♥♥ DJ A-Track and collaborator Armand Van Helden recently unveiled the video for their killer dance track, “Barbara Streisand.” The song appears on the duo’s 2009 album, Armand Van Helden & A-Trak Present: Duck Sauce. The video was shot in the heart of New York City and features cameos from Kanye West, Diplo, ?uestlove, Santigold, Chromeo, Fafi, DJ Premier and many more! Of course, there’s a pretty cool Barbara Streisand look-alike in the video too! It seems as if the actual Barbara Streisand is the only one who didn’t make it in the video! Check it out below!
♥♥ Two of Amsterdam’s hottest and most promising producers, Full Crate and FS Green just finished the 5th installment of Melting Pot Music’s “Hi-Hat Club” series and are planning on releasing a new album entitled, Eggs and Pancakes on Oct. 22nd.

♥♥ In typical Blu fashion, the Los Angeles-based rapper quietly dropped his newest video, “You’re My Boy Blu” from the 2009 LP entitled, theGODleeBarnes.

♥♥ Peep the album art for N.E.R.D.‘s upcoming album, NOTHING, scheduled to drop on November 2nd. The cover was shot by famed fashion photographer Terry Richardson and shows Pharrell Williams rocking a head piece that resembles a native american headdress. Did somebody say “Chief“? (shameless plug)
♥♥ Hoodie Allen’s newest project, “Pep Rally” is a high energy, fun mixtape that cleverly combines indie sampling and hip hop music. It’s narrated with help from samples by Beach House, Florence + The Machine, The Black Keys and many more!
♥♥ Cali MC Droop-E is stuntin’ like his daddy E-40 with the release of his latest mixtape, BLVCK Diamond Life (AKA the Sade One). Built entirely around samples of Sade’s music, this project features laid back beats and gives the feel of a love letter from one of Sade’s biggest fans.
♥♥ Through live string instrumentation, the Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Ensemble featuring Aloe Blacc pay tribute to late great Guru (Gang Starr) with a beautiful arrangement of Gang Starr’s “Betrayal” and “Deliver the Word” by War which is also the sample for Gang Starr’s “Betrayal.”
♥♥ It looks as if Kanye West, Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, RZA, Pusha T and Cyhi the Prynce are not the only ones “So Appalled” these days. Rapper MC Hammer has taken offense to Jay-Z’s verse on the track that references him and has let the world know via twitter. Check out “So Appalled,” which is the latest in Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Friday series.
