New Orleans native Curren$y might be part cyborg. Either that or they’re putting something in the weed down there, because the man is prolific in a way that few other artist can achieve and still retain top quality.

This week, as you probably noticed, the VERY HOTTTTTs were killing it, and no, we weren't just in a giving mood, there was just a lot of fire music dropping. Not only that, the songs lists were phenomenally long each day (who peeped our Snapchat?). All this to say, everyone should have a song they were fucking with this past week.

Freddie Gibbs made headlines recently for stating in an interview that he considers himself on the same level as artists like J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar.

In December Freddie Gibbs put out Shadow of a Doubt. It was a sonic departure from Piñata, his previous record with Madlib, but familiar to anyone who had followed Gangsta Gibbs from before that acclaimed 2014 album. In December 2015, he sat down with NPR’s “Microphone Check” for a long, in-depth interview.

Things haven't always looked this clear for Freddie Gibbs. The Gary, Indiana rapper could have ended his career as another major label casualty, stuck in a deal that didn't have his best interests in mind. After failed stints with Interscope and Jeezy's CTE World, Gibbs set his sights on the independent route, allowing him the freedom to give his loyal fanbase new music how and when he wanted.

At this point, there's a version of Freddie Gibbs for every breed of hip hop fan. Old head? Try midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik, the 2009 outing where he pays homage to icons like Outkast and Tupac. Mid-2000s street rap addict? Gibbs' stint with Jeezy's CTE label checks that box, especially on the album ESGN. Drill fanatic? Try "Deuces," a gem of a Young Chop-produced loosie. Backpacker who always keeps a dimebag within reach?

Today has been very heavy on the album release side, as you've probably noticed by the almost insurmountable number of streams we've posted thus far (and there are more to come). In between this week's long list of new releases, as well as last week's, your iTunes should be busy for a while. That's not even mentioning the mixtapes that'll drop on Thanksgiving Day next week-- Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent.

The Alchemist and Oh No are tow of the most skilled samplers in the game, so when they come together as Gangrene, it's truly something special.

Last year, L.A.-based producer Salva became a household name in hip-hop circles by scoring collabs with a diverse list of artists that included Schoolboy Q, Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs, A$AP Ferg, Kurupt, Problem and E-40. With his all-over-the-place Peacemaker tape and its "Old English" single, the beatmaker gained himself a much larger following in the rap world, and so we had to hit him up to be featured on "Behind The Beat."

Samples Of The Week: March 12 Mar 12, 2015 at 02:33pm
After a week where Kanye West, Wale and Ludacris dropped off new tracks, we had fewer top-tier artists releasing material this week. Instead, some fan favorites returned from dry spells to bless us with new material, all of which was pretty dope. In this edition of Samples Of The Week, we look at flips by Freddie Gibbs, Flatbush Zombies and Curren$y. As always, some of these are very unexpected, some are obscure, and all are expertly executed. Read on to get the scoop.

Top Tracks of The Week: March 3 - March 9 Mar 10, 2015 at 06:19pm
Here it is, the once-a-week look at the tracks toward the top of our charts that you need to know about. Keep in mind that these tracks are culled from the very top of our Top 100 and, by their very nature, lean toward more popular artists. We still think these tracks are worthy of your attention, but if you need a look at artists you may have missed, take a look at Underrated Audio. With no outright superstars to talk about this week, our top tracks consisted of quite a few up-and-comers (and several familiar faces we haven't heard from in a while).
