Ab-Soul Disses Jay Electronica For Kendrick Lamar On ‘RAW (backwards)’

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 3:35 PM

electronica-ab-soulEarlier this year, elusive emcee Jay Electronica got sloppy off something and tried to son Kendrick Lamar during a slurred speech periscope session.

“You could pay Kendrick a million dollars. Kendrick would tell you his self he couldn’t body me, Kendrick is my son, Kendrick is my baby, Kendrick wishes he could be me,” Jay said.

Ab-Soul remembered that, and on his new Do What Thou Wilt album he disses Jay for his TDE homie on the very first track, ‘RAW (backwards.)

I was like a swami of Jay Electronica until he
Figured Dizzle wouldn’t admit that he would body him for a milli
I told Kenny keep quiet, I’ma get him
We don’t need dirt on your hands getting the key to the city ya feel me
Hurts when your OG, who is supposed to be a G-O-D
Is standing next to King Kunta feeling like Toby

If that sounds familiar, it’s because it’s almost exactly the same bars as Ab spit at Electronica in a Steez Day freestyle.

Jay had actually apologized to Kendrick for the insult, but it looks like TDE doesn’t forgive.

jay-apology

Maybe Electronica can revisit it all when (and if) he puts out that album.

Lil Yachty Lands On Front Page Of The NY Times Style Section

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 2:55 PM

yachty-times

New York Times

The rap game is pretty skeptical of Lil Yachty.

But the mainstream is lapping him up.

The young boat has already scored a national Sprite ad with Lebron James, and now the 19 year old is repping the culture on the front page of the New York Times style section.

lil-yachty-times

In the article, Yachty repeats something that he’s said before: he views himself as a brand, rather than a rapper.

“I always knew I was going to be something,” Boat says. “I’m not a rapper, I’m an artist. And I’m more than an artist, I’m a brand.”

Judging by what he’s achieved so far, you gotta admit he is more of a brand than he is a rapper.

22 Savage Comes For 21 Savage With ‘Black Opps’

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 1:55 PM

22 savage 21 savage21 Savage has been up in Tyga’s grill about Kylie Jenner.

But Savage has his own issues with 22 Savage, who’s trying to steal his whole persona, not just his girl.

22’s latest 21 bait is the track ‘Black Opps’, which uses the beat and more of 21’s hit ‘Red Opps’.

Check out both songs below.

“I just felt like jacking him,” 22 Savage said of his persona robbery. “I’m really a savage out here. I’m really in the slums. What people don’t understand is that underneath this funny, it’s really real. We’re in the streets. I’m a street nigga trying to make it out anyway I can.”

Judging by their two “opps” tracks, which one’s the real Savage?

Vinylz & Boi-1da On Why J. Cole’s ‘Deja Vu’ & Bryson Tiller’s ‘Exchange’ Sound The Same

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 10:55 AM

cole-tillerAfter giving J. Cole’s new album 4 Your Eyez Only a listen, people started noticing something odd: The beat on ‘Deja Vu’ sounds the same as the one on the Bryson Tiller track ‘Exchange.’

So did the song’s producers, Boi-1da & Vinylz, swipe the beat from Tiller and his team?

Actually, according to Boi-1da & Vinylz, the exact opposite happened.

In a series of Twitter exchanges the producers accuse The Mekanics producer Foreign Teck of stealing their beat, and then getting it out before they did.

For his part, Foreign Teck denies Vinylz’ account of what happened.

Here are the two tracks in question:

Soulja Boy On The Meaning of Superman That Hoe & The Money He Made Off ‘Crank That’

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 9:55 AM

soulja-boy-igSoulja Boy wasn’t always an Internet joke. In fact, he was once a legit World Wide Web pioneer.

When he was 17, he broke the Internet (before that was a thing) with his2007 hit ‘Crank That.’

‘Crank That’ went on to be the first single to ever sell more than 3 million digital copies.

He talked about those crazy, money making times with Vlad TV, and explained what the song’s signature phrase — Superman Dat Hoe — means.

