While accompanying Jay Z on the “Magna Carta World Tour” in Europe, Timbaland has been previewing a new track presumably from his upcoming LP, Shock Value III, featuring Hov and Drake.
“New Timbo sh– make some noise!” Jay said before continuing with “You gotta sell these bitches a dream my n—a. N—as like Walt Disney around this bitch!”
Animated behind the DJ stand, Timbo cues up the track, which features an uptempo, oft-kilter beat, and raps along with the song’s audio. “If you wanna make a movie let me know,” he raps, before offering up the song’s hook, which features the line, “What you know ‘bout me? Not a mother-cking thang.”
So far, fans in Birmingham, United Kingdom and Paris, France have heard the as yet untitled and unreleased collaboration. Timbaland and Jay have been in a sonic zone since they’ve reunited after their brief rift.
“This is like if Quincy was working with Michael Jackson on ‘We Are The World’…but this is DJ Khaled in 2013″
Khaled sits down with Sway to explain the meaning behind his album title Suffering From Success, his relationship with Nicki Minaj, his record “Never Surrender” and more.
Mario compares intimacy to a popular party drug in “L.S.D.”, standing for “Love, Sex and Drugs”, from his upcoming Evolve album. Though this single has been released, the LP’s original release date was pushed from its original October release date to a currently unknown date. HNHH. PREVIOUS: Mario – Killa

Drake‘s heart-felt single “Hold On, We’re Going Home” has already been the subject of covers from the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Bebe Rexha and Blood Orange, now the latest attempt to recreate the single comes from Holy Ghost! as they’ve released a brand new spin on it. Linking together with Diddy’s Revolt TV, Holy Ghost! provides an interesting set of visuals to accompany their cover, as we see random images in a slideshow fashion appear on the screen. The group gives the track a “Dance Floor-Ready Edge,” and you can find out exactly what they mean by that by pressing the play button up above.

Kanye West is no stranger to pushing fashion boundaries. Before his Yeezus tour kicked off in Seattle this weekend, the producer/rapper rocked a provocative shirt featuring a half-naked Kim Kardashian accompanied by the word “Yeezus.”
TMZ has a photo of Ye’s t-shirt emblazoned with the image of Kim from what appears to be her 2007 Playboy photoshoot. Kim stands topless, covered by several strings of pearls.
The t-shirt was only the teaser for Ye’s controversial new tour. RapFix was on hand as Kanye and Jesus took over Seattle for an undoubtedly religious hip-hop experience. Kanye pulled out all the stops with flashing lights, faux snow, a mountain from which to rap atop and of course, a Jesus Christ figure.
“White Jesus, is that you?” Kanye asked at one point. Ye closed with 2004′s “Jesus Walks” and “Bound 2.” At the end, Kanye and his 12 female “disciples” bowed to the portrayal of Jesus on the mountain.
Check out Ye’s set list and catch the always entertaining artist on the road with Kendrick Lamar this year.
