It sounds like Kendrick Lamar and Dr. Dre have been in the lap cooking up some serious heat. We only get a snippet of this new track in the commercial, but can’t wait to create the rest. Definitely an awesome campaign and if that would be dope if that was an actual studio.
Even though it’s Jay Z’s birthday today, it’s also the anniversary of the death of the late great Pimp C. So Jay takes a verse from him and throws it on a “Tom Ford” remix. Listen below.
There’s no arguing that Jay Z is one of the best rappers to ever pick up a microphone, if not THE best. He’s also a great businessman starting Roc Nation, Roca Wear, his own sports agency, and so many more businesses that a lot of people are unaware of. He is one of the most influential people of our generation and feel more than blessed that he has been part of the Rich Kids Brand movement wearing the “Hooligans” sweatshirt to Brooklyn Nets games twice now. We appreciate you big homie and wish you nothing but the best on your 43rd birthday! Here are some of Jay Z’s greatest moments and music videos via YouTube.

There are honestly so many moments that we could post, but that would probably take up the entire work day. Hov is clearly the best to do it in both business and music. He could go out on top right now and say that he’s done it all but the best part about Jay Z is that he’s always looking to do more. Always looking to give back and give the people a great product over and over again.
We met SonReal in Vancouver at a “World of Dance” event have been following the guy ever since. He really puts on for Canadian hip-hop and Van City. Here’s his most recent music video for “Believe”. Listen below.
So hopefully by now you’ve heard about Kanye West signing a deal with Adidas and leaving Nike. It’s actually very official now that Adidas has released a statement about the partnership. Here you go…
“For 2014, we welcome to the adidas family one of the most influential cultural icons of this generation, Kanye West. Well known for breaking boundaries across music, film and design and partnering with our history in street wear culture and leading innovations in sport, we look forward to creating a new chapter. Details to follow.”
There are a lot of songs out there titled “La La La” but this one is clearly one of the best. Here’s Dorrough Music ft. Wiz Khalifa with a brand new one. Turn this one all the way up. L.A. Leakers with the premiere.
Man, R. Kelly is really making a serious come back these days. Say what you want about it but dude has always had one hell of a voice. Here’s his new song with Jeezy “Spend That”.
Justin Timberlake recruits the top names in hip-hop right now and makes one hell of a remix to his stand out track “TKO”. Apparently J. Cole responds to Kendrick’s “Control” verse on this track too. A$AP Rocky and Pusha T also add their two cents.
Hip-hop heads are going to love this track. It’s an unreleased instrumental produced by J Dilla and Joey Bada$$ has teamed up with his foundation to help buy instruments and other musical equipment for underprivileged kids.
