As a black Friday treat, we’ve received the much anticipated release of Erykah Badu’s new mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone. This legendary soul singer has mostly remained quiet since her last major release back in 2010.
Erykah surprised everyone with an unexpected feature from none other than Outkast’s Andre 3000 on "Hello," who is also the father of her child. Besides "Hello" Erykah has remained incredibly elusive with her lack of new releases. In addition to getting Andre involved, Erykah did a remix of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” titled “Cel U Lar Device” and actually welcomed Drake into the studio to work alongside her.
The 11-track album is a pleasant and relaxing listen from start to finish as she blends her soulful vocals with hip-hop instrumentation and psychedelic soundscapes for a sound that Erykah dubs as “TRap & B.” Her mixtape is currently available to stream on iTunes music until 12/4 where it will become available via other outlets. Stream the project below via Datpiff and enjoy.
Swedish producer DJ Sam Feldt, who we helped first put on the map through a series of typical house styled remixes, has made a global name for himself this year with breakout singles, follow up remixes, and toured along with Kygo in addition to his own headline shows. Today Sam keeps fans happy with a brand new hour long mixtape. This one titled "Dwarrelen" is to celebrate the fall season and has an amazing collection of refreshing deep house songs and warm tropical house hits for the upcoming colder months. We hear some unreleased tracks including a remix of Ellie Goulding's new single amongst many more. Listen before and enjoy!

Word about a collaborative mixtape between Future and Drake has been circling the internet and it turns out the rumors are true! 2015 has proven to be an epic year for hip-hop as traditional album rollouts seem to have gone out the window with new approaches taking over. Drake seemingly broke the internet earlier this year with his surprise album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, which is the first album released this year to go platinum.
We couldn’t be more excited for What A Time To Be Alive as these two previously showed off their obvious chemistry on Future’s “Where Ya At” from his recent album Dirty Sprite 2. It's undeniable that these are two of the biggest current rappers, and they've now teamed up for one of the year's biggest releases. This new album includes 11 tracks and you can stream them all below with the full tracklist below and pick up your copy at 8pm EST when it drops on iTunes according to Drake's instagram. Enjoy

There's something about Young Thug that's bizarrely intriguing. From his cross dressing to his incredibly catchy and mostly indistinguishable lyrcis, this Lil Wayne inspired rapper's ad-libs are as hilarious as his fashion style.
From first being put on the map by Birdman and Lil Wayne, to being a part of the Rich Gang crew with Rich Homie Quan & Birdman, Thugger has had some huge success establishing his name. One of Young Thug’s most recognizable recent tracks to date was his feature on Jaime XX’s “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times),” which has gone on to become a cross-genre summer anthem.
There is no word about the pushed back release date for his debut album with the unpronounceable name Hy!£UN35 (formerly set for August 28th), but today we get his latest mixtape Slime Season in full, to both stream and download for free.
Regardless of his public feud with Lil Wayne, we interestingly hear him featured on the tapes' lead single "Take Kare." This 18-track mixtape also has features from Quavo & Offset (of Migos), Young Ralph, and Peewee Longway. Grab the free download here and enjoy!
