Must Download mixtape. Tru Fam sent me this mixtape, "Bowties & Applause", a couple days ago and it is amazing. I can listen to this song from the first song to the last without skipping a song, which I can only do with about 4 other mixtapes. The samples that Tru Fam used on the tape were great choices because they are not well-known songs, but they have great instrumentals and great hooks. And Tru Fam makes better versions of the songs than the originals that were sampled. Definitely check out this mixtape below.

Must Download mixtape. This mixtape dropped a couple days ago, so I apologize for posting it so late. But it is amazing. IanJ, although he samples a lot of songs on this tape, it is still amazing. His versions are way better than the originals. His songs are catchy, but he has great flowing verses too. He has been blowing up lately and if he continues like he is, then he will be a popular artist one day. Download the tape below.

Must Download mixtape. Zak sent me his new mixtape, "Downtown Delinquents", yesterday. And by releasing two singles from the mixtape, "Clap Your Hands" and "Rock The Show", he created a lot of hype for the tape. This mixtape is so good because Zak's flow is insane on all the different types of instrumentals, from dubstep influenced tracks to light hip-hop tracks. Zak has tons of potential because of his amazing rapping talent and ability to rap verses on different types of beats. Listen to some songs from the mixtape and download the whole thing below.

Must Download mixtape. OnCue just released this new mixtape yesterday and as usual by OnCue, it is ridiculous. I can easily listen though the whole tape without skipping a song and it was pretty tough to only choose 4 songs to put up for a preview. All the beats are amazing and the flow by Cuey is great, as usual. The songs on this tape are pretty mellow, but they have really deep, meaningful lyrics, which makes OnCue one of my favorite artists. He raps about his own experiences and his youth, which was tough for him and that makes his songs stronger. Check out some songs from the tape below and definitely download the whole thing below.
Download "Can't Wait" by OnCue
