Jadakiss makes his latest case for legendary status when he drops Top 5 Dead or Alive on November 20. With a title like that, the album can’t be anything short of greatness. Listen to his new drops with Future (“You Can See Me”), Nipsey Hussle and Ne-Yo (“Ain’t Nuthin New”) to see if he’s on the right track.

Attention fellas — this is what your woman and her homegirls get into when you’re not around. Beyonce has been full of surprises with her self-titled album and continues that trend by dropping a video for “7/11” without warning. Now there are a few of us lucky guys that have a special lady with no inhibitions. We can count Jay among that group — why else would Bey be wearing kneepads?


Grating chorus vocals aside, The Roots come through with a visually strong clip for “Never,” off their new album and then you shoot your cousin. Before you can find happiness, you have to first stop running and face your demons. You can purchase the album HERE.


For the new salvo off his What Goes Around project, Statik Selektah comes with a jazzy sample and a few vocals from AZ’s seminal Illmatic verse. Joey Bada$$ and Freddie Gibbs are right at home over this vintage boom bap. What Goes Around is set to drop on August 19 on Showoff/Duck Down Music. You can download the single HERE.


With a nifty and of course soulful loop of Jon B.’s “They Don’t Know,” Terrance Martin and 9th Wonder link for a beautiful instrumental capped by some searing saxophone work. Verses would have been welcomed, but weren’t necessary. Martin’s latest album, 3ChordFold Pulse, drops on May 20 and can be pre-ordered HERE.


Jay Dee/J Dilla continues to live on through his old crew courtesy of “Yes Yes,” the lead single off Slum Village’sVintage EP. The four-track project will have additional production from Dilla and Young RJ while serving as a “prequel” for a full-length LP named YES, which drops in the summer. The YES album will feature guest spots from De La Soul, Bilal, Chance the Rapper, Jon Connor and Phife.

You can purchase “Yes Yes” HERE.
