Joell Ortiz Calls Out Sucka MCs On New Song, "God Forbid"

Joell Ortiz returns with more fire.  

When rap fans want to hear purebred New York City rhymes, or what some consider "real rap," we can always count on Brooklyn's Joell Ortiz to do just that. Although he's been fairly quiet in 2017, the Slaughterhouse member delivered new heat this week on his new song, "God Forbid."

Over Heatmakerz signature soulful loops, Yaowa spits a mean onslaught of wordplay on the state of New York hip-hop, among other topics. "Real rap I'm hearing New York's back/Like we left, like I ain't always have New York's back/Just for years bars wasn't something New York backed/Now we trying to re-coupe like they bringing two doors bars (nah)," raps Ortiz on the track.

"God Forbid" comes just a few weeks after his insane "Rap Millionaire" track, which was produced by frequent collaborator, !llmind.

Maybe the Yaowa emcee is in album mode because his last solo album was released back in 2016 with That's Hip-Hop. And in 2015, the veteran rhymeslinger released his full-length effort, Human.

Allow Salma Slims To Provide "Seasoning" With Her Irresistible Flow

Salma Slims has come out the kitchen with some new heat.

The Private Club Records prodigy recently released a new song titled "Seasoning," giving her fans the sauce they've craved and then some.

"My flow change like seasons/this that sauce that seasoning/do the whole rap game breezy," Slims rapped on the record produced by Cam Wallace who has worked with artists such as Ty Dolla $ign and Sevyn Streeter. The track single is a teaser for what fans can expect for the artist's and model's upcoming project Runway Rapper expected later this year.

Although she's presently an up-and-coming hip-hop artist and a successful model, instead of rapping about the current "hats" she wears, Slims recalled her past life working in retail as a reminder of tough days.

"Double the dose/I  do this s**t for my bros/I do this s**t for the days I was workin' at Lowes/That s**t was pushin' me close," she rhymed as she rode the beat. Slims also had smoke for anyone who could be bitin' her style and how chasing a "bag" is the only thing she needs.

"Might take a hit from the bong/B***h I get lit while I'm gone/Bitin' my style man, n***as is clones/They just can't leave me alone/I'm in the house like Jerome/I'm in the house like Jerome/Might put life in a song/I put my life in a song." 

"One eighty on the dash/Lil' n***a speeding/Big bag only thing I'm needing/I'm bad Mike Jack wanna beat it." 

Keep an eye out for Atlanta's rising rapper, she's the pinch of seasoning the industry needs.

Anderson .Paak Prepares 'Ventura' Album Release With New Single "King James"

Only four months after his recently released Oxnard album, Anderson .Paak dropped a new single to commemorate his forthcoming project, Ventura. To up the ante, his new song titled "King James" arrived early Friday morning (March 15), bringing a hard-hitting track coated in funky instrumentals and good intentions.

"King James" takes jazz-funk inspirations to a new level with the sounds of a smooth saxophone, which opens the smile-provoking 808 beat that rides under the Grammy-winning musician's voice. Covering a myriad of important topics like the looming border wall construction and black empowerment, the 33-year-old gives a shout out to LeBron James' contributions to the African American community and the NFL-kneeling movement started by Colin Kaepernick.

Though the single seems very serious, .Paak's "King James" inspires a groove with its upbeat production.

The "Tints" emcee also announced the forthcoming tracklist will include star-studded features from Brandy, André 3000, Jazmine Sullivan, Nate Dogg, and Smokey Robinson. Ventura will reach virtual streaming shelves April 12.

ScHoolboy Q Returns With 'Numb Numb Juice'

TDE had a fruitful 2018, with Jay Rock earning a Grammy for "Win" and Kendrick Lamar and SZA sharing an Oscar for their song "All The Stars." But now, it's ScHoolboy Q's turn. After working guest features over the past few years with Mike WiLL Made-It and on the Black Panther soundtrack, Q has dropped his new single, "Numb Numb Juice."

"Numb Numb Juice" clocks in at under two minutes, but that's all the time he needs. The bars are signature ScHoolboy Q, with a hard-hitting beat by DJ Fu, Hykeem Carter and Nez & Rio. No word on a release date or title for his album, the folow-up to 2016's Blank Face LP, but fans are clearly ready - "Numb Numb Juice" was trending on the Thursday morning (March 14) after its release. The music video appears to be scheduled for a 1 p.m. EST release.
