Kid Cudi is hands down one of my favorite artists. The fact that he had the guts to do something different and create his own lane is something to appreciate. Hate it or love it Cudders new venture with Dot Da Genius is on it's way. Check out the latest from the alternative rock duo know as WZRD. Hit the jump for the mastered version of Brake.

Milwaukee super duo The Cranberry Show has been building up the anticipation of their up coming project Paranormal Karaoke for the past few months now. The wait is almost over. Tomorrow TCS fans will finally get there hands on one of the illest projects I've heard in a while. Here's a recap of what has been leaked so far from the Paranormal Karaoke project. Hit the jump...
We just got our hands on the title track to MaG's upcoming Mick Boogie hosted LP. This joint has sort of a funk sound that will make you move to the beat without a doubt. MaG stresses the fact that life is what you make it, so go get it. True Story...
Leaks on Leaks on Leaks.... Devine Carama just dropped off some of that kangol music... you know that groovy shit. This joint is the first single off of his up coming project Heart Of A Lion which is set to drop 3-23-12.

Kid Sister has a little bro... he's one half of Flosstradamus. In other words this joint is a family affair. This fam knows how to get loose and juke.
Pigeons and Planes just featured another E Dubble joint! This one is produced by Villain, AKA Billy Martin of the pop-punk group Good Charlotte. Some wobble bass and distorted drums are way cooler than mohawks and emo lyrics. This makes for a pretty creepy collabo. Enjoy.
Nonstop is the only Dubstep dancer to ever make it on the Ellen DeGeneres show, kinda like a big deal... As awkward as daytime talk shows can be Dubstep and suburban moms make it waaaay stranger. Add in the fact that Nonstop looks like that crack head that asks you for spare change while sporting fresh new kicks and you have the strangest T.V. in recent history.
I'll start by saying that Billy Gram knows how to scare a mug like me. With his latest visual Gram chose to mix two elements that freak me the fuck out; One, the Juggalo face paint that he and his homies rock and two, American wrestling (fake wrestling). This video screams trailer park while the track reps the hood.... I'm confused... and still a little scared. Hulkamaniac dropping soon.
Guess who's back?!... on the wagon. or is it off? I always forget which is which. Regardless, the average height emcee with above average skills is back to sippin the brown. Drink or no drink the man spits fire. Peep Royce's recent show at the Middle East Club in Boston where he snapped as usual.
ThroatChopU is back with his Hip-Hop Breakfast mix. Today he decided to have two of his twitter followers create the mix. Let's get this week started!!
A Side - @MiSS1SPECiAL
01. Yuna - Live Your Life
02. U-N-I feat. Miguel - Lately
03. Quelle - The Loop
04. C Plus & DJ Flow feat. JoEL & Ant Chedda - The Night

The Cranberry Show has teamed up with The Smash Boiz to bring you their spin on Awolnation's Sail. This is the second leak from their upcoming project Paranormal Karaoke which is due out 2.1.12 via djbooth.net and donutsandmilk.com.
DJ Premier somehow unearthed a ten minute version of Big L and Jay-Z's freestyle over Milk Bone's "Keep It Real (Freddie Gibb's "Ghetto"). The legendary session went down on Feb 23 '95 in Strech and Bobbito studios. This is probably one of the most treasured tapes in hip hop history featuring two of the greatest if not THE greatest MC's to hold a mic.

The young Chi-Town spitter DK, isn't even old enough to legally drink yet, that's not stopping from getting spaced out though. Peep first hand how him and his crew get down on a night like tonight. If you feel like it join in on the fun. Off the Shy State of Mind Mixtape cop it HERE.
P3 repper Antwan Davis links with beat creator Wes Manchild to bring us a new project. The concept of this tape is based off the soul-stress Anita Baker's samplings. Davis provides the righteous flow and the rest is history. For the track list and download shoot the J.
64barmusic started in 2009 when the friends on the Ninja Tune forum got together to create homemade mixes of their own music. Contributors were only given two rules. Make the song 64 bars long, and at an agreed tempo. After that, they were told to get creative. Anything goes. The idea is to see just how many grooves / angles / styles can be found at a set tempo. And it seems there are lots. 'BOUNDARIES: 20 Works From The 64 Bar Challenge' available now as a digital download at the Ninjashop.
If you are a fan of the site then you probably know that we are fans of Boston MC, Charmingly Ghetto. This is the latest installment from the east coast wordsmith. I'm not sure if this is going to be featured on a specific project, but I do know it's dope as hell, so get familiar and stop snitchin!!

