I'm not fully buying into this 'mixtape' thing that has arisen this year (it's an excuse for an artist to circumnavigate criticism - "Oh, it's not my debut album, it's only my mixtape!") - but I did, like everyone else seemingly, enjoy the A$SAP Rocky one and the first The Weeknd one. And bits of the Terius Nash one.
