HNHH's wishlist of collaborative tapes we'd like to hear in the near future.
Migos Thuggin, Coke Zoo, Party At 8, Whip It... What a time to be a joint mixtape, right? The past few weeks have seen a ton of collaborative project announcements, not the least of which was Drake and Future's chart-topping WATTBA. What's to blame for this flurry of artistic partnerships? It could be another case of the industry following Drizzy wherever he goes, but whatever the case, we're welcoming the new music.
The overwhelming majority of recent joint tapes have come from Atlanta natives, with their city's vibrant scene already thriving on collaboration, and titans like Gucci Mane having quite a few under his belt already, but we're starting to see more and more artists who lack regional connections link up. Beyond Future and Drake, Chance The Rapper and Lil B found the common based thread in their work on this summer's Free (Based Freestyles Mixtape), Taylor Gang cronies Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign gave us Talk About It In The Morning, and PartyNextDoor and TM88's impending tape will connect both locations commonly referred to as "The 6." These somewhat unexpected pairings are enough to spark rampant speculation in any rap fan, especially those who've spent years waiting patiently on rumored releases as unlikely as DOOMStarks or the long forgotten Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana album that's had its name jacked by a recent Weeknd hit. So now, we're indulging our imaginations and dreaming up ten joint releases that would be almost undeniably lit. Be sure to share your best predictions/wildest hopes for joint tapes in the comments.
