Don Cheadle time! Here's the latest track in Yeezy's G.O.O.D Friday series. This one is titled "Chain Heavy" and features BK emcee Talib Kweli and Consequence and its produced by the legendary Q-Tip. Some of you may remember Ye spitting some bars from this track during his visit to Facebook HQ. Peep the track below and have a G.O.O.D Weekend.
Mark Ronson paid David Letterman a visit yesterday and brought along Q-Tip and MNDR to perform "Bang Bang Bang" taken from his latest offering Record Collection. Check out the performance above and if you are yet to pick up the album and give it a listen head on over here to give it a listen. If you missed it last week we got hold of bonus track "Sound Of Plastic" which features Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran, Rose Elinor Dougall, Spank Rock, Jamie Reynolds of Klaxons fame and Anthony Rossomando of Libertines/Dirty Pretty Things. I think we'll be seeing a lot of Mark Ronson in the coming months so we better get used to his bleach blonde locks! Thanks to Audio Perv for the video.
Chiddy Bang's first major release The Preview is currently streaming courtesy of MySpace Music. The album features guest like Pharrell, Q-Tip, Darwin Deez and includes samples from Darwin Deez's "Bad Day", Dr. Dog's "Old Ways", Sufjan Stevens's "Chicago", Xaphoon Jones' remix of The Knocks' "Blackout", MGMT's "Kids" and Passion Pit's "Better Things." Check it out below before it drops on Oct 12th (US) and 11th (UK).
NOTE: If the stream doesn't show up, try refreshing until its there. Safari and Chrome seem to have issues with MySpace embeds.
Chiddy announced earlier this week on his Twitter that the group's highly anticipated debut album The Swelly Life, is now set for a Feb 2011 release date. (Drats..) But, it wasn't all bad news as he also announced that the group will be releasing a "mini-album" titled The Preview on October 11th.
The group stated, “The main purpose of this release is to give our fans some new music whilst we finish recording our debut album, ‘Swelly Life’. It’s called ‘The Preview’ because it gives listeners a glimpse of what’s to come on Swelly.” The prequel features the groups first two singles, the MGMT "Kids" sampling hit "Opposite of Adults" and the Passion Pit sampling banger "The Truth". The Preview also features new material like the groups recent collaboration with The Neptunes/N*E*R*D super producer Pharrell Williams, who co-produced new single "Good Life", Q-Tip who features on the dubstep banger "Here We Go" and Darwin Deez who features on the track, which I only assume samples Deez very own hit, "Bad Day".
Chiddy Bang producer Xaphoon Jones previously remixed the Darwin Deez track "Bad Day" for his mixtape Xaphoon Jones Mixtape Vol. 1, which you can check out below. Check out The Preview's full tracklisting as well as the groups upcoming tour dates with UK label mate Tinie Tempah after the jump.
Check out the first single, the first from Mark's forthcoming new album Record Collection, features Q-Tip on rapping duties and MNDR, Yeah Yeah Yeahs' touring keyboard player, on vocals. Shouts to The Fader for the heads up!
UPDATE: Uploaded CDQ Album Version of the Track. Enjoy!
