On the final night of Drake’s OVO Fest in Toronto, Kanye West appeared as the fourth, and final, surprise guest of the night, performing “Pop Style” with Drake and solo hits, including “Father Stretch My Hands” and “Runaway.”
Kanye also made a special announcement: during a pause between songs, Ye asked the audience, “is y’all ready for this album?” Kanye had previously hinted at a collaborative album with Drake during an interview on The Breakfast Club in February 2015. Around the same time, Kanye tweeted that he had new music with Drake and Future that was “gonna drop soon.”

Throughout their near 40 year career, Public Enemy has been seen in countless manifestations, none of which compare to their in-the-flesh presence. But what if we told you that you could soon have your very own set of PE action figures?
In September, Japanese toy company PopPress will begin shipping out die-cast PVC figures of Chuck D, Flavor Flav, Professor Griff and Terminator X, designed by Hip-Hop Family Tree author, Ed Piskor, and sold as a four-piece set.
You can pre-order the figures here.
To say REKS took the underground rap scene by storm would be an understatement, as over the course of his first decade on the scene he was the definition of consistent, unleashing three consecutive albums that firmly established him as one of hip-hop’s most revered new artists: Along Came The Chosen, Grey Hairs (primarily produced by Statik Selektah with additional production from DJ Premier & Large Professor), Rhythmatic Eternal King Supreme (which debuted on the Billboard charts and included production from Statik Selektah, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Hi-Tek, Nottz, Sha Money XL & Sean C & LV).
Rather than resting on his laurels, REKS choose to take his artistic direction and vision in another direction, devoting his time and energy to embark on a new mission working on passion projects (REBELutionary, Revolution Cocktail & Eyes Watching God); all of which foreshadowed many of the societal ails that we as a country and now fully embroiled in.
While REKS’ The Greatest X (pronounced as The Greatest Unknown) is not a comeback album, it is a return to force for the Boston wordsmith. As he did on his previous stand-out efforts, REKS is back working with the industries elite producers (Large Professor, The Alchemist, Evidence, Statik Selektah, Nottz, Apollo Brown, Black Milk, Buckwild, Streetrunner) as he sets out to take the next step in his progression. REKS has already set things in motion with the release of videos for the Streetrunner produced “Hands Up” (Wink Wink), the Nottz produced “The Recipe,” “Jump Shots” (produced by Buckwild) and “B*tch Slap” f/ R.A. The Rugged Man, which have all been favorably received.

P.S. We’re hoping for the album to come out as soon as possible!
Earl Sweatshirt came out of nowhere. He released today a new instrumental joint entitled Pelicula. Listen to the 1-minute track via Apple Music below.
Back in March, fans of a Tribe Called Quest started a petition to name a street corner in Queens after group member Phife Dawg, who had passed away at the age of 45 due to complications resulting from diabetes just a week prior. Now, it appears that the petition hads worked, as Okayplayer reports that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is signing a bill to have Linden Blvd. and 192nd street renamed to Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor. The official announcement of the street renaming will happened on Wednesday (Aug. 3) at City Hall in lower Manhattan.
The website received a text from Phife’s manager confirming the name change and announcement date and time. The intersection mentioned above represents where Phife and Q-Tip met and eventually formed Tribe.
Earlier this year, de Blasio announced that Degraw Street between Fourth and Fifth Avenue in Brooklyn would be renamed Robert PH Diaz Way after fallen undergroundand battle rapper Pumpkinhead and as well signed a new bill that renamed part of Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx to Hip-Hop Boulevard.
While the original petition had called for the street to be named after A Tribe Called Quest, de Blasio’s recognition and decision to add the tribute continues his run of providing a nod toward the culture and cultural figures born in the streets of New York. The loss of these figures is no doubt a source of great pain but the tributes allow their legacy to live on just as their musical contributions will.