According to Soulja, he made eight million on ‘Crank Dat’. While he’s prone to extreme financial exaggeration, we’re going to more or less buy that figure.

He also reiterated that “superman that hoe” does not mean “when you ejaculate on a girls back then put a blanket on her so when she stands up the blanket sticks therefore making her look like she has a cape,” as the Urban Dictionary alleges.

That was the white people’s interpretation, according to Soulja. Instead, Supermaning that hoe was essentially executing a certain dance move, and it had nothing to do with a girl at all.

Charles Hamilton’s New Album ‘Hamilton Charles’ Available For Streaming

Bipolar disorder, substance abuse and public scrutiny after being sucker-punched by his girlfriend online.

Those are just some of the things that Charles Hamilton has faced over the years, but he’s been able to bounce back and triumph with a brand new album.

The project is called Hamilton, Charles, and it’s a 12-song offering with titles like “Oh Well,” “Everyone,” and “Be With You.” It’s also a follow-up to the rapper’s 2015  EP The Black Box.

Perhaps surprisingly, the new album doesn’t contain any features, and on it Hamilton speaks frankly about some of the issues he’s faced.

“I made that decision a while ago,” the Harlem spitter explained during an interview with Pigeons & Planes.

“I’m not gonna hide anything. I don’t feel like I have anything to hide, so now that I’m impacting the mainstream, I might as well continue on that path. With good music comes a lot of pain, so I guess I want people to accept and respect what I’m offering. Hopefully, they can learn from it,” added Charles.

You can stream his new LP below.

Ab Soul Drops ‘Do What Thou Wilt’ Album & Twitter Says It’s Better Than J. Cole’s

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 9:01 AM

Instagram

Ab Soul released his fourth studio album Do What Thou Wilt late last night, and Twitter practically exploded with positive reviews of it.

DWTW could be considered a come-back album for the Cali rapper, since a lot of folks said they were disappointed with his previous release Last Days.

This time, however, fans seem to love the new LP, and some say it’s better than J. Cole’s 4 Your Eyez Only, which dropped yesterday as well.

“Ab-Soul’s album is 100 percent greater than Cole’s album,” someone wrote. “That new @abdashsoul is absolutely flames. Album of the year, hands down. Haven’t heard that kind of rap in so long,” wrote another.

Soulo’s new LP comes several months after he expressed frustration at his record label Top Dawg Entertainment and said he was tired of being put on the back burner, compared to other artists on the roster.

“This bench is gettin’ warm as fucc,” he wrote in February.

Yesterday, Ab talked about that tweet when he stopped by Hot 97, and he also discussed the public perception that he slacks off in between albums and doesn’t record fast enough.

“I just want the people to know that I work,” he said. “I be in the studio 24/8, coming up with ideas, bro and even two years removed don’t think that I was sleep. I think the team has given me all the support they can, but I just want the people to know I’m at work … And that’s the reason for the gap.”

You can check out some more Twitter reactions of Ab’s new album below.

‘Chance The Dropout’ Brings Together Chance The Rapper & Kanye West

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 1:25 PM

chance-the-dropoutThe two most acclaimed Chicago artists of their respective generations come together in the DJ Critical Hype and DJ Clyde 23 track blend tape Chance The Dropout.

Check it, from Datpiff.

The mixtape features Chance’s vocals over ‘Ye’s classic production.

“I love Chance as an artist and Kanye is one of the best producers of all time,” Critical Hype tells Pigeons & Planes. “They are both from Chicago and Chance is always talking about how big of an influence Kanye was and is. It seemed like a match made in heaven and a great way to bridge the gap of a new and older Chicago artist. When I started to play around with the idea it sounded even better than I had thought.”

Shigeru Miyamoto, who created the iconic Nintendo game, took a crack at playing that theme last night on Jimmy Fallon, with The Roots landing their helping hands.

Miyamoto proved he’s also apt at the acoustic guitar, and he doesn’t let Fallon’s thematic walk through knock him off of his game.

The Tracklist To Kanye West’s ‘Turbo Grafx 16’ Seems To Have Leaked

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 12:11 PM

kanye-turbo-1There’s been a bunch of Kanye West news today, and for the first time in a while it involves music.

