Download It!: Wiz Khalifa – “Cabin Fever”

The recent commercial success of rapper Wiz Khalifa has taken him to new heights in the hip-hip world. His most recent single, “Black and Yellow,” landed him a No.1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 list and has attracted the attention of hip-hop heavyweights like Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg and Juicy J of Three 6 Mafia.

Wiz‘s most recent work, “Cabin Fever”, is a nine track mixtape which features the witty rhymes of Wiz along with up-and-comer Big Sean, Trae Tha Truth and Juicy J. Compared to his older work, “Cabin Fever” is a far cry from his past mixtapes – the production seems to be repetitive, the lyrics are dumbed down and the good ol’ money, cars, clothes montage keeps repeating itself throughout the tape.

Regardless of the slight downfalls of the tape, it serves its purpose as being the prequel to Wiz‘s major label debut, ‘Rolling Papers’, which is scheduled to release on March 29 of Atlantic Records.

“Cabin Fever” starts off with the airy sounding “Phone Numbers” that features the boastful rhymes of Big Sean along with a verse from Trae The Truth. Big Sean effortlessly steals the spotlight on the song and makes it one of the best tracks on the tape. Wiz bounces back on the title track “Cabin Fever”, which has been surfacing around the Internet for about a year now. The eerie feel of the piano driven song sets the pace for the rest of the tape.

The tag team of Wiz and Big Sean shows up again on “GangBang,” – a track that doesn’t really showcase any of Wiz‘s lyrical prowess but makes for a great party record or something to play in the car with a sub-woofer. “WTF” and “Homicide” are other noticeable standouts on the tape and leave the listener yearning for the release of a full-length studio album from Wiz.

Whether it’s because of his absurd amount of tattoos or his widely known Twitter account, after a long stretch of being labeled an underground rapper, Wiz has finally found the formula for commercial success. Even though older fans of his music might argue that his sound is changing and his music won’t ever sound the same again, Wiz provides his fans with what they’ve been waiting for: new music.

Music In Ya Ear!: Rihanna ft. Drake – “What’s My Name?”

Rihanna’s steamy collaboration Drake, the Island-infused love jam “What’s My Name”, off of Rihanna‘s ‘LOUD’ album, is the number one song in the country right now. Perfect timing for the song’s video to drop, no? In the video, Rihanna and Drake get touchy-feely with one another.

Drake told the New York Times back in June about his brief relationship with Rihanna after she had asked him to write a song for her (that was never released).

“I was a pawn,” he said. “You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear. I was like, wow, this feels terrible.”

Looks like the two artists were able to kiss (on camera) and make up to make this sweet new video. We’ll cheers to that!

Check out the video and download the track after the jump…

Download It!: Kanye West ft. John Legend ~ The-Dream ~ Ryan Leslie ~ Tony Williams ~ Charlie Wilson ~ Elly Jackson ~ Alicia Keys ~ Fergie ~ Kid Cudi ~ Rihanna ~Elton John – “All Of The Lights”


Here goes the most anticipated remaining track, to Kanye West‘s “G.O.O.D. Fridays”, called “All Of The Lights” off of his upcoming album, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ which is just a few weeks away from being released on November 22nd. YAY!!!

The song is created with the triumphant feel of the multiple horns, the melody, and the production. The song features the likes of, John Legend, The-Dream, Ryan Leslie, Tony Williams, Charlie Wilson, La Roux’s Elly Jackson, Alicia Keys, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Rihanna, and the legendary Elton John. West does all the verses and the guest stars are scattered throughout hooks and bridges. Kanye uses a combination of rapping, singing, repetition, and memorable lines. If that doesn’t keep you entertained enough, then the bridges sure will.

From the fellas to the female’s “we’re going all the way this time” breakdown, which is sick from beginning to end. The song is DOPE from start to finish. Kanye not only did his thing personally, but made it all work with the talent involved by creating such a unique sound from one to the next. Nothin’ but thumbs up for Kanye West, he definitely knows how to create some good tunes. The single is getting tons of buzz around the net, and is quite epic, so be sure to check it out below.

Download & Listen to the after the jump….Enjoy it, it’s DOPE!!

Download It!: Rihanna ft. Eminem – “Love The Way You Lie (Part 2)”

Rihanna and Eminem had just released a haunting sequel to their summer smash hit which explored the psyche of domestic violence, “Love The Way You Lie”. The sequel is slightly slower and less violent, and was designed to be Rihanna’s side of the story. The duo kept the formula of “Love The Way You Lie” quite true to the original, with the chorus intact.

Download It!: Joe Budden – ‘Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 The Worst (Mixtape)’

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.”

Download It!: Rihanna ft. Drake – “What’s My Name”

Rihanna and Drake‘s studio hook-up for, “What’s My Name” has arrived for fans’ listening pleasure. Once involved in a brief fling, they get playful again in this track with Drake throwing some lady-loving rhymes and Rihanna baring all he needs to know to be her man.

Check out an excerpt from the track after the jump….

“I heard you good with them soft lips,” Drake raps. “Yeah, you know word of mouth/ The square root of 69 is 8-something/ Right? ‘Cause I’ve been trying to work it out/ Good weed, white wine, I come alive in the nighttime/ OK, away we go/ Only thing we have on is the radio/ Let it play, say you gotta leave, but I know you wanna stay.”

Rihanna responds, “Not everybody knows how to work my body/ Knows how to make me want it/ But boy you stay up on it/ You got that something/ That keeps me so off balance/ Baby, you’re a challenge/ Let’s explore your talents.” She sings more in her next lines, “Hey, boy, I really want to see if you can go downtown with a girl like me/ Hey, boy, I really want to be with you, ’cause you’re just my type.”

Rihanna told BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Max in a recent interview:

“Drake is such a cool guy. He is one of my great friends. We actually just did a song together. It’s going to be on my album. The second song, we did another version with him. We may even shoot a video for it. I went out with him Trey and J Cole recently we had a lot of fun.”

Both the original and remixed versions of “What’s My Name” are recorded for Rihannna‘s November 16 album ‘Loud’. A music video for the original song has been filmed last month in New York, but according to a report on Ryan Seacrest’s blog, she will shoot another video possibly with Drake on October 28 for the revamped track.

“I hope we get to shoot a video for that too,” Drake told MTV News. “I’m really excited about that song.”

Chris Brown Reacts….

The newly-revealed song has been all over the web and apparently has been heard by Chris Brown. Despite his ill-fated romance with her, the male R&B performer praised the collaboration. Chris Brown took it to his Twitter to respond to new single “What’s My Name” by saying;

Rihanna releases ‘Loud’ on November 15th.

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.”
