Forgive my Scrooge moment, but best believe the FMF gives y'all the gift that you can never open too soon. Hurry up and unwrap before it's a wrap!

Big Boi vs. The Black Keys :: The Brothers of Chico Dusty

The Brothers of Chico Dusty Cover Art

[If you never heard of the Black Keys (They're a rock band, but trust me when I say they're dope!), go and cop their album of this year "Brothers." And if you haven't heard Big Boi's "Sir Lucious Left Foot," then what are you even doin' reading this? Go and peep it! Okay, after you hear both, try to hear THIS! Two crazy albums blended so well and smoothly, you'll nearly think this is an official release. Check out The Big Boiack Keys music! Wick-it the Instigator should tell it all on this one.]


Diggy Simmons :: Past Presents Future [Hosted by DJ Premier]

[If you don't know by now, Diggy had a huge shoe to fill when he decided to take his father Rev. Run's role of becoming a rapper. However, he has such a style of his own, that he doesn't even need to "walk this way" as he makes his own footsteps as Diggy. No joke, this kid's about 15 and he's doper than some cats twice his age. DJ Premier gives the co-sign as he also HOST Diggy's mixtape. What more can you ask for?]


Nipsey Hussle :: The Marathon

[Few of y'all may have heard that Hu$$le recently freed himself from the deal with Epic Records before he could even drop a record. But no need to fret, because he still drops the Marathon to show that he still runs West Coast hip-hop of today. This mixtape proved that Hussle never stop like a West Coast party and he's out in his own direction that with or without a major label, he's stay on his work.]


Rick Ross :: Ashes to Ashes

[Rick RAWSE has been the BAWSE of oh-ten (in the words of Bun B). No doubt about it, but you know that Rick Ross won't go out of this year without a bang! So here's, as of this writing, a last new Ross mixtape of this year as he remain sure that 2011 won't bring any slow success. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, for the free music in RAWSE we trust.]


Sean Boog :: Light Beers Ahead of You

[Sean Boog, 1/2 of the Away Team, knows a thing or two about Bud Light, Miller Lite, or Coors Lite. In fact, he knows so much about those that he's light beers ahead of you. Get it? I just joked. Anyway, Sean Boog gives you a free glimpse on how he's the equivalent to alcohol in parties -- an essential item for a good-time, without all of the hangovers, though. THis free project not only shows his skills on knowing alcohol, but how much light YEARS he may be ahead of you. And that's to infinity and beyond for this Buzz Lightbeer.]

Seige Monstracity :: The ProSeiger

[Psst, I got a secret for you! If you're an up and coming rapper looking for some dope instrumentals beyond the ones err'body be jumpin' on because {*insert hot rapper/producer name here*} did it, Then click below the bandwagon radar and get with the beats of Seige. The beats here are indeed full of flavor that Craig Mack's ears itself would overdose over. Check out the monstracity they call Seige.] 


That's it for the "Christmas Eve Edition" of "Free Music Fridays." If you have any free music you would like to share with the world, please e-mail me at If you're an artist with your free mixtape/album shown on this page and you want to send me a link re-up, corrections, and/or questions, e-mail me at, as well. Thanks for reading and enjoy y'all! Two fangas, one love.... Merry Christmas!!!

From Tyler Franz:

PR: Hip Hop Buzz Artist "Breakneck the Mage"

Eau Claire,WI recording artist and former Minneapolis,MN resident Tyler Franz aKa Breakneck the Mage has recently completed work on two new albums to be released by Sonic Swings Records on February 2nd physically (The VolumeOne Store, Trucker's Union, Tangled Up In Hue,,, and January 25th digitally (iTUNES us/uk/aus/jp, Amazon, eMusic, Myspace, Pandora, Bandcamp,

Because of your status in the industry, press-only advanced copies of both albums are now available for you if interested in reviewing either of the albums. All you need to do is click the above links for each album. I am available anytime for interviews, question, concerns, comments, to get a copy of the albums, or anything else you may need from me.

The Wisconsin CD Release Parties are all set and confirmed for February 11th (The Tomahawk Room, Chippewa Falls), February 25th (House of Rock, Eau Claire) and March 26th (The Waterfront, Menomonie) and will feature performances from Breakneck the Mage and the Tablesetters, Frozen Tundra, The Crest, Flip Philmore, Fathom, Blinded, Moxie, and many special guests and surprises. A show on February 16th at Sauce Soundbar in Minneapolis,MN with Ernie Rhodes and Carnage has also now been confirmed.

Both albums are being pressed as this is being sent out and are currently well ahead of schedule. Both were entirely written, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Breakneck the Mage at his own Green Street Studios in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. As if he wasn’t busy enough, he also handed the artwork and music video portions of both projects.

The first two singles (This Is… ,  Liquid Water) from “Overdubs & Overdoses” have already landed online and have received a considerable amount of airplay already. These tracks can be found online at the Breakneck the Mage facebook, myspace, website etc. In addition to this, the first two singles (Breakneck’s Goodie Bag, Video Game Music) from “The Misadventures of Breakneck the Mage” are also available in the same spots.

The award winning musician/entrepreneur has made quite a name for himself over the last five years, doing everything from radio DJ to organizing breakdancing events, and performing everywhere from Kansas City through Chicago and back to Minneapolis on bills featuring many diverse acts like Heiruspecs, Eyedea & Abilities, Awol One, Mac Lethal, Kanser, Tech N9ne, God Johnson, Down Lo & Deploi, Stealin' Strings, Irie Sol, Desdamona, Maria Isa, Golden, I Self Devine, and Dred I Dread. After 2008’s “Goes to Hollywood” helped him earn the “Best Hip Hop Act in the Chippewa Valley” in a reader’s poll, Mage’s next effort was 2009’s “Breakneck the Mage Is Dead” and it garnered some positive press in many publications.

In anticipation, Sonic Swings & Stylings has already released the first two parts of a three music video series created by breakneck the Mage himself using vintage public domain film footage and live performance clips. The first two videos can be viewed at , Breakneck's Myspace, and at . The first video for Misadventures is called "Time Warp" and will have been released by the time you read this.

Since February is a long time away, Breakneck also decided to release two free mixtapes to hold everyone over. Both "String Cheese, Beef Sticks, and Chocolate Milk" (consiting of old material, freestyles, and colabs) and "Breakneck the Mage Presents…Industry Beats vol. 2" (over popular artists industry songs) as well as many other tracks can be downloaded at the free Breakneck the Mage Audio Alcove over at
