The Christmas-coming of Beyzus wiped out just about anything else on the internet for days.
All in mixtape
5 girls to pay attention to: Savages, Anika, Thought Forms, Hella Better Dancer, Marnie Stern
It's drop day! "Oolala, Mazeltov, what can I say?" Le1f takes the lead in New York club rap with his own particular brand of gusto and guffow-inducing lyrics on the follow-up to "Dark York": "Fly Zone". The beats are .. well ... fly ... and I love it that in 2013 I can download a solid hiphop mixtape of an MC that pronounces "soft" as "sowft" and hands me hooks like "get your bunz up" to compliment my hefty collection of "get your gunz up" tracks.

Attention. Trend report 2013. Learn Korean choruses. Sing about doodoo. Ride around with plastic titties on your BMX. In short:

Leave your $tress behind in favour of some existential trappin', rappin' and ponderin' life, swaying in the sound-built hammock that is the LU$H L¥F€ Mixtape by Captain Franco.
A week ago, as I arrived in an empty office and put on my headphones, three swallows dipped past my window.

A change in the air. I sat still for a moment and watched them.
Clams Casino is probably on of the hottest producer of the moment, launching A$SAP ROCKY into the hip hop stratosphere and saving Lana Del Rey from the brink of hipster oblivion in less than a year. His instrumental mixtapes are still essential downloads (stream his mastered tape after the jump), and now there's a smooth 25-minute mix of his own classics and some unreleased gems to add to the legacy. Originally delivered to the doorstep of Benj B's BBC 1 radio show, now ready for your ripping pleasure.
