LISTEN: Lupe Fiasco – “The Show Goes On”

We have all been patiently awaiting Lupe’s  album Lasers for well..almost 3 years now. The album release date had been pushed back numerous times by the record label and has finally been solidified as March 8, 2011. Why the long wait? Maybe it is due to record labels’ obsession with hit songs, if you don’t have one your album is not being released. Digital Music News, in a recent article, quoted Lupe from a Dayton, OH show saying the following about the album making process:

 “The record company sent me a song and said, ‘Lupe we need a number one smash, and this is a number one smash,’ and they sent a track and the hook, and they sent me seven of those,”

“It’s so ridiculous that when I recorded the verses and sent it back to them, they called me back and told me they didn’t like the hook anymore.  And they changed the hook 60 times.”

Watch: Rihanna – “Who’s That Chick” Official Video

Looks like Ri-Ri has release a new song AND music video. Titled “Who’s That Chick” the track is produced by David Guetta, probably the hottest person in the music industry right now. All I have to say is AUTOTUNE!!! The song isn’t anything special it actually sounds like “Just Dance” by Lady Gaga to us. Watch the 80’s disco Alice in Wonderland video below!

New Release: JoJo – “Can’t Take That Away From Me” Mixtape

Who knew that pop/hip-hop songstress JoJo made mixtapes. Does that make her kind of legit? I guess kind of…maybe I should make a mixtape? I don’t think it makes her that legit since the songs aren’t really blowing me away like many a mixtapes that we have blogged about. I definitely think that she has grown as an artist moving more from a young popstar to hip-hop artist but she isn’t completely there yet almost half-assed. There are two songs worth noting on Can’t Take That Away From Me. “Boy Without A Heart” is a slow jam that reminds me of Beyonce and “What You Like” which features Jordan Gatsby sounds like old school Janet Jackson. I would download just these two songs and skip the rest if I were you.

Listen: New Kid Cudi “Did You Get It”

Check out this new track from Kid Cudi titled “Did You Get It.” I’ll tell you who gets it…this girl. This track is just meh to me, it’s no Mr. Rager but it will do. Unfortunately we only have the track with tags (boo!) which is probably the most annoying thing in the world and I promise once the non-tagged gets out we will update. Listen below!

Watch: Official Music Video for Black Mountain “The Hair Song”

Listen: Lupe Fiasco – “Go To Sleep”

It’s been a few years since we’ve heard anything new from Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco who, at the time, had a different hip hop vibe than others. Since then Drake and Kid Cudi have emerged onto the scene, probably taking some of Lupe’s fans since he hasn’t released anything in so long. His latest single “Go To Sleep” is off his LP Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album and I find it ok. I mean, I was a big fan before but honestly I kind of forgot about him and this single doesn’t have that “I’m back bitches” that grabs me. Unless he comes out with something more wow-ing, I think I’ll stick to Kid Cudi and Drake right now. Follow the link below to listen and let me know what you think!
