Cyke!

www.enliten.me

The star-packed cyphers at this year’s BET’s Hip-Hop Awards were definitely the most talked about events of the night. What I noticed most was Wiz Khalifa’s recycled verse from “The Check Point” that’s on his collab mixtape with Curren$y. Come on, Wiz – you’re better than that! Here’s the video of the cypher in question:

Part 1: Wiz Khalifa, Bones Brigante, Yelawolf & Raekwon The Chef

Here’s the original track:

Curren$y & Wiz Khalifa – The Check Point mp3

I know Wiz isn’t the best freestyle rapper as he discusses here:

But he could’ve at least come up with an original verse for this event.

The G.O.O.D. Music cypher was definitely the highlight for me. Big Sean’s verse was my personal fav:

Part 4: Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean, Cyhi The Prynce & Common

Here are the rest of the cyphers:

Part 2: Ice Cube, OMG, DoughBoy, Rev Run, Diggy Simmons & Jo-Jo

Part 3: Busta Rhymes, Reek Da Villian, Zawcain & Mickey Factz

Part 5: Royce Da 5’9″, Tyga, Kuniva & Diamond

The Best Mixtapes of 2009

www.enliten.me

1. Drake – So Far Gone

When a comparatively bad retail-version of your CD sells 73,000 copies in the first week, while a very good mixtape-version is available online for free, your album is #1 in my book. Also, props for songs featuring Sweden’s Lykke Li and Peter Bjorn & John. Everyone better already have at least some version of this mixtape in their library, and get ready for ‘Thank Me Later‘ in 2010.

[Featured artists: Lil Wayne, Trey Songz, Bun B, Omarion, Lloyd, Lykke Li, Santogold & Peter Bjorn & John]

2. Wiz Khalifa – Flight School

I still listen to this CD pretty regularly. ‘Flight School’ showcases Wiz better than any of his other CD’s in 2009 by far.

[Featured artists: Kev Da Hustla & John Record]

3. Kid Cudi – Dat Kid From Cleveland

Kid Cudi had a big year, and this is his best mixtape effort for 2009.

[Featured artists: Kanye West, Common, Wale, Chip Tha Ripper, Consequence, Kevin Rudolf, Jackie Chain, 88-Keys & Sharam]

4. Big Sean – UKnowBigSean Vol. 2

I really wish Big Sean would release another mixtape, but this one will have to satisfy until that happens. This tape is solid throughout.

[Featured artists: Mike Posner, Santigold, Jay K, Earlly MacMillion, Dusty McFly, Keely & Pat Piff]

5. Lil Wayne – No Ceilings

Lil Wayne proves he is still ridiculously creative and has unlimited punch lines… gives me flashbacks to his mixtape haydays a few years ago.

[Featured artists: Birdman, Tyga, Jae Millz, Gudda Gudda, Nicki Minaj, Short Dawg, Shanell & Lucci Lou]

6. The Cool Kids – Gone Fishing

The Cool Kids drop another solid mixtape. I wish these guys came out with more music overall, but you can’t knock their consistent quality.

[Featured artists: Ryan Leslie, Shorty K, Jahda & Tennille]

7. Gucci Mane – Gucci Land

Gucci is the most popular rapper right now; I can see ‘The State vs. Radric Davis‘ selling between 250K & 500K this week… it’s a good CD. I had this mixtape, ‘Gucci Land’, on replay more than any of his others in the past year.

[Featured artists: OJ Da Juiceman, The Game, Timbaland, Fabolous, Nicki Minaj, Chip Tha Ripper, Dem Franchise Boyz, Yung L.A., Gorilla Zoe, Shawty Lo, Freeky Zekey & more]

8. B.o.B. – B.o.B. vs. Bobby Ray

B.o.B./Bobby Ray/This guy is definitely one of the most talented of the new artists with his versatility rapping and producing.

[Featured artists: Kanye West, T.I., Charles Hamilton, Asher Roth, OJ Da Juiceman, Bun B, Mickey Factz, Big Kuntry, Mac Boney, Playboy Tre & Killa Mike]

9. Mike Posner – One Foot Out The Door

My only non-rap mixtape for the year, and it is Mike Posner for a reason. The songs featuring Big Sean are the highlights for me.

[Featured artists: Kid Cudi, Big Sean, Saigon, Bun B, Clinton Sparks, Freddie Gibbs, GLC & XV]

10. Wale – Back to the Feature

Another rapper that had a big year; this is Wale’s best overall mixtape effort in 2009.

[Featured artists: Big Sean, Talib Kweli, Mike Posner, Bun B, Joell Ortiz, Lady Gaga, Currensy, Memphis Bleek, Peter Bjorn & John, Young Chris, J Cole, Royce Da 5’9, Joe Budden & more]

11. Tyga – The Free Album

Yeah, I couldn’t narrow my list to 10 selections, and I even had a hard time deciding between this mixtape and Tyga’s more recent, ‘The Potential‘.

[Featured artists: Lil Wayne, Gata & Short Dawg]

Wale & B.o.B.

Both of these mixtapes are prettttty good. I could see B.o.B. and Wale getting realllllly popular soon with the quality of songs they’ve been coming out with recently. Download these:

B.o.B. Who the Fuck is B.o.B.?

Wale & 9th Wonder – Back To The Feature

[Featured Artists Include: Talib Kweli, Big Sean, Memphis Bleek, Joe Budden, Lady Gaga, Black Thought, Currensy, Royce Da 5’9, Peedi Peedi, Mike Posner, Freeway, Beanie Sigel, Jean Grae, Joell Ortiz, Peter, Bjorn & John, Bun B & more]

 

My fav line so far on this mixtape would be from the song “Night Life” when Wale says, “Fuck your little sneakers; I got property in Beaverton.” Reppin Oregon. And Peter, Bjorn & John are from Sweden.
