Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ Remix, Narduwar vs. Waka Flocka Flame, New J.Cole + More! [HIP-HOP HEADLINES]
Since most artists wait until the actual holiday season starts to drop more music, this week’s HHH is a little light — but not all is lost. Here are some of the biggest stories from the past week in hip-hop, but be sure to keep an eye out for next week’s Hip-Hop Headlines, because all of the music that’s pending will definitely make that food coma worth while.
NEW MUSIC: Rihanna — “Diamonds Remix” featuring Kanye West. Rihanna’s been in the spotlight a lot for the past couple of weeks. Her new album has dropped, she’s currently on her 777 Tour (with 150 journalists she invited to come along), and her personal life doesn’t cease to make headlines. This week the pop/R&B diva blessed her fans with the “Diamonds” remix featuring Kanye West.
MIXTAPE DROP: Action Bronson — Rare Chandeliers. We mentioned this drop in our last post, and now that it’s had its time to marinate, we’re 100 percent sure it’s a must-download. Action Bronson’s gritty rhymes mixed with his nonchalant demeanor dominate on this mixtape. Take the time to download Rare Chandeliers on DatPiff and see what the former Mets chef has to say.
NEW MUSIC: J. Cole — “Miss America”. J. Cole has taken full advantage of the fall season this year. He’s been steadily releasing music, whether his own or something he’s produced, like for Kendrick Lamar. This week, J. Cole released his latest single, “Miss America,” which can be purchased on iTunes. For now, take a listen below.
INTERVIEW: Narduwar vs. Waka Flocka Flame. Narduwar has proven himself to be one of the most interesting interviewers in the music scene. His extensive knowledge brings many reactions from the artists themselves, and this time, the Human Serviette interviewed Waka Flocka Flame. Watch the above video and see the hilarious reactions from Waka — he even goes as far as adopting Narduwar into his Brick Squad crew.
