VIBE’s Daily Additions to the ‘Pod

1. Chris Brown – “Countdown”
The latest free release from Breezy coming to us just hours after dropping the video for “Till I Die.”

2. Meek Mill (Feat. Gucci Mane) – “Audemars”
Meek in traditional MMG form. The beat on this is crazy nice.

3. Curren$y (Feat. Pharrell) – “Chasin Papers”
Just seeing these two names next to each other says enough. Of course this goes hard.

4. Childish Gambino (Feat. Beck) – “Silk Pillow”
Who would’ve thought Beck would be spitting bars with Gambino?! This odd pair meshes pretty well.

5. Akon – “Ain’t Sayin Nothin'”
Didn’t expect this as Akon’s big comeback—we were thinking more euro-pop, less urban—but seeing that this is off his new mixtape Konkrete Jungle, he’s playing in the right field.

6. Smoke DZA (Feat. Domo Genesis & Schoolboy Q) – “Ashtray”
DZA going in as usual, with Schoolboy & Domo equally killing it as well.
