Just a week after announcing Dirty Sprite 2 and watching the hype and buzz reach epic proportions in that same short period, Future Hendrix delivers his new album. Featuring production from Southside, Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, Sonny Digital and others, plus a solitary feature from Drake, it’s sure to be one of the most talked about projects of the Summer.
Above you’ll find the new video for the short but hard-hitting title track from the new Public Enemy album, Man Plans God Laughs. Chuck D, his voice as powerful as ever, delivers a stream of consciousness discourse over a chorus that implores us to “do it for the youth”.
The new album is available to stream now via Spotify (listen below) and purchase at RCS Music, but it will see a wider release on July 27th.
A damning new indictment against alleged Weezy tour bus shooter Jimmy Carlton Winfrey (aka Peewee Roscoe), seems to implicate both Young Thug and Birdman in the incident. Prosecutors say the Thugger associate phoned the rapper prior to the shooting and then called Birdman moments after opening fire on Wayne’s bus.
While this series of phone calls may seem largely circumstantial, their timing and other details, like the white Chevy Camaro that was supposedly used in the shooting being discovered at a relative of Winfrey’s residence certainly make the case stronger. Taken in the context of Wayne, Birdman and Young Thug’s very public and ongoing beef, it wouldn’t be a huge stretch to infer that somebody close to either Thug or Birdman knew exactly what was going down.
Complex has a great breakdown of the indictment which you can read here.
The legend Kool Keith and L’Orange share the first, appropriately batty, visual from their upcoming collaborative project Time? Astonishing! The clip plays out as footage of the time travelling title character roaming around the present day on a mission of observation. The album will be out on July 24th.
The outpouring of love for Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán continues as Westside Gunn and Conway drop “Welcome Home Chapo”. Conway snapped on this though: “I’m like Melo, lost two shooters, Shumpert & Smith…”
Havoc and Prodigy sit down with Montreality and field questions about their first big purchases, favorite childhood cartooons, the realest verse they ever wrote, 50 Cent’s legacy, the biggest lie ever told and more. They also share memories of Nate Dogg in the studio and how the use of the “Shook Ones Pt. II” beat in 8 Mile was a total surprise to them.
