By no means is “Ride For (My Nigga)” a new song; it was featured on the Corporate Thuggin’ Entertainment #ItsThaWorld EP. However, it is fitting as YG just inked a deal with Young Jeezy‘s collective, adding a replacement for Freddie Gibbs, who left a few months back.
The DJ Mustard produced track functions as the West Coast rapper’s official single. Featuring Jeezy and Riche Homie Quan, who is heating up the South, the track is filled with loyal rhymes over Mustard’s distinct sound.

Following their interviews on Nighthawk Radio last Sunday (June 16th), Q Major, Latrell James and Mr. Fritz left their mark on #SpitThatIshSundays. Over instrumentals like “New Slaves,” “Backseat Freestyle” and more, the three Boston rappers unleash a lyrical marathon for 13 minutes. If you thought the Bean couldn’t rap, think again.

Back in May, Jitta On The Track performed in Boston for the first time at Tommy Doyle’s. Despite a few issues that included my brand new Canon deciding not to work, I was able to interview the Connecticut based rapper; thanks to the late Steve Jobs and the almighty iPhone.

Watch the interview above and stay tuned for new material from Jitta in the near future.

Miami’s Bizzy Crook hits the booth and pens a letter to his idol Kanye West. Produced by SkipOnDaBeat, the rapper dives into impressive story telling as he lays out his admiration for the hip-hop heavyweight, who just released the highly anticipated Yeezus. Whether this is Crook really laying his thoughts out on the track (which I believe) or just a marketing tactic, “Emails From Kanye West” is a heck of a song, which should get the 305 rapper some new fans. Will Ye’ respond?
