The Tape Deck '16: Volume #2

The greatest, most consistent (barring 2015, heh...) online mixTAPE series is officially back! Enjoy! Here's just a few notes and recommendations based on this volume of The Tape Deck: 1) Fans of Ka ought to support his new 2-track release, The Superfly Single, here. 2) Anderson .Paak's album is out. It's good. Very, very good. Check out my GIF review if you haven't by now and make sure to cop the album. 3) Freddie Gibbs sat down with NPR to discuss a range of issues. Highlight of the interview: "I don't think that I get put up there with the J. Coles and the Kendrick Lamars and guys of that nature when I definitely think that I'm rapping on they level and definitely higher." 4) Z-Ro's new EP is dope, but you already knew that.

Aight, that's all for now. Enjoy Volume #2... And as always... Turn it up!!

Once again, I'd like to thank all the amazing HHIReaders who have contributed to the tip jar so far. It's truly humbling and appreciated! To those who haven't, yet have been following the site for years, if you're feeling generous, please consider a contribution to Hip Hop Is Read. It's not tax-deductible, but if my work receives a nice amount of financial support, I can promise I'll keep doing this for years to come... Thank you!
