Let us give thanks to R&B superstar Estelle for giving away free music on this Thanksgiving holiday. The Sing and Flow: Duets EP features tracks she and John Legend have recorded together as well as previously-released material. The highlight of the FreEP is Estelle and Legend's R&B flip of Jay Electronica's "Shiny Suit Theory." I posted the song below.

New Video: Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (The Samples)



This is for all of my "Sample" nerds out there.

An enterprising vlogger named chaoticjesus posted a video showing all of the samples used on Kanye West's critically acclaimed LP My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Watch and listen at how a hip-hop genius created his musical masterpiece. In addition, the rap blog HipHop-N-More posted the booklet scans HERE and full production credits (in text) HERE.

Old Music: Nas - "Foul Breeze"



[UPDATE: This is a two-year-old song under a different name. Check this song out if you want to hear some nostalgic lyrical Nas.]


Nas' "Foul Breeze" is a track from Carmelo Anthony's new mixtape Become Legendary (download HERE), which boasts exclusive songs from Styles P, Young Dro, Ghostface Killah, Big Sean, Saigon and others. The project serves in conjunction with 'Melo's latest signature shoe with Jordan Brand, the Melo M7 (due in December).

Nas is a lyrical beast on this dope old-ass track, which samples the Soul Sensation Orchestra's "Faded Lady," which Busta Rhymes used on "New York Shit." This is the lyrical Nas rap heads are yearning to hear again. There's nothing foul about this song. Except for it being a two-year-old track!

New Music: Kanye West x Jay-Z - "That's My Bitch" (No Tags)



Kanye West left us hanging without a G.O.O.D. Friday song last Friday (Nov. 19). No problem, we all know that Yeezy was busy promoting his new LP My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

"That's My Bitch" was released today and could possibly be on Kanye and Jay-Z's collaborative album Watch the Throne. Yeezy and Jigga spit some tongue-twisting rhymes on the chaotic track, which was produced by Q-Tip. The song also boasts a few samples, including James Brown ("Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved") and Incredible Bongo Band ("Apache"). Singer Elly Jackson (of Euro electro-pop group La Roux) is singing on the hook.
