Fresh from the Fridge: Jay-Z vs Coldplay- Viva La Hova (mixtape)

What’s up Soulifiedians?! It’s ya boy Black Milk aka Negro Leche and I’m bringing you another heater of a mixtape like the past few except this time I’m bringing one hell of a “Mash Up” album!

For those that are big Jay-z fans it’s been a hot sec since he’s gone up against an alternative band. November 30, 2004 to be exact when him and Linkin Park battled it out on they’re super dope album Collision Course which I still bump to this day before I compete in my karate tournament’s. This particular one is considered a “mixtape”.  It sounds like an album that both Jay Z and Coldplay did in the studio, with J spitting and Coldplay melodies.  All over crazy production from some of the dopest producers in the game like 9th Wonder. This is a must have for any Jay Z fan and it just might open you up to Coldplay and they’re genre of music as well.

I know this isn’t Soul related, but it’s well worth mentioning.  Everyone know about Jay-Z’s recent “The Blueprint 3” release.  Well… Alex Goose was on of the people to submit beats to be featured on Jay-Z’s album.  None of his beats made the cut, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t fiyah. :)  he has posted those beats to the public via  Take a listen for something  different. Plus you can’t beat anything that is free.

Jay Leno Show w/ Jay-Z, Rihanna & Kenye West

Good morning. This story keeps developing. A previously scheduled appearance of Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Kenye West, on Jay Leno’s premiere show on NBC, it added more depth to the MTV’s VMA drama. With Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift’s first award acceptance, to Beyonce giving Taylor a chance to properly shine in her moment. It was eventful to say the least. Kanye wanted to take some time before the performance to discuss his actions and his feelings on that moment. Below is the video. Enjoy.
