Brand new tape from Ghetto FA-BO-LO-US. Enjoy it without DJ Drama ruining your day. The intro and skits have been removed, which results in a 12 track tape.

The Weeknd - Echoes of Silence (Mixtape)

So I recently returned from a two week vacation. First time sitting down at a computer and see this little diddly in the inbox. NICE WAY TO RETURN.

Throwback Of The Day: Timbaland, Static & Aaliyah - I Am Music


As I was scrolling through my iPod to find something to listen to on my half hour drive to work this morning, I scrolled all the way up to the A's and didnt make it too far after that. I've always been a huge fan of Aaliyah. I remember when the "Are You That Somebody" video came out, and she was steadily #2 on TRL, week after week after week. And I had it mapped out so that I'd turn the TV on at like 3:52 exactly, just in time for them to go into her video, and then I'd turn it off. But I digress, I decided to play the 2 disc Ultimate collection. And as I got through "Age Aint Nothing But A Number," "4 Page Letter," "At Your Best," and even "Come Back In One Piece," I came upon the song, "I Am Music." It was originally released on Timbaland and Magoo's sophomore release, Indecent Proposal (which I also own), and also featured Static Major of the R&B trio Playa. I immediately remembered the song, and knew I liked it, but as I listened again for the first time in easily 5-6 years, I fell in love with this music all over again...

Rest In Peace Aaliyah & Static Major

AEli - Double Minded

So, if you follow this blog religiously (which all of you should), you'll know that a few weeks ago, I started a tumblr. I quickly lost interest in posting things on it. Like, very quickly. But I still enjoy using the website to keep track of a handful of other people's pages. And while I was on there today, I came across a song that really just stuck out to me as being super dope. I'd never heard of the artist before, but I was just in the right mood, and I played the song easily 4 times through... And because I'm a nice guy, I want to share this music with you. The song is called "Double Minded," and it's by singer/producer AEli. He is part of a crew called Elephant In The Room, which appears to be based out of LA. If you like the song, click HERE to check out the Elephant In The Room tumblr page for other songs and future updates...

Vote On XXL's 2012 Freshmen List

Apparently the industry insiders at XXL magazine have grown tired of trying to let us know about who they think is worthy of some buzz. So this year, they are putting the fate of the 2012 Annual "Freshmen 10" in your hands. With 50 different artists to choose from, you can only vote once. Unless you switch browsers, vote again on your cell phone, vote from your work computer, etc. You know... You can only vote "once." Now, I'm not trying to sway your vote by posting the picture above in this post, I'm just tired of Emilio being left off the list. Hit the link to see the full list of nominees, and cast your vote. And I swear to you, if V-Nasty makes this list, I quit music forever.

CAST YOUR VOTE: XXL 2012 Freshmen Candidates

And just in case you were wondering, my ideal list would be:
Action Bronson
ASAP Rocky
Casey Veggies
Danny Brown
Emilio Rojas
Schoolboy Q

(Again, this is just the 10 I would chose. Not the 10 I think will be chosen. Also, where the eff is Dom? Just saying.)

Azealia Banks ft. Lazy Jay - 212

Azealia Banks. That's her name. She's definitely interesting. I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about this song, but the more I hear it, the more I like it. And word is, Kanye just reached out to her... I have a feeling this will not be the last time you mispronounce the name Azealia Banks.

DOWNLOAD: Azealia Banks ft. Lazy Jay - 212

Blu & Exile - Give Me My Flowers While I Can Smell Them (Album)

Blu and Exile drop off a new album via bandcamp. Its not exactly new to being made, but it is new to us. I guess this material was all recorded in 2009. I dont care though. As long as it sounds more like Below The Heavens and less like No York! Stream it below, or if youre feeling particularly kind, drop $15 on the download...

Big Urban - Kick The Can

So, I was looking through some old music the other day, and I came across Cool Calm Pete's Lost, which is an amazing album, if you dont have it. But it got me wondering where he went after Def Jux died last year. So I got to googling, and found out that he is involved with this new label called, Modern Shark. So I grabbed their latest mixtape (which you can get below), and this joint by Big Urban really stuck out to me. For clear reasons, I listened to this song first, and as much as he sounds like he sould have been signed to Anticon or something, I really dig this song. So here it is for you to all enjoy with me, and if you want to check out the Modern Shark label mixtape, you can grab that below...

DOWNLOAD: Big Urban - Kick The Can

DOWNLOAD/STREAM: Modern Shark Label Sampler Vol. 3

Emilio Rojas ft. Nikkiya - Blame Me

Smooth new joint from Emilio Rojas and this new chick named Nikkiya, who is pretty dope, and you should get up on her music if you havent yet (click her name in the tags, I posted her mixtape a few months ago). But anyways, this is from Emilio's upcoming tape, Breaking Point, which should be dropping the "third week of January." We'll see.

