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]

The Kickdrums & N.A.S.A.

Both The Kickdrums & N.A.S.A. have been buzzin on the music blogs lately. Soooo I thought I would post some of their new stuff. Both of these artists employ an almost DJ Khaled amount of featured artists, but I think a lot of their songs are dope (and they don’t yell like an idiot throughout the entire track haha).

The Kickdrums dropped a pretty legit mixtape this last week called “Smash The System”. Featured artists include KiD CuDi, Talib Kweli, Joe Budden, Jay-Z, Charles Hamilton, Kanye West, Kidz In The Hall & Lil Wayne. Not to mention the Banksy love on the cover. Check it out:

00-the_kickdrums-smash_the_system-cover-2009

Download the mixtape here

N.A.S.A. stands for North America South America. They have made a few really sik songs recently with the help of artists like Kanye West, M.I.A., The Cool Kids, Ghostface Killah, Scarface, Santogold & Lykke Li (Sweden Represent!). I think their debut CD drops on February 16th. Here are 3 of their most recent songs (I think my fav right now is “Whachadoin’?”); check ’em out:

N.A.S.A. feat. The Cool Kids, Ghostface Killah, Scarface & DJ AM – The Mayor

N.A.S.A. feat. Spank Rock, M.I.A., Santogold & Nick Zinner – Whachadoin?

N.A.S.A. feat. Kanye West, Santogold & Lykke Li – Gifted

If you’re feelin’ either of these artists, I suggest you research them more online… maybe check out their myspace pages or something by clicking their names above (or if it’s one of the featured artists, just google ’em). Let me know what you think though!
