From my understanding, Ricky is attempting to recapture the same energy as Juvenile’s music video for “Ha” visual. Well, that first behind-the-scenes clip did absolutely nothing to convince me of that aspiration. We’ll see in a few days. Props to Vibe.
Without further ado, Rilgood has just dropped off his sophomore effort today through mixtape form entitled Great Expectations. Just as the title suggests, the project was mapped out with a balance of progressive and lyrical content that was overseen by his mentor Dot Da Genius at his Brooklyn-based studio, The Brewery. Most of the production duties were helmed exclusively by rising beat makers Woodro Skillson and RC Bankwell. See if the project fulfills your “great expectations.”

Los Angeles denizens of the dopehouse: Shawn Chrys will be celebrating the release of his new project lovestory. on July 26th, and he has linked up with the dopehouse to giving one lucky fan a chance to win a pair of passes, as well as an autographed copy of the new project (executively produced by Timbaland), to catch the entire thing for the low price of $Free.99. How do you enter to win? Simple:
* Simply search out Shawn Chrys’ #ConversationsWithShawn hashtag on the site

I watched both of those cartoons on Netflix a few weeks ago, too.
Dallas lends his own brain matter to the DR x Roc Marci collaboration from their Sit Down, Man project.
Rap Up releases the artwork for the new single from 50 Cent featuring Dr Dre and Alicia Keys. Produced by Swizz Beatz. Has the same title as the Alicia Keys single which was recently released. The 50 Cent single is due out on the 24th July.

Rockstar Jones unloads the most anticipated collaboration off the #GreetingsFromHere EP. “Mayan Omega” features unforgettable verses from 3 of LA’s rising superstars discussing what they would do in their last few hours on Earth. The 5-track EP release also features appearances from NYC’s T-Shyne & Devon Blades on “Greetings,” along with rising LA artist, Vin. Production duties handled by V(eye)bes (Rockstar Jones – “Bombs”) & The Teamsterz (Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, Nipsey Hussle).
You never trust a man with two first names… this track will land on Tim’s Awkward Moments. Props to FSD.
Concise Kilgore is from Utah (yeah, there’s apparently more to Utah than John Stockton and Big Love), and this track featuring Bam Bam will be on his upcoming September release Kobain.
You can grab this via iTunes, if you’d like.
I’m not a fan of just doing drops of cover art for singles, and I’m a bit wary of this cut because the last time Jay and Dre linked up… well… “Under Pressure” happened. We’ll all hear the end result sooner than later, though. Props to XXL.
REBELutionary hits stores on July 24th (you can pre-order right here).

Ricky Rozay just dropped his latest vlog showing that he can ball on the courts as well as the streets. Also includes footage of Rozay filming the video to “Hold Me Back”.
God Forgives, I Don’t will be in stores July 31st.
The beat reminds me of the jazzy tunes of Native Tongues past… I can rock with this.
This song is my song for anyone that believes in second chances and loves Jazz. – brandUn
