What sounds like a killer upcoming album...is THE BEAUTIFUL LOSER (THE LEAK) by J-Billion's. I recently spoke to the San Francisco resident about why he chose to leak the album and the reply I got was simple, "I got so much music and only three songs from the leak are making the real album. In actuality this is a whole album for FREE." You can't beat that. He also announced that he is signed as the first artist to RISKY BUSINESS, also a up and coming label out of the Bay Area. Real big things poppin'!!!
Bay Area artist & THUGBOSS Familia J-Billion's single "TOUCHDOWN" off his upcoming album release THE BEAUTIFUL LOSER on AUGUST 4th. This FREE download includes DIRTY, CLEAN, ACAPELLA, & INSTRUMENTAL versions...so DJ'S work with your boy!!!

"After a solid year without an official release, Mes the Jive Turkey returns to the music scene with the help of DJ Fishr Pryce. Their latest mixtape, Stealing Stars, is an action packed mix of brand new songs over (mostly) stolen beats. After sitting and waiting for his producer friends to send him some beats, Mes decided it was taking too long and his ambitions couldn’t allow him to wait any longer. He decided to steal beats from his friends and a few other well known producers in order to create a project that he could be proud of. Knowing that Fishr is always a worthy accomplice in such shenanigans, the two began putting together a list of stolen music and making it their own. This isn’t your normal jacking for beats kinda project, though. Each song becomes something brand new and you can feel the time and effort put into the recreation. This isn’t just taking an already top 40 song and trying to make it better (everyone already loves Jay-Z’s verse, why would you try to rap over his song?). Producers such as PicnicTyme, Rob Viktum, Jake One, S1 & The ARE might be a little upset to find their music has been jacked, but we think they will understand. Now the people who make a few angry guest appearances ranting about the stolen items Mes & Fishr have made off with in the past, that’s a different story."

This "Kid" is sick! This lil' e.p. is just a preview to The Kid Daytona's debut album, Come Fly With Me. What he did was take one of hip hop's most famous samples, (Bob James, Nautilus), and have his crew of producers flip it in their own way for each track. It's really amazing how different each track is. Get this now.

The Kid Daytona, Kidz in the Hall, Kid Cudi, Cool Kids... It seems that the Kids are the new Lil's haha!

Yesterday, the homie Murs dropped The Science on y'all, so today we figured why not go ahead and drop some more science. A little over a year ago Blue Note Records dropped an album called Droppin' Science which features the greatest hip hop samples taken from the Blue Note back catalog. J.Rocc from the World Famous Beat Junkies took those tracks, and flipped them for a really dope mixtape. Being that the album dropped over a year ago, I'm not sure how new this mixtape is, but who cares, it's fire. You can cop the album Droppin' Science here.

And even though the video is the unofficial version, it is Official. Ya dig?
p.s. Make sure you also check out the video he did for DJ Shadow back in 2006 for This Time.
It appears the homies over at Antiquiet have interviewed the man behind the video. Check out Antiquiet's Q&A With Mykola Dosenko. WORD.

Just in time for the weekend, ThugBoss brings you a brand new mixtape to make the weekend that much better.

So basically, this mixtape is thirty tracks of free, G.O.O.D. Music. Need I say more? Make sure you cop the album "Finally Famous" when it finally drops and holler at Big Sean on his myspace.

Diabolical Fun (Aesop Rock in studio) from ill poetic on Vimeo.
Officer Ricky is the boss round here. I feel dude!!! His bond with J.U.S.T.I.C.E League is so soulful when they get together. Im definately going to buy this album when it drops. This is Maybach Music 2 feat Kanye West, T-Pain, and Lil Wayne. It's like Ross is the inventer of Grown Man's Hip-Hop.
The homie Fishr Pryce hooked us up with a special mix he just laid down for his trip out to London for a few shows beginning April 15th-18th with 'Diabolical Fancy' (Picnic and Headkrack) and the 'Bodega Brovas' (Headkrack, Travii and Keynote) & DJ Niro.
This mix has a good selection of hip hop classics. Have a listen below and download or embed it if you like.
Okay, so the homies over at ITE (aka In This Economy?) have inspired us a little bit here at ThugBoss. They ran a post on Monday called The Beat Tape Bailout, which basically shed some light on some great music that was out there on the web to be had for free. Free? Yes free. Well man, since then, they either missed a few, or maybe a few more joints have been dropped. How amazing is it that we live in a time where all it takes is a decent internet connection to get all the free (legal) music we could ever wish for? One thing is for sure, if we are in a recession, these artists surely feel our pain. So whether you can't afford to buy any new CDs, or just wanna hear some new and very fresh music, I suggest you continue reading.
I guess you can call this the Beat Tape Bailout part II.

