Meek Mill – Black Magic f. Rick Ross

Track two off that Self Made 2 compilation, due out June 26th. Bombs by Flex for now.

Down With Webster – I Want It All (rmx) f. Kyle Lucas & STS (prod. Boi-1da)

The Vonnegutt front-man and Sugar Tongue Slim join the Canadaland band on the official remix to their Boi-1da produced single. And from what I recall, these guys are pretty huge up North, so this is unquestionably a tremendous look for the ATLien homies.

Lil Wayne – My Homies Still f. Big Sean (Single Artwork)

Well, well, well… what do we have here? Looks like Wayne is grabbing Sean for the first single (dropping tomorrow) off his upcoming album, I Am Not A Human Being 2. I’d like to think this was recorded before the whole Pusha T / Lil Wayne situation, but with a title like this? Who knows. Either way, it’s gonna be absorbing to hear. Shouts to Rap-Up.

Kids These Days x Conan (Video)

Those kids from the Chi are gonna be rocking the stage on Conan, June 13th. Dope!

Who Wants To See Childish Gambino, ScHoolboy Q & Danny Brown?

New York denizens of the dopehouse: On June 26th Childish Gambino will bring ScHoolboy Q, Danny Brown, myself and his Camp Tour to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, and here’s your chance to win passes to catch the entire thing for the low price of $Free.99. How do you enter to win? Simple:

* Using your the Twitter account, hashtag #Camp and reply to myself (MekDot), ScHoolboy Q, Danny Brown and Donald Glover‘s accounts
* Enter your full, real name and legit email in the c-section down below where applicable (not in the comment itself, unless you want some random spam bot flooding your inbox for the next 50-11 years), and write “#Camp” and your the Twitter account name (not the entire link, just your “@Name”) as your comment

and I’ll pick one person out of the mix as the winner. It’s not that hard, right?

If you don’t win this contest, you’ll have another chance to score a pair with the second (and final) contest. Also, you can still grab tickets to the Brooklyn affair right now. New York residents/those who actually plan on being in Brooklyn the time of the event enter only. Good luck.

angel haze – No Church In The Wild Freestyle (Video)

Like the Alpha Lion in a pride of predators, Angel Haze is cocksure. She’s smart and she walks it. She knows she can rap, and she knows she’s better than her shine would suggest. At 21 she’s lapping rappers her age, and twice her age, and of her sex, and of the opposite. When a mid-town recording studio fell through, Angel and Yours Truly walked to the New York Public Library where the towering bronze doors reminded Angel of Jay & Ye’s “Watch The Throne” album cover, and her trojan invasion of “No Church In The Wild.”
