The 2015 Grammys were filled with a variety of a high energy performances and entertaining laughs, but one of the highlights has to be Kanye West interrupting Beck accepting the Album of The Year award, beating out Beyoncé.
This pays an ode to when he stopped Taylor Swift from accepting the award for Best Female Video Of the Year in 2009 beating out Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" at the MTV 09' VMA's.
This of course is a joke with Kanye smiling the whole time and Beck even offering for him to speak on the mic, but either way is worth the hilarious laugh.
Also, even funnier is Jay-Z's horridly amused face from the crowd witnessing Kanye go on stage.
Big Sean just signed with Roc Nation management (Jay Z's company) last night and today kicks off the announcement with a brand new 4 song EP.
The 4 songs include a a standout track "I Don't Fuck With You" featuring E-40 produced by Kanye West, DJ Mustard and DJ Dahi which sounds like an instant hit. The other tracks include "4th Quarter" produced by Key Wane, "Paradise" produced by MikeWillMadeIt, and "Jit / Juke" produced by Nate Fox / The Internz / L&F. Sean offers some solid verses throughout the 4 tracks and gets extremely excited on what we can expect from his third studio album that he is currently working on. Listen below and enjoy!
It took a few minutes to pick my jaw off the ground after first listening through iconic rap heavyweight Jay-Z and Yung Jeezy's newest collaboration. The release "Seen It All" is a full bodied track with both Jeezy and HOVA spitting a fierce round of verses on top of a robust beat produced by Cardo. This heater had the makings of being featured on Jay-Z's best-selling album Magna Carta Holy Grail, but now will be listed on Jeezy's upcoming album dropping September 2nd. The potential to cause club and festival crowds to go wild when this is played live is quite strong. Enjoy

Coachella weekend has been filled with surprises thus far and legendary rapper Nas not only delivered an energized set, but possibly the biggest guest appearance of the weekend. Nas celebrated the occasion with a special tribute to one of the most iconic albums in hip-hop, playing his Illmatic album in full for it's 20th year anniversary.
If that wasn't enough on it's own, he participated in Coachella's spirit by bringing out a very very special surprise guest, fellow New York hip-hop icon Jay-Z (who he once had a huge feud with), to perform "Dead Presidents" and "Where I'm From". Nas snuck in a few other hits including "One Mic" and "Made You Look". To help end the set, he brought Diddy out for "Hate Me Now". All together it was easily one of the most entertaining hip-hop sets we have ever seen. Stream the entire performance below and enjoy!

There's no denying the international star power between electronic music pioneers Daft Punk and hip-hops great Jay-Z, but unbeknownst to many of us untill today the iconic artists came together to collaborate on a track during a supposed studio session with Kanye West producing for the Tron Soundtrack. "Computerized" is every bit as awesome as you'd expect, with Daft Punk turning back time to lay down a classic electro funk beat similar to pre-Random Access Memories days with splashes of catchy synth patterns and keyboard samples galore while Jay-Z lays down verse after verse with flawless ease.
This potential blockbuster has every media source searching for the factual nature of this track since it surfaced over the weekend, but unlike most bootlegs previously touted as Daft Punk originals, this sounds extremely legitimate and also raises the question of why this was track was scraped from a release. Stream the track below and stay on the look for more info as soon it becomes available. Enjoy

Today we get our ears on one of the most exciting collaborations to be released at the end of 2013 as Rick Ross and Jay-Z team up for “The Devil Is A Lie”.

Creative, catchy, and down right awesome are just a few words that come to mind. Hopefully we see these two rap icons work together on material in the future. Enjoy.