DOWNLOAD: Emilio Rojas ft. Nikkiya - Blame Me

Stalley & Apollo The Great - Stay Charged

2 new Stalley verses. I wonder how long it's gonna be before Maybach puts out a new Stalley project? Anyways, dont forget, Lincoln Way Nights is out in stores and on iTunes now.

DOWNLOAD: Stalley & Apollo The Great - Stay Charged

Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa ft. Curren$y - OG

I'm telling you... Even the notable songs recently are only half way good... New verse from Spitta... From the soundtrack to what looks like the worst movie ever made.

DOWNLOAD: Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa ft. Curren$y - OG

Red Cafe ft. Trey Songz, Wale & J. Cole - Fly Together (Remix)

...Is Red Cafe like 4 feet tall? Anyways, he's extra meh on the mic, but this joint features new verses from Trigga, Wale & Cole. So add it to your playlist or something. Red Cafe's new album, No One Cares About Me, is coming out never.

DOWNLOAD: Red Cafe ft. Trey Songz, Wale & J. Cole - Fly Together (Remix)

Meek Mill - Faded Too Long

Maybach Music's Meek Mill (thats a lot of M's) jumps on the (in my humblest of opinions) worst beat from Drake's Take Care for a new promo joint. I think there is a Self Made Vol. 2 coming in the near future. So I'll just promo that...

DOWNLOAD: Meek Mill - Faded Too Long

Ke$ha ft. Wiz Khalifa, T.I., Andre 3000 & Lil Wayne - Sleazy Remix 2.0 (Get Sleazier)

Against my better judgment, I'm going to post this song. Because of the rappers. Just close your ears when the hooks comes in.

DOWNLOAD: Ke$ha ft. Wiz Khalifa, T.I., Andre 3000 & Lil Wayne - Sleazy Remix 2.0 (Get Sleazier)

Asher Roth ft. Action Bronson - Choices

Asher lets go of one more new joint from his upcoming project, Pabst & Jazz, which will be hitting the shelves of your local iTunes on December 20th. Asher's been impressing me a lot lately.

DOWNLOAD: Asher Roth ft. Action Bronson - Choices

Common - The Dreamer, The Believer (Abum Stream)

Thanks to the good folks over at the Dopehouse, Common has agreed to put up his brand new album one week early for streaming. And this video is interactive too, so if you click on the song title in the left hand column, it'll jump you right to that song. Or if you prefer to let it play from front to back, just hit play on the video and enjoy...

The Roots - undun (Short Film)

Combining the short video's for 4 new joints on the amazing new Roots album, undun, here is the full short film accompanying the album. This video features the songs, "Tip The Scale," "Stomp," "Make My," and "Sleep." And dont forget to go buy undun immediately.

PURCHASE: The Roots - undun

PackFM - Want What's Mine (BTSTU Remix)

Still pretty fresh off of Pack's, I Fucking Hate Rappers, he's already prepping a new album entitled, The Human Highlight Reel. I know IFHR came out like a year and a half ago, but anything released within 2 years of their last project is HUGE for a QN5 rapper hahaha. NO SHOTS, I'm just still waiting on that Chico and the Man album (and Spicasso, which will never come out). So anyway, check out Pack's new video up top, and download the song below if you dig it...

DOWNLOAD: PackFM - Want Whats Mine (BTSTU Remix)

Wale - Chain Music (Video)

I cant speak for Monk and Poet, but the new singles Ive been hearing have been mad uninspired. But on the flipside, the fourth quarter of oh-11 has seen some of this years illest albums being released (ASAP Rocky, Drake, The Roots, Wale, Action Bronson, etc). So I apologize for the lack of posts lately, shit has just been super boring on the singles tip.

That being said, lets post some more videos of dope shit...

Take what you will from Wale's new single, but this is the shit that I point to whenever someone says that Wale "sold out." Argue it if you want, but I love this song...

In other news, 3:07 might be my favorite thing ever.

One Block Radius - Kick Ya Feet Up (Video)

New joint from the hip pop crew One Block Radius. Hopefully this means there is a new album coming soon.

Niggaz With Latitude - Final Call (Video)

I'm gonna need to see if I can find any Sheisty Khrist solo albums. This NWL album has really made me a huge fan of his.

Terrace Martin ft. Kendrick Lamar & Wiz Khalifa - Do It Again (Video)

I dont love this song. But I'm still excited for Locke High 2, I guess.
