The YMCMB crew is ready to take 2014 by storm. The group’s recently announced compilation album, Rise Of An Empire is set to drop March 11th and now has official artwork. The project will feature Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga, as well other YMCMB affiliates. On a side note, Lil Wayne is expected to release, Tha Carter V on May 5th. It’s gonna be a YMCMB takeover!
Here are a few new hot tracks to bump this weekend:
Lil Wayne follows up his weak Grammy performance with some hot new music for DJ Clue of Power 105.1. Grab a bottle and celebrate! #YMCMB
Earlier this week, Wiz dropped “Work Hard, Play Hard,” the first single from his sophomore album, “O.N.I.F.C.” The track was produced by Stargate (“Black and Yellow”) and Benny Bianco. It’s clear Wiz’s hometown (Pittsburgh) is where people work hard and play hard. If this isn’t your anthem this weekend, you ain’t on your grind!
50 Cent is getting ready to drop an upcoming Gangsta Grillz mixtape, The Lost Tape, with DJ Drama. There’s no doubt that this hot new track with Snoop & Precious Paris will be one of the best!
And last but certainly not least, Bow Wow releases his latest single from Underrated. With a feature from T-Pain, you can’t go wrong. #Underrated June 12th.
With Drake’s single doing so well, it’s about time we got the visuals. The dynamic relationship between Drake and Rihanna has always been interesting. Don’t you think they’d make a sexy couple?
New music video from one of the newer members of YMCMB and Cash Money Records, Mystikal. Yes, the Mystikal from the hit Shake Ya Ass is back and on one of the hottest labels in the hip hop game. Much like most artists on YMCMB, they always come through with a collaboration with the Birdman and/or Lil Wayne. Mystikal got both on this joint for an absolute dope song and video. The name of the song is Original which will also be the name of Mystikal’s debut LP with Cash Money Records.
No, you did not read that headline wrong. On February 24th, Cash Money Records announced they had signed their newest artist: Limp Bizkit. In a recent interview with XXL, Birdman explained the signing of this band that reached it’s pinnacle success back in 1999-2001 but has since re-emerged as a band with a new direction and it’s two most recent albums, The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) & Gold Cobra which have received mixed to positive reviews. Keep an eye out for Limp’s new single which will of course feature Cash Money mogul Lil Wayne that Birdman assures the world will be “hot.”
New video from TygaTyga for his song In This Thang off his most recent mixtape that came out back in early December 2011 titled #BitchImTheShit. The song is a banger and the video certainly does it justice. I’ve always been a fan of the whole camera-strapped-to-the-body-and-facing-the-person shot. It works well in this video too because it keeps Tyga in the focus as this wild party goes on in the backdrop. It’s also a good shot to show someone dazed or in disbelief. If you haven’t downloaded #BitchImTheShit, do it now because this mixtape is dope. Also, Tyga’s album Careless World: Rise of the Last King comes out next Tuesday, February 21st. This is his second album but his first signed to Young Money so be sure to cop that album.
There has been quite a buzz about Honey Cocaine over the last couple of months. You may have heard her featured on Tyga’s “Heisman” and other track’s put out by the Last King, as well as numerous viral videos. It looks like her time is now; 2 days ago Honey Cocaine released her first official project, #FuckYoFeelings. Let me be the first to tell you, this shit is bangin! With a similar flow to Tyga man, is it safe to call her “The Last Queen?” Check out one of the hottest tracks on the tape, you may recognize the beat!
Check out Nicki Minaj’s highly anticipated third single off her sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. After recently being pushed back, the new album is slated for an April 3rd release. There’s no doubt that the album will be packed by bangers like this, but it will be hard to match Pink Friday. Radio station are going to be jumping on this track real soon, trust me!
