The 10 Best Mixtapes Of May


Are we already almost halfway through 2013? The past five months—and especially May—had some great mixtapes. But, let’s not forget about some albums that got us excited for the summer.

The biggest album was French Montana’s Bad Boy debut Excuse My French, while the legendary Havoc put out his solo project, 13. New York is alive and well as Talib Kweli also dropped his fifth studio album Prisoner of Conscious. At the same time, hip-hop was thriving with a plethora of new mixtapes to digest.

While Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller keep us on the edge of our seats for June 18, Travi$ Scott finally released his Owl Pharaoh mixtape. The 2013 XXL Freshmen made sure the project was everything we’d come to expect from him. In other areas of the mixtape arena, Hustle Gang proved they could shake things up with a compilation of their own. We also saw a return to form from Big Baby Gandhi, as well as another solid output from Logic a.k.a. Young Sinatra.

Check out our breakdown of May’s best mixtapes and keep your ear to the streets in June.
