Mr. SOS - Cassette Verite

QN5's ATL representative Mr. SOS wants you to know what a real mixtape sounds like. He put together 18 tracks of underground goodness from the Boom Bap of "Night Fades" to the syncopated rhythm of "My Machine". He also enlisted QN5 roster mates Kokayi, Pack FM, Substantial and, of course, Tonedeff. They all turned out fantastic verses and Mr. SOS himself has enough juice to handle 14 of the 18 tracks on his own. That's swagnificent!

Cassette Verite (meaning realism) is very different from 2009's "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" and that's a good thing. It's not an album. It's a mixtape. Many rappers today have confused the two and you'll find artists releasing mixtape material that should have been reserved for an album and vice versa. *ahemfabolouscoughahem* This is a very solid project to tide SOS fans over until his next full length album.

The music is not free to download but you can you stream the entire project for free right here.
