One more preview off the upcoming Black Radio 2 by the Robert Glasper Experiment as "Trust" is the album's concluding track featuring Marsha Ambrosius and Common. Marsha carries this record with some sultry singing on what sounds like it would be a fitting end for an album. You may be surprised, pleasantly, by Common's feature — a spoken word verse, and a poignant one at that. A perfect track for chilling out this weekend and beyond!
So tonight, Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar, and Jay Electronica got Twitter acting all sorts of crazy as Sean let loose of a track that was meant for his upcoming album, Hall Of Fame, but couldn't make it due to sample clearance.
Dubbed "No I.D.""Control", you can hear this epic, 7.5 minute track where all three emcees straight rap. No hooks. Just dope bars after dope bars.
UPDATED: Dirty, no tags, CDQ.
What grabbed everyone's attention: Kendrick Lamar giving much respect to every big-name emcee in the game today... and then proceeding to declare he's going to murder them (rap talk, of course). That's what got everyone in a stir tonight.
The whole song from beginning to end is dope. Everyone's talking about Kendrick, and rightfully so, but are we a little caught up in the moment? Sean and Elect were no slack as well. Whatever your thoughts, it's a great night in hip hop on this alone, and for that, we thank you *Tosh voice*
What are your thoughts on the "No I.D." Freestyle? Your favorite verse is __________.
Here is Marsha Ambrosius' first single off the upcoming album, Friends & Lovers, and she enlists Ne-Yo for an emotional duet of sorts. It's one to sit back and appreciate in your R&B rotation, check it out above.
Says Marsha of a new tune her fans will likely like:
I was compelled to write and play this song because I heard it in a dream. I was out in LA doing a couple of writing session a couple of weeks ago and this song happened. Flying back to Philadelphia the other day, I captured footage of the clouds on my iPhone. Felt only right to put the two together as I reflected on the lives lost these past couple of weeks. Jimme Wall Street, Lil Snupe, Aunty. I can listen to this and remember. I can listen to this and want to forget. I can listen to this and mend a broken heart or feel it break. I made this song to FEEL!
