You might’ve already heard tracks like “Find Your Love” or the radio hit “Over”, but until you hear the entire album, you won’t have a clue of what Thank Me Later is truly made of. This debut album by rapper-singer-actor and Toronto native Drake is by far one of the most solid hip hop albums this year. Mixed with kind flows (“July”), hard-hitting verses (“Light Up”), radio-hits (“Over”), and straight up hip hop tunes (“Thank Me Now”), the album is both dynamic and fun. Thank Me Later is set to release in stores this Tuesday, June 15th, but you can easily find the entire album leaked across the internet. The singles, “Over”, “Find Your Love”, “Miss Me”, are available now on iTunes. If you’re interested in hearing the entire album, simply google thank me later leak. Also check out some of our previous posts on songs that leaked earlier in the month off of Thank Me Later, each with download links. Below you’ll find the track list, album artwork, and one of our favorite tracks off of Thank Me Later, titled “Thank Me Now”. Enjoy!

If any of you are familiar with the past two installments of Rock Band, you’ll know that it’s a music video game that uses a guitar (or two), a mic, and a drum set. Pretty simple, right? Now, with Rock Band 3, you will have the option to add a keyboard to your heavy metal, hard rockin’ band. We’ve always wondered how a keyboard video game would look, and here it is. The keyboard (shown above) can be used while sitting down or you can strap it on for some key-tar action. The keyboard itself is in fact a fully functional, 25-key, MIDI Keyboard. Too bad we have to wait till later this year to get some action on this thing…

Here are two interesting, funny, and completely weird YouTube videos that we were watching over here at Sweet Kicks the other day. The first video is of some people testing out Microsoft’s upcoming addition to the Xbox 360, called “Project Natal”. “Project Natal” is basically a controller-free gaming experience that lets you interact with the games you play. If you thought playing fun games on your Wii looked weird, wait till you see this…

With all the hype building up over Eminem’s latest album, Recovery, a pre-release leak was bound to occur sometime…and here it is. Let me just say this: Eminem, the wait was long, but definitely worth it. Off of Recovery, here are two new banging tracks, titled “No Love” and “Love The Way You Lie”, featuring two popular hip hop stars. While Emimen has made an effort to introduce popular artists into his music, like Rihanna and Lil Wayne, it doesn’t mean his music has gone haywire. Expect some old school Eminem-style verses with a little extra magic. Download below, courtesy of Buckmarleyxxx and Hip Hop Early, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
