Legal issues notwithstanding, life has to go on as planned, so it’s back to the music for Gucci Mane, who released his new LP, Trap House III, Thursday (May 23) on his Bandcamp page.
The Brick Squad general planned to release the third installment of his Trap House series via iTunes, but with that process stalled, Guwop has taken matters into his own hands. The 22-track project (17 songs, plus five bonus tracks) includes an impressive list of guest features, including 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross and the newest member of the Brick Squad, Chief Keef.
On it, the “Wasted” MC keeps it all the way “Trap” and hammers home his dislike for fellow Atlantans Young Jeezy and T.I. on the diss song, “Birds Of A Feather.”
Fans can listen to the album here and purchase the set for $ 6 here.
Having previously worked together on Kendrick Lamar‘s good kid, m.A.A.d. city standout, “B*tch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” the TDE emcee now looks to repay the favor to Robin Hannibal and Coco O., who come together as Quadron. “Better Off” is to be highlighted on the tandem’s forthcoming album, Avalanche, accounting for the lone feature from the work. In regards to the collaborative track, Hannibal had this to say:
We only have one feature on our new album, and we are elated that it’s Kendrick Lamar. He invited us to collaborate on his own album, and we had such a great time working with him that we asked him if he wanted to be part of our project as well. We are so happy for all his success and we are very proud of this song. We wanted to have more of a fluid song that wasn’t too over structured and had a bit of a bedroom/after hours vibe to it.
Avalanche will be arriving on June 4, so until then, enjoy the sole tag team cut from the effort by pressing play below. This one is good, right?
With the other half of the dopehouse in attendance (as well as sitting down with Jay Rock for an upcoming Life + Times segment), TDE kicked off their nationwide tour last night in Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan.

There’s already fifty-leven remixes on the Internet of Rocko’s controversial yet catchy tune, “U.O.E.N.O.,” so why not one more? This time around, Black Hippy put their stamp on the track and knocked it out of the park.
For the uninitiated, Black Hippy is Compton’s lyrically potent four horsemen made up of Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q and hip-hop’s new crown prince, Kendrick Lamar. The TDE collective slices up the track with the precision of a Ginsu knife, with each MC dropping lyrical gems.
For his part, Jay Rock really stepped into the cipher and reminded fans why he was the first member of the crew to get burn nationwide. But it was Kendrick, who took home the crown as MTV’s Hottest MC, that reigned supreme, spitting rapid fire excellence and even shouting out MTV’s Sway.
“Anything after that is just a bonus/And I been in the lab with my opponents, and since Sway done swayed that list, he got a flat screen the next morning,” he rhymes.
Listen to Black Hippy put their stamp on the track below:

As expected, Daft Punk is banking in their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with Random Access Memories. The record, which was released on Tuesday, May 21, is likely to sell up tp 300,000 units in its first week of sale. This would earn the French duo the second-largest debut week this year according to Nielsen SoundScan, following Justin Timberlake’s monster start of 968,000 for his The 20/20 Experience. This would also mean that Random Access Memories will have sold more than Daft Punk’s last studio release, Human After All, which has just sold 125,000 copies in the U.S. to date.
In addition, the LP has topped the iTunes charts, where the album could be pre-ordered, in 21 Western countries — the U.S., the UK, France, Germany, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
