Timbaland ft. Drake & James Fauntleroy - "Know Bout Me"

Timbaland's had a busy year assisting on Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail and both of Justin Timberlake's platinum The 20/20 Experience releases. Now, the legendary producer has taken the time to share what he's got planned for his next solo project, Textbook Timbo, as he premiered new track "Know Bout Me" featuring Drake and Fauntleroy. Don't get too excited about "Ft. Jay Z..."His contribution to the record includes a few leftover ad-libs, not a hot 16.

Terrace Martin is one of the rare musicians who possesses the ultimate respect of the leaders in a variety of circles, from the jazz world to the Hip Hop community. Terrace Martin combines these worlds seamlessly with his new self-produced album 3ChordFold as he calls upon Kendrick Lamar, Robert Glasper, Ab-Soul, Musiq Soulchild, James Fauntleroy, Wiz Khalifa, Lalah Hathaway, Snoop Dogg and more to make the project complete.

Purchase the album on iTunes HERE, but get a sample of 3ChordFold below by checking out "Triangleship" featuring Kendrick and "No Wrong No Right" featuring James Fauntleroy and Robert Glasper.

Drake ft. James Fauntleroy - "Girls Love Beyonce"

Drake wasn't kidding when he said this would be a very good week for his fans. After giving Khaled the okay to drop "Started From The Bottom" remix "No New Friends," he sneaks in a new track using Fauntleroy's Cocaine 80s strategy. Looks like the road to Drake's forthcoming effort Nothing Was The Same is officially in sight.

Stream the "Say My Name" sampled "Girls Love Beyonce" below, which capitalizes on a scientifically proven fact. We DO love her!

[New Mixtape] Cassie - #RockaByeBaby

Cassie may not have the best vocal range, but I'll tell you what she does have. A good a** team of writers and producers around her.

After being relatively quiet since her Bad Boy debut in 2006, she presents her new tape RockAByeBaby, which features guest appearances by Wiz Khalifa, Jeremih, French Montana, Fabolous, Pusha T, Ester Dean and more. What's more impressive are the multiple writing credits from Cocaine 80s frontman James Fauntleroy, Jeremih as well as the production from TDE's Sounwave and Cali saxophonist Terrace Martin. Hate if you want, but I'll give this a d(^_^)b guarantee.

Common ft. Cocaine 80s - "Congratulations"

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.

Cocaine 80's ft. Jhene Aiko & Common - "Fly Ass Pisces"

Cocaine 80s is always lowkey with their releases, so I'm excited I caught this track on Twitter. Now that Jhené Aiko is down with the Artium clique, she, No I.D., James Fauntleroy and co. have been making beautiful music together. Add extended family Common to the equation and you get  "Fly Ass Pisces." Keep this one on repeat until Cocaine 80s drops its fourth project, Flower Of Life EP.

Cocaine 80s - Queen To Be

G's. If you've been down with me since the early days, you know how I am Tyrone Biggums for Cocaine 80s. When I broke my iPod right before my long road trip, the first thing I did was burn a CD (don't judge me) of both The Pursuit and Ghost Lady for the drive.

This morning I wake up and what's on Twitter? A secretive link for a new track. Ladies and gentlemen, this shall be a beautiful Friday.

James Fauntleroy does what he does best on the quick fix "Queen To Be," and I'm hoping that the mysterious collective of No ID, Fauntleroy, Common, Makeba Riddick, and more drop an EP pretty soon...

Common Performs "Celebrate" Live With James Fauntleroy The Roots [VIDEO]

This is the Common I love to see. While I find his Drake beef highly entertaining and hilarious, I just like to see the Chi Town having fun and focusing on his music. Watch below as he links up with Cocaine 80s partner James Fauntleroy (my absolute favorite) and The Roots crew for a performance to The Dreamer/The Believer single "Celebrate!"  Nothing like a live band...

Cocaine 80s - Ghost Lady EP

James Fauntleroy, No I.D., Common and company are so cool that they just drop EPs out of nowhere as the Cocaine 80s.  And the music is just exactly like their name--dope.  I still play their first EP faithfully, and I've tried to put as many people on that project as possible (GUE Radio, Vol. 1 & Vol. 13)

For a preview of the Ghost Lady EP, listen to "Six" ft. Over which includes vocals from Common and James Fauntleroy.

To download the full EP, click HERE!

They even included the The Pursuit EP, in the Ghost Lady EP download, so you get two for the piece of none!
