Oh it’s Holiday season! I’m a huge fan of rap mixtapes and an even bigger fan of Gucci Mane, which is why I suppose DJ Holiday is my preferred DJ of choice. Well, at least spanning roughly 2008-2012. Don’t get me wrong, DJ Drama was dope, too, and Gucci even appeared on a few of Drama’s tapes (The Burrrprint being the best of their collaborations.) But I don’t know, I prefer Holiday over all other mixtape DJs out there. He’s an OG at the game, which is why his new mixtape is entitled God Bless the Mixtape, and houses some huge features. Like this one, “Let Me at Em,” finding DJ Holiday recruiting three big names. Problem, French Montana and Wale all join Holiday for “Let Me at Em” a track that will appear on the forthcoming God Bless the Mixtape. Listen after the jump.

Gambino fits well on this West Coast vibe, framing some of that bodacious pimp talk in his preppy vernacular. Problem jumps it off insistently and creates the urgency this pairing needs to succeed. Check the LA Leakers freestyle after the jump.
