Mixtapes August 2016

The Labor Day holiday weekend is less than two weeks away and to some that would be a signal to the end of summer.  Depending on which part of the country you live in, the warm temperatures should still be around.  Those of you that are planning a celebration with a barbecue, party, or family get together, we have some free mp3 downloads for our premium members to keep the guests entertained.

First, on the list of reviews for this blog post is the 3rd edition of the “The Breakfast Club Countdown” presented by The Empire.  These guys have some of the nicer artwork when they drop their mixtapes.  Music artists making the cut for this installment include Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Travi$ Scott, Desiigner, Anderson Paak, Maino, T.I., Nas, DJ Khaled, Quavo, Pusha T, Yo Gotti, Joey Bada$$, Lil Uzi Vert, ScHoolboy Q, Kanye West, and others on this playlist.

Next, all the way across the pond in the United Kingdom is DJ Triple Exe with volume 114 of “The Passion Of R&B” Collection.  The cover tagline “All Natural Movement” seems to be a tribute to when women had natural hair.  We see no problem with females wearing wigs, extensions, weaves, etc. and that opinion is coming from the guys.  Many of this DJ’s recent r&b and hip hop mixtapes showcase artwork with a throwback to the 90’s era.  Check out records on the “Black Is Beautiful” edition from Kent Jones, Pitbull, Jermaine Dupri, The Dream, Pilot Jones, Trina, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Chris Brown, Dreezy, Wale, Nicole Wray, Goldlink, Shakka, Zayn, J Shin, Latocha Scott, Danya Back, Tinahe, and other industry recording musicians.

The third product to be reviewed comes from DJ S.R. with part 5 of the “Street Matrimoney” music sessions.  French Montana made the cover of this drop, although the rap artist did push back the date for the upcoming retail album release of “Mac & Cheese 4” to October 14th.  The Coke Boy is heavy in the game with 20 official mixtapes since 2002.   It would seem as though the album was set to be released on August 14th, but had to be pushed back to clear a few samples.  Department store Target sold a few copies on August 19th before pulling it from shelves.  The copies that were sold is what led to the internet leak.  DJ S.R.’s product contains a few tracks from French Montana’s new album with other records by Rich The Kid, Migos, Blac Youngsta, Trae G, Zaytoven, Gucci Mane, GGoodMoneyatl, Lite Fortunato, Wyclef Jean, The Weeknd, Chance The Rapper, Sy Ari Da Kid, 2 Chainz, TYuS, and other hip hop lyricists on this 29 song drop.  In anticipation of MC4, check out the video French did with Kanye West and Nas:

Finally, DJ HyDef is new on the site, so you will find a few of his recent mixtapes he released, with the most recent being “New World Records”.  Kevin Gates is at the center of the cover artwork with Lil Uzi Vert on the left and we are not exactly sure who the person is on the right, possibly Johnny Cinco?  This release plays you 20 new songs by Dave East, Kur, Villz, Pusha T, Troy Ave, Freeway, Biz, Wale, Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, KhrXs, Dice Soho, Cool Amerika, King Marz, IamSu, Lil Gabe, and others.

The month of August 2K16 is almost over.  Hopefully everyone found some way to enjoy the summer break.  Football season has begun and for some that means the homecoming dance is right around the corner.
