“The Recipe” – Kendrick Lamar ft. Dr. Dre

 

Possibly the best rapper in the game right now and his mentor – Kendrick and Dre, respectively – drop a track together. Oddly, Dre’s flow in this one sounds surprisingly similar to Kendrick….. But I’m not claiming ghost writing or anything.

Anyways, it’s a Dre beat, so you know the production is great, and any verse that sounds like Kendrick (or is Kendrick) is amazing, so the verse are sweet. The hook may have left some to be desired, but that’s all good. This is presumably a single off of Kendrick’s upcoming album, “Good Kid in a Mad City”. Download the track here, and check out the lyrics over on RapGenius.

 

Download Link: Mac Miller – “Macadelic” Mixtape

Mac Miller has truly put together a great work of art. His newest mixtape which dropped today – which includes features from the likes of Lil’ Wayne, Cam’ron, and Kendrick Lamar – is mostly album material. Personally, I wasn’t exactly this type of mixtape. In all honesty, I expected Macadelic to be just a lot of filler tracks. I was pleasantly surprised though. Download the mixtape here.

XV’s “The Yellow Brick Road to SXSW” Mixtape

The leader of the Squarians sent his faithful followers a new mixtape featuring all his most recent songs and a couple new songs. Vizzy, as always, killed every track on here. Every verse he spits is littered with punchlines and his great flow. Download the tape here.
