Southern Mixtapes to Check Out

Here are just a few of the newest drops that fans of the dirty south genre will want to check out.  There is a selection of different trap music style’s from artists located in Atlanta, Memphis, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and all the way down to Batesville, Mississippi.  Four of these releases are official projects, while the other two titles, from Young Jeezy and Lil Wayne, contain a compilation of the artist’s latest hit records.

Recent news on October 22nd, 2014 let Chief Keef’s fan base know that he was released from Interscope Records.  This did not seem to go well with the Chicago emcee.  He took to twitter and went on a rant about being dropped, even posting some racial slurs about the staff.

The day before Halloween, Chief Keef released a mixtape with the incarcerated 1017 Records boss, Gucci Mane, titled “Big Gucci Sosa”.  After listening to this 12-track effort, maybe you can decide if Gucci Mane can save the “Bang, Bang” rapper.  Chief Keef hasn’t been hot in a long time with two of his best records being “I Don’t Like” and “Love Sosa”.  The production on this release definitely has some tough dirty south beats.

Da Mafia 6ix formerly know as Three 6 Mafia, with the name change coming since Juicy J is no longer allowed to be a member of the group under the same label, release “Hear Sum Evil The Mixtape” two days before Halloween hosted by DJ Scream.  The group’s producer, DJ Paul, has a hand on all 12-tracks for this official release.  Production also from 808 Mafia, KOM, TWhy, J Grxxn, and The Outvaderz.  Guest appearances with Da Mafia 6ix include LA Chat, YB, The Rick Rocka, Locodunit, Fiend, Charlie P, Paul Wall, and more.  If you like the record “Sippin On Some Sizzurp”, give the 3rd track, “Lockm N Da Trunk”, on this title a listen, as it has a flip on the “Sizzurp” beat.  As with all of Da Mafia 6ix’s music, this music is hard and rugged in the dirty south.

On October 22nd, Lil Boosie officially changed his name to Boosie Bad Azz.  The mixtape titled “Life After Deathrow” is the first official release from the Baton Rouge rapper since being released from prison after serving 6 years on a reduced 8 year sentence.  The “Wipe Me Down” rapper gave this release an 18-track effort with features from Yo Gotti, LIV, Trey Songz, and Shy Glizzy.  The intro on this project has a track taken from Snoop Dogg’s early days titled “Murder Was The Case”.

The last official mixtape to be reviewed in this posting is from the “Crank That” artist, Soulja Boy. Soulja Boy’s latest effort in being an entrepreneur is founding and becoming the owner of the S.O.D. Money Gang record label.  Guest appearances on this 21-track project from Sean Kingston, Cap 1, and Rich The Kid.  The only producer to be named on this release is Zaytoven.  Does this imply that Soulja Boy did the rest of the beats himself?  In our opinion, you would really have to be a hardcore fan of Soulja Boy to like or even listen to this auto-tune project.

Other titles to look for on are two compilations by Young Jeezy and Lil Wayne.  These are unofficial and just released to give you their latest hit records on one disc.  The Jeezy mixtape titled “C” contains 18-tracks with guest appearances by T.I., Akon, Kelly Rowland, 2 Chainz, Jay-Z, Bando Jonez, Wiz Khalifa, Game, Rick Ross, and many other top industry artists.  The compilation titled “Loner” plays you popular music from Young Money’s Lil Wayne.  Features with the New Orleans emcee from Ludacris, Chris Brown, Drake, Super Hood, Big Sean, YG, Tyga, Rocko, Meek Mill, and other music superstars.
