Cover: Birdman x RESPECT Magazine

YMCMB’s head honcho, Birdman, graces the cover of the latest issue of RESPECT Magazine. Now I’ve never been one to question the mag, because typically their a-linear cover selection ‘makes sense’ to me, but I’m just not ‘getting’ Birdman…. Dah well. The issue drops March 6th, support print media. via RR

J. Cole is not taking the fact he was snubbed on MTV’s Hottest MCs list to heart… As a matter of fact, he’s paying the snub no mind. To celebrate surpassing the 2 million follower mark on twitter, Jermaine sampled one of my favorite David Ruffin tracks, “Double Cross”, and serves up a new song, “Grew Up Fast”.It’s that time. This for yall. DoubleDoubleCrossed.I like Cole over soul beats. Keep ’em coming. Download: Grew Up Fast by J. Cole via DreamVillain
