SONG: "Like Me"
ARTIST: Lloyd f/ Bun B.
• As he's shooting the video for Young Money's next single, "Bed Rock," Young Lloyd drops this smooth and breezy ditty featuring the other king of the south, Bun B. This guy's been droppin' some heat lately, now that he's a free agent. Someone needs to sign this dude. We're lookin' at you, Weezy.
SONG: "Hear My Cry"
ARTIST: Ludacris f/ Jennifer Hudson
• Luda's back! Last week we heard "Get Low," which had us happy Luda was returning back to his old, jovial self. But then he drops this dope introspective collabo with Jennifer Hudson and we're reminded this guy is once again hunting for Grammys. At least it's much better than "Runaway Love."
• If you haven't noticed, we ride with Pill around here (interview coming soon!). The latest Atlanta sensation leaks another gem off his upcoming 4075: The Refill mixtape. This time he hijacks Kanye's "Diamonds" beat and goes nuts.
ARTIST: Matias Aguayo
• Electronica singer/producer Matias Aguayo describes his music as "for the city and for the night," so you can understand why we're inclined to like him. He recently (as in last week) dropped his latest (and best) album to date (Ay, Ay, Ay). Here's one of the album's standout tracks. Hit the link to download and read an interview he did with the Fader fam.
ARTIST: 50 Cent
• If you didn't know, 50's upcoming album Before I Self Destruct leaked. However, for some reason, Curtis doesn't seem to be that upset about it. Maybe because this album shits on Curtis? Who knows. All we know is this track goes hard. Head on over to Nah Right to peep the song's video, which dropped today.
