Cash Cash is a new electronic production trio out of New Jersey and this is their newest track, an upbeat, dance friendly track titled "Overtime". Just an overall good vibe to this one, this is the first track I've heard from Cash Cash but they are definitely a group to keep an eye on. Almost reminds me of The Knocks with a little harder electronic feel. Give "Overtime" a listen and download it for free below.

Here's the audio for Tyga's latest freestyle "I'm Different" off of his upcoming mixtape 187. Mixtape Tyga has always been far superior to Album Tyga so I'm really looking forward to 187. Judging by the sounds of this one it should be legit. Download "I'm Different" below and be on the lookout for 187 which drops November 30th.

It's been a little while since we've had Tayyib's name on the site, the Philly rapper has been touring with his fellow Visionary Music Group artists killing it across the country. He recently leaked the first track off of his upcoming mixtape Keystone State Of Mind 2 in "Like Dat" and here we have the official video for the song courtesy of FTS Creative. The song has a really relaxed vibe which is where Tayyib shines. Looking forward to Keystone State Of Mind 2, the full project is coming soon. Check out the video clip above and download Like
I've admittedly never been a huge Odd Future fan but I've been getting more and more into Hodgy Beats and Left Brain's Mellowhype releases in the past few months and they've got me hooked. Here is the official video for one of their tracks "Break". It's a short little cut but Hodgy's flow is unreal. Check it out in the clip above.

Viceroy brings his signature tropical-indie vibe on his newest single "While We're In Love" featuring vocals from Ghost Beach. Every song Viceroy releases is the catchiest shit I've ever heard and this one is no different. Definitely has the ability to get stuck in the brain. You can stream it below and the song is available for purchase on iTunes now.
Been holding this one back for a few days after I saw it on the Dancing Astronaut the other day. They got the debut of Paris & Simo's remix to Usher's single "Numb". This song has gotten the remix treatment over and over, but they add in their own bassline and out their own mark on the song. Definitely one of the best remixes of this song I've heard, and a must download. Check it out below.
Casey Veggies goes in over some old-school sounding production courtesy of Chuck Strangers for his newest track "Smart Water" that will not appear on his upcoming mixtape. Dope track nonetheless, this beat is perfect for Casey's flow and voice and he kills it. Download it for free below.
Introduce yourselves to the next two out of Pittsburgh to make their mark on the hip-hop game. The Come Up consists of Fanchise and Vinny Radio and the duo just dropped their anticipated free album Change Of Plans. The project features guest appearances by Mac, Casey Veggies, 9th Wonder, Big Jerm and more. It's definitely a project you should check out, the buzz around these two has been growing since the drop of the album and this track definitely shows what they're capable of. Stream and download Change Of Plans below.
Andre 3000 just needs to go ahead and drop an album already, these features are the biggest tease of all time. The newest single off of T.I.'s forthcoming album Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head made its way onto iTunes today and it features an unreal verse from Andre 3000 in which he addresses his relationship with Big Boi among other things. Definitely a must download song, stream it below.
Here's Skylar Grey's first single titled "C'mon Let Me Ride" with a verse from Eminem. Definitely much more of a mainstream pop sound than anything else we've heard from her. Give it a listen in the lyric video above.

French Montana has been releasing a stupid amount of material recently. He just dropped his latest mixtape in Mac & Cheese 3 and this is his latest official video off that project. On this one he enlisted Bad Boy head honcho Diddy and fellow Bad Boy signees Red Cafe, Los and MGK to go in over this heavy instrumental. Check out the clip above and click here to download Mac & Cheese 3.
For Futuristic's latest One Take freestyle he chose to go in over Eminem's classic "Lose Yourself" from the Eight Mile soundtrack. I have to be honest, when we first started posting Futuristic's music a little over a year ago I was definitely not a believer. I wasn't completely sold on him by any means and kind of wrote him off. It's safe to say that he's proven me completely wrong in the past few months. He's been going off with his last few releases and these one take videos really show how talented he is. He can flow with the best of them and he just puts in the work. He's been dropping track after track the past few weeks and they've all blown me away. Give this newest one a listen above and click the link below to download all of his past work. Definitely don't sleep on Futuristic.
I took a little long weekend for Thanksgiving but now I'm back at it, and more importantly back at the beach. The day got even better when I saw 50 dropped the lastest single off of his forthcoming album Street King Immortal, and it's got two huge features from Eminem and Adam Levine. Adam Levine lays down a smooth chorus and Eminem and 50 both kill it. I expected Eminem to have a sick verse but 50 definitely pleasantly surprised me. Sounds like he's coming back strong for his new album. Street King Immortal is coming soon.

