Childish Gambino’s DJ Drama hosted Gangsta Grillz mixtape is here. That’s right, you read that correctly: a Childish Gambino Gangsta Grillz mixtape. Hip-hop has really come a looong way from Lil Wayne spitting over the now infamous “Cannon” beat to Gambino. STN MTN finds Donald Glover’s rap alter ego Childish Gambino utilizing the platform as a half mixtape/half EP. For the STN MTN portion of the project Gambino will freestyle over some notable beats including “Move That Dope” and “Southern Hospitality” alongside original material. There’s also a concept at play here, something about money made from the EP keeping Kauai clean? Who truly knows when you’re dealing with Gambino. Stream/download STN MTN after the jump.

Here’s a bit a curveball to your morning: Lil Kim has released a mixtape in 2014. And it’s entitled Hard Core after her 1996 classic of the same name. The mixtape features guest appearances from Yo Gotti, Cassidy, Jadakiss, and French Montana. After the jump.
He’s not a rapper; he’s a rock star. His career can’t be defined by a genre. These premises dominate Bobby Ray’s mixtape, a follow-up to the first one of the same name. But there are many conventional 16-16-16 songs on this project and thumping hip-hop drum kits. Lucky for you, he’s released it on datpiff for you to listen to it for Free 99. Listen after the jump.
Lil Durk, the Chicago spitter getting into beef with Game, shouted out by his peers like Chance the Rapper, and bringing mixtape heat for the summer like Migos before him — thank him now. He’s a straight shooter in more ways than one, telling ChIraq bedtime stories for his intrigued listeners. Production mostly by Young Chop for the Drill Trill, but some highlight moments by other promising producers like Cardo and Dree the Drummer. Full stream after the jump.
I’m a big fan of Mayer Hawthorne and I have eagerly awaited his upcoming collaborative album with producer (and one of Mayer’s childhood friends), 14KT. Much to my chagrin, I will have a chance to listen to this before street date as Santa Monica’s KCRW unveiled a stream of the album today. Hit the jump for a link to listen yourself.
It isn’t farfetched to infer that California native and producer extraordinaire Flying Lotus was inspired by Del The Funky Homosapien, Dan The Automator and Kid Koala’s ahead-of-its-time underground opus Deltron 3030.
