4. Pharrell x Daft Punk: “Get Lucky”
5. Imagine Dragons: “Radioactive”

In a strange turn of events earlier this week, the National Music Publishers Association decided to start going after a ton of websites that post song lyrics. They claim they are only going after sites “that engage in blatant illegal behavior, which significantly impacts songwriters’ ability to make a living.” Whatever that means. They sent out 50 take-down notices, including one to Rap Genius. So what did Rap Genius do? They promptly signed a licensing contract with Sony/ATV and can now operate freely and without any hassle from the NMPA. Wise move fellas.
Whoa Drake, you can’t just go out and drop 4 songs on us like that. That’s just way too much to take in with all this new music dropping from literally EVERYONE. Drake also announced that he’ll be dropping his album September 17th. Here are the four new songs.

Looks like we’ve already heard a lot of the songs that are supposed to be on Lil’ Wayne’s “I am not a Human Being 2″ project coming out very soon . Can’t wait to hear the rest of the ones that haven’t been released yet. Complete tracklist and features above.
It’s no surprise that A$AP Rocky’s album did very well selling 141,003 copies in the first week. He’s always had a core fan base that comes through for him and the album was an incredible piece of work. Even with the project leaking about a month early everything still went well on the sales chart to put A$AP Rocky at the top with “Long.Live.A$AP”.
Some people would oppose putting this up, but Riff Raff is just way too funny of a dude not to give any attention to. The fact that he dropped this mixtape on 12/12/12 is pretty hilarious too. So hit the link below if you want some very eccentric music on your iTunes.
Been waiting for this mixtape to drop for a while now and here it is. Chris Webby is not to be slept on as he’s been in the industry for a super long time but is finally getting the look he deserves. Having your own Gangsta Grillz mixtape hosted by DJ Drama is one huge accomplishment for any artist.
If you’ve been getting tired of hearing dubstep drops in just about every song these days, don’t worry, The Roots are back to restore the balance. They’ve just announced that a new album is on the way and the title of it will be &TYSYC. Stay tuned for more information as we’re sure details are on the way.
