Free Music Friday: Shuddup, it's Saturday, Fool! Edition


As I woke up on my drool-filled laptop, I realized, "OH snap~! I forgot to send in the FMF on the second F! But don't fret, instead of letting these free music go to waste, I'll give it to y'all today to bump for your weekend. One love to all the FMF readers, your listening is indeed appreciated.

B.o.B ;: No Genre



[As we all know, B.o.B proved himself as the hottest newcomer in rap this year, although it was a very long time coming. To show that he isn't just lazy in celebrating his newfound success, "No Genre" shows B.o.B as a cat who stays on his hustle. "No Genre" features appearances from CyHi Da Prince, Young Dro, Bun B, and T.I.]

Das Racist :: Sit Down, Man



[Yeah, this is a mixtape I criminally slept on. "Sit Down, Man" was released for a while, yet folks are still introduced to the styles of Das Racist to a great approval. They already earned a spot on Rolling Stones' Single of the Year and while Das Racist is one of the funniest rap group names I heard in a while, yet they're not joking. Just joking, they are joking. Just joking, they're not joking. Hahahaha jk?]

Evidence :: I Don't Need Love


[Evidence and the Beatles. What do they have in common? While you think of any comparision, check out this new freEP from Evidence as he mashes his rhymes together with Beatles joints. This also happens to be released on the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' break-up. Wow, 40 years already, huh? R.I.P. John Lennon and George Harrison.]

Low Budget Crew :: Low Budget Christmas (2nd Edition)



[You might remember that I put this up on FMF last year. However, this one is the second edition where there are additional vocal tracks sprinkled in for your holiday jingle. If you haven't heard it yet, then don't be a Scrooge and d/l it for your holiday cheer.]

Rapsody :: Return of the B-Girl



[Don't you ever say female rappers are dead, unless their name is Nicki Minaj. Rapsody is determined to show that females can rock as hard as men, or even better, in this new Star wars-influcenced "Return of the B-Girl" mixtape. With 9th serving as the Obi-Wan, Rapsody takes you to the galaxy far, far away with her ridiculous rhymes on display.]

The Artifacts Are Back!


The Artifacts were a thing of the past — a part of underground hip-hop history. Known for their two albums, 1994’s Between a Rock and a Hard Place and 1997’s That’s Them (and their biggest hit, “Wrong Side of Da Tracks”), the Newark-based duo split up in 1998. El Da Sensei and Tame One (the latter pictured above) continued their careers as solo artists.

The breakup wasn’t bitter; they just decided to record separately. A little over two years ago, however, at the Rock Steady Crew’s 31st anniversary party, they found themselves together on stage again, and they really liked it.

MP3: IMAKEMADBEATS - "Flyers" Feat. MidaZ The Beast


From Audible Treats:

MP3: IMAKEMADBEATS - "Flyers" Feat. MidaZ The Beast

Latest Single From IMAKEMADBEATS Delves Into The Darker Side Of His Pre-Album Dual-EP

The Song:

In the latest single to come from IMAKEMADBEATS' innovative dual-EP Daylight/Nightlight, IMMB enlists the lyrical styling of MidaZ The Beast to form the duo Blakout and take us into Nightlight. A stark contrast in both name and style to the Daylight side of the EP, "Flyers," the first single from Nightlight, is chock full of angry rhymes over a "venomous soundscape," as IMAKEMADBEATS calls it.

Taking aim at the darker side of life MidaZ spits about a lack of respect from promoters and all hip-hop heads in general, delivering his rant with palpable emotion, with the song's title and repeating chorus serving as the main focal point for the emcee. "I’ll never forget Method Man’s 'Torture,' says IMAKEMADBEATS, speaking on the inspiration for the song's subject matter. "In it, he said, 'Say what you like, just spell my name right.' This song is dedicated to people who don’t respect you enough to spell your name right."

Nightlight, in its edited form, will be available for free download next week. Daylight/Nightlight will be available in its full, unedited form for sale as a physical release in the near future.

Download "Flyers" for free here: http://media.audibletreats.com/IMAKEMADBEATS-Flyers_Ft_MidaZ_The_Beast.mp3 .

Keep an eye out for the free Nightlight EP, out soon, and IMAKEMADBEATS, out January 18th, 2011.

The Background:

IMAKEMADBEATS has built his reputation on an obsessive dedication to his craft and a mad scientist-like approach to tweaking samples, drums, and live instruments - proving himself to be both a rapper's producer and a producer's producer. Most people first became aware of IMAKEMADBEATS from his 2009 collaborative project The Transcontinental with Oxnard rhyme-slinger Roc C (a project that featured the likes of Oh No, Big Pooh, Rakaa Iriscience, and Chino XL), which subsequently led to the nationwide Smash Mouf Tour. In addition to the much-anticipated forthcoming Doxside Music Group self-titled debut, IMAKEMADBEATS is also unleashing his dual-EP concept album Daylight/Nightlight, featuring Butta Verses and MidaZ the Beast respectively. Also in the works are projects with Beretta 9 (Wu-Tang's Killarmy), his BlakOut album with MidaZ, an instrumental project, and more placements on projects by artists seeking the "IMAKEMADBEATS" treatment to their music.

Soulja Boy has sold over 12 million ring tones and over 10 million digital singles. His first album, Souljaboytellem.com, debuted #1 on the country's Rap Album chart and was certified platinum. It had the Grammy-nominated "Crank That" that was #1 in the country for an astonishing seven weeks.

Video: Dee-1 - "One Man Army Remix"


From Nancy B:

Video: Dee-1 - "One Man Army Remix"

New Orleans, LA - It's only been up for a few hours but already the blogs are posting Dee-1's video follow-up to his surprise smash, "Jay, 50 & Weezy", which has enjoyed spins on MTV Jams since October 30th, was up for votes on MTVu and has been posted on all major sites and blogs, in addition to garnering over 260,000 views total on YouTube with over 50 pages of comments. Dee-1's second offering, "One Man Army"  has already been recognized by the greats like Nah Right and 2 Dope Boyz and already has 4 pages of comments on YouTube.

David Augustine aka Dee-1 always had a passion for music. After graduating from Louisiana State with a Bachelors in marketing, he began teaching middle school as a way of funding that passion. The strong bond he built with his students, even as his notoriety as a local artist began to grow, made him realize that being Dee-1 gave him a much larger platform to enlighten than being Mr. Augustine and so, his career choice was made.

Since then there has been his highly successful mixtapes, "Still We Rise", "I Am Who I Am" and "I Hope They Hear Me", an independent album, "David & Goliath" (nominated for for Hip Hop Album of the Year by Offbeat magazine) and live performances alongside the likes of Lil Wayne, Drake, Lupe Fiasco, Trey Songz, Akon, Talib Kweli and more, where his star power was evident. Dee-1 was also the first rap act to win the annual LouisianaStateUniversity "Battle of the Bands."

Next up for this unapologetic musical educator is his new mixtape, "I Hope They Hear Me: Vol. #2", set to drop as a free download early next year and it's appetizer release,"I Hope They Hear Me, Vol. 1.5" dropping next week, also as a download. The first single/video for the tape is "Jay, 50 and Weezy", a lyrical challenge from Dee-1 to those he looks up to in the game.
