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.

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 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...

Nas - Daughters (Prod. by No I.D.)

I liked "The Don" and "Nasty," but after only a few seconds in, "Daughters" is already my favorite from Nas's upcoming album Life Is Good. Check out the No I.D. produced single below!

Jhené Aiko Signs With Def Jam!!

Score 1 for the underground!! Jhené Aiko, one of my personal favorite artists out, has Sailed her Soul(s) to Def Jam for a deal with the No I.D., the head of the Cocaine 80s family. I'll have more info as it comes, but make sure you give her a shoutout on Twitter for the business move.

And for the diehard fans worried that she'll change, just listen to her music! Plus she's joining an incredible team of singer songwriters signed to Def Jam like The-Dream, James Fauntleroy & Frank Ocean so I feel like the sky's the limit for the Cali beauty.

No I.D. Makes $ense ('92-'11) [New Mixtape]

No I.D. has accomplished A LOT during his almost twenty years in the hip hop industry.  He's produced some incredible songs and he's definitely not close to stopping.  With Cocaine 80s, his work with G.O.O.D. Music, and his position as the new V.P. of A&R at Def Jam, there's nowhere to go but up for the Chicagoan.

In honor of all of No I.D.'s success, No I.D. Makes $ense, a mixtape boasting some of his most monumental production has been compiled.  Peep the full tracklisting and download link after the jump!

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!