As a teaser to the release of their latest original project, the One Night EP, Timeflies released the official video for the title track off the project. Cal sings on most of this track and his voice sounds better than ever, and the production from Rez is unreal. The intrumentals on their original projects have been unreal, and if this is any indication One Night will be their best project to date. Check out the video above and click the link below to preorder the One Night EP on iTunes. The full project will be available on November 27.
Huey Mack has been all over the place the last few months with his releases. They've been really hit or miss with me, and it seemed like he was getting a bit into experimental singing and his beat selection just wasn't doing it for me. Last night he dropped this remix to Shwayze's "Love Is Overrated" and it seems like he's getting back to what works for him. He adds in a catchy hook and as usual his flow is legit, this beat is a really good choice for Huey. His last mixtape A Boy Named Hue was really impressive so we'll see if he can hold on to that momentum. Give this new one a listen above and check Huey out on Facebook and Twitter as well.
Wiz let loose another track off of his upcoming sophomore album ONIFC today and it features a verse from dipset's Cam'ron. Honestly not sure how I'm feeling about this one. It seems like it's classic Wiz trying to rely on his flow alone to carry songs. I really hope this is not a sign of things to come for his album, but the content of his last few tracks just has not been there. Still hopeful going into the album because regardless the features will most likely be unreal, but hopefully Wiz can pull it together and give us a little something more than money and champagne on ONIFC. Give the track a listen above and ONIFC drops December 4th.

I've been waiting for this video to come out ever since I caught the behind the scenes footage of the video shoot way back in May and today Kid CuDi and Dot Da Genius have finally released the video for "Teleport 2 Me, Jamie". This track was easily the stand-out track off of the WZRD EP and definitely deserved a dope video. As most of Cudi's videos go it's a really trippy set of visuals directed by Walter Robot. Check it out above and enjoy.
Kaskade dropped two new gems on his soundcloud today for mashup monday, one of which is available for free download. Kaskade's mashups are always unbelievable and this week's batch are as is to be expected. Each combines Kaskade production with Tommy Trash and the second one samples Sebastian Ingrosso as well. Check them both out below, and hit up Kaskade's soundcloud page to discover some more mashup monday downloads.
Futuristic has done a few of these one-take freestyles in the past and he impresses me more and more with each one. For his latest he takes on the instrumental from Kendrick's Drake assisted good kid m.A.A.D city cut "Poetic Justice". His flow is effortless on this one, you can check out the rest of his work and download this one one his website.
The latest visuals to be released off of MGK's major label debut album Lace Up see the light of day today in the form of the video for his hard-hitting Young Jeezy assisted track "Hold On (Shut Up)". Check the video out above and check out Lace Up now if you haven't already, it is in stores now.
With the release of his sophomore album around the corner Wiz dropped this new cut "Gone" featuring Juicy J to hold his fans over. These two have been killing it lately, they're coming off the release of one of the best songs in the last few weeks in "Know Betta" and this one is really smooth. Download it for free below. ONIFC is in stores on December 4th.

Bobby Ray dropped his highly anticipated return to the mixtape game today in the form of this 18 track effort Fuck Em We Ball. B.o.B's mixtapes have always been much more well recieved than his albums, this has much less of a commercial sound than his sophomore album Strange Clouds. He's become one of the more mainstream rappers out these days but on Fuck Em We Ball he shows he can still murder bass-heavy, straight hip-hop beats. The tape includes features from fellow Grand Hustle MC's T.I., and Iggy Azaelea as well as Mac Miller, Juicy J and more. Stream it in full and download the tape below.
Wale dropped his newest single yesterday, this one will live on his forthcoming mixtape Folarin and is a more politically charged track. The beat has an old-school feel, Wale has always been at the top of his game over old-school horn driven beats and thats exactly what we have here. Check it out below.
Action Bronson & The Alchemist just dropped their latest collaborative project today titled Rare Chandeliers. Action is one of the most interesting figures in hip-hop these days. The chef-turned-rapper has been killing it since he made a splash on the scene with his collab project with Party Supplies titled Blue Chips. He works with some of the best producers in hip-hop and is seriously on the rise these days, he recently inked a major label deal with Vice. Give the full project a listen below and download it for free.

