Fashawn is easily one of my favorite west coast emcees right now. I’m just diving into this mixtape and it already tastes good. A few tracks are produced by J. Cole too.
Hosted by DJ Ill Will and DJ Rockstar.
Premiered at XXL Magazine.
Fashawn gets G.O.O.D. guest features for this remix which serves as the latest installment of his Sunday School series.
Fashawn’s next project Higher Learning 2 is set to drop February 15th.

These four Chicago artists come together for a Gatorade Campaign to create a “Chicago anthem.” Dope, right? Watch the video up top to get some background on the track.
Interesting note by Andrew over at Fake Shore Drive – this is the first time Common and Lupe have appeared on a track together. Hard to believe!
“Common, Jennifer Hudson, Lupe Fiasco and No I.D. create the new song “We Can Do It Now” inspired by Season 3 of Gatorade REPLAY. REPLAY reunites high school teammates 10+ years later – giving them a second chance to settle a score. Check it out at http://www.REPLAYtheSeries.com.”;

The dirty/CDQ version of G.O.O.D. Music’s cypher at the BET Hip-hop awards. Enjoy.

No words. Just download.
Well this is some classic shit. Unreleased Common from the Finding Forever days.
Hope we see an album from Lonnie in 2010.

Vinnie Paz of the Jedi Mind Tracks recruits the Clipse brothers? You know this is one hell of a fucking track. Tough shit.
Can’t wait to see what else will surfaces from Vinnie’s solo album titled, The Assassin’s Creed.
A couple unreleased Common tracks have hit the net in the last few weeks. This is a real gem as its an extended version of “Start The Show” which is easily my favorite track off Lonnie’s 2007 release Finding Forever. The Kanye hook gets dropped but the 3rd verse is straight heat.

30 Seconds To Mars – Hurricane (Ft. Kanye West) + Common – Strange Fruit ft. John Legend (Prod. Kanye West)
A leftover of Common’s Finding Forever. I guess Cassidy ended up using the beat. What a waste because this is a million times better. I love when stuff like this gets released – we would never get to hear stuff like this a couple of years ago.
No this is not an unreleased track from 808s & Heartbreaks but a new track off 30 Seconds To Mar’s new album.
This beat is fire in its own way. IMO.
Consequence – Whatever U Want [G.O.O.D. Music Remix] (Ft. Kanye West, Common, John Legend, KiD CuDi & Big Sean) + Kidz In The Hall – The Grizzly Man
Well this line-up is stellar. I guess there is yet another one to come? I’m not really sure how much replay value this track has.
So here is the first leak off the new Kidz In The Hall, “Professional Leisure Tour” free EP, dropping December 8th, sponsored by LRG. The project will contain about 13 new tracks, and act as a warmup to the groups third studio album, “Land Of Make Believe” which is set for a March release. This first track samples the indie band Grizzly Bear’s single “Two Weeks” and was recorded while on tour.
I’m really likin’ what Kidz In The Hall are up to these days. Hot sample too.

Kayne West & Malik Yusef – Magic Man ft. Common & John Legend + Mos Def – Say You Will (Kanye West Cover Live)
101 Distribution is releasing the first authorized independent release from Kanye West & G.O.O.D. Music label. The 30 song double disc is called G.O.O.D. Morning, G.O.O.D. Night and is loaded with features from KRS-1, Twista, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Bun B and of course most every G.O.O.D. Music artist.
Sounds like a very interesting project – and this track is a very good start.
Amazing cover of Kanye’s “Say You Will” from the mighty Mos Def. This is crazy stuff and this recording from a recent NY gig sounds crystal clear.
Well this is certainly one hell of a track. Clevland MC Kid Cudi drops a new track with his mentor Kanye West and fellow Chicagoan Common. Lady Ga-Ga on the hook/sample and some pretty dope scratching from my favorite DJ by the name of A-Trak.
I could see this doin well – verse are nice from West and Common and Cudi stands out over this beat. I dig it…right now at least.
Didn’t Cudi say something about retiring?
Speaking of Kanye – this is an interesting track as he raps a duet with Beyonce. No clue what this is but I guess it’s ok. If you like Kanye talking about his ego. Beyonce has an amazing voice. I kinda like the beat when the organ kicks in.
What’s with the tags on this?
