Purpose’s New Mixtape is “Better Than Your Album”
Filed Under: by Nathan S. on Aug 13, 2010
Hailing from the crime infested streets of Lynn, Massachusetts, a.k.a., the "City of Sin", Purpose would take the same dark environment that consumed those around him and use it as fuel to feed his real passion: hip-hop culture. Having already established his Tragic Allies crew and earned widespread respect for his gritty production work, Purpose is now ready to prove that his mic skills are just as sharp as his beatmaking on his new mixtape, "Better Than Your Album", a relentlessly quality project made from pure hip-hop concentrate.
Along with DJBooth's partner site "Better Than Your Album" is presented in conjunction with One3 Music and Diamond Music Group. East coast underground giant Statik Selektah handles hosting duties with DJ Slipwax of the Deck Demon providing cuts. Guest verses come from Estee Nack and Code Nine (of Tragic Allies), Singapore Kane and Ghetto Lion, and production comes from Purpose himself in addition to Archimedes, Crucial the Giollotine, KOS, White Lotus and many more.
What's that? You spent thousands and thousands of dollars on your album? That sucks for you, Purpose's mixtape is better.