Jon Hope is a very gifted MC hailing from Rhode Island. Here is his new EP that he is just giving away to us for free. What recession? Get it!

Diz Gibran | Soon You'll Understand
"On their debut album, Los Angeles MC Diz Gibran and Queens, New York producer Moonshine team up to create an unparalleled mix of style and substance. Brought to you by top lifestyle clothing brand, Crooks & Castles." -GetItHere
Mr Peter Parker | Asher Roth's Day Off
I guess you could say that ThugBoss has been all up on Asher's bozack as of late, but what can we say? The kid is dope. If you have been procrastinating, then this tape is a perfect refresher course for all the stuff that wasn't on his Greenhouse Effect mixtape. For the fans, there should be enough remixes/blends to hold you over for 12 days, until the album drops.

DJ SELECT | Summertime Selections | Vol 1
The funkiest mix of the whole bunch. This is a raw mix from Dallas' own DJ Select. This is the one you put on for that first party of the summer. You can also catch him at various clubs during the week (if you live in Dallas). Follow Select on Twitter, or check out his blog here.
Vohn Beatz | A Child's Painting
Now, we have 11 year old prodigy/the future of all that is beatmaking... Mr. Vohn Beatz. He is the 11 (maybe 12 now) year old son of Hip Hop super producer S-1 (aka Symbolic One) of Strange Fruit Project. Like his father, this kid is amazing with the beats. This tape has many guest appearances ranging from Headkrack, Picnic, Hi-Tek, Braille and many more. I'm not even gonna say that for an eleven year old whatever... for a man any age, VohnBeatz puts it down. This kid is AMAZING.
U.N.I. | Ro Blvd | A Love Supreme
Just like every other drop in this post Y-O and Thurz come through with some amazing (and did I mention free?) music. This is a true must cop. So basically go to the site and do whatever it takes to get this album. I gave them my email on general principal...
Kanye West | Lost Songs | Vol 2
"Some more obscure Kanye West features and productions - some I'm not even familiar with such as the Hot Karl track, Black Pegasus, etc. Big thanks to Artutabr and Dani!"
Fail Whale: A Tribute
ILLROOTS.com put this tape together as a tribute to Twitter's many failures this past month, hence the "Fail Whale" graphics.
"Jacques, Andrea and yours truly put together this little mixtape while Twitter was having some issues over the past few days.
Filled with exclusive tracks from XV, Outasight, Harlem’s Cash, Jon Hope, Nero, Esso, J.Rocwell, Keelay & Zaire, P. Casso, Shawn Chrystopher, Evidence and more."
Happy downloading/listening people. Don't forget where we got the idea from and visit in-this-economy.com.
-this post is a work in progress, so if you see a new tape pop out of now where, don't just stand there, GRAB IT!
disclaimer - (this is not the Slim Shady that us "true heads" learned to love, but more of an Eminem in between "Slim Shady LP and Eminem Show". Hopefully the album is a little better, and no where near the monstrosity that Encore was.)
I strongly suggest that you watch the video at least twice to catch everyone that Em is going at. Why don't we start a list in the comments? Nice to have you back Mr. Shady.

Peep the accent: Tembaland jayked muia beet!
LOL!!!!! Timbo the thief!!!!
I can be all day with these vidz but my question is...why are they just coming forward now? Timbo is cold on them beats son! I know he's heard almost everywhere. Why are they doing him like this now?
After giving his new beat tape a good listen, it is obvious that this man is from another planet. He now resides in Dallas, Texas and is at the top of his game. The self proclaimed "Beat Fanatic" has been hard at work, proving that he is one of the nation's (and Texas') hardest working producers. With that said, he is blessing the world with a gift... A sneak peak of how his mind works. With all that said, Rob Viktum presents to you... "Snack Pack Volume One". Take my word for it, or shit, just listen... this tape is full of bangers! Producers take notice! It's time to step your game up. Rappers, movie producers, commercial makers, etc. you can contact Rob Vik at email@example.com , or just hit him up on his Twitter.
Download | Rob Viktum - Snack Pack Vol. 1
The song is a brand new release in Germany by the artist know as Sharam, and is off of his recent album "Get Wild". Cudi's talent really stands out on this joint, as he rides the beat with none other than country legend, Patsy Cline. Get it!

SXSW has been in full swing since March 13, but the music festivities have finally begun. Plenty of dope artists on the roster including one of my personal faves, Wildchild performing tonight at Back Alley Social (303 W 5th St) at 9:30pm.
There's other shows tonight with performances by Cage, Asher Roth, Kid Sister, Mr. Lif, DJ Shadow, Crew54, Mickey Factz, and several others. The only thing is figuring out which venues you wanna run to and which shows to catch.
Also Gucci is currently filming "Make the Trap Say AYE" (Remix) video feat. Cam'Ron.
