Wale is here another new track, this time produced by Travi$ Scott and featuring 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa. This new track is off of his up coming album The Gifted. The new album is set to drop June 25th.
Last night, Kelly Rowland wasted no time in pushing her new single with Wiz Khalifa "Gone", which she dropped earlier in the day, by performing it with Wiz and The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. This was my first impression of the song as Jodeci gave Kelly a glowing a review when we posted it yesterday. And it's an instant *Tibs Fav. I like the story and relatable emotions that Rowland expresses with Wiz adding the male perspective. The performance was nice as well, with The Roots' instrumentation acting as a great compliment too. Watch the performance above ICYMI last nite.
UPDATE: One more preview of Talk A Good Game, out June 18th, as Kelly reels in a featured verse from Pusha T and a smooth production from Pharrell. Her vocals boom on "Street Life" with Pusha doin his thing on the third verse. Press play on a radio rip below. Another solid *Tibs Fav.
A jam-packed collab off Wale's upcoming album, The Gifted, that has Travi$ Scott's now signature sound as the backdrop. It's a good fit for the flows of Wale, Chainz, & Wiz as they spit some raps on the mary ju wana. A slow-paced cut overall that hardcore fans of the artists involved will especially like. Bombs by Flex, for now.
First, the coolest of the news for Big Sean: he graces this mural in his hometown of Detroit with fellow D-Town artists Mike Posner, SAYITAINTTONE, and Earlly Mac. That's a "Mama we made it!" moment if I've ever seen one. The mural looks dope! Congrats to all the artist involved.
One more Big Sean note: he spoke with MTV about working with Eminem after it was revealed he was in the studio with him last month. Sean says the collab will be a "Detroit classic" and is not sure whose album it'll appear on just yet. Watch the interview below.
A couple more news and notes: DJ Paul confirmed to HHDX that some Three 6 Mafia members are reuniting for a new group called Da Mafia 6iX. They all are: Gangsta Boo, Koopsta Knicca, Lord Infamous and Crunchy Black. Here's DJ Paul on talking with Juicy J:
"Given his absence in the new group, Paul also added that he has remained on good terms and is often in contact with Juicy J though they no longer collaborate musically: “We still talk. But no, I’m not on his album and we haven’t did nothing musically. But we still talk because we still own all the companies together, we still get big checks together, so we still talk business stuff but I’m not on the album."

And finally, a picture below was on Pharrell's Facebook page today; a studio session with Wiz Khalifa, Akon, Kelly Rowland, and Amber Rose was there. I thought I saw a photo of this before, but nevertheless, here it is. Should be a good collab.
