I mentioned Koncrete a couple of months ago. His mixtape, Well Grounded, is set to be released on March 26. He just sent us a freestyle, on the much used Over beat. This dude has a ridiculous flow, and he is definitely an artist to watch. Download: Koncrete- Kon Air..
The Usual Suspects are a Chicago-based rap crew who just released their self-titled debut EP online.

Via NR A nice new track by the very talented Fresno native, perfectly suited for a rainy day. Exile’s beat sounds like it could be off of Below The Heavens and Fash rips it. Fashawn’s debut Boy Meets World comes out September 1st, and is produced entirely by Exile. This..
