You never know where Kung Fu Kenny is going to end up these days. Still basking in the acclaim of his DAMN project, Kendrick hops on Future’s “Mask Off” for a reflective verse. Expect this feauture to be a bit polarizing as it’s a marked departure from the original’s tone with inflections that are at times reminiscent of Bone Thugs. Content-wise, he takes a surreal attitude at his success.

Gotta look at self and ask what happened

How y’all let a conscious nigga go commercial while only making conscious albums

How y’all let the braids on TV

How y’all let the hood at the table

Now y’all don’t even know how to rate him…

Check it out and drop your thoughts.

NY is out in full force to rep for Phresher and Remy Ma in the new visuals for “Wait a Minute (Remix).” Cameos include Young M.A, Papoose and Uncle Murda. Take note of Remy’s vicious guest verse.


Continuing her remix trend, Nicki Minaj offers her interpretation of the Rae Sremmurd hit single “Black Beatles.” Like the original, Nicki mixes singing and rhyming, but is more aggressive in going any anonymous adversaries (even dropping the obligatory “these bitches are my sons” line). Don’t be surprised if Nicki drops a sudden project in the coming months.


On the surface, you might be surprised by the remix lineup for “Black America Again” that features Gucci Mane and Pusha T. But think about it — who better to give a street view of the devastation of black mass incarceration, drug abuse and police targeting of black men than Gucci and Pusha T?

Both do an excellent job of conveying their stances. Gucci showcases a nimble flow as he speaks on his growth from trap star to potential revolutionary. And Pusha gives nice ode to Slick Rick by adopting his “Hey Young World” flow.


What should a great piece of art do above all else? Inspire more great art. Solange is still basking in the glow of achieving her first #1 album with A Seat At The Table. Much attention has been paid to the project’s powerful song “Cranes In the Sky.” Today, the track inspired Common to add his own verse for this unofficial remix.

“Every once and a few years, there are certain songs that come out and have the sound of forever. “Cranes in the Sky” is that song for me,” Common told FADER. “Every time I listened to it, I keep wanting to hear it again and again. I started mumbling some words to it and then decided I want to write a verse. This is an un official remix simply inspired by the love of art. Check it out.”


OVO Radio keeps the exclusives coming tonight with a remix to French Montana’s standout gem “Lockjaw.” This song has one of those beats where you’d have to be flat out terrible not to sound good over. Out of this trio, Gucci Mane wins best verse honors.


Meek Mill and Fabolous are the latest emcees to add their 2 cents to the Fat Joe/Remy Ma scorcher “All the Way Up.” Meek’s energy works great here and he still has bars for Drake one year later:

This is hip-hop, you ain’t write it don’t record it/I don’t know how they getting down across the border.”

Views from the projects, nigga I’m the prospect

I was on the block when you was a sneakerhead”

When the internet told me I’m crucified, they was in the streets, like Nigga you Super Live!

And we all know Fab comes with it when it comes to freestyles over hot beats. I have to give these two the advantage over Jay’s version.
