Left To Right: Skillz, Royce Da 5'9", Fashawn, Ne-Yo, Esso
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.
Talk about a slow day. Hardly anything new popped up on the blogs today, but we still pulled something together. Skillz dropped his annual rap-up, and guys like Royce Da 5'9" and Fashawn leaked material from upcoming mixtapes. There's nothing particularly crazy to check for, but we'd still recommend giving today's selections a listen. Get started after the jump...
SONG: "2009 Rap-Up"
• It's kind of sad that this guy is only relevant for a few days at the year of every year, but we listen anyway. It's cool to hear about what went down this year, but it's nothing more than what you'd expect.
SONG: "Pick Ma Balls Up"
ARTIST: Royce Da 5'9"
• Something new from Royce off his Bar Exam 3 tape. He goes in over a remade "Drop The World" instrumental.
SONG: "Memory Lane"
• One of the best new rappers of the year comes through with a track from an upcoming project with Green Lantern.
SONG: "Fix Me Up"
• Ah, this guy always has something leaking. Fans can check it out, everyone else can keep it moving.
• Here's the next single off Emilio Sparks's compilation dropping in a few months.
