Music

This week, Mass Appeal premiered Tucson rapper Isaiah Toothtaker’s latest free EP “Your Majesty.” Anyone who’s been a fan of the column since before the migration will remember Toothtaker’s name from his three previous Broke Beats appearances from way back in the day, and “Your Majesty” is yet another turn in the inventive emcee’s widening array of costless material.

Broke Beats is BDCwire’s open-source hip-hop column. Every Saturday, we showcase the best new albums, EPs, and mixtapes available for free stream or download.

Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, the calloused Brooklyn rapper who first exploded into my headphones on El-P’s “Cancer 4 Cure” is back with a pair of his most off-kilter tours into rap excess. Released through his weekly Bootleg Liquor on a Sunday Night freestyle series, “Jersey bka Pussy like Crack” and “Conversations with God” are both produced by Mr. Len.
