DOWNLOAD: Joe Budden - In My Sleep
LISTEN:

Here’s the 2nd single off Budden’s upcoming album, Padded Room.

I have to be honest, I think one of the main reasons people followed the development of this song so closely is because Joe had his girl all over Joe Budden TV talking about it.

I mean, he tricked me into watching at least 3 YouTube videos about it…

Don’t believe me? Check all the videos with Ms. Tahiry after the jump.

Now I’ll be hearing this song on my TV a few times a day, complete with trippy visuals.

That’s not such a bad thing, though.

Tha Bizness just put out this video with Henny and Dow Jones breaking down the process of creating the beat to Young Jeezy’s “My President is Black.” This is probably one of the best “how I made…” videos there is, but notice how he never really tells you what the sounds are or how he got them (besides the programs). A true producer.

There’s a super HD version here.

I’ve seen this guy all over the TV lately. His PR campaign is definitely in full swing. Here’s the official video for his single, “The Great Depression.”

DOWNLOAD: Drake - Congratulations

Apparently Drake “forgot” to add the bonus track to So Far Gone. That, or this is the track you get when you buy the mixtape.

DOWNLOAD: A.Pinks - “Say You Will” Freestyle
LISTEN:

Drake
already showed you what could be done with this, and now A.Pinks is taking a stab. If Drake has the best freestyle on the track so far, I think Pinks gives him a run for his title.

I don’t care what you think about 808’s & Heartbreak, but this beat is hard, and every dope freestyle should further convince you of that.

DOWNLOAD: Spectacula - Unexclusively Exclusive (Mixtape)

Queens MC Spectacula and Dub MD just broke me off with this. How’s your mixtape going to have production from Alchemist, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, and Madlib? Sure, a lot of the tracks are beats that have been released before, but hey. That’s a lot for a mixtape, homey, what are you leaving for your album?

Anyway, check it out. I promise it’s free, especially with that bill.

DOWNLOAD: B.o.B. - Don’t Break My Heart
LISTEN:

Last time, it was the Beatles “Eleanor Rigby” that he flipped into “Lonely People.”

This time, B.o.B. used The Foundations hit, “Build Me Up Buttercup” for the hook on his latest track “Don’t Break My Heart.”

Not bad, I’m still taking “Lonely People” over this, though.

DOWNLOAD: Blu- HerFavoriteColo(u)r (Mixtape)

This has been a hell of a week for mixtape releases from some of the most talked about artists in hip-hop. I guess Blu just felt left out and had to hit us with one. This was just posted today via his MySpace, without much explanation, or buildup.
