Kay Slay remixes > Khaled remixes, even if Pap has to waste a bar wishing he could bring Rem back...

Shouts to BoBO for the heads up!

Ciara In Vibe

NSFW image swiped from The Rap Up. Apparently Ciara bears it all for the cover (well, aside from some heels), as well as opens up in the article. For more, The YBF has some snippets from the interview.

Robin Thicke Something Else Cover

In stores/online on September 30th. That red is kind of blinding.

6th Sense "Entourage (Oh Yeah!)"

[video] Sarah Palin's 2008 RNC Speech

I'm not a fan of this VPILF's politics, but she was kind of raw in this speech:

I still don't get how she can beef with Obama over experience, but to each their own. Like Latarian said, "Go Obama, Go Obama!"

DivaSpeakTV: Episode 25

LL Cool J "We Rollin'"

LL Cool J "We Rollin'": Another leak from Exit 13, LL hits a fresh late summer banger for your whips. I could see a lot of cats praying for an Indian summer, just so they can put the top down, scoop up their shorty, and rock to this one before the Fall.

Bonus Beats: "Ringtone Murder" (ft. Grandmaster Caz) [via 2DB] & "Like A Radio" (ft. Ryan Leslie) [via Nah Right]

Lauryn Hill "World Is A Hustle"

pH10 "Enter The Underground"

pH10 ft. Pete Miser & Jamalski "Enter The Underground": Some twisted Drum & Bass for your Wednesday freakfests. This comes from pH10's forthcoming Well Connected LP, which should be a great representation of live Jungle music coming from the States. Some call them the sound of the Beastie Boys being influenced by Slayer, but I just call it ill.

Unreleased Cool Kids Tracks

Straight up and down, I'm not the biggest fan of The Cool Kids. "Black Mags" is my favorite joint of theirs, and the first I heard (and I know there's a dubstep remix of it milling about...); anyways, the boy Optimus Prime of The Trolley Stop hit me with two cuts that he and Shogun leaked from an old CD they found in the crates, so all props go to them.

When I get more of these, I'll post them up.

I'm loving Dallas' vlogs:

The East Flatbush Project "Thirsty"

The East Flatbush Project ft. Mirage Black & Stress "Thirsty": I told you guys that EFP were still doing it. Mirage Black & Stress catch wreck over "Nights Over Egypt", and this will be a perfect joint to play during your BBQs today. Might have to crank this one up today...


Bone Thugs-N-Harmony ft. 2Pac vs. DJ Chamberweed "Thug Luv (DJ Nappy THUGSTEP Refix)": At my mom's Long Island Iced Tea-drenched cookout, my Aunt Zina wanted me to throw on one of her Bone Thugs Greatest Hits CDs. I had CD1 on, which had the classics, and "Thug Luv" popped on. Such a fresh collaboration, but when you hear Chamberweed's "350 Wolverine", with that rapid fire kick that comes in, and hear the Bone niggas rippin' it, its a marriage made in Thug Heaven. Pac sounds like a war general on this one, too.

Happy Labor Day!
