Download Domo Genesis And Alchemist’s ‘No Idols’ Mixtape
I’m always hesitant to try and latch on to something that any Odd Future affiliate tags his name onto, but in the case of Domo Genesis linking up with Alchemist, it’s hard not to click the little link below (which I have provided) to catch some free sounds. Worst case scenario: at least the instrumentals are good.

Watch This: Fool Bulldozed By Security After Grabbing Nicki Minaj’ Hips On Stage
Yes, we can all fairly admit that Nicki Minaj’ plastic hippo ass has a strange hypnotic allure to it, not necessarily because of sexual attraction, but possibly in the way that we are captivated by morbidly obese people on Discovery channel documentaries and weight loss reality television shows; it’s a thing of contemplation, and for one fool, the reason why he was completely demolished by her security team at a recent Miami concert (oh, yes, there is a video below in case you’re itching for some ass-related violence).

Best Of The Week: “Molly Ringwald” By Danny Brown Feat. araabMUZIK
…poppin’ pills, get’m dropped to my door like Avon…f*ck them hoes, they go hard, ride my dick like a go-kart…
We caught some footage of Danny Brown and araabMUZIK putting this one together shortly back for YoursTruly and Adidas’ “Songs From Scratch” session, and with the end product here, I’ve got no reservations backing my opinion that this is the best record of the week (yes, Life Is Gooddropped yesterday, but it leaked a week ago, so I’m ruling anything from it ineligible).

Album Review: ‘Skelethon’ By Aesop Rock
Aesop Rock is a name that’s always been missed frequently in hip-hop, given he still follows the doctrine of letting an album breathe for a few years before releasing another, and with it being nearly a half decade since we received his previous LP None Shall Pass, Skelethon is most welcome without needing to earn much anticipation given his reputation.
Bad Move: A$AP Rocky Changes ‘Long.Live.A$AP’ Release Date To 9/11 | Ology
Yes, I know, you’re saying to yourself “Well, Hov’s Blueprint went Platinum, and it dropped on September 11,” but A$AP Rocky isn’t Jay-Z, and the reputation of his previous tapes certainly isn’t enough to supersede 9/11 remembrances. What I’m saying is that dropping your debut album on the eleventh anniversary of the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil might not be the best idea given that people are pretty preoccupied with other business, let alone paranoid that some return fire may suddenly appear from superstition. However, A$AP Rocky seems to insist that releasing his long-anticipated album Long.Live.A$AP on September 11 is a proper approach from a sales standpoint.

Album Review: ‘Self Made Vol. 2’ By Maybach Music Group | Ology
It took a self-created press release to relay Maybach Music Group’s Self Made follow-up, which converses immediately with the vanity of the project, and the intention of its composition. Braggadocio is the foundation of Self Made Vol. 2, the only exception being Stalley, who’s more focused on his craft rather than spouting off about his possessions. The remainder is tainted with the Ross philosophy—the drug kingpin costume, bank account obsessions and material decadence based only on consumption with no relation to the self. Even the flesh has to be stripped down to something with a price rather than actual human qualities; perceiving a Miami trick groupie as nothing more than a bag of money in the appropriately titled “Bag of Money,” or an object to maintain for show rather than company (“Let’s Talk” and “M.I.A.”)—it’s not an issue of misogyny; the words simply lack worth. Meek Mill and Wale are covered in Ross’ fingerprints in every bar they shoot, and the overdose of autotune crooning is an executive failure only Rozay could have orchestrated.

Kelis Speaks Her Mind On Nas’ ‘Life Is Good’ Album Cover
If you haven’t caught the album cover for Nas’ upcoming LP Life Is Good, then you probably can’t entirely pick up on the gravity of the situation (don’t worry, there’s a link below), but to give a quick summary, the color highlight is a wedding dress, Kelis’, to be exact, which echoes plenty about how her divorce with Nas’ still resonates as a key muse in one way or another in his artistry.

“Can’t We All Just Get Along”: Hip-Hop And The Rodney King Legacy
If you happened to miss the news, Rodney King passed away yesterday (Sunday, July 17) at the age of 47, leaving behind a legacy of unwanted celebrity as a martyr that would go on to help strike the 1992 L.A. Riots, and serve a place in American culture as a pivotal turn in undocumented cases of racially-driven police brutality.
Download: Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff Reunite on ‘Summertime III’ Mixtape
So, this is really only a part of the whole, but for Mick Boogie and DJ Jazzy Jeff’s freshly released Summertime Vol. 3 mixtape, we’ve got an interesting collaboration, in that Will Smith (yes, the Will Smith you’re thinking about) shows up on the tracklist to do some work with his longtime partner as a tribute to the coming summer.
