Each day Complex scours the music blogs for 5 fresh songs that you should listen to in our 5 O'Clock Shuffle post. Instead of going crazy trying to keep up with your RSS feeds everyday, just head over to Complex.com to stay up-to-date on important leaks and releases.
It's 5:00 and you already know what we do at this time everyday. Today's Shuffle has a nice mix of new songs. There's a potential single from Missy and Pharrell, and one of the best tracks from Wayne's new mixtape. Then we have a couple underground gems from Jay Electronica and Madvillain. DJ Khaled just dropped another one of his posse cuts too. Surely, there's something on here that interests you. Hit the jump to start listening...
SONG: "Put It On Ya"
ARTIST: Missy Elliott f/ Pharrell & Teyana Taylor
• No confirmation on whether this is a legit single or not, but it sounds like it could be. Missy is back to her old ways, talking in an almost indecipherable language and making it sound dope at the same time.
SONG: "Exhibit C"
ARTIST: Jay Electronica
• The quality is kind of suspect on this radio rip, but Jay Elec kills it hard enough to make it worth listening to. Just Blaze did the beat too, in case you're wondering.
• J. Rocc premiered some new Madvillain material on his radio show last night, and it sounds great, but no MP3 is available for download yet, so all we have is the audio stream from YouTube above. Word is, Doom is gonna start performing some of this new stuff when he hits the road next month.
SONG: "Fed Up"
ARTIST: DJ Khaled f/ Usher, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, & Drake
• Khaled has a new album, Victory, coming out next year and what's a Khaled album without a star-studded first single? Take a listen and see how this stacks up against previous bangers like "We Takin' Ova" and "Brown Paper Bag."
SONG: "Watch My Shoes"
ARTIST: Lil' Wayne
• Not sure if there's anyone left who doesn't have the new Weezy tape, but if you're still holding out, let this track be your motivation to check it out. The link above will send you to a download for the entire mixtape, not just the song.
