Prodigy's new three-part mixtape R.I.P. may be enough to keep Mobb Deep fans satisfied for years to come.
The M.A.F.E. Project
BJ The Chicago Kid
After scoring his first bonafide hit as a guest artist with Schoolboy Q's "Studio," BJ The Chicago Kid has been quietly dropping some of the best R&B tracks of the year. After releasing eight tracks as one-offs earlier this year, BJ compiles them all into The M.A.F.E. Project and throws in four new tracks as a bonus. Opening with an acapella take on Justin Timberlake's "Strawberry Bubblegum," the project also includes his and Q's remix of Kanye West's "I Can't Hold My Liquor" and a reworking of James Brown's "King Heroin" entitled "Real Love Never Dies."
Salva is a producer from Los Angeles who's responsible for one of the most batshit hip-hop collaborations of the year: "Old English," which brought together the three-headed monster of Freddie Gibbs, Young Thug and A$AP Ferg. Now, he's released a tape -- entitled Peacemaker -- that includes that song, as well as many more collabs with big-name rappers. Gibbs, E-40, Schoolboy Q, Thugger, Ferg, Kurupt, Problem, Ballout, Tadoe, Paul Fisher, Ruckazoid, Starship Connection, Psyde, Bad Lucc and MPA Shitro all guest on the tape.
Stream SHOWTIME, a new offering from Mac Miller, which was released on Sunday, April 21st, 2013. Things are looking better for Mac Miller with each new release, which SHOWTIME has proven yet again. It's worthy addition to the impressive body of work Mac Miller has been developing over the years. We're looking forward to hearing what's next.
