Joe Budden‘s Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 The Worst arrived a little early. Make sure you support and buy it when it drops here.
Here’s what Chicago Now says about the new mixtape:
“Joe Budden’s Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 The Worst has arrived a few days early and it is a full mixtape that, based on my favorable early impressions, is shaping up to be one of the strongest mixtapes of the year. You know Budden is gonna keep it real with some eye-opening and thought-provoking lyricism, which he has displayed on various sanctioned leaks leading up until now. I was immediately drawn to one of the mixtapes few, yet big collabos “Dessert 4 Thought”, which not only features a superb verse from Joey, but also from guest stars Styles P and Pusha T. This is the type of project I really need to unwind and listen to from start to finish with no distractions and I look forward to doing just that this weekend. Like I said, from the tracks previously released and some new ones I have begun to sift through, this one is a must-download so don’t hesitate above (shouts 2 UHTN), and check out the ‘making of’ MM4 below.”

Rihanna gets into the Christmas spirit with her new reggae-inspired Christmas song, “A Child Is Born.” Christmas is still roughly two months away, but Rihanna had released a snippet of the new reggae-flavoured Christmas song back in September and let me start off by saying that it really got me into the Christmas spirit. It’s a huge change from the usual festive ballads, Rihanna has gone for an upbeat sound on the track.
The song is featured on a compilation album titled ‘Now That’s What I Call Christmas, Vol. 4,’ which was released yesterday (Tuesday, October 12).
The new album consists of 36 tracks, which will be split on 2 discs (No you don’t have to go out and buy two separate albums, they are both in one album). As for the other tracks included on the album, will include, Lady GaGa‘s “Christmas Tree”, Britney Spears‘ “My Only Wish (This Year),” Christina Aguilera’s “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” Kelly Rowland’s “Wonderful Christmastime” and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You”.
Rihanna had also recently announced that the song “Only Girl (In The World)” will be the first track to be taken from her next album “Loud”, which will be released in November.
‘I didn’t want to go backward and remake [2008 album] ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’. I wanted the next step in the evolution of Rihanna,’ she said during a webchat on her official website Rihannanow.com.
‘I’m gonna miss the [2009 album] ‘Rated R’ era too, but NOTHING compares to the album I just made.’

British duo La Roux calls on Kanye West to collaborate for their latest single, “In for the Kill.” In the remix version, lead singer Elly Jackson icily coos over cut-and-paste synths, allowing Kanye to show off his skills midway through the tune. “The Thriller version of Michael,” raps West, who will also appear in the music video.
In a recent interview with MTV News Jackson said:
“He’s a very exciting person to be around. He’s a special breed of person. He’s not quite like anyone I’ve ever met before.” “He’s very, very, very creative. He comes up with ideas every five seconds. We’ve had a very interesting three days. It’s a very interesting mix of things.”
