Anyone else not watching the royal wedding right now? ...You too, huh? Well, here are some free music for y'all to royally cop and listen with cheerful glee. Maybe Prince William could use these for his reception, no?
Chamillionaire :: Major Pain 1.5
RapReviews.com posted this one up in the news section already. But in case you've been sleeping, here it is in the FMF edition. Chamillionaire always brings his A-game, whether his projects are free OR sold. "Major Pain 1.5" shows why it's his formel label Universal's loss that they let him go.
It's Lo-SOUL in case you ain't know so. The F-A, B-O, L-O, U-S brings us "The SOUL Tape" which features Fabo spitting over soulful sampled-tracks. A few of the tracks features Los' spitting over Kanye and J. Cole joitns, but most of the tracks are original (including a "Part II" of his smash hit "You Be Killin' 'Em," featuring Ne-Yo and Ryan Leslie).
Kev Brown is hands down one of the most underrated producers of hip-hop. Oh, did I mention that he raps...very well? Don't believe so, here's a free project from Brown himself that shows his work from 2001-2011 that'll keep your head noddin'.
Two years ago, Oddisee released this album on iTunes, Amazon, and CD form. But after Oddisee organized session files on his harddrive, some bonus materials from the "Mental Liberation" vaults have been rediscovered. So he decided to jubilantly give the album (w/ some bonus materials) for free! Can it be? Yes it can, and FMF definitely would love to share it with all the RR readers. In addition, this record features appearances by J-Live, Rapper Pooh, Georgia Anne Muldrow, MED, Black Milk, Finale, Invincible, LMNO, Hassaan Mackey, Prince Po, Dudley Perkins, Silent Knight, XO, yU, Trek Life, Kenn Starr, Stik Figa, Bilal Salaam, DJ Clear, and DJ Romes. If you love it, don't forget to cop it to show some support!
I say the P is freeeeeeee, Mobb Deep gettin money -- OH YEAAAAAH!!! Well, hopefully you'll excuse my poor Boogie Down Productions imitation. Prodigy wasted no time getting back to his music grind ever since he's been out of jail. In fact, a month after his release, he teamed up with Complex to give you this Free-P to hold you over. And it seems that the Dunn never lost his step. In fact, this makes me look forward to the upcoming Mobb Deep LP even more now! 'Cause it's the reaaaaaal... Wait a minute, where the rest of P's body go?
If you haven't heard yet, Soulja Boy is remaking the movie Juice...Yes, let that sink in for a moment. Also, if you couldn't tell by the cover, Soulja Boy is also playing Bishop, the role the late Tupac Shakur once had. Again, let that sink in. Download this if your swag power is low and remember to keep the original Juice soundtrack on hand while listening to this 'new' soundtrack. #TooJuicedUp #SWAG! #IfYouGottaGoOut,SWAG'sHowYouGoOut
XV is making his way to being one of the top lyricists of this year. If you haven't heard of XV by now and you claim to love hip-hop, then you're mad sleepin, f'real. XV spits over beats that bangs as many of the instrumentals are provided by Just Blaze, Seven, J. Cole, amongst others. Guest appearances rangwes from Pusha T, CyHi Da Prince, Donnis, and Patrick Stump (of Fall Out Boy). This mixtape proves that even zeroes can be heroes.

International selling performing artist Mike Beatz teams up with Norwegian producer Adonis for a classic album dedicated to the Boom Bap featuring Royce da 5’9”, Skyzoo, AZ and more.
Miami, FL US – April 2011 – Tomorrow, Mike Beatz and Adonis will debut their official 10-song collaboration album, Boom Bap, featuring heavyweight emcees Royce Da 5’9, AZ, Guilty Simpson, Reks and more. This G.T.P.S. release packs the punch that you would think an album called Boom Bap would pack, with the first track, “Go Hard”, providing the perfect opener to the raw hip-hop vibe of the whole disc. This entire album is furnished with captivating lyrics that compliment the hard-hitting boom bap sound, but on tracks like “Straight Like Indian Hair“ and “Signal”, Mike taps into the boom bap of his heart beat and brings out his more emotion provoking rhymes, giving the listener a reason to connect with his words on a deeper level, and proving that this is not only a remarkable album, but a very well rounded one as well. BoomBap is polished hip-hop purity, a gem for any music collection.
