Here's the third installment in QuESt's Fear Not Failure series leading up to the release of his highly anticipated new project of the same name. This time the Miami native goes in over Adele's "Someone Like You" instrumental and as expected he effortlessly makes it his own.
Spitta continues to work at a prodigious level as he teams up with one of my all-time favorite emcees Styles P to release his second free project of the year. Jets fool...

I'm late on this, but have no fear the new ScHoolboy/Ab-Soul video finally made its way into the Winner's Circle. This banger is off Q's latest project Habits & Contractions.
Two of the South's most promising up and comers Scotty & SL Jones link up in Decatur, Atlanta to film some visuals for their smooth, certified country rap collab. Once SXSW is over Scotty & DJ Burn One (cameo in the Husslin crew above) will begin recording the follow up to Scotty's breakout debut Summer Dreams.
Detroit native and Chuck Inglish's cousin Boldy James went and dropped a classic debut mixtape with Trapper's Alley (Pros & Cons) in 2011 and now looks to take things even further on with his sophomore project. The tape stands at a whopping 26 songs and boasts production & features from the usual suspects Chuck, Sir Michael, The O'My's & Blended Babies. Concreatures unite.

Inglewood's Skeme makes an appropriate, NSFW video in a strip club for "Swaggin" off his latest mixtape Before My Next Statement. This song/video combo is pure ignorance, which is a department that Skeme seems to thrive in quite well.
No flaunting of money, no dismantling of Maybach's, just two of the game's biggest rapper's taking it back to their native Atlanta for a refreshingly humble music video...although it does get a little crazy towards the end. Off Tip's F*ck Da City Up mixtape.
I missed Mardi Gras this year but 2011's festivities was one of the best trips of my life it's crazy to see an entire city partying in the streets. When Spitta and his crew aren't traveling the globe performing they still reside in their hometown New Orleans and took to the streets to film some Mardi Gras themed visuals for two tracks from Here. Jets fool...

Since publicly denouncing his debut album Rolling Papers, Wiz is somewhat returning to his roots musically and you can tell he's excited because he's releasing these songs fresh out of the studio. Today, different combinations of Wiz, Juicy J & Chevy Woods (Memphis Bleek's rival for highest ranking weed carrier in history) result in 3 new songs for the Taylors. Wiz's new mixtape Taylor Alderdice is on the way.

Here's yet another new song that somehow didn't make the cut for his Savage Journey To The American Dream. Considering songs like this didn't make the cut I think it's safe to say this project is set to be a monster.
Download: Stalley - Midnight Satori
The Slaughterhouse machine forms like voltron over some Boi-1da and T-Minus production. This song will appear on Crooked I's upcoming mixtape Psalm 82:6 dropping March 8th.
Download: Slaughterhouse - Monsters In My Head
Las Vegas rapper/producer/horror flick aficionado Trade Voorhees is back with his latest offering and as expected it's straight fire. Trade already has an impressive number of acclaimed, album quality mixtapes under his belt and this is another welcome addition to the collection.

Here's the first leak from Boldy's upcoming project Consignment: Favor For A Favor dropping February 27th. The Concreature's breakout mixtape Trapper's Alley: Pro's & Con's is one of my favorites of 2011 so I'm really looking forward to this new tape.

Planet Asia grabs fellow Fresno resident Fashawn and highly underrated Michigan emcee Willie The Kid for this anti-rapper anthem and is obviously a lyrical onslaught. Planet's Black Belt Theatre hits stores February 28th.

Congrats to Playboy Tre on the birth of his first son and stay tuned for his free album, Patron & Instrumentals, dropping soon.
Two of the most outspoken stoners in hip hop finally link up over some Cardo production to trade verses about the come up and building an empire step by step. Props to Domo for taking advantage of the situation and knowing when to bring your best verse he held his own against the Taylor Gang general. Now can anyone tell me what the hell is going with Earl?!
Mr. Godson has always been hit or miss with me and I can't lie he got pretty nice on this Common beat. I like Fred's unique rhyme schemes and lyricism he drops a refreshing amount of punchlines with double entendres flying left and right at you like the Matrix. City Of God is out now.
While putting the finishing touches on Fear Not Failure (release date to be announced soon), Miami's QuESt linked up with Crooked Engine to put together a four part video series to get us hyped up for the project. In the first installment QuESt goes in over The Black Keys' "Ten Cent Pistol".

French Montana and his crew the Coke Boyz recently took their talents to Cosmic Kev's The Come Up Show to count money and rap for 10 minutes. I'm no Montana stan but this is dope. Props to Best Of Both Offices.
I am dropping off a track to you today that embodies where I am at mentally as I continue to grow and continue down this path. It is entitled "P-Rare (BetterDays)" and it encompasses my belief that the future is now in my Creator's hands and its all up to me to continue to push on in whatever direction is the best for me in regards to my music.
Taylor Gangs own Mr LVLY$L comes back around the mountain on some Sephiroth shit with his newest video for "Atlantis" featured on his upcoming project LVLZEBRA, set to drop on the 6th of this month.
Trae The Truth - I'm On 2.0 f. Big K.R.I.T., Jadakiss, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B., Tyga, Gudda Gudda, Bun B & Mark Morrison
I really liked the original version and the Street King called even more favors for 2.0 this is a staggering lineup for a song, particularly Trae feeling the need to add Tyga and Gudda Gudda.
Download: Trae The Truth - I'm On 2.0
The criminally slept on Alabama duo let's loose a track, produced by the equally underrated Block Beattaz, that didn't make the final cut for their new album Island.

After much delay and anticipation Young Krizzle unveils the first leak off his upcoming project 4EvaNaDay. The song's deep and soulful as we've come to expect from Krit and I'm really loving this artwork. Here's what the man himself had to say...
the 1st song i wanted 2 release from #4evaNaDay is called Boobie Miles. Its about over coming all the obstacles that block your dreams, the sacrifices that come with how hard you have to go to obtain your goal, giving your all no matter what the situation, the only difference between a winner N a loser is a winner plays until he wins – K.R.I.T.
