New Music: B*tch Bad by Lupe Fiasco

Lupe Fiasco released another single off of his forthcoming, Food & Liquor 2, and its a little short of the quality I expected…. The track is called “B*tch Bad”, and it’s literally 4 minutes and 51 seconds of Lupe explaining the different ways a woman and her son can interpret the word “b*tch”.

Azealia Banks Performs “212” During Hackney Weekend

Over the weekend, Azealia Banks, hit the stage at Hackney Weekend… The Harlem emcee absolutely killed her set, while rocking high-waist shorts, a net crop top and some Doc Martens. — As Azealia took to the stage to perform her hit “212”, she reminded the audience: “this is the one that started it all”. It’s crazy how much her stage performance has improved since we saw video of her at Coachella. I can’t wait to see her live!

Kelis Speaks On Her Wedding Dress Being On Nas’ Album Cover, + ‘Life Is Good’ Tracklist

NME caught up with Kelis while she was at the Isle of Wight Festival, to ask her how she felt about her wedding dress appearing on the cover of Nas‘ newest album, Life Is Good. She kept it pretty kosher, saying she respects the art of it.

“I respect that Nas wears his feelings on his sleeve…”

Way to keep it classy Kelis… Although I will admit, I miss seeing her & Nas together. —  Check out NasLife Is Good cover and tracklist after the break.

Trailer: Lecrae Readies For ‘Gravity’ Release

Lecrae is gearing up for his cross-over release, Gravity, due out later this fall. — As a Christian artist, it’s easy to be pigeon-holed into a type of sound with respect to your fans and production… But just as Lecrae showed with his project Church Clothes, given enough latitude, he packs a punch. With Gravity, I hope he continues to place his artistry and growth ahead of the typecast sound. Gravity doesn’t have an official release date yet, but you can expect some new music from it soon.

Jay-Z + Rihanna Perform “Run This Town” During Hackney Weekend, Beyonce Moshes #TurnUp

If you’ve never heard of Hackney Weekend, it’s like the United Kingdom’s version of Hot 97‘s Summer Jam. Hackney is huge and this year was headlined by none other than, Jay-Z! — No better way to christen a Jay-headlined show than with a guest performance by RihannaRiri joined Jay on stage for a #StruggleRendition of “Run This Town”.

Anyways… Catch Beyonce ‘turning up’, in the middle of a “N*ggas In Paris” mosh pit, after the break.

Video: Hell’s Angel by Thurz feat. BJ The Chicago Kid

Thurz finally releases the visual to “Hell’s Angel”, featuring BJ The Chicago Kid. The song is one of my favourite songs from Thurz’ L.A. Riots album, and the video takes it to another level… In the video, Thurz and his leading lady ‘taking a trip’,  which the visual portrays that the trip holds not so kosher intentions, which in turn leads to someone’s capture. Yikes!
