Need a free goodie to get your week started? Crizzly has you covered with his remix of “Way We Ball” by Lil Flip to get you ready for the long week ahead of you. Notorious for his ability to combine hip-hop and wobbly synths together perfectly, Crizzly strikes again transforming the original hip-hop track into a dubstep masterpiece that reminded us why we fell in love with his music in the first place. Oh yeah, and let me remind you again that the track is FREE.
Ross & Diddy are back at it again and this time toss the keys to 2 Chainz‘s “Birthday Song.” The already famous single from Titty Boi’s “Based on a T.R.U. Story” is updated with two verses that even leave Kanye looking cheap. Weeks after its release the song makes a comeback with the heavyweights refreshing the Sonny Digital production. Happy twenty-first to my bro Phil, someone get this kid a big booty hoe tonight.
“The Baddest Man Alive” gets an action-packed video featuring bluesy indie rockers The Black Keys and hip-hop’s RZA. But it’s not quite like the fights you’d see in the film The Man With The Iron Fists. It involves a fish, fortune cookie, lettuce, and a healthy dose of humor. See how these guys throw it down. The track is also streamable below.
Back with the heavy droned synth, Dom enlists Tyga and Juicy J to talk about their types of parties — drugs, girls, and of course haters. Filled with one-liners that you would expect from the three rappers this song trumps it’s predecessor. The highlight is when the beat shuts down for Juicy to get trippy until the tambourine (or drum snare) gets the song on it’s feet. All in all it’s a great song to bump on a fall drive.

Kendrick Lamar continues to destroy the hip-hop game letting loose a lyrically powerful track with an old school feel featuring two of his fellow talented Black Hippy members, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock. “The Heart Pt. 3″ is an introspective and emotional cut, on which Lamar and co. reminisce about their rise to fame.
