[Music Video] Jarell Perry - "Getaway"

In conjunction with Russell Simmon's new venture All Def Digital, L.A. singer-songwriter Jarell Perry  presents the visuals to"Getaway"-- my favorite track on his Simple Things album. The West Coast sure has some talent in the R&B department, so get familiar with this man!

ScHoolboyQ - "Hell Of A Night" (Prod. by DJ Dahi)

ScHoolboy Q's album Oxymoron is next up for TDE, and Q gave NBA on TNT the honor of premiering his new single "Hell Of A Night." As usual, DJ Dahi outdoes himself on the beat, and Q puts his signature on the track. Yet another reason to get hype for the Black Hippy tour!

Black Hippy - "U.O.E.N.O." (Remix) + G.K.M.C. Tour Dates

This summer when all four brothers of Black Hippy will be touring together, they'll have another track to add to their set list. While Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O." has been redone about 5,842 times, Kendrick LamarScHoolboy QAb-Soul, and Jay Rock's version should be the remix to end all UOENO remixes.

Now... who's coming with me to The Tabernacle?

Jhené Aiko - "Comfort Inn Ending" (Prod. by No. I.D.)

For all my fellow Jhené Aiko fans dying to hear what her Artium/Def Jam debut Soul(ed) Out will offer, the beautiful songwriter gives us a bone with the 2 minute freestyle "Comfort Inn Ending."

Produced by her boss No I.D., Jhene vents about a recent relationship that went sour due to infidelity. I'm not one to speculate, but "CIE" may be about Compton rapper and Sailing Soul(s) collaborator H.O.P.E. Wright, who she publicly dated for a few years.

Although heartache may cause a few tears, thankfully, it can also create some great music. Thanks for sharing Ms. Aiko.

Ab-Soul ft. Mac Miller - "The End Is Near"

Ab-Soul and Mac Miller seem to get each other musically, and thankfully for us they continue to release records together.  All eyes are on Soul since his crowning as one of XXL's 2013 Freshman, and on his latest track "The End Is Near" he spits more than a few bars you might have to rewind to fully grasp. The track, produced by Mac Miller under the Pittsburgh emcee's alias Larry Fisherman, is a simplistic yet dark beat that's perfect for Ab-Soul and Mac to focus strictly on the lyrics.

Hit the jump to peep Ab-Soul's individual freestyle for XXL. Definitely representing TDE well!

Ray J ft. Bobby Brackins - "I Hit It First"

What's a Saturday without good laughs and f*ckery?

Ray J completely dominated Twitter on Friday when he revealed the cover for his new single "I Hit It First," donning a pixelated image of his ex Kim Kardashian. Messy!

While the single artwork is foolish enough, the accompanying track is ten times worse. Despite the fact that the beat sounds like a 2002 album bonus track from 3LW, the real focal point lies in the single's lyrics.

Gems like the hook's opening line "She might move on the rappers and ballplayers..,"the bridge's "If you were to come back to me we'll make another movie," and the repetitive crooning of "I put her on" in R. Kelly "Feelin' On Yo Booty" fashion to close out the record, are what makes life worth fighting another day.

Stream "I Hit It First" below, and hit the comments with your thoughts on the Ray J soon to be platinum banger.

[FreEP] TiRon & Ayomari - 'The Wonderful Prelude pt. 1'

The fact that TiRon and Ayomari are gearing up to release their sophomore album The Great New Wonderful is enough good news for me, but to give us a sample of what to expect on the full length project, they've released with the four track EP The Wonderful Prelude pt. 1.

Stream and download Prelude for free below, and hit the jump to see if TiRon & Ayomari's tour with Blu will be hitting your city!

[Music Video] Tyler, The Creator - "IFHY" + 'Wolf' [Album Stream]

Tyler, The Creator plans to release his album Wolf tomorrow, and both the critics and fans are giving the Odd Future general his props on this one. The Sony distributed album is a proper follow up to his previous efforts Bastard and Goblin as we find Tyler in a more elevated creative space in terms of  production and lyrical delivery.

While Odd Future videos have always been entertaining, Tyler also stepped up his game in the visual department. Watch below as he brings a Mattel themed nightmare to life in the visuals to the Pharrell featured "IFHY."

To hear how the rest of Wolf sounds before it hits stores tomorrow, stream the album in full after the jump!

[Video] Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q & Jay Rock Headline Paid Dues 2013

Black Hippy headlined this year's Paid Dues Festival as Kendrick LamarAb-SoulScHoolboy Q, and Jay Rock performed a handful of collaborations and solo tracks from their already deep collection.

Courtesy of Hip Hop Heisenberg, catch clips from their Paid Dues set, which include a few tracks from good kid, m.A.A.d city and ScHoolboy Q's latest single.

Kendrick Lamar - "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe (Remix)"

Black Hippy - "Black Lip Bastard (Remix)"

Young Jeezy - "R.I.P." (Remix) ft. YG, Kendrick Lamar & Chris Brown

It's safe to say that Young Jeezy's "R.I.P." brings life to the club, and it looks like the single isn't going anywhere as he recruited West Coast heavyweights Kendrick Lamar and YG to appear alongside him on the remix.

I'm not shocked that K. Dot spits the best verse on the remix, but I am surprised that I'm giving #2 to Chris Brown, who comes for Drake on his sixteen saying: "And if you started from the bottom gon' and come out the closet." Let the subliminal shots continue!

Check out the visuals to the Artium songstress' new single below, and catch cameos from her Cocaine 80s collaborator James Fauntleroy and her daughter's uncle, Omarion. Jhené's major label debut Soul(ed) Out is in the works!
