Kendrick Lamar Reveals New Album Title: United States Of A.L.A.R.M


Kendrick Lamar took the world by storm after he dropped his “debut” album. The TDE camp are very secretive when it comes to their artist. So when need comes out to the public it must be big. Thanks to my good friends over at Rap Wave, the news has been shared that the Compton superstars next album, United States Of A.L.A.R.M. is due September of this year. Can’t wait to see how the campaign for this project is set up. Also, FREE AB-SOUL’S MUSIC TOP DAWG. #TheSuiteLife

UPDATE: WELP Its seems this was a fake story being passed around. Hopefully we do get the real info on Kendrick’s next LP soon..


Wiz Khalifa – MAAN (Man Of The Year Weedmix)

I’ve never actually listened to any of Wiz’s weedmixes. Actually I haven’t thoroughly listened to any of his new music. But for some reason I decided to check this out since I’m really into videos. The video & it’s quality is pretty cool. Couple cameos from the taylor gang members: Ty$, Berner, Chevy Woods. As for the actual song, eh… Wiz does his usual sing-song chorus which is cool but nothing amazing. Whoever mixed this record, used A LOT of reverb. Wiz didn’t really say much in the verses either. As a weed smoker, I appreciate it the references tho. #TheSuiteLife

Vine It: This Week’s Funniest Vines (Week 1)


Vine is the newest “social” app and the videos, or as we say “vines” from the app are taking over the internet. I come across some of the most interesting vines every single day. So I figured I’d put together a segment showcasing the interesting ones, mostly funny. Everybody needs a laugh. Expect this, every Friday or Saturday.

YG Breaks Down “Really Be (Smokin Drankin)”


The Bompton star sits with the good folks over at Life + Times to break down one of the standouts records from his debut album, “My Krazy Life.” This is pretty dope to hear the first person narrative. The Kendrick cameo would’ve been cool too cause he went off on this record. #TheSuiteLife


YG Describes An Average Day In Bompton

Current West Coast frontman YG is living the life right now. Headlining his own tour throughout the United States. A classic debut album in stores. And a best friend who happens to be the hottest producer out right now. My homie from the DMV Baker takes the time to interview the LA native while he makes a pit stop at The Fillmore in the DMV. YG lets the viewers know what a day in Bompton is like, at least for him !


Chief Keef – “No”

As a Chief Keef fan, I’m very upset at this. Not even gonna write a lot, gonna keep it nice and simple. R&B Sosa is a NOOOOO ! The song was so bad that I couldn’t even post it on here. Google that shit.


Tyga – “Chiraq To LA (Lil Durk & 40 Glocc Diss)” ft. The Game

My goodness ! I wasn’t expecting this. I was well aware of a response from Tyga for Lil Durk’s shots. But as a shock, the LA rapper grabs California’s own king of beef (PAUSE) The Game. Tyga gets to the point and says his piece. But Game BLACKS ! The Compton firestarter addresses his feelings towards 40 Glocc’s recent Instagram hoax. So much aggression. Then Game goes off on Durk. Definitely one of the hardest verses I’ve heard from him in a while. This is the best rendition of “Chiraq” I’ve heard this far. #TheSuiteLife

Problem – “Realest Niggas In Here (Produced By P-Lo)”

The Compton producer turned rapper teams up with The Bay’s Heartbreak Gang member, P-Lo to deliver a new record for all the “real niggas” out here. Definitely isn’t one of his best but the replay value is fair. Check out “Realest Niggas In Here”

Problem – “On The Way (Produced By P-Lo)”

California is definitely on the come up. Compton rapper Problem is one of the rappers bringing the ratchet LA sound to the forefront. Along with help from production team, League Of Starz & HBK Gang’s P-Lo, the Diamond Lane Music Group artist is helping craft the new West sound artists such as YG and Nipsey Hussle have been promoting. Problem grabs one of his in-house producers, P-Lo to release a new record entitled “On The Way.” An audio statement to the public letting everyone know Problem is coming to takeover the game and I definitely believe it. #TheSuiteLife
