New Music: "Our Streets" by DJ Premier feat. A$AP Ferg DJ Premier

To celebrate the relaunch of Payday Records, the reputed ‘90s imprint known for being the first to sign JAY-Z and help foster the careers of Jeru the Damaja, Mos Def (via signing his first group U.T.D.), Guru and more, the label’s original founder and former Gang Starr manager, Patrick Moxley, has reunited with DJ Premier, releasing a new single “Our Streets.”

The track features A$AP Ferg, marking the first time the two New York natives have worked together, with Ferg referring to the opportunity as a dream come true.

“It's a dream to be able to work with the legendary DJ Premier on this record,” Ferg said, speaking of the track. “Preemo has worked with all the NYC hip-hop icons and greats - Nas, Biggie, Guru, Hov, KRS-one, and The Lox. Just knowing I was working with him pushed me as an MC.”

Preemie returned the sentiment, explaining how Ferg let him take the wheel creatively.

"With Ferg, or anybody I work with, they already know my history so they know that I come from the 90s era” DJ Premier added. “Ferg just automatically said 'Don't do what I've been doing on my albums - I want you to do a Preemo style and let me show I can rap to that,' so I was like 'let's do it.' Everybody was happy off jump - no suggestions, no 'I think we should go this direction' - it was an automatic in, out, done, in one day."

Back in the '90s, DJ Premier played an integral role with Payday Records, making this new collaborative release a much appreciated full-circle moment for hip-hop enthusiasts across the board. Check it out above.

New Music: “Lois Lane” by Porcelan Porcelan

After garnering the attention of many new ears with the release of her debut single “The Real Thing Don’t Change,” which broke the Top 40 on the Urban AC chart this past fall, singer Porcelan returns with new music.

Her sophomore single, “Lois Lane,” is a beautiful offering, exploring the emotional space and vulnerability that new love brings.

Of the track, Porcelan says, “Every woman wants a strong man in their lives that makes her feel secure. The ideal fantasy is to be swept off your feet and protected by a strong man who will rescue you from anything that can bring you harm, and Superman’s love for Lois Lane symbolizes that.”

New Music: Saweetie remixes Duo Lipa’s “IDGAF” Dua Lipa x Saweetie

Dua Lipa has been providing banger after banger lately, with the pop singer cementing her reputation as one of 2018’s most exciting talents with each release, three of which just so happen to be charting on the Hot 100 currently.

Saweetie, a fast-rising rapper from the Bay Area, found herself inspired by the London-born singer, giving her track “IDGAF” the official remix treatment.

For the remake, the “ICY GRL” rapper adds several verses, further adding to the celebratory unbothered vibe the track proudly encompasses.

“How it feel, how it feel, how it feel? / Sign off on our connection / And I sign onto a deal,” the fresh Warner Bros signee spits. “Shoulda kept a hundred / Man, you shoulda kept it real / Cause I realize you fake / And you lost all your appeal / It don't hurt when I see you with her / You was always insecure / And believed what you heard.”

Fans can catch Saweetie at the 2018 Miami installment of Rolling Loud, set to take place next weekend (May 11-13) and be livestreamed exclusively by REVOLT TV.
