Street God 3
Project Pat is on a tear. The Memphis legend dropped Street God at the tail end of 2015 and followed up with the sequel Street God 2 a mere two months later. Pat completes the trilogy this afternoon with the release of Street God 3.
The feverish grind of South Florida's Ace Hood continues. He has come through today with Starvation 5, his first project since the fourth Starvation mixtape, which was released in November. The tape arrives after Ace had been steadily dropping new tracks for a few months. A few of those -- "Go Mode" (feat. Rick Ross), "4th Quarter," and "Father's Day" -- show up on S5.
Bourbon Street Secrets
As you probably know, today is 420. Noted stoner Curren$y celebrates by releasing his new mixtape Bourbon Street Secrets, as promised. The tape is six tracks long and produced entirely by Purps of 808 Mafia. The lone feature comes from Rick Ross.
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.
Azealia Banks released her new mixtape Slay-Z without much fanfare. Her approach to promoting music is almost the antithesis of her approach to speaking her mind. A quick search of ‘Azealia Banks’ on the site returns a litany of social media beefs and very little music, so it’s easy to forget exactly why she got famous in the first place.
The Night I Went To... Los Angeles
Rockie Fresh dropped his mixtape The Night I Went To… almost exactly two months ago, and he’s already back to bless us with another tape. The Night I Went To… Los Angeles is only four tracks, but it’s part of a larger series in which the MMG signee plans to drop a few different tapes in honor of different cities.
Gone Till November
With the exception of Dirk Nowitzki's locker room bars, there's not a ton of German-bred rap music that makes it stateside. Joe Young is an exception... and today the emcee shares his latest mixtape Gone Till November. Laced with 15 tracks, Gone Till November gets features from some heavy hitters -- Rick Ross, The Game, Raewkon, Dave East, No Malice, Cormega, Inkmonstarr, & more. Production duties are handled by the likes of The Heatmakerz, Amp on the Track, and Craze.
With his Black Market album set to arrive next Friday (12/4), Rick Ross decides to give thanks to his fans ahead of time by releasing a new mixtape today called Renzel Remixes. Served as a double disc effort, the follow up to Black Dollar comes with 26 tracks in total, and finds the MMG boss spittin' over some of the industry’s hottest instrumentals, including tracks from Adele, Drake, Future, 2Pac, Yo Gotti, and more. You already know this about to have the streets on lock.
Miami newcomer Khaotic is taking the streets by storm, and we're happy to premiere his brand new tape, Boola, which should put him on the map in a big way. The first two tracks we got from Khaotic featured Rick Ross and Kevin Gates, respectively, so that should tell you something about his street cred. He's the rare breed of your singing rapper that makes hits strictly for the streets.
Rick Ross arrives right on time with his Black Dollar mixtape aka free album. The rapper gave fans little notice about the album release, teasing fans last weekend about new music, and a few days later revealing an entire album was on the way. And if you thought he was leaking a lot of tracks prior to (he served up "Money Dance," "Foreclosures," "She Wanna Fuck," and "Turn Ya Back"), there's a lot more where that came from-- 17 tracks total on Black Dollar.
We met Orlando rapper YT Triz last summer with Tales From Crime Hill, which featured the hit "How Can I Lose" with Bobby Shmurda, and now he's ready to soundtrack Summer 2015 with another full-length mixtape. We've already heard the hard-hitting "Vamonos," featuring Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, which continues to heat up in the streets, and Dysfunctional has 13 additional tracks for our listening pleasure. Listen to and download Dysfunctional and get to know YT Triz, Orlando's next up.
Casino Life 2: Brown Bag Legend
While we still haven't seen hide nor hair of French Montana's long-delayed album Mac & Cheese 4, he has been staying up on his mixtape game in the meantime. He gave us Mac & Cheese 4: The Appetizer in December, and today, we get Casino Life 2: Brown Bag Legend. In contrast to its Harry Fraud-produced predecessor, this one's packed with guest appearances.
All-Star Weekend 2015
DJ Whoo Kid Feat. DJ Scream & DJ MLK
All-Star Weekend isn't just for athletes. Every year, the music world has become increasingly involved in the happenings in and around the All-Star game, and 2015 is no exception. A couple days ago, MMG gave us their own mix to prep us for the weekend's festivities, and today, DJ Whoo Kid, DJ Scream & DJ MLK have put together a compilation just in time for you All-Star party.
With no news of Nipsey Hussle's Mailbox Money (save for some leaks) surfacing until a few minutes ago, we thought that we might not get the rapper's recently-announced Mailbox Music tape before the clock struck midnight on 2014. Thankfully, Nip came through in the clutch and delivered the project just six hours before the end of the year.
