Happy Summer, y’all. What a great Monday to go and chill out by the pool, eh? I thought so, which may be why I’m sitting in a truck bed full of water with my laptop and a Corona.
Here’s some music for wherever you decide to spend your Monday. Your ears need some relaxation too.
Our main man Curren$y tha Hot Spitta is back in the headlnes with his newest mixtape Smoke One For Spitta which dropped last week. It’s more like a Greatest Hits really, as it’s just a compilation of songs from Curren$y’s past albums and tapes, put together by Rocksmith and Jenesis Mag in preparation for Spitta’s new album, The Stoned Immaculate, set to lease June 5th.
There are a lot of hot albums poised to drop this summer, with A$AP Rocky‘s Live.Love.A$AP. close on Spitta’s heels. Will “Smoke One For Spitta” be enough to hold us over in these dryest times? Well just take a listen and see.

Jada. Kanye. Pusha. Bow in the presence of greatness. You may not have heard of Chief Keef before (I admit, I hadn’t til like 7 days ago) but he has just been endorsed by some pretty heavy hitters with this one. Check out Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music remix to his song “I Don’t Like” featuring Big Sean, Pusha T, and Jadakiss, below.
This song is catchy as hell (pun not intended.) Meek Mill and Drake team up with expert crooner, Jeremih for this diddly about everything that has NOT to do in church. Leave it to hip-hop to make sacrilege so appeasing….what the hell, I like this one. Listen to “Amen” from Meek Mill’s Dreamchasers 2 below.
Tyga and Drake team up once again and this time it’s for Tyga’s single“Still Got It” off of his upcoming album Last Kings. For the video, Drake is absent, but Tyga carries the Swag torch alone, as he exemplifies the epitaph of their shared label, Young Money. From rocking brands like Versace and Fendi to sporting pinky rings and watches that probably cost more than your car payment, Tyga turns this into a true rap video, even down to the contrived gun shots at the end. The song is hot though, which is another reason you should watch the video below:
Now, the weirdest shit for last. Just kidding. Or am I?
Kanye West has decided to up the WTF-factor one more time by releasing a video for the song a year and a half after it came out The video for “Lost In The World” off of 2010′s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy features some pretty impressive optical illusions, paired with slightly disturbing sequences of interpretive dancers as well. I really don’t know where Kanye’s mind is at these days, but as long as he keeps us guessing, I guess that’s all that matters. Check out the video for “Lost In The World” below:
