Homeboy Sandman ft. PackFM "Bonkers" [clean | dirty]: Damn. Two DOPE artists link up for a track that does exactly what it says on the tin. Pack's I Fucking Hate Rappers drops on May 25th, and Sandman's The Good Sun is out on the 1st of June. This shit ain't on the album!
Shouts to MAC Media.
M-Dot "No Money Down" (prod. by Pauly Fingerz): Here's a single from A Boston State Of Mind v.2, which drops on May 4th via iTunes and UGHH. The album also features J the S and The Camp; the CD release party is on the 6th of May as well - hit the flier above for more information.
Jackson Jones "Love Dreams": Yes, Deal - The Villain's Madlib opus, Jackson Jones, was scheduled to drop today, but due to some fine-tuning, this one will be delayed at least a week. Patience is a virtue, and trust, I heard a number of the tracks Saturday night, and it's sounding ILL!
Mike Schpitz "Mike Is Like": Here's the first leak from @MikeSchpitz' Mike Murder project, which is being presented by DJ Booth, Baller Status, YNotMyDream and Refined Hype alongside my PMG crew. Schpitz coasts over the classic "Nas Is Like" instrumental; if you feel this, be on the lookout for two more leaks before the mixtape. Bong!
- L.E.G.A.C.Y. "Answers" (prod. by 9th Wonder, cuts by DJ MC): Here's a cut circa 2002 with Leg asking you a number of intriguing questions, some rhetorical. Why do you sleep on sick lyricists?
- L.E.G.A.C.Y. "E True Story" (prod. by Khrysis): This was written in Smithville, NC... in the Johnston County jail. Not sure if being locked down made Leg ponder shit and really put it to pad, but he opens up and breaks down his side of the story on a number of topics. Circa 2003.
With last night's premiere episode of The Boondocks' third and final season, this unofficial official mixtape dropped via HighOfLife.com and BoondocksBootleg.com... and it's ill. This is hosted by Asheru, David Banner, and Mike Bigga, and features a number of sick tracks, including cuts from RTD friends like L.E.G.A.C.Y., Nico The Beast & Pugs Atomz, and it even features The Lessondary's "Show Up Drunk"! Hit the jump for the full tracklist and download link.
Taken from their As The World Turns album; great look for Curly Castro!
This tape dropped on the weekend of the premiere of The Boondocks, Season 3 - smart play, Dreez. Ohio's own has been putting in work, honing his craft, and is letting that experience with his SRS clique do the talkin' on projects like this. I'm always a champion of taking risks and listening to new artists, so do yourself a flavor and check this man out.

Motzy, P-Dot & Pop "Bring It Back": It's #PhillyDay on @MTVJams, and here's a likkle North Philly flavor for you. Synths in the beat makes it sound like some futuristic hype, and Da N Crowd don't fuck around on the mic. Very bouncy track, shit to have cats going dumb.
Here's an ill fan-made video full of stop-motion madness:
Big up to sda.
Here's an eclectic mixtape from Virginia's @Vainsmith. She's in the pocket whether she's rocking over Trae's "Inkredible" or Wale's "Pretty Girls", but she also touches tracks from B.o.B., Lil' Wayne and more. Interesting mix, and her voice fits well over the varying soundscapes.
DOWNLOAD Vainsmith Open Invitation Mixtape
Britney Spears "Telephone": Random Sunday night demo. Apparently Lady Gaga wrote "Telephone" for Brit, and the demo of Brit singing it leaked. Not bad - chorus of Britneys around. If you don't like the Gaga version, you won't really fuck with this one.
On a random note, I was watching Family Feud the other night and they had a "What has Britney Spears lost" question; the one dude tried to be funny and say "her virginity", as if the two kids didn't tip us off to that.
Legit ft. BlackSmith & Yung Shaun "I Push On": I just got introduced (and introduced you) to Legit on Friday, and got a bit from his forthcoming mixtape, The Graduation Tape, which he is saying will drop on May 21st or so. This one is a bit harder than what I had first heard, with a sick guitar driving the words. Dude sounds wise beyond his years, and is really captivating me. I'm hoping you're not sleeping on dude... he's finna be a PROBLEM!