Grey Goose Rising Icons takes us on an inside look at the life of Big Sean. Hit the jump for part 2 and 3.
Ok... I know this video may throw a lot of people off, but the fact that Pedro is playing Three Stacks is genius.
The illest thing about Mazon's new mixtape is that his artistic ability really bleeds through from track to track. Anyone can hit the studio and lay average vocals over sub par beats and call it a mixtape. It happens all the time. The reality is it takes a true artist to be able to pull everything together and create something special. Mazon did just that. Hit the jump to stream...
I'm usually not a big fan of weed rap. I mean seriously... how many ways can you really talk about a plant. When I first saw the title of Valley High's track Reef Releaf I had already pegged it as "typical". Then I hit play and the beat dropped. To my surprise it was anything but "typical". Dope beat, Dope verses, Dope video. Hit play...

Young producer / label head Cypria has released his latest project from across the pond. Lunatick Records presents the first volume of the Infinite Loop series. Soulful brass and key heavy tunes for you to rock out to all day.

The L.A. collective SomeWhere Else just hit us with this super creative track Bunkers. It's awesome to get a break from the norm and listen to artists that are pushing the envelope. Hit the jump for DL link.
Dehydrated alcoholic headache shakes are a problem, unless your outta body, in which case you won't feel shit. What's the best way to get outta body? Well you could have your closest freind pull the old choke slam... but that just makes things worse in the end. Undergoing psychedelic transportation is the most effective option for getting outta body. For most Shaman and one awesome UFC announcer, next level transportation is common practice... Lately for The gruesome twosome it's a daily operation. Now you know, if your gonna DMT your way to the ether you better have a harness to hold you down and remind you that your still terrestrial, fool. NASTROVIA.
Cop Vodka & Ayahuasca HERE
The same ATL production team responsible for Charmingly Ghetto's Overstanding EP, Introspective Minds, drop a free ep on the strength of having beast's blood. Mostly jazz infused instrumentals, the 8 track ep plays through like a Dj Logic & Medeski Martin and Wood live show, not just beats thrown together for the sake of releasing a project. Hit the jump...
01. Etta James - I'd Rather Go Blind (Live)
02. Emcee Jermaine - Stereo-Typical
03. Kooley High - Regular Shit
04. Sundown x Chuuwee - They Better Run
05. ScienZe x JohnNY U. - Mother Nature's Daughter
06. Lyriciss - Big Gold Chain
07. Young Sin x e.d.g.e. - Mathematics
08. Chels feat. Ace Boogie - The Lesson

Lyriciss is back with the The Balance EP: Money. This is the second EP of a four part series. You can expect the third installation of The Balance EP series titled Heart coming real soon. Hit the jump for the track list. S/O to DjBooth.
Westcoast meets the East and pow wow over some Cali Kush. Statik's latest joint is off of his next project titled Stereotype . If ya toke now would be a good time.
Sorta like celestial sludge getting electrified to life by the atmosphere. Then out of that same amino sludge getting a few bizzare bi-peddalers that enjoy getting busy through space time. They call themselves Stones Throw Records and their newest recruit goes by Homeboy Sandman. The Homeboy city dwellar likes to drop syncopated verses over Automated basslines. They've all just created his latest project... Subject: Matter. Download it HERE. For the EP artwork and shoot the J.

