my suit is blacknot

Yes yes, its that special time of the week. Hip hop is coming around your corner. In this post ill be focusing on legal hip hop mixtapes. But dont get it twisted, the mixtapes featured in here are no rickross gangsta grezill ones. Each group produced a quality "album" wich they called mixtape since they are giving it for FREE, buuuuut beat quality is there my friend.

1st off, the most known artist of the bunch : Chip Tha Ripper
Mister Chip might be considered a bit more rap-ish then Hiphop but his beat selection for his mixtape "The Cleveland Show" is quite interesting. Loads of electro beats but still comes with great hip hop production like the track produced by one of my favorite producer DJ Hi-Tek. To top it off, there is about 20 tracks in this mixtape, all produced by a bunch of different locals (OHIO) and Chip's friends.

2. Pac Div
2nd mixtape is from Pac Div. A west coast flavor with a lot talent. The mixtape "Church League Champions" was very well received by the rap/hiphop community. With all this hype they were able to reach the ears of The Neptunes, who will produce songs for their upcoming album called "Grown Kid Syndrome". You can compare their sound to similar west coast modern hiphop groups like The Cool Kids or Dom Kennedy. Enjoy, great videos too...

3. 6th sense
6th sense is a raper/producer/DJ from New York. The dude works his ass off to come up with fresh eastcoast hip hop. On his most recent mixtape "Vol 2 & 3", he produced mellow beats on which well known rapers like : Skyzoo, Chip Tha Ripper, The Kid Daytona spit verses.

  1. Dooooooooope. Pac Div have a good song called 'Shut Up', featuring the Cool Kids. Anyways, great post, Mr. Calibaba.

  2. Nice

    I am writing in hopes that you will put my song up on the blog. I am junior business student at the U of M - Twin Cities but hail from Madison, WI. Anyways it is a very different cover of "Just the Two of Us" in kind of an 808s and Heartbreak style (don't worry I didn't go overboard on the autotune). I produced the whole thing from my dorm room.


    Thanks for your time and look forward to hearing from you,
