The LA based brothers of Breakdown snagged this dance floor jam from Daft Punks new Tron Movie soundtrack and fed it 4Loko. Pwelbs asked me to bring some electro to the site, here you go.

This is the first installment in a series I’ve entitled “Good Times.” The basic idea is to do more than just shoot music videos with hip-hop artists. I wanted to get a story out of them and keep it simple. For my first effort I linked up with Chicago area, DC-born rhymesayer Dave Coresh (no relation to infamous Waco man Dave Koresh). DC takes time out to drop a couple of freestyle snippets and explain his amazing teeth all whilst riding the L.

Another cut off of T.I.’s upcoming album No Mercy, Drake is a hot commodity these days and seems to be poppin’ up on everyone’s album, except Yeezy’s.

Here’s a glimpse into the life of Cudi on the road to the soundtrack of “Mojo So Dope” doing photoshoots and raging hard.
A new mixtape from CB, watch out for the DJ Drama tags they’ll get ya. Tagless songs will be released. Features include Gucci and Big Sean. This tape is promising.

A gorgeous new video from Chicago’s own Kids These Days. This bunch of talent has a real bright future. The rapper of the group, Vic Mensa has a buzzing solo career of his own. These kids are definitely on to something and I’m real excited to see what they become. It’s looking like this video is just the start of something truly special. Be sure to grab an MP3 of the track below.
Catch Vic Mensa opening for Mac Miller, December 10th at Reggie’s Rock Club. Check more info about the show at CrowdNoize.
Spotted at Fake Shore Drive. Shout out to Cody too.
This one will be on Travis Barker’s Let the Drummer Get Wicked V.1 mixtape. Dope!
The Blink-182 drummer is also releasing a solo album titled Give The Drummer Some in February.

Wiz really is the most consistent rapper in the game right now. A fresh new tune from the Pittsburgh emcee.
Wiz also adds a verse to one of my favorite tracks (and samples) of the year. “Fuck The Money” was originally featured on B.o.B.’s mixtape May 25th. The track is produced by Kanye West.
Dope! Jeezy drops some bars over this years anthem. Where is TM 103?
One of the best drops a few bars on a couple pop trakcs. The first one is pretty radio friendly. If it means more shine for Pusha, it’s fine with me.
Ya wonder how some of these tracks come together though.
These two unexpectedly released a beautiful new EP of covers and original material. Every song is fantastic. Definitely get this one if your a fan of either artist. Must have of the weekend.
1. Shiny Suit Pt. 2
2. You Are
3. Freedom (Ft. Talib Kweli)
4. Hey Girl (Original Rough)
5. No Other Love
6. Come Over (Ft. Sean Paul)
7. Fall In Love
Some unidentified new Mike Posner. I believe this one is produced by Clinton Sparks.
I really wish this dude would retreat back to the content he put out in his mixtape days. Let’s be honest his album was a big pile of dog shit.

New music from X to the V. Not sure if it will make it on to XV’s upcoming mixtape The Kid With The Green Backpack.
Minnesota fellas coming together for a real smooth joint. A part of Audio Perm’s weekly series.

This Ohio native talent has been someone I’ve had my eye on since I stumbled upon his work this past summer. This time around MGK drops a darker mixtape (despite the fresh artwork) of solid heart felt material at a million words a minute. Some solid production and guest work from some unknowns solidify the experience. The right singles and this dude could take off…he is all laced up at this point. Now it’s just a race to the finish.
Keri and Kanye looks to rekindle the flame after their last collaboration. Sounds decent enough this time around too.
Donnis (who has been quiet lately) grabs the buzzing CyHi Da Prynce for a track all about…well…you know.
Jay and Ye showing everyone how it’s done. Let’s assume this is a leak off their collaboration album Watch The Throne. This knocks!
Probably one of the most anticipated tracks off T.I.’s No Mercy, dropping December 7th. Honestly, it’s hard to imagine both Kanye and CuDi getting inspired on a track like this while they were both working on their own solo efforts. Ah well….

The one and only T-Pain puts his own auto-tuned twist on two Wiz and Waka Flocka’s radio hits. They actually aren’t too bad!
The first video off the homie Add-2′s latest project, Tale Of Two’s City v.4: Better Days.

B.o.B. literally goes into beast mode on this one. This dude can spit harder than your favorite rapper and write pop songs. He wins.
B.o.B.’s No Genre mixtape dropping December 7th.
Well I’m sure the fellas had fun filming this one. Smooth stuff from Mike P.
