Fly.Union - Never Call (Video)

Im not saying I love this song or anything. Im just saying it's my alarm tone. So I listen to it at least every day... But in all fairness, this video is lackluster.

The-Dream Terius Nash - 1977 (Album)

Before The-Dream hit us with a new album later this year, he gives us a special treat for free. And I guess for this album alone he's going by his government name? People make weird decisions sometimes. So who knows. Anyways, Dream always has at least a few joints that are awesome, so check it out...

Marion Write - The Bounce

So today has been a good day for listening to random songs that I stumble across. Here's another guy that Ive never heard of before, but this jam is kind of my new favorite song...

Ess Vee - Backyard Sippin'

Ive seen the name Ess Vee around a couple times, and I finally decided to give him a listen... Not bad. I'm not 100% convinced yet, but It's chill. Enjoy the video above, and/or grab the track below...

Nikkiya - Speakher (Mixtape)

Admittedly, I saw this mixtape a week or two ago, and just passed over it. It wasnt until I recently heard that "Speak-Her-Sex" joint with Yelawolf, that I decided that this was something I needed taking up my hard drive space. Do yourself a favor and join me. The ATL songstress handles all the writing, and all songs are produced by WillPower.

Demrick & Scoop Deville - Neva Look Back (EP)

If I'm being honest, which I am, I've never heard Demrick before in my life. But this joing is getting a post based on the power of Scoop Deville's production alone. This kid is like 21 years old, and makes some of the illest beats Ive ever heard in my life...

Esso ft. Chase Kennedy - Summertime (Video)

Not my favorite Esso track, but still cool...

The ILLZ - Los Angeles (Existen) (Video)

Part 3 from the "Let It Fall" project.

The nightmare has ended, but is replaced by a cold reality that is not much different. A letter proves the pain is in fact real, the separation is definite, that she is now ‘dead and gone’ to him.

Goapele - Play

I am in love with Goapele. That is all.

Oh, and I guess her new album, Break Of Dawn, will be coming out soon. I really hope "Milk & Honey" is on it too.

Wale ft. Jeremih & Rick Ross - That Way (Video)

After 3 videos, my favorite joint from Maybach Music's Self Made Vol. 1 gets the visual treatment too. Wale's Ambition drops 11.1.11

CyHi The Prynce - Jack Of All Trades (Mixtape)

G.O.O.D. Music's best new commodity gets on his JACKING FOR BEATS game. I was going to be super impressed by this because CyHi just put out a mixtape like 2 months ago, but then I realized that most of these joints are just single verses. But still, CyHi is dope, so enjoy this...

Smoke Dza - Personal Party (Ft. Curren$y)

Dza and Spitta link up again. Rolling Stoned out Tomorrow. Eyes Peeled.

86'D - Skyler, The Re-Animator EP (Instrumental)

Damn. This is some heat. Only a three track EP, but it packs a punch. Some well chopped and arranged and layerd cuts riddled with Hat work. Make sure to check it out.

Sims & Lazerbeak - Wildlife (Album)

Big fan of the Doomtree producer Lazerbeak. Not so much of emcee Sims. But I can't front the hard hitting drum programming is really breathing some life into Sims laid back draw. Apparently all of these songs were created around 2009 and 2010....thus they've decided to drop it in EP form....FOR FREE. Check it out.

Mayer Hawthorne - The Walk

Mayer Howthorne drops his second single off of his upcoming How Do You Do album which is due out October 11th.

QN5 Evolution Documentary (Part 1: Past)

The wonderfully creative minds at QN5 have put together this incredible documentary for their Megashow in New York City last week. During the show, they performed classic records from the labels past, bangers from the present, and some brand new material for the future... This is part one of their three part documentary that aired at the beginning of each of the three acts of their show. Parts two and three will be coming this week and I can only imagine that they will be equally amazing.

K. Sparks ft. Tina Quallo - Special

Smooth new joint from K. Sparks and Tina Quallo, off Sparks's upcoming, Diagnosis: Success, dropping September 19th.

Asher Roth - Ampersand

Asher Roth looks like the homeless guy who sits out in front of Whole Foods because even though he doesnt have any food, he's only willing to eat organic...

