ARTIST: 100 Proof
MIX CD TITLE: OB4HL IV
What caught my eye from the jump was the mixtape cover art which was very unique, so I proceeded to listen to the mixtape and I was very satisfied with the music. This artist 100 Proof has some pretty dope tracks such as “Dope” featuring Tezo, I also liked “Talkin’” which has Wutang’s classic “Cash Rules Everything Around Me” sample in it I thought the track was HOT. You definitely need to download this joint NOW!

ARTIST: Trek Life
MIX CD TITLE: Wouldn’t Change Nothing
Now speaking as a music producer the beats on this mixtape were DOPE with a real Hip Hop feel to it. I liked the artist delivery on every track no auto tune just bars and more bars spitting flames. This mixtape is a must download with HOT banger such as “What It Is” (Apollo Brown Remix), “So Supreme” I would have to say is my favorite the beat and the lyrics is EPIC, also check out “I’d Rather Be” which is another Banger. Love the mixtape cover.

ARTIST: Tony Stanza
MIX CD TITLE: BlaXphemy
Let me first start by saying I love the mixtape cover I am huge fan of Huey Newton. I really enjoyed listening to this mixtape my favorite track is “AfricaNAmerica” Tony Stanza is rapping over a nice beat with a voice sample. I definitely liked “BlaXphemy” the production by D.A.N. Ryan Of TraffikJammaz was off the chain, and “Watchin4daCops” I just loved the beat a nice Jazz flow to it reminded me of something you would hear in a poetry club or something. I would of liked the artist vocals to be mixed a little louder other than that the album is a 9 out of 10.

ARTIST: Jus Nice
MIX CD TITLE: Empty Throne
I think this artist is DOPE the mixtape isn’t just about saying hot lines like most of the mixtapes that are out now there is actual substance in the music. I really liked the track “The Real” and I was able to relate to it with the lost of my brother and also best friend a while back. I was able to appreciate the track. I also liked “Got It” the beat was hot I loved the sample on the track which was a great idea (shout out to the producer) I don’t think anyone would be disappointed after downloading and listening to this mixtape so go and get it now.