Right after learning ‘Ye has built a temporary studio in his Bel-Air mansion so he can record while recovering from his mental breakdown, it appears we may have caught a glimpse of the tracklist for his Turbo Grafx 16 project.

Turbo Gra
fx was supposed to be his follow up to The Life Of Pablo and was supposed to drop in 2016. That seems unlikely, but producer Pete Rock seems to have revealed its contents.

After writing that he was “playing 45s in da lab with Kanye West” Rock posted an IG video that displayed a tracklist that is in a similar style to the first TLOP tracklist we saw.

Here are the songs:

1. Metroid Other
2. Muramasa the Demon Blade
3. New Super Mario Bros
4. No More Heroes 2

5. Okami
6. Pikmin 2
7. Rabbids Go Home
8. Red Steel 2

9. Resident Evil
10. Silent Hill
11. Sin & Punishment 2
12. Sonic Colors

13. Super Mario Galaxy Pt. 1 & Pt. 2
14. Tatsunoko vs. Capcom

Pete Rock has been retweeting articles about the reveal, suggesting it’s legit.

Is Kanye Working On His Next Classic Album?

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 10:31 AM

kanye-5150Misery inspires art.

Kanye West is a great example of this, as his classic albums My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and 808s and Heartbreaks come from pretty dark places.

‘Ye’s in a bad spot again: He was just released from the hospital for a mental breakdown, and there are reports his wife Kim Kardashian is planning on divorcing him and taking the kids. (That rumor has been denied, but they do seem to be living apart.)

However he still has his music, and TMZ reports Kanye has built a temporary studio in his Bel-Air mansion so he is able to record while recovering from his breakdown.

Their sources say he’s been on a productive run, and may get an album of material out of it.

Stay tuned.

According To iTunes, J. Cole Is A New Dad

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 9:50 AM

j-cole-lettermanJ. Cole’s a famously private man, who secretly married his longtime girlfriend.

So when he became a dad, we certainly didn’t expect him stream the birth on Snapchat, like one DJ Khaled recently did.

However his journey into fatherhood was revealed in an amusing way: He (or somebody) put the news in the iTunes’ review of his yet to be released album 4 Your Eyez Only.

itunes-review

“The two-part suite ‘She’s Mine’ may be the most important song he’s written, as Cole hovers over his daughter & finds himself overcome by a strange feeling: hope,” the review reads.

So congrats to Cole on his new daughter.

4 Your Eyez Only should drop sometime around midnight tonight.

Young Thug Gets Blasted By Twitter For Insulting Airline Staff In Video

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 9:10 AM

thug-airline
Young Thug probably thought throwing a lot of cash around and letting a couple of airline workers know that he’s a big star would get him some praise.

But instead he is getting blasted for it.

Yesterday, TMZ shared a video of Thugger yelling at two women who work for Alaska Airlines and accused them of trying to make him miss his flight.

At one point in the clip, the Barter 6 rapper pulled a bunch of cash from a Bentley bag and taunted the women with it, before telling the camera that he’s “Bigger than the law.”

“These two ants are so rude and peasants,” said Thug, pointing at the two ladies. “They say their manager on the way. I don’t want to talk to the manager. Ya’ll manager a peasant. Ya’ll ants.  I’ll give ya’ll bum ass hoes $15,000 a piece to quit your job.”

From there, the Rich Gang rapper said the women had nappy hair and looked like they were deported from Africa. Evidently, the folks on Twitter didn’t appreciate Thug’s behavior, and they quickly let him know about it.

“Young Thug, I love you, but you are so fuckin’ petty for that shit,” one person wrote.

“Young Thug should be ashamed of hisself,” wrote another. “Prime example of putting down your people. Him bringing up her being from Africa and her hair.”

The Atlanta spitter ended up missing the flight and had to cancel a scheduled performance in Seattle. But that didn’t get him off the hook with those he offended.