Here's the official video for Wiz's Weeknd assisted single "Remember You" off of his forthcoming sophomore effort ONIFC. Definitely a weird vibe to this one, I can't really connect Wiz getting fitted for a suit to the odd vampire-like story line. Take it for what you will, I still feel like this should be a Weeknd song with a Wiz feature.
Newest track from Joey Bada$$ featuring TDE's Ab-Soul just dropped. Joey has been unstoppable since the release of his extremely well received debut mixtape 1999. "Enter The Void" is the b-side to Joey's latest single "Waves" which you can purchase on iTunes now. Ab-Soul and Joey both murder it, stream it in the youtube video above.
I've got some papers to write today so I figured I'd just take the quick route and post three new free downloads in one post to get it out of the way. Last night two solid new hip-hop tracks dropped. One of them is Logic's new single titled "Concrete". On this one he samples Nas' "NY State Of Mind" and brings a more laid-back, old-school vibe. The next is J Cole's latest track titled "Miss America". This is not a leak off of his recently announced forthcoming sophomore album Born Sinner, but more just a treat for his fans after a long absence with no new tracks. The third song is a bit of a changeup, it's adventure club's latest remix. This time the dubstep duo took on Yuna's "Lullabies", chopped up her vocals and put their classic Adventure Club touch on it and it's a hit. I'm not a huge dubstep fan but I've never disliked a remix of theirs. Check out all three songs and download them below.
Logic - Concrete
J Cole - Miss America
Yuna - Lullabies (Adventure Club Remix)

Freddie Gibbs brings it back to his hometown of Gary, Indiana for the official video for his track "BFK" off of his latest Gangsta Grillz mixtape Baby Face Killa. Freddie is definitely someone to look out for in the future, his name just continues to get bigger and he's dropped a few solid projects. Check out the video above and download Baby Faced Killa if you haven't already.

Lets get this straight right off the bat, I absolutely despise Chief Keef. I'm not posting this song because of him, and the kid is definitely not famous because of his lyrical skills...he barely has any. However, for some reason people seem to be infatuated with the kid and his flows. This is the video for his newest track "Kobe" where he likens himself to Kobe in the fact that it seems you either love him or hate him with no in between.
I'm not posting this song because of Keef. Anyone could spit a few bars over this beat and have it sound good, the beat is that good. That's the case with almost all of his songs. He would be nowhere in his career if it wasn't for budding super-producer Young Chop. He's gone from obscurity to working with some of the biggest names in hip-hop and his beats are consistently unreal. I definitely like the sound of this track, but Chief Keef can take a hike as far as I'm concerned. Dude is even too dumb to lip-synch his own lyrics in his videos. Take this song for what it's worth...the beat is too good.

Just one I forgot to post the other day that's been on repeat for me ever since I first downloaded it, figured it would be better late than never. Juicy J has been hit or miss with me for quite a while, so has Wiz for that matter, but this song is tough. Juicy J co-produced it and delivers the best verse I've heard from him in a while. The sample of The Weeknd on the beat is dope and it's an all around success. Definitely a must download if you haven't already. Spotted it over at illRoots.
Dope new track from Maryland MC Uno Hype. Uno is one of the more promising up-and-comers on the scene. If you haven't checked out his latest, DJ Black Diamond presented, mixtape Fxck The Hype you're missing out. The tape feaured the likes of Smoke DZA and Joey Bada$$ and was a solid project to say the least. On "R.E.M." Uno further displays his lyrical prowess over a chilled out instrumental produced by el-R. Give it a listen and download it for free below.
Project 46 has been on a roll recently, releasing a ton of sick mainstream remixes. They recently put their own touches on Usher's single "Numb" and they turned it into an absolute dancefloor hit. Not much else to say but check it out for yourself. If you're not familiar with Project 46 check out the rest of their tracks on their soundcloud. Extended mix and download for this one coming soon. Enjoy.
As Big Boi gears up for the release of his forthcoming album he continues to drop gems, including this track he released today alongside A$AP Rocky and Sarah Barthel of Phantogram. Rocky always meshes well with southern rappers, that Houston feel to his flow works perfectly alongside Big Boi and Sarah Barthel adds in a beautiful hook over some airy, glitchy production. Click the link below to stream the song and be on the lookout for Big Boi's album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors which drops December 11th.
Ellie Goulding just released this new single fresh off the release of her latest full length effort Halcyon. This track was produced by her now ex-boyfriend Sonny Moore aka Skrillex. Definitely not a classic Skrillex feel to this production, which as far as I'm concerned is a good thing. Much more mellow instrumental here, the kicks and drums are on point. Give it a listen for yourself below.

