VIBE rounds up five hip-hop songs from last week that should be on your itunes playlist—Sowmya Krishnamurthy
Jay-Z “$100 Bill” (Snippet)
Hov’s contribution to “The Great Gatsby” soundtrack (which he’s also executive producing). It’s only a snippet, but we like what we hear.
Kanye West “All Falls Down” (Demo version)
An oldie but goodie. This 2001 demo version of Kanye’s “All Falls Down” before Lauryn Hill or Syleena Johnson graced him with their vocals. This week a bunch of Ye demos hit the Internets. It’s worth a listen to remember the artist before the leather kilts.
PartyNextDoor “Make A Mil”
Drake cosigns a mysterious new singer named PartyNextDoor, who may be a part of Drizzy’s OVO Sounds label. Out with The Weeknd, in with PartyNextDoor. Peep his first offering “Make A Mil.”
Kid Cudi feat Haim “Red Eye”
Like many of the standout cuts from Kid Cudi’s Indicud (which tops the Billboard 200 at #2 this week), “Red Eye” barely features Cudi at all. It’s a fun little pop song about flying great lengths to see your booski.
Ghostface Killah feat. Cappadonna “The Center of Attraction”
Ghostface Killah and producer Adrian Younge’s horror concept album Twelve Reasons To Die is out now. Ghost reunites with Wu brethren Cappadonna for this haunting tête-à-tête.
