Latest Def Jam signee Dave East debuts with Paranoia: A True Story

Dave East officially makes his Def Jam debut by dropping a new project Paranoia: A True Story. The East Harlem Muslim rapper first introduced us to his Def Jam record with a Chris Brown collab, "Perfect."

Along with other artists featured on the album, one worth mentioning is Nas, although he does not spit a verse, he does do the intro and outro for "Hated." Unfortunately Prodigy (RIP, gone too soon) would've been the perfect fit on Alchemist sounding "Hated" track.

East also unleashed visuals for "Dirty Little Secret" also from the new project, where East encounters a forbidden love interest at a Chinese restaurant. Watch below...

Masked Super Villain DOOM returns with The Missing Notebook Rhymes 

Rihanna wasn't the only one breaking the internet this week... DOOM did so as well! 

Adult Swim brings back DOOM in the realm with a new 15 tracks deep project, The Missing Notebook Rhymes. However, don't expect all the tracks at once, be patient... Fifteen weeks, fifteen new tracks.

Simply said... it's a pleasant brass knuckle surprise to our faces with the week one track "Negus" featuring none other than Sean Price for the gully lyricism that he always provides.

Welcome back DOOM!
