I Got That Flame

This video is fire... no pun intended. Check out the first video released from the young but very talented Roc Nation rapper, J. Cole.

And if you missed the track the first time around, here it is once again.

Studio Magic

Here is a view of Asher Roth and Pharrell getting to work in the studio to finish up a track off his upcoming sophomore album, The Spaghetti Tree.

We have already seen what Ash can do with Pharrell on the boards before. On The Greenhouse Effect mixtape, he went in over The Clipse's Neptune-produced track, Mr. Me Too. Check out the track and the video below.

Kush and Orange Juice Be The Component

This summer is slated for some major album releases including Eminem's Recovery, Drake's Thank Me Later, and Rick Ross's Teflon Don. The list goes on. For me, though, I would say that this summer is all about the mixtape. There is just so much good music that artists release for the fans through their mixtapes, and a lot of times it gets looked over.

My favorite so far is the newest release from my man, Wiz Khalifa, and it will be one mixtape I know I will be bumping all summer long. This young rapper has come a long way from Say Yeah, and his flow has only gotten smoother. His newest mixtape Kush & Orange Juice is a great play, essentially from start to finish.

The mixtape has little bit for everyone. Every beat has it's own original, cool feel, and a few tracks feature some great samples. You can cop it below, and check out a few little videos he created for a couple of the tracks. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

"Yo ATL, I know you haven't heard anything like this in a minute."

Donnis shouts out his home town in the intro on one of his new tracks. On the track he goes over OutKast's Aquemini, and he flows impressively, incorporating this old school, synthed up Atlanta joint. Enjoy this until the release of his next mixtapes, The Invitation and Fashionably Late, which includes one of his old bangers, Gone.

I'm the Coolest Kid That You Seen Thus Far

The Cool Kids are one of my favorite Hip Hop groups around, and while I'm still waiting on their upcoming album When Fish Ride Bicycles, it's been a while since they've released some new music. Yesterday, I'm pretty sure they surprised everyone when they said they had a new mixtape dropping on Memorial Day. Well, ladies and gentlemen, thanks to the good people at illroots.com and the LA Leakers, I present to you the newest addition to The Kids' catalogue, Tacklebox.
