Fresh off his deal with Vice Records (Warner), the garlic gobbling gargantuan, Bronsolino, flushes out the first video single off the sequel to his last mixtape, Blue Chips.  Taking the role of an Albanian drug lord, commonly referred to as “The Symbol, Bronson takes Action in fighting off the po-9, dirty women, and his poker playing competition.  Move over Chuck Norris, the rapping Chef is here.

21-year old NY native, Bramzwig, breaks FNT soil with an emotional new track, “Young Gun”.  One of the most difficult things growing up is facing the unfortunate reality when we lose a close friend, a classmate, or a family member.  Bramzwig dedicates his newest record to two of his high school classmates that were lost within the last two months.

Kendrick is on cruise control right now.  Collecting 241,000 in week 1 album sales, he takes four minutes to reflect on GKMC and share some kind words for his peanut gallery.  In case you missed Shyne lash out against K. Dot on Twitter last week, I’ll sum it up for you.

Shyne tweets: “u caught up in the hype. That album is aight! Lyrics kool, beats trash! I mean trash!”  “Kendric Lamar has enormous potential! Gkmc is trash! Still!”

TDE label mate, ScHoolboy Q chimes in tweeting: “We all know @OriginalSHyne AIN’T EATIN!!!!! N*ggaH ain’t Had a Hot verse since 01″

Shyne responds by tweeting: “F%%# that tight jeans wear slut@kendricklamar emotional”

K.Dot speaks during interview: “It’s really no response [to him]. I’m not a sensitive guy, so that’s his opinion. Can’t stop what the world thinks, so yeah, that’s him.” K.Dot raps: “I pray to God this beat is good enough for Shyne, If not J. Cole your shit is trash, But at least my opinion just made everyone laugh”

Hey Shyne, ya m.A.A.d?

My dudes over at DML introduced me to L.A. radical rapper, David Sabastian.  He was first exposed to success with his video single, “P*ssy Marijuana”, which has racked up several hundred thousand views.  Newest single embraces last summer’s trend, “Plankin On My D!ck”, features fellow left coasters Mann and The Rej3ctz.  Cultivated by the ‘The Anti Society’, the self deemed “most Turnt Up fan base and alliance in L.A.”, this is not your typical “indie movement”.

Young fly Fort Lauderdale rapper, Hi-Rez, released his his 5th mixtape “Lost Time”. Arguably his darkest yet most inspiring project to date, Rez continues to progress with harder bars and improved vocal strength.  My personal favorite tape to date, including this gem of a track featuring Kinetics, below.

Newcomer D. Tucker shares some inner thoughts on the dreamy devil in the red dress. Third coming mixtape from Dwayne titled, Raising The Bar, late this quarter.

“The ideology of the track was to share the moment of when guys meets women in the club and these “Devilish / Vampier-vampire” like women flock around your table when you have bottles at the table but disappear when the sun comes up. ” – D. Tucker

New Earl.  Golfwang or die.


I was convinced Swizz Beatz would be in jail by now over the MegaUpload suit, but it appears he’s still free and well.  Recruiting Ludacris-Breezy for his latest club record, “Everyday Birthday”.
