J.R. is young energetic and self-sufficient. He is very in touch with his fans and what’s going on in the world around him. He looks good with us and we need his energy on the label.”
To celebrate the occasion, Donato provides a music video for the Paris Beuller produced, “Couldn’t Wait.” This is the last leak from Donato’s mixtape, ‘North Pole’, which drops on Thursday.

Wiz Khalifa kicks off a new DayToday series with ‘Blacc Up In This Bitch’. In this clip, Wiz speaks on the significance of his ‘Blacc Hollywood Big Secret Tour’. Curren$y makes a quick cameo.
In a new interview with HardKnockTV, Wiz Khalifa discusses a number of things including Mac Miller leaving Rostrum, what would make the perfect artist, and more. Wiz also breaks down his 5 favorite rap albums of all time.
The most notable part of the interview comes when Wiz explains that he doesn’t want to be labeled as a “stoner” anymore. Wiz explained that he wants to be known as more than just that as he makes more major moves.
Without a doubt, many Taylors consider “Be Easy” as one of the best tracks from Wiz Khalifa’s classic mixtape, ‘Prince Of The City 2’. On his follow up mixtape, ‘Star Power’, Wiz released a new remix to the song and that is where we go for this weeks ‘Khalifa Throwback Thursday’.
The “Be Easy” remix was track #5 from the 2008 mixtape release and featured a guest line up of Pittsburgh artists Boaz, Kev Tha Hustla (Chevy Woods), and Young Ro.
