Yonas

#1 - Yonas - Nobody Else

Though Yonas' last feature found him showcasing his Stupid Brilliance, the NYC buzzmaker's knack for dropping rhymes so dumb they're genius shouldn't overshadow the fact that, when he wants to be, he's just plain smart. Case...Read More

#2 - The Beast & Nnenna Freelon ft. King Mez & Kaze - Black Fantastic

Whatever it is they've been pumping into the Durham tap water, it seems to be working. With Thee Tom Hardy's brand new Secret of Thee Green Magic mixtape currently burning up our Mixtape Chart, a whole crew of Bull City...Read More

Question?

#3 - Question? - Wonder Where You Are

Hm... nah, too corny. I'll refrain from the obvious joke just this once, since it'd be a shame to tarnish a record as inspiring as Question?'s latest mixtape leak – an exclusive world premiere, no less – by making the...Read More

tabi Bonney

#6 - tabi Bonney ft. Wale & Kokayi - Like a King

Last we heard from tabi Bonney, he'd set out to Make a Killin' with the help of Clipse member Pusha T. Having apparently succeeded in acquiring those fat stacks, the D.C. native's ready to sit back and enjoy the fruits of his...Read More

Skyzoo

#7 - Skyzoo & !llmind ft. Lloyd Banks & Maino - Speakers on Blast (Remix)

Is it possible to improve on a masterwork of freshness like Speakers on Blast, single number two off Skyzoo and !llmind's recent collaborative debut? Having meditated on the matter for 40 days and 40 nights (OK, maybe it was...Read More

Jean Grae

#8 - Jean Grae - Bridge

Amongst the recent battle of the femcees and the onslaught of Nicki Minaj’s overhyped musical workings (yeah, I’m on that side), I got to wondering when I’d actually hear a talented woman on a hip-hop track who wasn’t...Read More

Arkansas Bo

#11 - Arkansas Bo - Monsta

Below the Mason-Dixon and east of the Ouachita Mountains lies Little Rock. East of Little Rock lies…well, nothing until you get to Memphis. Arkansas Bo is trying to prove otherwise. Hailing from Scuttgart, Bo has been...Read More

Emilio Rojas

#12 - Emilio Rojas ft. Killer Mike - FTW

You've gotta love a good fake-out. While the fanfare that kicks off Emilio Rojas' latest offering had me thinking “For the Win,” I should have known better than to think success would smooth the Rochester, New York...Read More

#13 - The Boy Illinois - Cardigan Sweater

While my wardrobe doesn't currently include a Cardigan Sweater, I may need to make a last-minute addition to my holiday wish list. Not only do they offer an unrivaled combo of warmth, comfort and sophistication, the ladies...Read More

Vonnegutt

#15 - Vonnegutt - Going Home

Hip-hop bands can be musical artistry or just a straight up hot mess. Our readers know we don’t even bother with the latter, so we (like, totally dude) won’t plague your ears with any Shop Boyz this week. Instead, we will...Read More

Question?

#16 - Question? ft. Verse Da Ink - Where I Belong

Finding your place in life is always a matter of intense inner struggle, regardless of how obvious the answers may seem to those around you. Thus, while you and I know full well that Question? belongs in front of a mic, it's...Read More

Jabee

#17 - Jabee - How to Fly

First, the bad news: despite what the title may suggest, Jabee's latest mixtape leak is not intended as a how-to manual. Do not, I repeat, do not jump off your roof while listening to How to Fly, unless you're a fan of broken...Read More
