Steal This Mixtape is the first official mixtape release by Me2 aka Josh Young, one half of Flosstradamus.I slept on this little bundle of joy for a couple days after its release. I saw A-Trak, Fool’s Gold, and Gladiator among other Fool’s Gold labelees repost it on Soundcloud. Not really sure why I let it fester so long, but finally yesterday I gave it a listen and man did I ever fuck up.
There are 33 tracks packed into 51 minutes. There are so many samples from so many different artists that I gave up counting a few minutes in. You can hear the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Gucci Mane, Nine Inch Nails, Daft Punk, System of a Down, MIKE JONES and Slim Thug! And that’s just a small sample. Dude, there’s even a Stevie Nicks appearance. Who knew a trap mixtape would scratch my Fleetwood Mac itch. Bravo, sir.
Note: I also appreciate the homage to the classic Clipse x Pharrell track Mr. Me Too.
