"Miss America" was a nice introduction to Born Sinner, but J. Cole's finally put out the single that he'll hopefully be riding comfortably with through radio waves for quite some time.
Check out his new single "Power Trip" featuring Miguel, which serves as retribution for Cole's assistance on Miguel's debut "All I Want Is You."

9th Wonder has definitely been an influence for Big K.R.I.T. as a producer, and it's great to see that the two have been cooking up more music in the studio.
Fortunately "Life Of Kings" isn't the last time we'll hear K.R.I.T. over a 9th track, since he traveled to NC to record "Gettin' Mine" with Jamla soldiers Rapsody and Heather Victoria. Stream the record below, and be sure to hit me on Twitter or Facebook with your the thoughts!

BanksOnTheBeat, one of my hometown heroes, has switched it into high gear as he preps to release both a beat tape and his next project as an artist, College Dropout Too, at the top of this year. On "Chapter MMMXIII," Banks lets DJ DAHI handle the production as he shows how much he's becoming a problem lyrically.
Check out the single from the Charlotte emcee below, and be sure to keep an eye out for some big moves from the YachTs crew in 2013.

Not sure how I let this get past me this week, but I know I can't let the weekend go by before dropping off Lotta's new mixtape Final Fantasy. If "This Is Love" and "Cross My Heart" weren't an indication of how serious is this project is, just hit play.
Stream Final Fantasy below, which features fellow GUE staples C-Weav and SL Jones, as well as SchylerChaise, and Caligula.
NC stand up!

If what King Mez has dropped so far from My Everlasting Zeal is any indication, you better not sleep on his new mixtape.
Before I sleep I'm just like yo, I invested thousands of dollars ,my love time and energy in this. It's a Free album. All we ask are clicks.
— King Mez (@KingMez) June 19, 2012
That's definitely not to much to ask for, especially when beats by Mez himself, J. Cole, and Commissioner Gordon command the project.
Proud to be from NC tears. :')

King Mez goes into straight beast mode on "Monte Carlo," the latest leak from his upcoming project My Everlasting Zeal. The entire album is produced by Commissioner Gordon, and from the sounds of this track, other producers are simply not necessary. NC stand up!

NC may be in J.A.E's heart, but Flatbush, Brooklyn is the rapper's second home. Watch him and the rest of the YachTs crew light up, play dice, and eat chicken (with Mary J. Blige?) in the visuals to "Gone," the lead single to J.A.E's forthcoming project Fruition.

When I saw the title I was immediately intrigued. It takes a lot of balls to go over a classic track, let alone classic Nas. As soon as I pressed play, J.A.E addressed his decision nonchalantly with "Ni**as act like they scared to go over classic sh*t," and proceeded to kill it. Check out his "The World Is Yours" freestyle below, and get ready for more new music from the YachTs crew emcee.

King Mez introduces to his upcoming album My Everlasting Zeal on "The Allure," produced by J. Cole. The Raleigh, NC bred emcee spits about his desire to make it in the game despite the many other rappers with less talent going after the same dream. Mez's May 15th release will consist of self produced tracks, as well as production from Soundtrakk (of Food & Liquor fame), Omen, Prolyfic, and more.
