hot97 summer jam

Earlier today, Hot 97 revealed the eagerly anticipated lineup for the 2013 Summer Jam. Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, Wu-Tang Clan (in full force!), A$AP Rocky, Wale, French Montana, Miguel, Chris Brown, Fabolous and Joe Budden have all been confirmed to play the Main Stage this year. I know what you’re thinking: no Drake, no Kanye, no Jay, no FUTURE VANDROSS? Let’s hope Hot 97 still have a few surprises stuffed up their sleeve.

 

The 2013 Summer Jam takes place Sunday, June 2 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Tickets are available here.

Fabolous and Pusha T are set to embark on their Life Is So Exciting tour later this month. But in the meantime, the slick-talking pair lend guest verses to Red Cafe‘s new one, “Boss Bxtches & Fast Cars.” It’s off his upcoming American Psycho II mixtape, which should be his last free project before his long, long-delayed debut album, Shakedown, hits the streets in September.

HeroesAndSuperVillains_500

Given the turkeys we all feasted upon this past week, it’s only right that this week’s post rant shows a little gratitude to the things us hip-hop heads often overlook. We’re thankful for Danny Brown’s stories (this one is just the best); the decline of “YOLO” (thank God); SoundCloud, Audio Mack and other good quality music sharing sites which keeps this engine we call music running; independent talents-turned-mega music superstars like Kendrick Lamar and Frank Ocean; and the frequency of old school legends teaming up with some of the new school’s finest. Just take our first pick of this week’s best-releases-you-might-have-missed after the jump. Shouts to Rah Digga, The Game, Fabolous, Captain Murphy, Jabee and more.

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.

  2. CJ Fly (feat. A La $oul & Phife Dawg) – “Seek Well”

  4. Danny Brown (feat. Scrufizzer) – “Dubstep”
