Video: “Tuesday (PropaneLv x Chi Duly Remix) by ILOVEMAKONNEN & Drake

A couple weeks ago, Chi Duly released his remix to Tuesday and, in my opinion, ended the race to produce the best remix to this song. Chi Duly is sort of an unknown producer who loves to work on hip hop and R&B songs to add an extra boost to them. This remix perfectly exemplifies that.

PropaneLv is a minor rapper that I’ve been following for awhile. He fails to be consistent but when he comes out with something real good it’s Grade A. PropaneLv adds a much need sexual characteristic to this song while matching the up-beat tempo of Chi Duly’s remix. These two have worked together before. If you like what you hear, check out their SoundCloud’s below.

Album: “Vibes” by Theophilus London [Full Stream]

Theophilus-London - Vibes - pumpthebeat.com

Lots of talk about this sophomore album from Trinidad-born rapper, Theophilus London. For the CuDi fans out there, I think this is what we wish he would be doing these days. It’s smooth hip hop and dark R&B all in one. Besides the timeless track “Can’t Stop”, this record sports tons of songs you can immediately attach to.

Doesn’t get much better than this… and Kanye West underlines the sound on every track. That’s what you get with a dope feature and expert production. Theophilus explained that everyone and everything that brought this album together just set the right ‘vibe’. This is new age meets old school hip hop. Vibes makes a strong case for hip hop album of the year.

Video: DJ Craze sends a message with NEW SLAVES ROUTINE #RealDJing

DJ Craze really cleared the air with this video. ‘DJ’ is a seriously abused term today. Real disc-jockeys are actually really rare and DJ Craze is a dying breed. I got to see him at Ultra in 2013 and he was unreal. This video proves that what most of you are paying money for is somewhat of a rip-off. I think it makes more sense to call them ‘producers’. Well done Craze.

Catch him on Halloween at Pier of Fear x BOO! in NYC. Should be insane and I’m sure he’ll put on for the blood thirsty crowd. See you there! #RealDJing

“Thats like the B-boy in me too. The reason I was good at battling and shit was because of this.When I get pissed off, I want to speak with the turntables and kill it.” – Craze

News: Lil’ Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Officially Pushed Back – Release Date Unknown

Tha Carter V Lil' Wayne - pumpthebeat.com

Hold up. We knew it was all coming but it’s official now. Young Money president announced that Lil’ Wayne’s ‘last’ album is pushed back. It was supposed to drop today but with lack of news and no pre-order for the LP on iTunes, it was fair to say that this was bound to happen. I still haven’t listened to the singles… eating away at me.

After the jump you can see a tracklist someone uploaded. Looks legit but there’s no “Grindin'”. He had an album listening party tonight but otherwise it’s been relatively quiet for Wayne. I like the move to find a new release date. Remember how many times Tha Carter III was pushed back? Yah. We’ll let you know more when the hear somethin’.

“Make It Work” by Tyga

"Make It Work" by Tyga - pumpthebeat.com

For anyone caught up with hip hop right now, you might be familiar with the shit surrounding Tyga and Young Money. Basically, Tyga came out in an interview with Vibe and said he’s not cool with Drake and Nicki Minaj and YMCMB is really pissing him off. His relationship with Lil’ Wayne is the only thing holding him at bay it seems but for how much longer? Tyga has threatened to leak the album that he’s put so much hard work into.

“Make It Work” is I guess a new single for his upcoming album The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. It’s speculated as a Drake diss because the two have been quietly beefing. Also, some thought that the reason Drake was so pissed in D.C. is because Tyga’s crew punched his DJ. Video is pretty funny.

The album is set for a November 18th release date but who knows what’s going to happen. TGA: 18th Dynasty is exec. produced by Kanye West but has received minimal attention for what it has potential to be. Maybe all this shit going on will help Tyga…

Release Date: November 18th
