Theophilus London - This Charming Mixtape

Complex shows love to my boy Thophilus London and his "This Charming Mixtape" by rating it the 21st best album (yes, album, not mixtape) of 2009. Do yourself a favor and download it here.

Complex co-sign: "We knew about Theophilus before 2009, but this project made us believe in him. If Morrissey made hip-hop set to electronic beats, it might sound something like This Charming Mixtape. With seemingly every rapper going left field these days, it’s getting a little tired, but Theo showed us that it’s still enjoyable if done right. Others took notice too, and now this Brooklyn kid counts folks like Mark Ronson, Solange, and Passion Pit amongst his contemporaries."
