Folks have been bombarded with a nicer than usual percentage of cool independent Hip-Hop mixtapes as of late, which is ALWAYS a plus over around this way - if anything, it's putting a sis to work a lot more in regards to posting music on the site to share with y'all. :)
NOTE: Trust, usually for every 1 mixtape that's great, there are about 5 that are meh/so-so and 10 that are just a hot mess of gunshots, yelling over a mic & imitation DJ Drama/DJ Kay Slay/DJ Clue/DJ Khaled yelling over 72% of the song, which could be an "exclusive" 1000000 DJs already have.
Anyway, the latest independent Hip-Hop mixtape that gets the FuseBox Radio/BlackRadioIsBack.com Seal of Black Music Approval is from California's own BlackSoultan.
This MC has performed & worked with dope Hip-Hop folks around his way in L.A. such as X-Clan, Slick Rick, Medusa, Acelyone, Soleternity (music producer for Young Buck, Bone Crusher, Lil Scrappy & Bizzy Bone), Trenseta, Madam Brown and Flawliss Victory. BlackSoultan's 2nd album, Nuclear Winter, will be dropping in the near future.
I'm definitely feeling BlackSoultan's flow and rhyme scheme (which matches up great with his production & beat selection), as well as the fact that the subject matter he rhymes about is diverse - no iCoonery lyrics allowed.
In the meantime, cop the free download of BlackSoultan's latest mixtape, Angels & Demons, below, give the project a listen and let us know what you think - hope you enjoy it!
