    • Mike Ron

      The best 25 are numbers 1-25 of the top 100. Don’t be so stupid next time.

      • Young Mo Fo

        He has autism, let him be.


    Wale’s More About Nothing gotta be #1!!!! That shit hit on everything with bangers from start to finish. It was so good that it was more like an album, I was shocked. I got More About Nothing at 1, There Is No Competition 2 at #2, Friday Night Lights at #3 and Kush & Orange Juice at 4

DIS NIGGA TALKS ABOUT WEED THE WHOLE FUCKIN MIXTAPE!!! DAT AINT NO DAMN NUMBER ONE!!! DIGGY SIMMONS MIXTAPES WERE BETTER THAN HIZ!!!

  • NYC lights

    it was good to finally see laws get some recognition but that 457 mixtape might have been the best of the year lyrically he was better than everyone here & the production from dj khalil 9th wonder & justice league enuff said

  • T

    Cole’s tape wasn’t that good. He’s good but he’s hella overrated.

    • Kim

      It was THAT GOOD and not over rated.

      • glock9

        yes dumbass it IS overrated

  • Adam Shallah

    is this not just a list of every single mixtape to be released by a fairly popular rapper this year

  • David HussleSoft

  • Kid Wizdom

    Yooooo please sum1 tell me dat dey noticed LIL B wuz on dis list at #27. See dats how you kno xxlmag musta got paid by da artist or record label to be put on dis list er sumthin. Look ima be straight blunt, LIL B is wack as fuck period. Yes I am a hater towards wack artist because they are %100 of the reason that good music will never be in the lime light again. You might hear a few gems and diamonds here and there but as far as the movement. Its DEAD. LIL B is wack period

  • Rockcity

    FNL was a breath of fresh air. . . it shouldve been higher!!! I’m not mad at wiz bein number 1 dat mixtape was tough 2. . .

  • zzzzzzz

  • ludabam24

    No Curren$y? Smokee Robinson was a good ass tape JETS

  • Break lights top 1!

    break lights should have been at least top 5. that mixtape could have easily been an album. just nasty

  • JE

    cant take this list seriously when j cole and wale arent in the top 5.. friday night lights was by far number 1 and thats coming from a wiz fan

  • Kim

    B.o.B’s No Genre was better than everybody’s. That guy is CRAZY. Also liked Big Sean’s, J. Cole’s mixtapes but B.o.B. is just. FUKKING. RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just my opinion.

  • the kid frankie

    how is Jeezy’s Trap or Die 2 not WAAAY HIGHER!?!?!!!
    really? Donnis’ mixtape is better…. like really? wtf was Y’ALL hearing!?!?

  • KiNGPiN4867

    • Haute

      Royce 5’9′s B.E.3 was nasty shoulda been higher in my opinion and nice to see they included Tech’s tape even though it just dropped…agree that banks should be on here somewhere but I’m likein this list and im glad they used so many, ive got a few different people to check out now and judge 4 myself…quit hatin on it, and co-sign to the number 1 and 3

  • NigNig

    XXL can suck my dick for this list. How in the fuck did Wiz and his wackness get the number 1 spot. Clearly J.Cole is the best rapper on this list and his mixtape was better than most albums. Krit before Cole c’mon son. smh.

I got bored through the top 10 , i didnt jadakiss aka best rapper alive he should been 1 or fab or cole. FUCK XXLMAG, just because 50 put you on in 03 you thinking you god or something.

  • MattCast

    OFWGKTADGAF. fuck the other 99.

  • brea

    wiz’s mixtape was okay, it was just really hyped. J. Cole hands down number one. Wale’s more about nothing should’ve been higher. Kush & oj shouldn’t have been no higher than #12, it was the cool greys of mixtapes… OVERHYPED

  • smiley

    wtf r u kiddin me trap or die II has to be in the top 15 at least! smh this list sucks

  • http://qucci11 Devon

    Fan of a Fan should be #1 since it has a grammy nominated single “Dueces . Kush and OJ should of went #2, K.R.I.T Wuz Here #3, There’s No Competition #4, then #5 should be Finally Famous Vol. 3 . #top5

  • Richard Lesco

    No Das Racist? Fucking disappointed, XXL. I don’t know why, I wasn’t expecting much from you anyways.

  • soNC252

    So No one has heard of Big Krit!! No one decided to check out his music huh.. Give me a fuckin break; wiz mixtape was all hype; J.Cole and K.R.I.T. should’ve shared number one!! Both make their own beats and have real lyrics and budden gets a strong 2nd… Who XXL got reviewing this shit?

    • daz-lin

      thank u…. they are the only two doin there own shit

  • John Doe

    HAHA wait….wait…let me take a second to breathe

    Who did this list? and can they please make a statement pointing out the criteria…if it is who has the biggest fan base, most tweets, google searches or most downloads then fair enuff but if its solely on the quality of each mixtape then how is Friday Night Lights not number one?

    it is lyrically superior to kush and oj…plus has better beats and a much wider subject range….jcole could have released this as an album, let alone a mixtape

    someone please let me know what criteria kush and oj did well on…

  • bret

    i dont give a f**k tech shoulda been #1 people really dont appreciate music ne more. with techs speed,clarity,his f**kin vocab is off the wall it shoulda been him and his mixtape jus came out like a little over a week ago

  • 37200

    real talk young jezzy trap or die 2 should be n da top 5 u need to go back an listen sound like a album just as good as rick ross mixtape and hands down young buck back on my buck shit 2 should be top 10 produced by drumma boi every song keep 100 real trap music


    AMAFIA “LORD OF THE STREETS IS AT LEAST #2! “in my own world was cold too. Also, i didnt read the whole list, but was gucci’s “mr. zone 6″ on this list? that shit was the best mixtape this year!

  • whoa bad xxl

    Come Friday night lights should been one 1 fab 2 Fred the godson 3 like so many of these were not hot T.I. and i love T.I. but just not last Rick Ross clearly y’all were just trying to please the stars

  • ctgohard

    yea killing the compt was the best of 2010 no question I cought that dude fred da godson on mtv he can spit better than any other new rapper i herd in a long time

  • daz-lin

    i know alot of u are like who the hell is big krit and y is he above j.cole? but jus listen to his music he is right up there with the best of them he will most likely be in ur top 5 after u listen to krit wuz here

  • Pariah

    Mood Muzik 4 and Friday Night Lights should be number 1 and 2 (not in that order) fuck fabs mixtape, that was a whole bunch of corny punchlines

  • Mia Wes

    ya’ll are fucking with me right?
    Lil B at 27?
    Friday Night Lights
    More About Nothing
    Fan of a Fan
    all SHITTED on that mixtape and you got that cookin motherfucker at 27?
    shit Rick Ross, Joe Budden, and Yelawolf are way better than that dude.
    this is coming from a 17 year old girl (I’m basically his demographic)
    im sooooo done.

  • Matt meyer

    11 years solo, but hes been rapping for even longer than that

  • matt meyer

    wtf i posted that on the wrong mixtape lol


    i was a huge fan of Eminem, 50 Cent, Jay z, Lil Wayne and many more but when i first listened to Tech N9ne(Psycho bitch II), i was like”!@_@! what the hell! what kind of super Rap is that?” then i listened to Sickology 101 album, after that i said”damn! he suppose to be the Hardest Rapper Alive! ” and couldn’t stop listening to his songs! after i listened to KOD!(King of Darkness), i was like “Damn! Damn! Damn! i can’t wait to listen to his new stuffs!” and Now i say it so loud: TECH N9NE is THE BEST! RAPPER! ALIVE! and for me the KING OF RAP..!
    Bad Season is the No.!!! Fuck XXL MAG ppl they don’t know what Real Rap is! they are fucking 9 yr old Faggots!

    • Crandall

      you are exactly right! i have been listening sense KILLER was released but i have every tech n9ne song and feature, he is the hardest rapper out there and REAL, he definetly deserved #1, i wouldnt hate on XXL people cause they helped Tech N9ne, but they definetly should of gave hime #1. Even DJ Whoo Kid said “Bad Season” is in his top10 favorite mixtapes of all time! Tech N9ne Bad Season should be #1.

  • Crandall

    the list is like half right…… khalifa’s mixtape was’nt all that great? just cause he has been getting popular don’t mean he deserves #1. I strongly believe that Tech N9ne Bad Season shouldn’t been #11, it should of got 1st, that mixtape is in my top3 favorite mixtapes of all time.

  • n4styrico

    number 23 for now their next 1 is gonna kill ‘em all! swag.

  • Mia Wes

    Im still mad you would have Lil B so close to the rest of them. and in front of nipsey shieeeet lol

  • John


  • Mr Rich

    Jeezy’s Trap or Die II wasn’t in the top 5?????? I’m Sorry but Jeezy’s mixtape could have been an album and it deserved to be in the top 5. Maybe we should go on and see who had more listens and determine who came in at 1st place this year

  • truthxrealist

    im wondering wheres #welldone ‘ #greenlight3 ‘ #inmyzone ? #southernflamespitta #guddaville ? Jae Millz ? Curren$y? smh
    kush & oj belongs one top #HandsDown

  • Sam

    Why is Wale so low! top 10 at least although in my opinion it’s the mixtape of the year #nodaysoff

  • sunny wiimz

    FABS tape was abeast when it dropped ….big krit shudda went number 2 tho….and albert anatsia was a beast BMf was the record of the summer

  • Damn

    & More About Nothing deserves a lot more than 17!
    & LOS’s shooter mixtape #100.. what’s wrong with you guys.

