this was a pleasant surprise i found in my inbox. i don’t have much information on him other than the fact that he’s 21, from washington and has been experimenting with production for a few years. the glitchy woozy nature of these beats sends me flying into a flying lotus circa cosmogramma era. listen to it and download it below. check out some of his other tracks too.
i won’t be listening to this shit, but there’s a song with chance the rapper on it.

and after the initial delays, joey badass’ mixtape is finally here. download it now via livemixtapes.
dustin cavazos never stops working. the lack of sleep this guy gets is astounding, but only for a second, because you realize the man’s probably in the studio working on a project idea that he came up with during a similar late night. until the summer ends is a collection of both old and new goodies, but anchored by that ‘burning the midnight oil’ work ethic that was evident on “3:44 a.m.” and thankfully, his hardwork is for all of our benefit, cause you can download the mixtape for $free.99.
i gained a lot of respect for asher roth today, mainly due to this open letter he posted on XXL today. after having some mild success from his first album, asher saw a real bumpy road, and opens up about his struggle as a rapper on a major label who didn’t necessarily want him there.
but anyway, moving on to more uplifting shit is his new mixtape, the greenhouse effect vol. II. 5 years after the original, but 22 tracks, some solid features and a posi attitude will go a long way surely.
fresh off of a house arrest, gunplay has a new mixtape for everyone to enjoy in acquitted. hop below to download the tape, which does indeed have that heater, “bible on the dash.”
brooklyn’s exquire has a brand new mixtape for us today in kismet. download it below, and hit the jump to see the actual artwork, which is NSFW.
