From the tracks I've heard on this project I cant complain. Featuring appearances by Crooked I, Joe Budden, Bun B, Elzhi, Black Milk and more. Well Royce, hopefully its up from here.

New music from iLLA (formerly iLLAJ, guess he decided changed his name and drop the "J." Eehh, whatever). This track is the first leak off his upcoming FreEP which drops....soon. He didnt give us any info on a name of the project or release date so we're just going to go with "coming soon."
Download: iLLA (AKA iLLAJ) - "Millions" / Limelinx
If you cant tell, I've been on a hot streak this weekend with the new tunes...and I feel like Im just getting started. This next joint comes from my dude AC off his upcoming "Send The Scouts Out" mixtape. Dope use of the Big Pun sample by Hasan Insane. Look out for the visuals to this track to drop very soon directed by Steven Tapia.

If the last 3 Cool Kids tracks I posted had you excited, how about 1 more. Yeah, I know I'm the best. Tacklebox drops later today.
Download: The Cool Kids - "So Neat" / Limelinx
Damn! How in the world did I forget to post this! My dude Brandun DeShay dropped the 3rd installment in his mixtape series recently. Featuring appearances by Dom Kennedy, Charles Hamilton, Von Pea of Tanya Morgan and more. I've been rolling with Brandun since day one so I'm super excited to see dude making major moves. "Volume Four! To Go" coming soon!

This is the first time I've heard of Skooda Chose but with Chip on the feature and Chucky on the beat I couldnt pass this one up. This track is off Skooda's upcoming mixtape "Top Five Material Part 2." The track is pretty dope so I gotta keep my eye on Skooda.

3 new Cool Kids tracks (thank you Shake)?? Oh yeah, this weekend is officially one of the best weekends for new music. Its been so long since I heard some new Cool Kids music I was about to put these two on the back of a milk carton. These tracks are off their new Tacklebox mixtape which is scheduled to drop tomorrow night. While I'm excited to add a new mixtape to my .mp3 playing device, I would really like to hear a full length album from The Cool Kids. Until then, this will have to do.

No matter what anyone says (and I'm sure I wont find too many to disagree) B.O.B is the man! Dude is so talented and I think an artist like him is what the game needs right now. Check this live cover of MGMT's "Kids" B.o.B recently performed at BBC's Live Lounge. If you still haven't scooped up The Adventures of Bobby Ray, please do yourself a favor and get it today!

About to head out for a few hours so Imma leave you with another track off "Thank Me Later." You might remember me posting this track a few weeks ago and now Im here to bless you with the complete CDQ version (props to 2DB). The album drops in a couple of weeks and even though we've heard a good amount of leaked tracks off the project, there's still a lot more in store. Check out the past few posts in case you need to catch up. Pay day was yesterday so now I'm off the the mall to go spend some of this hard earned cash. Catch you later.

Its a little early in the A.M. to be blogging about...well, anything. I couldn't sleep last night and was up mad early this morning, so after a cup of coffee and health bowl of Lucky Charms I figured "Fu*k it, why not do some blogging." To kick things off for the Memorial Day weekend here's the visuals for David Guetta's new single "Gettin' Over You" featuring Chris Willis, Fergie and hip-hoppers LMFAO. I love watching videos like this. The song is fun, the video is fun and it looks like everyone in video is having fun. This release is the 5th single from Guetta's 2009 album One Love.
Amanda & Le Messie are back with some brand new FALSE threads to keep you cool for the upcoming warmer months. Get it...cool for the warmer mont...ahh never mind. Everything is still featured in a Black/ White colorway and everything is still handmade. Besides the name, these two always stay true to their product. Available now via the FALSE online store. BTW, Im feelin Le Messie's head tat. Dude never has to get a hair cut again...ever.
Wow, haven't heard anything new from these dudes in a while! I have no clue if this is off an upcoming project or what but the sh*t is sick. Now all I need to fully enjoy the track is a red cup, some friends and some alcohol. Bottoms up!
Download: FKi - "Red Cup" / Limelinx
Some new Kid Cudi on a Friday before a 3 day weekend?!? Yeah, I'd say this is a good look. Im looking forward to that Almighty GloryUS (Cudi x Chip) project. Until then, snack on this.

