Editorial: 5 Rappers’ Mixtapes to Revisit This Week

mixtapes

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

There’s a lull in rap music this week, for me at least. Don’t get me wrong, there are some hot songs out there right now that I really dig. I’m in love with the new Cormega and Black Rob song “Home,” that beat is crazy Extra P! Mega’s new album has a few joints on it, actually. And I got that Mobb Deep “Dirt (Remix)” with Ghostface in heavy rotation too, along with that new Cali kid Cozz’s song “Dreams” and Your Old Droog’s latest leaks “Free Turkey” and “No Message” with RAST RFC (which just dropped this morning). But these are just songs. Even on repeat, they can and will not sustain my necessary hip-hop intake. I need multiple, full projects of fire to survive, and I’ve played out all the other new shit I’ve been bumping this year to the max (which is a light stack in comparison to last year’s abundance of remarkable releases let’s be honest). Shout to Issa Gold of The Underachievers, I just downloaded his new solo EP. But even with that in the queue, I’m know I’m not going to meet my weekly quota of heat absorption.

Okay, you’re right. I’ve been spoiled by the frequency of modern-day rap releases, forgive me! But it’s all good. When the new shit ain’t dropping fast enough, there are always older joints you can pull out to reverse the quiet. So with that said, I decided to dive into my archives this week and revisit five rappers’ mixtapes from the past, and I invite you all to join me. Read, stream, and download below.

Editorial: 10 Songs You May Have Slept On in 2014 (So Far)

Dozens of new hip-hop songs drop every day. It’s hard to keep up, I know. Where does one even find the time to listen to everything that’s released? It’s virtually impossible nowadays. You have to actively seek out music by the artists you like, and stay on top of your favorite outlets to make sure you don’t miss anything new in the genre. Well, that’s if you care. I have some friends that don’t really give a shit about new music. They care about sports, or market trends, or sneakers. Me, I care about music. I don’t want there to be a dope song out anywhere, old or new, that I am missing in my iTunes. I need all the heat. It’s a personal mission, and I’ll be on it forever.

That said, I want to take this mid-year opportunity to share a few personal favorites from 2014—so far—that you may have slept on. If you’re on NahRight religiously like I am, then you’ve probably heard most or even all of these. But maybe you missed a couple, or possibly you clicked on one of them and didn’t absorb it properly. Here’s your chance to make up for those oversights. Oh, and this ain’t no “best of” list. If you read our daily content and features, you know there are lots of other artists, songs, and projects we’ve been rocking with this year that are worthy of praise. The proof is in our posts. This is just me, speaking for the nooks and crannies I’ve found to be highlight-worthy since the ball dropped that you may have missed, forgotten about, or not given their proper listen. I want to make sure you’re not caught out there sleeping. Ride with me.
