Two for the value minded and Bay-centric this morning: free mixtapes from Northern Cali rappers PSD tha Drivah and the A'z, handily zipped and linked at their respective MySpaces. Highlights of the PSD mix include his collaboration with Keak da Sneak and Messy Marv, "Cuz Cuz" (produced by E-40's son Droop-E) and an amazing/weeded freestyle of sorts sung over Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" instrumental ("That ain't my baby/ don't look like meeeee..."). The A'z download features their big local single "Yadadamean," along with a slew of new tracks that may or may not make it to the group's TVT debut - and an Omarion remake! Definitely worth a listen, even if it didn't cost you anything in the first place.
