New Mixtape: B.o.B – ‘New Black’

New Black

In the wake of the protests in Ferguson, B.o.B rises up with his mixtape New Black. On the powerful and provocative eight tracks, the bulk of which he produced himself, the Atlanta rapper tackles politics, race, and religion.


“It’s a new world order that we live in … Lies on the lips of every politician,” he raps on “Missing,” while calling for a boycott on the title track (“Hit ‘em where it hurts—their pockets”).


B.o.B is gearing up to release his fourth album in spring 2015. “This album will be more like The Adventures of Bobby Ray to me,” he told Rap-Up TV of his 2010 debut. “But with an edge that The Adventures of Bobby Ray never had.”


Hear Bobby Ray spark a dialogue.

New Music: Frank Ocean – ‘Memrise’

Frank Ocean

While we wait on a new Frank Ocean album, the Grammy-winning singer quietly released a new song on his Tumblr page in the early hours of Friday morning. On the two-minute track “Memrise,” Ocean strips things all the way down as he sings about a lover.


“I memorized the wayward expressions / Never look down / Never let you see me down / I memorized the way no directions / Can I come over now / I’d like to stay a little while / I memorized your body exposed / I could fuck you all night long / From a memory alone.”


Earlier this year, he fired his management and publicist and hired Three Six Zero, who manages Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, and Kate Nash.


He has reportedly enlisted Hit-Boy and Rodney Jerkins for the follow-up to 2012′s channel ORANGE, along with frequent collaborators Happy Perez, Charlie Gambetta, and Kevin Ristro.


Not much else is known about the album, but director Nabil Elderkin said earlier this year that it “blows the sophomore-album myth out of the water.”

Rick Ross

With his seventh album Hood Billionaire in stores, Rick Ross hit the outdoor stage on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday. The Bawse, who’s looker slimmer these days thanks to his RossFit training program, performed his single “If They Knew” in the heart of Hollywood. Fans held up posters with his face on it, while he commanded the stage like a true boss.


His collaborator K. Michelle wasn’t able to join him because she had a show in Minneapolis, but she had to cancel after fainting due to “extreme dehydration.”


Hood Billionaire is expected to move 50-55,000 units in its first week.

Iggy Azalea Performs ‘Beg for It’ on ‘Fallon’

Iggy Azalea

Fresh off her performance at Sunday’s AMAs, Iggy Azalea took over “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday night. With some help from The Roots, the blonde rap sensation performed her latest single “Beg for It” off her new album Reclassified. Dressed in pink trousers and a printed blazer, she worked the stage with her two back-up singers/dancers.


Reclassified , which features five new songs and seven from The New Classic, is expected to sell 11-13,000 copies in its first week.


Iggy addressed the backlash from her two AMA wins for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist. “Not being proactive about anything in your life and then complaining about others who are is funny to me,” she tweeted. “i expected to see lots of it this week, success always seems to bring about a particular brand of nastiness in others and thats sad.”


Watch I-G-G-Y light up late night.
