TheSource Feed - 7 hours 56 min ago

B.oB. continues to ride the wave of his newly released album, ETHER, by dropping his hilarious music video for his single, “Mr. Mister”. The Atlanta rapper showcases his creativity and versatility by literally recreating nearly every single “mister” he mentions in the track. In addition to nailing an impressive visual, B.o.B. potentially could have a new world record on his hands. In the video, he changes costumes over twenty times. This accomplishment trumps the number of outfit changes Taylor Swift had in her “Blank Space” music video, which was the current title-holder of the record.

The “Mr. Mister” video pays homage to some of pop culture’s most recognizable figures, such as Bruce Lee, The Power Rangers and Mr. Clean. The detail-oriented visual also consists of B.o.B. recreating iconic hip-hop moments, including shots of Eazy E in Compton and the infamous Tupac Shakur bath tub photo.

ETHER boasts impressive features appearances from artists such as  Lil Wayne, Cee Lo Green, Usher, Big KRIT and Young Dro . You can purchase the album here. B.o.B. is currently on the road for his “The Elements Tour”, and you can purchase tickets to a show near you here. Watch the video for “Mr. Mister” above!

The New York Knicks Are Willing To Trade Kristaps Porzingis For An Top 4 Draft Pick

TheSource Feed - 11 hours 15 min ago

PHIL!!…What are you doing?!

These are the exact words that are being mimicked by super #KnicksTape fans as they been hearing the wild rumors regarding the recent decisions Phil Jackson is planning to make for the team. According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks are looking to acquire Kansas Jayhawks forward Josh Jackson. Jackson, a projected top 3 lottery pick in this year’s NBA Draft in which teams like the Phoenix Suns currently hold picks, has become eye candy for Phil. As with recent talks, Phil been displaying willingess to acquire the pick, going so far as to insinuate he would give up his young promising superstar in Kristaps Porzingis.

Porzingis, who averaged 18.1 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game in 2016-17 season, hasn’t been on Phil’s good side lately. There has been tension coming from Phil aimed directly at the “hooping unicorn” for skipping the team’s exit meeting to return home to Latvia. Prior to this, the 2nd year sensation expressed frustration with the Knicks’ inconsistency, particularly with their execution of Jackson’s beloved triangle offense.

Recently, the 11-time NBA World Champion came out to the media and said “As much as we love this guy, we have to do what’s best for the club”. Now if Phil doesn’t want to get ran out of New York for good, he should know that he better leave Porzingis on his roster. After all, the damage has been done for the bashing of his all star forward Carmelo Anthony. Phil, don’t put the nail in the coffin by letting go the league’s brightest star.

The Best Of: Albums 2017 – Mid-Year Review

TheSource Feed - 11 hours 51 min ago

The summer is here and the year 2017 has graced us with some amazing music releases in its first six months. From Kendrick Lamar’s huge comeback, to Future’s week-to-week, back-to-back double album releases, to reminiscing with Faith Evans and Biggie, The Source presents to you the round-up of the best album of 2017 (so far).

#17. The King & I, Faith Evans & Notorious B.I.G.
Label: Rhino Entertainment Company

