[Listen] Raekwon - "Molasses" Feat. Ghostface & Rick Ross

Happy Wu Wednesday! Here's some new Raekwon featuring Ghostface and Rick Ross from Rae's upcoming album Shaolin vs Wu Tang. The track titled "Molasses" has that classic Wu production but it's not RZA on the boards as the track is produced by Xtreme. From what we heard thus far, this album is sounding like its gonna be a massive Wu title.

[Listen] Lupe Fiasco - "I Don't Wanna Care" Feat. MDMA

One of our favorite radio stations, Austrailia's Triple J, premiered another joint from Lupe Fiasco's long awaited album L.A.S.E.R.S. titled "I Don't Wanna Care" featuring MDMA. I see this joint being the mainstream radio/club track compared to the prior album tracks "The Show Goes On," "Words I Never Said" featuring Skylar Grey and the recently released "All Black Everything." Check it out in the player below and remember to pick L.A.S.E.R.S up on March 8th.

[Listen] Foo Fighters - "Rope"

Happy Hump Day folks! What better way to kick off things, than starting with the new single from Foo Fighters, “Rope.” The track falls within the style of nearly every Foo Fighters' single, which is heavy but catchy. Although, it is certainly not as heavy as the first taste of the new album we received with "White Limo." Check out the track in the player below and let us know what you think in the comments. The band's new album Wasting Light releases on April 12th.

Chromeo performs "Hot Mess" on Conan

Last night, Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo payed Coco a visit, performing the incredibly awesome "Hot Mess," the third single from their latest album Business Casual. Chromeo have already shown us that they are as amazing on stage as they are on their albums, and this time was no different. Dave-1 (Dave Maklovitch) has his stage presence down, rockin' his Les Paul and drums while P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel) effortlessly plays his synthesizer. If that wasn't enough, the sexy female police officers from the "Hot Mess" video came along for the show, providing back up vocals. Sit back, relax, and watch a performance that is most definitely hot and anything but messy.
