One of my favorites from Blu's NoYork!, I am really enjoying this album, be sure to get it when it drops later this year (legally) I know I will. Top 5 releases this year to me.

Curren$y - Smoke Sum'n (remix) ft Lil Wayne

Download: Smoke Sum'n

For the first time in years, Curren$y and Lil Wayne collaborate on a track and what could be better than going in over some classic OutKast. Can't tell you how excited I am to see these two working together again after all these years. Spitta let this go via his Twitter, with a little story behind it apparently he bumped into to Wayne in Chicago and they talked about old times, Curren$y told Wayne he was doing a mixtape soon and well here it is.

Lil Wayne - It's Good ft Jadakiss & Drake

Download: It's Good

Here's the track where Weezy responds to Jay-Z's "you got baby money" diss, and I won't go into Wayne's "diss" just know that this so-called beef doesn't need to even happen. It was cool back when it first happened with the whole "Best Rapper Alive since the best rapper retired" but now? Ehhhh.

Phonte - Not Here Anymore ft eLZhi

Download: Not Here Anymore

Phonte and eLZhi link up for this smooth cut, spotted at OnSmash. Got that classic feel and sound to it.

Spitta over some classic OutKast, what else do you need?

Make sure you download Verde Terrace, which is out now.

Kendrick Lamar - A.D.H.D. (Video)

My favorite joint from Section.80 gets visuals, dope shit.

Here is some words from the director Va$htie about the video "Inspired by 'A.D.H.D.'s dark beat and melancholy lyrics which explore a generation in conflict, we find Kendrick Lamar in a video that illustrates the songs universal and age-old theme of apathetic youth."

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Game - Martians vs Goblins ft Tyler, The Creator & Lil Wayne

                                                                            Finally a Game album cover without tires or his kids.

Download: Martians vs Goblins

This song isn't as good as I thought it would be, I would've preferred an Wayne verse instead of him just doing the small part on the chorus, other than that it's a decent track. Game and Tyler do the "diss" various celebrities thing that they're know for.

Sidenote: Is it just me or does Tyler use the same flow from the Pusha T song? I like his verse but gotta switch it up on the big feature tracks, to impress others.

Sir Michael Rocks - Cell Dope

Lil Wayne - She Will ft Drake

The next single from Tha Carter IV dropped today at noon, featuring fellow Young Money crew member Drake. While it's a nice track, I do actually like this song, it is definitely what you would expect from the title. I feel as if I have heard this song before, just under a different name. That being said check it out, in the mean while Tha Carter IV drops August 29th.

Update: The supposedly original version featuring Ross was "leaked" today by DJ Scream, but my guess is it will now be a remix. Here it is.

2 Chainz - Pimp C Back

Lil B - R.I.P. The Rap Game

Lil B over some classic Freeway? Doooope! This seriously may be the best I've ever heard Lil B spit, I've always supported him wither it be his Based music or his more serious side. Although I do enjoy "this" Lil B more. This is something to get the non-believers, believing.

Download: R.I.P. The Rap Game

Wolf Gang members Mike G and Hodgy Beats, released this track via G's Twitter. As stated by Mike G himself "I wanted to be the first other rapper heard over one of Hodgy's beats. I win.

Anyway it's new material, a little something to hold over fans til G's Award Tour EP and GOLD drop.
