“Sydney Vs Everybody” Part 2 Debuts


It’s Australia’s most populous city so of course the talent for “Sydney Vs Everybody” just keeps coming.

Pushing the movement forward to instill pride in local rap fans, the second line-up of artists has arrived. Keeping in theme with the collective vision to represent our multicultural metropolis, this new group of MCs is beautifully diverse in background, religion, gender and sound.

Scratching parts in from the original track to Big Noize‘s impacting production (I see you, DJ MK-1 — so happy you’re a part of this, especially after your Facebook post on the project) the fiery remix features Billy Green, Gravy Baby (my personal favorite due to his subject matter hitting home, painting pictures of my teenage years) L-Fresh The Lion, Gunsta, Double-L, Sarah Connor and Nter.

Visit SydneyVsEverybody.com.au for a full rundown on the project.

Beyoncé Releasing “Platinum” Edition Of Self-Titled Album For The Holidays


Beyoncé‘s phenomenal self-titled album is the gift that keeps on giving.

Due Monday, November 24th, the Platinum Edition Box Set adds an extra disc of new music plus another DVD of live performances from her recent Mrs. Carter Show World Tour to the “visual album” B dropped last year.

According to RollingStone.com:

Platinum Edition Box Set will features two new Beyoncé tracks, “7/11” and “Ring Off,” as well as four new remixes, including the previously released “Flawless” remix with Nicki Minaj. Beyoncé‘s “Blow” will get the Pharrell Williams treatment, the pre-Beyoncé single “Standing On The Sun” will be remixed by Mr. Vegas and the long-rumored “Drunk In Love” featuring both Jay Z and Kanye West will also be included on Platinum.

The Platinum Edition‘s four discs also come with Beyoncé’s 2015 mini-calendar. Fans who digitally purchased Beyoncé when it arrived in December 2013 will have the option of buying only the new material.
