Black Friday isn't just a big day for shopping — it's also a big day for music on the strength of the new "TKO RMX" alone.
Justin Timberlake enlists J. Cole, A$AP Rocky, and Pusha T for the new version that leaves his vocals on the hook. Everyone will be talkin' about it because of J. Cole's response to Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse.
IMHO, it sounds like he glorifies it even more on accident, even saying his family was wondering how he'd respond and how the girl he was courtin' had it playing on her iPhone. As a result, I'm not sure the bars that follow are that strong. Listen in below and determine for yourself.
Justin Timberlake "TKO RMX" f/ J. Cole, A$AP Rocky, & Pusha T
Yesterday was one of the more impressive MTV RapFix Freestyles yet. Chicago's own Vic Mensa kicked it off and you can just see the approval of A$AP Rocky & Bun B as he goes on. There are some true, off the dome freestyles throughout especially as Vic and A$AP go one after another to conclude it all. Sway brings in Oakland female emcee Glam for some nice bars as well. From beginning to end, this one's fun to follow. Watch and enjoy!
It's been a busy couple of days on the Blog, primarily featuring new interviews thanks to Kanye West(who's as engaging as ever) and Drake(who talked to everybody today, huh?). But let's get to the music, shall we? I just want to spotlight a couple artistic new music videos in this space, leading off with Drizzy's surprise action-packed, guns ablazing, kidnap rescue short film for "Hold On, We're Going Home". He celebrates the release of Nothing Was The Same today by giving us a collective, "wait, what?" moment, but there's no denying that this video was entertaining.
The other couple big music video releases today were courtesy of A$AP Rocky, who makes a cameo in "Hold On" oh btw, for his "Fashion Killa", which sees Rihanna as his love interest, as directed by #Virgil Abloh# (I felt the hashtags were a nice touch.) Plus, Miley Mania continues as she stars in "23" with Juicy J & Wiz Khalifa for Mike Will's new video, where she dons of the jersey of the G.O.A.T. (and sparks cringes from Bulls fans everywhere). ICYMI, watch above, below, and hit all the categories for even more new music and interviews.
The official version of this A$AP Rocky cut off the GTA V Soundtrack. Lovin' the radio in that game. Here's one of many tracks that were created originally and specifically for the hottest game out right now.
