Free St. Louis Hip-Hop Mixes to Download

For those cojones-filled (sarcasm alert!) anonymous commenters on the other thread saying we don't cover enough hip-hop, this is for you.

Tech Supreme posted a free mix called Hip Hop Ain't Dead in St. Louis. Hosted by Tef Poe, the hour-long-plus mix features a veritable who's-who of the underground, including Bee, Family Affair, the aforementioned Tef Poe, Midwest Avengers, Gangsta Gritz, 4 $ale But Not 4 $ale and Vandalyzm. Download in two parts here and here.

Speaking of Vandalyzm, the highly-touted hip-hopper also posted a mix of stuff meant to drum up excitement for his upcoming album, Megatron Majorz; to download here. Producers include 9th Wonder (Erykah Badu, Jay-Z, Destiny's Child), Swiff D (Juelz Santana, Talib Kweli), Khrysis (Little Brother), Black Spade (Om Records) and more. Megatron is out December 18.
