It seems that for one reason or another there has been a lot of new hip-hop music dropping over the past day or two. So instead of bombarding you with post after post I've compiled all the latest tracks which have been doing the rounds into one convenient post for your reading/listening pleasure. New music from Kanye West, Nas, Drake, Big Sean, CyHi Da Prynce, Lil' Wayne, Nicki Minaj and more have surfaced on the interwebs so click through to check out all the tracks and prepare yourself because this is going to be one mega music post!

In the middle of last year Kanye West performed an inpromptu set at the Facebook headquraters, debuting songs off his then titled "Good Ass Job" album. "Mama's Boyfriend" was one of the standout tracks which he performed that day however it never ended up making the cut for the album which would go on to become My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (MBDTF). This is proabbly a good thin because Mama's Boyfriend is a song that would have been out of place on MBDTF, that's not to say it's a dud. It's far from that and now that a proper studio version of the track has surfaced we can all appreciate it throwback sound and classic Kanye sped-up vocal sample that takes us back to Kanye's earlier albums. Check out the track below.

Drake has certainly been busy at work on his sophomore album "Take Care". To keep the fans happy he has leaked a track entitled "Marvin's Room" which will reportedly appear on the album. The track sees Drizzy showcasing his vocal prowess and really getting his croon on. Check out Marvin's Room below.

There have been rumours flying left, right and centre about legendary rapper Nas being back in the stuido working on an album. However up until now there's been no actual proof besides the rumour that he was planning to work with everyone's go to R&B crooner, Frank Ocean. Now we have the first proof that indeed Nasir is bac ck in the studio working hard on his new album with the release of the track "Nasty". I was a bit skeptical before listening to his track because Nas' output has been very up and down over the years. However I'm really digging Nasty and in my books this bodes very well for the release of his next album, which will supposedly be titled "Life Is Good" and be released later this year.

The release date for GOOD Music alumni "Big Sean's" debut album "Finally Famous" is fast approaching and the rapper has released another track from the album, "Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay". I think when viewing the tracklist for the album this was the track that everyone wanted to hear because it features none other than his label boss and everyone's favourite rapper Kanye West. I'm really hyped for Finally Famous which is set to drop on June 28, but until then check out Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay below.

Here we have another track from a member of the GOOD Music family, this time from "CyHi Da Prynce with "Woopty Doo" featuring Big Sean. This song is slated to appear on his mixtape "Royal Flush II" which drops today. You can't hate on this song, with two of the better new school rappers on it and impeccanle production from Kanye West & No I.D. and I'm always a sucker for some horns in the beat.

This man continually reaffirms his status as the hardest working man in hip-hop with his work ethic and consistent output. This time Curren$y has dropped the track, "You See It" from his upcoming major label debut "Weekend at Burnies". He also still has his mixtape and accompanying movie "The Muscle Car Chronicles" in the works after an earlier delay with Weekend At Burnies set to drop on June 28. What more can I say, this is Curren$y at his best and after the dopeness that was the Covert Coup EP with The Alchemist, I'm mad hyped for this album.

Gym Class Heroes have released their first bit of new music in a long while in the form of "Stereo Heart" featuring Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. The band had previously been on a mini hiatus with frontman Travie McCoy hooking up with Bruno Mars to do his solo thing. Now they are back together working on their fifth studio album "The Papercut Chronicles II" which is set to drop sometime later in the year. I'm not a big fan of Gym Class Heroes as their sound is a bit too poppy for my liking but have a listen for yourself below and see what you think.

Another rapper that I'm not very fond of "Lil' Wayne" has leaked a new track from his forthcoming album "Tha Carter IV". The track entitled "Dear Anne (Stan Part 2)" is supposed to be a continuation of Eminem's samsh hit, "Stan" (you know the one that had Dido on the hook) from his Marshall Mathers LP. If you like Wayne you can check out Dear Anne below.

Finally we finish off with a new Nicki Minaj track. Well I suppose you can't really call it new since it was supposedly recorded before she signed to Lil' Wayne's "Young Money" conglomerate. Nonetheless it's an unheard track. I'm not really going to comment on this track since I don't really like Nicki Minaj, in my opinion she's done one good song, Kanye West's - Monster (technically it wasn't even her song, so she's had one good verse). I'll leave it up to you Nicki Minaj fans out there to listen and decide for yourself, so check out Top of the World below.