DOWNLOAD: Asher Roth - Ampersand.mp3

Passion, Josh Lehman & Daniel De Bourg - Trust Issues Remix (Video)

I dont know who these guys are either. I guess they're "youtube famous." But this was pretty smooth, so now you get to watch/listen too. Drake seems to be the go-to guy for inspiration lately though. There's been a million "Marvin's Room" covers, and even Justin Bieber covered "Trust Issues." ...No seriously...

Skillz - Hip Hop Confessions #9 (Video)

Skillz links up with MC Lyte and Salt-N-Pepa for a "Ladies First" edition of his long running Hip Hop Confessions series...

Curren$y ft. Lil Wayne - Smoke Something (Remix)

So, as it turns out, the last time Spitta was in Chicago, Lil Wayne was also in Chicago... They caught up to chill and reminisce on the old days, and discuss new work. Curren$y told Wayne that he was working on Verde Terrace with DJ Drama, and Wayne apparently wanted to be a part of it. Spitta sent Wayne the "Elevators" beat (by Outkast), and then promptly broke his ankle. So while Spitta was doped up on pain medication, Wayne dropped a verse on this joint and sent it back, but Spitta didnt see the emain until after he'd already let go of the mixtape... So here is a bonus joint. I've just labeled it as track 15, and I'm adding it to my Verde Terrace folder. I'd suggest you do the same...

DOWNLOAD: 15 - Smoke Sumthin Remix (ft. Lil Wayne).mp3

Young Jeezy ft. Freddie Gibbs - Do It For You

With this joint, and "Shake Life," I might actually be caring about Jeezy's upcoming Thug Motivation 103, which drops September 20th...

Rufio ft. Chuuwee - U Cartoon Foo's (Video)

Rufio grabs some vocals from Sacramento emcee Chuuwee for a joint off his new album, Rappers Jst Raponit. You like the song? Download it here.

Yelawolf - No Hands (Video)

Now, I havent owned a gaming system since Nintendo 64, but the racing games were always some of my favorites. From San Francisco Rush to F1 Pole Position (pause) to Cruis'n The World to Mario Kart (if that counts). But I digress, Ubisoft has enlisted the new Shady signee for the theme music to their new racing game, Driver: San Francisco. It's funny to me that there are so many driving games about San Francisco when it is quite possibly the most annoying place in the world to drive...

J. Cole - Cole World: The Sideline Story (Cover + Tracklist)

So, as you know J. Cole started doing this little promo thing called "Any Given Sunday," from which the first 2 weeks brought us music, the 3rd week brought us a ustream, and week 4 brought us the cover art for the new album. I didnt put up the cover last week, but now that week 5 has rolled around, and the tracklist has been released as well, I figured I'd throw it up... Cole World drops September 27th.

01. Intro
02. Dollar And A Dream III
03. Can’t Get Enough f. Trey Songz
04. Lights Please
05. Interlude
06. Sideline Story
07. Mr. Nice Watch f. Jay-Z
08. Cole World
09. In the Morning f. Drake
10. Lost Ones
11. Nobody’s Perfect f. Missy Elliott
12. Never Told (prod. No I.D.)
13. Rise & Shine
14. God’s Gift
15. Breakdown
16. Cheer Up
17. Nothing Lasts Forever [Bonus]
18. Work Out [Bonus]
19. Daddy’s Little Girl [Bonus]

So my main question is, why have people suddenly started to release singles and then list them as "Bonus Tracks" for the album? Huh? Work Out is the lead single, and yet we're only getting it on the album as a bonus? I blame Nas for starting that trend with "Thief's Theme" on Street Disciple. But yeah, basically why arent "Lights Please," and "In The Morning" the bonus tracks?

Nemo Achida - Goodbye Brooklyn EP

Ok, so it seems like at least twice a month I get to look like a fool. I try and keep my ears open for dope shit...and have a stable of people trying to put me on to dope shit. But every now and again something gets lost in that checks and balance system. Luckily, I'm not finding out about this project years later. Nemo Achida put out this Goodbye Brooklyn EP, back in June....and we missed it. John over at Potholes put me on to this. Pretty awesome little project, with jazzed out smooth beats, accompanied by Nemo's in pocket laid back delivery. Check it well as the video for Big Lights, Deep Shades.

