    Kool A.D. drops not one but two mixtape free album thingys today. Like the previous 51 – a dusted favorite from last year – 63 and 19 are christened after Bay Area bus lines, where Victor Vazquez has returned to live post-Das Racist. 38 tracks here in total featuring guests like Issue, Meyhem Lauren and Busdriver and production from Amaze 88, Trackademicks, Ad Rock (yup, that Ad Rock) and others. Listen and download below.
