2010: The Mixtape

Not a lot to say about this one. I’ve taken 18 of the best jams from the last year and thrown them all into one .zip file, slapped some custom artwork on there and threw ’em up on the internets for all to hear.

Due to my rampant OCD (thanks, Mom), I spent a long time working on several different tracklists before I settled on this one. It’ll barely fit on one disc and gives a pretty good sampling of the Best Music of 2010 (according to me). I’m already having second thoughts about a few of the selections on both the list and the mix, but I had to draw the line at some point and just be done with it. I will admit that there are a few songs on the mixtape that weren’t on any of the records from the list, but that’s just because it’s way easier to make a good song than to make a good album. Especially if you’re a rapper.

Chances are good that you might not like everything on here, but I can pretty much guarantee that you’ll like at least a few songs. Click here to get the jams. The full tracklist is after the jump…
