If you’re on the hunt for free music, look no further than Datpiff.com. The self-described ‘authority’ in free mixtapes, Datpiff offers a ludicrous amount of underground, unreleased, and sometimes unpolished music for your listening pleasure.
Although quite a few of the tapes are marginal at best, there’s enough quality beats and rhymes on the site to make it worth your while. The Game’s You Know What It is Vol. 4, for example, is classic material – “Hustlers” feat. Nas is straight fire – as is Lupe Fiasco’s Revenge of the Nerds and, given the controversy its received, so is Nas’ The N***** Tape.
Either way, head over to Datpiff and show some love for the medium that launched so many of hip-hop’s greats.
