You can say whatever you want about Chris Brown, but the man’s work ethic is undeniable. After presenting a few songs and an official video last week, Chris Brown kicks off the new week with “Strip” – a new tune produced by Tha Bizness that finds him sharing the mic with Kevin McCall. The songs will allegedly be featured on his new mixtape Boy in Detention. You can check out the official artwork above and listen to the song below!
Until his highly anticipated and debated debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story hits stores on September 27, J. Cole has decided to deliver a constant flow of material to his fans. Every Sunday from now until that date, Cole will be releasing a song, video, or other piece of content, such as this EP that he put up on his blog last night. Properly titled Any Given Sunday #1, the project consists of one track that he wanted to save for his second album, one brand new collaboration with his friends Omen and Voli, and three other cuts that you may already be familiar with. See below for the tracklist and descriptions of the songs, and download the EP here.
1. Like A Star– Was saving this for the 2nd album. Due to some other shit beyond my control, I’ma let this out now.
2. Knock On Wood- One of my fav. freestyles.
3. Pity- Brand new J. Cole, Omen, Voli. Produced by Voli @volitheentity
4. How High– at one point this was guaranteed to go on The Sideline Story.
5. Unabomber- Just heard this today for the first time in a longgg time. Love these raps.
Every Sunday til the album drops I’ll be back with something. Maybe just 1 song, maybe a video, depending on how I’m feeling.
September 27! We almost there. Until then…

Remember Blind Fury on BET’s Freestyle Fridays and MTV’s Rocafella Battle? Born blind on October 10, 1984 in Camden, South Carolina, Blind Fury’s mother was told her son didn’t have a chance of seeing his first birthday. He was playing the keyboard by four, singing by five, rapping by nine and slaying emcees before international audiences by 19 on MTV’s Rocafella Battle in 2003. After receiving the co-sign from Jamie Foxx, Killer Mike, T.I., KaySlay, DJ Premier, Ghostface, Ludacris, FatMan Scoop, Gregg Street, Big Gipp and many more, his debut album Beautiful dropped July 5 on Gang Green Records. MTV made his rhyme skills world-renowned, but “Feel Some Type of Way” is a slow-burning R&B cut that announces him as a singer/songwriter at heart. Who knew he could sing, and it’s quite impressive. Peep below.
