Not sure if he gave this away because of new of the revival of Benga Beats or what, but I saw this touched down on UK radio over the last week or so, and I'm surprised this one got the free upload treatment. The video for the original touched down not too long ago, but I imagine sets worldwide will be capped off with this one. Infectious.

This is exactly what I wish for when Nas and Rick Ross link up. I have a thing about organs, so these "rich nigga memoirs" sound like ghetto gospel over this track. Nas of course injects a bit more prophecy into his bars, but Ross doesn't totally falter. I'm assuming this one is taken from Life Is Good, which is due out July 17th. I also love how Nas discovered SoundCloud and uploads errthing for freeski. Third verse FTW. Feels like Nas is describing the horror stories from the young niggas 'round my way. EDIT I see that you can pre-order a Life Is Good bundle + box set, which features a special limited edition & numbered notebook personalized by Nas with exclusive photos and selected art, a deluxe CD and an exclusive Life Is Good t-shirt. Word is 500 randomly selected notebooks will be signed by Nas. Boi-1da has the full tracklist up.

It never stops. Another episode in the can, and this one featured a dope interview with Artie Lang, who you probably remember most from Howard Stern. He goes in on his own trials (and tribulations), his comeback and even drops a B.I.G. impression (which you can see after the jump). Crazy. #GetReadyForCombat
After a wild grip of love that his work has been getting, including being dropped on Shade45 by DJ Wonder three times (so far) AND getting a great look via NPR, The Jeffree's has dropped ƱZ's Trap Shit 6/9 for free. Dude's gotten a fuckload of love form a bunch of DJs, but the first cat to put me onto him was Nappy. In any case, in a wild scene where so many clones and upstarts are trying to make Trap beats, ƱZ is about the most original ones of the bunch. If you don't believe, or even know the burgeoning Trap scene, I'd say head on over to ƱZ's SoundCloud, or properly take this release in.

Definitely wanna see these guys win. Not into anything Cee-Lo did on this track.

To celebrate the release of his Minimalized LP, Heavy1's having an album release party at Loop Shibuya in Tokyo on June 30th alongside, Makoto, Velocity, Key, Lowply and more. He cooked up this dope mix, featuring his own music alongside a grip others, with many forms of EDM touching before the DnB goes down. You need this.
Ahead of the June 25th digital release of Rhymageddon's "The Once Over" on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc., he has the unedited version up on Bandcamp for $1.This jawn is produced by Kayo Black and the Spit Sargeant wastes no time in evaluating things in life over this tough beat. Something for you grown men to relate and marinate to, trust. Grab it now so when your friend thinks they're the shit for copping it next week, you'll already know. #AntiIndustry
Hopefully you true believers didn't sleep on the 10-90 EP that The Accomplices dropped recently. Jake and Broad are two fine producers and deserve any and all praise that comes their way. This particular cut with J.Gunn was featured on the premium version of the EP, which you truly should already own. Just give it a listen. If it sucks, throw shade. You can't do that, can you? Pure summer flavor here. Crack a big dutch to this and roll up something super stinky.
I'm not up on Tyquan Sounds, but I fucks with Dom O. On a day as motherfucking hot and oppresive as today? This is the kind of shit you wanna rock to, sitting under a fan, sipping on something cold. Preferably some of that good Heineken or a chilled red wine. Fuck you taumbout. This is fly doe, lazy summer shit. Stay cool, and wait for Tyquan's BCAS:DIPHFERENT, which drops in August.

Concord Dawn is one of those DnB outfits that's quality all around, regardless of what the actual vibe of the track is. Some of my fondest DnB memories were rinsing new Concord Dawn tracks to myself, and in the company of friends. Seriously. I was kind of surprised to hear that he was dropping Air Chrysalis for free on June 25th, but I got a lil advanced copy and there was nothing left out - these tracks are just as quality, and a true testament to the 15 years CD has spent making quality DnB. I like how my interview with Matt came out; check it out and let me know what you think!
@Dallas_Penn does this for The Internets.

On a day like this, Jungle is the sound you need. S.P.Y is one of the crop of talented producers taking the DnB scene to the next level, but he's also a VERY capable DJ. He gave away this slick Jungle Mixtape, touching down on some classics. No tracklist, but you should know these. Hit the comments if any of these sound foreign to your ears.
Dope episode from this past Sunday. Phil kicked things off with a lil tribute to Father's Day, and drops a host of classic, current and exclusive material. I learned today that Phil vibes off that ratchet music - me and him might need to take a ride to some 2 Chainz or something. The Side Beatz bit in here in legendary. Divine kills it every time. Don't sleep!
