Well damn, I guess you learn something new everyday. For one, I had no clue Nottz and Asher Roth were dropping a joint project entitled The Rawth EP. For two, I had no clue that anyone would sample and make a dope ass beat out of the "Mr. Rogers Neighborhood" theme song. Leave it up to Nottz to school the kid. Look out for visuals for this track to surface in the near future.

I really like the fact that Mikey came out on his own and has a different sound that the collective Cool Kids. This video has a nice Summertime BBQ feel to it. The Fall season is upon us now but Ill still bump this joint while I'm cooking out for the last few warmer months.
Hahaha...this video is awesome! Features cameos from Kanye West, DJ Premier, Ryan Leslie, Pharrell, Just Blaze, Yelawolf, ?uestlove and more. As a side note; dont you hate it when those stingy mo' fo's only want to give you one packet of duck sauce when you order Chinese?

Here's the visuals for "Forth Chapter/ In Love With You" from Jared Evan which was recently featured on the hit HBO series. Also peep the visuals below featuring my dude Skateboard P talking about his experience working with Jared. I see big things in dudes future. Big, big things!

Ok, just so I don't feel completely left out can someone please say they didn't know that Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino, aka no relation to Danny Glover, aka star of "Community") was also a music artist? I was doing my usual travels thru the internets looking for material for the site when I came across this album. Now since Donald is a comedian I immediately thought this was some parody stunt for laughs and giggles. So being a huge fan of "Community" I headed over to Donald's web site and started streaming the album. Holy sh*t (this was actually my initial reaction)! His music is on point!! Prior to today I had no clue this dude rapped or sung or was a Kung Fu master (I made that last one up, but this dude seems to be full of surprises). Before you judge, like I did, here's a sample of what you can expect from the album:
Dope right!! I guess the saying is true, you cant judge a book by its cover. I hope this isn't the last music project we get from

If anyone tuned in to The Cleveland Show last night after the Football games, you would have been surprised to see a performance from returning character Kanye/Kenny West and Cleveland Brown. I hope an extended version drops in the near future. I would love to hear a few more verses from Kanye/Kenny and Cleveland. Props to Parajok.

Anyone who comes to this site on a regular basis knows that Im into any and all types of music. I have a pretty eclectic taste and when tracks like this come thru my inbox Im all over it. Scottish beatsmith, Grum, got a hold of The Wombats' latest single "Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)" and gave it a dope club vibe. I love it when producers make me second guess if I like the remix or original better. haha. Props to Hypetrack.

Its Gucci, Pharrell and Nicki. Should you download this joint? Ahh why the hell not. I was actually spitting some major "Haterade" at Nicki last night at a party over my homeboys house. I can respect her for getting her money up, but as an emcee she is just tooooo animated for me. Oh well, as long as cats keep featuring her I guess I cant hate too much. Enjoy the tunes. Burrr.

Wow, we haven't heard from this dude in a while! Badio is back and to mark his return to SUPERXOFFICIAL he delivers a freestlye over Trae The Truth's "Incredible." I'll admit, like most folks I'm a fan of a freestyle but I would really like to hear some original tracks from Badio. A lot of the material I used to receive from him was original and super quality. This joint is ok but Id like to see him get back to the stuff that caught my attention in the beginning.

The only good thing about catching up on a weeks worth of posts is that I can re-liberate tracks that some of you may have missed out on. But, before I get to the Major Leaguers I have to show love to a few artists that hit my inbox a few weeks ago. Ive been crazy busy and I never got around to posting these tracks. To kick things off, heres a new joint from g.Bailey w/ Johnny Juliano on the beat.
Download: g.Bailey - "The Life" / Limelinx
G.O.O.D. Friday continues to reign supreme. I do have one question; why is Swizz Beatz on so many new Kanye tracks? Is this a pre-cursor for things to come featuring these two? I guess time will tell. For now, just enjoy some G.O.O.D. music.

My apologies for the lack of posts in the last few days. Ive been working some crazy overtime and when I get home I just want to crack open a nice cold beer and watch TV. haha. How about I make it up to everyone with giving you "Gonorrhea." Huh? Oh, wait...no no no not that type of Gonorrhea! This is the type featuring Lil Wayne and Drake of Wayne's upcoming Im Not A Human EP. You people have a sick mind!

This track is on point, and I love The Cool Kids feature. Look out Travis' upcoming project Give The Drummer Some coming soon.

