Yonas does it again, the man can make music and his incredible lyricism does nothing but show that NYC is all about good hip hop. It’s got his youtube sensation hit on it Pumped Up Kicks and it’s got plenty of other jams/freestyles/and collabs. Working with phenomenal artists like Logic and Brother Ali. There is no reason that this shouldn’t be one of the fastest and highest rated downloaded mixtapes this summer. I can’t say enough about Yonas and his true talent. Don’t believe me listen yourself and download here.
Huey Mack released his new mixtape about 4 hours ago. Just a boy with a dream and some skills to spit over a fire beat. He speaks on real life situations that young adults deal with, like his friends being hooked on drugs and what it’s like to be a broke ass college student with a mind fixed on success.
Check it out here and download.
Kevin Cossom just released his mixtape, “Hook Vs. Bridge 2″ on April 18th. This is a follow up from his EP in 2009, titled “Hook Vs. Bridge”.
He has an amazing voice and some catchy hooks, verses and bridges (pun intended). Be on the look out for this guy because this mixtape had about twenty five thousand views and six thousand downloads within the first three days of being released.

As I stated yesterday, JD Era was releasing a new mixtape today, titled “No Handouts”. This was released earlier today but I just finally had the time to throw it up here, so I’m sorry about the wait.

Hope you enjoy!

New Jon Connor mixtape, The People’s Rapper LP, released Friday, April 13th.
Just from looking at the album art, you’ll be able to see the relevance to the classic hip hop album, The Marshall Mathers LP. Once you listen to this tape, you’ll see why. All the tracks are spit over some of the most well known instrumentals from Eminem’s career. Normally, I’d not even want to hear anybody but Eminem on one of his beats, but Connor tears up every track with such honesty and passion.
He lays his heart out on every track, one of the realist tapes I’ve ever heard. You could just tell how much he loves it.

The game needs more rappers like Aziz. With his latest mixtape, he drops a project with not only incredibly dope tracks but also a killer concept. Aziz tackles a beat from each year he has been alive, hence “TwentyOne.” This tape brings you on a journey through the hip-hop soundscape while Aziz shows off his lyrical capabilities. Oh yeah, and he’s from New Hampshire which happens to be where yours truly hails from. Be sure to download the tape below. Enjoy.

This new mixtape from the 18 year old phenom Cris Cab was released just minutes ago and to be completely honest, I am giving it my first listen as we speak. I am a huge fan of Cris and he delivers some of his best material to date on this tape. Now I know it isn’t hip-hop, but a little variety never hurt anyone and Cris’ reggae style and laid back vocals will certainly remedy any stressful schedule. Download “Echo Boom” below, sit back, and chill!

Here’s is a new mixtape from an up-and-coming Massachusetts rapper named Ricky Genius. I found this mixtape through a friend of his on Facebook and, to be completely honest, I wasn’t expecting much from it (you know how local rappers can be). But to my surprise, this tape is real impressive from start to finish and proves that he isn’t “just another rapper.” Genius showcases his talents over a variety of classic hip-hop beats from Nicki Minaj to Mos Def and even to Lil B. There’s not too many original beats on the tape, but I can ensure you this project will get his name out there and, with the right amount of publicity, the producers will start pouring in. I don’t know too much about Ricky Genius, but I look forward to seeing what is in this kid’s future. Hopefully there will be plenty of mixtapes and albums coming soon, but for now enjoy this mixtape, check out some tracks below, and download “Just Anotha Rapper” in its entirety from the link below.
There has been talk of B.O.B and T.I. working on a collaboration album and after hearing this track it sounds like a great idea! Mos Def just makes the icing on this hip hop cake because let me tell you the beat is too simple, so these 3 artists just pulled all stops and murdered this song lyrically. You’re welcome ahead of time. #Snapbacknation
