We folks at Edison are constantly looking out for and consuming the latest sounds, so a lot of our time is spent on DatPiff, Livemixtapes etc streaming the latest hot mixtape whilst working on some new designs, sometimes finding our new favourite artist in the process. This is how we first got introduced to the likes of Kendrick, A$AP Rocky and J. Cole who themselves are now up there with the greats.
Admittedly some of these picks are fairly obvious choices, but there is good reason for that, they are classic pieces of work, better than the majority of artists studio albums.
So here we do the near impossible task of picking (in no particular order) our 10 favourite mixtapes, these are all heavyweights and required listening.
- Juicy J - Blue Dream & Lean
- Kendrick Lamar - The Kendrick Lamar EP
- J. Cole - Friday Night Lights
- A$AP Rocky - Live. Love. A$AP.
- Chance the Rapper - 10 Days
- Big K.R.I.T. - K.R.I.T. Wiz Here
- Danny Brown - XXX
- Frank Ocean - Nostalgia, Ultra
- Hodgy Beats - Untitled EP
- The Weeknd - House of Balloons
