New Track from Wale – Workin'

Wale RapperListen to the new track “Workin’” from DC-based rapper Wale. Definitely sounds like him at his best— the track is on the same level as “Chillin’” and “Nike Boots.” Wale’s been keeping a pretty low profile these last few months, and a new video he’s released explains why.

“Workin’” is off of his upcoming mixtape, More About Nothing, which is set for release on August 3rd. Check out both below:

Wale's "Chillin" feat. Lady GaGa Music Video

Wale Lady GaGa ChillinEarlier today, the hotly anticipated music video for Wale’s hit song “Chillin” feat. Lady GaGa was released. The video was directed by Grammy nominated director Chris Robinson. Overall it’s a decent, catchy song that’s definitely going to be getting some serious air time. Wale brings his A game as usual. The only weird thing is how much Lady GaGa sounds like M.I.A. It’s kind of annoying actually.

Mixtape Mondays: Wiz Khalifa Presents Flight School

Wiz Khalifa Flight SchoolThis week, I feel like showing some love to the up-and-coming rap genius Wiz Khalifa. Originally hailing from Pittsburgh, the 21-year old Wiz Khalifa has already shared the stage with the likes of Ghostface Killah, Styles P, Lupe Fiasco, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Cham, Little Brother, Clipse, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Lil Scrappy, Mario, T.I., Nas, and Rich Boy. Back in 2008, his hit single “Say Yeah” dropped to critical acclaim. I remember I had that track on repeat for days. Khalifa’s version of “Say Yeah” was even mashed-up in the song “Don’t Stop” off of Feed the Animals by Girl Talk.

Gregg 'Girl Talk' Gillis Live at Yale's Spring Fling Festival

Gregg Gillis Girl TalkGregg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, has been known to frequently perform on college campuses and take over the college music scene. In fact, he got his start performing shows on the weekends while still a student at Case Western Reserve University. He eventually went on to graduate, and get a job as an engineer before quitting in 2007 to concentrate on music full time.

Just last month, he was one of three big artists who performed at Yale’s annual Spring Fling festival (the other two being N.E.R.D. and Wale). As expected, Girl Talk got the crowd bumping (and sweating) with his unique dance remixes and eclectic persona. Thanks to the guys over at freeculturemusic, the live recordings of Girl Talk at Yale have now been released for your listening pleasure. He performs a bunch of his classic hits the way you’re used to hearing them, as well as other tracks with subtle variations that only happen during his live sets. Enjoy.
