Now this is a real #tbt. After years of collecting dust on T-Pain’s hard drive, fans finally get to hear the mythical Lil Wayne collaboration project appropriately titled T-Wayne. Recorded in 2009, the LP features T-Pain singing and trading bars with Wayne throughout the eight songs. If you can manage to put on your ’09 lenses, it’s clear that both these guys missed out on some easy money by not dropping this at the height of Wayne’s popularity. And considering the hashtags T-Pain included in his tweet, we can likely place the blame squarely on Birdman’s shoulders.

Stream the entire album below. While we’re at it, someone tell Juelz Santana to clear out his hard drive so we can hear I Can’t Feel My Face.



Sometimes, a left-field collaboration results in a home run. De La Soul and Usher come together for this beautiful track off De La’s forthcoming album and the Anonymous Nobody (August 26).


Late Monday evening, Nipsey Hussle keeps his “Marathon Mondays” intact with a new entry entitled “Picture Me Rollin.” With an obvious nod to the classic Tupac track, Nipsey also incorporates singing chrous vocals to compliment a mesmerizing but chill vibe. Sadly, this one is pretty short with one verse, which likely hints that there were time constraints to get this out today.

Production on this one is handled by Mike and Keys, Tariqbeats, and Rance 1500. Jake One also has co-production credit.


Joe Budden is going “Back to Back” with another Drake diss in “Wake.” On this round, Budden takes aim at Drake’s legitimacy as an emcee, alluding to the ghostwriting rumors around collaborators PartyNextDoor and Mike Zombie, and the OVO leader’s alleged trend-hopping antics regarding his work with Gucci Mane, Migos and Fetty Wap.

While it remains quiet on Drake’s side, Budden took it a step further with a condescending open letter posted on IG.

The MC’s tho kid, they’ll always be for the culture, we’ll support & champion you as you continue to push the needle and move the genre forward to newly discovered heights, real MC’s can never hate you, we’ll always want tomorrow to be better than yesterday, I see u as that “tomorrow”… I’m proud of that, for I know you’re 1 of us deep down, success never changes that, ask Em & Hov…. But the second your arrogance gets the better of you and you start to believe you’re above the very cloth you’re cut from, the cloth that changed life for your entire lineage, the MC’s will be there to remind you, success or not.



Blu and Nottz are in posse mode with “Giant Steps,” the second leak off their forthcoming EP Titans in the Flesh (July 15). As expected, all four emcees put in work on this one. Blu kicks it off with deft food wordplay, Bishop Lamont goes in on those who don’t uplift theirs hoods, and the Barrel Brothers bring it home with that NYC braggadocio. Of course, DJ Revolution lends his vintage scratching to the proceedings.


Matter and antimatter, the archrival/ Met, obliterating each other for survival… GZA

NASA has linked with Apple to promote the knowledge of space exploration through music. A group of artists, including the likes of Corinne Bailey Rae, Trent Reznor and Weezer, have been tasked with creating songs that celebrate interplanetary exploration. On the Hip-Hop side, GZA has taken the challenge and released a new storytelling track on the history of the universe entitled “The Spark.”

Produced by Paul Ryder (Happy Mondays) and Jesse Pritchett, the song coincides with NASA’s Juno mission arriving in Jupiter’s orbit on July 4. Β Stream and download “The Spark”.



We’re keeping it in a West Coast frame of mind this evening. The latest banger to leak off Game’s latest project (Streets of Compton) features AD and AV.
