[FreEP] J.A.E - 'Verses For !llmind'

Artwork By: Ladale Ally
While !llmind's musical greatness should never go unrecognized, J.A.E provides the ultimate salute by recording an entire mixtape over the producer's most recent project, !.B.F.K.W. (!llmind Beats For Kanye West). Stream + download Verses For !llmind below, and check out J.A.E's personal !llmind story below:
!llmind is one of my favorite producers of all time. When I met him awhile back at the Skyzoo "Frisbees" video shoot, I remember inquiring about some production and him stating something about a budget. However, at the time I hadn't even put out my first mixtape yet and was clueless to what a budget was. When a friend of mine played the production on #BFKW I was blown away and felt the need to pay homage to one of the greatest to ever do it. Thank you !llmind
Hourglass Picks: "Rolling Stones," "Fast Forward," "Accept Us," "Mr. Blog[*ahem* wom]an"

Melo-X - "Handle It" (Prod. by M-Phazes)

What originally began as a remix of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Love," G.U.E. favorite MeLo-X opted to make "Handle It" into an original record for his upcoming GOD:Lo-fi project which drops on March 26th.

Tapping Australian producer M-Phazes, the Brooklyn musician focuses solely on the vocals as he raps to a woman with a way with her body.

French Montana ft. Nicki Minaj, Wyclef Jean, Edley Shine & Elephant Man - "Freaks" (DJ Suss One Remix)

French Montana's "Freaks" is undoubtedly a hit record, but when I listen to it I can't help but think that it's missing a key reggae element. Thankfully DJ Suss One recruited producer JButtah and respected artists of the genre (Wyclef, Edley Shine and Elephant Man) to refix "Freaks" allowing Nicki Minaj's verse to lead the way.

Nicki Minaj may be a judge on one of TV's most family friendly reality shows, but that's not stopping her from showing some A LOT of skin on the visuals to French Montana's latest single "Freaks."

Skyzoo - "Grew Up On Kool-Aid"

In my opinion no Skyzoo verse should be free, but thankfully for us the NY emcee doesn't seem to mind dropping off a freestyle now and then. As part of his weekly series Band Practice, Skyzoo takes me back to my smiley-face "ohhh yeah" cup days with "Grew Up On Kool-Aid."

Hit the jump to hear last week's track, "Phone Calls." Skyzoo's amazing album A Dream Deferred is in stores now!

Angel Haze - "On The Edge" + Azealia Banks - "No Problems" (Diss Records)

Yesterday as I was minding my business sipping my morning tea, I noticed that Azealia Banks and Angel Haze were having quite the Twitter exchange. The flame that started it all?

Subliminal diss to Angel Haze, a fellow upcoming female emcee who relocated to NYC from Detroit? Perhaps; and she took it as such. A few "you ain't got no edges" jokes and claims of sexual rejection later, Angel drops "On The Edge," a diss track she claims she wrote in 20 minutes after the back and forth.
