For a little context, Javelin are a Brooklyn based hip-hop instrumental group that makes incredible summery jams out of samples and keyboards. Their self-released album Jamz & Jemz is one of the best things I’ve heard all year. This video captures Ohio rapper Stalley and ML-fave Curren$y rocking over the..
Homeboy Sandman’s elegy for the homeless is an emotional powerhouse. Something harsh to think about on Thanksgiving. Download: Homeboy Sandman – Angels With Dirty Faces (produced by J57) Bonus: Homeboy Sandman – A Sacred Place (AtManAnDa Learns Magick) (produced by R. Thentic) off AtManAnDa Volume 1 (As Above So Below)..
I wasn’t expecting much from Obie Trice’s post-Shady Records opus, but Special Reserve is his best work yet. MoSS’ production suits him very well, random as their collaboration is. Ex-major label rappers usually fizzle, but it sounds like Obie found a comfortable niche. Download: Obie Trice – I am (produced..
Here’s the second leak from The Demo (get the first here). Terrace Martin continues to raise the bar. Crazy dope how he backs up the vocals with a backup singer. Download: Terrace Martin – Hip-Hop (ft. Kurupt, Bad Lucc, Nico) via Xclusives Zone Sphere: Related Content
Another track off Ghetto’s Trunk Music mixtape. Worst rapper name since Game. Download: Ghetto – Bang Bang (ft. Ea$y Money) (produced by MoSS) via Sermon’s Domain Sphere: Related Content

Danny!’s new album is FREE! Danny! is what Charles Hamilton would sound like if he didn’t suck. Playful, sharp rhymes over slightly left-field production. You have no excuse not to download it since it’s FREE! Download: Danny! – Where Is Danny? Sphere: Related Content
Verse Simmonds – Buy You A Round (Remix) (ft. Jim Jones, Jermaine Dupri, OJ Da Juiceman, Juvenile, Game).
CLASSIC cheesy club banger from Bobby Valentino Jeremih Pleasure P Verse Simmonds. I love how Game raps about having a gun on him on a song meant for 14-year-old girls. Game’s fierce verse compensates for OJ, Jermaine, and Juvi’s shitty ones. I’m about to get some chick pregnant to this..
(image) Wale condemns gold-digging women on this 9th Wonder-produced gem. Mr. Folarin has a knack for exploring relationship issues without being a cornball R&B rapper. Sucks that this wasn’t on Attention Deficit. Download: Wale – Beast (produced by 9th Wonder) via 9th Wonder Bonus: Wale – The Manipulation (produced by..
