The Chainsmokers saw international attention from their unexpected chart topping single "#Selfie" that was released through Dim Mak earlier this year. The duo has turned out an endless stream of remixes (Like Bebe Rexha's "Drinking About You" or Neon Trees "Sleeping With You"), proving how much production talent the guys truly have despite their ridiculous first single. Well they are back with a second original single, an ode to one of the industry's most talked about men, "Kanye". And while it seems to be clear the song isn't as much about Kayne specificially, but putting the shoes on of one of the most confident men alive. You can listen to the song in full today, and look for a release on iTunes / Beatport tomorrow, August 5th. Enjoy!

Joey Bada$$ let's loose the first cut from his debut studio album B4DA$$, following up the highly acclaimed Summer Knights. This first single "Big Dusty" produced by his go to prodcuer Kirk Knight has some nice chilled out drums and a feint yet effective piano line setting the tone of the track. We hear a far more matured Joey drop some of the most raw lines I've ever heard from the young artist who has grown up fast traveling the world over the past year. His lyricism and flow manages to hook you on every single word like most rappers are unable to do in their entire careers.You can listen below until it’s available through iTunes tomorrow, August 5th.
