Tune in as Trevor Williams brings us quality mixtapes from the past couple months.
Tapemasters present Trae: Diary of the Truth
Trae deepens his rep as one of Houston's established masters this time with lots of big name guests. Check out the Avril Lavigne sample on the intro.
“Get It” (feat. Rick Ross)
Nas and DJ Green Lantern, The Nigger Tape
Lead up to the most famously de-titled album of 2008. High quality and well put together with many great tone-setting incidental samples (movies, Obama, etc.). Sets the bar high for the album.
“Cops Keep Firing”
David Banner and DJ Whoo Kid, The Greatest Mixtape Ever Sold
Less than stellar lead up to David Banner's new album, The Greatest Story Ever Told. Not a great CD, but from the singles we can expect big things.
Curren$y, Fear and Loathing in New Orleans
Curren$y continues to distinguish himself with more high quality releases in his own stylistic marriage of southern with other influences.
“Movie Writers, Business and Gangsters”
DJ Rell and Gucci Mane, Wilt Chamberlain The Mixtape
Real high-quality tape from perennial up and comer Gucci Mane. Spare southern beats and consistently catchy flow.
DJ Nice and Joell Ortiz, Brooklyn Bomber
Good collection of recent Joell Ortiz songs and freestyles/remixes arranged in many servings of small quantities. A good introduction for anyone.
“Letter to Obama”
