15. G4SHI - 4Play
14. QuESt - Searching Sylvan
13. Nikko Lafre - MPLS: West End Stories
12. OG Maco & Cardo- Live Life 2
10. Gucci Mane - The Return Of Mr. Perfect
OK, is the joke on us? Is Gucci Mane not really locked up? Fine, you got us, but just tell us what the deal is. We really can't figure it out. He's dropped or announced 16 full projects this year...sixteen. He's put out like 4 times what Curren$y has, and that's saying a lot. Although some of the releases have been focused more on other artists, this one feels like all BURR, all the way through. You're asking us if we're fucking with this tape heavy? Bitch, we might be.
9. Big K.R.I.T - See Me On Top Vol. 4
Last month, as anticipation for his upcoming album Cadillactica was growing, Big K.R.I.T dropped the 4th installment of his See Me On Top series. It's a collection of remixes, unheard tracks and songs that might have originally been for the album, but sat on the shelf for a little bit too long ("Mt. Olympus"). As usual, Krizzle brings the heat and nabs some pretty dope features as well, including A$AP Ferg and Rittz. Most of the production is handled by KRIT himself as well. If this isn't enough of the Mississippi emcee for you, you can also hear the early stream of Cadillactica here.
8. Rich Gang - Tha Tour Part 1
Fittingly titled, since the trio is heading out on tour soon, Rich Gang dropped this monster set towards the end of September and it's actually really good. Obviously, Birdman hasn't always delivered with his verses, but he actually brings it on this set. The other 2 emcees, Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan, also shine on the tape and make you wonder if we may have the new Big Tymerz on our hands. If you're not into the Southern-style trap that's taken over the airwaves recently, you probably won't love this either, but it's definitely worth a listen, as you guys gave it an 83% rating on HNHH.
7. Future - Monster
A few days before Halloween, Future decided to get in the holiday spirit and let loose this scary new mixtape Monster. With album-worthy features and production, it's no shock that Future is running the game right now, with anything he touches turning to gold, and we're just being "Honest". With appearances from Metro Boomin and Lil Wayne, this mixtape goes off in a big way, so make sure you download it below. You guys gave it an 87%, so it's not his best work, but still not too shabby.
6. Tory Lanez- Lost Cause
Tory Lanez has been on fire lately, giving his growing fanbase constant new music with his Fargo Friday series of drops. That buildup led to his current nationwide tour and his most recent mixtape, Lost Cause. You guys gave it a 93% and were really feeling it, so naturally it makes the list. Peep the RL Grime-produced "I 95" for sure, as well as the hard-hitting "Grandma's Crib."
5. Curren$y - Saturday Night Car Tunes & More Saturday Night Car Tunes
This dude's a straight up workaholic. Not only did he drop Saturday Night Car Tunes, a 7 song free EP on the first day of September, but he then dropped the sequel, More Saturday Night Car Tunes, a few weeks ago. This is in addition to all the work he's been doing as the boss man at Jet Life Recordings, dropping the compilation mixtape Organized Crime and solo tapes from JLR artists Audio D, Young Roddy and more. It comes as no surprise, as Curren$y has been the hardest working artist in the game for years, consistently dropping 3 or 4 full projects a year at a consistently high level. Features include Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, Gunplay, Birdman and more.
4. Hustle Gang - G.D.O.D 2
T.I. has had a busy couple of months. While gearing up to release his massive Paperwork album, he was also trying to get his squad's mixtape out, a sequel to last year's original G.D.O.D set. Obviously, this monster project boasts some of the hottest rappers in the game right now, as Hustle Gang has amassed one of the most talented stables of artists in hip-hop. You get brand new joints from Tip himself, Trae Tha Truth, Troy Ave, Travi$ Scott, Rich Homie Quan, Iggy Azalea, Problem, B.O.B and Young Thug. You guys rated it VERY HOTTTTT with a 92% so safe to say it's a hit. RIP Doe B.
3. Childish Gambino - STN MTN
To accompany the release of his Kauai EP, Childish Gambino also dropped this surprise mixtape to the delight of his fans everywhere. Not only did it have some original work, but a few really dope remixes of hip-hop songs new and old, including Lil Wayne's "Go DJ" and Future's "Move That Dope". Riding the momentum of his last album, Because The Internet, Mr. Glover has had a tremendous year where he saw his music career go to the next level, even scoring a major radio hit with "3005". This mixtape scored a 90% VERY HOTTTTT with you guys, and we were fucking with it too. If you haven't heard it yet, you can peep it below.
Detroit's newfound sensation Dej Loaf has been enjoying immense success on the back of her smash hit "Try Me". She went from rapping for friends and "fomily" to making music for her quickly growing fanbase, and she isn't looking back. Sell Sole came out last week, and it goes to show that the young emcee is no one-hit-wonder, and has plenty of staying power in hip-hop. The mixtape includes the official "Try Me" remix featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Remy Ma, as well as "Blood" featuring Birdman and Young Thug, with whom Dej Loaf is rumored to be collaborating on an entire project.
1. Lil Boosie - Life After Deathrow
Though it only dropped a couple of days ago, this is the cream of the crop. Boosie Badazz has been on a tear since getting out of jail this Summer, consistently dropping heat left and right, from his "Lifestyle" remix to "Crazy". We finally got a full project from the Louisiana rapper, and he didn't disappoint. Meant to quench the thirst of his fans in anticipation of his upcoming double disc LP, Touchdown 2 Cause Hell, this tape should do just that. You can make the argument Boosie is making far better music now than he ever was before getting locked up, as he's now rapping like he's angry with a chip on his shoulder, telling his story and making up for lost time.
Wu-Tang Clan unveil the cover artwork for the upcoming album "A Better Tomorrow."
A couple Mondays ago, we counted down the best freestyles of the Fall so far, and now that we're into November, we figured we'd stay with that theme. This year, it seems as the temperature keeps getting colder, the music keeps getting hotter, as we've had a ton of new heat lately from hip-hop heavyweights and up-and-comers alike. Due to the influx of all the new dope music, we decided for this week's Top 10, we would take a look at the best mixtapes that have dropped this Fall. Just like last time, we'll include everything in September all the way up through today since we're still in the middle of Autumn.
No matter what when we make lists like this, there's always artists that just miss the cut with their release dates, so we're sorry to guys like Grafh, Jitta On The Track and Migos, who are all dropping new mixtapes this week. Make sure you get all of those when they drop as well as all the tapes on this list if you don't already have them. As usual, hit us in the comment section with your complaints feedback. Make sure you get at us on Twitter and Facebook with any we missed as well.
