MC4, which was supposed to have been French Montana's official sophomore album, had seemed to be a disappointing endeavor. Soon before its intended release date (Aug. 19), the album was delayed due to sample clearance issues, and to make matters worse, it leaked online right before that. Earlier today, however, French revealed that MC4 is alive, and he announced his plans to release the project as a mixtape later tonight. He has indeed made good on that promise, as MC4 is now available for download.

N.O.R.E., AKA Noreaga, dropped his album Drunk Uncle over the weekend, but he was also nice enough to bless us all with a free download version. It’s a huge project, stretching across 23 tracks and skits. As expected, Noreaga brings back the old school with this one, but has a bunch of modern sounding joints as well.
