Young Thug’s retail debut is out now. It’s called Barter 6. It was going to be titled Carter 6 but a last minute lawsuit has prevented that from happening.

Get it now on iTunes here and stream the full thing after the jump.

Future is killing this mixtape game right now! After dropping his somewhat decent album Honest in 2014 he went off dropping mixtape gem after mixtape gem.

It’s ten brand spankin’ new tracks with Future and producer Southside on every track. Stream and download after the jump.

Migos are set to drop their debut album YRN later this year but in the meantime the trio of Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset are prepping their successors with Migo Lingo. Contrary to what you may have read online this isn’t exactly a Migos mixtape per se, especially given its misleading title. In fact, Migos only appear on three tracks here. The rest of the mixtape serves as an introduction to fellow Atlanta rappers YRN Lingo, Mango, Domingo, and Migo Bands. Featured on Migo Lingo are frequent Migos collaborators Skippa Da Flippa, Johnny Cinco, and Rich the Kid. You may stream and download the mixtape after the jump. Again: do not go into this thinking it’s a Migos project otherwise you will surely be disappointed.
