Exclusive Audio: Special by Bei Maejor + Official Upscale EP Artwork

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

As Bei Maejor readies for the release of his innovative Upsacle EP on the 29th, he has unleashed just one more track from the cradle, “Special”. Bei takes a seeming laid-back melody, adds an up-tempo kick with pop glare; definitely a style all his own. The track was made sweeter with a shout out to a budding love, like Blue Ivy. “Special” is definitely a ‘feel good’ song, and just one of many original songs you’ll love from the forthcoming project.

Pusha T Schools Some Anonymous Rapper

Here I was just minding my own business, and low and behold Pusha T was schooling some anonymous rapper via twitter. Thank God he didn’t @ dude via twitter, because there would be no redemption from that. Peep what he had to say: “If your music was good, I’d work with u. Its really not good, I promise u its not. We like new talent…from everywhere. I’m really serious. I’m gonna help u. 1st, change your name. 2nd, put out music with virals so u can have an identity. I want u to make it, but honestly u never will. I promise u won’t. U have the wrong attitude…u should listen to me my son…I’ll guide u. I don’t wanna laugh at u, I wanna help u…but u have to find your talent first. U have none…but u can grow it if u practice. Try my son. I’ve been…

Gear: Gourmet Footwear’s Dignan Microdot

My favorite shoemakers are back at it again… Gourmet Footwear has taken one of my favorite shoes (the Dignan) based off of the creation story, and elevated it’s style to another level by adding microdots. With the launch of the Dignan last season we new the color opportunity would be limitless. The nylon bag, either solid, printed, whatever. We are offering it for Spring 12 in a micro dot pattern reminiscent of early 90′s print applications and birdseye stitch pattern influence. The Dignan for Spring 12 in Black and White micro dot. This kick is nicely priced at $100 bucks and is now available for purchase at GourmetFootwear.com

Audio: Party + Bullsh*t by Rito Ora

I absolutely love Rita Ora, so when I heard that Jay-Z took her on a New York radio run yesterday, I was more than ecstatic because I knew it was ‘her time’. Here’s Rita’s new song “Party + Bullsh*t”, her first single from her debut Roc Nation project. It’s a pop track that samples a Biggie line, and definitely has summer jam potential.

Limp Bizkit Signs To Cash Money Records, Ashanti Up Next?

This may very well be one of the most obscure yet intelligent signings I’ve seen the Young Money-Cash Money brand make. Just the other day they signed Christina Millian, but to support Weezy’s rock ventures, the label inked papers with infamous rockers, Limp Bizkit. Lil Wayne called into New York’s 98.7 Kiss FM to announce the news. Lil Wayne: “As far as Cash Money, they’re always listening and looking at acts, so honestly, it’s like every other day I hear about somebody new just signed to Cash Money… The other day I just found out Limp Bizkit signed to Cash Money. So they’re signing everybody and everybody’s getting a chance.” Note that Limp Bizkit’s new affiliation with Cash Money does not mean he’s affiliated with Young Money, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a rock collaboration to be expected in the near future.
