Mike G has long been the secret weapon of the Odd Future crew. As long as Earl Sweatshirt remains imprisoned in an offshore oil derrick or whatever the hell, he’s the group’s best pure rapper. His calm, understated elegance works as a nice corrective to the rest of the bunch’s anarchic tendencies. And his 2010 Ali mixtape is sort of a lost gem in the hyped-up Odd Future catalog. And today, he’s given us Ali’s sequel: A quick 26-minute rap tape called Award Tour. Mike sounds strong throughout, and Vince Staples, who’s rapped on a ton of Odd Future joints without ever joining Odd Future, guests on almost every track. Download Award Tour for free here.
