Some Unreleased 2Pac

2_pac_8
I’m not sure I even believe myself here. Is this ‘unreleased’ 2Pac, or is it new 2Pac? I’ve never really come to a conclusion on the ‘is he or isn’t he dead?’ issue, but either way enjoy some music from one of the all-time greats below.

mickeyfactz
So, as I said, it’s been a slow day.

Hopefully, this will introduce you something new. Go crazy after the click.

Kanye West Live

kanye
Been a slow 24 hours for new music. To fill the void, see below for an amazing 40-minute video of a Kanye West performance. For those of you who haven’t seen him live, I’d recommend this video. For those of you who have, this is a brand new setup and also incorporates the 808s and Heartbreak album so is worth a watch. The video has some behind-the-scenes clips, and other bits and pieces. Enjoy after the click.

Maxwell: A Review of A Potential Classic

Maxwell-BLACKsummersnight
Are you sick of  “explicit, AutoTune-coated R&B”? Do you miss organic music made using real instruments and a voice?

You’re not the only one. For once, those who shape the charts have done some good, and Maxwell’s first release since 2001 (8 years is a LONG time in music!) went straight to #1 in the USA.

Whether you’ve heard of Maxwell or not, click below, if only for the sake of good music and broadening your horizons.

There’s an album review coming tomorrow too from one of the best Soul/R&B albums I’ve ever heard. Keep an eye out for it, as I promise it will be a good read!

Big Sean’s Debut

big-sean-octane1
As you should know by now, I rate Big Sean very highly. I think he’s definitely one of the better rappers around, and his lyrics never seem to disappoint, and always entertain and surprise me in some way. He’s finally dropped a music video (his first ever!) and it’s great to see him get some camera time.

Didn’t See This Coming

kid-cudi
N.O.R.E., best known for his early 00′s hit Nothin’, has recently collaborated with Kid Cudi. This is definitely an unlikely duo, but the track is decent. It’s nothing mind-blowing, but it’s definitely likeable and will probably grow on me. Download it here:

The Game

 

Following on from The Game’s recent disses towards Jay-Z (which you can download from here) I’ve compiled a list of the best diss tracks ever released from the renowned battle rapper, with a brief summary of each ‘beef’.
