Ty Dolla $ign “Stand For”

Lots of Ty Dolla’s in the video to his catchy new single. I like Ty$’ flow in this one at times, but the trailing off needs some more listens to fully catch on with me. Now that the video’s here, that might happen.

Produced by Diplo & DJ Dahi. Free TC‘s first single.


Chris Brown “X” (prod. Diplo)

It’s the title track for Chris Brown‘s upcoming album, X, finally slated for release on September 16th. And naturally, the singer sings about his “ex” but I just can’t keep up on which one it is now. There’s literally reports and photos showing Chris & Karrueche together and then Rihanna showing up to watch Chris play in a charity basketball game last nite. So is life for Chris Brown, ha. Gossip aside, the song itself is actually pretty good too. Brown’s vocals boom over a not so usual production for this type of song by none other than Diplo. He even gets a solo spot to shine too. I can see this making some noise in the mainstream so get accustomed now:

Frank Ocean, Mick Jones & Paul Simonon “Hero” (prod. Diplo)

Here is how I want to see Frank Ocean in the headlines. Not when my favorite food joint sues him… for new music!

Frank Ocean takes part in Converse’s “Three Artists, One Song” series, which ironically sees him collab with Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, and Diplo for a total of 4 artists. The latter produces it, but it’s not an uptempo cut that you would expect. It’s nice to hear Ocean’s voice after so long, but I wasn’t quick to eat up “Hero”. Listen/download below.

Auggie the 9th “Punch Drunk In Love” f/ Mr. GoodBar

Another dope drop by Auggie the 9th as he prepares for his upcoming project #PeoplesCourtDirectorsCut. The second release from the project, “Punch Drunk In Love”, is a remix to Diplo’s rendition of Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” that also features Mr. Goodbar, which also appeared on Auggie’s #GAWS mixtape. These releases come in due time as Auggie prepares for his first headlining show this weekend, a dope show that will benefit many with the donation of comic books to the Comics For Heroes organization. More details on Auggie’s show below.
