Drake has finally released his highly anticipated record "Trophies," produced by Hit-Boy. The song originally appeared in the trailer for Drizzy's latest album, Nothing Was The Same and was also previewed during his recent Would You Like A Tour? concert tour. Apparently, Drake wasn't satisfied with the hook on the track which was one of the reasons it didn't make the cut for his latest LP. Tonight, we get to hear the final product. Will this be the anthem for NYE? Let us know in the comments section.
Turning Kanye's "New Slaves" into a whole other song, Hit-Boy does his thing on the beat (making minor tweaks) and writes an entirely new hit playing off a similar concept but with a twist. The Damian Marcano directed visuals for "New Chains" show Hit-Boy and a few women sporting chains but he is only using that as a reference. Check out Hit-Boy's remix below and let me know which version you think is best.
Rock The Bells returns for its 10 Year Anniversary with a line up that is sure to attract hip-hop fans across generations. The festival will kick off at San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California on September 7 and 8 and make its way to Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California on September 14 and 15. The tour will continue on the east coast with new festival sites at RFK Festival Grounds in Washington D.C. on September 28 and 29, and at Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, New Jersey on October 4 and 5. Current superstars such as Kid Cudi, Big KRIT, Tyler the Creator and rap super-group Black Hippy will be sharing the stage with old favorites like Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim and Bone Thugs N Harmony for what will be one of the most memorable hip-hop concerts in recent history. If the big names weren't enough, we will also get a chance to see other very talented artists like Talib Kweli and Dilated Peoples who have gained much respect among the biggest names in hip-hop. Another unique feature of this concert series is that it will feature virtual performances from the Godfather of Gangster Rap, the late Eazy-E, and Ol' Dirty Bastard of the Wu-Tang Clan. This has received approval by their families of course. Virtual performances are sure to have their share of critics but there is no doubting they will expose these artists to a new set of fans who will also have a chance to appreciate their music like we did. Who would you like to see added to line up? Do you think virtual performances are a tribute to the artist or a gimmick? Tell us what you think!
