Here's a super fat Neptunes-produced select. I never really listened to Noreaga's catalog but the features and production on this track caught my eye and I was happily rewarded for listening. The beat has the distinctive Carribbean-infused Neptunes sound that I've been addicted to since Clipse's Hell Hath No Fury.
The beats are addicting as fuck. The personality is godly. Make sure to spin "I'm Boomin I'm Bunkin", "Fresh Everyday", "Oh Fsho" and "Damn".

I love me some scuzz and Ski Beatz delivers just that on this new cut with DMV representative Tabi Bonney. The way Ski mixes this beat up commands attention from beginning to end and Tabi's stylistic groove-rap accompanies the arrangement perfectly. This track about juggling multiple bitches will be on Tabi's upcoming Summer Years project.

FUCK YES! Three of my favorite rappers in the game link up and go in on an absolute fat cut from top producer Chuck Inglish. This kind of collab makes my panties so wet. All three spit real nice... this is on Dom's From The Westside With Love II, available now on iTunes.

Many of you may see me as a detractor of the Odd Future movement, a resentful reactionary. Well this is wrong, and I'm proving it to you by posting this Earl Sweatshirt track that had me bumpin last night. Edit: but cotdamn that boy is ass-ugly.
I fuckin respect the selects on Harris Amil & The QN's recent unofficial compilation of Spitta tracks. You can stream here, but if you download, be sure to pick up "#JetsGo" and "She Don't Want A Man" seperately, or on iTunes, as DatPiff excludes them from the downloaded version.

Here's the second offering from The Cool Kids' debut album When Fish Ride Bicycles and yes, its goddamn good. Unfortunately the download hasn't surfaced on the net yet, but you can stream it at Pitchfork. Also, it will be available for purchase on iTunes tomorrow. Edit: here you, go.. the stream of all streams.
New Gangsta Gibbs tape dropping in July! It's bosting production from Alchemist, DJ Burn One, Big K.R.I.T. and Statik Selektah, along with guest appearances by Young Jeezy, Bun B, Juicy J and more..

The Game- Bottles And Rockin' J's (feat. Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, Fabolous & Lil Wayne) (prod. Lex Luger) + I'm On (feat. Mars)
Here's a Smoked Out Luger banger that assembles some of rap's finest. This shit is tagged up like a mufucka by DJ Khaled (one of the best to ever do it). Busta Rhymes employs his dope double time flow, Ross is swaggerlicious Ross, Fabolous is fatty and Lil Wayne makes you eat his dick. I've also included a new track produced by 1500 Or Nothin' that I'm slowly falling in love with regardless of the short autotune chorus.
Here's the video to my favorite Yelawolf track, "Pop The Trunk". The Alabama native is signed to Shady Records and is planning to drop his debut album, Radioactive, September 27th. Till then, just go download Trunk Muzik, his mixtape.

I think its kinda cool how the humble Big K.R.I.T. actually jumps on tracks with southern legends like UGK, Ludacris and David Banner, people he based his sound around and could've only dreamed of meeting (or making music) with a couple mixtapes ago. This track will appear on Pimp C's posthumous effort Still Pimpin'.
Here's an organ rumbler from the Black Hippy crew reps. This sounds like a Gucci or Lil B beat but Kendrick and Schoolboy both absolutely murder with out-of-this-world, left field flows.

Kanye getting on some childhood struggle ish over a typically Kanye sounding soul track. This is an interesting move away from the sonic range of MBDTF. EDIT: THIS IS NOT THE OFFICIAL VERSION. THIS IS THE OFFICIAL ACAPELLA WITH AN AMATEUR BEAT.

Here's a fatty track from LA emcee Bambu who's known for his lyrics' criticisms of the system based on his experiences both on the block and in the army. The song features Chace Infinite of Self Scientific and is from Bambu's 2010 EP Paper Cuts.

Young Jeezy dropped these two videos to help promote his new mixtape The Real Is Back. According to Jizzle's label, Thug Motivation: 103 will hit the shelves July 26th. "Nothin but dope and them hoes, nothin but dope and these bitches"
The Money Making Jam Boys are a collective set up by The Roots' emcee Black Thought. Black Thought, along with P.O.R.N., Dice Raw, STS, and Truck North dropped a mixtape called The Prestige, which you can cop at their website. Here's a video fro my favorite track from the tape.

Oh shit, here's a pretty ill song from debut artist Bing Cypher featuring XV, and I must say, this beat goes. No one seems to know who Bing Cypher is, and sorry dude, your twitpic was too ugly to post man. Anyway check it out, even if you fastforward to hear Vizzy. Edit: actually, don't. on second listen, I think I'm feelin Bing's verse.
One of my favorite selects that you are indeed required to respect. This Nas banger is from his highly-praised Lost Tapes project. The talks about releasing a second volume of the series have unfortunately been squashed and the idea scrapped. It's a damn shame, Dad!
Pulled Over By The Cops is possibly the fattiest supergroup to form in hip-hop in a long, long time. Freddie Gibbs, Chip Tha Ripper, The Cool Kids and mentor Bun B have decided to get together to put out this Blended Babies' produced track. We can only hope they'll drop a full-length project in the future.

Tity Boi: yes, it's an outrageous name..and no, he's not the most lyrically deft spitter... but 2 Chainz hits all the right southern sweet-spots especially over really good production, which is exactly what he gets on his most recent mixtape Codeine Cowboy (A 2 Chainz Collective). This one finds Lex Luger in semi-new territory, a beat absent of his famous build-up drops that has the young producer finding a really good sample and just bumping it until the end. Anyway, if you like listen to the whole tape, it's a surprisingly satisfying listen. Edit: I've embedded a link for the mixtape stream because I don't know if the hulkshare link is woiking.

Since that new tape, I've been going back into Jizzle's catalog and he's got a lot of solid releases. 2010's The Last Laugh is filled with tough gravelly tracks and is definitely a highlight. The mixtape features production from Shawty Redd (currently serving a murder bid) who is best known for ominous orhcestral and organ themed production that paved the way for game changer Lex Luger. Check out "Handle My Bizness. and if you like it grap the download link for The Last Laugh.

Speaking of psych-influenced stuff, rocker Kid Cudi drops his new collab with "Day N Nite" producer Dot Da Genius that finds the wizard heading in a new musical direction for 2011. Cudi keeps scuzzy distortion over his voice giving a lo-fi 60's underground feel. I think the Cudi heads'll really dig this track, but not too many others.
