summertime-7

Calendars may have indicated that summer began on June 20, but summertime isn’t really summertime without Summertime. Like clockwork, DJ Jazzy Jeff and MICK’s annual Summertime mixtape—this year, in its seventh edition—has arrived.

The duo’s collaborative project is as much of a tradition as the season’s pool parties, barbecues, and road trips, and yes, the 46-track mix is the perfect accompaniment to your Fourth of July’s festivities. This year’s instalment features Jay Z, De La Soul, Eric Clapton, TLC, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, and many more.

As for post-summer plans, Will Smith revealed that he and DJ Jazzy Jeff may be heading on tour next year to perform their classics, as well as some previously unheard tracks.

Listen to and download the mixtape in full below, and revisit mixes one through five over at their site. Welcome to summer.
