Absolute fuego these two tracks, especially the first one (The Future), which is only available on the European version of the CD!
The album dropped at midnight and President Carter had an album release party at Boulevard3 in Hollywood. Here, artists talk about how anticipated this album was and a few other things.

Looks like Birdman may be wrong when it comes to the sales of ‘Tha Carter IV’. Birdman said 1 mill 1 week, but Billboard projects about 700-850K. However, that’s still amazing sales and if it gets between those figures, then ‘Tha Carter IV’ will be the second-largest frame of any album this year, behind Lady Gaga’s 1.11 million debut with “Born This Way.” Check back at the end of the week on September 4th for the full week’s sales.
Lil Wayne just-released “Tha Carter IV” album could have the second-biggest sales week of the year, as industry forecasters suggest it may sell 700,000-850,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, Sept. 4.
EDIT: Looks like Weezy is getting closer and closer to platinum, he is now expected to hit over 850K in sales.
T.I is coming back. On August 31st, he will be released from custody and will be free to make music again. No word on what he is going to be working on next but another studio album is probably next. This Wednesday, he will be released, and post-prison interviews will definitely be posted.
EDIT: His date seems to remain as Sept 29th (day before my bday remember that)
His attorney tells XXL:
The Bureau of Prisons they won’t give you the information [of his release] until the very last minute. The Bureau of Prisons makes all the decisions once [someone goes] into the federal system then the federal prisons is the governing body as to when he’s released, the judge has no control over it. And you don’t have any real contact with them, they don’t communicate with you and they don’t tell you when exactly he’s gonna be released. They don’t even cooperate with me and tell me much of anything. He’s doing great. He’s certainly looking forward to getting this behind him.”
It’s official, Jay-Z and Beyonce are having a baby and several artist and celebrities speak on the big news. Nicki Minaj, Christina Milian, Jessie J, J Cole, Ciara, and Shaunie O’Neal all speak on the Hova Jr.
Tinie Tempah, Pusha T, Jim Jones, & Wiz Khalifa track, yes this did just happen. Listen & Download.
There is a lot of hype over this guy. Here’s the official music video to Yelawolf’s ‘No Hands’ track. ‘Radioactive’ will be in stores soon. This is also promo for Ubisoft’s ‘Driver San Francisco’ which comes out September 6th, 2011.
Watch the official music video for the Yelawolf song “No Hands” off of his upcoming album, Radioactive. Inspired by Ubisoft’s Driver San Francisco video game, the music video was shot at several of San Francisco’s landmark locations and features Yelawolf driving the real-life Driver car throughout the City by the Bay. Driver San Francisco is in stores starting September 6th, 2011.
Flo Rida drops his latest track called ‘Good Feelin’. It’s a great track and is sure to be a club hit, Flo-Rida should stick to the techno/house beats. Listen & Download
Edit: I’ve been away with no power from that slut Irene since saturday, but Stavros has been coming through with these posts (although they may still be rap oriented, still good music). He missed the memo about the Avicii sample, but as you can see, now that a full track is out there maybe Flo Rida got the clearance (although I doubt Avicii would let him sample Levels already). I posted “Hangover” ft. Taio Cruz that includes the same verses over a different beat, so it seems like that wasn’t the real version. You can now buy “Good Feelin” on iTunes here.
No I.D is now Def Jam’s Executive Vice President which means alot will be brought to this Label. No I.D killed Finally Famous, this is well deserved. Can’t wait to see whats next. This is what No I.D had to say…
“I’m (now) executive VP of Def Jam. I’m going to keep on doing what I’m doing and take it to another level. Def Jam is a cultural staple. It’s not just a label, it’s part of the culture that I came up in and that I’ve been involved with for 20 years. It’s very important that the next generation of executives grab it by the horns and keep it on track as it grows.”
