Earlier this week, Bay Area rapper Lil B released a mixtape entitled “Free Music,” which as the title suggests, contained 676 free tracks. The massive collection, which can be downloaded as a three-part .rar file, comes on the heels of Lil B’s first retail release, Angel’s Exodus.
“Free Music” follows the same high volume release strategy that prompted Lil B to also create over 150 different MySpace pages, which all have dozens of free songs posted on them. By all accounts, most of the mixtape songs are collected from the aforementioned, scattered MySpace pages. Download links, which presumably won’t be active for long are below.
“What led to the ‘Based Freestyles’ was really just the state of the music industry,” Lil B told HipHopDX during a 2010 interview. “Just being forgotten about and coming to a point where it’s just all on you. That put me in a mode where I was freestyling and just really doing what I love. I was just putting my life into it, and I could do was be real because I was at such a low point.”
In other Lil B news, NBA Scoring leader Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder told Complex.com he would accept a challenge to play Lil B in a game of one-on-one before the NBA All-Star Game. The match was apparently spawned via some friendly trash talking from Lil B on Twitter.

“We head up to San Francisco next week,” Durant told Complex.com “So I think that’s where he lives. I don’t know if he’s there now or whatever, but if I have time and he has time, we gonna get this going, because he’s been talking a lot of trash.”
