The digital age has made it easier to amass thousands of tracks, run our asses outside, and say we're on top of the music game. It's also made it easier to record stuff and put it out. But, what's kind of been lost in this new digital age is the mixtape. Yes, we've had album-quality mixtapes drop, and those are great. Big K.R.I.T. continuously drops mixtapes better than a lot of albums, for instance. Wale had a solid album-mixtape recently and his older stuff (such as More About Nothing) is borderline classic at times. But, I'm talking the DJ Drama Gangsta Grillz tapes with a slew of artists on 'em only held together by a loose theme and a buttload of bass-heavy anthems. In the paraphrased words of Chance, "am I the only writer [who] still care[s] about [those type of] mixtapes?"
Thankfully, the Digital Trapstars have heard my cries (apparently). Their latest release Screens on Lock 3 is just what you need. Nineteen tracks of just fire, summer-ready music that aren't tied together by anything other than just the energy. Sometimes, you need just that in a mixtape. Stream the project below.
