Ladies and gentlemen, Lil Wayne is back in the booth…and it's like he never left. The new single is called 6'7" and ft Cory Gunz. Check it out.

Click here to download. Also, here’s Wayne’s first interview post-prison.  He called into DJ Drama’s radio show on Shade 45 to discuss the new single, video and many other things:

Diddy's Ass on the Floor is one of the doper songs on Dirty Money's Last Train to Paris album. Check out the video.

This song continues the “dancefication” of hip-hop, but it works.  Check out NahRight’s take on the video and the trials of blogging here. http://www.vimeo.com/17795826.

Rapsody keeps it 100% real with Honda Accord Music ft Skyzoo and Thee Tom Hardy. She can't afford Maybachs (or Aston Martins) but the music is dope.

She and her crew bless a 9th Wonder track.  This one is for the underground. http://www.vimeo.com/17715023.

Swizz Beatz' Monster Mondays have almost made up for the lack of G.O.O.D. Fridays. Almost…Check out We Keep It Rockin' with Maino, Jadakiss, Jim Jones and Joell Ortiz.

They go in on the classic beat used by the Ultramagnetic MCs on Funky and then 2Pac and Dr. Dre on California Love. Click here to download.  Here’s California Love

Here's some new music from Uncle Snoop Dogg ft Hustle Boys, who sound like the 2010 version of Tha Dogg Pound. The video is called For the Good Times. [fbshare]

This one looks like it was funded by Landy cognac but the music is cool, so it’s all good. Check the comparison to Tha Dogg Pound: The West Side is

What would Black Sabbath, Jay-Z, Ludacris, Eminem, Jane's Addiction, Cali Swag District and Aaliyah sound like if they did a song together? Kinda like this…

Oh, and The Brothers Johnson, Dorrough, N.W.A., David Banner, The Ramones, Missy, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, and The Doors also jumped on the track.  Confused?  Check this out: This

The good Dr. Dre dropped Kush after an 11-year absence and it was like he was never gone (in the best possible way). Now here's the video.

Snoop also hasn’t sounded this dope in years.  What is it about Dre beats that brings out the best in him? .

There are no more G.O.O.D. Fridays but that won't stop CyHi The Prynce from putting out G.O.O.D. Music. Check him out on Law's song called Honor.

This one is more smoothed out but CyHi still murders it.  Laws is pretty dope too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOsHq-r0E2I Click here to download..

What if Reasonable Doubt had been a mixtape? Would Jay-Z still be 11 albums deep and considered the greatest of all time if In My Lifetime, Vol. 1 had been his first official "album?"

Certainly, his potential and talent still would have been present, but there’s a big question mark as to whether the public would have given him a second chance or whether

Curren$y's album Pilot Talk 2 came and went so now it on to the next one. This freestyle over Rick Ross and Kanye's Live Fast, Die Young is not a bad preview for his upcoming mixtape.

The song is called Daze of Thunder and the mixtape will be titled Return to the Winners’ Circle. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rYC9prqTfw Click here to download..

It's so dope to see Redman back. His album Reggie is in stores now. Check out his new song Cheerz and show some love.

Redman feat. Ready Roc & Melanie Rutherford – “Cheerz” (prod. by M-Phazes) by Diamond Music Group Cheerz features Ready Roc and Melanie Rutherford.  Click here to buy the album.  If

There's a reason Jay-Z (the G.O.A.T.) signed Jay Electronica. He's incredible. Check out Jay E's tribute to the mighty GURU. The song is called Jazzmatazz but the sample is The Beatle's Yesterday.

The intro is crazy long but it’s worth the wait: Click here to download.  Here’s the classic Beatles track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwS_YDzxH3M  .

Moment 4 Life is probably the dopest song on Nicki Minaj's album. Check out her performance of it on George Lopez's show.

George Lopez is actually starting to rival Jimmy Fallon for dope hip-hop performances. Nicki did this solo, but the original with Drake is even (just a little bit) hotter.  Pink

B.o.B. is back with a new video and mixtape. No more pop ish. He's strictly spittin'. Check out The Watchers (video) and No Genre (mixtape).

