Lee Bannon has been getting more attention lately than any Bannon since Charles and Ed. Remember where you first forgot that you heard it first (or maybe second or third). This is his latest record that continues to prove why he is the best Sacramento export since Brotha Lynch Hung or maybe Joan Didion.

The new Lil Durk mixtape arrives with plenty of time to soundtrack Halloween goonery.

Fatima Al-Quadiri continuing to make the best hunt and kill video game mission muzik.

Shlohmo remixes Samo to eerie haunted mansion effect. No word if Jay-Z heard about a guy named Samo and tried to purchase him for wall mounting.

Young Thug with the greatest Velvet Underground cover that never was.

Skinny Friedman drops a mix dedicated to your Zara work pants, includes Gates’ “Type of Way” remix and 2 Chainz’s “Fork” so you can say hello to all sorts of household staples on the go.

This is the latest installment from Brainfeeder PDBY’s Tar imprint. It features three juke cuts from the Teklife Crew, including “Ratchet” that does what a ratchet song should do — chop up a Boosie sample.

What better way to close out your week than Danny Brown telling his orgy stories on Juan Epstein.
