Mixtapes, albums; when it comes to hip-hop, the lines are really blurred. Most times, mixtapes are free bodies of work that rappers drop to build a buzz for their label-released albums, which they intend to sell.
The artist-driven mixtape has become an important tool for most rappers like 50 Cent, Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa and Drake. Before Future dropped his latest album DS2 on Friday (July 17), the Atlanta trap rap star released a trio of critically acclaimed mixtapes in the lead-up (Monster, Beast Mode and 56 Nights).
Seeing as how DS2 was just released, it is entirely too soon to see how Future’s third LP measures up against the mixtapes that preceded it, but here are 11 times the mixtape was definitely better than the album.
