The Tape Deck 2018: Volume #4

Back at it with a new cover art style. 2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted (lol). There's lots of great rap music out there these days. In general, 2018's been a really good year. That's a big reason why I'm trying to get consistent with these compilations again tbh.

I'm never gonna stop making these available via download. And I enjoy dropping full-length versions on Mixcloud, so I'll continue doing that, too. But now I've decided to ALSO keep a running Spotify playlist going. Check the sidebar or click here. Even though I don't like to rely too heavily on "the cloud" (Spotify, Tidal, etc.), I understand why people love it. So... You asked for it, you got it.

That being said, as of this writing, only 20/24 tracks from The Tape Deck Vol. 4 are available on Spotify. Oh, well... LOL! That's a big, big reason why I could never drop a complete samples mix on Spotify. Too many obscure tracks. Speaking of which, I know you've all been patiently waiting for me to get back on the samples s**t. I will. I intend to drop a Samples of the Year compilation in December. So stay tuned for that.

In the meantime, please enjoy The Tape Deck 2018 Volume #4. I appreciate the Mixcloud spins, comments, downloads, subscriptions, follows, etc. But most importantly, just enjoy the music and support the artists (if you can). And as always... Turn it up!!
