As a means of giving back to their fans and celebrating Black Friday, the forward-thinking rappers and producers on indie hip-hop label Hellfyre Club have teamed up for the Veneris Nigrum mixtape. It's completely free and features new/old material from a slew of West Coast acts you just might find yourself checking for once the 11 tracks stop rattling your speakers. Yeah, you're going to want to write these names down for future reference: Nocando, Open Mike Eagle (who gets remixed by Busdriver), Rheteric Ramirez (whose song "Southlander" is a killer), VerBS, Sahtyre...nah, you know what, just grab the tape and bump it at the highest volume. You can download Veneris Nigrum here. And yes, that's Black Friday in Latin.
