Fresh Cut: Jay-Z – Song Cry x Dueces (DJ Green Lantern Mix)

leave a comment »


Chris Brown’s Dueces is a pretty hot song and now DJ Green Lantern has remixed it with Jay-Z’s Song Cry. The irony here is that there is apparent beef between CBreezy and Jay after the Rihanna incident, who knows, who cares, just enjoy!

Fresh Cut: Kanye West ft. RZA, Jay-Z, Pusha T, Swizz Beatz & CyHi Da Prynce – So Appalled

leave a comment »

Ye x Jay x Pusha on one track?!? Cot damn, this is fucking ridiculous shit right here! IMO, Jay killed it, Kanye 2nd, Pusha T 3rd, and CyHi did this thing. I’m looking forward to big things from him, but can someone please tell Swizz to stop rapping or even speaking on tracks, it’s getting out of control.

Fresh Cut: Willow Smith – Whip My Hair

with 3 comments


Will & Jada Smith’s daughter, Willow, is about to become a superstar. Jay-Z and the parents confirmed on Ryan Seacreast’s show this morning that Willow is now signed to Roc Nation. BTW, she’s only 9 years old. That is amazing and her new song is HOT, enjoy!

I heard the record first before I knew it was recorded by a nine year old. I knew it was a smash. Jay Brown said she was 9 and I said Whoa!… then he said she’s Will & Jada’s daughter and I said Whoa! Whoa! and it went from there. I met Willow out in Japan and the first thing she said was “I’m really nervous” and I thought that maturity explained exactly how she was feeling. I knew right then she was a star. – Jay-Z

Fresh Cut: Jay-Z feat Chris Martin – Most Kingz (DJ Green Lantern Mix)

leave a comment »

Always a breath of fresh air, even if it’s old. via Jay did both verses from this Flex’s show in October of 2006. “Most Kings” was the Jean-Michel Basquiat inspired song that was set to be on Kingdom Come, but that never saw the light of day.  Around that time, DJ Green Lantern was Jay’s DJ and he even released “Corporate Takeover” on one of his mixtape (which was the other verse from that legendary Funkmaster Flex freestyle.) These bars mostly ended up on Jay’s “Lost” remix for Coldplay.

it’s tough being Bobby Brown, cuz to be Bobby then, you have to be Bobby now

I‘m in heaven right now! Listening to this dope song and blogging from Harry’s Tap Room. I can’t wait for the full 5 track album! BTW, can people PLEASE leave Nicki Minaj off of tracks, she’s depressing me.

Cot damn, these bastards are back (again)!!! Jigga and ‘Ye go in HARD and MURDER this beat, while Swizz mixes in Snap’s “I’ve Got The Power” to complete the first official remix. Fuck dope, this is just INSANITY!!!

Now everything I’m rhymin’ on cause a Ramadan
Been a don, prayin’ for the families lost in the storm
Bring our troops back from Iraq, keep our troops out of Iran
So the next couple bars, I’ma drop them in Islam
They say as-salamu alaikum, wa alaikum asalaam
That’s no Oscar Mayer bacon, you should run and tell your moms
Now the question is, how we gon’ stop the next Vietnam?
Keep Flex out of Korea, ’cause you know he drop bombs
