DJ Khaled – Fed Up ft. Usher, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross & Drake + 50 Cent – Pshyco ft. Eminem (Prod. By Dr. Dre) X So Disrespectful (Prod. By Tha Bizness)
In typical Khaled fashion he load this one up with any rapper that is relevant. I like this line up. DRIZZY!
This is the first single of Khaled’s upcoming album titled Victory.
I’m not the worlds biggest 50 fan but I’ll acknowledge he is a very successful MC. Dope production from Dr. Dre and Tha Bizness.
These are both off 50’s upcoming album Before I Self Destruct which leaked today. This one hurts – his album wasn’t supposed to drop till November 23th. Ah well ha!
LMAO at posting 50 and Khaled/Ross tracks in the same post!
shouts to illRoots.
Mike Posner drops his highly anticpated sophmore mixtape a few days early for everyone to enjoy. Presented by Clinton Sparks & DJ Benzi you can clearly see by the tracklist that this is something special. Also Posner was featured on Last Call With Caron Daly last night – I included the interview and performance at the bottom.
I will be bumping this all weekend – I can guarantee that!
Look out for the 3rd episode of Posner’s web series to drop later on tonight.
Big shout out to everyone over in the Mike Posner camp. You guys did it again!

Extra: Young Money – Lets Go Crazy
As I fast forwarded through the BET Hip-Hop Awards last night these cyphers were easily the highlights of the night.
Up top we have Mos Def, Black Thought and Eminem. Ridiculous. I got goosebumps watching all three of these guys spit.
Below we have KRS-One, Wale, Nipsey Hussle and Gsan. Further down Nicki Minaj, Joe Budden (fuckin’ kills it), Buckshot and Crown Royyal.
The one and only DJ Premier on the 1s & 2s.
This is hip-hop people.
Lupe does it again. One of the best in the game. We Are Lasers coming sometime soon?
We can only assume this is off Rhymefest often delayed album El Che. Regardless it’s nice to hear from the Chicago MC.
shouts to MWB.
Some amazing live footage of Brother Ali performing “The Truth” over in Paris a month or so ago. You can catch the whole set here. Crazy how the Rhymesayer’s crew has such a following in Europe. Not that I blame them!
P.O.S. talks all his Halloween memories on MTV. Such a classy dude.
Shouts to P.O.S.!
The homie Trey Lane (Sioux Falls, SD) shows how it’s done with this track he just sent to my inbox. Trey recruits Rhymesayer Toki Wright for a real dope verse. Dope to see Toki on a guest verse.
Trey sent another track to my inbox but I haven’t seen him leak it on the net yet. I’ll hold off for now. Trey gave me the go ahead!
Trey’s album All Things Considered is set to be released December 8th.
Shouts Trey and Flame On Ent.
More exclusive video footage of Brother Ali, Evidence, BK One and Toki Wright on Fresh Air Tour. For complete tour info head over to the Fresh Air Tour schedule:
Damn – looks like a party! Can’t wait for the Chicago stop.

and Mac Lethal shred’s Run This Town too…good lord. Love Potion 5 (Deluxe Edition) available now.

This got cut from Wale’s upcoming album Attention: Deficit so it has since been released. Look for Wale’s album dropping November 10th.
Bobby Ray hasn’t fed the streets with any material in awhile…here is fresh new tune.
Make sure you check this one out – my homie Tyler over introduced me to rapper/producer Imperfekt who resides from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I played a few tracks on my radio show last night and got a very positive response. Make sure you check this fella out! This is just a 6 track EP but still worth it – also his RJD2 freestyle at the end is dope too.
Check out the full article on Imperfekt over at aboveGround Magazine.
I feel like the victim of an inside joke watching this thing. Slug, Murs and Aesop goofin’ around for part 2 of their interview series.
Felt 3 drops November 17th. Pre-order now at Fifth Element.
Part 1 can be viewed here.
If Wayne keeps this type of stuff up people won’t have shit to say. This combined with what I dropped earlier this week? No Ceilings mixtape drops on Friday!
Rev Run’s 14 year old son dropped this? This is way to fresh for a 14 year old. I guess the little guy is working on a mixtape as well. Dope shit – mogul in the making.
Timbaland – Say Something (Ft. Drake) + Gift Of Gab – Dreamin’ Ft. Del Tha Funkee Homosapien & Brother Ali
An unfinished version of this track his the net last week – here is the mastered version. Off Timba’s Shock Value 2.
One of half of Bay area hip-hop duo Blackalicious grabs Del and Brother Ali for his upcoming solo effort titled Escape 2 Mars which is set to drop November 3rd.
My man Toki Wright drops the first video of his incredibly dope album A Different Mirror that dropped this summer. Some dope cameos for those who know the Twin Cities hip hop scene.
Nice concept, beautifully filmed, excellent video for an excellent song. Big ups!
Don’t forget Toki is on the Fresh Air Tour right now with Brother Ali & Evidence. I’ll be at Chicago – y’all know that.
11.18 – Chicago, IL – Metro
11.19 – Madison, WI – Barrymore Theatre
11.20 – Minneapolis, MN – First Avenue

Clipse drop another off their upcoming album Till The Casket Drops – which actually drops December 8th. I obviously dig the track – the horns sound familiar. Cam’ron on a Clipse joint? Classic.

