Mp3 blogs are teetering on the edge of irrelevance. Thanks to Twitter an artist can cut out that middleman completely and deliver new songs directly to fans and followers.

Here are some recent zshare jams, as tweeted by a few of the area’s most promising emcees. (You can’t keep this middleman out the game, dammit!)

XO – “F.R.N.O.

RAtheMC – “We Ridin”” (Prod. Judah)

Mo Betta – “I Swear” (Prod. Whitefolkz)
