Game feat Lil Wayne, Tyga, Wiz Khalifa and Chris Brown – Celebration [New Music]

Game recruits the help of some familiar friends including Lil Wayne, Tyga, WIz Khalifa, and Chris Brown for his latest single called ‘Celebration.’

It looks Game is already back in the studio prepping for his new album ‘F.I.V.E. (Fear Is Victory’s Evolution), and has just dropped the first track from the project fittingly called celebration.

The first single off of Game’s upcoming fifth album features a guest heavy list of big name rappers including Young Money’s Lil Wayne and Tyga, Taylor Gang head honcho Wiz Khalifa, and Chris Brown. Game opens up the first verse, while Chris Brown holds down the hook and second verse passing the track to Tyga for the third verse. Lil Wayne snatches up the fourth verse, while Wiz Khalifa closes things out.

Of course Game sampled the classic track from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony ’1st Of The Month.’ No release date on Game’s upcoming ‘F.I.V.E.’ album but we would guess end of the year considering this is the first single leaked off the project.

Listen to the debut of Game’s single ‘Celebration’ from Power 106 below.

Beedie – Cardiac Arrest & Beedie Sings The Blues (Music Video)

This is one of my favorite tracks from Beedie! Super dope sound and now we have some smooth visuals for it as well.

It’s a new week & that means Varsity Squad is back with another leak from their “Varsity Tryouts” series. This week Beedie decided to unleash a stunning visual from his recent album The Beat Bully LP, directed by Glass Canon Films. They filmed the 2-part music video in New York City, which starts with “Cardiac Arrest” produced by Czientist of Germany, and transitions into “Beedie Sings The Blues” produced by Pittsburgh’s own DJ Vex. After receiving over 50,000 views on his last video, Beedie along with Jon Quest are hard at work completing the VS album, due out late this year.

Wiz Khalifa’s Ten Best Hooks

Since things have been slow on the Wiz Khalifa side of things lately we decided to have a little fun and compile a list of the top ten Wiz Khalifa hooks (aka the chorus for those who don’t speak rapper lol). Wiz Khalifa’s ability to be versatile on hooks is part of the reason why he is such a special artist. Below is our list of what we think are the ten best, if you don’t like it you can voice your opinion in the comments section below or the forums.

#10 Wiz Khalifa – The Thrill
“The Thrill” originally appeared on B.A.R. and was a party song from the day it was released. Wiz does a great job on this hook as he spits over a dope Empire Of The Sun sample.

9-1 after the jump!

Wiz Khalifa Wins BET’s Best New Artist Award

Wiz Khalifa Best New Artist Award

Wiz Khalifa took home the Best New Artist award at the 2011 BET Awards held Sunday night in Los Angeles. Wiz Khalifa‘s rise to fame is attributed to social media sites such as twitter, youtube, etc. When your mom likes songs by Wiz Khalifa, you know he’s big. His rise to fame is apparent with over 9 million “likes” on Facebook and 2 million followers on Twitter, proving he will be around for quite some time. This is a great award for the Pittsburgh native and we’re glad to see him taking home this award. Proof that hard work pays off.

Wiz Khalifa said “They need a taller mic for me I am not used to winning stuff. I want to thank everyone at rostrum records, everyone at atlantic, all my fans, The Taylor and all the young people who promote positive and just enjoying yourself, this is for y’all.”
