It's been a while since a new Uness and AC track has graced these pages. The production on this track is insane!

Roc Nation's rising star is back with another new joint. Still wondering when an album will drop from J. I would even be ok with rumors of an album. Even a fan made tracklist and/ or video would be ok. Guess Ill take what I can get for now.

Ahh, yes. The 3 day Memorial weekend has come to a close. A lot of sun, drinking, friends...and more drinking to remember until next year. In all honesty, this was one of the best Memorial Day weekends I've had in a long long time. So lets keep the good times rolling with a new Jeezy mixtape! No, its not TM103 but it'll do. Includes features from Lil Wayne, Fabolous, Yo Gotti, Freddie Gibbs and more!

You neighborhood Pusha hops on one of my favorite Spring/ Summer 2011 tracks.

Ok, for real. This track is getting posted for the features ONLY. I've heard Kirko whateverthefuck on the radio a few times but the name just sounded too much like a porn star for me to listen more than 10 seconds of the song. With that said, a question to all the ladies; do you actually give a response to any dude that holler "What Yo Name Iz?" If so, please scratch "marry a Doctor" off your bucket list.

I heard this track yesterday, and I was going to post it yesterday. Why didn't I post it yesterday? Because I was too lazy. Well, here it is. Nothing to special. Just Wayne getting his Justin Bieber on. At least that's what it sounds like to me. Don't own a radio to know what I'm talking about? Well proceed to click and download below. On a side note, Im still trying figure out the new girlfriend thing? From Trina to a Austrian foreign exchange student just seems odd to me. One thing is for sure, I gotta give props on the Nike "Mamma Bear" sneakers.

I LOVE this track. Especially how they incorporated Mike Epps into the joint. Dizzzope. With that said, I wonder how many people are going to support this project? Yes, we have Em. Yes, we have Royce. But do we have a similar fan base between Em and Royce? Humm, I dunno. Overall I think it'll do fine. We just need to get some of these leaks on the radio (92Q feel free to use SXO as your source for all the best of the best of the best sh*t. I don't mind.).

Not exactly the visuals I envisioned for this track. In fact, I would go as far as to say I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be fan made. Can someone get a real director over here to re-do this video?
Ok, you know what. No more hate. Im officially a Nicki Minaj fan. Yep, thats right I said it (even though I may regret it later). Truth be told Nicki is the baddest chick in the game right now, and tracks like this continue to prove why she's running 'ish. Swizz kills the beat and Nicki creates yet another catchy tune that will soon spread like a virus on the radio. Five letters, YMCMB.

This dude is steadly taking up more and more space on my iPod. The DMV is producing a ton of talent! First Wale signing to Rick Ross and MMG and now my man Phil Ade is quickly making a strong name for himself. These 3 jawnts just confirm Phil is on his way to catching that mainstream bug.

Just spotted this new vid from Shawn Chrys off his latest "IWG 3" mixtape. I think its time I pursue a career as a video casting call agent. Yeah, casting attractive women for music videos seems like a good career choice. haha.
Ahh yes, the good 'ol days. Im posting this track for several reasons. One; its been too long since I dropped a throw back track. The rest is left up to explanation.
As I was riding home from work the other day I got tired of listening to the same 3 songs over and over on the radio (Kelly Rowland "Motivation", Cee-Lo "Forget You" and Lil Wayne "John") so I decided to flip thru my CD book and try something new. That's when I came upon Lupe's first album "Food & Liquor." Its been a long long time since I listened to this project and as soon as I started playing it I suddenly started thinking about his latest project "Lasers" and then about his second project "The Cool" (backwards, yes. but thats how my brain works). That's when I began stack ranking these 3 albums.
Its amazing what you begin to appreciate when you haven't had it in your life for some time. Lupe's progression from "Food & Liquor" to "The Cool" was amazing. He went from mainstream sensation to an album with context and was all his own. Then came "Lasers." If you listen to the previous two records and then "Lasers" you can tell dude did not have ANY creative control. Dont get me wrong, "Lasers" isnt bad but you can tell it was random tracks thrown together and called an album.
Back to this post. Lupe and Jay had a moment on this track. From the production to the lyrics this track is something that makes me want to hear another collab between the two. Doubt it would happen but lets all remember what was once history in the making.

J. Cole let this gem go just the other day. Now I ask the million dollar question; when the hell is dude going to release an album?!? I mean come on Hov, even Big Sean is dropping a major label debut. I think its time Cole deliver a full length project to the masses. Until then I guess we have to take what we can get. Even if they come with Disney titles.

