Action Bronson - Big, Bad, & Dangerous ft. Smoke DZA (prod. 183rd)

Once upon a time in the small town of Mystic, Connecticut came there were 5 talented musicians.

Game - Daytona 500 [500 Bars]

Seems like Game didn't think "Uncle Otis" was enough, so he decided to let go of a 21-minute track over Hov and Ye's Watch The Throne track. Just like Game's 400 Bars over "Exhibit C", I'm hoping we get a Skeemix that includes multiple instrumentals so we don't have to listen to the same, redundant beat the whole time.

Sir Michael Rocks (of The Cool Kids) - Cell Dope [Video]

With already two full projects released this year, Mikey Rocks is getting ready to drop a third by the end of the year. The newest one will be called Special Edition Grand Master Deluxe and "Cell Dope" serves as the first single from that project.
