If you haven’t heard by now, in addition to G.O.O.D. Music, Hit-Boy is also part of his own collective known as Hits Since 87 which comprises of himself, Audio Push and KENT M$NEY. The project was made avilalbe for stream a week early on the new Myspace but earlier today, Young Safe went to Twitter to drop the free download (since people were ripping the online version anyway). The album includes features from Problem , 2 Chainz, Juicy J, Common, Robin Thicke, Cocaine80s, Travi$ Scott and everyone that appears on the cypher.
Rich Hil’s long awaited project, Support Your Local Drug Dealer, dropped earlier today via Noisey. Containing 11 unheard, original tracks, the free album boasters guest features from The Weeknd, Fat Trel, Blended Babies and more. Definitely going to have to add this to the playlist rotation. Roll a couple doobies up and enjoy the full album stream/download link that is available for you below.
District of Columbia standout lyricist and member of the multi-facated super-trio Diamond District (with Oddisee and yU), Uptown XO has finally (almost) dropped his highly anticipated full length album Colour de Grey that completes the saga started with the The Color Grey EP. Produced entirely by AB The Pro, who also features on a few tracks, the debut solo Mello Music Group release also includes Messiah, Docigapom, Benji, Danni and U St. Face. Catch the stream for now on DJ Booth and then cop it when it drops tomorrow.
Possible 2013 XXL Freshman is back with his full length LP, Life Changes. Casey Veggies has stated that this project is not a mixtape but more of a free album. Besides the track “Life$tyle” that he put out, the rest is all brand new unheard material. Featuring Harry Fraud, Dom Kennedy, BJ the Chicago Kid, 1500 or Nothin, Cardiak and The Futuristiks, this project definitely looks promising. Download/stream the free album for yourself.
It’s been awhile since we got a full project from VA’s very own, Nickelus F. Today, he’s back with his full length LP, Vices.

Tis the fucking season, and the creatively inclined members of the hip-hop community have been rolling out some enthused projects for your spinning pleasure during the festive winter season.

Stille of The Nappy Roots, Jerome “Bigfoot” Brailey of Parliament Funkadelic, and former Prince and now Snoop Dogg collaborators Audio Stepchild among many, many others. Although Jonathan Hay has production all over the project, other instrumentals come from Andre Young, Terrance Simpkins, Josh Tifer, Grandmaster Roc Raida of the X-Ecutioners, and Vahaghi. Oh, and lets not forget featured mixing by the likes of Trakksounds. More after the jump.

After releasing a slew of dope singles in the past couple of weeks, Westcoast’s Mibbs, Like and Be Young known collectively as Pac Div return with their new LP, GMB, yesterday. I haven’t personally listened to the full album yet besides the tracks that they leaked themselves, but from what I heard from friends, the album slaps just as much as their last album The Div. I’ve added a album stream uploaded by one of our Chiefers for your listening pleasure. The album includes features from Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Blu and more. And if you’re fuckin’ with it, head over to iTunes and cop the album with their grandma donned on the cover.
What I would consider one of the greatest cover art’s of the year, it’s only right that the Queens rapper/chef Action Bronson & the quirky producer by way of The Alchemist come together to create a free project for the masses. The 14-track project includes features from ScHoolboy Q, Styles P & Roc Marciano among others. The tape is sponsored by the site Noisey, and they were able to do a little write up on the tape so check that out if you’ve got some free time. Roll Up & Enjoy the tunes my fellow Chiefers.
