Andy Mineo and Wordsplayed Share ‘Magic & Bird’ Mixtape Release Date, New Song “Dunk Contest”
Andy Mineo and Wordsplayed are joining forces to take on the summer music scene, and the two are just about ready to release their Magic & Bird mixtape. They just announced their upcoming project together, and even revealed the official release date for the collaboration mixtape.
The new project, which is already available for pre-order as of today (July 3), is slated to be available for streaming and purchase on Aug. 4. The new tape is reflective of the the "Know That's Right" rapper and Wordsplayed's love for the 1990s, as the title alone taps into the nostalgia of basketball culture in the popular decade, naming themselves after baller legends, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.
On top of announcing the new joint project dropping next month, the two also released a new song for fans off of the mixtape called "Dunk Contest." The upbeat track was produced by BEAM, and contains tons of sports references that will get basketball fans excited.
If you pre-order Magic & Bird right now, you'll be able to receive "Dunk Contest" for download instantly, as well as their previously released "Kidz" record. Mineo and Wordsplayed dropped the video for "Kidz" a few weeks back.
