Drake’s “Views from The 6″(the title track to his upcoming album of the same name) has leaked online. Rumor has it that the cut is about his fling with Rihanna during a trip to Paris(Listen carefully & you’ll hear a quick sample of RiRi’s voice when Drake says “Melissa”). An emcee named E Batt also appears on the song…and he took to Twitter, swearing that he wasn’t the source of the track’s early debut. Oh well, you know the game. Listen while you can. You know it won’t be here long.

A Toast to Talib

August 24, 2014

This video has been circulating for the past two days, but we chose to post it here as a reminder to readers that despite the slanted media portrayal, intelligent, articulate and passionate Hip Hop artists do exist. Talib Kweli has never been one to run away from difficult issues. He tackles each problem head on and has always been a “man of the people.” His tireless dedication to the upliftment and empowerment of the working class must always be credited and remembered. He is the living embodiment of Hip Hop in its most pure form – A brilliant and creative artist who follows his own lead, but also possesses the kind of clear vision and positive outlook that will inspire future leaders of tomorrow. So it is with great honor that we toast Mr. Kweli with a big Insomniac salute. This one’s for you.
