Another day, another mixtape. I first heard Detroit’s own NameTag on the Fat Ray & Black Milk joint The Lookout (via Sit Down Stand Up). All around dope song with NameTag holding it down lyrically and Black Milk coming with a crazy beat, but I never gave NameTag a second thought until I saw he had a new mixtape out. I’m pretty late with this one, as it was up on his MySpace more than a month ago, but I still had to post it. NameTag drops some great punchlines (“I man up with a flow strong as Samson before the haircut”) and has a consistent flow. The production is Black Milk-inspired and split between Magnif, Black Bethoven, and of course Black Milk himself; mostly dope beats and of course Black Milk stands out.
