3:16 w/ Freddie Gibbs & Pill

"In this third edition of Yours Truly & The Smoking Section’s 3:16 series we turn our attention to two of the baddest beat bandits under the sun: Freddie Gibbs and Pill. These dudes spit that gritty, dirt under the nails, bricks in the trunk, don’t visit us at home hip-hop that harkens back to a time when it still felt good to be a gansta. Act accordingly."

Input & Dope Fiction: My World

Here's another sample of Adele's Hometown Glory. I'm diggin' it, you should too.

Drake: You Know, You Know A Capella

I like the A Capella version way better then the original! Not to fond of the beat that Drake picked for this one... "Why has every woman never dined here before? Am I the only 23 year old wine connoisseur?". Not the best song ever but You Know, You Know!

Crooks & Castles Buy Out Best Buy's Stock of Thank Me Later

Who cares if dude's getting driven around in a $70,000 car (yeah... people are getting upset because you "shouldn't" be in the back seat if the car only cost 70 G's haha). This track makes this seem like the most epic trip to Best Buy!

Donnis: Aquemini

Donnis been catching a lot of flack for going over this beat but I think he did a damn good job. I agree there's certain songs you shouldn't mess with but I'm feelin' this.
