normally tend to be J. Cole fans, which Cole himself admitted to being a die-hard Yeezy fan. He went on to say this isn’t like the Kanye-50 since they both released major albums at the same time, but stated he’s more an LeBron James-esque artist coming into the game to challenge an established Kobe Bryant champion, in Kanye West.

The NBA Playoffs will turn up tonight as game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat & Indiana will get underway. The series kicks off down in Miami and is expected to be a very even, highly competitive matchup. Miami is coming off a series win against the depleted Chicago Bulls, while the Pacers were able to knock off the New York Knicks in impressive fashion.
The thing that you can undoubtedly expect this series is very physical games that will be close and go down to the wire. Will LeBron be able to carry the Heat past Indy with a less than stellar D Wade or will the Pacers be able to shock the world. Tune in tonight at 8:30 EST on TNT to find out.
*UPDATE* Heat 103 | Pacers 102 | Heat Lead Series 1-0
