Follow @hearwax Fresh off his release of his trap banger “Hold Me Back”, Rozay has unveiled the official tracklisting from his upcoming record, God Forgives, I Don’t. Peep it below. That picture is frightening. Can’t wait for track 3.
Follow @hearwax My friend used to have a porn folder on his computer entitled “ZZZ Top”. That makes Aesop Rock‘s new video that much better. Skelethon drops July 10th.
Follow @hearwax It is hard to remember the last time a hip hop record had the hype that Watch The Throne has had up until its release. More than just a collaboration album between rap’s two biggest names – Jay-Z and Kanye West – it represents the possible beginning of a new age in high [...]
