Diplo Presents Free Gucci - Best Of the Cold War Mixtapes
This is the best thing I've heard in a long time. As Gucci Mane sits in a jail cell for violating his probation, Diplo organized this mixtape with beats by the likes of Flying Lotus, Zomby and Memory Tapes, who have made some of the most interesting music-with-a-mouse-pad in a while. Gucci's verses drip all over these guys' remixes.
It's nice to see the promise of Missy/Timbaland, Neptunes/Clipse and grime/dubstep/whatever riddims pay off to start the 'tweens off with songs that sound like they're from the best part of the future.
