Mixtape Masters: Best of the Midwest: MN Hip-Hop

A few editions ago, I featured some Best of the Midwest. It was so much fun realizing the extent of great music we have in the Twin Cities (and beyond) that I decided to do a few more Best of the Midwest.

This week it's the Hip-Hop edition and it really isn't "Midwest" so much as just "Minneapolis". I'm sure there are some other great artists coming out of the Midwest, but these are the ones I know. Mostly it's due to our radio station, 89.3 The Current. It's one of our three public radio stations (news, classical, and the current).  They focus on local music as well as other indie/alt/misc. music, and it's my main station.  No yelling, crazy noises, weird talk show crap, whatever... just sweet music with normal people!  If we ever move out of state, I'm totally going to be streaming it online.  (And if you are looking for something cool to listen to where they don't yell at you, check it out!)

Anyway, enough of my plug for public radio, on to the music!  This mix features artists from Rhymesayers Entertainment, a local label.  Hope you like it!

Ciao, babers!
