The Documentary 2 has been pushed back in definitely but that hasn’t stopped Jayceon from dropping off new singles as he collaborates with Migos after linking with Drake for “100“. There was also a new track with Kendrick Lamar previewed in snippet form over the weekend and hopefully the full version (when it drops) is as good as “The City“.

Besides Kendrick, Jay Rock is my favorite emcee of the TDE crew and the follow up to 2011’s Follow Me Home is long overdue. This new cut was released over the weekend via Spotify and serves as the newest musical offering since “Money Trees Deuce” and “Parental Advisory“.

Wayne’s 4th of July present came in the form of his anticipated Free Weezy Album and preliminary reports seem to be that it is one of the better recent offerings from him. With all the drama between Birdman, Weezy & Cash Money going on, it is important that Wayne continues to put out music for his fans to make sure they remain loyal to him.
The 15 track free project was released originally via TIDAL and is now available to those without a subscription. Features include Euro, Wiz Khalifa, Young Jeezy, Cory Gunz, Junior Reid & more.

Last month, Zhero introduced himself to the world with an eerie confessional followed up by the premiere of “Won’t Die“. Next, we saw some quick visuals accompanied by a voicemail recording – the recording revealing that Zhero had a desire to leave everything behind in hopes of finding a better place for himself.
Today’s premiere works as a follow up to the recent voicemail, offering listeners a deeper glimpse into the mind of Zhero as his inner thoughts play tug-of-war with themselves. Faced with what is best described as cognitive dissonance, the young artist out of South Windsor desires a better place – physically and mentally – but does not want to leave his loved ones. We saw pieces of this in the original confessional, as Zhero expressed his desire to not hurt those he cares about despite wanting to leave everything about the physical world behind him.
“Paradise”, the first release off Zhero’s upcoming Growing Pains project, is interesting in that it has a very upbeat feel to it. The Austin McGrady-produced instrumental meshes well with Zhero’s delivery, but both are juxtaposed strongly in regards to the content of the record. This works perfectly in showcasing the intended meaning behind the track – Zhero longs for his paradise, hence the good vibed nature of the sound, but he’s stuck in a dark place in part because he cares too much to leave his loved ones behind.
As has been the case with all the content released by Zhero thus far, “Paradise” leaves the listener satisfied but wanting more: more answers to the questions still left unanswered and more music, because Zhero is clearly a talented artist. As we wait for future releases from Zhero leading up to his Growing Pains project, we’re left without the answers we desire. In time, I’m certain Zhero and his team will provide those answers but until then, the listener finds themselves stuck in a place somewhat similar to Zhero – confused and desiring more.
In addition to the single, Zhero’s team – perhaps better described as his “handlers” – have launched a new website that allows Zhero’s concerned followers access to his girlfriend’s iPhone. Those who visit the website are able to view pics, videos and more.
We have gained access to a loved one's iPhone. We will be sharing this access with you all shortly.

Although much of Zhero is still masked in mystery, his team has started to slowly strip away some of the layers of ambiguity.
“Paradise”, which has a very Kevin Abstract/mtv1987 feel to it, includes additional vocals by John-Paul. Artwork comes courtesy of David Keaveny.
