The Kickdrums have been in the mixtape game for a minute. The duo usually goes back and forth from their artist albums, yet still finds the time to feed their core fans with collaborations featuring some of your favorite artists. Follow The Leaders is their latest production project, which mixes their hip-hop influence with various other genres to create a mesh of sounds wrapped up into one.
The mixtape has guest appearances from Casey Veggies, Machine Gun Kelly, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Freddie Gibbs, Rockie Fresh, DZ Deathrays, Hot As Sun and is entirely produced by Alex Fitts and Matt Pentilla.
One track that was omitted from the project was the stellar A$AP Rocky and Lana Del Rey collaboration (the Complex February/March 2012 anthem), which was taken off at the last minute due to Rocky's label wanting to keep it for his debut album. That's how it goes sometimes.
