The deluge of news and clips after Phife Dawg’s passing shouldn’t be a surprise. He was a beloved figure from a classic group whose lyrics touched people around the world. What IS surprising, however, is this lovely gem courtesy of Tim Westwood. Tim let loose an unreleased Phife freestyle from 1999, featuring Madlib and Wildchild. The freestyle has the late rapper going off the head for a couple minutes, stumble free. Rap purists should get a kick out of this one.

T-Pain is a Tallahassee legend. Though he’s seem to have fallen from grace, nobody can take away the music he’s made or the impact he’s had on the game. As such, it’s always great to see Pain back in the studio making the type of music he does best. “Hundred Mo Dolla$” is perfect for late night club visits and definitely a feel good party jam.

Royce Da 5’9’s name has been all over the place as of late, as he’s gearing up to release his new album Layers. In the meantime this latest joint, “Savages,” is from the EP that’ll release before the album, Tabernacle:Trust The Shooter. This song is trademark Royce as the song contains pop-culture punchlines, heavy lyricism, and an out of this world flow. He sounds as sharp as he’s ever been.