Click here to listen to and download the mixtape No Genre.  It’s aptly-titled…The tracklist is below: 01. Beast Mode (Prod. by Infinity) 02. So So (Prod. by Jim Jonsin) 03.

It's been another slow night for new hip-hop so let's go back (a bit) to a dope artist who never got his proper shine. Ohmega Watts always brought heat. Check out Model Citizen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffMvaFCbaJ4 If you like this, you will definitely feel his album The Find. It’s incredibly hard to find full tracks from that album to stream, but you can listen to

Blu continues to rep hard for the underground. Check out this performance of a new song called EaseYourMind.

Here’s another Blu song (with Exile) called In Remembrance from one of my favorite albums of 2007 called Below the Heavens. Both the lyrics and the track are on point.

I slept on Show Tufli a bit, but better late than never…Check out the video for 1st Class Ticket.

Show Tufli has an interesting story.  When he was 17 he had a stroke and was paralyzed for 40 days.  He overcame that and is now trying to conquer the

It's a shame Big Boi's album didn't get the type of attention it deserved. It was up to Outkast standards. Check out the video for The Train, Pt. 2.

Sir Lucious Left Foot…The Son of Chico Dusty is in stores now.  And here’s how Big Boi gets down live (Follow Us ft Vonnegutt):   .

Curren$y's Hold On is another quality cut. This one has a different track from the version on his album Pilot Talk 2 which is in stores now. It's worth picking up.

Redman's mixtape dropped earlier in the week. Lite 1 Witcha Boy ft Method Man and Bun B is from his upcoming album and it's got that flame on it. Check it out.

Let's keep it O.G. for a minute. Redman dropped a new mixtape today. If you're a fan you'll dig it.

This one is just a warm up before he drops his new album called Reggie. He starts the mixtape with a new addition to the Soopaman series: Click here to

Cee Lo Green's singing is dope no doubt but remember when he used to be a rapper? Here's a reminder.

And here’s his latest (singing) video for his song called It’s OK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGe3GFWEO2I&feature=player_embedded.

Sean Price is the latest to rock the Rising to the Top track on Sabado Gigante. He does it justice. Check it out.

The Bullits are not hip-hop…but Jay Electronica is…and he kicks a verse on their track called Close Your Eyes. Check out the video.

Another cool thing about The Bullits?  Lucy Liu (from Charlie’s Angels) is one of the members of the group and is on the vocals.  You can learn (a tiny bit)

Joell Ortiz and Fat Joe go IN on One Shot (Killed for Less). This joint is fire.

This is some East Coast gangsta sh*t. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxBJGvKWotc Click here to download..

Here's another hot one from 1982 (Statik Selektah and Termanology) ft Ghetto and Ea$y Money. This one's called Shut it Down (Virgin MegaStore Boys) ft Ghetto and Ea$y Money.

Statik Selektah’s track features a nice flip of one of Chante Moore’s quiet storm classics as one of the samples.  For more on 1982, including a free EP, click here.

Ever heard of Money Making Jam Boys? No? They are Black Thought's "new" side project, but keep it on the low… Check out their video for Judgment Day.

Jim Jones sounds like he's been listening to KiD CuDi…A LOT (like everyday, all day). Check out Perfect Day ft Juelz Santana.

What do you think?  Not a bad look but very unexpected. Click here to download..

KiD CuDi seems a lot happier when he's perfoming. Maybe Mr. Rager is just for the studio. Check out his performance of REVOFEV on the Conan O'Brien Show.

It’s pretty dope that he’s wearing a Prince shirt too.Speaking of Prince, in the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, ?uestlove lists his top 10 favorite Prince songs of all

Raheem DeVaughn is one of the dopest singers to ever bless the mic. He's not hip-hop but it's in his roots. The legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff was one of the first to put him on when he was just Raheem. Check out his new mixtape called Jackin' 4 Beats.

Click here to listen to and download the mixtape.  He did indeed jack these beats so most of them will sound familiar to you.  The track list is below.  First,

T.I.'s Poppin' Bottles is the dopest track I've heard off his new album, so far. Not surprisingly, it features Drake.
