The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

There seems to be a bit of aggression in the air this week. Maybe the advent of spring has everyone a bit antsy -- certainly the artists who make up our 5 Best Songs Of The Week seem to feel that way. Nicki Minaj continued growling her way toward her new album, while Savages engaged… More »

Nicki Minaj – “Yasss Bish!!” (Feat. Soulja Boy)

Following "Lookin Ass Nigga" and Chi-Raq," Nicki Minaj has released another hype track to promote her upcoming third solo album. "Yasss Bish!!" was produced by and features Soulja Boy and it's another ferociously hard song that's in line with Minaj's promise to drop the glossy pop that dominated a lot of her sophomore album.

Jay Electronica – “We Made It” (Feat. Jay Z)

Last year, Drake heard a track on a recent Soulja Boy mixtape and freestyled over it, and the result was "We Made It," arguably the most purely fun song of Drizzy's entire career. Meanwhile, the reclusive rap cult hero Jay Electronica reemerged last week with a new song called "Better In Tune With The Infinite."… More »

Drake – “Trophies” & “We Made It Freestyle (Feat. Soulja Boy)”

Last month Drake promised four or five new songs before New Year's, and two of them arrived over the weekend as free downloads, a pair of triumphant, trumpet-laden tracks called "Trophies" and "We Made It Freestyle." The former is a Rocky-reminiscent Hit-Boy production that transfuses Drake's trademark passive aggression into a victory lap that would… More »

Purity Ring – “Grammy” (Soulja Boy Cover)

I thought that the biggest head-scratcher of the day would go to Beck and his enormous cover of "Sound And Vision" but I believe the honor goes to Purity Ring for their rendition of Soulja Boy's "Grammy" -- bonus points for such a timely release. The one-off applies the band's ambient pop to Soulja's original… More »

Matt & Kim, Soulja Boy, Andrew W.K. – “I’m A Goner” Video

In addition to allocating corporate funds to underwrite "I'm A Goner," created and produced by Matt & Kim and featuring Andrew W.K. and Souja Boy, Converse gave director Rodney Ascher the means to make it a video.

Matt & Kim, Soulja Boy, & Andrew W.K. – “I’m A Goner”

Matt & Kim & Soulja Boy & Andrew W.K. are the latest triple-billing for Converse's corporately underwritten original MP3 project "Three Artists, One Song." (Previously: Julian Casablancas, Santigold, and Pharrell; later, Best Coast, Kid Cudi, and Rostam.) Matt produced. The project attempts to fuse these three artists styles, but succeeds in fusing together these three… More »
