My good friends,It has truly been too long. I assume you're all keeping well and making the most of this year that has been given to us. Today is the day to begin sharing my newest work with you. This is the first single off of my upcoming album. I feel sometimes that people don't have enough information about my beginnings and therefore they make up a life story for me that isn't consistent with actual events. My family and my second family (consisting of the best friends anybody could ever have) all struggled and worked extremely hard to make all this happen. I did not buy my way into this spot and it was the furthest thing from easy to achieve. I am proud of every part of my past and I'm excited for this song to find a place in your life as well. I didn't feel I needed any interviews or radio or press to launch this song. It felt right to come back to the site that I started on and release it to the people that started here with me. Judging by this post, the tour that we've been planning, the conversations about new songs and album artwork...I think it's safe to say we're back together again. Looking forward to seeing you all soon."You don't have to ask me how I'm doing...just listen to the music" - K.Samir
While 2011 was still young, The Weeknd released his first mixtape under an unknown identity and caught the world by surprise. Less than two years later we have his mainstream "debut" titled Trilogy. It consists of his first three mixtape mastered plus three new tracks all for just $9.99 (on iTunes). One of the new tracks, "Twenty Eight", is actually free for download on iTunes for a week.
It's a steal.
I was feeling so bummed today about not being able to see Blaine Gabbert and the Jaguars work the Texans today. Driving to Jacksonville I wondered if this was going to be the story of my life. Am I going to miss Blackmon's first career touchdown and season stiff arm? Blaine shouting out woah there followed by another explicit?
These thoughts were depressing, but it looks like I have an angel watching me from the other side. New Drake. Life is good. Not too many details here, but if you checked out my post on Colin Munroe and listened to his album you'll notice the track "Where Were You". At first I thought this was remix of Colin's, but something tells there's more to its story. Possibly a demo/reference.
If I get any info I'll let you know.
UPDATE: Turns out Colin submitted this track to Drake for his album Thank Me Later but ended up on the cutting room floor.
Drake's involvement in Aaliyah's upcoming posthumous album is looking to be less of a rumor. This single that surfaced today was released by a firm directly linked to her. Now we're hearing that he is to be the executive producer for the project (to Timbaland's dismay).
Production by 40.
MMG and Meek drop the visuals for one of the best songs of 2012 so far. The video is a little sub par, but if you're down for a taste of some on the road rap-star action with a few cameos then you just might be in luck. This song is more than likely going to make an appearance on Meek Mill's album Dreams & Nightmares which comes out August 28.
