Future continues his streak of dropping free material after his return to the mixtape circuit in late 2014 with Monster. Now he teams up with fellow Atlantan, one of the city’s most successful producers, Zaytoven. Beast Mode finds Future rapping with little help from others (there is only two features in Young Scooter and Juvenile). Safe to say the current streak Future is on is a welcome return to form for the autotune connoisseur. Stream and download Future and Zaytoven’s Beast Mode EP after the jump.
When Dipset announced they’d be reuniting again and dropping a mixtape many, including myself, didn’t think much of it. It was a classic case of ‘I’ll believe it when I see it.’ And now, I am a believer as Dipset have shared a new track “Have My Money” on Funk Flex’s radio show. “Have My Money” features OG Dipset members Jim Jones, Freekey Zeeky, Juelz Santana, and of course Cam’ron. Listen to the new Dipset track after the jump!
The slew of free releases keeps on coming this Black Friday! First you were treated with Wu-Tang Clan’s A Better Tomorrow, the collective’s first album in over seven years, then B.o.B dropped a freebie on you with New Black, and now as promised A$AP Ferg is lending you some brand new heat with his DJ Drama hosted Ferg Forever mixtape. The mixtape features a whopping 19 brand new cuts (including “Perfume,” “Doe-Active,” and “Talk It”) with a star-studded guest list (M.I.A., SZA, Twista, Big Sean, Wynter Gordon, and YG.) Peep Fergenstein’s Ferg Forever tape after the jump!
Bobby Ray is here to save the day. While you’re out shopping the deals on Black Friday B.o.B is delivering the goods for free via his Soundcloud page, as he drops his New Black mixtape. The eight track mixtape is a direct follow-up to his No Genre 2 mixtape which dropped in July and a precursor to his forthcoming studio album. Listen to New Black after the jump.
A$AP and their promises… tsk tsk. We already know how that story goes. But despite the constant push backs, delays, and flat out projects being scrapped the A$AP Mob is good at dropping that heat when everyone is least expecting it. You may recall Rocky dropping the aggressive “Multiply” out of the blue back in early October and looks as though Ferg is following suit with the equally menacing and braggadocios new cut “Perfume”. To sum up Ferg’s new song in one word: banger. “Perfume”, produced by Philo$ Cult, is set to appear on his upcoming Gangsta Grillz mixtape, Ferg Forever. But we’ll see about that. Listen after the jump!
New Atlanta’s power trio Migos return for their second official mixtape of 2014 (following the excellent No Label 2) in the hilariously titled Rich Ni**a Timeline. The new mixtape contains eighteen no frills exotic trap bangers equipped with amazing, over-the-top adlibs and trademark triplet flows. Also, from what we have gathered, there are also absolutely no features present on Rich Ni**a Timeline. Quite a refreshing stance in modern hip-hop, we must say. Stream and download Rich Ni**a Timeline after the jump. Quavo! Ugh!
Chief Keef’s new mixtape Back From the Dead 2 appropriately arrives on Halloween and the 19-year-old handles the heft of the production (producing exactly 16 of the 20 tracks) on the mixtape. In addition to producing a majority of the tracks, Sosa doesn’t recruit many for features instead opting to do most of the work himself (Gucci Mane and Tadoe both appear on a track each). If you wanted that old Sosa then you should probably just stick to listening to everything preceding Finally Rich because Back From the Dead 2 may perhaps be his most experimental/left field effort yet. Stream and download Back From the Dead 2 after the jump!
Childish Gambino’s DJ Drama hosted Gangsta Grillz mixtape is here. That’s right, you read that correctly: a Childish Gambino Gangsta Grillz mixtape. Hip-hop has really come a looong way from Lil Wayne spitting over the now infamous “Cannon” beat to Gambino. STN MTN finds Donald Glover’s rap alter ego Childish Gambino utilizing the platform as a half mixtape/half EP. For the STN MTN portion of the project Gambino will freestyle over some notable beats including “Move That Dope” and “Southern Hospitality” alongside original material. There’s also a concept at play here, something about money made from the EP keeping Kauai clean? Who truly knows when you’re dealing with Gambino. Stream/download STN MTN after the jump.
First of the month is here! And you know what that means: new installment to Cam’ron’s 1st of the Month series. It’s the fourth edition and features five total tracks, including the singles “Snapped” and “Baby Ain’t Mine”. Download and stream after the jump!
They’ve done did a lot of sh*t just to live this here lifestyle. Birdman’s Rich Gang returns today with The Tour Part 1 featuring young Atlanta stalwarts, Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan. The mixtape comes neatly wrapped with twenty total tracks and is currently available for stream/download. Check it out after the jump.
From Rae’s Throwback Thursday series is this gem remix of a Luther jam. His TBT tribute are like the best cross between the music your auntie played at the barbecue and the tunes you snuck off to listen to with your cousin in the den. It’s kind of criminal how good he is at rhyming, even over these smoothed out retro R&B tracks. Listen after the jump.
