Mixtape Mondays: Donnis - Diary of an ATL Brave


Mixtape Mondays are back! My name is Greg from GregsHipHop.com and I’ll be runnin’ this wonderful corner of Jetcomx from now on. If you ever wanna get at me I’m Greg@jetcomx.com. I’ll be back here every Monday so enjoy.

Diary of an ATL Brave is the first mixtape project by Atlanta native Donnis and dropped back on August 20. I didn’t get the chance to give a listen until almost a week later on a plane back to the east coast and I gotta say I listened to it three times through on that flight.

So lets get right into it. Donnis has a southern swagga and drawl but his flow has substance and is as hard as any NY lyricist. He’s got some good one liners but his strength is really how his thoughts develop through a verse and even between verses. There’s a real hunger in his songs and the result is a really high quality project. If you just listen to beats you can get by on this but you’ll be missing the stories in the songs that Donnis tells so well.

Team Teamwork Presents The Good-ass Remixes Vol. 1

Team Teamwork The Good Ass Remixes Vol. 1

Just stumbled across this collection of sick remixes that was released the other day from Team Teamwork, thanks to my girl Courtney. It’s so good, that I couldn’t wait around for Mixtape Mondays — I had to post it now in time for the weekend. The Good-ass Remixes Vol. 1 is the second release by Team Teamwork. Their first was The Ocarina of Rhyme, which was a mash-up album featuring hip-hop and the soundtrack of the video game classic The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time.

On The Good-ass Remixes Vol. 1, Team Teamwork mixes and mashes T.I., Lil Wayne, Kanye, Nas, Talib Kweli, UGK, Slim Thug, Ghostface, Outkast, and others with the likes of Sigur Rós, Iron & Wine, Elliott Smith, M83, Múm and more. The result is wonderfully danceable and catchy. I’d consider Team Teamwork to be like The Hood Internet‘s hot sister. The group is relatively unknown at the moment, but I would not be surprised at all to see them playing at Coachella or Bonnaroo in a few years time.

Mixtape Mondays: Kid CuDi and the Day 'N' Nite Remixes

What’s up everyone. We’re going to keep it short and sweet for today’s mixtape. Kid CuDi’s stuff seems to be getting played on every radio station across the country right now. So, I figured that it would be appropriate to post up a few remixes of his biggest hit, “Day ‘N’ Nite.” On this particular mixtape, there are 17 different versions of the song produced by people like Pitbull, Jim Jones, Trey Songz, Terry Urban, and of course Crookers.

Watch Jim Jones’ version below:

Mixtape Mondays: Drake - So Far Gone

Drake So Far Gone Mixtape

This week’s Mixtape Mondays installment is a continuation of last week’s. So Far Gone is Drake‘s latest mixtape, and many people agree that it’s his best work so far. Personally, I feel like it’s at least as good as Comeback Season if not better. There’s a whole lot more singing happening on this mixtape than on the previous one. The standout tracks on So Far Gone are “Little Bit (feat. Lykke Li)” and “Best I Ever Had.” The latter has been getting some serious radio play since the album dropped back in mid-February. On Drake’s MySpace, “Best I Ever Had” has over 21 million plays.

Mixtape Mondays: Tor & Sufjan Stevens Present Illinoize the Remix Tape

Tor/Sufjan Stevens Illinoize

First of all, I just wanted to say that due to popular demand, Mixtape Mondays is back and here to stay. When Mixtape Mondays went on hiatus, so many people emailed /commented demanding that it needed to come back ASAP. We answered. From now one, you can expect that on each and every Monday there will be a new piping hot mixtape for you to get your hands on. Now that that’s out of the way, check out this mixtape.

Montréal-based producer Tor really lets his creativity and skills shine on Illinoize, a Sufjan Stevens-based remix tape. Tor pairs together the two very different genres of indie folk-rock and hip-hop to create an amazingly hypnotic and likeable blend of sounds. The music of multi-instrumentalist and indie hero Sufjan Stevens is perfectly matched to the sick vocals of Aesop Rock, Big Daddy Kane, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), C.L. Smooth, Outkast, Brother Ali, and Grand Puba. This is a must download. Shout out to @jimmy_morris for bringing this to my attention!
