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.

I think you have a feeling about the subject matter here. Busta enlists some friends for their take on the booty shaking anthem. Vybz Kartel gives a Jamaican touch to the track, while Ne-Yo and Jeremih provide the R&B (the song's highlight), and T.I. & French Montana with some new raps. Bombs by Flex for now.
In what I long expected for some months now since the kick off of her Mrs. Carter World Tour. Beyoncé has scrapped her album. While chatting it up with The Sun, producer Diplo confirmed the obvious… Beyoncé scrapped her album. Diplo was asked about her project and stated “I just did two songs for her new album, well, I tried,” and then saying, “I think she scrapped the record.”
“The album was suppose to be done and they been hitting me up for band new ideas.” Diplo also said, “I like to work from scratch, but sometimes I get called in to fix records.” Also contributing to the claims Beyoncé scrapping her album is one of its songwriters on the project, Ne-Yo. After speaking with Billboard Ne-Yo stared that “They’re still trying to figure out what they want that to be, which I’m not mad at. Beyoncé’s the kind of artist where you’re not gonna see till its right. And her fans – they love her so they’ll be patient.”
So with all that being said although Beyoncé pulled the plug on the original album, which should have been released MONTHS ago… It’s fine. It’s been a few months and if you can remember Beyoncé was recently in the studio with Travis Scott and he commented on listening to her new album, which he is also been rumored to contribute to. Beyoncé has ushered in a few new producer to work her album. So with how many months it been she could very well be near finished with the new album.
I’m actually glad Beyoncé went back in to rework her album, because topping her previously album, 4 is a must! I love “Grown Woman,”“Bow Down/I Been On,” and “Standing On The Sun,” but I didn’t feel any of those were strong enough 1st singles for her to launch a whole new era with. A single with the magnitude of “Single Ladies” is what Beyoncé needs and I think she knows that, which explains her going back to make sure her album is perfect. So props to her for not wanting to release just anything. Quality work takes time and I’m willing (I don’t have a choice) to wait. I can see her dropping 3rd or 4th quarter of this year. BTW don't be surpirse if none of the songs I mentioned above doesn't make the new album.
