Download Pitchfork’s ‘Selector Mixtape Vol. 1′

0f339c01 400x400 Download Pitchforks Selector Mixtape Vol. 1 has a fairly long-running (since 2010) series called “Selector” where they give a rapper the choice of two beats to freestyle over, and let them do their thang. Not only have they had a high caliber collection of rappers (Clipse, Curren$y, Danny Brown and many more) but they tend to spit over an interesting choice of beats from other genres, ranging from Joker to Nicolas Jaar. Grab the mixtape HERE on the Pitchfork website, and check the track-listing and hear my personal favorite below.