The Weeknd dropped the video for his Drake assisted track "The Zone" today in anticipation of the drop of his forthcoming album The Trilogy (A re-release of his three mixtapes with new added songs). He's been dropping tons of new tracks in the past week or so leading up to the album. If you aren't up on The Weeknd yet you're missing out, he's set to blow up with this first official album release. The Trilogy drops November 13th.
There was a lot of talk a few months ago about a Lady Gaga feature on Kendrick's debut album good kid, m.A.A.d City. Kendrick and Gaga became great friends over the past year and a collab track between the two of them seemed inevitable. Although it was supposed to happen, it didn't end up coming to fruition because of disagreements between Gaga and Kendrick's camp over the direction of the track. So it never happened for Kendrick's album, but today Gaga dropped her version of "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe" on her twitter. I have to admit I like the album version of the track much better, Gaga's voice just isnt doing it for me on this one. Give it a listen above for yourself, and if you haven't checked out Kendrick's new album yet I truly don't know what's wrong with you.
Kinetics & One Love released the official video for arguably their best song of their careers today. "Sign Language" features the beautiful vocals of Wynter Gordon on the hook, and is a testament to Kinetics & One Love's songwriting abilities. Kinetics' storytelling abilities are some of the best out there, this song was begging for a proper video. "Sign Language" is off of Kinetics' latest mixtape effort With A Little Help From My Friends which you can download for free below.

I don't think there's a single up-and-coming artist out there today who has given you as much free music to this point as e-dubble. In his freestyle friday series he gave you a dope new free (completely self-produced for that matter) song week after week. Today he released his newest full project in the form of his Reset EP. His concious lyrics and his strong, in your face flow clearly resonate with listeners as his buzz has continued to grow since the freestyle friday series and he's well on his way to becoming the next indie hip-hop heavyweight. You can stream the EP in full below and support e-dubble by purchasing it on iTunes. There's a little bit of everything on this project. You've got your classic introspective e-dubble tracks, and then he even closes out the EP by going in over an electronic, dubstep influenced, bass-heavy beat. Very interesting project, well worth the money thats for sure.
I've featured a few bootlegs and originals from CHANGE on the site prior to this release, but this is by far his biggest release yet. Alex Woolley, also known as CHANGE, released his first full project today in his Nature EP. This kid is a rising star in the EDM genre and this project has something for every EDM fan and it is 100% comprised of original material. Very impressive to say the least, it's some of the best progressive house/trance I've heard in a while and something that is definitely worth checking out. Stream the full project and download it for free below, enjoy.

Take a step back in time to the good old days of hip-hop courtesy of young Brooklyn MC Joey Bada$$. If you keep tabs on the site you know I'm a huge fan of Joey's, for being such a young kid he really taps into the era of hip-hop that made me a fan in the first place. If you never checked out his 1991 mixtape that captivated the hip-hop world you need to change that asap. the old-school VHS effects on the video only add to the nostalgic vibe. Check out the video above and download the 1991 mixtape if you haven't already.
The latest track from mashup production duo The Hood Internet puts Kanye and Jay's verses from their hit Watch The Throne track "Ni**as In Paris" over the TNGHT's "Goooo" instrumental off of their latest EP. Word is TNGHT is currently looking for people to add verses in over their tracks, but this combination works surprisingly well. The majority of mashups have gotten really stale to me, but theres definitely still people who just do it right. I've gotten really into D.Veloped's mashups and The Hood Internet are easily two of the best mashup producers out. Give their latest effort a listen and download it below.
Andre Anjos, better known as the leader of the production collective known as RAC, released his first full official album today in his project Chapter One. This is the first step in what will be an unbelievable promising career for him. He's become one of the premier remix producers in the industry, and has released some of my personal favorite tracks of the last 6 months. You can stream the full album below and if you like what you hear you can head over to iTunes to buy the full project. Many of these remixes are also available for free around the internet and on RAC's soundcloud page. Stream the full project below and enjoy.

