Lupe Fiasco drops the video for his latest song, Solar Midnite, which is off the New Moon Soundtrack. I’m pretty sure all the hardcore hiphop fans must hate this tune! but i like it, its a new direction from him. His flow and lyrics are still dope but he’s spitting over a rock beat, can you dig it? Lil Wayne should take notes, this is how a rapper should do rock songs. Video after the cut.

Alicia_Keys_Element_of_Freedom_Eargasms

It’s that time of the week again! where I hook you up with some of the dopest tunes I’ve discovered this week. I’ll start things off with a track of Alicia Keys’ forthcoming project, The Element of Freedom. I’m sure the album will be a classic, she’s such an amazing vocalist! anyway the track is titled Unthinkable (I’m Ready) and its about a woman who’s ready to take the lead in her relationship. Track apparently features Drizzy Drake but I only hear him for like a split second in the background. Hit the read more button for tracks.

UPDATED – just found out that Drake wrote the song for Ms.Keys.
