Brother Ali – Left In The Deck

Brother Ali releases his new project (20 plus minute stream above) on the same day that he goes on the road with Immortal Technique.

“Left In The Deck” is a collection of 10 raw, grimy recordings made in basements and hotel rooms around the world. This demo-tape style release was produced entirely by Jake One. It hasn’t been polished up for the market or cleaned for the radio. These songs were left in their original demo form and are intended only for my family of direct supporters. The beats are grimy and I feel like this is some of the best rhyming I’ve ever captured on tape. I want to release this directly to you.

Drake Talks About “Tuscan Leather” & Reveals “Paris Morton Music II” Is On N.W.T.S.

drake

Earlier this month Rolling Stone included Drake‘s upcoming album Nothing Was The Same in their fall music preview, and revealed that Jay-Z & Lil Wayne would be on the album as features. Today some more info from and tidbits from the album came to light. 40 and Drizzy spoke about the intro to the album titled “Tuscan Leather,” saying that it has a Whitney Houston sample and that 40 flipped it into three different beats for the three verses.‪

Of bombastic album opener “Tuscan Leather,” 40 says, “It’s a three-staged record – one sample flipped three different ways, with a verse over each beat.”

The other exciting part of the preview is that Drake reveals that the album features a sequel to his popular song “Paris Morton Music.” The first one was absolute flames so we really can’t even begin to imagine what kind of fire Drake is bringing for the sequel.‪

Drake, meanwhile, cites the standout track “Paris Morton Music II” as the clearest proof that he’s stepped up his game. “That track excites me from a rap standpoint, just getting off bars and different flows,” he says. “I played it for J. Cole, on some rap buddy-buddy shit, and he was like, ‘Damn!’”

‬With the album now dropping officially on September 24 and the official standard and deluxe covers now out, expect a lot more info in the coming weeks about the album.

The artwork for Drake’s upcoming album titled “Nothing was the Same!” The album was originally scheduled for a December release; however, Drake has decided to focus on the VMAs and has pushed the album release date back. It was originally scheduled to be released as of September 17th is now due to be released on September 24th. I personally don’t see anything alarming about that. I perfectly understand. What’s an additional 7 days to tweak things and make sure they are just right before release? The backcover of the album can be seen after the jump.
