Lupe Fiasco- Enemy of the State: A Love Story (Mixtape) <-Download Link

“So stay out of son(sun) way like you drinking blood.”-Lupe Fiasco on “Popular Demand”

So when I want them to hear me out/I just sit them next to a picture of Rosa splitting with her titties out/and what’s written on her titties is what it’s really bout. And her vagina/is some poor kids from China. Nipples/Nuclear missles. Ass/is a daughter without a dad. Back/is like Afghanistan, Iraq. Healthcare hair/Drive-by thighs/education lips/H-I-V eyes. Environment feet, justice get her so wet/Brains get you brain, you can fuck her if you protest. But before you bust on her face/man just finish listen to the tape/ENEMY OF THE STATE.”-Lupe Fiasco on “The National Anthem”

“Came up from the bottom of the Eye Exam, zoom/Now I’m like the biggest G off in the room”-Lupe Fiasco on “Say Something”

“School of hard knocks, I dean it/I done it, as well as a celebrated alumnist/I donate to the campus and my name’s on the arenas/but you cant bring it to my court, not even with subpoenas/cause you cant play my sport, but you can still cheerlead us/and you cant sit there, that section’s for the seniors/and the sexy senoritas/so just move up to the bleachers/how you gon school me when I grew up with your teachers?”-Lupe Fiasco on “The National Anthem”

Before I start, NahRight liberated the split-single-songs version of this mixtape(regular mixtape format) as the one above is one big 22 minute file(intentionally done by Lupe to give it that cassette feel).  Ok, that’s done? Let me say something that I may retract in this very same post. At this level of his career, given his body of work (classic mixtapes, albums, guest verses, singles, etc), Lupe Fiasco is starting his run to entering the conversation of the Best Rapper Ever. This is his Marshall Mathers LP run, his Life After Death run, his Be run, his Black Album run. This is his classic after the peak. Lupe drops off the best Thanksgiving gift EVER, his new mixtape Enemy of the State: A Love Story and EASILY murders beat. The above rhymes are honestly a SMALL fraction of the (DOPE) punchlines, extended metaphors, multisyllabic flowing rhymes on this mixtape. I want to gush, I want to analytically break down just why Lupe is just as good as 2009 Eminem, but I’ll save that for a later date.

Oh, and he’s dropping ANOTHER mixtape on Christmas.

PS- If THIS is the lyrical dexterity given FREELY on a 22 minute mixtape…then what madness has he in store for the album? OH MAN!

Trav Williams- “illtravis”

This might be the luckiest thing ever. Props to HipHopDx because  I damn sure don’t check out ALOT of the mixtapes they highlight(nothing against them and/or their selection, just no time). But this might be the biggest surprise gifts ever. I know Elzhi was doing a similar thing has “pay homage” to the UNDISPUTED GREATEST RAP ALBUM EVER(try and argue with me) but Trav Williams(RELATIVE UNKNOWN) killed it. No, it’s NOT as good as Illmatic. No, you SHOULDN’T expect it to be. But YES, it is one of the (DOPEST) mixtapes this year, I’d say 2nd only to So Far Gone and it might even be on the same level as it in terms of conceptual consistency. This came about thanks to the good people at Kevin Nottingham and their INGENIOUS Illmatic Beat Contest. .(DOPE).

Standout Tracks: “Light It Up”, “Bootleg Cable” and “Mechanics”

Drake- “So Far Gone” (Mixtape)

Drake- So Far Gone <-Download Link

“Lost some of my best verses down at Caibo/So if you find a Blackberry with the side scroll/Sell that motherfucker to any rapper that I know. Cause they need it much more than I ever will/I’m writing new ones, I’m getting better still.”-Drake on “Say What’s Real”

October’s Very Own drops off Drake’s 3rd mixtape, the HIGHLY anticipated (‘Net buzzing HARD over this) So Far Gone. On some real real real real shit(cause when you say it more times it’s more authentic), I wasnt fucking with Drake when I heard “Ransom”. The whole Degrassi/Lil Wayne clone sounding shit wasnt my shit. THEN..I heard “Say What’s Real”(before it was called that and before it was on the mixtape) and I started checking for him. THANK GOD I DID. He is one of the few (Curren$y and MAYBE Cory Gunz) underground, internet buzz, mixtape-known MC’s that I can see have HUGE commercial success. We’re living in an age where the line between mixtape and album is getting blurrier and blurrier(Charles Hamilton doesnt even call what he drops mixtapes anymore) and So Far Gone is so far the (DOPE)st MIXTAPE/ALBUM/PROJECT/WATEVA of ’09 so far. His flow is impeccable, his charisma is top notch, he even outshines Wayne…WHEN WAYNE IS RAPPING GOOD. Him and Trey Songz sound like they have more chemistry than Mole Man and Great Hova ever did. Be on the look out for this dude..and I swear if Wayne puts him on the back burner (like he has Nicky Minaj….Jae Millz….and ALL OF YOUNG MONEY) and drop ANOTHER album(wait…isnt he dropping his 2nd album in the past 10 months in a couple of months?) then he gon miss out. DRIZZY!!!

