Mix it Up.

A double dose of mixtape from a couple young guns, no Emilio Estevez. Both of these cats are garnering some serious buzz thanks to their recent work. They also happen to both be slim, tattooed, light-skinned, glasses-wearing emcees with lyrics for days. The comparisons should end there.

Wiz Khalifa has been making noise on the mixtape circuit for some time now, but with his newly acquired membership in XXL’s Freshmen class and the pending release of his contributions to Ski’s 24-Hour Karate School, Pittsburgh’s finest seems re-energized. Released early this morning, the search for this tape’s download link shot quickly up to Google’s number one search trend and has garnered the attention of publications like NY Daily News and Entertainment Weekly. As the hombre Nibot put it, Wiz makes stoner rap legit, even for non-smokers. Roll one up and enjoy.

Wiz Khalifa – Kush & Orange Juice

The other offering has been floating around the interwebs for a hot minute now, but after a co-sign from The Teacher , I gave Sugar Tongue Slim’s Demand More 2 another spin. I don’t know if was stuck in my ears my first time through or if I was turned off by his pauseworthy rap alias, but this shit is niiiice (c) Fab. A-Town continues to produces more and more quality young spitters, and now we can add STS to a list that already includes the likes of Pill, Cyhi, and OJ da Juiceman.

I demand more from STS.

STS – Demand More 2
