Brand new submission from Austin Texas rapper Ay-Rock. Follow him on twitter @AyRockMusic and check his music out after the jump.
The O.G. drops a new visual for the lead track off his new LP, Intelligence & Ignorance, out now.
If you weren’t aware, Wayne is suing Quincy Jones III over his “The Carter Documentary” that was released back in 2008. Above is footage of his deposition back in June 2012.
I had my first interview with 50 Cent earlier this week. At Engine Room studios in NYC, we spoke on his upcoming 10-Year anniversary mixtape, The Big 10. To commemorate his first tape 50 Cent Is The Future, 50’s new mixtape will include 10 new songs with original production and the first listen to his new subdivision of G-Unit, Ryder Gang. He signed a new female artist and rapper Kidd Kidd to the imprint.
“I think that when people hear the tape, they’ll be surprised. It’ll hold ‘em over until my album comes out,” Fif adds with a confident smile. “I did over a Bobby Womack joint. But it’s further back then just doing someone else’s record that just came out. I see that so often from new artists–they follow the trend of what I did in that time period so often that it’s been exhausted. It’s a traffic jam in that area at this point.” (via VIBE)

Well, what do we have here, Pusha T?
The G.O.O.D Music emcee has been busy finishing up his Fear of God II: Let Us Pray EP, and his Def Jam album, while also touring with Kanye West, dropping a verse for the “miley cyrus” of Great Britain, Pixie Lott…and spitting some subliminals over Drake’s “Dreams Money Can Buy” beat.
Rappers on their sophomores, actin’ like they boss lords. Fame such a funny thing for sure when n—as start believing all those encores. I’m just the one to send you off, bonjour. See yourself as I pull up in that mirror tint, skins vs blouses, you mirror Prince. Chappelle Show, all them Neal Brennans, sketch comedy, who has for real been in? The talk don’t match the leather, the swag don’t match the sweaters, the wolves don’t walk with shepherds. These Margiela verses all you mob dwellers, off the rack suits looking like pallbearers.
Listen to Pusha T’s “Don’t F**k With Me” Freestyle…
And analyze the lyrics….

New Music: Pusha T – “Don’t F**k With Me (Dreams Money Can Buy Freestyle)”
The nerve of you, he’ll sit and clip at your lines like he ain’t heard of you…
I seen it happen before, that man will murder you.
The lowest form of a thief is a cat burglar. Tiptoe-in but the whole time clonin’*. The elephant’s in the room, the bitch glowin’.
Like a ghetto girl with the good weave sewn-in, she walk like its hers but the whole world knowin’.
Told n—as it’s the new god flow, it’s that new testament and that old god* knows. and you new n—as don’t get to pass GO, I’ll monopolize boardwalk empire flow.
So don’t mention me in the same breath, I’m Genghis. Just venting I never wish to be famous. Truth told I’d much rather be strangers, before it leads to me turnin’ n—-s to angels.
Local n—-as hatin’ but I can’t blame ‘em. Cleared the road to the riches but I can’t pave ‘em. Put Trey up on your hook, still couldn’t save ‘em*. Better chance with a snowball hittin’ Satan.
Dreams money can buy, three racks just spent on my Marty McFlys. Now I’m back to the future, my career deja-vu you, when you muthaf–kers thought I would barely survive….

See yourself as I pull up in that mirror tint, skins vs blouses, you mirror Prince*. Chappelle Show, all them Neal Brennans*, sketch comedy, who is for real penning? The talk don’t match the leather, the swag don’t match the sweaters*, the wolves don’t walk with shepherds. These Margiela verses all of you mall dwellers, off-the-rack suits looking like pallbearers. Coffins for my old bitches’ orphans, Daddy’s MIA like a dolphin, play the Fendi bucket like a sharkfin*, Cool J-ing on you bitches but I’m dark-skinned. We walked in, seats courtside, dap Diddy, Will Ferrell on my walk by. At the US Open, there’s much more to Queens, Versace blu-blockers, row behind Oracene*….
Push…no shots….but nothing goes unseen.
*”that man will murder you”: Pusha feels someone bit his rhymes?
*”that old god knows”: Jay-Z? Rakim? Or more literally….the big guy?
*”Put Trey up on your hook, still couldn’t save ‘em”: As in E-40’s classic song about suckers for love, “Captain Save A Ho.” This line is clearly directed at an unnamed “local” artist.
*sophomore albums: artists working on their 2nd albums include Wale, Drake, B.O.B., Consequence, Maino, Nicki Minaj…Justin Bieber,
*bonjour: and odd way to tell someone goodbye. LOL.
*”you mirror Prince”: the classic Charlie Murphy/Chappelle Show skit about playing basketball against blouse-wearing, heel-rocking Prince.
*Neal Brennan: The Chappelle show’s co-creator, who felt angry and disillusioned when Dave Chappelle disappeared. But Dave claims Neal betrayed him.
*”the swag don’t match the sweaters”: like this sweater? Or this sweater? Sweaters!
*sharkfin: As in LL Cool J’s classic line from “I’m Bad”
*Oracene: Oracene Price, the always outspoken mother of Serena and Venus Williams.

I’m not crazy about promo clips and trailers, especially when they contain longer credit sequences than actual commentary….so that said, this short video of Nas and Common in the studio working on “Ghetto Dreams” (off Common’s upcoming The Dreamer The Believer album) is a bit of a tease. Here’s a summary: Nas was happy to work with Com.
But there’s something still exciting about seeing these two guys together, I imagine they probably got along great, and talked in soft voices about lots of funny memories. I have my own fond memory of giving Common a tape-cassette dub of Nas’ Illmatic many years ago, and of us raving about how great it was. Love that guy.
Great throwback photo of the two of them which is being using as the single art too….
