Lose It (Gucci Mane)
French Montana Feat. Rick Ross & Lil Wayne
"Lose It," a leak off of the forthcoming Mac And Cheese: The Album, is vintage French Montana in that is absolutely stacked with A-list rappers -- Lil Wayne and Rick Ross on the feature, Kanye West x The Mekanics on the production.
All Day (Remix)
Kanye West Feat. Kendrick Lamar
What seemed to be a demo version of a Kendrick Lamar verse over Kanye West's "All Day" instrumental made the rounds last week, and now the full version has arrived. Kanye West's verse remain intact on this version, with Kendrick's 16 sandwiched between them.
Vic Mensa Feat. Kanye West
Vic Mensa has been given an immense co-sign by Kanye West over the last couple months, and today he's finally shared his full record, "U Mad," which features a new verse from Ye. We first heard the track performed live at a show in London, but the studio version certainly lives up to the hype. The instrumental sounds a little like the TNGHT-sampling "Blood On The Leaves," and makes us think Hudson Mohawke may be involved.Look out for new efforts from both rappers very soon. Let us know what you think of the new record in the comments.
The Summer League
Wale Feat. Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign
Wale's new album, The Album About Nothing, is due out in a week. To give it an extra promotional push, the rapper has released a new joint that will not appear on the album. The summer-ready record, aptly titled "The Summer League," features Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign, and was premiered today on Hot 97. What do you think of it? Stay tuned for the CDQ.
Migos just announced the June 16 release date for their much-hyped debut album YRN Tha Album, which will feature spots from Lil Wayne, Meek Mill, and Chris Brown. While we wait, though, continue to expect essential non-album cuts like this one, "People's Elbow".
We heard hints of "Awesome" on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," and Kanye also performed at the Met Ball in 2013. Now, two years later, the song has leaked in its fully glory. Presumably an ode to Ye's muse, Kim Kardashian, "Awesome" is a slow-moving auto-tuned love ballad. If Kanye hadn't already made his undying love for Kimmy Cakes known, it's definitely clear here.
Kanye West Feat. Theophilus London & Allan Kingdom
Anticipation for Kanye West's "All Day" has been extremely high since he debuted it on the Brit Awards last week. Now the official version has made it's way online for you and your friends to mob to. Of course, it features Theophilus London & Allan Kingdom. Censored version for now. CDQ version added.
Heard 'Em Say
Kanye West Feat. Adam Levine
Kanye West's "All Day" blew everyone's minds yesterday, so we thought we'd look back to one of the rapper's classic singles as our throwback. "Heard 'Em Say" may not be your immediate pick for the best of Kanye's back catalog, but it's hard to deny that Jon Brion bassline, and proves that Kanye has been talking politics and race from day 1, even if he wasn't yelling ("and I know that the government administer AIDS").
One Man Can Change The World (Statik Selektah Remix)
Big Sean Feat. Kanye West & John Legend
As Big Sean's forthcoming album Dark Sky Paradise had the cocky, brash and somewhat petty "IDFWU" as its lead single, it was jarring in the best way possible to hear him drop "One Man Can Change The World," which is pretty much the polar opposite. Now veteran producer Statik Selektah has offered up a remix of the Kanye West and John Legend-featuring cut.
One Man Can Change The World
Big Sean Feat. Kanye West & John Legend
Before Dark Sky Paradise arrives next week, Big Sean’s highly anticipated record “One Man Can Change The World” featuring Kanye West & John Legend has surfaced online tonight by way of early pre-orders.
"Appreciate Ya", the latest leak from Joell Ortiz, proves that real lyricism is still alive and well. In true rapper's rapper fashion, the NY MC unleashes a flood of dope bars and slick metaphors over a soulful production laced by the often overlooked Heatmakerz. The song, which was premiered by Funkmaster Flex, also features audio of an old Funk Flex interview with Kanye West and Pusha T, where both Ye and Push praise the Slaughterhouse member's lyrical capabilities. Mr. West even calls Ortiz "fresh." How fresh do you think this new joint from Joell Ortiz is?
Big Sean Feat. Drake & Kanye West
Big Sean said there was new music coming, and boi did he deliver. Linking back up with Drizzy Drake, Sean decides to liberate this monster Vinylz-produced collab titled "Blessings".
Last night, Kanye West dropped "Only One," his latest masterpiece track about his mother. Not many rappers have given us such an honest window into their relationships with their moms (other than 2Pac), but with tracks like "Family Business" and "Coldest Winter," West has time and time again shown love to the late Donda West.
Kanye West Feat. Paul McCartney
Well here’s a nice way to ring in your 2015. Outta nowhere, Kanye West decides to treat fans to his new single “Only One” featuring Paul McCartney.
Chief Keef Feat. Kanye West
Chief Keef has a good number of projects slated for release in the near future, but perhaps the most anticipated is Nobody, mainly due to the fact that a snippet of the title track has had fans patiently awaiting its arrival ever since hitting the web this summer.
Pusha T has been noticeably absent from our lives. The G.O.O.D. Music and former Clipse MC is all about high-quality rhymes and production, so that tends to mean he puts out less (but in a less-is-more sort of way). We've seen him appear as a feature, recently on he popped up on electronic producer Tiga's "Bugatti" record for something different. However now we find him back at what he does best, menacing bars over a crazy beat. Literally the beat sounds a bit bi-polar. Does it work?
Flicker (Kanye West Remix)
With the "Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1" soundtrack dropping next week on November 17th, the label decided to come through tonight and drop off another track from the project, with Kanye West reworking Lorde's "Flicker." Although Kanye doesn't have a verse or any vocal additions on this joint, he does flip the instrumental, by slowing it down and adding his Yeezy touch to the dark remix. In addition to this song, the soundtrack will also feature a record from Ariana Grande, as well as the much-anticipated collaboration from Pusha T, Q-Tip, HAIM, and Lorde.
Theophilus London Feat. Kanye West
When a snippet of Theophilus London's highly anticipated record with Kanye West surfaced the other month, it was quickly taken down. Now, a week before Theophilus' Vibes album is expected to arrive we get to hear the full version of the song thanks to a full album stream the rapper put out. The album is also executive produced by Kanye West.
The past week hasn't been going very smoothly for Tyga, as he just tweeted his frustrations with his label and claimed they were "holding [him] hostage." But it now seems as though his comments may have spurred a change, as "40 Mill," the hotly-anticipated single from his upcoming Gold Album, just dropped on iTunes.
Since winning over the hearts of the alt-rap crowd with his indie-leaning mixtapes like the Elvis Costello and Smiths-spoofing This Charming Mixtape back in the late '00s, Theophilus London has remained relatively quiet. That will change on October 27th, when the quirky rapper releases his sophomore album, Vibes, which was executive produced by Kanye West.
