#DeepCuts: The Best New Mixtape Tracks

YG f/ Young Jeezy and Wiz Khalifa "Playin"

Mixtape: Just Re'd Up 2
Producer: Cardo

Cardo remains one of hip-hop's most consistent tier-two producers, a guy who isn't known but nonetheless produces incredible songs on an absurdly consistent basis. On YG's latest tape, Just Re'd Up 2, his track stands out thanks to his surroundings; it's the only traditionally-Los Angeles sounding cut on the record, as the rest of the tape finds producer DJ Mustard refining the 'ratchet' club aesthetic he and a few other beatmakers have developed over the past couple of years. Young Jeezy also sounds great over west coast production, and is a welcome evolution for his sound.