ACS shares some new visuals that deliver a fun, light hearted feel we can all relate to. I for one have never met a "hippie girl" but if I did I would hope she would be this cool and carefree. That is until my wife would catch me hanging with her and proceed to kick my ass. haha. All in all I love the feel of this video. Definitely something to lighten the mood on a Monday. Enjoy!
Man, it feels like forever since I heard a new track from RKSS. These 2 joints are off their project "Death of a Frat Rapper" which was supposed to drop on 4/20. I guess they forgot to do a lot things that day like most of us. haha. No word yet on a new release date but this should hold you over until then.

My inbox is just flowing with goodies today! Best part about that is the fact I have the day off and I can post everything as soon as I get it. Worst part about that is its a nice day outside and Im glued to the computer. Ah well, gotta take the good with the bad. Back to the goodies. This latest video comes from my big homie E Major and several other B-more artists. According to USM, this track is off Rome Cee's upcoming release, The Extra Mile, presented by Under Sound Music.
Its Maybach Monday and to celebrate the release of MMG's new album Self Made, the newest signee drops off this freebie. Production courtesy of Rashad.

Sometimes I swear there's a evil little troll living in my computer messing with the wires to slow things down and piss me off on purpose. Either that or I just need a new computer. Its more likely the later but I figure it would be cheaper just to beat up a little troll and speed things up. haha. Now that my system is up and running I can drop off this new track from Smokey Robotic for your listening pleasure. If you're familiar with these dudes than you know the kind of creativity to expect from them. If you're not up on them yet, stop being a jerk and get with it. Sheesh.
Download: Smokey Robotic - "Unbuttoned" / Alt Link
Its Wiz Khalifa, Neako and Chevy Wood and they're rapping about weed over Waka Flocka's "Grove St. Party." The track is dope but theres not much more to say about it. haha. Download now or forever hold your weed.

How late am I with this one? Oh well, fu*k it. If you're not already up on Wax he's a Maryland MC (which is where I be from) who signed his major label deal with Def Jam a few months ago. Which is about how old this mixtape is but I forgot about. Why am I throwing it up if its dated a few months you ask? Well for one: because I can, and two: because I want to. Anymore dumb questions? Didnt think so, now head on over to his DJ Booth page if you havent done so and snatch up this jawnt.

Now I usually don't take a big risks on random projects people send. Mainly because I get hundreds of e-mails a day and I don't have the time or attention span to listen to all (or most) of them. But every now and then I will open of these e-mails (both old and new) and if I get the right feel Ill give it a chance. This new mixtape of Jewish rapper Sneakas is one of those chances I decided going to take.
I got this project about 2 months ago (sorry bro, but like I said I'm A.D.D. like a mofo) and as I was cleaning out my inbox I decided to give it a listen. The cover art was well put together and the download information didn't involve hiring Indiana Jones to help me figure out where to find it. Before I take the leap on any mixtape and post it on the site (or download at all), I need a little preview. My only complaint is there was no link to preview the project which did put a little work on my part to find one. After finding it (pretty easily thanks to the good folks @ GOOGLE and their wonderful search engine) I previewed a few tracks and was sold. Dude has a ill flow, dope beat selection and he's actually rapping about something in his versus. All in All I say this one is worth a spot on your iPod...or Zune for the lonely few.

About to go a few rounds of "Connect Four" with my son and lose like I always do. haha. Before I jet, heres a new set of visuals from The Illz from the In Between Video Series.
If you're reading this then that means the world didn't end...or it did and you weren't chosen to joint the righteous. haha. Of course the world wasn't going to the end today stupid!!! Now get out of your bomb shelter and peep some dope new SBTRKT featuring Drizzy Drake and my secret crush, Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon. On a side note, Did anyone seriously think shit was about to pop off on planet earth today? If so, don't be shy and share your stupidity in the c-section.

Too many people to feature in one pic so heres an image of a huge stack of money.
My wife hates this track. I mean like HATES it! haha. Me on the other hand, I find it quite catchy. I have absolutely no clue what YC is saying half the time but thats what makes it fun. Now we have a remix featuring a zillion other rappers. What more can you ask for!

FKi recently released this video for the track "SmashMouth" which is a ode to every single human who parties too hard (or just enough) on the weekend. Yep, Im sure we all relate to this one. I know I can. haha. Want the .MP3? Download their mixtape Zoolandish.
Damn, its been a minute since I got a new Boognights track delivered to my inbox. Im not sure where he's been in the last uhhh....year, but Im glad to hear hes back on the grind. Speaking of on the grind, theres a trio of door to door salesmen currently prowling my court and I know one of them is about to knock on my door. I think Ill just keep blogging and drinking my beer and pretend I dont hear them. haha. Hey, its not my fault they signed up to get rejected on Saturdays.

