Hip-Hop Mixtape Nark Rap

New Mixtapes: The Narkerator & Narkhood

IMG954756I bet you didn’t think you’d see another rap/hip-hop mixtape from me… Fair enough, since the last Nark dropped in March. Since you’ve been patient, here are two playlists with favorites from the first half of 2014. There are plenty of appearances by old favorites (T.I., Hova, Common, Fabolous), DJ Mustard produced anthems (“Down On Me”, “Who Do You Love”, “No Mediocre”, “Sanctified”) and promising newcomers (Kevin Gates, Young Droog, Azad Right). Drake essentially continued his victory lap from 2013 with loosies like “Draft Day” and “0 to 100/Change-Up, but don’t tell Big KRIT, who calls out the Toronto emcee on “Mount Olympus”. Probably the biggest surprise of 2014 was the return of a quality 50 Cent. Curtis’ own “Pilot” is probably the best song he’s released in years, while he also contributed an enjoyable verse on “Cuffin’ Season”. The newly reunited G-Unit sounded almost triumphant on “Come Up” too.

As I’ve gotten older I’ve came to appreciate Cam’Ron a lot more. The Harlem legend is comedic without being corny, has excellent production, can switch flow to varying speeds and is usually throwing jabs at the industry’s heavyweights (“It’s gonna be a hot summer” anyone?). Killa Cam also can claim to owning my favorite track of both mixtapes, “Dipshits”. It has the perfect nostalgic recipe with nible rhymes from Cam, reuniting with Dipset member Juelz Santana, a classic beat from A-Trak & Just Blaze, plus a semi-hilarious outro from former Roc-a-fella co-leader Dame Dash.

Let me know your favorites in the comments.
