1. Karen O, “Highway 61 (Revisited)” (Bob Dylan cover)
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs front woman’s Dylan impression is nowhere near as good as Cate Blanchett’s, but it’s still way better than Richard Gere’s. [Stereogum]

2. Lil Wayne, “Gossip”
Wayne disses an unnamed rapper (who is obviously 50 Cent, since he’s the only one who hasn’t yet asked Wayne to do a guest verse). [Nah Right]

3. Björk, “Scary”
A B-side from bygone era when Björk used to make excellent B-sides. [Music Slut]

4. Jay-Z, An American Gangster: The Mixtape
To promote his upcoming American Gangster, Jay’s made available this free collection of (mostly) Black Album remixes, because he, too, probably wants to forget about Kingdom Come. [Different Kitchen]

5. M.I.A., “Paper Planes (remix)
A remix of the Kala track that’s approximately 900 percent better than the original. [Music Slut]
