On his track "The Ringer," he references his blistering BET Hip-Hop Awards freestyle diss at POTUS, and raps, "But if I could go back I'd at least reword it / And say I empathize with the people this evil serpent / Sold the dream to that he's deserted / But I think it's workin' / These verses are makin' him a wee bit nervous / And he's too scurred to answer me with words / 'Cause he knows that he will lyrically get murdered / But I know at least he's heard it / 'Cause Agent Orange just sent the Secret Service / To meet in person to see if I really think of hurtin' him / Or ask if I'm linked to terrorists / I said, 'Only when it comes to ink and lyricists.'”
And in honor of what would have been Michael Jackson's 60th birthday earlier this week, Mark Ronson released "Diamonds Are Invincible," a stellar mashup of the King of Pop's hits "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," "Billie Jean," "Smooth Criminal," "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "Human Nature."
"It was such an amazing, awe-inspiring and insanely intimidating task to put this together, although you'd need hours and hours to fit all of Michael's classic tunes into one track," Ronson said of the track. “I wanted this to feel like being on the dance floor at a sweaty, wild NYC club getting down to as much MJ as possible in five minutes."
On the country side of things, Carrie Underwood released new single "Love Wins," while Black Eyed Peas continue their Fergie-less comeback with a music video for "Constant Part 1 and 2" and The Game teamed up with YG, Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih for new track "DTF."
