Does anything scream "love" quite like a Valentine's mixtape? I'd say no, but then again I've never been a candy-and-flowers sorta dude. (In case you were looking to buy me something, I'm more of a whiskey-and-weed kinda dude.) Also, I'm the Tom Cullen of romance (M-O-O-N, that spells love!), so taking love advice from me might be a bad idea. But music, that's a thing I know, and I've gotta say, these new tapes that dropped today are something special. Chance's tape, Playlist for Edie, features the forward-thinking, indie-leaning hip-hop you'd expect, with great guest appearances from Rio, OpenMic, Natalie Prass and Boss of Nova. You can downloaded it from the fancy widget thing above.
But wait, there's more!
Wally Clark, on the other hand, goes in the opposite direction, dipping into doo-wop and classic soul to create the new Lover's Lane mixtape. Clark is trying to "capture the innocence of young love and to give couples a fun yet sincere soundtrack for their Valentine's Day." So basically, it's "Sex Style" meets "Book of Love." You better have your dick towel ready, 'cuz you're gonna need it.
