Mixtape Review: Live From District 3 – Beanstock

beanstock-livefrom-district

I’ve never heard of the music collective BEANSTOCK before  – I feel so ashamed admitting this right now – but I henceforth, I shall be keeping a very close eye these Boston spitters and I’m going to tell you why…

Not only does the album cover features one of my favourite actress Betty White, their 12-track mixtape, ‘Live From District 3’  (released last month) hooks you straight in with seriously infectious basslines within the first two or so tracks.

Further along the collection, there’s a few isolated productions that doesn’t hold the same buzz created in the first half of the mixtape – but with a few listens, they could become potential favourites.

All-in-all, ‘Live From District 3’, is worthy of a place in any dedicated hip-hopper’s collection and has the ingredients to carry on the hype, created from their previous mixtape, ‘More Things To Do.’ Give a trial; check it out!