  • ad

  • itsfunnyhowmostniggaswontreadall100lmao

    this list is pretty good – but wheres James Wade’s Popular Stranger? or Wiz Khalifa’s B.A.R.? My only complaints

    • SBryNole

  • Dead President

  • Dead President

    ^thats 2 the cats saying brake lights is classic & should be #1

  • rickdove

    Kendrick lamar ep shoulda been first. ab soul then cyhi da prince shoulda royal flush should been on there. as well as Casey Veggies album

  • LP

    I’m tryna figure it out how Lil B garbage ass made #27 let alone cracked the top 100, in my opinion Joe Budden, Big Sean, Wale, & J.Cole’s mixtapes belong in the top 5 no questions asked

  • jupe31

    Yo kill yoself if u think wiz didnt have da hottest mixtape of 2010 good 4 u xxl u niggas still sleep while xxl was awake go comp it an ride or sit & smoke kush & orange juice nigga

  • Ace

    Yeah this list is a joke. Ross over J. Cole? thats some bullshit. Wiz Khalifa #1? Hell no. C ole def deserved the #1 spot. Friday Night Lights should go down as a all time mixtape classic

  • mB

    Fan of a Fan should be top 5 hands down,,, theres even a song on it thats nominated for a fukkin grammy.

  • rob

    Where is j-dawg’s behind tint vol. 2?

  • KiD SteezE

    That a boy Mac. Helping rep PA in a real good way. Shouts to J. Cole too ? Mixtape was fire. And Wale was bangin’ this year.

  • mike

    dont care fnl should of been number one

  • TylertheCreator

    Odd future was number one for sure…. NIGGAS NEED TO CHECK DAT SHIT OUT.

  • unclesam

    Holy shit, how did Kendrick Lamar’s shit not end up at #1? That was like easily the best mixtape I’ve ever heard. It was more like an album (well actually it was an album, but was released for free later) than a mixtape. KRIT should’ve been #2, Cole at #3, Trunk Muzik and Finally Famous should easily be in the top 10. Fuck that T.I, Rozay, Loso shit. Wale should be in the top 10-15. Dom Kennedy’s tape should be in the top 10.

  • Markm

    Dead Prez should be higher….

  • Debo

    aint hating on wiz or nuttin but like 5 mixtapes that came in afta his is crushing his mixtape…. Cole budden and Krit suda been higher they shit was way lyrical

  • riley

    money can buy you anything…

  • jake

    i think yelawolf’s mixtape was by far the best followed by big krits’s.

  • Get Right Music

    Props for doing 100! We only do 10 every year and that takes time…

  • BOI!!


  • Jay Cole

    SMH @ Cole being #5. He straight up delivered an album with that mixtape..and its way better than the other 4 (Wiz?? Ross? come on now)

    and to click every single number is the MOST ANNOYING THING on this website nowadays. UGH

  • JE double F

    mac miller’s K.I.D.S. should have been rateed higher. and kush and oj aint no star power.

  • serenate

    WTF? J. cole should have been #1 hands down. His shit sounded lika album. SMH dumb asses. Dats aite keep doin ya thang Cole. Big Krit >Fabolous>Rick Ross< J. fuckin Cole

  • http://xxlmag LouisBoi1017



    I gotta agree that J.Cole joint should’ve been higher. It was dropped late 10 but that means it should’ve been still fresh in ur head.

    Top 3 shouldve been Cole, Fab, Wiz. no paticular order because each were pretty darn good albums.

    is still pump FAB and Cole…i’ll put those two ahead. N would go with fab number one cause his joint produced a single and a dang gone remix and made it to da stores.

  • Matt

    Nipseys gotta be higher up.

  • FrankDuke

    Yo That Mood Music was one of the best albums I herd all year and i herd j.cole and krit and fab but that mood music 4 was lyrically the best period

  • Nobody

    I was about to say if Odd Future wasn’t on the list that XXL needs to get their head out of their ass, they probably still need to anyways.

  • Dub

    Friday Night Lights deserves #1, that shit was better than most albums of 2010

  • one man army

    Where is Los from b-more y he aint on here?

  • Ganja

    Big K.R.I.T deserves to be #1. Wiz is shit.

  • J-man

    what up xxl i was going thru yo mixtap vault and Ive definately come across a guy who I feel is worther of ah shot in the rap game his mixtape is entitled “GangBanging Is Dead”:The Official MixTape I thought Id bring this up cause I seen a guy on here who took nas’s illmatic album for a mixtape concept which seemd pretty dope but I actually seen this guy Halo’s GangBanging Is Dead mixtape about three four months ago on myspace,there’s alot of guys getting a shot who’s not really worth the attention and this dude Glitz is blazeing it sounds like his music is ushering in a new era in cali hip hop so I thought I just give xxl the scoop first check him out at check him out this guy definatley deserves his hour of fame n da game!

    Kush and OJ was dope as hell. Probably my most bumped tape over the last few years
    2. KRIT WUZ HERE – It was actually my ALBUM* of the year
    3. Friday Night Lights – Amazing but not the Warm Ups level
    4. Fab – Dope tape
    5. Mood Muzik or Vizzy Zone – Both dope as fuck
