Smooth Summer Joint
Off her debut studio album, The ArchAndroid, Miss Monáe shows off her diverse talents on this fast-paced track. It’s the perfect song to take your mind off the scorching heat while you’re cruising this summer.

Speaking of Heat
Here’s a joint off of Curren$y’s latest album Pilot Talk. Mos Def does… whatever it is he does… and Mr. Elect adds a nice finishing touch over the smooth production. He may have one of the dumbest names in hip-hop, but Spitta is on top of his game right now!
From the Vault
Nickelus F is constantly underrated, Drake bars are rare these days, and we need more accordions in rap, so when you get all of those together on a track it makes for something special. There’s been a tagged up version of this floating around, so here’s the no-nonsense version.

Caught You Sleeping
While singles off his album like “Shutterbug” and “General Patton” have been getting a lot of praise, this is one song that seems to have been overlooked. André 3000 provides his partner with a thumping beat and Yelawolf continues to impress, utilizing an unorthodox flow to turn this one into some real trunk muzik.
It’s simple. You can never go wrong with The Temptations.
