A handful of tracks were released Monday & Tuesday that didn’t get the preferential treatment so just to keep people abreast of whatever may be out, Day & A Dream keeps it simple with the links. From individual tracks to Maino’s The Art of War mixtape, I’m sure this little warm up will keep you a little happy. Happy Hump Day.

Oh, and reviews coming soon for Jack Freeman’s Dark Liquor, Ski Beatz’ 24 Hour Karate School, and Blial’s Airtight’s Revenge.

Maino’s been gearing up for his sophomore LP The Day After Tomorrow and following the trend of working with DJ Drama for a freebie mixtape isn’t a bad place to start. Bringing in comrades PUSH! Montana, Snoop Dogg, Red Cafe, Joell Ortiz, Styles, Sheek & Diddy to help fight the war gives the tape a heavyweight feel and if anything, Maino’s ready for battle. I mean, he has been sharpening up his hand game by choking and slapping that kid from World of Jenks.

DOWNLOAD: Jon Connor – Epic

Jon Connor is a young up & comer from Flint, Michigan who could be a pretty big thing in the coming months. Scary how much talent is found in Michigan, hip-hop wise. His upcoming mixtape, Jon Connor as Vinnie Chase: Season 1 is dropping pretty soon.

DOWNLOAD: Diddy – Shades (f. Lil Wayne & Justin Timberlake)

Dunno if this cut is going to make the deadline for Last Train to Paris but by sheer name value alone this should be able to pull some attention. JT’s been doing guest spots recently and Weezy is about to be home from the clink pretty soon.

DOWNLOAD: Vado – Celebration

While Vado’s mentor Cam’Ron joins Jim Jones in “dissing” Kanye West, the Slime Flu general merely pays homage to those covers ‘Ye’s been producing as of late. Slime Flu drops October 12th.

DOWNLOAD: Bruno Mars – Just The Way You Are [Remix] (f. Lupe Fiasco)

DOWNLOAD: Bruno Mars – Liquor Store Blues (f. Damian Marley)

A double shot of the cocaine cowboy Bruno Mars as he gears up for his debut album to be released October 5th. While Lupe’ll have his fans try to get Atlantic Records to release his LASERS LP, it almost seems bizarre looking at Bruno & Lupe on a track given that “Nothing On You” was originally a Lupe record given to B.o.B who then helped make it a #1 record on the charts. Liquor Store Blues sees Mars team up with Damian Marley for a dope cut that’s going to be featured on the album. Hopefully Mars can shake the drug talk.

DOWNLOAD: 50 Cent – They Burned Me

New 50 Cent? After all of his terror on Twitter, it was only a matter of time before Curtis got back into the studio and recorded something. Although this cut might have been from the Before I Self Destruct days, this combined with Fiddy’s growing fanbase who wait for his next soliloquy of ignorance – it might be a kick start to 50 once again ruling the world.

DOWNLOAD: Gucci Mane – Little Friend (f. Bun B)

Gucci Mane‘s The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted hits stores on the 28th. Here’s a cut featuring the Trill OG.

DOWNLOAD: Pimp C – Fly Lady (f. Jazze Pha)

Pimp C will have his posthumous album The Naked Soul of Sweet James Jones released in stores and online retailers on October 5th.

DOWNLOAD: Pusha T – See About Us

A quickstrike from G.O.O.D. Music’s newest lethal weapon who might have been supplying CuDi that white this entire time.

DOWNLOAD: Trey Songz – Freaky Dance (f. T.I. & Swizz Beatz)

A bonus cut from Passion, Pain & Pleasure which soared to take the status of #1 album in the country. I don’t know how exactly but I guess I was wrong in predicting the album came out too soon.