2, thats right count 'em, 2 new joints from Big Sean produced by none other than No I.D. Sean and No I.D. seem to be building a Drake x 40 relationship. Hey if it works dont switch up the formula. You might recall hearing "I Don't Think They Want It" before. It leaked a few months ago in its unfinished state but this is the completed version. Finally Famous: The Album drops June 21st. Any predictions on 1st week sales?

Its early as shit and Im awake. Not sure why Im up but I might as well squeeze in some blogging while the rest of the homestead is sleep. Lets kick start this lovely Saturday morning with some new Drizzy produced by his counterpart "40." Word is this is the intro for his 2nd album "Take Care." Looks like dude is coming back strong for 2011 to make a few more millions. I aint mad.

After two dope leaks, Badio is back with another kick ass mixtape. Even tho Badio didn't send it directly to me and I had to spot it on another site, this mixtape is still pretty ill and I give it SXO approval (no hard feelings homie. Just don't let it happen again. haha) 18 tracks you'll rock from beginning to end with features from Saku The Original, Nate Fox, Jay Freshkicks, Joe Pauz and more. Can I just say that I love the cover art to this shit. Classic.

Im about a good 4 weeks late with posting this project from Young Vin (My bad Phil). Vin is, what Im assuming, the younger brother of SXO fam and Rich Kids Club founder Philip Nicholas. Philip Banks (as I like to call him) hit me up a while back to check out his brothers music and while I posted a few tracks I completely forgot to post up the debut mixtape. How does the mixtape sound you ask? 18 tracks of original new shit would be my answer. Also check out the visuals for Vin's "Moment 4 Life" freestyle after the jump.

New music from B-more's own Bossman? Cant be mad at that. Make sure you check out his latest project Dream B.I.G. and look out for his upcoming mixtape Who The F&*k is Bossman? Now Im off to go play Connect Four with my son. Not sure why because the little shit always beats me. haha.

Pusha T is back with new visuals from his recent Fear Of GOD mixtape. Now when will dude stop talking that "white" sh*t? I hate drugs but Im so bored with Pusha and coke that I wouldn't mind if he rapped about any other drug on the planet just to switch things up. Like Latisse or Xanax or Tylenol or Motrin, really anything besides coke.
MICKEY FACTZ - "FEARLESS" X "GENOCIDE" X "ENOUGH" X "BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE" X "IN SEARCH OF" X "TODAY IS TOMORROW" FEAT. TALWST
So much can be said and not be said of Mickey Factz. I feel like this dude came out strong early on with tracks featuring The Cool Kids and hard hitting production from GFCNY producer Precize and then things went...well, a little dry. His music was a little lack luster and Precize seemed to be missing from the picture. Then Mickey dropped a few "Black Tearz" versus and things seemed to be on the up and up again. Only problem was he went quite on the solo tip for another few months. Then he drops a mixtape out of nowhere and announces hes releasing several "conscious" tracks for the month of May (wtf, wheres the consistency?). I honestly have no clue what direction this dude is going in. So why do I post 6 new Mickey tracks at once you ask? Because I feel dude has talent and needs to stay on the radar until he finds himself. I know this is rough game and hopefully Mick will return to his "Heaven's Fallout" days. "GFC the team, and posers cant stop it!"
Update: I just spotted over at the GFCNY site that Precize now goes by his birth name Alejandro Chal which is the name credited for the production of "Today Is Tomorrow." Guess that means these 2 are still making music together which is awesome to know.

PFOP and MoShadee are back at it. Grove Street available now!
Ok, so I'm a little late on The Weeknd phenomenon. I just listed to House of Balloons about a week ago and since then Ive been steadily waiting to hear more of The Weeknd's music. Luckily I just spotted this new video for the track "What You Need." Not sure if this is an official video or not but it involves some girl on girl kissing which is worth watching in my book. haha. Check it out and make sure you download House of Balloons if you're late like me.
I love the fact that the internet has allowed so many artists and producers alike to experiement and make great music even better. Case in point, producer R3K takes Kid Cudi's verse from "Symphonies" combined with Florence and the Machine's "Cosmic Love" and creates magic. Remixes like this is why I love doing what I do and sharing the music with you. Did that rhyme? Yeah, yeah I guess it did. haha. Enjoy!

