UPDATE: link to Volume 4 is in the comment section.
New Jersey’s Illmind has been blessing both the underground and the mainstream with his beats for years now. He’s been putting together his work from both sides of the hip hop game into the Blaps, Rhymes & Life mixtapes, the 4th of which is going to be released Wednesday. We wish we could be in New York City to celebrate the release, but since we can’t we’ll just share some of his previous work with you. Hit the jump for downloads.
One of the nice things about being a producer is that you can work with a lot of different artists with different sounds and styles. I definitely think that Illmind has his own recognizable style, but the diversity of artists he showcases on these mixtapes is impressive. These three mixtapes include tracks with LL Cool J, Brooklyn Academy, Skyzoo, 50 Cent, Diamond D, Jean Grae, Kids Incorporated, Common, Wale, Masta Ace, and a lot, lot more.
Cop the first three mixtapes below. We’ll try to make the 4th one available once it comes out. I was having trouble with downloading vol. 3, and I’ll try and see what I can do about that but hopefully it works for the rest of you for now.
