Off The Books
P Reign comes through with Off The Books this morning, to follow up his Dear America EP from last year. The mixtape saw the release of a big collaboration yesterday, "Dipped In Gold" featuring T.I. and Young Thug. Those aren't the only big names who will make an appearance on the Reps Up rapper's tape. PARTYNEXTDOOR appears on a track called "Stuck on Stacks" and Travi$ Scott is a guest on "Palm Trees."
Casino Life 2: Brown Bag Legend
While we still haven't seen hide nor hair of French Montana's long-delayed album Mac & Cheese 4, he has been staying up on his mixtape game in the meantime. He gave us Mac & Cheese 4: The Appetizer in December, and today, we get Casino Life 2: Brown Bag Legend. In contrast to its Harry Fraud-produced predecessor, this one's packed with guest appearances.
Up For Days
Yesterday XO affiliate and fellow Canadian Belly returned to the mixtape circuit after an almost five-year hiatus, since The Greatest Dream I Never Had. He spent quite a bit of time perfecting and curating his latest body of work, Up For Days, and it definitely shows.
Days Before Rodeo
The other day G.O.O.D. Music producer-slash-rapper Travi$ Scott revealed artwork and a tracklist for a free album, Days Before Rodeo, and shortly thereafter he dropped the free release. He's made it clear via Twitter this should not be considered a mixtape. Days Before Rodeo follows up the young artist's debut album from last year, which was also a freebie, Owl Pharaoh.
Experience Owl Pharaoh, the latest tape from Travi$ Scott. It dropped on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013. Travi$ Scott's odds keep getting better with each new leak, and Owl Pharaoh will undoubtedly improve his chances of winning. It's a worthy addition to a respectable catalogue that has seen a lot of growth since Travi$ Scott debuted in this game. We're looking forward to the follow-up. The following artists are featured on the project: Toro Y Moi, A$AP Ferg, Theophilus London, Paul Wall, James Fauntleroy, Wale, Meek Mill. Can you dig it?
