Tim Westwood been dropping classic footage recently and now that Yeezy Season is officially here, he decides to release a clip of Kanye West spitting a crazy freestyle back in 2005. This was during his promo run for “Late Registration” and definitely upsets me that he won’t be doing stuff like this to promo his new album. Oh well, “Yeezus” in stores June 18th.
Prepare for a new album from 2 Chainz on September 10th. There is no title for the project yet but its nice to have a release date for now.
FEATURES ON HAULT… NEW ALBUM ON THE WAY SEPTEMBER TENTH!!!!

Looks like The Weeknd has reached quite the landmark as his “Trilogy” LP released in November 2012, has officially hit gold. More than 500 000 copies of the project have been shipped and with it being a 3 piece CD, each individual remastered mixtape featured in the package counts as a copy. Congrats to Abel and we hope to hear a new project from the singer this year.
UPDATE: The album has now reached platinum status but don’t forget being that it is has 3 discs that he only sold 333k copies. Still impressive for a majority of free music released before hand. Congrats to him and the XO camp.
Here’s part one of the three part documentary series on The Dream called “The Man.” In part one Terius Youngdell Nash shares the difficulties and life lessons that propelled his career and shaped his parenting philosophy. His new album “IV Play” drops everywhere May 28th.
J. Cole has a quick conversation with FUSE where he reveals working with TLC on his upcoming sophomore album “Born Sinner.” If it ends up like something similar to “Nobody’s Perfect” with Missy Elliott on his last album then we are in for a treat. Don’t expect to hear any rap features on the new LP that drops June 18th either.
