GOOD Music’s collaboration album Cruel Summer will hit the streets August 7th.
Interestingly enough, the song is being billed on iTunes as a Kanye song with features from the rest of G.O.O.D. Music. Upon listening though, “Mercy” sounds nothing like a pure Kanye song and is definitely a collaborative work. Lyrically, there isn’t much content here aside from the hearty dose of braggadocio from each rapper, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing when its delivered from rappers as technically talented as these guys are. You can grab it below and be sure to purchase the single on iTunes now.
Here’s a brand new track from Clipse‘s Pusha T titled “What Dreams Are Made Of”, which will be included on Pusha’s forthcoming album Fear of God II: Let Us Pray. The new album will be out November 8th via Decon and G.O.O.D. Music and also includes Pusha’s well-received collaboration with OFWGKTA‘s Tyler, the Creator.

I completely slept on Gilbere Forte. I admit: it took an appearance on a BET Cyper and The Hundreds presenting his newest mixtape/EP for me to listen to him. But now that I’ve listened to Some Dreams Never Sleep, I can’t stop; this Philadelphia MC is on point. I mean, look at the star-studded cast he managed to pull together for the 11-track project: Big K.R.I.T., Jim Jones, Pusha T, Asher Roth, Casey Veggies, and more.
Gilbere easily goes toe-to-toe with each of these rappers, spitting memorable verse after memorable verse. He’s young, he has a message, and he’s ready to shine. You can download three choice cuts below and if you like what you hear, the full EP is available for free after the break.
