Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color finds Brother Ali reborn and rejuvenated. On his fourth full length studio album, Ali teams up with seasoned producer Jake One (50 Cent, De La Soul, T.I., Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa) to tell a very different American story.

Fully recharged and inspired by his eye-opening first trip to Mecca, the 2011 uprisings in the Middle East, and the worldwide Occupy movements, Brother Ali is prepared to unveil Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color. Created during a prolific, self-imposed two-month exile in Seattle and helped by platinum-selling producer Jake One, the album represents a brave new phase in Brother Ali’s remarkable career trajectory. Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color presents a scathing, yet honest, critique of America and its many flaws while simultaneously presenting a hopeful outlook of its possibilities.

Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color, in all its sonic and lyrical glory, promises to be both the voice of a burgeoning new critical American consciousness as well as the beacon of hope for those that hold fast to its ideals and potential. This is Brother Ali as you’ve never heard him before.

2000 single Californication found the Red Hot Chili Peppers peeling back the glossy exterior Los Angeles projects to the rest of the world to reveal the seamy reality underneath. On David Banner‘s new single of the same name, the Mississippi rapper-producer tries a similar trick with a different emphasis, showing how hazardous the City of Angels can be for unwary tourists (especially those with the wrong complexion). Banner collaborates with THX behind the boards, crafting a slow-rolling street instrumental to back him as he chronicles how a visit to his Uncle Trayvon (played by Snoop Dogg—and no, I have no idea whether the reference to current events was intended), went horribly wrong. Game, Nipsey Hussle and Ras Kass also guest, playing the various characters the headliner encounters during his tumultuous first 24 hours in town, and Kree ties the package together with a reedy, falsetto-laced chorus. Feeling it? Californication is just one of many dope—and diverse, judging by the leaks thus far—cuts to be found on Banner’s Sex, Drugs & Video Games LP, scheduled to hit the ‘net May 22, for free download.http://www.djbooth.net/index/tracks/review/david-banner-californication/

This record will be on Tha Dogg Pound upcoming album ”Alumni” as well as the “D.P.G.C’OLOGY” mixtape.

While Drake has been out in the Bay Area shooting the video for his Take Care single “The Motto,” DJ E-Man of Big Boy’s Neighborhood let loose this remix featuring Snoop, YG, and Nipsey. The club banger gets a verse from each emcee, as Drake continues to accommodate on the hook. Now let’s see just how many folks continue to hop on this track.

Snoop Dogg talks his latest project, as well as his daughter’s burgeoning singing career.

While Snoop Dogg was honored at the BMI Urban Awards, the West Coast veteran had an opportunity to speak on a bevy of subjects, including his upcoming movie with Wiz Khalifa, High School.

“The movie’s done,” said Snoop in an interview with Rap-Up.com. “We’re just editing now, and the soundtrack will be out for a couple of months, so be on the lookout for that maybe January or February.”

High School will be a stoner comedy film, in a similar vein as How High and Up In Smoke.

Snoop also had a chance to speak on his daughter Cori B., who is starting her own music career. “That’s when I’ma retire, when my baby girl get her foot all the way in the game,” explained the excited father.

Watch the interview below:

Just when we thought Charlie Sheen Mania was over leave it to Snoop Dogg to bring about the Sheen revival. While I’m sure Snoop’s “Winning” song won’t revive anything even related to Charlie Sheen’s failing career he still should have released this track a few weeks ago. People aren’t saying “winning” anymore, no one cares about tigers blood, and I think it’s safe to say that no human being is made of Adonis DNA but please correct me if I’m wrong.

And speaking of tigers blood I think I was done with this track as soon as I heard the tiger growl in the intro. That was just awful. Since when are we letting animals do ad-libs? I tried to give this song a second listen and only got about halfway. It’s just that awful. It was a song created for a certain moment and now that no one seems to care about Sheen “Winning” is really just awkward more than anything. But if Snoop were to ever bring back his comedy series “Doggy Fizzle Televizzle” (which we doubt) the song would make for a great comedy sketch.
