With Future’s highly anticipated sophomore album coming out this Tuesday, he releases the video for the hit “I Won” with Kanye. Directed by Hype Williams, the same guy in charge of the YEEZUS film hopefully coming out soon, this video flexes Future and Kanye chillin’ on the beach with some dimes. The song features Future’s unique singing and an OK verse from Yeezy, both addressing their significant others. Thought Kanye could’ve added a little more to the singing aspect but then again he does what he wants. Look for Future’s Honest album sometime soon.
Just cuz it’s Easter Weekend doesn’t mean we’r easing up on the tunes for this weekend. All of you can be hungover for Sunday, deal with it. Between Steve Aoki and Crywolf we got practically every kind of party song here. Have fun people and do something worth telling.
With all this nice weather comes nice music. Bring back this track from 2004 and this awesome remix by Kartell. Go ahead and master that crip walk and vibe to “Drop It Like It’s Hot”. The song features probably the best Pharrell verse ever and I wish he would bring back a little of this street-style. This song was Pharrell’s biggest hit up until last year with “Get Lucky”. Produced by The Neptunes too which will be helping Pusha T out with his new album King Push. The video also won best music video in Australia in 2006. Enjoy the Thursday guys. TBT
Everyone knows about Donald Glover’s new album Because the Internet and his history of having emotional problems within himself. Watching this very creative video I think displays the discussion going on inside his head 24/7. Basically this song is about him looking at himself both positively and negatively. At least that’s what I see. It could be interpreted many different ways. Check it out and see what you think. Then go watch the “3005″ video with Abella Anderson again.
Writing for these “Me & My Headphones” gets more difficult every week. I don’t really have anything to say except listen to the music below. Each week we get tons of submissions and hundreds of songs are released every week. These are the best ones that we found and think will heighten your weekend. I tried to keep it small this weekend so that many it wasn’t so overwhelming and the quality is better. Please let us know what you think but liking the post or sharing. You should grab all these songs and follow the artists that made them. Good shit – have a good weekend! [Update] Fuck it, adding more songs you guys should have. You’re welcome.
For the biggest hip hop fans on the east coast, this is probably the biggest concert around. Drake’s OVO Fest is your other best option but the tickets at this point are incredibly high. Saw some girl actually offer to have sex with someone for good seats. So yah, scratch that. Anyways, the crowds and performances for this festival have been pretty monumental. Hot 97 has been doing this for a long time now and each year they draw some of the best poets of hip hop from around the country. This year will feature two stages and artists like Nas, 50 Cent, Lil’ Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Ink, Childish Gambino, and more will be in attendance. Still not the knockout line-up hip hop fans are looking for but it will be a party all day in MetLife Stadium no doubt. Tickets are on sale now so don’t waste time!
