The hottest MCs in the game decided to flood the Internet with new music today. There's a snippet of a new Kanye record, another new one from Eminem's Recovery, some Drake that didn't make the album, and tagged up bangers from Jay-Z and Gucci Mane. Not a bad day at all. Check everything out and download below...
SONG: "Monster (Snippet)"
ARTIST: Kanye West f/ Rick Ross
• It may only be a snippet, but it's one minute and four seconds of pure craziness. If this makes the album alongside "Power," consider 'Ye two for two already.
SONG: "You Know, You Know"
• A Kanye West-produced cut that didn't make the album. We don't know why. It's better than some of the stuff that did.
SONG: "It's Alive"
ARTIST: Gucci Mane f/ Swizz Beatz
• There might be more ad-libs than bars on this, but it's dope. Who knew Gucci over a non-Southern producer would go so hard?
ARTIST: Jay-Z f/ Swizz Beats
• This is hot, even the second verse that's supposed to be Diddy's. Oops. Apparently this is a reference track for Last Train to Paris.