New Unknown Prophets! The group hasn’t dropped an album since 2006. You can tell because this is some of the best work the trio consisting of Big Jess, Mad Son and Willy Lose have released. With assistance from rapper Grieves, “Hate Face” is the first leak of the UP’s upcoming album Le System D which drops December 1st.
Twin Cities whats good?
Shouts to Jess and 2dopeboyz for the link.
and since Shake uploaded it….
This Long Island duo which consists of rapper Steven Witz and producer Obey City just dropped their sophmore mixtape titled Making Waves. Real dope smooth sound that I think you will like.
The duo also has a EP titled Bagels and Beats available on iTunes.
Tracklist after the jump.
The mixtape, presented by LRG in association with Clinton Sparks and DJ Benzi, drops October 29th on iTunes for free. Featuring Big Sean, Wale, Kid Cudi, 30H3, GLC, XV, Freddie Gibbs, Pill, Saigon and more, One Foot Out The Door promises to top A Matter of Tim.
Easily one of my most anticipated mixtapes right now. Can’t wait to hear this baby – the guest features look dope as well.
Below you can check some out some footage of Mike making his “Kiss Me Thru The Phone Remix.”

Freeway updates all the fans about what projects are dropping when. Freeway’s album with Jake-One titled The Stimulus Package is dropping January 19th on Rhymesayers.
In celebration of my first CMJ showcase, presented with Puma and NUE Agency, I thought it’d be fitting to have my man DJ Benzi put together a mixtape featuring Elitaste artists (Wale, Mike Posner, Shawn Chrystopher, PRGz, Frontrunner) as well as everyone on the bill for CMJ. Featuring new, old and exclusive tracks from Mike Posner, Wale, Camp Lo, Theophilus London and more, this mixtape will not only get you hype for the showcase, but will carry you through a cold winter. Enjoy!
Well this has a lot of dope stuff on it. A lot of unreleased stuff as well as previously released stuff that is most definitely worth checking out….and most importantly Wale hops on Mike Posner’s “Drug Dealer Girl.” I could see Wale & Pharrell joint becoming a hit too.
Thank god. The real Weezy F. Baby is back. Off his highly anticipated No Ceilings mixtape – which is sure to bring some credibility back to Wayne. Yup – he lost some in my book with all that Rebirth garbage.
I’m sure you can guess the beat selection based off the song titles.
Full mixtape drops on Halloweezy.
On a side note – Wayne could face a year in jail for weapon possession charges in New York. Damn – read more here.
When I immediately looked at this track I figured it was sure to be a hit in the making. Not so much – but a new Jay verse is always nice. I hate slamming Timbaland but I haven’t heard any fire from him lately…just saying.
Shock Value 2 drops Nov. 23rd.
Drake – Forever (Chicago RMX) ft. S-Preme, LA, & Bullet + The Cool Kids & Hey Champ – (We Are) Champions
3 of Chicago’s rising stars come together to showcase the talent of The Lake City. All three of these guys kill it – here is a little sample:
“Runnin’ around grabbin’ coins like I’m on the bonus level,
I’m in the game, tryin’ to play, make my way to owner level,
I’m Sears Tower n****, I am Hancock,
And watch how Preme is rappin’, I’m a beast like I’m The Sandlot”
“Told ‘em I’m a star,
Like I’m Kareem Abdul-Jabbar,
Before LA got to LA, LA wasn’t a star
Lew Alcindor, every beat I injure,
Smash every track, ain’t no need for a censor,
Mr. Clean mouth, no grill, no dentures,
Extra, (When I’m) Winterfresh, spit
Orbiting your mentals!”
“That’s why my whole career growin’ bright,
Paid tuition, now show money, you doin’ open mics,
And my flow is tight, all I do is drop bombs,
Better than all of you rappers and I’m makin’ pop songs”
You can find both S-Preme and LA on the recently released March of Time Mixtape Presented by Pwelbs.com & The Airtime Collection. CHICAGO STAND UP!
Download it here: Pwelbs.com & The Airtime Colelction Present: The March of Time (Mixtape)

Indie group Hey Champ remixes a joint off The Cool Kid’s latest mixtape all apart of an upcoming DubFrequency remix project. Pretty fresh!
The homie Q always killin it. Dope interiew with Chicago MC Skooda Chose who recentley dropped the video for his track “Loungin’” which features Mickey Rocks (of The Cool Kids) and Twista. The track is an absolute banger and the video is one of the best I’ve seen in a minute. Check out the “Loungin’” video below.
