Something should be said for the dope production on this tape. The names might not catch your eye initially, but the production is something special. DrewByrd (“1:25″ “Gold Alpinas” feat. Rick Ross , what up OPM) and DJ Dahi (My Type Of Party, P + H) did some damage, while Chase N Cashe (salute Surf Club) produced the banger “We Ball” featuring Kendrick Lamar. Dom got shown some love. He also knew what he was doing by making a good portion of his subject matter about the ladies … touche’.
Dom got this one right. He even threw in two double songs (please check PG Click and listen to the whole song, the first part is pretty meh though, you’ve been warned). If I get a chance, I want to ask him two questions. One. Why is this sh*t so player .. … playa? … and two .. What’s next?

I like debut albums that aren’t feature heavy. It shows that an artist can produce on their own. The Andre 3000 feature should be dope … John Mayer and Earl from OddFuture make an appearance as well.
“Mercy Part 2” . Anyone? . Somebody tell Swizz Beatz to stop rapping . Dope track from Push tho .
Pusha T took a visit to Hot 97 last night and hit up the kingpin, Funkmaster Flex. After talking with Flex and saying that Lil Wayne’s “Ghoulish” diss towards him was “trash,” he dropped this new record “In This Ho (Lambo).”
The evil half of the Thornton brothers also announced that G.O.O.D. Music’s group album Cruel Summer will drop August 7th. – WIRED
Frank Ocean previews a new song off his new album? Is it actually an album? Why does he love BMW so much? Why do we have so many questions left unswered?! Whatever the case may be, the “channel.ORANGE 7.17.12” plug at the end points to the upcoming release of Frankie’s debut album under Def Jam. Although the intentions are unclear as of yet (the video released randomly in the middle of the night), the title does look a lot like his previous album “nostalgia,ULTRA.” However, does any artist announce an album release just one month before the drop?
The video is directed by Nabil (“Mercy” video) and appears pretty ambiguous. The song is pretty dope, and leaves us wanting more. Be on the lookout for more news regarding this update.
UPDATE: Def Jam announced that this is his debut album and will be available everywhere July 12th. He will also be going on tour and tickets are available now … (Click the picture to find tickets on his website)
Frank Ocean – Pyramids
Frank Ocean Friday continues. After announcing a July 17 release date for his Def Jam debut Channel Orange and a North American tour, the singer-songwriter gives us the first single “Pyramids,” which can be heard in the video teaser. His Odd Future cohort Tyler, the Creator called it his “FAVORITE FRANK SONG EVER. EVER. EVER.” Listen to the 10-minute track below. – Rap-Up
