Although the past week was slower than normal because of Hurricane Sandy making its way up the East Coast, the music world was not without its notable releases. In addition to Meek Mill dropping his long-awaited debut, others took the time to say thank you to their fans with new tracks, free EPs, and mixtapes. A certain Compton, Calif. MC falls into that category, while one Odd Future standout vented his frustrations on a brief, albeit poignant, new cut.