Twenty years since his death, The Notorious B.IG.’s widow Faith Evans has resurrected his voice the duet album The King & I. Of course the couple worked together a few times before Biggie’s murder in the infamous drive-by shooting, but this album takes their collaborations to a whole new level. The album’s production is smooth, with Stevie J seamlessly blending the late rapper and Faith’s vocals on tracks like “It Was Worth It,” the album’s intro “A Billion,” and the single “Legacy.” Faith delivers impressive vocal performances, while the familiar Big verses seem to get lost in the shuffle of 25 tracks. However it’s worth noting the tracks produced by DJ Premier and Just Blaze help give Big a voice and the album that true Biggie feel. The only thing the album lacks is cohesion, with the length of the album and the use of certain Big lines feeling a bit out of place and diluted-like the recycling of parts from “Who Shot Ya?” on “Somebody Knows,” which finds Evans singing about Biggie’s murder as he raps about his own death with lines from the classic diss track. On The King & I fans hear the tale of Faith and Big’s love from the songstress’s perspective, amazing features from artists like Busta Rhymes, 112, and Snoop Dogg, some awkward skits, and stellar production, amongst what feels like a muddled representation of the late rapper. – Nadirah Simmons. #16. Neva Left, Snoop Dogg
Label: Doggystyle Records Neva Left is an album that sees Snoop Dogg return more to his roots than previous offerings have and marks 25 years in the game for Snoop. The overall sound of Neva Left is somewhat of a throw back to the Doggystyle and Tha Doggfather era, with a classic west coast feel throughout its production and delivery. The 16-track release is solid throughout its duration with numerous stand out tracks, including the lead single “Mount Kushmore” featuring Redman, Method Man and B-Real and the anthem “420 (Blaze Up)” with Wiz Khalifa & Devin The Dude. “Vapors (DJ Battlecat Remix)” is another stand out, building upon the original Vapors version released on the Tha Doggfather album. The title track Neva Left utilises the classic The Charmels sample (as used also on Wu-Tang Clan’s C.R.E.A.M.) to great success and “Bacc In Da Dayz” featuring Big Tray Deee are both tracks commanding high replay value. The album also features notable appearances from Too $hort and KRS-One, cementing Neva Left as one the best west coast albums of 2017 so far. Neva Left peaked at #54 on the Billboard 200 (#26 on the Billboard Top R&B/ Hip-Hop Albums) as well as charting internationally and is sure to become a favorite amongst more Snoop traditionalists in the years to come. – The Lesson 92.7 w/ DJ Sanchez. #15. Plata O Plomo, Fat Joe & Remy Ma
Label: EMPIRE Plata O Plomo is the first joint album together by Fat Joe & Remy Ma and managed to live up to the extended hype surrounding it. The Terror Squad duo have collaborated extensively in the past, with their highpoint before this album being undoubtedly the timeless classic “Lean Back” that went #1, Gold and charted highly around the world. The clear stand out track on Plata O Plama is the lead single and one of the club anthems of recent years, “All The Way Up” featuring French Montana and Infared. This single itself has so far gone double Platinum, propelling Fat Joe back into the Top 30 charts for the first time in a decade, earning Grammy, BET amongst numerous other award nominations. Beyond this, the album is solid from front to back with “Swear to God” featuring Kent Jones and “Money Showers” featuring Ty Dolla $ign other key stand out songs. While none of the three subsequently released singles could live up to the impossibly lofty heights and expectations created through “All The Way Up,” Plata O Plama cements Fat Joe & Remy Ma’s reintroduction to the masses as a force to be reckoned with. – The Lesson 92.7 w/ DJ Sanchez.

#14. The Chief, Jidenna
Label: Epic Records

If versatility was the goal, The Chief hits the mark. A definite genre-bender, the costume changes presented within Jidenna’s studio debut may have proven to be a bit exhausting to some. But, a clear track record of bouncy singles, the next never quite sounding like the last, was enough to point to what The Chief was poised to be: a testament to the Wondaland signee’s impressive range. Opening with a conversation with Jidenna’s uncle, The Chief’s seemingly incongruent track list is bound together by a tactical rope in the form of the elder’s words of wisdom. Within the 14-track opus, Jidenna adopts a slew of roles and he acts them out with ease. Just as fiercely as he rips his opposition to shreds on tracks “A Bull’s Tale” and “Long Live The Chief,” he is as much a natural at penning heartfelt odes as seen in “Bambi” and whipping up hot takes like the piercing “White N-ggas” cut. – Milca Pierre.

#13. Ransom 2, Mike Will Made-It
Label: Interscope

Ransom 2 displayed Mike Will Made-It’s abilities as both a producer and curator, bringing together some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop today. Unique beats and melodies coupled with artists like Pharell, Andrea, Rae Sremmurd, and Lil Yachty make this a unique, diverse trap music listening experience. Singles “Gucci On My” featuring YG, 21 Savage and Migos and “Perfect Pint” featuring Rae Sremmurd, Gucci Mane and Kendrick Lamar are just the tip of the iceberg of this multi-faceted project. In a section of a genre that constantly evolves just as people’s interests do, Mike Will Made-It maintains his niche here. – Armon Sadler.

WSB-TV ONCE AGAIN SHOWS LOVE TO A LATE HIP HOP LEGEND

On The Rise: Quentin The 5th Floats On New 4:44 AM Track

TheSource Feed - 12 hours 39 min ago

Quickly maneuvering through a groovy track, Quentin The 5th begins to cement himself as a vibe setter, and uses his music to unlock all of the things going on in his mind. Down to the artwork, Quentin The 5th proves to be a mystery, but a mystery that he himself finds a way to uncover on wax.

This “4:44 AM” track feels like something that could’ve been on ‘Section 80’. It was soulful, thought provoking, the bars were still of the street rap variety, but they were witty, and filled with metaphors.

We think that Quentin The 5th has potential to be one of those rap stars, like Kendrick Lamar, who gained their stardom off of straight rap skills. If he continues to trust his skill, Quentin The 5th can be a festival master, he can sell a lot of records, and attract a core following.

Check out 4:44 AM on Quentin The 5th’s SoundCloud below.
