R&B Mixtape Madness

By December 6, 2010

Follow me on:

Trey Songz mixtapeIt's the holiday season, and a number of R&B singers have gotten into the spirit by releasing free mixtapes online. That's right -- free. Raheem DeVaughn, Trey Songz and newcomer Josh Xantus have all dropped mixtapes online over the past week or so, and each can be downloaded at no charge. Raheem's release, Jackin 4 Beats, features him remaking songs by Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Miguel and others. Trey's 16-track #LemmeHolDatBeat mixtape features eight new songs, plus eight remakes of current hits. And Josh's Josh X-Mas is an all-new collection of ballads. For links to where you can download each legally and at no cost, check below.

AAARRRGH! How can you tell if a song is even good, if all you hear are air horns, scratching turntables, shouting DJs, & artists hyping themselves over every tune? I should know better with Trey & Raheem.

Thank you Josh – the only one that kept to the music.

I love Devaughn’s mixtape. i haven’t been able to stop playing it. I especially love his take on Single and Night Today.

Josh X’s was pretty good. And whoever the guest singer is on his last track was pretty good too. Looking forward to hearing more from him going forward.

Raheem’s is solid. I really liked his take on “Love The Way You Lie.” I always love it when R&B artists sing over the beat of a hip-hop song and do an R&B version of it. If anybody else knows of any songs like that from other artists, let me know!

Couldn’t stand Trey’s. Not even R&B, just rap. That’s what’s so frustrating about Trey. On some of his albums, he’ll have a couple songs that really shows his ballad chops like he’s ready to take the next step as a more mature R&B artist. Then he reverts to stuff like that!

Thanks for posting these, Mark!
