Girl! Its Kendrick Lamar… as he hits us with an interview and live performance at the Illmore. Its always interesting to see the development of Kendrick Lamar… because I remember when the guy was just going by K. Dot. It has been an interesting journey for him and I am glad that he is getting all the respect he deserves.
Damn Waka yo done came up. Waka Flocka Flame performing at the illmore. The way they presented this whole illmore joint is dope… With the VHS recorder made me want to go out and co one just to bring back the nostalgic feeling of old home videos. But watch as The BSM member performs a few hits with G Easy.
Sossa 30o hits us with part II of his mini documentary series From rags to Riches. WE see Chief partying with his GBE gang and doing what they do best.. partying, drinking, smoking, and we can’t forget recording music. Keef is a fool and he actually is acting a fool on his Instagram account unfortunately But I still respect this kid’s grind.
Tyler let’s loose the official tracklist for his upcoming debut album Wolf which is due out on April 9th. At first I was not an Tyler the Creator fan but he has won me over with his witty line and asshole like attitude. Also the kid is funny as hell. Check out his parody of him getting the keys to the city in Boulder, Colorado.

Lil Wayne Links up with Titty Two Necklace for the official visual for his song “Rich as Fuck” off of his I Am not a Human Being II. This song rides without a doubt in my opinion it goes, and the video of course goes as well, even though I believe Wayne has been off lately; too much lean literally, he hit it right on the nail with this video.
Schoolboy Q hits us with a new track entilted “Yay Yay”. Which is fly in my opinion. the TDE representer glides over the boi-1da produced track. Look out for his debut album Oxymoron which comes out later this year.
The BTS look on the Young Jeezy hit feat. 2 Chainz “R.I.P” Watch as Jeezy puts the visual on this banger. Young Jeezy’s latest mixtape It’s Tha World (Es EL Mundo) download that below.
