Ryan Leslie recently released his fourth studio album, Black Mozart. The 12-track project (amongst other exclusives) is being offered to members of his #Renegades club. The club is a new strategy in an attempt to ultimately give back to those who are loyal fans and supporters. Not a member? Don't worry, DJ TAM-R has accommodated us with an album snippet mix blended together for your listening pleasure. Make sure to read our full review of R-Les when he made his way Toronto and stream the "Black Mozart" Album Snippet Mix after the jump. Do you think this is a smart move for Ryan Leslie? Let us know in the comments section.
I chose to take myself off of iTunes because there was too much anonymity happening in my career. Let’s say seven thousand records were sold digitally in the last three months, and if I want to reach out and just say, “Hey guys, because you bought my album, I’m actually able to tour this year,” I can’t even do that. So my goal around the Black Mozart project is…. First of all, people are going to bootleg this record. The minute it’s digital, it’s free. Folks that still support it, despite the fact that they can get it for free, those are the people I’m concerned with, those are the people who are enabling and empowering me to continue to create. I think more artists should be thanking the people who support them. They’d probably have longer careers.

King Reign is making a fast return and you can expect his new project Reign Music Vol.2 to stamp a mark in stone that he is not going anywhere anytime soon. With collaborations with Drake, Pharoahe Monche, Boi 1da, Saukrates, Kardinal Offishall and more under his belt, it's intriguing to see what comes next when talking about Reign Music Vol.2.

Skratch Bastid and The Come Up Show Team

It’s safe to say we were GEEKED when we got DJ Skratch Bastid to do a live set on The Come Up Show Radio. The response was amazing and thank you to Artfusion for bringing him to London. If you missed out on the mix TOO BAD, Skratch requested us not to post his mix online since he played unreleased joints exclusively for The Come Up Show listeners. What you can do is listen to our great interview with Skratch as he talks about his production on Flying Colours, his favourite acts from Toronto, such as Rich Kidd - who reminds him of new school Saukrates. Skratch also shared valuable lessons we can learn from Maestro Fresh Wes, and that his next project is possibly a producer album along the lines of Mark Ronson where he is the main producer and has a whole bunch of musical styles and artists. Do you want to know how long The Spring Up EP with Shad took to record? Listen for the answer with our interview with Skratch Bastid as he shared real jewels for Hip-Hop heads and let me know what you think!
