Remy Ma “Wake Me Up” ft. Lil’ Kim Diss or Nah

The Track is HOTTTTTTT, but the Fans are barking…… What’s your thoughts on Remy Ma “Wake Me Up” ft. Lil’ Kim?

Jake Shears, “Creep City” is a Staff Fav

Shockingly enough, this song has made our playlist and is on repeat. Sooooo, naturally we had to share it with you!


Hello Friends and Family! It’s been awhile.  Like—a long while.  But lord, I’ve been missing you guys.  Like—REALLY MISSING YOU.  I’ve missed playing shows for you in funky clothes that I look back later and say: “What in God’s name was I thinking?” I’ve missed sweating on the front row.  I’ve missed everybody singing along and whooping it up.

Above all else, I’ve missed putting out new music.  And that, my dear friends, changes today!  Let me introduce you to Creep City.

Creep City is a pretty theatrical jam, with quite a few twists and turns. It has all the touchstones of the sound I’ve been conjuring. It’s a song about being in a literally scary transition, reflecting a moment of my life when I found myself without my long time co-horts, without New York City, having to reassess my surroundings.

I’ve not put out much out the last five years, (musically that is) other than a collaboration here or there. The thing is, I’ve been working this whole time.  But I promised myself that I would only put something out if it was really good. I mean REALLY good. There were a few years that I didn’t quite know what I wanted to say, unsure of direction, but I had faith if I kept at it, all would be revealed.

In the fall of 2015, I moved to New Orleans part-time. I needed a change of scene, and it’s a city I’ve always wanted to live in. I went down and began writing there and something funny happened: The good stuff started coming. And it kept coming. With the help of many talented musicians, I’ve been able to create the record I’ve been shooting for my whole life. It’s not only the most personal thing I’ve made, I truly believe it’s the best thing I’ve made. There was a moment in time,  that I really wasn’t interested in making a solo record. I found the notion a little cheesy. But I was talking with a friend one day and he said: “There’s no issue with you making a solo record– as long as it’s fantastic.”  I took that to heart.

There’s so much more to come in the next year, but I couldn’t wait any longer to give you a taste. If you want to hear more, I’ll be playing it all in NYC on Nov 12th at Elsewhere (tix here), and in London Nov 14th at Heaven (tix here). Please come, I want to celebrate with you.

And my time hasn’t been spent just making music. I’ve also  completed another labor of love that I’ll share details on shortly. AND will soon be announcing another way that we can spend a couple hours in a room together in a way that we’ve never done before. It’s the big ‘ol slew of stuff.

So I invite you to come along with me in my new ride. It’s gonna be a little different, but isn’t it always?  For those of you who have been waiting patiently, I have a feeling that this is gonna do the trick and then some. The cool thing, is that we’ve already had so many great times together, and as the saying goes: “You can’t make old friends.”

The world is upside down right now. In the thick of it, I feel that we still need tunes that make us smile, that make us wanna sing and dance like fools. The power of coming together and finding some common ground can’t be underestimated. Let’s have some goddamn fun.

I love you,

Jake Shears

Rae Sremmurd slays Cayler & Sons

Get into the latest in Fashion as Rae Sremmurd sets the trend with Cayler & Sons.  This cooperation marks the second time the Munich-based streetwear label has joined forces with the iconic rap duo, whose anthems like “Black Beatles” or “No Type” (among many others) have amassed a casual 1.8 billion views on YouTube alone. The two brothers from Tupelo, Mississippi have long eclipsed the status as a household name in rap, conquering Billboard’s Hot 100 #1 spot and holding it down for weeks.

The campaign’s photos, shot during Rae Sremmurd’s sold out SremmLife II Tour through Europe, capture the characteristic energy that the fashion-savvy brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi bring to each and every one of their performances while showing off highlights from CAYLER & SONS’ spring/summer ’17 collection as well as the newly launched All Day Denim program.
Check out the visuals and let us know what you will be buying as we get ready for Spring and Summer 2017.

Birdman Wiles The Breakfast Club

In case you missed it this morning, please get into it.

Babeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, can we get into this???? The team has talked and here is what we have to say.

  1. Why Birdman being a THUG at 98 Years Old?
  2. Did he really need 23 Goons with him?
  3. Charlamagne bad skin having ass was scared.
  4. DJ Envy was on chill mode and ready to laugh.
  5. Angela Yee acted like she was really excited for this late ass interview.The_Breakfast_Club
  6. Bird just did this to amplify his already late upcoming album.
  7. Who was his boo thing standing to his left??? He was cute tho.
  8. Why did he even have a seat if he knew he was bout to leave? Was it suppose to add to the drama?
  9. Who the fukkkkkkk cares if he mad?
  10. We wanna see him try this on Hot Boy Turk, Trick Daddy, or Rozay.

The moral of the story is………..

Dear Birdman, you are not a thug. The way in which you presented yourself today was that of a late ass coon. You fail to realize that no one cares about you. You use others to keep you relevant. Though you may have a CHECK that’s bout all you got. You so BOLD, pay Turk, Wayne, Rozay and ERBODY else what you owe them.

We feel for you. We feel that you need for attention has become desperation. You are a Lame. Have a seat and bring Jacquees to the front with his FINE ass.

Jacquees-and-birdman

As we come to a close, Birdman, we just have one question…… You Mad Bro???
