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.

Fat Joe has been relatively quiet in the last few months, but hopes to change that as his new single "Ballin'" has hit the net. The hook from Teyana Taylor is simple yet catchy and a verse from Wiz Khalifa can never hurt, but do you think this track deserves more than one listen? Hit the comments and let me know!

I took a little sabbatical from blogging late last year to shift my focus a little more from reporting what kind of music was out there to creating. While I plan to continue sharing great music with all my loyal G's out there, look forward to more mixes which I intend to make better with each and every edition.
During my brief break, I put together The Re-Up, which a lot of people seemed to enjoy and pass around. Since it's the weekend it's the perfect time to give this a spin and take a nice, healthy shot of Turnup juice. Check out the rest of the repertoire on Mixcloud and be sure to let your support be known!

With Wiz Khalifa's O.N.I.F.C. in stores and a new baby set to debut any minute now, the Taylor Gang captain's got a lot going on. Somehow he still managed to find time to shoot a short video for "100 Bottles," which lives on his highly downloaded mixtape Cabin Fever 2.

Juelz Santana was undeniably one of the biggest emcees in New York during Dipset's reign at the start of the millenium. He's been a little quiet the past few years, but his return to the game is completely welcome after listening to God Will'n. Stream and download the project below, which features Jadakiss, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Fabolous, Lil Wayne, Yo Gotti, Wiz Khalifa, Lloyd Banks, Future, Wale, Jeremih and more.

Akon's album Stadium has been in the works since 2010, but it appears the Konvict is finally making moves to release that bad boy. Listen to "Dirty Work," his new single with Wiz Khalifa and tell me if you think Akon has a hit on his hands. I say yes.

Wiz Khalifa reaches out to Memphis veteran Project Pat, who is practically Taylor Gang extended family being Juicy J's brother and all, on "Still Got It." I don't think this one will land on O.N.I.F.C. so just enjoy this loosie.

Wiz Khalifa's sophomore album O.N.I.F.C. hits stores on August 28th, and he's giving us another preview of what he has in store as he's accompanied by Game and Stat Quo on "Far From Coach." Nice to see Stat Quo make the album!

There was entirely too much going on in the music world yesterday for me to watch the MTV Movie Awards, but I give them props for their performances. Wiz Khalifa turned the ceremony into an onstage party when he performed "Work Hard, Play Hard" with a nice live performance and Janelle Monae joined fun. to perform their hit "We Are Young."

Chris Brown taps Jamie Kennedy, Snoop Dogg, Red & Meth to join him, Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa in the visuals to "Till I Die." Did I have too many Absolut-orange pineapples while watching the game, or does this video make little sense? Shrug. Still love the track.
