I can think of no better way to start our work week/Monday morning than with a huge gift in the form of something free, something amazing and something musically diversely perfect. Of course it comes from some of our fave Chicagoans, The Hood Internet.
It's been just over a year since the last installment of their mixtapes dropped, they recently posted up their 300th "Hood track", and in order to celebrate, their new mixtape is all yours, mine and ours...for free!
The new mixtape has 30+ recent Hood Internet favorites compacted into just a lil bit over an hour of rad raging times. Cover art comes from the talented artist Karen Tinsel, and you know we've got a super slick track list for you to follow along.
