best of 2008 mixtape

its no secret, but maybe not widely televised that Cheesegrater and myself are into hiphop. Cheesegrater has some of the best Kool Keith records ive ever seen (that Santessa record is infectious!), and i used to DJ a hip hop night with Efrem (

i came across this mixtape a few days ago from Hype Machine, and its pretty fucking awesome. my only real complaint is the same for pretty much any mixtape, and thats when they continuously announce who the DJ is for that particular mixtape.

"american boy" is one of my favorite jams right now, and this version is pretty cool, with Jay-Z dropping a live verse. Jay-Z's collab/ mash-up with Oasis is pretty cool too. im kinda sick of hearing that MIA song, especially after Slumdog Millionaire, but the version on here is cool. once you get past the first couple of songs, it starts to rock pretty hard. give it a shot, broaden your fuckin horizons, son.
