2nd Time Around, a newly-released mixtape cut from underground star and DJBooth favorite Wale, finds the Seinfeld-loving emcee teaming up with Brother Ali, one of the most recognizable faces on the Murderapolis, MN hip hop scene.  On this lyrically-driven record, DJ Benzi‘s low-key production serves as a backdrop over which the two collaborators showcase their stark differences in style: while Wale flexes his muscles with a recursive flow, weaving a lyrical spiderweb impossible to unravel at first listen, Brother Ali spits an all-out assault on the mainstream rap establishment, admonishing hip-hop artists for glamorizing conspicuous consumption during tough economic times (in addition to a litany of other crimes).  If you like what you’re hearing, you’re in luck; 10.Deep & DJ Benzi: The New Deal Mixtape drops today, and is available for free download at 10deep.com.
