Jessie Ware "wildest moments remix" feat. A$AP Rocky released today. DJ Finesse's hour long mix of B.I.G. lyrics over DJ Premier (who co-signed the project) beats was pretty disappointing. Also, Chris Brown's "fine China" premiered today (average). It seems he's back with his old writers/production team for this next album. He also made the radio show rounds this past week for promotion, delivering some not-off-the-top freestyles over Drake beats. Would've been a good opportunity for more shots fired (see R.I.P. remix), but he didn't. Usher's back in the studio with Jermaine Dupris and Young Jeezy for his next album. Ryan McDermott (G.O.O.D. music) released a song, which was supposed to be on Cruel Winter featuring Philip Bailey of Earth Wind & Fire fame. It's better than expected.
This has been your "mainstream" rap/r&b music highlights from the weekend/today, brought to you by yours truly.
Seeing Ryan Leslie in SF tomorrow.
