With rappers’ labels thriving in 2012 and Rick Ross’ MMG and Kanye’s GOOD Music especially taking it to the next level, other big name’s cliques, T.I.’s Grand Hustle being one of them, were left with a lot of catching up to do.
With that being said, Chip
munk was certainly one of the riskier, more surprising acquisitions by a US rapper of 2012 but the wait is almost over to get a first glimpse at whether the risk has paid off, with the North London rapper’s first full length project under T.I.’s Grand Hustle, his London Boy mixtape, dropping on Christmas day and here we have the full tracklisting.
The tape will be made up of 20 tracks (18 originals, 2 remixes) with appearances from the rest of the Hustle Gang family (T.I., Iggy Azalea, Trae Tha Truth & B.o.B) as well as a healthy mix of US (Meek Mill, Young Jeezy, Jeremih) and UK (Blade Brown, Wretch 32, Skepta etc) hip-hop heavyweights but what I’m most looking forward to hearing, and what should be the most interesting, are the collaborations with female singers Sevyn (previously of girl group “Richgirl”, now signed to Chris Brown’s label and featured heavily on his latest album and mixtapes) and Delilah, who is incapable of anything but brilliance and her appearance on Wretch 32′s album should be the best indicator of what to expect.
Check out the tape’s back cover and tracklist below and let me know your thoughts!
