Following his Gangsta Boo & Tricky remix of ‘Ima Read’ comes Zebra Katz’ new video for ‘W8WTF’ a harrowing new single produced by Boyfriend. The airy, agonised beat works as a perfect soundbed for Katz eerily calm flow – the stylish video takes place in an apartment (hotel?) and features some rather couture’ish sado-garms.
Could this be the album cover for Aaliyah’s much debated posthumous album? The cover above which uses the iconic image of Aaliyah swimming during her ‘Rock the Boat’ video, along with her famous ‘A’ symbol, was was tweeted by Barry Hankerson, the founder of the late singers record label Blackground Records. Accompanying the image was a message that read: “Aaliyah posthumous 2013 16 unreleased tracks produced by @Drake @OVO40 Enough said #TeamAaliyah”.
Sounds pretty official to us. What do you think of the cover?
Listen to the albums first single ‘Enough Said’ featuring Drake here.
I’m gonna need 2 Chainz to organise my next birthday party – watch up top and see how he and Kanye celebrate their birth. ‘Birthday Song’ is taken off Chainz’ newly released debut album Based On a T.R.U Story – ratchet behaviour.
Continuing their run of incredible releases this year, London based record label PMR (currently celebrating a #5 chart position with Jessie Ware’s debut album), is also home to the likes of Two Inch Punch, Julio Bashmore and most recently this gentleman, T.Williams. Currently readying the release of his new EP Pain & Love, Williams discharges ‘Moving Fast’ – a full-on, high octane offering that draws heavily on his love for 90′s House/UKG. To the dance.
Tapping into their West Coast heritage, Oakland based Rap duo Main Attrakionz team up with DaVinci on this Harry Fraud produced new jam titled ‘Do It For the Bay’. Taken off their Bossalinis & Fooliyones mixtape (October 23rd), ‘Do It For The Bay’ boasts twinkling keys, crisp hi-hats and a very wavy groove.
New visuals from Nottingham based producer Citizen whose been steadily dropping a nice stream of 90′s inspired House over the past few months. ‘Room Service’ is a fabulous 4/4 stomper with seductive vocal loops, intoxicated chord stabs and an infectious undercurrent. Oh, and don’t forget to listen to the song when watching the video…
If ‘Ima Read’ was fierce, this new remix featuring Njena Redd Foxx, Gangsta Boo & Tricky is outright vicious. Reading enemies as casually they would their shopping list, Katz, Foxx and co aim to maim with callous shade – “Ima chop that bitch / Ima slice that bitch / Ima dice that bitch / Ima ice that bitch / I don’t like that bitch”.
Zebra Katz’ new single, along with a slew of remixes (which will also include appearances from Azealia Banks, Mao, Ira G, Cauzeone, Moroka, I Am A Camera, Ripley, Baise Haus, Nikko and Norrit) will be released via Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint Jeffrrees on September 16th.
Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire unleashes his new video for ‘Position of Passion’, the new single taken off his forthcoming EP Power & Passion. Featuring thick girls on pool tables, flamboyant hood couture, an overly interested Optimus Prime and a whole lot of red light – the new video sees eXquire and his crew taking full advantage of their debauched surroundings while he flows over a 2005 50 Cent beat. Kids, close your ears.
That dreaded album delay strikes again. First A$AP, now Kendrick. Originally slated for an October 2nd release, Lamar will now release his much anticipated debut album on October 22nd. Not the longest postponement but still one that will surely disappoint fans who have been eagerly waiting for what will (or should) hopefully be one of this years best Hip Hop releases.
The Bondax boys offer up some steamy new visuals for their infectious 90′s embraced single ‘Baby I Got That’. Once you’ve dried off, I think it’s important to note how consistently brilliant these guys have been over the past year or so – their sound has and continues to grow in all the right ways, this is definitely among their best work to date.
