Here’s “Standing In The Rain”, that Action Bronson, Mark Ronson and Dan Auerbach collab that I know caught your eye on the Suicide Squad soundtrack tracklist. Bam-Bam was due for some new music and this delivers. If the title didn’t tip you off, it borrows heavily from the Oran Juice Jones track “The Rain”.

Listen to an extended snippet and some conversation between Zane Lowe and Ronson about the track below. UPDATED with a full version of the song.

Video: KiD CuDi x Mr Hudson x Mark Ronson Backstage at Wireless Festival 2009

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

The homie Sumit from HHC got to walk around with Cudi this weekend.

On Sunday, I was covering the Wireless Festival that was headlined by Kanye West. I managed to interview a few artists including a very energetic KiD CuDi. Before we began the interview, CuDi had seen the Michael Jackson t-shirt (pic below) I was wearing and bugged out. He had one of his peoples take a picture of him pointing at my tee. I then started talking to Cudi about his performance, he told me he wanted to really stage dive and it was at that point I just let the camera roll. He just wanted to go for a walk. I’d never done anything like this before and I really enjoyed myself. As we made our way out of the press room, some of Cudi’s fans went crazy!!!!

Hit the jump to see him chat briefly with Mr Hudson and Mark Ronson.

They’re running a piece on Wale in the June issue of GQ (with Christian Bale on the cover). Here’s an excerpt:

The Multitaskingest Rookie in Rap

Olubowale Victor Akintimehin, now 24, cut his teeth as an 18-year-old by jumping onstage to kick rhymes with D.C.-area go-go bands. A self-released single, “Good Girls,” found its way to Mark Ronson, who signed Wale to his label, which led to a management deal with Jay-Z’s company Roc Nation. Now, finally, his first official album is finished—and Attention Deficit might be the most sonically adventurous major-label hip-hop debut ever. With production from Ronson, Cool & Dre, and even Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio, the upbeat album has tribal go-go drums, throwback horns, walls of sound from Sitek, and a live-band feel developed over countless club dates. And like a young Jay-Z or Kanye, Wale has a crystal-clear, jocular flow—They keep sayin’ “whale” but my name Wah-lay / Hos call me Mr. Never-Wear-the-Same-Thang—that puts him leaps ahead of his freshman competitors.