I mentioned this mixtape in my last Airplane Boys post only to realize that I never posted the new project. Whoops. As an added bonus (and to make up for my tardiness) can check out another video below from the boys for their track "Escape" which is also featured on the mixtape.
Download: The Airplane Boys - "Where've You Been" Mixtape
I'll never forget the first Airplane Boys track I posted. These guys were still new on the scene and no one but your boy here at SXO had them on the radar. Fast forward about 2 years later and these dudes are gaining some major noteriety from sites like 2dopeboyz all the way to the HypeBeast. Feels good to be on the forefront of hot shit. Well the Canadian duo is back with a set of visuals for a new track off their latest mixtape, Where’ve You Been. If this is the first time you're spotting these dudes, please do yourself a favor and listen to this track. You'll be a fan in no time.
LMFAO!!!! Click play and watch this "shit." hahaha
(Spotted @ Complex)
I swear every time this beat starts I cant help but put on a hood grimace and knod my head. Yeah so what Polow Da Don did a Lex Luger rip off. This sh*t still knocks hard! To add to the dopeness we finally get a set of visuals. Like the track, the video is dark which has the perfect feel to it. I dont really get why Ross is in a wheelchair w/ spinners in the video? Ahh well, Tha Carter IV drops June 21st.

I guess Drake didnt fall off the face of the earth. Its good to hear him on some new sh*t. So while you enjoy this awesomeness, Im off to go plant my ass on the couch and watch something OnDemand. Not really sure what Im going to watch but after a long ass work week Im willing to watch a

Theophilus London is that dude. Straight up. If you're not a fan yet, make sure you check out this track and start filling your music catalogue with more of his music. Every track you listen to doesnt need to be produced by Lex Luger. While you're at it, make sure you look out for his major label debut Timez Are Weird These Days which drops July 19th.
Download: Theophilus London - "Last Name London" / Limelinx
One of this Springs hardest tracks finally gets the visual treatment. Now can somebody tell me why the hell Birdman needed to be in this video? All hes doing is rubbing his hands together like he cant wait to eat the camera man. Word of advice Ace on the next Lil Wayne collab; how about more gratuitous T&A shots and less Birdman. In fact dont even invite him to the video shoot at all.
Moving on into more recent tracks, heres a new joint from a slightly newcomer on the scene. Boldy James is quickly making a name for himself and with tracks like "Jimbo" produced by none other than Chuck Inglish, it wont be hard for dude to ascend quickly. Look out for Boldy's new mixtape Trapper’s Alley: Pros And Cons coming soon. (Spotted @ IllRoots)
Dammit, I have got to start checking my e-mail more often. Heres one more project that you might find a few weeks late here on SUPERXOFFICIAL. But if I find it note worthy, its better late than never. Plus there may be a few of you who have yet to scoop this up. Featuring guest appearances from Stat Quo, Roscoe Dash, Kevin Rudolf, Pharrell, !llmind and more.
You guys remember A Cool Stick right? If you dont remember these guys or you have yet to be a fan, click here and (re)familiarize yourself. Their latest project (which actually dropped about a month ago. Sorry for the lateness guys) takes instrumentals from classic Hip-Hop producers like Pete Rock, J. Dilla, Ski Beatz, MF Doom and gives them A Cool Stick feel.

Long time SUPERXOFFICIAL affiliate, Badio, is working on his new project #WHATSBADIO which is set to drop on 5/19/2011. In preparation for the new release Badio dropped this new track via his Twitter for all of us to enjoy. Aside from the fact that this track is dope as hell, I don't think there's a dude out there who can say that he doesn't enjoy a good motorboat from time to time. Also, is it just me or are the chick in the denim vest tits spread wide the f*ck apart? Its like one is on East coast time and the other is West coast? haha. But never mind that and download the track below.

Wale and those Maybach Boys equal something serious. I cant wait for dudes Sophomore album. I think Rozay backing him will put things over the top. At least I hope so. haha. .Mp3 download link below for those that want the track on blast in the whip.

New visuals from iLLA for "Cranberry Vodka" off the Van Gogh mixtape.
This movie is progressively looking better and better. I still have no clue why Megan Fox would walk away from a multi-billion dollar industry. Was it because of this? GOD, I hope not. Anyway, looks like they didn't have any trouble finding a replacement. Still not clear on the plot of the new film but I'm sure most of you, like myself, check out the subsequent Transformer installments for the graphics and not the thought provoking story line. "Transformers: Dark Of The Moon" in theaters 7/1/2011.
iLLA hit me with this mixtape a few days ago (ahem...weeks....ahem) and I didnt have a chance to post it up. As I was cleaning out my inbox I came across the project and figured it was better late than never to share it with my SUPERXOFFICIAL fam. Featuring appearances from Tone Trump, Willis Brook, TJ Hooker, and Phoenix, with production by Skyscrapers, Stewie Vuiton, Lil’ K, The Bang Brothers and more.
