Backed by the ever-passionate Kanye West, Pusha T's solo debut album My Name Is My Name will finally be upon us tomorrow, October 8th. Despite King Push claiming that his rival Drake is no competition, I have no doubt that his rival's Nothing Was The Same will be a major point of reference for most when critiquing MNIMN.
Stream My Name Is My Name below courtesy of Myspace, and hit the jump to catch the visuals to the Kendrick Lamar featured "Nosetalgia."

Today, in a time where ridiculous publicity stunts like fake proposals are key reasons why people listen to music, it's refreshing to see that tracks like Big Sean's "Fire" can be appreciated without any huge banners or announcements leading up to the release. In fact, the Hall Of Fame track wasn't supposed to hit the net, but a premature leak caused Sean to let the passionate track loose for his fans.
Stream "Fire" below, and let me know if you'll be copping Big Sean's sophomore album Hall Of Fame when it hits stores August 27.

Kanye West let it be known on Twitter that he wasn't happy about the video to "Black Skinhead" leaking last week before it was completed. Today, however, the final cut of the interactive visuals premiered on KanyeWest.com.
Check out the visuals below and hit the comments to let me know your thoughts on both the video and of Yeezus. Did Kanye really release the best verse in Hip Hop history on "New Slaves?"

Ever since Jhené Aiko became a part of No I.D.'s Artium/Def Jam family, Big Sean took advantage of the new addition, revealing their chemistry in the studio on a few tracks from his acclaimed Detroit mixtape. Now with his sophomore album Hall Of Fame officially slated for an August 27th release, he rolls out another single attempt with "Beware" featuring the "Comfort Inn Ending" songstress and Lil Wayne.

A Pharrell/Neptunes beat gets an automatic listen from me any time of the day, and when I'm in Turn down FOR WHAT?! mode a 2 Chainz line is like a nice selection from Chicken Soup For The Soul.
Thanks to "Feds Watching," I think I've found middle ground for 2 Chainz on my iTunes. The reggae tinged beat is perfect for the summer and "Feds Watching" is a great street single to test the waters for his forthcoming sophomore album.
As a bonus hit the jump to catch 2 Chainz's full set from Summer Jam XX, which features a surprise performance from last year's Summer Jam nemesis Nicki Minaj.

Shortly after debuting his new song "New Slaves" on the buildings of 66 cities worldwide, Kanye West took to SNL to deliver two intense performances from his upcoming album Yeezus. From the sounds and the delivery of "New Slaves" and "Black Skinhead," Kanye seems to be delivering an album that both College Dropout and 808's & Heartbreaks' biggest fans will love.
Stream the performances below, and hit the comments with your thoughts on Ye's new material.

Leave it to Kanye to find an inventive way to premiere a new single. With his appearance on SNL only hours away, I was sure the track would pop up some time today. Never did I think it'd be done like this.
Instead of passing his single along to Flex, or mysteriously tweeting the record, Kanye had a performance of "New Slaves" projected along 66 buildings across the world.
Check out the debut of "New Slaves" Ye's hometown of Chicago courtesy of GoWhereHipHop's Maks G.
As a huge Kendrick fan, I can't help but compare the subject matter to both parts 1 and 2 of "Vanity Slave," but I'm glad to see Kanye returning to his College Dropout roots.

In typical Cocaine 80's fashion, No I.D. casually sent out "Congratulations," a new collaboration with Common.
On "Congratulations" Common tells the story of his best friend getting married in June to someone who might not be the right one for him. Did she smash the homie? Listen to find out.
Common ft. Cocaine 80s - "Congratulations" Lyrics
