Every Friday the Bossip Boombox will be bringing you a themed boombox and to kick it off we decided to highlight the frenzy that is Watch The Throne. No we’re not shoving more Yeezy and Hov down your musical mouth, we’re showcasing a couple of new artists signed to The Throne’s recording labels. Since you’re busy watching the throne, shouldn’t you become familiar with who else is sitting in the royal court? Today we chose to spotlight a couple newcomers signed to Jay Z’s label, RocNation. Throw ya diamonds in the sky people!
Lloyd- Money On Me
The latest release off of “King of Hearts”. A snippet of the song has been floating around but we finally came across the full version. Don’t speed through this, it’s actually nice.
J-Doe feat. Busta Rhymes, David Banner & T-Pain- Coke, Dope, Crack, Smack (Remix)
Although, you may not be familiar with him yet this newcomer and songwriter releases a hot remix, with the assistance Busta, Banner an T-Pain. We can only assume, he has some major clout already.
Frank Ocean- Thinking About You
In the late hours Mr. Ocean took to his Tumblr and released this song. Even though Frank Ocean hasn’t released many songs yet, he already gets the Bossip stamp of approval.
Cee-Lo Green feat. Tawiah- I Want You
Currently his single in the UK, the version pushed to radio is the same as that found on the album, however a fellow music-head notified me that the iTunes version listed Brit songstress Tawiah as a featured artist.
Bossip Boombox Bonus Time! Today we’re pairing up your favorite bad guy with your favorite ex G-UNIT member.
Bossip is happy to bring you the first installment of the ‘New Black Kids On The Block” Boombox. It’s a chance for us to introduce you to a couple of new artists who we think… no that we KNOW are pretty dope. So sit back and take notes because we think this group of singers will be making a lot of noise soon.
No matter how many jokes we may have made about Amy Winehouse’s whirlwind of a life, we were all hoping that she might get it together one day and live to her full potential. Sadly, that’s a day we will never see.
We’ve been bumping Amy in the office for most of the day, but rather than give you a trite compilation of songs you already know and possibly love, we figured we’d remember her by spotlighting a few other dope young female vocalists to watch.
But before we get to these young ladies, a warning we wish Amy Winehouse would have headed from herself…
