Free Mixtapes (Big Boi, Stereogum, Pitchfork)
It’s fourth of July, so you know what that means. Burnt meat on the grill, warm beer and your friends horrible music blaring from the stereo. For the more proactive of our readers, instead of suffering through another weekend of Nicklebackand the Black Eyed Peas, control your destinies and make one of these stellar mixes the soundtrack to your next soiree. Pitchfork is using e-music to push artists coming to their Pitchfork Fest (grab it HERE), Stereogum picks their favorite hipster summer jams (grab it HERE) and Big Boi says “fuck it” and just makes a mix of his own music (grab it HERE). I think we can agree Big Boi has touched upon a core American value that we all should celebrate this weekend, which is that of unwavering, unsolicited self promotion that ultimately ends with you being filthy rich. Go America!
