Tuesday Roundup

Once again, you may have seen a lack of updates on the site the past couple of days. We were undergoing some site updates even though we were still live and running. Now that we’re back live and running I got your roundup of Tuesday’s new content right here!

I actually thought it would be natural to start with the albums that were released today. I like all 3 of these artists and the albums of which I’ve previewed already — Jhene Aiko Souled Out, Lecrae Anomaly, and Banks Goddess are all in stores now! Be sure to listen and support, and then scroll below for more new videos, songs, and Monday’s Roundup as well!

VIDEOS

I thought it appropriate to start with Pharrell’s appearance on CNN, talking about the Ferguson situation a few weeks past now. He thinks President Obama should come to Ferguson — do you agree? Sound off here, then see some more big names below: Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj, Common, Sam Smith & A$AP Rocky, and more.

Rich Boy f/ Game “Ridin Thru My City” (prod. Hit-Boy)

It’s been a minute since I’ve heard some Rich Boy, but I’ll forever enjoy his “Ghetto Rich” collab with John Legend. Here, Rich Boy links with Hit-Boy (ha!) who produced this track back in 2009, citing Mr. X, and gets a verse from Game on this track that seems fitting for a windows-down cruise. Not bad all the way around, but I’ve enjoyed other work by all three parties more for sure too.

Beyonce f/ Nicki Minaj “Flawless”

A Saturday night BOMB from Beyonce.

Out of nowhere the Queen lets loose of a new track featuring a guest rap verse from Nicki Minaj on “Flawless”. Ladies, here’s you’re new “I’m the sh*t” anthem. And right away, Beyonce addresses the “elevator incident” with hubby Jay and sissy Solange:

Of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.

As for Nicki, she puts down a multitude of flows in her guest verse, slowing things down, speeding things up, and delivering things weird like only she can. “Flawless” shows Beyonce & Nicki near pique aggressiveness and if that’s your cup of tea, you’ll likely enjoy.
