10 Track Tapes Pares Rap Mixtapes Down to the Bare Essentials

March 28, 2014 | Andy Cush

Migos’ No Label II is a good mixtape, but it’s also 25 tracks long. Commenting on the tape at Pitchfork, Carrie Battan wrote, reasonably, that she would “enjoy this mixtape quite a bit if it were six to eight tracks shorter.”

Well, here’s 10 Track Tapes, a new project from Meaghan Garvey aimed at “streamlining new and new-ish rap tapes to a healthy, manageable 10 tracks so you don’t have to waste time or iTunes space.” She’s already tackled the Migos, as well as Doughboyz Cashout’s We Run The City and the Migos/Thugga/PeeWee Longway affair Lobby Runners.

Previously, ANIMAL looked at Garvey’s Illuminati-inspired portraits of Kanye West, Drake, Rihanna, and others, which are fucking great.
