Jay-Z Drops New Track, “Open Letter,” Addressing Critics Of Cuba Trip

Last night, Jay-Z went into the studio with Timbaland and Swizz Beatz and recorded a new song that he released a few hours later. “Open Letter” has a relatively simple, but completely hot beat and features Hov rapping about his ownership of the Brooklyn Nets and he and Beyonce’s recent controversial trip to Cuba.

“Boy from the hood but got White House clearance / Sorry y’all, I don’t agree with y’all appearance / Politicians never did shit for me / Except lie to me, distort history / Wanna give me jail time and a fine / Fine, let me commit a real crime.”

Hot 97 played the track over and over and over again this morning and I gotta tell you, I didn’t mind the break from Kendrick Lamar and the latest Rihanna track. When Jay’s on the radio, y’all gon learn today! Listen below! [Hot 97]

  • Rapper Tyga is booked for the Yardfest concert this month on Harvard’s campus — but not if over 1,000 students, who have signed a petition requesting him not to perform for the school on the basis of his sexist and violent lyrics, get their way. In particular, the song “Rack City” is problematic for its profligate use of the word “bitch” and lyrics comparing himself to a pimp making a woman “hop the boulevard / I need my money pronto.” [Harvard CrimsonSalon]
  • In related news, Talib Kweli told a HuffPost Live segment that Rick Ross is “misguided” and should apologize for rapping about drugging a woman and raping her. Ross kinda sorta apologized already, but not really, because he just blamed women for “misunderstanding” him. [Madame Noire]
  • The Dallas Mavericks owner said he would be willing to draft Brittney Griner, a 6’8″ player for the Baylor women’s basketball team, to his team in the NBA. Presently there is no rule which says the NBA can’t draft a woman. [ESPN]

  • “Put Molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it/I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it,” are some charming new Rick Ross lyrics from a song by Rocko called “You Don’t Even Know It.” ‘Molly’ is a slang term for the drug MDMA. See, what the girl in Rick Ross’ song doesn’t even know is that she’s getting drugged and RAPED. Fucking gross. [Hello Beautiful]
  • “Spring Breakers” director Harmony Korine got banned from David Letterman’s show after her was caught rifling through Meryl Streep’s purse in her dressing room. Ew. [Moviefone]

Hump Day Hottie: Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar was a Hump Day Hottie contender before I’d even seen his face. See, I’ve been crushing on his voice for months and months, ever since his songs “Swimming Pools (Drank),” “Poetic Justice” (featuring Drake), and “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” started getting regular airplay on my beloved Hot 97 morning show. Kendrick — who has a baby face, but is a ripe old 25 — is an example of a larger trend of underground hip-hop acts finding mainstream success. His first album, Section.80, was released independently and exclusively through iTunes in 2011, and quickly skyrocketed to becoming one of the top digital releases of that year, thanks to the large internet following he had grown organically.

His major label debut, good kid, m.A.A.d city, was released through Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment, Interscope and Top Dawg, and he’s been busy touring like crazy with Drake and 2Chainz. Basically, Kendrick Lamar is one of the hottttttest dudes in the hip-hop game right now. His style in definitely influenced by his hip-hop heroes, like Tupac, Biggie, Dr. Dre and Eminem and Rakin, though I find his vocal quality and flow to be unique and refreshing. Doesn’t hurt that he samples Janet Jackson on “Poetic Justice” and wrote the hook I most like to improvise on while I’m showering (“Get it wet drank/Pour it out drank/Lather up drank/Rinse it out drank”). I happen to think he’s really cute too. Listen to a few of Kendrick’s songs after the jump and click through above for more pics! Keep reading »

Nine-years-old is apparently old enough for pint-sized actress Quvenzhané Wallis to be called a c**t.

So why not let a nine-year-old rapper called Lil Poopy slap an adult woman’s ass in his music video for “Pop That Remix”? Childhood — who needs it?

Ugh. When the fuck did we stop letting children be children and start sexualizing them?

Hump Day Hottie: Macklemore

With the cold winter months approaching, it’s time to heat things up. Our new newsletter, Hump Day Hotties, will bring our favorite eye candy directly into your inbox every Wednesday. (Subscribe here!) Feel free to drool. We won’t judge.

I can’t lie: my Spotify listening of late has been all Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, all the time. Their hip hop album The Heist is the best I’ve heard all year and that’s saying something because it was a good year for music. And it doesn’t hurt that Macklemore — aka Ben Haggerty — is easy on the eyes, too. I daresay he looks like a more blonde, masculine version of The Gos. Keep reading »
