the Very Best mixtape

Hmmm…a little trendier than Meatskull usually allows (ie: anything to do with M.I. fucking A) but this looks like a great set. Anything with Ruby Suns onboard gets my vote.

“Officially scheduled to be released on November 1, here’s the debut (free) mixtape from Esau Mwamwaya + Radioclit, aka the Very Best, complete with absolutely fitting The Lion King-esque artwork. We’ve already heard a number of these tracks, but as a whole, this mixtape is one of the most sincere and uplifting things I’ve heard in a long time. One track we haven’t heard yet is “Dinosaur on the Ark,” featuring vocals from Ben Brewer, aka M.I.A.’s baby daddy. Highly recommended, obviously.”