Yonas released his latest single titled "Thought I Told Y'all" today off of his forthcoming EP Bright Lights, Big City. He's become super consistent, every track he releases is solid and he pumps out catchy hooks like it's second nature. Out of all of the up-and-coming rappers out there today, Yonas easily has the most mainstream crossover appeal. Having just inked a deal with 1st Round Records it seems it's only up from here for the NYC rapper. Check out the single below and be on the lookout for Bright Lights, Big City coming soon.
Arion recently put his own touches on Swedish House Mafia's euphoric final single "Don't You Worry Child" that's been the soundtrack of their breakup, and lead into their final tour. I wasn't sure how this one was going to come out but it's unreal. I've really liked all the remixes I've heard form Arion, it's not super heavy dubstep and the drums and bass in this one are on point. Check it out below and enjoy.
Kid Cudi makes his directorial debut with the video for his track with King Chip that served as his return to his rapping ways of old. Definitely a trippy set of visuals to say the least. Cudi himself said it's meant to be experienced on acid and/or shrooms, so do with that information what you will...Enjoy.
Mumford & Sons released the official video for one of the standout tracks off of their latest full length album Babel. It stars actor Idris Elba who also directed the video. You may recognize from shows like The Office, or The Wire. The theatrical visuals perfectly match the tempo of the song, and Elba does a great job of portraying a blind man throughout the storyline. Check it out above, if you haven't gotten your hands on a copy of Babel yet I'm not sure whats wrong with you.

The Game-Holy Water Music Video from Taydoe Kidd on Vimeo.
Game dropped this track as the second installment in his Sunday Service series this weekend. A mere 24 hours later we have the official video for the bass-heavy, Sap produced track. Game is leading up to the release of his final album with Interscope and he's got a lot to live up to. Judging by the sound of this one he's at the top of his game. Check it out and be on the lookout for more coming from Game this Sunday. Jesus Piece drops on 12/11.
Here's the latest remix from the production collective known as RAC. They had arguably the song of the summer in their track "Hollywood" with Penguin Prison, and they are releasing a remix album tomorrow titled Chapter One. This remix was done by Andre Allen Anjos and gives the original Chromeo track more of a funk vibe. I've never been unimpressed with a track from this group, and the album should be dope. Check it out and be on the lookout for Chapter One dropping tomorrow.
Skizzy has to be the most sporadic rapper on the come up right now. It seems like we've been waiting for two years for his debut mixtape Phases to drop, and the wait between singles is always too long. Somehow his fanbase stays stronger than ever through all of it. With Phases supposedly "on the way" Skizzy dropped the latest single titled "The Come Down" with Connor Youngblood on the hook. Skizzy has been on a real melodic kick with his last few singles. This one and "High School Girls" have been really smooth, but I'm not sure how I feel about this latest track. Hopefully he brings some diversity to Phases with melodic tracks and some harder hip-hop tracks, but we'll just have to wait and see. That is if the mixtape ever comes out. Check out "The Come Down" below.
Needless to say it's been a hectic past seven days for myself and the rest of the Fairfield senior class. We went from living on the beach to being stuck in forced triples and converted lounges all over campus. Sandy came through and gave us all a big ass reality check. Time to get back to normal today though, it's been a minute since I've posted anything and I'm not even going to bother trying to catch up by posting everything I've missed. However there was a big drop last week that can't be ignored. Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt dropped his first track in a while and it came in the form of this introspective track written in his first week back from his time in a school for troubled kids in Somoa. He let's you into his thoughts on his return and how he's doing being back in the limelight. Give it a listen below and enjoy.