Big Lights, Deep Shades from Nemo Achida on Vimeo.

Action Bronson & Smoke Dza - Big Bad Dangerous

Dza and Bronson, two of the most blogged dudes link up, apparently for a project. Not much info other than that...This banger is produced by 183rd. And its fire.

Toki Wright - Real Live (Ft Yakub) & Video

Good GAWD. Seems like every time Toki, the RSE black sheep, puts out a track its an absolute BANGER....and yet some how still always goes underneath the radar. This dude needs to get some love. He's consistent as fuck and always is out flexing different styles. Check the banger out and show some support and cop's only a buck.

EDIT: Video Out Too

Makeshift - King Choosey (Album)

King Choosey...or as you know him by, Makeshift drops the heat! Really liking what I've heard from this thus far.

Lee Bannon - Search & Destroy (Ft Chuck Inglish)

The homie Lee Bannon lets loose his first single off Fantastic Plastic, which isn't actually due out for awhile (next year). So we'll see if this, fuzzed out glitch hop song makes it. Definitely not the style of production we're used of hearing from Bannon...but the innovative tendencies are still there.

Best Interlude of Year?

yes sir

Blu - NoYork! (Covers + Tracklist)

1. Doin’ Nothin’ (Feat. U-God)
2. Everything Ok (Feat. Jack Davey)
3. Never Be The Same (Feat. Sa-Ra & Noladarling)
4. Above Crenshaw (Feat. Cashus King)
6. Soupa (Feat. Suzi Analogue)
7. Hours
8. Annie Hall (Feat. Chop, Cherry Pop & Tiombelockhart)

12. My Sunshine (Feat. Nia Andrews)
13. Jazmine (Feat. Andy Allo)
14. Jazzmen
15. Ronal Morgan (Feat. Edan)
16. Keep Ush Inn
17. Doin’ Something (Feat. El Prez, Pac Div, Uni, J*Davey, Tiron & Ayomari)

Apparently Blu was passing out copies of the new album for free during his west coast stops on the Rock The Bells tour. Rumor has it he's just tired of waiting on Warner Brothers to do something with the album, so he took matters into his own hands. He did not, however, leak the album, or approve of the leak. But he is aware of the state of the internet, and says that he's okay with people downloading the album as long as they go out and support him when the album drops in stores. So if you want the album, the internet has it out there somewhere, but I'm not gonna give it to you. DO WORK SON. And dont forget to support Blu when the album drops in a million years.

Phonte ft. Elzhi - Not Here Anymore

Phonte drops off his first single from the upcoming album, Charity Starts At Home, which drops September 27th on +FE Music. This is definitely my most anticipated album at the moment. This also answers the question to whether 'Te would be rapping or singing on this new album... Both. I'm with it. #NEWTIGALLONEWTIGALLONEWTIGALLONEWTIGALLONEWTIGALLO

J. NiCS - Till Death

J. Nics lets go of a new joint from his upcoming Southern Niggas Aint Slow: The Tribute, which is part one of a two part mixtape project involving The Tribute and The Product.

Murs & Ski Beatz - Love & Rockets Episodes 1&2

Murs preps his new album, Love & Rockets, which is produced entirely by Ski Beatz and will drop October 11th through Dame Dash's DD172/BluRoc label. I gotta admit, Murs kinda dropped the ball with that Melrose album, which didnt seem possible to me because I LOVE Terrace Martin... But somehow that album just kinda came out meh. This one already sounds pretty dope... SO WORD.

Timbo King - From Babylon To Timbuk2

Timbo King has always been one of my favorite Wu Affiliate's . He was always right behind Hell Razah and Killa Priest, with me. It's kind of a trip that this album happens to be his first official album put out. Seems like he's releases a good deal of tapes over the years. Either way, this album completely surprised me with how all around dope it is. Do yourself the favor and check this album's rare that we get something linked with the Hive in this day and age, that is an end to end burner....

Def Dee - Cheap Heat (Beat Tape)

Youngster Def Dee, hailing from Seattle, has recently signed with The Mello Music Group. In celebration of that he's letting go of a free beat tape. I'm pretty amazed at how young yet, gritty this kid sounds. It comes off like a straight early 90's dust tape. Be sure to grab this.
