First off, I just want to apologize for the lack of posting these last couple weeks. Sometimes there are only so many hours in a day and you have to prioritize. I have a few things on the go currently, just haven’t found the time to complete them. However, assuming i’m in the country, I dare not miss a Blues & Beats. So this week we have some new singles from Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, both of which have new projects that hit shelves today. Game’s new found grind is improving with every new track he drops. Kanye West decides to drop a handful of bars on RiRi’s “Diamonds,” and this remix has a blinding sparkle. Alt-J’s latest track found a place on the Silver Linings Playbook soundtrack. Also in the mix; a couple K.Dot remixes, some fresh sounds from Ra Ra Riot, The-Dream, Wale and more.
