I’m not about to go back and forth about whose the greatest because I come from 90′s rap where Biggie, Jay-Z, and Nas ruled the game and New York was where Hip Hop ruled. Fast forward many, many years later and new group of young fish are planting their name in the hip hop history books unfortunately only a handful of those new fish are making any noise in the water….
Kendrick Lamar came out swinging declaring himself the King of New York and I’m sure by now you’ve all heard or at least seen the destructive lyrical blow KDot delivered to some of his industry besties. Long story short the track (“Control“) didn’t make Big Sean‘s album deadline because of sample clearance and he decided to drop the song last night to which the social media world went into compulsions of epic proportions.
One thing is for sure Kendrick Lamar has put some well-known MC’s on notice (Drake, Meek Mill, Wale, Big Sean, Jay Electronica, A$ap, J.Cole) which prompted Va spitfire Pusha T to tweet in response to the fire record:
“I hear u loud and clear my nigga… @kendricklamar”
Whoa… a few other people decided to jump into the melee but you know controversy always brings out the roaches and has beens….anyway check out the track ‘Control’ below. Big Sean featuring Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica below.
New school rappers/MC’s step your game up. Lets make hip hop interesting again!

Wow the mixtape game has been on lock this week. Everyone from Lil’ Wayne to a St. Lunatic have been keeping eager fans happy with a full set of new music…. I mean who really needs a studio album anymore when you can drop mixtape?
Now riding off of the heat this past weekend by performing alongside the likes of his G.O.O.D Music brethren, rapper Big Sean gives the world a taste of his hometown on ‘Detroit‘. The 16-track mixtape guest list features Chris Brown, Young Jeezy, Tyga, and Kendrick Lamar and few others not mentioned. The new musical offering is said to be in anticipation for Sean’s upcoming sophomore album dropping sometime later this year a follow-up to ‘Finally Famous‘.

I was actually working some visuals in my head (as I do all my favorite songs) on the way home this afternoon before knowing anything about the “Mercy” video actually premiering today. Although it was confusing in spots, being that I’am a fan of the song anything else is secondary.
The G.O.O.D compilation album ‘Cruel Summer’ is expected to drop any week now so make sure you keep it here for an ‘Official’ Album Review! Anyway Check Out The Official video for one of the hottest songs hitting the airwaves this summer as Kanye Wes employs the all-star cast of Big Sean, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz to the bawse track. Hopefully we can get a live performance at the BET Awards this year…

As a avid fan of all things Kanye West I’m thoroughly promoting and supporting the G.O.O.D music movement. Yeezy remixes fellow Chi-Town rapper Chief Keef‘s single ‘I Don’t Like’ and invites Pusha T, Jadakiss, and Big Sean to super-size the deal.
While I really hate to admit it but Yeezy still has a thing for Amber Rose and it’s quite evident in his lyrics… Oh well. Sometimes music is the only therapy.…Ask me cause I know…
Thanks Rap-Up (168)
So I guess Kanye West is having the best week ever… After dropping the fired up heat ‘Theraflu’ and posing out in public with girlfriend Kim Kardashian, Kanye continues his G.O.O.D Friday music drops with ‘Mercy’… The all-star set includes Kanye, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and Pusha T… The track is certified ill. I’m a fan of each individual on this posse cut and I’m thoroughly anticipating the G.O.O.D Music Complication album. The new disc will feature Marsha Ambrosius, John Legend, Common and Frank Ocean.
Check out some groupie love after the break..

Slight Work is definitely one of my favorite tracks from Wale‘s ‘Ambition‘ album and the catchy beat (which gives me a Baltimore Club Music vibe) will most surely get the club goers rocking well into the night. The video premiered tonight and is directed by Chris Brown! #DMV Stand Up!!!!

LoL my boy Ludacris is on a roll and he ain’t wasting no time listening to the pity parties and retractions from Drizzy Drake and Big Sean. After releasing his Gigawatts mixtape to a much talked about buzz Luda has already dropped some visuals for his ‘Bada Boom’ diss track. The video starts off with a young woman logging on to a computer and searching through some of hip hop’s most famous beefs. The teary eyed girl is in shock and disbelief before Ludacris comes through and rev’s up the engine..
Ludacris usually doesn’t go at people’s necks so I take it he’s a little mad or just trying to prove a point. Either way It’s gonna be interesting to see if his targets respond. I’m sure Wayne has given Drake the ‘NO Respond’ policy as he did Nicki..
Let’s wait in the rafters together.. Peep out the vid after the break..

The war of words is heating up and quite frankly it’s all shits and giggles to me.. I know Ludacris is beyond scared tactics and name calling considering Big Sean and Drake are mere flys to the game but sometimes enough is enough…
After dropping his Gigawatts mixtape this past Tuesday the world became abuzz about 2 tracks in particular, a interlude ‘History Lesson’ and the song that followed ‘Bada Boom’. In the two cuts Ludacris addresses Drake and Big Sean’s comments about said rappers stealing their styles.. well after the dust had settled both rappers have now responded both direct and indirectly…

Butt Pads and Arse Injections are fair game over here as Big Sean invites Nicki Minaj to showcase her ‘ASSets’ proper on the set of his new video ‘A$$’ remix. Nicki Lewinsky returns to her original black locks and we all are once again happy. I know I am!

Kelly Rowland finally releases the long awaited video for “Lay It On Me” today feat Big Sean. We got some visual and a behind the scenes look a few weeks ago and now finally have the finished product.
I’m a fan of Kelly and I think she has the potential to be right up there with the best of them. In my opinion she holds back on her music often keeping fans disgruntled with the lack of promotion she puts in for her albums. Here I Am is packed full of great singles and here’s hoping she capitalizes on the greatness…
Peep put the video below.
