T.I. FT. VICTORIA MONET – STAY

After T.I. released his first official single for his forthcoming album Paperwork, (About the Money” ft. Yung Thug and “No Mediocre” ft. Iggy Azalea) he’s had a quite interesting buzz. Today T.I. releases a new record title “Stay” featuring Victoria Monet.  I’m not quite sure if this song will make the cut for his forthcoming album, or if T.I. was just giving away free music to his fans.

TINASHE FT. SCHOOLBOY Q – 2 ON (BOEBOE REMIX)

So, there’s no denying DJ Mustard’s beat for this original tune was on point. Because, c’mon, it’s DJ Mustard and he’s running the game right now. But, let’s face it, anything can be remixed.

BOB MARLEY- JAMMIN’ (KUNGS REMIX)

At only 17 years old, the French dj, Kungs, certainly has a lot more material on the way, but this remix of Bob Marley’s timeless groove Jammin’is easily his best to date. I’m always skeptical when artists try to re-work what is already perfection, but the track itself is more of a subtle touch up than a remix, and the new beat simply brings an catchy twist to Marley’s classic vocals. Happy…

KANYE WEST – GOOD LIFE (SEVNTHWONDER REMIX)

Boston Producer SevnthWonder has just released a new remix of Kanye West’s “Good Life.” SevnthWonder takes this track, slows it down, and shows you the true meaning of “Future R&B.” With Kanye’s lyrics slowed down, it is almost hard to recognize that it is still him.

Raury is a 17 year old singer/rapper/songwriter/guitarist from Atlanta. He just released a new track called “The Cigarette Song.” Wait a second…isn’t he only 17? Anyways, we’ll let that slide, because Raury is obviously one cool kid. Growing up in the Atlanta Trap scene, he sought to create a sound that is all his own. With a indie feel and a hip hop steez, Raury does just that. His newest track…
