KiD CuDi - Mr. Rager

This track actually leaked a couple months back, back when a couple CuDi songs were hitting the nets a bit early but this is the final version of the title track from Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager. We must have to say, this might be one of the more anticipated albums we’re looking forward to int he 4th quarter. Especially if it’s on that psychedelic shit like he said it would be. We’re just wondering what combination of drugs would best enhance the listening experience in the paint.

You can pre-order the album on iTunes tomorrow & receive a bonus track on the day of release.

Unreleased Prince albums finally RELEASED! pt.1

It's common knowledge that Prince has unreleased albums and recordings out the ying. Most of the complete albums don't circulate but, every once in a while, we get lucky. Then again, sometimes we get enough information that the finished product can be accurately approximated. Either way, while a lot of people may look at such things as mere re-orderings of existing tracks, these albums are of great importance to fans in the Prince community. Sometimes, regardless of the availability of the recordings, a different track ordering is enough to make a world of difference.

The first of the unreleased albums I'm featuring today is Dream Factory, the last album completed with The Revolution. By looking at the track list alone you would probably assume this is an early version of Sign 'O' The Times, which is kind of accurate, but with Prince it's never that simple.

Kanye West “Saturday Night Live” Performances

Kanye took it to the stage to perform “Power” and “Runaway” – both singles from his upcoming yet-untitled album. When it came to that second verse on “Power” though, he completely switched it up and gave us a new verse, seeing as how the original was a bit offensive towards the SNL cast, staff and their crew. Our only regret are the lack of Kanye on SNL skits.

Christian Rich – Say My Name (feat. Colin Munroe)

Chicago's own "Christian Rich" is back with a nice tune with Colin Munroe. While some may say that it is difficult to classify their sound, we at The Shrine prefer to call it good music. Very catchy hook on this tune!
