Well this is just awesome.. and most of you probably have no idea why.. not because of how sick Curren$y is over this beat, but where the beat is actually from. This is originally from 16 years ago when Shaquille O'neal, yes SHAQ (aka the Big Diesel / Big Cactus / Superman.. etc) teamed up with Biggie for the song "Can't Stop the Reign." They killed this beat back then and I am so glad to hear it again..
Listen to and download BOTH songs below.

This song is sure to be on the radio in a matter of weeks / months or however long you want to give it. It will be a hit in no time. A couple of my friends are traveling abroad right now in Europe and some of them are going to see Calvin Harris tonight in Ibiza and they told me to look out for this guy and the music he is coming out with because he is going to blow up. And what do you know, I found this song by Calvin and Rihanna popping up everywhere today all over the internet and it is amazing. Listen to it and you will agree with me that this will be a hit soon.

What's up ya'll. Been a hot second since I have last checked in. I can see that my man Deane Flow has added some new writers to the site , TronnFlow and Rose Flow, who have already impressed me and earned my co-sign. Like I said a few posts ago, I'm going to be doing a guest post every once in a while with some stuff I would put up here if I had more time.
I've said a few times before that I'm a huge fan of the new series How To Make It in America that premiered on HBO last year. HBO's hip, smart series How to Make It in America is a snapshot of the beating heart of young ambition and energy in New York City. The show is about two young entrepreneurs, Cam and Ben, are their goal to essentially make it in NYC by creating a clothing line : Crisp NYC. Made by the same people who brough you Entourage, HTMIA is essentially Entourage before Vince gets big. The show illustrates the ups and downs of starting you're own company, relationships, and friendship. I think this show can be a huge success.
The video above is part of HBO's promotional strategy to push the show, which comes back on Oct. 2nd for season 2. Deane Flow put up the mixtape the other day, which came courtesy of Scott Vener, the musical supervisor for HTMIA, Entoruage, and 90210 ( @brokemogul ) . Now, everyone and their mother loved the song "Barbra Streisand" by Duck Sauce when it came out. Scott teams Duck Sauce up with one of the most lovable characters in the show Luis Guzman (Rastaaaa Monstaaaa) to create an awesome video. Featuring cameo's from Mark Wahlberg, Pharrell, Justin Bieber, Asher Roth, Rahzel, Q-Tip, Pusha T, etc. and all the characters from the show. Check out the video and will post the mp3 whenever I can. If you want to follow up on the show, hit up the links below!

Yesterday Radical Something dropped their unbelievable debut album titled We Are Nothing. I wanted to post it yesterday but I was really busy and didn't get a chance to give it a good listen, so I figured I'd wait until now. Well after two complete run throughs of the tracks, I'm going to recommend you all download this album. For those who don't know, Radical Something is the group that consists of Loggy, Josh Cocktail, and producer DJ Big Red. Combining Josh's ridiculously smooth vocals with Loggy's upbeat rhymes and Big Red's skills on the boards, Radical Something always releases hits with that laid back, summer vibe that everyone knows and loves. Loggy, Josh, and Big Red have been kind enough to release the album for free, but you can support the Radicals and head over to iTunes to buy the album as well. Check it out below and enjoy!

Well everyone and their mother has rapped over this Popular beat. I know Deane Flow posted someone else rapping over this beat back in August and he mention Huey Mack had done it as well but I thought I'd toss this up here because honestly this post is mostly about this other song... The song Hope Solo came out right after the Women's World Cup and im surprised it hasn't been posted here yet. Listen to the first 17 seconds and you will understand why I love this song. Its hilarious, clever, has a good beat and yet SOOO true. Shes hot what can i say??

J. Cole is back at it again with another smooth rap over a nice beat. And apparently Missy is back from the dead.. or a Weight Watchers class.... who knows. Regardless, they come together on this chill song and kill it. You will love listening to this song just hangin around and youre gonna put this on repeat. Enjoy.