No to sound too soft but this track reminds me of my wife and our wedding day. Whoever wrote this is a genius. Lets hope Bruno doesn't get too caught up on those drug charges and it outshines his music. I'll post the visuals for the original track below for those that wanna check it out. #Sundaynightdedication

What better way to kick things off for this evening with some new Mayer Hawthorne. The 80's vibe on this track is awesome! Mayer Hawthorne has yet to displease. On an unrelated topic, I just finished watching the series premier of "The Event" and I have to say its shaping up to be a pretty dope show. Just found my "Lost" replacement.
Download: Mayer Hawthorne - "No Strings"
New visuals from Kellee Maize. The video for "Third Eye" features rainbows, lightning, backflips, and Kellee Maize. What more can you ask for.
Yeah folks, my Ravens didn't pull thru for me in the final quarter and took a L to the Bengals. That's ok, its just the 2nd game of the season. I know most fake ass fans will hit the Twitter and Blogosphere tonight protruding their hate but its whatever. I just call them fools "Bandwagon Bustas." *Smh. Now on to why you really came here today. Here's 3 dope new joints from my dude Donnis. I swear, this cat gets a lot of stones thrown at him but I dig his music. Yeah, Wiz' version of "Black & Yellow" is better but a freestyle is a freestyle you know. As for his other music...well if I didn't like it homie wouldn't be gracing this digital pages. I just let the haters hate ya know. Make sure you look out for his Fashionably Late EP dropping September 28th.

I need to take a quick break from the frustration my Ravens are putting me thru in this game vs. the Bengals. Blogging always calms my nerves. Here's some unreleased music from Cuddi and Hil. There's some back and forth about this being an "official" Cuddi track but I could care less. The people want dope new music and that's what I'm here for. The joint has a few tags here and there but it doesn't hurt the listening value of the track. Enjoy!

This joint is easily my favorite from the G.O.O.D. Friday releases. To be honest, I wouldnt be mad if this track featured no one else by Mos. Damn I love hearing that dude rap. They could have also left out Swizz. With all that said its still a hot fu*king track. Now what its all said and done, who do you think will release the "G.O.O.D. Friday" complete series mixtape first?

Photographer Derick G. cooked up his own visual rendition of Drizzy's "Light Up" featuring Jay and Lil Wayne via prison phone. The video features an all female cast and I love how he worked in Wayne's phone verse at the end. Besides the creative aspect of this video, it features an all female cast. Did I already mention that? Press play.
(Spotted @ TITS)
I held out as long as I could without posting a Lil B track but this joint just pushed me over the edge. I mean...*sigh...I don't know what hell to think of this dude. Many say hes pushing boundaries, others say hes on some Rock/Hip Hop sh*t, but I really think this dude is high. Like really, really high. His tracks make absolutely no sense, his lyrics are damn near gibberish but when its all said and done (for some reason) I walk away saying "swag, swag, swag, swag, whoop, whoop, whoop, whoop." Call this what you want but I'm only giving it some shine because I respect this dude for publicly saying whatever words and/ or phrase comes to mind, making it all rhyme and drawing major attention for what would otherwise be called the ramblings of a fool. "Bitch I'm Paris Hilton, Hilton, Hilton, Bitch I'm Paris Hilton!"

I spoke on posting this mixtape series a few days ago and, so I avoid making false promises, here's the entire 3 part "Rest Stop" series from Marky.

Fresh off their collab with Pharrell, here's the visuals for the Skateboard P co-produced track "The Good Life." Download link below.
I took a little blogging break yesterday, but Im back in full force tonight. To get things started, heres a new track from UNKLE with the help of your favorite rappers favorite rapper, Mr. Lupe Fiasco. After hearing this track, I would LOVE to hear a full UNKLE x Lupe project. Guess I better add that to my collaboration wish list with Kanye x Nas and MGMT x Kid Cudi.

I'm sure you all are familiar with the original Drizzy "Miss Me" track. Well Bun B liberated the original version featuring himself and Drake. Yeah, I could have just posted that version and let it be, right? Wrong! I missed Lil Wayne on the joint (no irony). So how do you solve that problem? Create a

You saw the VMA performance, then you may have downloaded a TV rip of the track now SXO is here to deliver the CDQ version of "Runaway." I expected something a little "harder" featuring a track with Pusha but I guess this will do. Now lets give a toast to the douchbags!
