The Best Tracks From This Month’s Mixtapes: July 2012

Even in the days where storage is cheap and stuff like iTunes Match makes your MP3 library virtually bottomless, it can still be pretty annoying to download mixtape after mixtape, many of which showcase a cluster of highlights amongst anotherwise grey sea of megabytes. So, today, we’re positing something we hope is a helpful digest called “The Best Tracks From This Month’s Mixtapes,” itself a mixtape culling from our ongoing Mixtape Of The Week. July was a robust month on the tape front, with releases from the likes of Azealia Banks, Meyhem Lauren, Chief Keef partner Lil Reese and more, so hopefully that constitutes a strong best-of collection for our inaugural edition. Oh, and I also tacked on that amazing FlyLo/Earl collaboration, so I hope you’ll indulge me breaking the rules a little (though Singles Program is kind of like a mixtape, right? RIGHT?!). Download here. Track list below.

01 Flatbush Zombies – “Thug Waffle”
02 Flatbush Zombies – “JupiterSound” (Feat. Kilo Kish)
03 Childish Gambino – “Toxic” (Feat. Danny Brown)
04 Childish Gambino – “Unnecessary” (Feat. Schoolboy Q & Ab-Soul)
