Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Mary Lambert - Same Love

In light of Frank Ocean's recent "coming out," or I like to view it more as just, Frank once was in love with another dude. Either way, people have been talking about homophobia in hip hop, and the world, and etc. And considering that I think homophobia is gay as shit, I couldnt help but support this song. Macklemore on the raps. Ryan Lewis on the beat. Mary Lambert on the hook. The Heist is the album. October 9th is the date.

Mr. Womp Womp returns with another video off his Iron Chef project. If you slept on that project, you need to remedy that mistake stat.

Havoc - Same Shit, Different Day (Prodigy Diss)

The days of our life soap opera that is Havoc & Prodigy's very public divorce (yup) continues. Honestly this is better than what I thought it would be.

Slaughterhouse - Hammer Dance (El - P Remix)

This is exactly what I wanted to happen when EL Producto stepped out of his inner circle and started working with more "traditional" emcees. The results of dropping a MONSTER of an album with Mike Biga is now starting to be felt with this remix he did for the shady camp's Slaughterhouse. HEAT

Murs - Animal Style (Video)

Murs drops off a video for the last track on Love & Rockets Vol. 1. And he had this to say about it:
“Animal Style is a song I did for many reasons,” Murs explains. “The first was to be an advocate for people close to me who are out, and those who have yet to come out. It’s also a love song, which is nothing new for me. But with this one I wanted to challenge the listener to ask themselves: Is the love shared by two people of the same gender, really that different than the love I have for my partner of the opposite sex? And finally, I just felt it was crucial for some of us in the hip hop community to speak up on the issues of teen suicide, bullying, and the overall anti-homosexual sentiment that exist within hip hop culture. I felt so strongly about these issues and this song that I had to do a video that would command some attention, even if it makes some viewers uncomfortable. Even if it came at the cost of my own comfort.”

David Dallas - Pays Off (Video)

The man responsible for one of my favorite albums of last year gears up to drop another tape soon, entitled Falling Into Place. I dont know when its coming, other than "soon." But soon isn't soon enough.
