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.

voxpop -- Who do you like for 2012 in the U.S. Executive Branch. Criticism is not to be criticized. If you said Obama, well, thanks. ConorDunphy

I bypassed downloading SPOTIFY because they only allowed me to sign in with a facebook account..NOT RIGHT! and apparently you are doing the same type of thing with this comment section.

Google Music (or Play, or whatever it's called) supposedly included the ability for musicians to upload their songs & charge whatever they wanted for it. Anybody know how that's working out, if many musicians are using it, etc.?

"I specialize in the progression of humans" -- um, OK. I hope that includes helping them sell their music.
