Download: Blaq Poet "Ain't Nuttin' Changed (Queensbridge to California Remix)"

Queensbridge MC Blaq Poet went bi-costal with this remix (the original of which appears on The Blaqprint) when he enlisted L.A.-based rhyme slingers MC Eiht and Young Malay to contribute. The latter two rap some brand new verses for the track, while the beats, courtesy of DJ Premiere, remain firmly intact. The Blaqprint will drop June 30 on Year Round

Download: Memory Tapes "Bicycle"

Label: Acephale

One lone producer from New Jersey recently joined his two personalities—Memory Cassette and Weird Tapes—to form Memory Tapes. If this track is anything to go by, the result is rather impressive. The melodic, haunted, and somewhat paranoid track "Bicycle," an amalgamation of guitar chords, synth-laden basslines, cowbells, choruses, and a host of other sounds, is the first single off the forthcoming Memory Tapes album.
