Preparing for his upcoming album, “Fashionably Late 2″, Boston native Gio Dee releases visuals for “Saturdayz.” This is one of the tracks that didn’t make it onto his freshman tape back in 2011, “This Is Only The Beginning.” “Saturdayz” was shot entirely down in Philly during a recent performance down in the Keystone State and also some scenes were shot down in Atlanta during A3C. This is a must listen!

Free Download: G4SHI – No Favors (Prod. Myles William)
The homie Myles William never stops working, whether he’s in the studio with Reefa and Irv Gotti producing records for the likes of Ja Rule, Maino, French Montana, and more, he also takes the time to work with up and coming artists like Brooklyn Albanian rapper G4shi. “No Favors” is a dark hip-hop record where G4shi vents of not doing favors for anyone anymore, explicitly saying “real friends don’t count favors,” ever since his small come up. Big up Myles, keep blessing us with dope beats, and working with talented MCs. This is a must listen and a must download!

If you missed it a few days back, the Justin Timberlake “TKO” remix is one for the ages. Featuring three of the hottest young emcees (young of course being used relatively as Pusha T is 36) the song puts a more “hood” spin on the original JT Experience track. In my personal and professional opinion I like J. Cole’s verse the best, and no, not just because he responded to Kendrick. Cole’s wordplay and idiom game was on another level and I suggest you guys check out the full annotations over on Rap Genius.
Stream and download this beauty for free and let me know who you think went the hardest on their verse!

What better suited title for the day after Thanksgiving than Leftovers 2? I’ll answer that for you: none. There are no better titles than Leftovers 2. To tide us over until his full length project, OnCue decided last minute to drop the sequel to his original Leftovers series.
The tape is full of the conviction that Cuey has become so well known for in addition to a few lighter-spirited tracks like “Nude”. Features included a few familiar names including Sonny Shotz, Ro Ransom, Skizzy Mars and The Kickdrums and the talented production team was headed by in-house favorite, CJ Luzi.
I’ll surely be bumping this project for the remainder of 2013 and I recommend you all hit the download and do the same. Toss OnCue a follow on Twitter if you’re feeling the tunes!

At the beginning this song makes out to be just another twerk remix with claps on claps on claps… but once the synths kick in, this remix goes from twerking to trapping. Such a good collaboration of the two genres and use of the sample. Don’t get me wrong – I have a strong love for the original, but the way that TWRK has redone the edit, completely new way of listening to the song without getting bored!

The TDE label mates, Isaiah Rashad and SZA teamed up a few weeks back to form the soft-spoken and tender “Ronnie Blake”. The power-duo has recently returned to the scene with their music video accompaniment. The video for “Ronnie Drake” is nothing incredibly detailed or cinematic, however, it does show a side that holds true to who Isaiah Rashad is as a person and as an artist.
I’ve had this record on repeat for days now, and I’m happy to be able to share it with you all. Enjoy this rare hip-hop flavoring on FNT and stay tuned for Rashad’s upcoming mixtape Cilivia.
