Zedd turns that sucky song by Magic! and makes it awesome

You made it a hot song, I made it a hotter remix… Zedd, who I met during the Super Bowl, takes the popular (but bo-ring) pop song “Rude” by Magic! and turns it into a hot remix. Perfect for the elliptical at the gym.

J. Cole releases “Be Free” as a tribute to Michael Brown and Ferguson

I’m sure you know all about the tragedy of Michael Brown and what’s going on in Ferguson. From the death of a young man to police retaliation and journalists getting jailed, it’s a shocking and sad state of affairs. Yesterday, I posed the question of hip-hop’s commentary (or lack thereof) in what’s going on. As the voice of young black and brown kids, hip-hop needs to take a stand. I got a lot of Twitter response and today, J. Cole put out a track called “Be Free.”

“Be Free” is a heart-wrenching song and you can hear Cole’s emotions pouring out. I really respect Jermaine and the whole Dreamville team for doing this. It’s easy to forget your roots once you become a big star and J. Cole hasn’t. Also, make sure to read Killer Mike’s heartfelt words dedicated to the Brown family.

Action Bronson is awesome and weird on “Easy Rider”

At a time when everyone and their mama seems to be trying to capture a sound (You know what I’m talking about), I love when artists go left and do some weird shit. Kudos to Action Bronson for dropping the awesome single “Easy Rider” from his forthcoming album Mr. Wonderful.
