Missy Elliott never missed a beat with her visuals, dance moves, or deliverance with her debut video after a lengthy hiatus from the music industry. With eye-gaging visuals and the profound collaboration with Pharrell Williams, there is no telling what her album is going to sound like, but we are anticipating for the best! She truly signifies what it means to be a legend and one who continues to breakthrough as an industry fresh.
What does legendary R&B songstress Brandy, modern day renaissance Hip-Hop revivalist Kendrick Lamar, songwriting extraordinaire James Fauntleroy, and Hip-Hop experimenter Ty Dolla $ign all have in common? Being a product of the West Coast environment while coming of age, Los Angeles in particular. While ‘LA’ has been in slight rotation for the last couple of years, Ty Dolla $ign used ethical gestures and prompted the most prominent artists while producing a range of different octaves while reflecting upon their neighborhoods in different sections of Los Angeles. While Kendrick reverts back to post- Section.80 era with his deliverance, Brandy and James Fauntleroy both harmonize the hook in the background, as if one were standing on the Hollywood sign, resonating a loud rejoice of victory.
‘LA‘ is part of Ty Dolla $ign’s ‘Free TC‘ collective, which is available for pre-order until its November 13th [which is tomorrow] release. Do you think there should be a video for ‘LA’?
It has been a while since we’ve heard from Kid Cudi, but to our astonishment, the 31-year-old phenom is not only preparing to release his highly anticipated fifth studio double compilation, Speedin’ Bullet to Heaven; but he is set to take off on the road beginning on November 30th in Denver, CO and 15 other cities thereafter, ending in Santa Ana on December 22nd. The first single off his forthcoming album ‘Confused‘ is slated for a December 4th release. Peep the 16-city tour after the jump! Are you all excited for Cudder’s return?!
In honor of Omarion‘s 31st birthday [Nov. 12], the R&B crooner released his third installment with ‘Care Package 3‘ while his growing fan base steadily anticipates for his forthcoming studio album Reasons.

Omarion is surely delivering warmth for the audience with this 8-track compilation for the upcoming season. The mixtape features R&B sensation, BJ The Chicago Kid, Rich Homie Quan, Kehlani, and Problem! Listen to the stream below after the jump and tell us what you think!
Missy ‘Misdemeanor’ Elliott is gearing up for her return in a major way! The 44-year-old Hip-Hop extraordinaire collaborated with no other than Pharrell Williams. The image above is from behind the scenes of the visual to ‘WTF (Where They From)‘ in which reflects back to the 80’s or 90’s era or Hip-Hop. Be sure to listen to the debut of Missy‘s re-introduction on iHeart Radio at 4:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (in which the rapper stated that it will play every hour on the hour in case you’ve missed it) as well as her the premiere of her highly acclaimed video. Who’s ready for the return of Missy?! I don’t think the world is ready, but we need her!
