Complex Mag. has put out a list of the Top 10 Mixtapes of the 2000s. I enjoy these type of lists a lot, but I also hate them because of Who is writing them. Since 2002 mixtapes have really taken off because of the internet. It totally changed the way mixtapes we distributed. Now you pay nothing and just download it on the web. Very few people are buying mixtapes these days. It really is amazing how the mixtape game has changed in the past 5 years.
With 50 Cent and Lil Wayne at spots #1 and #2, while both having 2 mixtapes each on this list. Showing 50 Cent and Lil Wayne have truly ran the 2000’s in mixtapes. With my personal all time favorite mixtape Tha Drought 3 finally getting the credit it deserves in this list. It showed that Wayne can get on any track and kill the beat. With his amazing metaphors and impressive lyrics, that to me gave him The Best Rapper Alive status. In the past though 50 seemed to be the running mixtapes. With 50 Cent Is The Future, that raised him from underground to Shady Aftermath. 50 Cent Is The Future took 50 to the next level. Once 50 was signed with Shady Aftermath he dropped No Mercy, No Fear with G-Unit as a celebration mixtape on the signing. Now that is when great music is made, good and fun energy in this mixtape. You can tell they are all having a good time.
Many great artists top this list Young Jeezy, T.I, Clipse, Joe Budden, The Diplomats, and a surprise to me Drake. I don’t know what to say about Drake being on this list. This is a list I can agree on. Shouts to Complex for a great list.