(DOPE)st Tracks– “Say What’s Real”, “Lust for Life”, “Successful”, “Unstoppable” and “The Calm”

READ MORE for one of the (DOPE)st tracks, Drake’s ode to success, “Successful” featuring Trey Songz and Lil Wayne (who delivers the rhyme I think will be on EVERYBODY’s away message/facebook status/Myspace mood soon).

Busta Rhymes- High (Prod. By J Dilla)

“Weed smokers come in all types of forms/From the elder people to the college niggas that’ll smoke in their dorms.”-Busta Rhymes on “High”

*DISCLAIMER- DJ CLUE’S ANNOYING ASS CAN BE HEARD YELLING IN THE SONG!! SORRY FOR HIS THIEVING ASS BEING ON IT!*

NOOOO I’m not late. Saw this shit over at HipHopDx a while back (like 2 years) and after computer crashes and papers to write, I never got around to downloading it. Then one night I was just watching old Dilla videos (Especially the one where he says him and Lil Kim went on a date, how BIG murdered ‘Pac on a track AND how a Dilla * Nas *Biggie * Busta joint was about to be made) and came across THIS gem. WOW…just WOW…the range of the beats this dude made is in this day and age(in ANY day and age actually) is pretty unheard of. Busta gives some “Big Bang”-esque (DOPENESS) and I just listen and zone the fuck out. BEYOND (DOPE). This is CLASSIC

Here’s also the download Link to the Mick Boogie * Busta Rhymes * J Dilla mixtape Dillagence.

Curren$y- “This Ain’t No Mixtape” Snippets * “Fin” Mixtape

“This aint even the album. It’s the snippets”-Curren$y on “This Aint No Mixtape Snippets

Curren$y- This Aint No Mixtape Snippets <-Preview + Download Link

“Raps I bust ’em/Problems with my life, don’t discuss ’em/Coups and leers jets, I lust them”-Curren$y on “Coups and Leers”

That above rhyme (the one below the link) perfectly..IMMACULATELY describes what a Curren$y freestyle, song, interview, mixtape, wateva sounds like. Straight rapping bars. Not alot of personal shit. And lavishness whether it be in the fact that he name drops everything from Louis Vutton to Family Guy(PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!). Here are the snippets of some of the songs on Curren$y’s forthcoming, long awaited, presumably weed influenced  debut album, This Ain’t No Mixtape. If you know ANYTHING about Hot Spitta you understand why this is a (DOPE) ass title. And you know that these snippets just made you want the album to leak unbeknownest to Curren$y or his management  drop already.

 

And for those that don’t know(I love using the Nail In The Coffin outro Eminem voice) about Curren$y and why he is probably one of the top 5 rappers out right now..don’t worry he and the good people at Onsmash.com gave you a cliffnotes of his current career.

Colin Munroe feat./ Joell Ortiz- “Piano Lessons” (Video) * Colin Munroe feat./ Wale- “Will I Stay RMX” Rehersal (Video)

Colin Munroe feat./ Joell Ortiz- “Piano Lessons” (Prod. By Black Milk)

“Don’t bet on me, I’m a long shot/I might be a million to one/So dont bet on me I’m a long shot/But in a million I might be the one.”-Colin Munroe “Piano Lessons”

Unbelieveable..I am truly disappointed in myself for the disservice I have given to you guys in not posting Colin Munroe’s shit ALOTTTT sooner. Basically this dude is an amazing singer/drummer/wateva else he plays and got BIG noteriety (Well at least in Hip Hop) for the way he MURKED Kanye’s “Flashing Lights” and made a better video to it. I knew about him for a minute and was kind of anticipating his new mixatpe, Colin Munroe is the Unsung Hero. But since I’m a dick in soooo many ways, I forgot. But here is a match made in aural heaven. Colin Munro * Joell Ortiz * Black Milk. And the video is SUPER FUCKEN (DOPE). The opacity and blending techniques is superb, perfect for the song. READ MORE to check out him rehearsing an equally(DOPE) track with Wale.