Floyd Mayweather Really Wants To Fight Conor McGregor

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 6:13 PM

conor-floydIt turns out Floyd Mayweather very much wants to fight Conor McGregor — who’s made it quite clear he wants to take Money on.

How do we know?

50 Cent.

Fif ran into Dana White at dinner last month, and told the UFC head honcho that his on-and-again off-again pal Floyd would very much like to get in the ring with Conor.

“I was at dinner in New York for [UFC] 205, and we bumped into each other at dinner. So we were hanging out, we were talking,” White told Fox Sports Live. “Then I went over and sat back at my table and I ate. And then when we were leaving, he said to me, ‘When’s your boy gonna fight Floyd?’ And I said, ‘My boy? Who are you talking about, Conor?’ And he said, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘Floyd don’t want to fight Conor.’ And he goes, ‘He does, Dana. He’s dead serious about it.’ And I said, ‘I don’t know, man. Call Floyd and see what’s going on.’ So that’s how the whole thing got started up again.”

White went on to say he didn’t think it was going to happen. And there was no specification to what ring they would meet in, although McGregor has claimed he would be willing to go boxing rules.

Go to about the three minute mark to hear White on 50, Floyd and Conor.

Big Boi Clears Up Gucci Mane’s Comments About Working On Outkast Album

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 4:32 PM

gucci-outkast

Instagram

Gucci got all the Outkast fans hype when he said this back in September on Snapchat:

“I just did a record for OutKast,” he claimed, beginning a list of artist he had done features for. “I just did a record for Wayne, I just did a record for Boosie, I just did a record for Project Pat, I just did a record for E-40.”

Everyone can calm down now.

In an interview with Creative Loafing Tampa Bay, Big Boi clarified that the Gucci verse in question is for his solo album, and that Guwop had jumped the gun on Snapchat and attributed it to Outkast because he was excited.

“Gucci is on this album, most definitely,” Big Boi said. “He was just excited because the song was jammin’ like a motherfucker.”

So it would seem like the denial a rep for Andre 3000 put out right after Guwop’s Snap is accurate.

Although a “surprise” Outkast album would still make sense if they could pull it off…

Drake Tops Apple’s Album and Singles List For 2016

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 3:27 PM

drake-views-happyDrake doesn’t just dominate Spotify. He also runs Apple.

Drake’s album Views was  the most streamed and downloaded album on iTunes and Apple Music in 2016, and his hit ‘One Dance’ was the most streamed and downloaded single.

On the albums list, Drake was followed by Rihanna’s Anti, Adele’s 25, Frank Ocean’s Blonde and Justin Bieber’s Purpose, in that order.

The top five singles were ‘One Dance’, Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ Rihanna’s ‘Work,’ Flo Rida’s ‘My House’ and Lukas Graham’s ‘7 Years.’

Artists who debuted their albums on Apple, like Drake and Ocean did, had an obvious advantage on this list.

Although in Drake’s case he was also streamed a record 4.7 billion times on Spotify, so his Apple #’s seem legit.

He has discussed finding the experience of giving so much material to his fellow Canadian emotionally draining

“I gave up almost half of my album,” he said. “It’s hard. I will always be thankful—if it wasn’t for the light he shined on me, who knows where I’d be. And everything happens for a reason. You never know what I would say if this success wasn’t in front of me now.”

While the Weeknd was featured on the Take Care track ‘Crew Love’, he originally had another verse on the track that was cut for Drake’s verse.

That lost verse has surfaced, check it below.

Here’s the final version.

Kim Kardashian Wants To Divorce Kanye And Take The Kids

kanye west KimWell, this isn’t going to be good for ‘Ye’s fragile mental state.

US Weekly is reporting that Kim Kardashian is building a case to divorce Kanye West after 2 and half years of marriage, and gain full custody of their two children.

“It will take some time before she can do anything,” claims the friend, alleging that she’s trying to build a case for full custody of kids North, 3, and Saint, 12 months, “but she doesn’t want to stay married.”

West and Kardashian have been reportedly living apart since Kanye was released from the hospital.

Do you think losing the Kardashian could eventually spark a creative revival in ‘Ye?
