The promotional run for his new album #willpower is in full effect today. After releasing his Miley Cyrus-powered tune “Fall Down” earlier today, will.i.am now shares two further collaborations – “Freshy” featuring Juicy J and “Let’s Go” featuring Chris Brown. Judging from the sound of all three tracks, the sonic approach for #willpower will make the radio happy. Listen below.
Snoop Lion follows up on “No Guns Allowed,” the new single from his Reincarnated album, by releasing the visual accompaniment for the song. The music video, which is primarily filmed in black and white, sees Snoop reinforcing the solemn topic of his song with news clips from shootings over the past few years. These clips are presented as fragmented bits layered over artistic shots (and sometimes juxtaposed with a church choir), creating an evocative collage of national tragedy. Aside from Snoop Lion, Cori B. – Snoop’s daughter – and Drake make an appearance. Enjoy the video above, which was directed by Jessy Terrero.
Snoop Lion presents a cut from his forthcoming Reincarnated album, teaming up with Drake and daughter Cori B to release “No Guns Allowed.” In following with the themes of his new life direction per Reincarnated, ”No Guns Allowed” takes on a more solemn tone than Snoop songs of the past, promoting peace and positivity while rejecting materialism — and pulling it off. The atmospheric production making use of tribal drums and a catchy piano hook while the track represents a departure for Drake as well, not in the regards to flow or talking about Toronto, but rather as he assumes a refreshingly aware tone. Enjoy the song below.
Pusha T unleashes the latest visuals to his French Montana-assisted, Wrath of Caine track, “Doesn’t Matter.” Lyrically the cut features the type of braggadocio that we’ve come to expect from the G.O.O.D. Music affiliate, this time set to the backdrop of a New York City night. No stranger to working with Push for his accompanying visuals, the video was directed by Samuel Rogers. Let this hold you over until May when Pusha T is expected top drop his debut LP My Name Is My Name.
As his Wrath of Caine project continues to gain significant daily downloads, Pusha T offers up a video treatment to the boastful “Millions” track featuring Rick Ross. Be it a dusky traphouse or venal prescient, these rap kingpins would like to musically proclaim their need for hoarding “millions in the ceiling, choppers in the closet” and a fine flock of females. Remaining consistent since his signing to G.O.O.D. Music a few years ago, we can’t help but wonder when he’ll release another major studio album.
Chicago’s The Hood Internet lay the mash-ups aside for their latest effort, now letting loose the Feat Remixes compilation. The work showcases 11 tracks, featuring re-ups from a variety of artists, as the collective effort really has a little something for everyone. Don’t just take our word for it, though. See the player below to both stream and download The Hood Internet’s most recent release. Enjoy.
Christina Aguilera treats fans to another song from her forthcoming album Lotus. After sharing her dance track “Your Body,” “Blank Page” serves as the second single from Aguilera’s seventh studio LP, and we hear her slow things down and serenade over the Chris Braide-produced piano keys. X-tina isn’t shy when it comes to showing off her vocal range and really puts it on display with her latest ballad. Also, fans of the songstress can check out her latest appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where she was joined by The Roots to perform her lead single “Your Body” using office supplies as instruments. Lotus is set to release November 13, and you can place your pre-orders now by clicking here.
As one star rises from out of the west, the spotlight quickly shines on two of the Bay Area’s most influential rappers, E-40 and Too $hort. After announcing the collaborative project with the Hip-Hop veteran, E-40 intrigued even the most pompous of rap fans.
A week away from the release of their first effort together titled History: Function & Mob Music, we are treated with a cut off the double LP titled ‘Say I’ featuring the head of the Taylor Gang movement, Wiz Khalifa.
Pre-order the 34 song project on iTunes right now and get a listen to the record after the jump.

Directed by David Helman with support from Creative Control’s Coodie & Chike, Joey Bada$$ presents the visuals for “Fromdatomb$” with an assist from Chuck Strangers. Pulled from his well-received 1999 mixtape, the accompanying video manages to capture the organic and natural “throwback” appeal that has endeared Bada$$ to hip-hop purists. Keep an eye out for the re-teaming of Joey Bada$$ and Chuck Strangers for Pro Era which is set to drop December 21.

Artist Name: Fem Fel
Location: London, UK
Musical Style: Reflective rap.
Fem Fel has come a long way since I profiled him on The Independent nearly two years ago. We both have, really, but his delivery and content has made more of an impact where UK rap is concerned. From a shy rhymer to a confident story-teller, he has spent enough time honing his craft in the studio to finally receive the praise and adoration that he truly deserves. “At the moment, I’m on the verge of a publishing and record deal,” Fem Fel tells RapFix. “I’m spending most of my days recording demos in the studio.”
With a strong PR team taking good care of him, the south Londoner has been fortunate enough to bless certain internet and magazine pages that even signed artists haven’t been able to bless, so news of a record deal is no surprise to me. And that leads us nicely on to his new track, Big Money – which features fellow south Londoner, Blade Brown.
“Big Money is basically Fem Fel in story-telling mode, allowing people to hear, see and feel our experiences, without having to have had personally experienced it themselves,” he says. “It also represents the struggles and aspirations of people from whatever area or background – the whole ‘nothing to something’ theory. I heard the beat and it just evoked the right emotion and there was nothing else I could do but give my heart to the track.”
He continues: “When choosing a collab, it only made sense to call for somebody who was capable to do the same. Working with Blade Brown is like working with my brother. We always do our odd once a year collab, especially since our joint mixtape, Fem Fel Vs Blade, went down so well.” Watch below, as two of the UK rap scene’s most loved names go back-to-back on this inspirational offering…\
RapFix’s “UK Video Of The Week” is a new weekly column by UK-based music journalist, Joseph ‘JP’ Patterson, designed to give us a closer look at hip-hop across the pond. Stay tuned.
