G.O.O.D. Music was guests on BET‘s 106 & Park early today and they sat down for an interview and graced the stage performing hits such as “Mercy,” “New God Flow,” “Birthday Song,” and even “I Don’t Like“. 2 Chainz, Big Sean, CYHI The Prynce, Travis Scott, Common, Pusha T and Teyana Taylor all showed up, but their leader Kanye West didn’t. Maybe he ran out of white clothing and couldn’t color coordinate? Ha! Anyway, watch the G.O.O.D. Clique’s performances and interview after the cut.

Lady Gaga takes a shot at rapping on this demo track titled “Cake Like Lady Gaga” released by DJ White Shadow. Rumor has it that this could be included on her upcoming album ART POP, but that’s not confirmed.
If Nicki Minaj can get away with doing her best Lady Gaga impression for an entire pop album, why can’t Lady Gaga get away with rapping? Ha.
Maybe this is the sound Lady Gaga will be going for on her upcoming collaborations with Kendrick Lamar. It’s confirmed Gaga will be on Kendrick‘s upcoming single “PARTYNAUSEOUS” and it’s rumored the two will also have a collaboration on her album. We’ll see.
Reunited and it feels so good! Original Hot Boyz members Juvenile and Lil Wayne link up on “Picture Perfect“. The track also features Cash Money CEO Birdman and it’s the first of a few releases we’ll hear from Juvie and Wayne, according to Complex. Not going to front about this one, I’m feeling it.
Yesterday Kanye West presented the long awaited G.O.O.D. Music collaboration Cruel Summer to the world, which so far has been received with mixed reviews. How will it’s first week sales totals fair out? According to HDD it will debut at #2, selling between 170k-190k units.
The #1 release will likely be Pink’s The Truth About Love which is projected to sell 200-225k copies. Hold back your disappointment for now though because it’s not too late. You still have 5 more days to pick up your copy of Cruel Summer and help Kanye and the rest of G.O.O.D. Music debut at #1.
Mikkey Halsted keeps the new tunes coming with “Getting To The Money” produced by The Legendary Traxter. Grab his latest mixtape Castro here.
Kanye West speaks out on the creation of Cruel Summer as a whole including it’s packaging, videos that were shot, working with artists he and his crew look up to and more. Cruel Summer in stores now.
2 Chainz and Tyga lend verses to the official remix of Brandy‘s single “Put It Down“. Possibly one of the most annoying hooks I have ever heard.
Gucci Mane and Future link up on this new Trap God mixtape cut, “F*ck The World“. Produced by Mike Will.
