Wale spoke about his collaboration with Chip in a Complex interview:
"Like I just did a song with Chip Tha Ripper with no questions asked—no money or calling managers. It was just understood. I could be doing no features.

Nas - Nasty [New Video]

When we hear the name Nas, we think classic. We think Illmatic, we think N.Y. State of Mind. Nas is just a real N.Y. rapper and has been on the backburner of mainstream social media, as we have seen watched him over the past 10 years take a backseat to old-rival-turned-friend, Jay-Z who basically has taken over the media scene.

Nas visually shows you in this video what his career record spells out: After 15+ years of rap, and being "God's son" in the hip-hop community, he is still with his hood. (Despite Lil Wayne's humble beginnings and a now big commercial name, would he shoot a music video in Hollygrove, New Orleans?) There's no place like home.

EDIT: The full-length Lil Wayne PSA has gone completely private on his channel, so check out this clip instead:
video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

Seems the death of Steve Jobs struck a chord in the dude Weezy, and talks a little bit of about his morality and past drugs use. He speaks of his philosophy, and his past habits, as well his work ethic and past prescriptions, his tattoos, his skateboarding...The original video, which goes in full detail on these subjects (as well as his YoungMoney Discover card...) is no longer available.

Snoop Dogg x 12th Planet x Flux (and more) - Throw Your Dubs Up [Mixtape] [New Music]

Snoop Dogg. This is one guy dedicated to his tree since day one... he has brought us hip-hop classics, and now he has brought us among the first mixtapes to feature a Rap/Dubstep fusion. If you thought Snoop's age has closed his mind to this new genre, think again. I really feel this mixtape, even though I don't enjoy all of its tracks. I feel this mixtape because I feel the genre evolving, and I think its only a matter of time until the US catches onto this...  Download it >exclusively here< or download individual tracks below. The tracks I think would be most enjoyed are as follows, but by all means download the mixtape and make your own opinions.

Download: Smoke Some - Problem x Dream

Download:  Platinum Remix - Snoop Dogg ft. R. Kelly and Busta Rhymes x Lex Luger

Download: Be Like Me (Remix) - Snoop Dogg ft P Money, D Double E & Professor Green x True Tiger

Kendrick Lamar - Cloud 10 [New Music] and Behind the Scenes [Video]

Windows isn't sleeping on Kendrick, why should you? Lamar brings you "Cloud 10", a Windows sponsored track, and part of "Me Series", that Windows is bringing to life. Looks to me as if Windows is jumping on the music scene, where most people are hanging out, to try to gain more consumers for their phone. iPhone competition in the works? (Doubtful)

Check out the behind the scenes, Windows-sponsored look into Kendrick Lamar's beginnings and song-choices:

Busta Rhymes - Niggas in Paris [Remix] [New Music]

Download: Niggas in Paris (Remix) - Busta Rhymes 

Quite possibly ones of the most sought-out collaborators in hip-hop within the past year, it just isn't a remix without a Busta Rhyme's verse. It's one verse coming from Busta in this Watch the Throne remix (something not many have attempted).
