You know those groups that release a few amazing songs then blow up? HAERTS may be one of them. It's hard to believe "All The Days" is only their second song because there's such an immense presence on it. Make sure you keep the New York-based band on your radar. Apparently, they're already signed to Columbia Records. Stop by HAERTS SoundCloud to check out their first song "Wings," which was produced in collaboration with Jean-Philip Grobler (aka St. Lucia). While we wait for further information on the group, let us know your opinion of the single down below.

After speaking on Kanye West‘s “New Slaves,” Kendrick Lamar converses with Sway about Molly. If you watched Kendrick’s music video for “B*tch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” all the way until the end, you’ll remember the black screen with white letters that spelled out “Death to Molly” that appeared. Sway asked the Compton emcee what he meant by it. K-Dot explained he’s aiming to “keep hip hop original and push away the corniness.” From his perspective, Molly is corny because of its false portrayal by artists and a bad trend because of the complacency it has set on hip hop.
This Miami emcee has been on my radar for the longest and his previous project have shown great promise, but Ghoswridah‘s forthcoming Flu Game is lining up to be the defining project of his young career. In “Buckets” you can hear the hunger in his rhymes and the confidence in his voice, a great one-two combo that also benefits from a soulful instrumental produced by Don Cannon.

You probably figured that rappers would leave Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O." alone after Black Hippy massacred it with their remix. Well, that didn't stop Trinidad Jame$ from taking his turn at the cut. So who do you think has the second best remix of the street single: Jame$, A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz, Usher, or Wiz Khalifa? Don't forget that the official remix is still on its way and will feature Rick Ross and others.
Perhaps one of the most painstaking releases in Nike history was the Nike Air Yeezy 2 in 2012. Some may postulate that Nike’s Twitter RSVP system was created just to counter the seemingly limitless crowds that would undoubtedly show at storefronts, and although independently owned shops did not employ their own “Twitter RSVP”, Nike did encourage each store to use a raffle-style release in order to minimize the camp-out craze. Two colorways of the Air Yeezy 2 came and went, and considering the original Air Yeezy released in three version, many believed that a third Air Yeezy 2 colorway was in the works – especially with that curious “Kobe” colorway in purple/red/volt still swimming around the net and Gentry Humphrey himself coolly mentioned that “things are still in the works”. With that said, the excitement around the Air Yeezy 2 has never waned, but recent events have propelled this discussion topic back to the surface. Tonight’s topic on What Do You Think?: What could the release of the red Nike Air Yeezy 2 colorway mean for the sneaker game and how will it go down?
