These Are Mixtapes

Post Author:

Tune in as Trevor Williams brings us quality mixtapes from the past couple months.

First up:

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)

“Wrist out the Window” (remix feat. Rich B)

Nas and DJ Green Lantern, The Nigger Tape

green lantern, nas

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”

“Esco Lets Go”

David Banner and DJ Whoo Kid, The Greatest Mixtape Ever Sold

David Banner, mixtape

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.

“One Nation”

Curren$y, Fear and Loathing in New Orleans

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”


“Gettin Money”

DJ Rell and Gucci Mane, Wilt Chamberlain The Mixtape

Wilt Chamberlain, DJ Gucci

Real high-quality tape from perennial up and comer Gucci Mane. Spare southern beats and consistently catchy flow.


“How These Hoes Be”

“Wilt Chamberlain Pt. 1”

DJ Nice and Joell Ortiz, Brooklyn Bomber

Joel Ortiz, Brookyn 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”
