Well, here it is...the very anticipated Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager has finally been released on the net and you can be one of the firsts to get a listen. In Cudder's sophomore release expect the same melodic tone as his first but with some more credible features, a little darker creative input and drug-filled story line. Sadly, Common does not narrate the tale as he does in Cudi's previous effort.

Alright now I'm not a big fan of posting ridiculous videos but i couldnt resist this one. Hollywoods newest rising singer, Willow Smith's (9 Year old daughter of Will & Jada) joint Whip My Hair is an absolute banger but combined with the dance skills of this parrot, make it all the more reason to watch it again and again...

If you been living under a rock lately you should be informed that kanye has been releasing a free joint every Friday for the past month or so (find them @ http://kanyewest.com/). Here is the latest titled "Don't Stop" featuring his CRS (Child Rebel Soldiers) castmates Pharell & Lupe Fiasco. This group surfaced about two years ago with their joint "US Placers" but faded away soon after while chasing solo careers. It was very dope to catch them on this weeks G.O.O.D. Friday.

Nas is planning for a new release but Def Jam on the other hand...is not. Nas, who will go down in hip hop history as one of the greatest to ever graze a mic, is not feeling the love from his Def Jam label and released a letter to them earlier today. Nas had this to say:
To: LA Reid, Steve Bartels, Steve Gawley, Michael Seltzer, Joseph Borrino, Chris Hicks
Subject: PUT MY S*** OUT!
Peace to all,
With all do respect to you all, Nas is NOBODY’s slave. This is not the 1800′s, respect me and I will respect you.
I won’t even tap dance around in an email, I will get right into it. People connect to the Artist @ the end of the day, they don’t connect with the executives. Honestly, nobody even cares what label puts out a great record, they care about who recorded it. Yet time and time again its the executives who always stand in the way of a creative artist’s dream and aspirations. You don’t help draw the truth from my deepest and most inner soul, you don’t even do a great job @ selling it. The #1 problem with DEF JAM is pretty simple and obvious, the executives think they are the stars. You aren’t…. not even close. As a matter of fact, you wish you were, but it didn’t work out so you took a desk job. To the consumer, I COME FIRST. Stop trying to deprive them! I have a fan base that dies for my music and a RAP label that doesn’t understand RAP. Pretty f***** up situation
This isn’t the 90′s though. Beefing with record labels is so 15 years ago. @ this point I just need you all to be very clear where I stand and how I feel about “my label.” I could go on twitter or hot 97 tomorrow and get 100,000 protesters @ your building but I choose to walk my own path my own way because since day one I have been my own man. I did business with Tommy Mottola and Donnie Einer, two of the most psycho dudes this business ever created. I worked well with them for one major reason……. they believed in me. The didn’t give a f*** about what any radio station or magazine said….those dudes had me.
Lost Tapes is a movement and a very important set up piece for my career as it stands. I started this over 5 years ago @ Columbia and nobody knew what it was or what it did but the label put it out as an LP and the fans went crazy for it and I single handlely built a new brand of rap albums. It’s smart and after 5 years it’s still a head of the game. This feels great and you not feeling what I’m feeling is disturbing. Don’t get in the way of my creativity. We are aligned with the stars here, this is a movement. There is a thing called KARMA that comes to haunt you when you tamper with the aligning stars. WE ARE GIVING THE PEOPLE EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT. Stop throwing dog s*** on a MAGICAL moment.
You don’t get another Nas recording that doesn’t count against my deal….PERIOD! Keep your b******* $200,000.00 fund. Open the REAL budget. This is a New York pioneers ALBUM, there ain’t many of us. I am ready to drop in the 4th quarter. You don’t even have s*** coming out! Stop being your own worst enemy. Let’s get money!
First Lupe, now NAS. What is hip hop coming to when the successful dope artists can't even get the support of the people who believe in them from the start. Hopefully they will submit to Nas's demands like Atlantic did with Lupe.
A few days ago I posted about how Lupe Fiasco's latest CD Lasers has been on tight lock from his label Atlantic Records. Lupe took to his twitter and it seems they have finally reached agreement just days before a Pro-Lupe protest was set to bombard entrance of Atlantic Records in NYC. The release date for Lasers will be delivered prior to the October 15th deadline. Justice has been served for Lupe, but if he does plan on a forth quarter drop, he'll be competing with the likes of Kanye, Kid Cudi, Nicki Minaj, Lloyd Banks, Ne-Yo, Akon & Flo Rida.
Jesse Eisenberg (Adventureland, Zombieland) did a phenominal job recreating Mark Zuckerberg's vision in which changed not only our generation but how people interact indefinitely. I do feel the movie could have been a little longer, but I guess a movie does its job when it leaves you wanting more. The script was sophisticated, which at times could be intimidating to your intelligence. Regardless it is an obvious candidate for oscar gold. If you still haven't checked out this film, definitely make the investment.
Check out the latest single "Start it Up" off Lloyd Bank's upcoming Hunger for More 2 featuring Fabolos, Kanye West, Swizz Beatz & Ryan Leslie.

Ya know it is a sad business we are apart of... The music business is ugly, and regardless of how intelligent or talented you may be, they will always look to chew you up and spit you out. Lupe Fiasco, is one of these gentleman in the game who I consider a top 10 artist (lyrically). Atlantic has done nothing but hold him back as an artist ever since he sprung on the scene. I guess getting co-signed by Kanye is not enough anymore. But check out Lupe as he tries to explain to his fans the problems he is having with his label, and why his latest album is being held back harder than the NY Giants offensive line.
Check out the first release off of "Late NIghts on Mars" featuring one of the dopest emcees ive had the pleasure of recording with, Res. Produced by Sean Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra. The track is simple people, sometimes in life we feel maybe all the hard work we put into something is just never enough. This track comes to terms with that but still finds a way to fight for what they love. Listen & Download right here:
