..so once again, it's that time of the year where I present my annual Hip Hop round up. This year, it's a 2 hour special...
Once again, it's been another interesting and exciting year, with the standard ratchet club tracks, to the whole EDM/Twerk craze, the fresh new music emerging from the West Coast, plus a load of dope 90's influenced cuts, as well as great music from the UK.
Yes, some of the more obvious club tracks are not on the mix, but it's not about putting together a generic selection of the same club tracks that every other DJ is rinsing... As a result, there's definitely something for everyone on this mixtape. Big ups to Lazlow for the introduction as well.
Honorable mentions go to Giggs, J Spades, ItsNate, Mac Miller, CJ Fly, Riff Raff, Logic, Eminem, Flatbush Zombies, Run The Jewels, Trae Da Truth, Black Milk and Freddie Gibbs. It's a shame I couldn't fit you all in to this mix.
Anyhow, whether you're on the move, chilling at home, or cruising the streets of Los Santos in your Truffade Adder, I hope you enjoy this mixtape.
Thanks for listening/downloading, and feel free to leave your comments. Big up.

Sampha's "Too Much" is definitely one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've heard in a long while. Drake did a pretty good job of sampling it for his album, but the original version with just the piano is incredibly haunting.
I wanted to make it more DJ-friendly, but keep the same, stripped back vibe, so here's my edit of this amazing track.
