A collection of this week’s most downloaded tracks across college campuses

1. Skrillex & 12th Planet- “Needed Change”-Free Treats Vol. 1

This nice little 3-track collection was recently put out by Blood Company, Contender, and Smog. The mixtape includes tracks from Skrillex, 12th Planet, Flinch, and Zedd. Genres range from electro house to dubstep and you can grab the other tracks here. Enjoy this free filth, cause it doesn’t come often.

2. Royce Da 5’9″ & Eminem- “I’m On Everything”-Bad Meets Evil

“I’m On Everything” represents the second leak from Eminem and Royce da 5’9″‘s joint EP, which should be released on June 14, 2011. “Fast Lane”, the first leak, represented the duo’s first track to reach the top 40.

3. Justice- “Civilization (No Fake Remix)”

Although the song came out some 2 months ago, this new remix was released with a brand new video, which I’ve linked below. Enjoy.

Justice- Civilization

4. Busta Rhymes- “Killin’ ‘Em (feat. LL Cool J)

What can I say… Busta Rhymes has still got it. Though he may not be as contemporary or share some of the rap-style displayed by popular alt rappers like Macklemore or Aesop Rock, his name is still fitting for his extremely “buttery” flow. Just give the track a listen and you’ll see what I mean. Four for you, Busta Rhymes!

5. Digitalism- “Miami Showdown”-I Love You Dude”

The release of this track represents the second leak off of the upcoming indie-electronic band’s album. The track moves away from the more indie-rock influenced tracks that most listeners are accustomed to and takes a turn for a much more electronic feel.

6. Lil Wayne- “How To Love”-The Carter IV

Weezy F Baby‘s new track has a much more R&B feel to it. It’s the latest release off of the upcoming Carter IV. Enjoy.

7. Excision & Downlink- “Blue Steel”-Existence EP

This new banger is a great addition to any dubstep collection. The latest leak by dubstep legend Excision is sure to not just turn heads but bang ‘em as well. Enjoy!

8. Shabazz Palaces- “Swerve…”-Black Up

One half of this alt. hip-hop group is Aesop Rock- ‘nuf said. This track was recently leaked off of the upcoming album, which has a much more alternative feel to more traditional Aesop albums.

9. Asher Roth- “Last Man Standing feat. Akon”

The collusion of the two unlikely artists is actually a well-received one. Favorably reviewed across numerous indie-blog sites, this new track represents a leak off of the upcoming rappers’ album.

10. Chiddy Bang- “The Good Life (Moombahton Remix)”-Taco Party Pack

Drexel University rapper/producer team, Chiddy Bang, recently released this new moombahton track in light of the new wave of the rising genre. Enjoy, guys!

11. The Weeknd- “Rolling Stone”

Often nicknamed “sex-hop,” this R&B dude has been killing it lately. This latest leak is his most recent gift to the world.

12. Fort Lean- “Beach Holiday”

Indie-rockers Fort Lean dropped this new track over RCRDLBL. It’s been raved about all across the indie-blog sphere, so enjoy.
