#DeepCuts: The Best New Mixtape Tracks

Master P f/ Alley Boy & Fat Trel "Brick to a Million"

Mixtape: Al Capone
Producer: Young Bugatti

Master P's new tape is better than it has any right to be. Picking a highlight is tough. P's chorus makes the title track a worthy contender, and "Louie Sheets," which dropped a few months back, remains perhaps the tape's strongest individual song, thanks in part to underrated production crew 1500. But "Brick to a Million" is the tape's best #DeepCut.

Young Bugatti (who joins 1500 and Deezle as the record's beatmaking tag-team) laced P with a beat that could have come from former Beats by the Pound producer KLC's hard drive. The sparse piano bounce has distinctively New Orleans flavor. Rappers Alley Boy and Fat Trel also fit well into P's world, which isn't all that different from the way it was 15 years ago, to great benefit.
