“Now many men.Many, many, many, many men wish death upon me.Have mercy on me. Cuz I’m just a prisoner of your army of one.But I’ll fight to the death or until your heart is won. Cuz where I’m from we live for the love. Die for the love.We live by the love. Die by the love.I live for you, love. Die for you, love.”
These are a few of the powerful lyric’s displayed on songstress Jhene Aiko‘s first Souled Out offering “To Love & Die” featuring Cocaine 80’s, the same song she first previewed on Instagram. The LA native sings of love and war, the kind that’s worth fighting for. Assisted by Cocaine 80‘s, this song has people comparing her to a younger Sade. With “The Worst” being huge on radio markets all over the country, fans have been awaiting this album. From the looks of it, we should be receiving a full length project very soon.
Check out the track and let us know how you’re feeling about it on Twitter.
Wiz Khalifa‘s new album, Blacc Hollywood, has been teased since he put out the video for “Old Chanel” last year, but once “We Dem Boyz”–one of the bigger rap records of the year–impacted, it was pretty plain to see that Wiz had a master plan to make sure that his third album was a big one. Now, after performing at Summer Jam, and releasing a 28-track mixtape, aptly titled 28 Grams, just a few weeks ago, he’s ready to push forward with his second single, which features, Juicy J & Project Pat-uh, who join Khalifa Man on his latest record.
“KK” will be featured on Blacc Hollywood, which is hitting later this summer.

With the single making waves on radio and his recent video releases consistently premiering on MTV Jams , Apollo follows up the momentum with the “Rio (Remix)”, a trunk-rattling reprise featuring D-Block frontman Jadakiss.
In the striking visual the two emcees trade bars in the middle of the hood as interspersing news clips detail the striking similarities between Rio’s gully side and the crime ridden streets of Apollo’s native Camden, NJ.
