Frank Ocean - Acura Integurl (Odd Future/Def Jam?, 2011) Elegant piano keys and Lil Wayne quotes, this song sounds left-field even by Frank Ocean’s standards. However, who’s to say what standards to hold Ocean by at this point in his career? All that matters is how good this is.

Lil B - Bitch Mob: Respect Da Bitch Vol. 1
Lil B - Bitch Mob: Respect Da Bitch Vol. 1 (Datpiff, 2011) Bitch Mob is the first mixtape from Lil B since last year’s Everything Based to lean towards his Cooking/Swag music.

Now it’s completely available for download down at Livemixtapes. I’ve written about Fonzworth in the past, but unfortunately it appears Fonzworth is only good on a posse cut where his character can shine while...
”we talk every night, she cry to me about her guy/and if we text I get...– Tyler, The Creator on Her (XL, 2011) just from this 30 second amazon snippet, I have the feeling that Tyler’s Her maybe the most emotionally devestating love-song in Tyler’s catalog yet. Gone is the rage and blood-thirst, and all that appears to be left (or at least from what we hear)...
