This week's puzzle, "Rap Mixes," is 4/5 in difficulty, and is a collaboration between Caleb Madison and Brendan Emmett Quigley.
And here are the rules to a bonus contest, just for fun: There are five primary theme answers in this grid. In addition, there are several hidden answers that follow the pattern of the theme. After completing the puzzle, send a list of all the hidden answers you can find to firstname.lastname@example.org. One randomly selected contestant who finds the most answers will receive a prize.