Yes folks, the new music just keeps on coming...and I'm not even close to dishing out everything I have!

Keeping the mood for today as energized as possible, heres some new music from The White Panda camp. Word is they're working on a new mixtape which they will be announcing the title and release later this week.

Damn! This is turning out to be a great start to a 3 day weekend! First some new Drake x Jay-Z and now the first single off Yeezy's upcoming "Good Ass Job." Sounds like this may not be a 100% complete mastered version but it still knocks extra hard. Good Ass Job 'Ye...Good Ass Job!
Download: Kanye West feat. Dwele - "Power" / Limelinx
I haven't posted any new mixtapes in a few days so I was excited to see this in my inbox. I took a listen to a few tracks on this joint and Im please with what I've heard so far. Im sure you will be too. Enjoy!

Ok, I know what you're thinking "Marc, didn't you say you weren't posting anymore Drake tracks from his upcoming album?" Well my only response to that is...I changed my mind. haha. Plus my homie Jigga is on the track and this sh*t goes hard. So just download and say thank you.
Update: Apparently this "untagged" version of the track is missing a few things...like actual lyrics. The tagged version that dropped a few days ago is the real version of "Light Up" and the untagged version is about a minute shorter because of some missing lyrics from both Drizzy and Jay. Some folks are pretty mad this has been posted (props to NMC for the headsup) but I actually could give a f*ck less. I'd rather bump some untagged Drake until the official track drops rather than tolerate annoying talking over a track any day. So if you're like me and will cop "Thank Me Later" when its released, feel free to let this hold you over as an appetizer until the main course is served. Update 2: Official CDQ version added.

My dude Ivan hit me up a few days ago and put me on to this but I forgot to post it up. As the San Fran brand TRUE continues with this "Native Leagues Project" they link up with Crooks & Castles for the third installment. This time around the design team at Crooks & Castles decided to honor both the San Francisco Giants & Oakland A's (Crooks is from Cali) featuring the iconic Crooks & Castles Medusa logo with colors from each team. Now this is something to be proud of wearing this summer. The new collection is available now via the TRUE SF, TRUE East and the TRUE Clothing online store.

That's right dudes and dudettes. Its been about a year since I closed off the Comments section of the site and (drum roll please) as of today I've officially re-opened that department. I originally closed it off because I wanted to focus more on the content I was posting and less on the comments and outside talk. I also wanted to pump up my monthly visits, and if you spotted my "Thank You!!!" post a few weeks back I think its time to let the people talk. So with that said, feel free to sound off (good or bad) about anything you see here. Its all gravy baby!
Aight folks, here it is...the latest and last leak from Drizzy's upcoming album "Thank Me Later." Wanna hear more? Well you have to dig deep and purchase the album on June 15th. I do have to admit that Drake and Alicia make a really good pair on tracks. Make sure you download the "Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)" remix a few posts back and see what I mean.
Download: Drake feat. Alicia Keys - "Fireworks" / Limelinx
If you haven't been following American Idol for the last few months...well, join the crowd. I feel off a few weeks ago but would tune in from time to time just to see who was leaving each week. After it was all said and done only Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze were left and when the people spoke, Lee walked away as the American Idol winner for season 9. While this was a time to celebrate, it was also a time to bid a fond farewell to the shows founder the one and only Simon Cowell. Paula even showed up immediately after she left the bar to wish Simon a goodbye. Now that Lee is the winner I'm sure we'll be hearing his U2 cover of "Beautiful Day" flooding the airwaves. On behalf of all the SUPERXOFFICIAL staff, I wish Lee and Simon all the best and much success.
New music from King Mez. Havent heard anything new from my dude in a while but this joint makes up for lost time. If you're not familiar with Mez, heres a good opportunity to add some dope music to your collection.

