Well Folk,

I don’t know bout you…but from what I can tell, there are OODLES of people (including 80% of my entourage) just gettin outta bed from Wednesday night. So if you’re lucky/unlucky enough to fall into that category, here’s a bunch of music to veg out too.

First up we have the entire compiled Month of Madness by Roc-A-Fella’s version of Ghostface, Freeway.

If you’re not sure what this is, Freeway set out to write and record a track for everyday during the month of December (Kind of like a compressed version of Crooked I’s Hip Hop Weekly series that he did last year).  Anyways, as tedious as it may seem to go through 32 tracks (no matter WHO the artist is), there are definitely some dope verses and nasty beats on this.  Is it too much….perhaps….but a fun project nonetheless.  It’s like actually getting to see a rapper PRACTICE.  Hopefully this means his next album’ll be Bananas.

From the fine people at OnSmash & IllRoots….Click flick to DL.

…And speaking of Crooked I and practicing….

For the past however many years (especially the past 2 or 3) there’s been a LOT of talk surrounding Dr. Dre’s version of Chinese Democracy, Detox.

Word is that the album features 50, Bishop Lamont, Em, a reunion with Snoop (the last one being Imagine off Snoop’s Blue Carpet Treatment with D’Angelo) and even collabs with DJ Quik (which excites me very much.) And well, as many of us wait to see if the good Dr. can return to the strength of Chronic 2001 (because, yes, no matter what’s happened since I am STILL a fan), here are some unofficial leaks from the album.

*Note none of these songs have Dr. Dre rapping on them, but they have his Verses (a.k.a. the Ghostwriter spitting).

Crack A Bottle Feat. Eminem – The 1st and 3rd verses are ‘Dr. Dre’ verses.

Say Dr. Dre (written by Crooked I) – This is a solo joint (sorry but I don’t have the mpfree for this one).

DJ Quik spillin his guts about Detox.

And finally, a 20 min interview with Dre’s current muse (outside of Em and Snoop of course) Bishop Lamont talking about the record, as well as dissing Game and all that other stuff you gossip folk love.
