Snoopzilla, Snoop Dogg‘s tentative name for his “Funk” project, recently teamed up with Dam-Funk to drop a soulful EP, 7 Days of Funk. The collaborative project was unique in its sound, at least in terms of its 2013 release. Hearing Snoop over these dope funk sounds was in no way a surprise, at he is often seen vibing to old school sounds in his movie roles. What did Dam-Funk have to say about working with Snoop, though? Read up below!
Staying true to their word, Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip drop a collaborative mixtape, The Abstract & The Dragon. Although the two don’t stray too far from their original roots, they spice it up with a few remixes and features. The new mixtape also provides a few originals, including “Thank You.” We love it. Takes us back a little, in a good way.
Off of the July 2013 Rich Gang album, Birdman, Detail & Kendrick Lamar drop the video for “100 Favors.” Detail’s role is the crooner, while Birdman and Kendrick drop a couple bars in this banger. The video is quite fancy, featuring the rappers roaming around in a mansion and outside chillin’, pool side, with pretty girls. Pretty dope. We can appreciate it.
Very dope track from Roc Marciano and Action Bronson, off Roc’s new album, Marci Beacoup, “456.” Sampling Kool G Rap‘s track, Roc and Action give it a smoother feel, while still keeping the East Coast rapper feel.
It’s finished! Justin Bieber completes his #MusicMondays series and creates a temporary collection of all tracks he released for it.

You can stream the project below – did we mention the official trailer for Believe will be on the project?
Life post-Grammy nomination must be grand. Especially for Mack Wilds, who has been having a very successful interview streak this week. Most recently, he hits the stage of “The Arsenio Hall Show” and kicked off Arsenio’s show with a capturing performance of “Own It.”
Wilds says he found out about his nomination through his label, and almost wrecked his Richmond, VA hotel room. He said that because the Grammys mean so much to him, he wants to take the people who have influenced him the most with him that night: his father and grandfather.
After having appeared in Jay-Z‘s “Roc Boys” video, Wilds says he and Jay stayed very close. He says Jay has taught him lessons along the way, and the one that stuck out the most was when Jay told him never to ask for handouts. He encouraged Wilds to keep working hard and said that the handouts would come on their own.