Sorry for the lack of posts tonight. Blame the good 'ol 9 to 5 for rendering me extremely tired and somewhat lazy. All in all, I think leaving you with some new Donnis off his upcoming Fashionably Late mixtape, which drops June 22, is a good way to end the night. Now I'm off to bed to get rested up and do the same routine tomorrow that I did today. Yeah me. lol
Download: Donnis - "More Fire" / Limelinx
J-Hype and my dude AC recreate Katy Perry & Snoop Dogg's "California Gurls." I'm not too sure who J-Hype is but when I say AC featured on the track I was sold. Just like the original, this is a straight up party track...and now us east coasters can relate. BTW, in case you've never been, NYC girls are soooooo dope. Word.
Download: J-Hype feat. AC - "New York City Gurls" / Limelinx
New music from Doxx. This time Doxx hops on Soulja Boy's "Pretty By Swag" and kills it. Very dope freestyle. Check it out.

The Drizzy tracks continue to leak in! This joint has been floating around for a while as a radio rip without Wayne, then a radio rip with just Wayne, then a radio rip with Drake and Santa Clause, then a radio rip with Santa and tags, then a....aight Im done. haha. Drake, Wayne, CDQ version, what more can you ask for? Boi 1da on the beat!

Check out the brand new Rich Kids Club website, with free shipping on all sunglasses. Getcha shine on baabay!
Yeah, I'd say this is a good way to end a Sunday night. Sh*t, new music from Drake and Jeezy would be a good way to end any night. Thank Me Later in stores June 15th. R.I.P. Aaliyah.

New music from the left coast MC Nipsey Hu$$le. I really like this joint. Both the beat and the lyrics go hard. South Central State Of Mind drops August 31st!

Has anyone else seen this sh*t? According to MTV.com, Aubrey Louis Berry (the man accused of killing rapper "Dolla") was acquitted on all charges stating the shooting "was an act of self defense." I wasn't at the scene when this occurred but damn, is killing a rapper legal in today's world? It seems that once your a famous emcee any and every thing that you do or that happens to you carries the most harsh judicial consequence. Anyone recall a Jamal "Shyne" Barrow going to jail for 10 years? And he didn't kill anyone! Now you have this young man who's murdered and no one pays a price? This is crazy to me. A life is a life no matter how you live it. *SMH. R.I.P. Dolla.
Its been a pretty slow ass day for new music so I decided to take it back with a "Remember When" post. I actually heard this joint while I was out the other night and it took me back...waaayy back. The Firm was going strong back in '97 and even though the Dr. Dre x The Firm self titled project was a bit lack luster, this track was one of their best. Needless to say, there was only one album from the group and only Nas and AZ are still relevant today. With that said, lets take a trip down memory lane.
Download: The Firm - "Phone Tap" / Limelinx
Ever hear the age ol' saying "don't judge a book by its cover?" Of course, we all have. Well I'm going to guess after you took one glance at the pic above you're assuming this is some folk music I'm posting. If so, shame on you for stereotyping! haha. Actually Illustrate is a Jewish rapper with a pretty dope underground style and flow. On "The Joke" he even pokes a little fun at himself and the immediate assumptions he receives when he tells the crowd he's an emcee. On the track "The Look" Illustrate tells us a story about a "Larry David-like character attempting to live the same nightlife that 50 cent or Kanye talk about on their tracks; only his experience isn't quite the same as theirs." So if you're open to adding a little variety to your digital music collection, download these 2 tracks and loosen up a bit.

Along with most of America, I was along for the ride early in the season of "America Idol." I fell out of it when Ryan seemed a little "off" one episode. Anyway, during my short time watching the show I became a quick fan of Andrew Garcia. After his Paula Abdul performance, dude was hit or miss each week but I dug his personality and his voice was really unique. After he got the boot I was hoping to hear some original material pop up on the internets to keep his buzz going. Alas, its been a few months and I've heard nothing. Then I stumbled on to this track from a group his was previously in called "The Adrian William Project." This is an acoustic joint they recorded with just Andrew on the vocals. Folks, this is a really, really good song. I believe Andrew has some great talent and if he links up with the right people he can be huge. Until that day comes, here's something you can add to your iPod's and vibe to. Please...hold your applause.
