Big K.R.I.T. - ReturnOf4Eva [Mixtape]

I know I'm late, but I like to listen to these things before I post them. I'm just that guy I guess. So now I'm getting through it and I must say that I like K.R.I.T.'s state of mind and his style and his rhymes. Just good all around. A little change of pace of what a lot of Southern music I've been hearing. I guess only in Mississippi got something in the water to make special rappers like this guy. But, before I ramble on, listen to ReturnOf4Eva and make your own convictions.

Sade Tour 2011 with John Legend in Cleveland

I just heard about this. This is pretty great. I heard on the radio from The Alan Cox Show: "[If you can't get laid at a Sade concert.....]", then he went on to something along the lines that you can't get laid at all or something rather. Either way, these are two great names, and I'm sure you'll want to see it. Below is where you can view some tickets for the show in Quicken Loan Arena and links to other shows and tickets.

Jhené Aiko Speaks On .sailing soul(s)., The Future, Saving the world, & more

So, since I've been addicted to Sailing Soul(s) these past few weeks, I'm gonna hope on anything she's a part of. I haven't been disappointed yet. Good stuff!!!

And to narrow that down, what’s one main message you want people to tune into?
Definitely the whole “sailing souls” thing. A lot of people are still confused about what that means, and it just means to stay true to yourself and go with what you feel. Feeling are really the only thing that is real. I kinda want to convey the message to just be yourself. Don’t ever lose yourself for whatever reason—because you want to make more money, because you want to be prettier or whatever. I’m not a slave to anyone; I’m sailing my soul instead of selling it.

Lil Wayne - If I Die Today feat. Rick Ross [Prod. Polow Da Don]

Everyone who's a Rozay fan should recognize this song. I mean, it's been made already. And on a record no less. Either way, I kind of like it so here it is!

John West - Lovely feat. Pusha T

What luck we have with getting two Johns in one day. And the both sing! This guy may look like Robin Thicke, but the voice...not so much. Great though. For more about him go look at the place I lifted the file from, here

Cee-Lo Green - Fool For You feat. Melanie Fiona

This is such a great duet. Even though this is just a song for the radio/ single and not on the album (yet), I'm gonna bet that The Lady Killer is a great buy. The original song featured Phillip Baily of Earth Wind & Fire, which is also great. This is a great song, so listen up and enjoy!

XXL's 2011 Freshmen Class Cypher pt. 2 [Video]

Based gOD is a surprisingly good freestyler. Yelawolf got bars. Kendrick is just mean with it. Cyhi just knows what to do with a mic. All good! I would have posted the first one if it was good...

Jhene Aiko - sailing soul(s) (Album)

Y'all remember that Drake song leaked about a year ago called JULY with that girl no one (at least not me) knew about. Well, she's bringing some heat with a very good RnB album of her own. I'm listening right now and I think it's pretty good stuff, besides the features, which include the likes of Drake and Kanye West. So sit back and enjoy. (Not bad to look at either)

Pusha T - Raid feat. 50 Cent and Pharrell

50 and Pusha snapped on this song. This Neptune production is just so slick (as always). All good votes coming from me. This my favorite leak so far and that's saying a lot. Fear Of God dropping next week!

Dee Goodz - Floetic Justice Vol. 2: B.O.T.H. [Mixtape]

The Nashville native brings of up fire with this tape. Has some catchy tracks too. Overall pretty good. I'm wondering why, now looking at this years XXL Freshmen list for this year, why he wasn't on it. He's done as much if not more then some members of the list...I don't know. Just enjoy some good tunes

I was going through this drought for a few years because 50 Cent music wasn't as appealing to me as it used to be. That's all changed now.

Fly Guys: Dreary [Video]

The Fly Guys are a rap group out of LA and they are deadly serious about it. They have mixtapes and do shows and all that. As an added bonus they are funny as f*** and give us a show to watch about their journey that may be or not be 100% accurate. This is the last episode of their current season. In this episode it's a dance off and a track they made about the subject of the episode. Enjoy

Zion I & The Grouch - Rockit Man feat. Silk-E

Soooo....NEW RAPPER ALERT!!!!! Of course I don't know how long these guys have been doing this, but their new to me. I really, really like this song. Great stuff. It's from the Zion Crew's album Heroes In The Healing of a Nation which is available for pre-order HERE

Download - Rockit Man feat. Silk-E | Alt. Link

Pusha T - Lost In The World

This is largely like the song as it's mostly the beat and vocals in the background. It's one verse offered from Pusha with the Lost Poets ending the record like on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Not bad, but not mind blowing like "MY GOD". Fear Of God coming soon.
