An absolutely killer mixtape full of great tracks (with just a couple duds). If you like hip-hop at all you are sure to find something you'll love on here. I'm really loving Coming Out Hard and International Playboy. Can be downloaded directly from the 10 Deep Website. Alt link if needed.
"10.Deep has linked up with The Money Making Jam Boys’ for their first mixtape release, “The Prestige: Jam Boy Magic”. The Money Making Jam Boys (consisting of Black Thought from the Grammy-winning Roots crew, Dice Raw, Truck North, P.O.R.N. and STS) join Kid Cudi, Wale and Donnis as artists that we have supported and championed as a brand.
Seamlessly mixed by The Press Play Show’s own Mick Boogie and Terry Urban, The Prestige – sixteen tracks of hot lava – draws equally upon original production by the likes of Frank Knuckles and ?uestlove, and a revisitation of several golden era hip-hop tracks. Mix that with cuts by the legendary Jazzy Jeff and you get what many who’ve been privy to preview listens state is the best mixtape release we’ve had to-date. We’ll reserve our judgement and let you decide."

Late to the party. With the top 50 albums this year I didn't bother uploading all the albums. I linked to the ones I've posted before, and most are still there, otherwise I've just linked to a band's myspace. In order to further highlight the best of last year I made a playlist for you lucky folks.
With this playlist I wanted to share some of my favorite songs of the year and hopefully shed some light on some overlooked stuff. It's not all my favorite songs but mostly from releases I think not enough people have heard. I didn't put them in order of favorites but instead wanted the playlist to move smoothly from genre to genre, climaxing with the epic and heavy and then coming down with a couple slower, ambient tracks. It's almost 4 hours long but worth listening to.
Oh and the best tracks of the year are Crippled Black Phoenix's We Forgotten Who We Are, Man's Gin's Solid Gold Telephone and Gifts From Enola's Alagoas. So fucking good!