This "Gangsta Grillz Invasion" (i.e. it's presented by DJ Green Lantern and DJ Drama) was supposed to drop at like Noon on the 1st of May... then it was to drop around 11PM. I guess niggas got a bit too enamored w/ the fight and whatever they were smokin' or drankin' on, as it was delayed last night, and dropped this afternoon. I have a feeling Jadakiss fans will NOT be disappointed. Hit the jump.
Twitter's been going ham about this fight... and while many wish it was Mayweather/Pacquiao, we have to sekkle for Mayweather/Mosley. I hope you got your 24/7 on; hit the jump for the streams. I'll be updating and finding alternates all night, trust.
Drake "Find Your Love (Instrumental)": The atrocious 808's & Heartbreak Drake "Find Your Love" dropped the other day, and now the instrumental is here for you niggas to eschew sweet nothings about trying to get her back. If you make a remix, hit me with it and I'll post it here.
Shouts to EKEK.
Jay Electronica ft. Diddy "The Ghost of Christopher Wallace (radio rip)": WOW. @EnigmatikBGDB had been telling me that @JayElectronica was planning on premiering something today. I wanted to get hyped, but I've always been skeptical of Jay, and with YN's last editorial about Jay still resonating in my psyche, I wasn't bugging out. Well, it looks like Rap Radar got to premiere this BANGER, which features something I didn't realize I missed - Diddy-libs! Very ill beat, very dope rhymes. From what YN says, though, it's unfinished, so we'll see how it is in its final incarnation. I can ride to this, though. Thanks, Elliott!
EDIT You can download the untagged version [big up BGDB], and be sure to check out Angela Yee's discussion with Jay Electronica.
EDIT Here's the re-mixed version, via @IAmDiddy. Bad Boy Records?
EDIT Here's the dirty radio edit (I.E. 3:12 minutes), via HHNM.
Psalm One "It's Worth It": Here's an ill cut from the 1st Lady of Rhymesayers, @PsalmOne. I randomly got the CD for Woman @ Work and was intrigued. I've been digging Eternia's word, and of course Jean Grae and my homegirl Dominique Larue are killin' it - good to see female MCs getting theirs without having to shake their ass - or show their ass! Mulatto Patriot handled beats for this project alongside Earmint and Ethan Stoller, and it's very light on features, so if you're asking "where's the ill females on the mic?", here's one you need to get to know!
K.Sparks & Frank Ramz "Good Mornin'" (prod. by Numonics): I guess ambition pays off: REUPSpot's Vick wanted to get Sparks & Ramz on a track together, and finally made it happen, with Numonics on the boards. I need some of my thoughts and wishes to formulate into real mediums like this.
Bonus Beats K.Sparks & Frank Ramz "Good Mornin' (Remix)"
Sene "TellMeBoutIt" (prod. by Thoughts For Food): Here's a cut Sene made that did not make it onto the recently-released Reality Bites; the homey @_J57 told me that this was made "during a two month period of sobriety upon Sene's return to Brooklyn, before inevitably falling back into a box of swishers". Speaks about how life's changed now that cats is older and gotta pay rent on their own. It's crazy - sounds like a conversation I'd have with some of my high school friends over a beer... or in a dutch session.
Here's a pretty dope mixtape of instrumentals from LA beatmaker @addifi. I like having shit play when I'm at work, or when I'm working on pieces, and beat tapes like this are so essential. Pretty short - under 19 minutes - but you can hear the quality in homey's beats.
Legit "Sociology": Here's a fresh cut from an inquisitive 18 year old from Chitown. I wish more cats in my hood would sound so intelligent about their hood using Hip-Hop. You know, you get e-mails from loads of artists, giving their accolades, and I try to ignore that and give my own opinion. I'll say this - I wanna hear more from this cat. He's ill. Smart motherfucker, talented individual. Need about 3 or 4 more of him, try and change this scene.
