Some weeks, it’s not easy to find a balance. This is not one of those weeks. From Kid Cudi back to rapping over a Hit Boy beat to Grimes helping out with a Blood Diamonds track and an awesome remix of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, the past 7 days have offered a variety wide enough for the listener who likes everything. And thankfully, a lot of it was free.
