I haven't done a mixtape post in a very, very long time. I go through phases when it comes to music depending on where I am in life at that moment. Going through a breakup? I would probably be listening to Adele or Coldplay. During the winter? I listen to a lot of Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver. Anyway, lately I've really been into hip-hop, especially local, home-grown Minnesotan talent. It makes me feel so proud to say I'm a Minnesota when I listen to how talented some of these rappers are. It also helps that you can relate to the songs and locations they rap about. I remember one summer I was obsessed with Atmosphere's "Number One" because he said in line: "she lived out in Richfield, right off of Portland" and I was obsessed because HEY! I know where both of those are! I'm weird, okay?
So this mixtape is a little compilation of some songs that have been playing on my iPod lately. There may be a lot of the same artists, like Atmosphere, but that's because he has a lot of songs and I enjoy pretty much every single one of them.
