Check out this interview Kanye West did a few days ago to promote his upcoming album and set all dirty laundry straight. Kanye touches up on his thought process for snatching the mic from Taylor Swift, disrespecting George Bush on national television, and how technology has let him elevate his music and bring more of it to the masses. Def set the record straight, and is eye opening.

Check out the second installment of Rihanna and Eminem's Love The Way You Lie being released on Rihanna's newest CD Loud coming this November. For those who think this will be some big follow up, sorry to dissapoint. The hook remains the same, and Em's mic time was cut. It's clear RiRi took the reigns on this one since it was her album but it definitely has a more upbeat sound. If there was a shining light on this track it would be that Em is absolutely bananas with his wordplay and follows up the first even harder. Download the joint right here:

Lupe swung by the Shade45 studios to visit DJ Tony Touch for an interview and dropped a freestyle for the people. I got to give it to Lupe because most emcees come on and do these radio interviews and always have a 16 (verse) prepared for a live "freestyle". This is obviously off the top. So hats off to Lupe who is dropping his Lasers album very soon. Check out the free right here:

In the spirit of Halloween, I'm releasing my second single off of my upcoming mixtape Late Nights on Mars. In Miami Horror (Produced by Killabits & Love Thy Brother) expect a lyrical nightmare combined with a hard dubstep beat. This ish will rage hard on the electronic scene and is definitely unlike anything I've done before. Always love jumping into a new sound, and this will be a great bang on this heavy loaded mixtape coming soon.

One of the newest up and comers this year is J. Cole. This young emcee hailing from North Carolina has been rising on the hip hop scene this passed year and have even raised the head of Jay-Z who featured him on the Blueprint III (A Star is Born). Hov also had J.Cole open for him at Yankee Stadium during his joint concert with Eminem earlier this past September. Here's his latest joint "I'm Coming Home". Definitely hop out of bed and keep ya ear to the ground for this kid.

The latest GOOD Friday release features Curtis Mayfield, Pete Rock, Jay-Z, Kid Cudi & Charlie Wilson. A smooth-vibed cool joint. I might be more impressed with Ye's weekly drops than the efforts i hear for his upcoming album "My Dark Beautiful Twisted Fantasy". My input on the matter is this, Kanye has a true love for hip hop, the classic old school flavor that crafts him as a lyricist. Then there is the artsy side to Kanye, where he may not be the most lyrical but he packs so much emotional passion in what he is saying, it doesnt matter. Expect his new album to be more indie sounding than ever before. Personally he should release a second album titled "Good Friday" to come along free with the purchase of his CD, but hey what do i know...im just a dope emcee, with a bachelor degree with more opinions than a jewish mother.

Well, the talks of this collabo happened only a few days ago and the internet buzz has been increasing by the hour. Nicki Minaj, who is all set to release her debut album Pink Friday has received one of the biggest honors in hip hop...an Eminem feature. Although this collab is one of the more stranger mixes of talent, both artists tend to have an alter-ego wild side and both of them are expressed here. In the single "Roman's Revenge" expect some crazy word play from both emcees, with a back and forth approach similar to Em & Dre in "Guilty Conscience" (Slim Shady LP). The song is good, not great...but they both did their thing. The hook actual channels some inner "scenario" paying homage to Busta (Rhymes) for his classic verse on the Tribe Called Quest smash. Pink Friday is set to be released on Nov 22nd along with heavyweights Kanye, Rihanna, Ne-Yo, among others.
