This week brought yet another taste of what we can expect from Big Boi’s new album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors along with new favorites courtesy of Shiegto and Nosaj Thing. Potholes favorites Bilal and Exile both dug into their vaults to release free mixtapes, and Meyhem Lauren connected with the likes of Action Bronson, Heems, and The Alchemist to drop a free album. Not to mention rapper Frank Nitt, the man who holds the keys to Dilla’s catalogue, teamed up with Dilla’s younger brother Illa J on a new track that goes over a previously unreleased funky Dilla beat. Long live the greatest.
