Royce da 5′ 9 Preforms the songs Legendary, Where My Money and Writer’s Block from his ‘Success is Certain’ Album + his verse from the BET Shady 2.0 Cypher on January 10th 2012 in Toronto at the Sound Academy.
I know we’re already midway through August but here’s a little summer catch up for those of you looking for some new music to download.
-All that really needs to be said is Nickel + Primo…a formula that kills it every single time. Success Is Certain is in stores now and is quite good.
-Two of Detroit’s best young artists (Black Milk & Guilty Simpson) and a Brooklyn legend (Sean Price) came together for one of the best albums of the year, and this was far and away the standout track.
-Kendrick’s Section.80 IS the best album of the year so far, hands down.Besides HiiPoWer, I’d say this is the album’s best track, though a case could be made for many others.
4. Nasty – Nas
-My favorite track off of Weekend At Burnies, great video too.
-Mikey and Chuck straight killin it with the Ghostface feature and an overall dope track.
-Greneberg was short, but very sweet. All three are great producer/MCs, but Madlib’s lil bro Oh No steals the show with this crazy beat straight out of a horror movie.
This album is shaping up to be a heavily rock-influenced rap album. There needs to be more of this shit in hip-hop. If you want this over-saturation of shitty rappers and annoying songs to go away, this is one solution. Take some notes hip-hop.
Wow. Really fucking good. So far having heard ‘My Own Planet’, ‘Writer’s Block‘, ‘Second Place‘ and now this, Success Is Certain looks to be shaping up as a much better album than Hell: The Sequel (which was quite good), and possibly the best project of Royce’s career. Really excited for this to drop on August 9th…nice to hear Eminem ripping it on the boards again, as well, after a nice production showing on Hell: The Sequel (Em helped lace ‘Fast Lane’, ‘The Reunion’ & ‘Lighters’)
It’s a lot easier to post all the Bonaroo footage we got from the weekend in one post. Below and above is Bad Meets Evil performing their new track “Fast Lane”, Wiz Khalifa performing “Roll Up” and two classics. Hard to image Big Boi performing “So Fresh, So Clean” without Andre 3000 but he did it (like a huge bitch). Finally, Lil’ Wayne brought out his old friend Mannie Fresh to do their southern classic “Go DJ”.

A week before Bad Meets Evil drop their Hell: The Sequel EP, they release the first video off the project. If your looking for an old school feel with a new school sound then this shit is for you.
We’ve got 70 for you this time; the best of the best hip hop tracks from the past two months. Pretty damn extensive list, but if you think I missed any let me or dharis know on twitter (@dflanz, @AllMyHeadMusic). Download links for most; other ones you can listen to on youtube or buy.
- I can’t even imagine what beats J. Cole is saving for himself if he’s giving away ones like this, and this. Along with Cole, Kendrick is right up there as one of the best young rappers in the game. This might be the best song he’s dropped to date.
- Already beginning to be played out on the radio, but there’s no denial that this song is a jam. Love that Drake is sticking with the producers that have always brought out the best in him (40), contrary to what Wiz Khalifa has turned to (Stargate tracks over Johnny Juliano on Rolling Papers???).
- Zero Heroes is my favorite mixtape of the year so far, hands down. Truly great songs top to bottom; this one’s my favorite along with “Smallville”.
- Roscoe completely steals this show as he outshines mediocre verses from both Fab & Wiz. Despite an abundance of corny lines, “Oh My” bumps harder than any other song that dropped in the past 2 months. Click the link to watch the extremely dope video.
- The best song on Goblin. Tyler spits for four minutes showing off some impressive rhyme schemes over a pounding, twisted beat he made himself.
The newest members of the Shady 2.0 team linked up for a cut off the upcoming Bad Meets Evil EP.
…Will NOT be posted on AllInMyHead any time soon considering it’s fucking stupid and soft as hell. When you’re two of the best lyrical MCs in the game WHY do you need to work with pop singers like Bruno Mars? And why are you letting him dictate the overall sound of the song? I was really loving the direction of the album but now I’m ready to slit my throat at the thought of hearing this on the radio ten times a day….even Love The Way You Lie was more bearable than this. I’m really ready to say goodbye to whiny/screaming “Recovery” Eminem for good. True Em fans know that the “Relapse” style is much more classic Slim Shady..so check out their last leak, “I’m On Everything” instead, where Em revisits that type of rhyming and actually extremely dope lyrics! Definitely another corny chorus, but Royce and Em both kill it.
