I am going to start featuring one album from the previous week every Monday because there is so much good music that I believe is going unheard. And this album from French producer, Astro Vandalist, is something that you guys need to be made aware of. It’s 17 tracks of unadulterated and potent hip hop. The beats really hit hard and you can see by this lineup of emcees that there are some heavy hitters on here.
Check out and cop the whole thing as it is worth every penny, but here are my favorite tracks if you want a sampling!
The gems are raining today! F.T. and Musicman lace up a banger that induces craziness. I am a big fan of the sample Musicman uses on this track. It really makes this track go. But it goes without saying that F.T., Bekay, and Nutso all lend a heavy dose of lyricism to the cut making the listener feel just a little on edge.
I just reviewed El Gant’s Beast Academy last week. It’s an album that has some incredible bars, and this joint is no exception. This time he brings in the Infinity Gauntlet camp for a little game of baseball. Except the only thing these listeners are going to catch are some hot lines. I am really hoping for an Infinity Gauntlet album soon because whenever these guys get on the mic, wonderful madness ensues.
New music from Shabaam Sahdeeq accompanied by FT and Skyzoo. When it comes to Sahdeeq’s music, it’s always heat rocks. No different here. DJ Skizz on the beat.
I had truly forgotten how dope this song is and was reminded quite quickly. The production from KNO is certain to get you open and the emcees know how to flip on a banger. This cut is off of the collaborative album from MarQ Spekt and Kno, MacheteVision.
Ruste Juxx is a busy man. Busy murking rhythms. This tough track comes off of his and Kyo Itachi’s collaborative effort, Hardbodie Hip Hop.

It gets to a point where I could share every song off this mixtape as a single, but why not offer you guys the full picture of what it’s all about? And at this point I am just going to say it: This mixtape is top notch. If you want fifteen tracks that knock speakers with no filler of fru-fru material, St. Fatrick’s Day is the joint you are going to want to own.
