OSTT Music | Weekly Roundup (Mixtapes)

Me and the president or should I say the prince figured we should do it a little different and instead of hitting you with random music post we thought we devote a day to giving you a weekly roundup of what's tight. So I picked Tuesday which makes sense seeing that's when music legally drops to purchase. I'll have two separate post one for mixtapes and one for singles. You may not agree with the tapes I like and think you should check out so if you have better ones you think I missed drop me a line @HOP_COOL. I'd be more than happy to check it out and listen. I also know some weeks the mixtape grind may be slow and you may only get 1, so if I'm missing out on good music let me know. This week I have two that you may have heard hit the jump below to preview them.

Mac Miller - Macadelic
Mick Boogie Presents Slum Village - The Dirty Slums

If you're a true hip hop head there is no way you should pass this tape up. Slum Village remains true to their underground sound with Slum Village and Mick Boogie collaborating to create The Dirty Slums mixtape. This 20-track project features Big Sean, Black Milk, Phonte, and more, as well as production mostly from Young RJ. For those that don't know who Mick Boogie is he's the man behind the DJ Jazzy Jeff Summertime mixtapes that are off the chain. If you haven't heard those I suggest you come out from your rock and check them with summer not being far away.

Mac! So everyone should know how I feel about Mac at first I passed, then I gave him another thorough listen on the BDE Mixtape which is where he captured my attention. I personally like how he has found his lane and his following. Every artist evolves and you can hear it in their music when you listen. This new mixtape is a prime example, the beats alone are worth the download. Also has features from Juciy J, Lil Wayne, Cam'ron, Sir Michael Rock of the Cool Kids to name a few with production from ID Labs & Lex Luger.
