Tapemasta: Man, we must be really on the same page because i was looking for this joint. Certain mixtapes can make you wonder why the tape is better than album. This was instant classic among the masses worldwide !! Enjoy what we we doing because the next generation is going to have some problems !!
Hevehitta: I thought I would start off the week with a brand new pick for the “Greatest Mixtapes” list. This time around I picked the highly successful and popular Champ Is Here mixtape brought to you by DJ Green Lantern and Jadakiss. This is definitely a collectors item, and proved that mixtapes still can be successfully done if done correctly. Most people feel that all the classic mixtapes are from the 90’s, but some DJ’s have put out classic material in the 2000’s.
This mixtape still gets play from me to this day, and I feel it’s some of Jadakiss’s and Green Lantern best work. This is when aritst mixtapes were done correctly, and gave you more than just songs from that artist. You had blends on this mixtape, original production from DJ Green Lantern, and some actual DJ skill as well. I remember the streets buzzing like crazy when this mixtape dropped, and my local mixtape spot sold out of this mixtape in only a couple of hours. I still see some mixtape websites selling this one, so it shows me how popular the mixtape still is.
I hope you have enjoyed the picks Tapemasta, S.O.U.L and I have brought you so far on the “Greatest Mixtapes” list. We will have more picks very soon.
