In the Fall, back-to-school ragers and banging party playlists go hand in hand. So, while we all wait anxiously for the Drake mixtape to drop (and when it does, expect for it do be dope as shit), we're bringing to you the 10 best, brand-spankin' new mixtapes to listen to this Fall, along with some sick up-and-coming artists that should be on your radar.
PJ Simas, "The SLO Life"
Notes: I know, I know: he's another white college rapper (from Cal Poly though...so there's that), but give him a shot. He's got a clean flow that's very laid back. Very Cali.

Big Sean, "Finally Famous v.3 Mixtape"
Notes: Better? Some surrious names on this one that we've featured (like Posner, who everyone hates on, but still) like Chiddy Bang and Clinton Sparks, who I personally find to be fire.

Mac Miller, "K.I.D.S"
Notes: The Brommunity is always up in our shit about how we don't feature this guy, so I checked it out. I like it, the samples are banging and the fast pace makes for a serious party vibe.

XV, "V is for Vizzy: The Best of XV"
Notes: Similar flow to Wale, The Dean's List, and Chiddy Bang (who they collaborate with on this tape). Gaining some momentum, and are definitely someone to watch.
Smoke DZA, "George Kush The Button"
Notes: Very chill beats, a very calm album. This guy loves him some Kush. The producer of "Continental Kush Breakfast," Kenny Beats, is also a rising star to check out.
