As Chris Brown applies the finishing touches to his upcoming album F.A.M.E. the anticipation is growing with each day that passes. But fear not because there isn’t much longer to wait, it drops on March 22nd.

In the meantime, you can treat your ears to this little number in which Breezy collaborates with Taylor Gang’s Wiz Khalifa. Rumour has it that this track will feature on the deluxe edition of the LP. SME would be surprised if it isn’t coming to you via the airwaves soon.

TUNE.

[VIDEO] Diggy Simmons XXL Freshman 2011 (Freestyle) by wearesme

Diggy Simmons has been named as one of XXL’s Freshman of 2011 (11 of the hottest prospects in HipHop/Rap right now) and rightfully so. Granted; he has the best mentor any aspiring rapper could ask for in the form of Run DMC founder Rev Run – his father, but he hasn’t rested on his laurels.

He has the witty lyrics of someone twice his age and as you can see from the freestyle below, he flows effortlessly.

Here’s what Diggy had to say on being selected for the Freshman Cover; “Being here means a lot. It’s always been something I thought was real cool, as a new artist to be on, and it was something that I wanted to be on this year. When I heard [I made it], I was like, ‘What?’ You know, that’s something I was freaking out over, because I was putting in all this hard work, and to see it, you know, actually see the things come to past my ways, it’s just crazy. There are certain goals that people wanna reach, and being a new artist, I’m sure—well, hip-hop artist—I’m sure being on the Freshmen [cover] is one of them. And that was something that I definitely wanted to do. I mean, being here is crazy.”

[VIDEO] J. Cole freestyles at ‘Roc Nation Presents’ L.A show by wearesme

J. Cole performed alongside Wale at the House of Blues in Los Angeles last week, as part of a ‘Roc Nation Presents’ evening.

During the show Cole gave an impromptu freestyle with some new big boy bars; “Nigga probably only got arrested for weed and now you’re talking about that don shit / Don Perignon shit / Not gonna cut it like scissors on my lawn shit”. However, we’re not a fan of all the theatrical “woo’s” from the crowd, so ignore them and appreciate the lyrical content!

[FRESH VIDEO] Dr. Dre feat. Eminem & Skylar Grey – I Need A Doctor by wearesme

The brand new video for Dr. Dre’s latest single featuring both Eminem and Skylar Grey was premired in the US earlier this evening.

After it was initially only released via the MTV.com website we had to endure the painful wait for it to be uploaded on Drakes VEVO channel as it was not available to UK residents. After considerable delay, the video is finally here and naturally we’re sharing it with you guys.

The video sees Dre emphatically crash his Ferrari as his life flashes before his eyes; leaving him in a coma for several years, before Em’s heartfelt words by his bedside bring him back to life. It signs out with Dre paying a visit to his deceased friend and fellow N.W.A member; Eazy-E.

[SME INTRODUCING] Run Jack Run by wearesme

Left to Right: Maz, Skip, Scout

Who? Run Jack Run is a 3 man band made up of two brothers: Skip & Scout (Singers & Professional Actors) and Maz (Producer/DJ). All music is written, produced, performed, mixed & mastered by RJR.

Yard? North London

Signed? It’s only a matter of time

Sounds Like? Grindie

Big Tune? Howl

Not only are SME proud to call these talented chaps our friends, but we also have the pleasure of hearing the amazing results of their new project Run Jack Run and bringing it to the entourage first.

We’ve been waiting patiently for some time as the boys worked hard on this project; desperate to hear the fruits of their labour. But being the perfectionists that they are, we knew it was going to be worth the wait and they certainly didn’t disappoint, going live today with their new website and material.

Below is their debut music video titled Howl, shot and directed by Rohan Blair-Mangat. Atmospheric, artistic, inspirational. And that’s just the video. The song draws on different emotions through Skip & Scout’s contrasting styles over Maz’s productions.

And as if that wasn’t enough, below are some more snippets of what’s to come from the band:
