Mixtape: L.A. Leakers – 2015 Draft Picks


The L.A. Leakers drop their next round of draft picks for the new year! Every year, the premier West Coast outlet for new music releases a project packed with their favorite up-and-coming talents. These artists have been gaining quite a buzz for themselves recently in the underground blogosphere, and now we have the L.A. Leakers‘ official 2015 starters.

Hosted by Power 106 L.A.’s Justin Credible, DJ SourMilk and Fuzz Fantab, the mixtape has features from indie and industry heavyweights like Chinx Drugz, Troy Ave, Chase N. Cashe, Young Lito, Stalley, Kevin McCall, and Rayven Justice.

Production credits for the 21-track mixtape include Boi-1da, whose “Check At” single with Two-9 was trending in Atlanta today, among many others. We also have some favorites that made this year’s draft, like Pia Mia, Los, and Bas (who was super cool when I met him at last year’s Made In America fest!).

Mixtape: Ty Dolla $ign – $ign Language


Ty Dolla $ign has had a banner year, providing hooks for just about all of your favorite artists, while also seeing solo success with hits like “Paranoid” and “Or Nah.” As the Cali crooner gears up for the release of his debut album, Free TC, via Atlantic Records/Taylor Gang, he drops a preview of what’s to come in the form of a new mixtape, $ign Language.

The 11-track project (some songs are 2-for-1 so there’s actually a handful more than 11) includes features from Fabolous (on the previously-released “Type Of Shit I Hate”) and Rick Ross and Dom Kennedy (on the recently-released “Lord Knows,”) as well as Juicy J, Rich Homie Quan, Casey Veggies, French Montana, Yo Gotti, T.I. and more. It closes with a feature from his younger brother, Big TC, who’s currently incarcerated on a life sentence and the inspiration behind Ty‘s debut album name.
