I wasn’t born into the Bay Life, nor did I even know about it until living in San Francisco for some time. But being a music fanatic has really turned me onto the hyphy music that the Bay Area has to offer. Most people are completely oblivious to the deep-based, heavy hi-hatted beats that most rappers in California love on the low. If you’re a fan of Bay music, well then here’s a mixtape to function to. Including a mix of BIG headliners, League of Starz comes with nothing but bangers with all your favorite artists from Young California. If you are not familiar yet the League, it’s a family of Southern California producers responsible for a lot of your favorite party hits in the last couple of years. The project features 2 Chainz, Tyga, IAMSU, Problem, Clyde Carson, and has co-signs from Snoop Dogg, E-40, and a DJ Amen. Californian’s will know exactly what I’m talking about – for everyone else, take notes. This is the future of party music.
Luckily, this project is FREE FREE FREE. Go to the download here.

Now that the blogosphere has had time to recover from the massive shockwave that hit it upon the release of #INNANETAPE, I figured it was time to give my spin on things.
The tape starts with a sound reminiscent of Kids These Days, a live drum drum pattern and the screech of an electric guitar. However, the former KTD frontman does not play it safe by any means and is constantly pushing sound boundaries throughout the tape. Mensa calls on board fellow Chi-town representatives, Rockie Fresh, Chance the Rapper, and BJ The Chicago Kid to add some Midwest flare to the tape, as well as TDE conglomerate, Ab-Soul.
From top to bottom this project is one of my favorites of the year so far. Check out the stand-out tracks, “Orange Soda”, “Hollywood, LA”, “Holy Holy”, and “YNSP”, but be sure to give the full tape a listen!

I haven’t been this excited for a mixtape since Chance dropped Acid Rap, and we all know how that one turned out. Anywho, Flatbush ZOMBiES released their brand spanking new 19 track mixtape with two features, Action Bronson and Danny Brown. These guys are the next ones to blow, especially after seeing them at North Coast Music Festival Labor Day weekend. Peep the tape below and make sure to download it as well.

A little while ago I posted Lucki Eck$’ video, Everything Out$ide, a song that really put Lucki on a lot of people’s radars, but today, we receive his debut mixtape and it’s a must download. With a flow comparable to Joey Bada$$, Lucki Eck$ definitely has the makings of a star. Peep the tape below and make sure to download it as well. Be on the lookout for this kid down the line, you’ll be hearing a lot more of him.

I know that Juicy J has coined the term “stay trippy,” but I think if anyone other than Taylor Gang’s favorite stoner fit the mold for that motto, it would be Beau Young Prince. BYP is all about spreading positivity and good vibes and it’s really a movement that fans can grapple on to. His latest mixtape, has all of those elements. Tapestires and Javelins gives us a look into the mind of the DMV native and shows us what he has to offer. The result, could not be more impressive. I’ve been following BYP’s career since I started blogging and I believe that this is his best project to date. The project is embedded below, but take a trip to Datpiff to fully download this masterpiece.

3 million views after randomly deciding to do a remix to Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend”, Portland’s own PropaneLv drops off a formal mixtape of some of the best remix efforts in hiphop in the last year. Taking the traditional mixtape route, Lv comes together with HipHopEarly’s official DJ, DJ Reddy Rell, to drop the project. With the YouTube remix/cover/rendition lane a popular one in today’s industry, it’s done exactly what it needed to for Lv: solidify his talent and draw attention to his potential. On that note, he is very adamant that his debut album will be an eye opener this fall.
Varsity Blues drops September 30th.

Well, for those of you that didn’t think Jetpack Jones loved you, here’s 8 track to prove to you he doesn’t. You all know how much free music the Lakewood native blesses us with, but this is something else. In addition to releasing a full mixtape in this coming weeks, he gives us a PRE TAPE, filled with 8 solid songs I guarantee you can all chill out to. Jetpack Jones is easily the hardest working rapper I’ve ever had the opportunity to present to you all on FNT, so please support him by downloading his tape via our buddies at Hot New Hip Hop below and grabbing the full project, Beyond Infinity, when it drops.
