Warren G: No One Could Do It Better
After three years of nothing, the West Coast G-Funk veteran returns with a new mixtape that includes appearances from Young Jeezy, Ne-Yo, Snoop Dogg and more. Seven of the 19 songs feature verses from the late Nate Dogg, which is a bittersweet treat. [Prefix]

Miguel: Art Dealer Chic Vol. 2
Miguel’s second free three-song EP is out, and considering the first one contained a bona fide R&B lovemakin’ classic in “Adorn,” I think we all better head over here and download the new one. [The Fader]

Meek Mill: “I’m Rollin”
Mill's latest has that brittle Maybach snap-drum thing going on, but the heavy groove on the bass line and rhythmic cadence of the repetitive chorus make this song a good candidate for streets to suburbs crossover. [The Fader]

Big Baby Gandhi: “Boogie Nights”
The Queens rapper’s latest has an inviting disco-funk vibe that pairs well with his frenetic flow. Gandhi covers a lot of ground in a mere two minutes, including details about his dream girl (“Debbie Harry meet Halle Berry”), his sick days (“take the day off to do shrooms in my room”) and his nicknames (“All the young honeys call me 'Kama Sutra'”).

PS I Love You: “Princess Towers”
Frontman Paul Saulnier of this Canadian duo yelps and moans like he’s about to pass out after a particularly eventful bender, but the propulsive rhythm and fuzzy guitars sound like they could go on for hours (although it only goes 2:22, actually). [Stereogum

PJ Morton ft. Lil Wayne: “Lover”
New Cash Money label signee gets a visit from his boss (the new face of Mountain Dew) on this ’90s R&B throwback about—you guessed it—being a “lover, not a fighter.” [XXL]
