The 'Mr. Worldwide Remix'
It turns out that rapper Pitbull is a big fan of Taylor Swift and a huge fan of her song Blank Space specifically and, as such, has decided to put out a remix of her song with his very own guest rap vocal … I’m guessing to totally ruin the song completely. As you can hear below, Pitbull first explains why he was inspired to remix/ruin Taylor‘s song and then he proceeds to get to the song’s ruining by delivering the guest rap vocal that absolutely no one asked for. Curious? Have a listen below and see what you think. More »

We are SO not ready.
When I saw that Jaden Smith’s music had made it to Paste Magazine the other day, my heart kinda sunk to the floor. THIS KID IS EVERYWHERE NOW, OFFICIALLY. So today I caved, and finally listened to the track I’d been hearing some buzz about, Melancholy, in which Jaden raps over the 1973 Pink Floyd song, Breathe. Okay. Fine. If I forget all of my feelings about Jaden Smith, I can appreciate the song and lyrics. But now Jaden is reminding me of why I feel the way I feel about him, with a recent announcement regarding 2-3 unreleased rap albums that will, apparently, shut down the whole rap game until FOR-E-VER.
