New Music Thursday: Decemberists, Raekwon, Lil Wayne & more!

Despite the inclusion of new Fleet Foxes and a Decemberists performance for Yo Gabba Gabba, We’ve got a more Hip-Hop flavored New Music Thursday this week, as Lil Wayne reps Green Bay Packers in “Green & Yellow," Raekwon & Ghostface go in hard with Kobe & Jim Jones and 50 Cent takes a walk down beef-memory lane. 

 

Raekwon ft. Ghostface Killah, Kobe & Jim Jones – "Rock N Roll" (Prod. by DJ Khalil)

 

 

Raekwon’s Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang is in stores on March 8th. Here’s a taste of what’s coming at ya:

 

Lil Wayne – Green & Yellow Freestyle

 

Weezy turns the theme over to the Green Bay Packers on the latest twist of the most annoying song of the year. 

 

"This ain’t a dis song, but um… I’m a cheesehead, y’all ni**as Cheez Whiz”

 

 

 

Curtis – Old 2003 Ferrari

 

Curtis Jackson put together this collage of old mixtape covers and pictures of his old enemies for a twisted little walk down memory lane. Enjoy!

 

 The Streets – ‘Computers and Blues’ (Full Album)

 

Our friends over at SomeKindofAwesome have the full album stream of The Streets’ new album, Mike Skinner’s final offering after 16 years in the game. Check it out, and see what the world will soon have to live without. 

 

The Kills – "Satellite"

 

The Kills have finally unleashed a new song upon our eager ears, the first single from the duo’s forthcoming album Blood Pressures. Satellite and the rest of the fourth Kills album will see a proper release on April 5th on Domino Records, the result of  Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart’s return to Key Club Studios, Michigan where they reunited with Midnight Boom engineers Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins. Produced by Hince, the album was mixed in London by Tom Elmhirst.

The Decemberists do Yo Gabba Gabba

 

While the Oregonian superstars don’t actually show up in the video, the Decemberists have channeled Burt Bacharach to provide the show with a beautifully animated little track about animals that makes us wish we were kids again. Check it out at Consequence of Sound, because our media player’s not playing nice today. 

 

Fleet Foxes – "Helplessness Blues"

 

This harmoniously gorgeous number is the debut song and title track from Fleet Foxes’ new album, out May 3rd on Sub Pop. The album will feature a dozen new tracks and be supported by an extensive tour between America and Europe. 

 

Dum Dum Girls – "He Gets Me High"

 

He Gets Me High, the new EP from garage-pop queens Dum Dum Girls, arrives March 1 from Sub Pop. Oddly, the band is also currently asking fans to send them pictures of whatever or whoever gets them high. Send your contribution to ddgLUV@gmail.com, and you could see it show up in a tour booklet that they’re putting together.
