Rick Ross- 3 Kings Feat. Dr. Dre & Jay-Z

Speaking of huge collabs... "3 Kings" off Ross' upcoming God Forgives, I Don't out July 31st.

Talib Kweli- Push Thru (Feat. Curren$y & Kendrick Lamar)

These are the collabs I dream about. "Push Thru" features a soulful production from S1 (of Kanye's song "Power") with Kweli spitting a typical conscious flow alongside two of the best lyricists out right now ever. This is one you will need to run back a few times.

Kendrick Lamar- "Swimming Pools (Drank)"

Kendrick Lamar drops what seems to be the second single (after Dr. Dre's "The Recipe") off of his much hyped Oct. 2nd debut album good kid, m.A.A.d. city. With "Swimming Pools" Kendrick squeezes a captivating single out of a fairly dark and reflective topic in a way that only he can. The awesomely spacey beat and intricate production act as a nice little spoonfull of sugar to help the potent medicine of K-dots verses go down. October 2nd can't come soon enough.

Chance The Rapper - Burn This City

After recently reaching 8,000 twitter followers Chance The Rapper drops his verse to "Burn The City" from the recent Odd Couple mixtape Separated At Birth. This single verse better than the full song if you ask me, Chance just takes over anything he's featured on. Get your replay buttons ready.

The Foodchain - Young Amsterdam

Denver hip-hop group/collective The Foodchain drops the second installment of their newly launched weekly #SUMMERSERIES. Their track "Young Amsterdam" complete with the vinyl popping in the background is about as smooth as it gets. Highly hip-hop and tree oriented. Check out last weeks song "Gone" as well as others over at the foodchain soundcloud.

The kid Mac Miller links up with Casey Veggies and Joey Badass to get a little patriotic (...kinda) and drop some pretty sweet visuals for their 4th of July released video "America".

Curren$y - Showroom [Official Video]

Spitta takes us through the showroom in his new video the off The Stoned Immaculate. Definitely a favorite from the album with great lines referencing everything from his "home stylings" to how he's "dropping record after record like them bitches slippery".  Show em better than I can tell em, they gon' feel me.
