This time, veteran producer Sean C is doing the duties. He’s also behind the first single ‘Thought vs. Everybody’ which has been shared today. Listen below.

If you remember, this was one of the new tracks that the Roots member had debuted during his NPR Home Concert back in April. This is lyrical exercise at its best.

Please join us in celebrating Juice’s life by enjoying this album. Juice’s legacy will live forever; LEGENDS NEVER DIE!”

Kid Cudi and Eminem Team Up on ‘The Adventures of Moon Man & Slim Shady’

Shady’s back with some help from Kid Cudi.
Mr. Rager teams up with the Rap God on their first-ever collaboration “The Adventures of Moon Man & Slim Shady.” The Dot Da Genius-produced track finds Cudder bringing the rage while Shady shouts out Lil Wayne (“Got a little green, but I don’t do weed / Purp nor lean, that’s Tunechi / That’s New Orleans”) and disses Drew Brees following his comments about disrespecting the flag (“F**k Drew Brees”).
Em also addresses his place in hip-hop (“King of Rap? / Nah, their words, not mine / King of swear words and not lying”) and the pandemic (“Don’t wanna wear a mask and they’re just scoffin’ / And that’s how you end up catchin’ the shit off ’em / I just used the same basket as you shoppin’ / Now I’m in a fu**in’ casket from you coughing”).
Plus, he speaks on the innocent Black lives lost to police brutality: “Prayers to George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery / How the f**k is it that so many cops are dirty? / Stop man please officer I’m sorry / But I can’t breathe when I got you on top of me / Your goddamn knee’s in my carotid artery.”

The song came together after Cudi put out the call on social media in May. “@Eminem rap God. Help!” he tweeted. Em said he was unaware that Cudi was trying to reach him when he spoke to Lil Wayne on Young Money Radio, but they eventually connected.
Cudi previously linked with Travis Scott on “The Scotts,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Prior to that, he released “Leader of the Delinquents,” his first solo release since 2016’s Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’.
He is now readying his seventh studio album, Entergalactic, inspired by his upcoming adult animated music series for Netflix. Additionally, he is set to appear in this summer’s Bill & Ted Face the Music and HBO’s coming-of-age series “We Are Who We Are,” which debuts in September.

Listen to Kanye West Freestyle for Forbes

Kanye West freestyles for Forbes.
While opening up to the magazine about his bid for the White House, the presidential hopeful occasionally broke out into verse, delivering spontaneous raps on topics including President Trump, coronavirus, and even the O.J. Simpson trial.
Now Forbes has shared three freestyles from Ye’s “rambling” four-hour interview.
In the first freestyle, dubbed “This Is What the Covid’s Made,” the billionaire rapper reflects on the impact of the pandemic. “Try to keep us quiet, cause riots / This is what the COVID’s made,” raps Ye, who claims he had coronavirus in February.
In addition to name-checking his wife Kim Kardashian and her parents Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian, he takes a shot at Donald Trump. “How about we stop hiding in the bunkers and be a real man?” he asks.

In a second freestyle, titled “Thou Shalt Not Kill,” he addresses the O.J. Simpson trial. “Now I’m not saying if O.J. did it or O.J. did not… I do not know. But when I lived in my father’s house and I saw that verdict come, as a black person we felt that it was a victory.”
He also recites lyrics from his new single “Wash Us in the Blood” featuring Travis Scott. When the reporter asks if he’s against the death penalty, Ye responds, “Thou shall not kill.”

On the third freestyle, called “This Is Earth,” he raps about his drug addiction. “Look at all the perks / I was addicted to percs / Drug addiction, for the devil it works,” says Ye.
At the end, the reporter suggests that he has found his campaign song, to which he replies, “We got way more.”
