[Download] Tinie Tempah - "Like It or Love It" Feat Wretch 32 & J. Cole

Tinie Tempah has just come back with a big ass bang, not that he ever really left though! Today he took to twitter and let loose a new track titled "Like It or Love It" which is apt considering you probably will either love it or like it. It features Wretch 32 and J. Cole throwing in some bars too and it's our first taste of his forthcoming EP Happy Birthday which is set to drop next week. Tinie also said on Twitter "Fuck It..If I get over 100,000 Downloads by 12am.. I'ma drop the Whole EP EARLY!". This has definitely got me excited for some more new Tinie. It's not my birthday next week but I certainly do love this track, what say you? Download it for yourselves over here and let's get that EP early.

[Watch] The Collective - "Teardrop" (Massive Attack Cover)

This years Official Children in Need track isn't some band performing with a comedian, or some joke single, it's a melting pot full of bubbling talent that's ready to be enjoyed. The track features Ed Sheeran, Wretch 32, Tinchy Stryder, Gary Barlow, Tulisa, Chipmunk, Ms. Dynamite, Rizzle Kicks, Mz Bratt, Labrinth and Dot Rotten! The group has been dubbed The Collective and they've taken on Massive Attack's classic track "Teardrop" and the simplistic studio video will make you stop and think with it's cutting and thought provoking imagery. Not sure on the song choice mind and if you are a big fan of Massive Attack the track might not be for you. Just sayin'.

For those that can't see the video due to region restrictions, check out the song below.

[Listen] Wretch 32 - 'Black And White' (Album Sampler)

We've been keeping our eyes pressed in the direction of Wretch 32 ever since we first heard his huge track "Traktor" and now he is preparing to release his debut full length album, Black And White, in just a weeks time. To coincide with that we thought we'd give you a taste of what it has to offer in the shape of this album sampler. The album features guest spots from Ed Sheeran, Example, Chipmunk all adding their two cents to the mix. Sure to continue with his domination of the airwaves check out the sampler at the top and let us know what you think.

Ed Sheeran - "You Need Me, I Don't Need You" Feat. Wretch 32 & Devlin (Remix)(Music Video)

Ed Sheeran seems to be on a well earned roll at the moment and is dropping good song after good song along with getting support from some of the UK's finest talent. Proof of that comes again today as we have this remix version of his latest single, "You Need Me, I Don't Need You" featuring hard hitters Wretch 32 and Devlin. All three of them lay down some awesome bars to the original track. Nice to see they all have their own way of writing lyrics. Young gun Ed spits verses from his iPad, Wretch opts for writing his lyrics on the good ol' Blackberry and Devlin goes for the traditional approach, pen and paper. All three of them kill it in my opinion but don't take my word for it hit play and see for yourselves.
