B.o.B. – “Should Have Been the First Album” (Mixtape)

August 21, 2009

Below is a mixtape compilation of some of B.o.B.’s best joints on the net to date. This tape compiles 15 free of DJ tag joints and is a must download. Check it out below.

B.o.B. – “Should Have Been the First Album” (Mixtape)

Shake threw together this mix of No DJ Bobby Ray joints as sort of middle finger to the suits at Atlantic. Word on these e-streets is that they’re trying to force the homie B.o.B. into a 360 deal against his will. While I’m not categorically against 360, or multiple rights deals, I feel like they should be presented as an option to an emerging artist, not as theonly option. And they certainly shouldn’t be used as a blackmail tool. I doubt they’d try to pull that shit with a TI or a Jay-Z. Sure, B.o.B. still has some showing and proving to do, but is a fair deal too much to ask? Just put out that man’s album and let the chips fall where they may.

Video: Drake To Re-Release “So Far Gone” To Retail

August 14, 2009

Well, it seems as if Young Money’s own, Drake, is going to re-release his So Far Gone mixtape, but this time, it is going to retail. Yes, he is going to re-release his free mixtape to the public for profit. From the sounds of the interview below, Drake is releasing the mixtape with its strongest songs and a never before heard track, Fear, that will transition into his album. Love him or hate him, he has a buzz that is incomparable.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

While on the Toronto set for his forthcoming “Successful” video, he revealed to MTV News exclusively that he’ll be re-releasingSo Far Gone to retail outlets on September 15.

According to Drake, the revamped project will feature most of the familiar tracks that have powered his rise, from the Trey Songz and Lil Wayne-backed “Successful” to his hit “Best I Ever Had.”

But there will be a new record, “Fear,” added to the track list. The never-before-heard song will be tacked on to the end of So Far Gone and will serve as the transition from his mixtape toThank Me Later.

According to Drake, the last line of “Fear” will be the first line heard on his debut.

“I did this song that no one has ever heard before, ever,” he explained. “[It’s] a song called ‘Fear.’ I recorded it when I did So Far Gone — the first verse and half of the second verse I had gotten through. But then I just stopped because it was getting eerie. It was getting where I didn’t know if I could [finish it]. And then the other night I had a moment and I finished the song. That’s gonna be the last song on the retail [version of] So Far Gone. And the third verse transitions into Thank Me Later. So the last line of the third verse is gonna be the first line on my album.”
