-Hip-hop fans can officially relax now that Rick Ross and company have released the Kanye West collabo track from Teflon Don titled "Live Fast, Die Young". The track features Kanye on the second verse as well as on the production side.
Recorded in Hawaii not too long ago, the song finds itself sounding like vintage Kanye -- so much so that it definitely brought out the best in Ross. The photo of Ross and 'Ye working on the song is above, but you can check out the making-of-video here and the actual song here. [The305]

-The star-studded premiere of DJ Khaled's video for "All I Do Is Win (Remix)," went down this past weekend on MTV, coincidentally around the same time that Khaled and friends were walking towards the red carpet at the BET Awards. Either way, the video is colorful and vibrant, with a recurring sports victory theme to it.
The list of verses is lengthy as Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Diddy, Nicki Minaj, Fabolous, Jadakiss, Fat Joe, Swizz Beatz and T-Pain all put in their time in the video, which was directed by Miami native Gil Green. [OnSmash]
