Hear This Snippet Of Wiz Khalifa And Nas’ ‘We Dem Boyz Remix’

Wiz Khalifa is riding high with his current single “We Dem Boyz,” but Mister Cap plans to take things a level higher on the song’s upcoming remix.

On Tuesday, just two days following his Hot 97 Summer Jam performance, Wiz told the stationthat he plans to drop a new “We Dem Boyz” remix with Nas, then on Wednesday he previewed a small piece of the song on his Instagram.

These days, the majority of rap remixes feature MCs delivering new verses over the same (or similar) beat to the original, but Wiz switched it up. With this new version, the Taylor Gang captain chose a slower instrumental, and instead of chanting “we dem boyz” he’s now singing the popular lyric with more harmony.

On May 26, while Wiz was out performing at the Soundset Festival, he took a IG pic with Nas and announced the remix earlier this week.

“You know why I got Nas man,” he said during his Hot 97 interview on Tuesday. “Nas is the original bottle-popper, designer clothes-rocker, weed smoker, young, fly n—a. He was doin’ all that, spittin’. He was puttin’ it out there in a way, n—as never heard that before. And I feel like our generation they need to re-see that from Nas.”

Dr. Dre Makes Apple Debut During Worldwide Developers Conference

Dr. Dre talks with Apple software chief Craig Federighi during a phone call into the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference.

Dr. Dre made his public debut as an Apple executive during a phone call as part of the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference today (June 2), according toappleinsider.

The rapper-producer received a phone call from Apple software chief Craig Federighi, the site says.

“Dre said that he’s excited to begin life at Apple,” according to a story on apple insider, “before joking about what time he’d have to show up to work every day in order to beat notoriously early-rising Chief Executive Tim Cook.”

Apple says that it acquired Beats for its streaming service, not its line of headphones, as Cook has said that Beats provides Apple with an advantage in the streaming world.

Beats Music launched its music streaming service in January. It reportedly features a catalog of 20 million songs.

Last month, Apple purchased Beats Electronics for $3 billion.

“I’ve always known in my heart that Beats belonged with Apple,” Jimmy Iovine, who co-founded Beats Electronics with Dr. Dre, said in a statement May 28. “The idea when we started the company was inspired by Apple’s unmatched ability to marry culture and technology. Apple’s deep commitment to music fans, artists, songwriters and the music industry is something special.”

During the call with Dr. Dre today, Federighi also demonstrated how iPhones will be able to place phone calls and talk via a Mac computer’s microphone and speakers.

J. Cole “Top 5 Productions For Other Artists”

J. Cole is a monster on the mic and behind the boards. HipHopDX’s Sparkle Pratt picks the top five beats Cole gave to other artists.

J. Cole is known for his lyrical bars and dope metaphors, but have you really sat down to look at his production catalog? Besides producing nearly all of his own music, J. Cole has produced for some of the top artists in the game. Time to revisit five dope tracks that J. Cole has produced for other artists. Let’s start off with one that everyone knows.

Kendrick Lamar – “HiiiPower”

J. Cole produced Kendrick Lamar’s lead single “HiiiPoWer” for his 2011 independent album Section 80. Believe it or not, this was the first collaboration between the two artists. The song was created to further explain the HiiiPoWeR movement. J. Cole used samples from Pharoahe Monch’s “Simon Says,” Kanye West’s “So Appalled,” and Sixtoo’s “Duration Project Part 9.” The track also featured additional background vocals from Top Dawg Entertainment affiliate, the late Alori Joh. Kendrick Lamar spoke with The Come Up Show about the collaboration saying, “His production is crazy, man. The first time we locked in, he played about 10 beats. I wanted 11 of ‘em.”

Before this track was released, rumors of Kendrick and Cole dropping a collaborative album had surfaced but as of yet, nothing has come.

Fabolous – “Louis Vuitton”

J. Cole was featured on and produced Fabolous’ “Louis Vuitton” off his seventh mixtape Soul Tape 2, which was released in 2012. The song addressed materialistic gold diggers stating, “All she ever talk about is Louis, Louis, all she ever talk about is Louis Vuitton and nigga, I can’t fuck with her no more.” J. Cole sampled Marvin Gaye’s “Poor Abbey Walsh” to make this head-bobbing beat.

Wale – “Bad Girls Club”

J. Cole was featured on and also produced Wale’s “Bad Girls Club.” The upbeat track was a leftover track for Wale’s 2011 second studio album Ambition. Even though the track wasn’t featured on the project, it still serves as a dope collabo.

DJ Khaled f. J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T. & Kendrick Lamar – “They Ready”

Cole co produced DJ Khaled’s “They Ready alongside Canei Finch. The song featured J. Cole himself, plusBig K.R.I.T. and Kendrick Lamar. Track appeared on DJ Khaled’s sixth studio album Kiss The Ring. Cole continues the sampling using Carl Perkins’ “Blue Suede Shoes” for this track.

Talib Kweli f. Marsha Ambrosius – “It Only Gets Better”

Last but not least we visit J. Cole’s productions on Talib Kweli’s “It Only Gets Better.” The song featured the talented Marsha Ambrosius and appeared on Talib’s 2013 album Prisoners of Conscious.

Kweli spoke with VIBE saying, “It was actually J. Cole’s idea to get her on the track. I was chopping it up with Cole about finding a way to get him on my album and instead of him rapping, it ended up being a beat. The hook that Marsha’s singing, J. Cole came up with that. If you listen carefully, you can hear him in the background. We were talking about getting a female voice and he was like, ‘Let’s go with Marsha’.”

Now that we’ve revisited some tracks that J. Cole has produced, who would you like to see him collab with?
