here’s your free pass to get ignant this summer. an easter miracle, even.
and for bonus thugga, hit the jump for a listen at his new single, “eww.”
the boondocks have always done a great, seamless job of blending in classic anime with hip-hop culture. sure enough, we’re getting a dj drama and don cannon led mixtape for the final season. stream and download it below.
XV keeps the new tunes rolling throughout march madness with eight more cuts from his vaults and recent studio sessions.
nothing more to be said here, folks. it’s de la soul rapping over archived j dilla beats. unfortunately, if you are not about that torrent life, well, get over to your nearest leak forum to download this. for the smart ones, a bit torrent link/blog below.
de la soul – smell the d.a.i.s.y. (produced by j dilla)
kevin gates is following up last year’s mixtape, stranger than fiction (which did really well for him, by the way) with a new one, by any means. check below for the stream/download:
EDIT: hit the jump for his “arm and hammer” video.
vince staples caught my attention a few months ago, when i discovered this sequel’s predecessor. now, we get a full, 10-song affair – mostly produced by no i.d., which is great news.
stream at the soundcloud and download it here.

doughbeezy is one of the better hip-hop solo artists that comes from the houston area. over the past few years, he’s managed to get on the bill for some high profile shows, making plenty of fans in the process. a lot of great features from houston’s finest on here, as well. listen and download below.

part one of this series was released a couple weeks ago. that was a 44 track collection of some of blu’s guest verses, b-sides, etc. and now we have a part two – which holds another 33 tracks. stream below and buy for $10 via bandcamp.
oh and “love line” is on here – arguably my favorite blu contribution to music, period.
last night, for j. cole’s 29th birthday – he decided to drop off a new mixtape with some new verses from himself and the rest of his dreamville records crew. not only that, but he announced a partnership with interscope records for dreamville, as well as an album release date for Bas’ new album, last winter — march 6th.
after a few loose leaks here and there, jett i. masstyr (aka hashbrown’s producing alter-ego) lets go of his brand new two-dozen long beat tape, dagobah. chris rockaway handled mixing and mastering, but the rest is all hash. stream below via bandcamp, and download individual tracks at his soundcloud page.
hit the jump for the background story behind dagobah, from hash himself.
while out on tour in brazil, mayer hawthorne reverted back to his DJ HAIRCUT days and went crate digging, and in his search, sought out a new mix for everyone to enjoy in the waning days of 2013, in the wake of the holidays.
A quick mix I put together featuring some of the incredible vinyl records I brought home from my recent trip to Brazil. Brazilian vinyl is frequently beat up and scratched so if the record skip, don’t trip.
the chiraq boys continue their relevancy run with another release from king louie. surprisingly, there is only one feature on this mixtape, as louie seems to be wanting to carve his own lane and showcase his own talents on these 11 tracks. download via datpiff below.
