The Plug – Feb 1st 2016

February 5, 2016


What would rap beef be in 2016 without the world wide web? We weighed in on the whole Kanye vs Wiz Twitter debacle, give our two cents on the situation, and who we thought took the L here.

Drake also had the Twitter and the internet going nuts with his brand new joint, “Summer 16”. We ran it and discussed our thoughts on the record and all the little jabs thrown.

We also premiered brand new music from our very own, Bozack Morris! His debut joint, “Mak 90” features one of the fastest rising stars in the game, Conway. Shit is rugged rap at it’s finest. Click clack boom nigga!

New music from: Wiz Khalifa, Kanye West, Travis Scott x The Weeknd, 50 Cent, The Game, Audio Push, Ty Dolla Sign, and more including the world premiere of the Junia T’s brand new one!

The Plug – Jan 18th 2016

January 19, 2016

It’s been over a year now since the rap game lost one of it’s brightest young personalities, ASAP Yams. He was a founding member of the ASAP Mob and an integral part of getting that entire movement off the ground which helped to not only launch the careers of Rocky, Ferg, and the other members but affiliates like Joey Fatts and many more. We paid our respects to the self proclaimed, “Puerto Rican R. Kelly”, and ran through some of the ASAP Mob bangers this week.


New music from Kanye West x Kendrick Lamar x Madlib, Travis Scott x The Weeknd, Black Milk, King Hus, D.I.T.C, Pusha T, Rick Ross, Timbaland x Young Thug, Audio Push and much more.
