1. The Streets, Everything Is Borrowed snippets
Mike Skinner has posted clips from his upcoming album on his MySpace page to prove that he’s actually working on one. [Stereogum]

2. RZA feat. U-God, “You Can’t Stop Me Now”
The Wu-Tang leader remakes the best track on 8 Diagrams with an extended, possibly unnecessary gunshot-enhanced introduction, making us even more excited for his upcoming kung-fu movie. [Nah Right]

3. Flying Lotus feat. Lil Wayne, “Robo-Tussin”
If you’ve ever wondered what Wayne’s “A Milli” would sound like if it had been recorded in outer space, Flying Lotus, thankfully, has you covered. [Gorilla vs. Bear]

4. Killer Mike, “I Gotcha”
Killer Mike reimagines Joe Tex’s grunty seventies anthem about kissing into one about killing people. Oh, Killer Mike. [Fader]

5. Nellie McKay, “A World Without Love” (Beatles cover)
Lennon and McCartney never made a proper recording of this excellent track, and, sadly, neither has Nellie McKay. [Music Slut]
