Monday afternoon, Lil B released a new mixtape called The Basedprint 2—his fourth self-release this year. (He pointed to the site datpiff.com, an online clearinghouse for mixtapes and other gray-market releases, as part of the album's launch.) It consists of 20 tracks, including songs where he raps over the adult-contempo stalwarts the Fray and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs; it starts off with a track called "NYU." "NYU STUDENTS MUST DOWNLOAD BEFORE LECTURE!" he tweeted upon the tape's release. It is not yet on Spotify; his other releases from 2012 aren't there, either. Perhaps on Wednesday, he'll offer up his feelings on the matter.

Lil B speaks at NYU's Kimmel Center on Wednesday, April 11, and performs at the New Museum on Thursday, April 12.
