Wale’s first album on MMG, Ambition, album drops November 1st.
FKB became one of our favorites after seeing the “40 oz” video. They’ve dropped a couple solid leaks since and the ATL crew has geared up for the launch of their newest mixtape Eastside Paradise. That raw talent from the group, paired with their grind against manufactured and traditional 2011 rap and radio, make them a force to be reckoned with. Plus, we found them on our world famous forums, so you know it’s love.
Tracklist and link after the jump.
Next up on the schedule for Big Sean: the “Dance (A$$)” video. He also said he’s about two songs in for the new album, so he’s definitely on his grizzle right now.
Producer: Big K.R.I.T.
Album: Trouble Man
Label: Grand Hustle / Atlantic Records
Tip is officially a free man, so why not release the song we’ve all been waiting for? “I’m Flexin” features Big K.R.I.T. who also handles the production on the record.
Also, more T.I. on the way as he says he has already jumped on Ye & Jay’s “Niggas In Paris” instrumental, “Spend It” by 2 Chainz and Ke$ha’s “Sleazy” so be sure a mix tape will more than likely be out soon. It’s the KING BITCH!
Sway remembers ATCQ and the movement they created up in New York, who he says created a lane for all the creative people who didn’t know how to channel that energy and they related to people outside of NYC.
He also mentions how the diversity in hip-hop at that time was beautiful and how every artist in different regions had a lane and could survive in that atmosphere.
You can read VH1′s Album-Versaries piece, celebrating 20 years of the Low End Theory on their site now.
Ok, let’s catch up on what T.I. has done in the [2 and a half] days he’s been out:
Not to mention, we’re still waiting on “I’m Flexing” featuring Big K.R.I.T. but it really makes you wonder what other tracks he remixed so far. He’s really going hardbody. Let’s just call it right now and say he’ll jump on an Alley Boy or Trouble track, do a Waka Flocka remix and maybe do something with YMCMB. T.I. back?
Yo TIP, if you’re reading this, spit a verse to Trouble’s “Flatline,” though. For real.
Common was supposed to the next single from his The Dreamer, The Believer album a couple days ago, but he delayed the release of the track so he could make some tweaks to it before unleashing it on the population. Luckily the LA Leakers caught him and he was kind enough to spit a verse from the song on video.
That was a cool verse and all bro, but we need the track in MPEG Layer 3 Audio File format, though. Thanks, management.

Like it’s not enough for Mac Miller to sell out shows worldwide on the Blue Slide Park Tour all these months, Young Mac just joined Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera for the official remix to their “Moves Like Jagger” single, which currently sits AT NUMBER 1 on the Billboard Top 100 charts right now. That’s swag.
In related Mac Miller news, he’s letting fans control the release date for his new album Blue Slide Park with pre-orders. If he reaches 25K, he will be releasing the title track from the album.

Yeah, you guys aren’t up on the SPACEGHOST wave just yet, but it’s about to hit real soon. This new Purrp track is on that mellow swag ish and he keeps it trill over a soul sample. Light something and put yourself on.
Word Drizzy? You’re just going to rep the current Miami Heat team and pit them against some of the greatest NBA teams of all time? Cool story, guy. The video game looks O.D. epic already though.

For those familiar with The 58′s crew (a Pittsburgh collective of MC’s on the rise), B. White’s name should already ring bells. His latest project The Evidence is a showcase of his skills, already shown on previous works, and proves why he is one of the most lyrical cats to come out of the ‘Burgh right now. Guest appearances include The 58′s family (Vinny Radio, Franchise and Mayo) and production by Big Jerm, Sayez and more.
We’ve already given you a couple leaks from the project, and we guarantee this is not something you should sleep on. Salute to the 412! Tracklist and link after the jump

We can’t say we’ve heard of Vell before but we’ve been listening to so much Too $hort on this side, the title caught our eye. Turns out it’s a dedication to the Bay Area OG. It’s definitely got that bounce, so the West Coast should be rocking with this in the clubs type heavy, soon. What’s our favorite word? “BEEYATCH!”
