You probably don’t remember, but way back in 2012, Waka Flocka Flame tweeted that he planned to run for president in 2016, and it looks like he was being completely serious. He exclusively revealed the news to Rolling Stone that he’s throwing his hat into the 2016 presidential race, and even filled out some paperwork to prove it, though we’ll ignore that Waka isn’t even old enough to run yet.

All mixed, cut, and flipped by DJ Big Jacks (of the Grand Groove DJs). Take it in now and enjoy the flavour of the OG Recipe!
The world can be a callous place that can force us to grow “Heartless.” For Rome Clientel and DJ Concept, a/k/a, Dirt Disciples, learning to take life’s hardships in stride is a lesson they’ve learned through personal experience. Spitting raw bars over an introspective piano loop, Rome sheds his rough exterior and exposes his duality, caught between his callous tendencies and emphatic ways. The result is a road map for how to elevate to greatness when it seems like you’re consumed in shade. Stay tuned for more updates from NY’s burgeoning emcee/producer duo, as they prepare for their sophomore EP!

A 2Pac sample is never a bad way to start a song. “Thuggin’” is off Glasses Malone’s upcoming Glasshouse 2 project, and it features an appropriately serious and fiery verse from Kendrick Lamar. In the spirit of Pac, “Thuggin’” is both thoughtful and confrontational. Get the song on iTunes, and look out for more from Glasses Malone in the coming months.
