State In The Real – Penn State Music Scene

Eminem – Rap God

Well, he’s back again. After the success of his first single Berzerk, Eminem has released another single to help build anticipation for his first album in a few years. We’re under a month away from “Marshall Mathers LP 2” and I personally can not wait to hear what Shady has in store for us. This song is a little longer, but of course it’s worth it. The beat and flow are constantly changing and you should recognize a few of them. Enjoy this one.

Justin Timberlake Has A New Song

Just a few months after he released the first half of The 20/20 Experience, Justin Timberlake is back with a new jam. This is the lead single off the second half of his album. “TKO” is a good name and it fits the jam really well. JT just keeps putting out good music. Enjoy.

J. Cole – Crooked Smile

Everything J. Cole has done has been outstanding. He released an incredible debut album and backed it up with an incredible second album. He inspires thought, creates moving visuals and gives fans an inside look to what he is going through as a person. Everyone has been playing Crooked Smile for months now and we all know how good the song is. It’s awesome to hear TLC again and J. Cole is fire on the track. He released the video for it yesterday and its already racked up 500,000 + views. It’s a short film, so be prepared to sit down for a few minutes. Definitely worth watching. Enjoy.

Jhene Aiko ft Childish Gambino – Bed Peace

For those of you that don’t know who Jhene Aiko is, you’re in for a treat with this one. The talented singer has become a household name across the country because the girl can freaking sing. She is clever with her words and always has a fantastic beat on her songs. She teamed up with Childish Gambino for a new track called Bed Peace. The name fits the track perfectly. It’s a laid back feel good song that everyone could enjoy. The reason I’m posting this song is because Gambino is headlining Spa’s Homecoming Concert. Childish Gambino is a rapper who is a little more known for his hard lyrics and intense beats. He has made a name for himself musically with songs like Bonfire, Freaks and Geeks, Toxic and more. On this particular song, he is a little more chill and shows a softer side to his music. Enjoy this one.
