I wrote a feature about mixtapes. I’m sure a lot of you have heard of most the tapes I talk about but either way it’s a pretty good summation of what I thought was a truly great year for pseduo-underground Southern rap. If you haven’t heard some of the shit I write about— Boosie, B.o.B , Gucci Mane, etc.— then there are Datpiff links to click on.
Marco Polo’s actually good? I always thought Gucci Mane was garbage, actually, but some of the songs you mentioned were okay, and he does snap on Shopping Spree.
