First Listen: A Snippet Of Kanye West’s Unreleased Song ‘Black Bruce Wayne’ Leaks To The Internets

The Black Knight

A previously unreleased but long-rumored song titled Black Bruce Wayne by Kanye West has leaked its way to the Internets and altho the clip featured below is only a short snippet, it does give us a pretty good feel for what the full song sounds like. I’m not sure if this song was meant for Kanye‘s previous album Yeezus and just didn’t make the cut or if it will appear in full on his upcoming follow-up album due out this year but now that a snippet of the song has come to light, I suspect that the full song will get leaked eventually. Until then, click below to get this small taste of Black Bruce Wayne. More »

First Listen: O-Town Releases Their Comeback Single ‘Skydive’

"I'm seeing you again"

In April we learned that the former Making The Band boy band O-Town was planning an Ashley Parker Angel-less reunion this year and earlier this month, we saw photos from the group’s most recent photoshoot as the newly reformed O-Town. Today we get our first listen of the groups new single Skydive, which will appear on O-Town‘s upcoming new album Lines & Circles. The new album won’t be out until August 3 but Skydive gives us a good feel for what we can expect when the album drops in a few months. Altho I’m not a big fan of pop ballads, I have to admit that this new O-Town song sounds heaps better than I thought it would. Have a listen below. More »

First Listen: Kanye West Debuts A New Song Titled ‘God Level’ In A New adidas Commercial

From 'Yeezus' to 'God Level'
"Yea we cool motherfucker yea yea"

So … Kanye West got married to his babymama in a ceremony in Florence, Italy today — yada yada LDR yada — but the REAL Kanye news today is that Yeezus is debuting a new song titled God Level in a new ad campaign for adidas. Just weeks ahead of the World Cup soccer tournament, adidas has unleashed its The Dream: All In or Nothing campaign and in the just-released first video commercial, Kanye‘s new song God Level is featured. The song was produced by 88-Keys, Hudson Mohawke, Mike Dean, Noah Goldstein and Yeezy himself. It’s unknown if the song will appear on Kanye‘s new album but I find it hard to believe he won’t put a song titled God Level on his new album. Click the embed above to watch the just-released adidas commercial to preview the track and then click below to hear a longer version of Kanye‘s new song God Level. More »

Listen/Cringe: Justin Bieber Tries To Rap The Tupac Song ‘Dear Mama’ In Cannes

Bizzle in the Hizzle
Bizzle takes on Tupac

Earlier this week we learned that pop star Justin Bieber made his way to Cannes, France to party with the grown folks at the Cannes International Film Festival and apparently hook-up with Paris Hilton in the process. Today, sigh, we learn that JB decided to jump on the mic while partying at the Gotha Club this week to spit a Tupac rhyme. Yes, yes he did. The bad news is that the video above features The Biebs rapping the Tupac Shakur song Dear Mama. The good news is that he didn’t sing the whole song. Enjoy.

PS: In order to undo the damage of hearing Justin Bieber rap this song, you can see the official music video for Tupac‘s Dear Mama below. More »
