UTG LIST: Best Mixtapes of 2012

2012 has been an incredible year for music. From rock, to pop, hip hop, and the world’s obsession with “Gangnam Style,” there have been many great offerings for fans of any genre of music. Hip hop, however, has been especially fortunate thanks to the rise of artists working harder than ever to ensure their mixtapes flow like albums. More than any other realm of music, hip hop is built on artists establishing relationships with the listener through the release of free material, and you could not throw a metaphorical rock through the blogosphere this year without finding a …

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Kid Cudi Ft King Chip – Just What I Am

Kid Cudi is helping kickoff the work week this morning with a new jam that is sure to keep your head bobbing all day long.

Pairing with King Chip (formerly known as Chip Tha Ripper), Kid Cudi has blessed the blogosphere with a new Indicud leak entitled “Just What I Am.” The track carries a very Man On The Moon: The End Of Day vibe, with plenty of faded synths and simple drums accompany each diary-like line spit by the emcees, but there’s still enough new to make it feel fresh.

UTG LIST: Five Essential “Tell Ya Friends” Tracks (W/Download!)

We talk a lot about the rappers that are giving back to their fans with mixtapes and other free material. Generally speaking, these are the rappers who are topping charts and touring the world, which is fine, but the truth is that most the UTG staff spends their time listening to artists of a different breed. We prefer those still hungry for the limelight, pouring their soul onto every verse they can while hustling their tracks to any and everyone that will listen. It is there, amongst the fight to make a dream your life, that we find the best …