From Stalley's Blog :
As a warm-up for his new release “Savage Journey to the American Dream”, Stalley offers a series of
songs called “Songs by Me, Stalley”. The first is “City of 30,000 Wolves”, a tribute to Stalley’s
hometown of Massillon, Ohio over DJ Toomp production with DJ Khaled on the intro. Savage
Journey to the American Dream is coming soon! Follow @Stalley and @Bluecollargang.
Yonas is becoming quite the indie flipper. First he took the famous "Pumped up Kicks" joint and flipped it into energized hip hop... Now he's giving the flap jack treatment to M83's "Midnight City". As far as indie flippers go Yonas stands along side STS as one of the best.
First Freddie Gibbs drops "Ghetto" and now Logic also barrows Miilkbone's "Keep It Real" beat to drop his title track off the Young Sinatra Mixtape. Logic is another example that talent and the internet alone can generate enough buzz to "make it". Labels are nice but slowly becoming more and more obsolete.
In the future, when Yakuza robots take over the the Pacific Northwest, they will stumble upon the Blue Scholars extensive catalog of music. The majority of the music will be over the robots processing ability as they will not understand the ancient Mp3 language. The information will be a coded jumble of 1's and 0's, except for this one track. The Seijun Suzuki track will ignite a musical revolution within the community of asian robots and Hip Hop will live again. This time the birth of future Hip Hop will be on the West Coast and "doing the robot" will take on an entirely new meaning.
After three years of hard work in the studio Sol let's loose the Yours Truly LP. The time and effort that Sol put into this really shines through the speakers. Sol decided not to create the typical hip hop sound, but rather he gives the people musicality. Honestly a really dope album from beginning to end. Hit the link to download and hit the jump to stream.
Philly's Gilbere Forte was not playing when he decided to put this project together. Strictly business... He teamed up with Terry Urban and DjBooth.net on the release. He also brought out some juggernaut MC's for the festivities. I linked a couple examples of what I'm talking about.
A lot of artists use the term "highly anticipated" very loosely. A hypothetical example would be reading about "lil T-Bone" from Idaho who "finally" dropped his "highly anticipated" mixtape titled "money over bitches". Of course the album cover is an airbrushed photo of him holding stacks of $1 bills all "G'd" out in front of some potato farm. You know... some gangster Idaho type shit. The question I have is how "highly anticipated" can it be when "lil T-Bone" has 54 facebook fans and 82 followers on twitter with most of them seemingly family members? I mean don't get me wrong. I appreciate the hustle and grind from "lil T-Bone" 100%, but are people really waiting to hear his shit? The point being that "highly anticipated" is a term that means that the majority of the entire population are in anticipation. With that being said, I feel confident letting you know that Rockie Fresh's highly anticipated project Driving 88 has just hit the scene. I've personally been waiting for this to drop since I first heard about the project. Rockie has mos def been paying his dues and it's really working in his favor these days.
The almighty Chip Tha Ripp just dropped his highly anticipated mixtape Tell Ya Friends. Chip called on some All-Stars to join him on the project. Kid Cudi, Wale, Cyhi Da Prynce, and Far East Movement to name a few. Check it out and let us know what you think...
"Trainwreck is a saga of New York City bars, a story of people too in love with themselves to see past the whiskey glasses. I feel the sounds of the beat replicate the darkness and intensity of that yearning party night, when you're looking in a girls eyes and don't see anything there, when you're walkin in the cold spinning drunk, when you wake up wondering why you're life is the way it is." - Silver Medallion
Virgina's Marcky Goldchain links up with Phil Ade for his latest release titled Don't Sleep. This is a track off Marcky's up coming mixtape Vice City Life. If you're not aware of this Marcky you might want to put him on your radar. The kid is dope.

The Milwaukee duo, The Cranberry Show, have been creating quite a buzz the past few months due to the anticipation of their new album Paranormal Karaoke. The project is set to drop 2.1.12 via DjBooth.net and donutsandmilk.com. All I can say is expect the unexpected when it comes out. It's going to blow your mind. This is the first leak off the project titled Traffic Lights. Get familiar...

StarSlinger blesses us with some Saturday night pregame action. So tonight while you catch a fire in beer pong then go to high five your best broseph and ruin your shirt before the shirt. Play this mixtape and at least do it in style.
The grime riddled duo is back blessing us with some filth flarn filth. Now we are encouraged to look through the eyes of a drunk Shaman at a world begging for change.
