There was a time when mixtapes were loose collections of songs not good enough to make an album. Those days are over. In 2013, an age where artists recognize that the road to stardom is paved with free music, mixtapes have become full, original bodies of music in their own right.

But all that free music also means discovering something truly worth your time can be harder than finding a needle in a digital haystack. That’s why we've joined forces with

PepsiPulse

. Our “

Mixtapes of the Month

” series will narrow things down to five projects

guaranteed

to ensure some of the game's best work doesn’t pass you by.

The latest selection features projects from

Raz Simone

,

ShaqIsDope

and more.
