I should’ve put this mixtape in my wrap up at the beginning of the month, but it slipped my mind. But, SL Jones’ Paraphernalia is one of the best tapes I’ve heard this year. DJ Burn One has been a part of a number of projects in the past year and he produced the whole mixtape for SL Jones. If I had to name one producer who carries the “country rap tunes” torch that Pimp C always talked about it would be Burn One.
This track from Paraphernalia, “M.E.M.P.H.I.S.,” features Freddie Gibbs and a vocal sample of MJG from “The Next Episode” by Ball & MJG.
