UPDATE: Bush can now be streamed in full here on iTunes Radio.
The two biggest features are below including “I’m Ya Dogg” featuring Kendrick Lamar & Rick Ross and “California Roll” featuring Stevie Wonder (on harmonica) & Pharrell (on the hook). Good vibes like much of the rest of the album already. Press play and cop the album May 12th.
1. “California Roll” feat. Stevie Wonder
2. “This City”
3. “R U a Freak”
5. “So Many Pros”
6. “Peaches N Cream” feat. Charlie Wilson

10. “I’m Ya Dogg” feat. Kendrick Lamar and Rick Ross
Charlie Wilson & Snoop Dogg brought the funk to the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage last night as they performed “Infectious” off Charlie Wilson’s new album, Forever Charlie. Unfortunately no “Peaches N Cream”, though that could have very likely been the extra jam for the audience (I checked, this is the only video.) Watch above ICYMI.
The Pharrell produced new single off Bush, ICYMI, now above with a futuristic, far out video. The funk is now officially OC.
Charlie Wilson performed on Jimmy Fallon the night before last and did “Touched By An Angel” with some help from The Roots. Charlie always kills it live so watch above ICYMI.
Last night, Kanye West, accompanied by his wife Kim Kardashian, was in Washington D.C. for the taping of the 2015 BET Honors show. He was receiving the ‘Visionary Award’ and details have leaked about ‘Ye’s speech…
Namely, that Dame Dash introduced him and even acknowledged that there’s still some beef between the two. The quotables are below, which even include Yeezy talkin’ about creativity and Kim. Apparently, ‘Ye also briefly freestyled with Charlie Wilson. We’ll see it all unfold on February 29th when the BET Honors Awards is broadcast.
ICYMI: Rihanna, Kanye West, & Paul McCartney “FourFiveSeconds”
I have a feeling this is what the fans want, Snoop.
News via Billboard today on one of Reddit’s new investors’ upcoming rap album…
1. It’ll be entirely produced by Pharrell. That’s beautiful.
2. The album will be released on Pharrell’s i am Other imprint. That’s interesting.
3. Charlie Wilson and Stevie Wonder (!) to guest star. That’s sweet, guys.
I enjoy all those ingredients with the Snoop base, this should yield another hit or 2. And then we can start talking about the music again after this week’s headline-raising, ultimately insignificant squashed beef with Iggy Azalea.
Me and Uncle Charles!…#TY…Wooh! @imcharliewilson
Via Lupe’s IG, the #TY indicates that this is a studio session for Tetsuo & Youth. Wow, would this be a great collab or what? I can’t get Charlie‘s performance in “Bound 2” out of my head and when you mix that with the caliber of what Lupe can do… “Wooh!” indeed. Hopefully this is indeed the case…
UPDATE: It is. Charlie Wilson tweeted out this pic below too. Exciting!
