Suga Free; Smell My Finger .......well,need to find a link for this one.

The majority of the tracks are on youtube, in bad quality though, if you want a feel for it. Takes a few listens to apreciate it. First listen I thought it fuckin sucked with all the auto-tune, but the beats will grow on you.
