A $tarlito compilation 4 u

So, Yo Gotti's Live From The Kitchen being a bit of a stinker other than Single, Harder and Killa really threw a spanner in the argument I've been trying to push that Tennessee now does better Trap-Rap than the current breed of non-Brick Squad ATLiens like 2 Chainz, Rocko, Trouble, Future et al, huh? I took the Gotti album's mediocrity so personal that I've decided to retaliate in the form of a compilation of some lesser-celebrated joints by my favourite Tennessee Rapper All $tar/$tarlito.

'Lito's catalogue is fairly daunting, especially since some of it is only available in exchange for *shock horror* actual money, thus I'm operating under the presumption that the only work of his most people seem to be familiar with are Renaissance Gangster, the Step Brothers 'tape with Don Trip, the 2 # UW mixtapes and the recent For My Foes musical EP, so here's a 16 song collection of the best-of-the-rest, starting from when he still went by the moniker of All $tar on $tarlito's Way II back in 2008 right up to $tarlito's Way III in late 2010 and @ War W/ Myself in early 2011, taking in highlights from his multitude of mixtapes between and even a couple of random Hulkshare loosies including the remix of So Slow with Don Trip & Yo Gotti from last summer.

~ All $tar/$tarlito - Dark $tar compilation ~

1. I Ain't Went Nowhere
2. Extra Get It
3. Life Insurance
4. Oh Em Gee
5. Alphabet Soup
6. Untitled
7. How You Wanna Die
8. IE Cipher (with Yo Gotti)
9. That Shit Ain't Real
10. I Go Ham
11. Until Then
12. I Shake Life (with Yo Gotti)
13. L.N.D Generous
14. Three's Company
15. So Slow remix (with Don Trip & Yo Gotti)
16. Keep Doin' My Thang


All are kosher original songs other than I Ain't Went Nowhere where he jacked a 2010 T.I joint nobody cared about and L.N.D Generous which beckons all the more seductively than Ellen Degeneras because the "lower your voice when you're talkin' to a boss" line is incredibly applicable when indulging in drunken nights out with the bros and the hoes.

Re-upped for SoulStrut forum dudes november 1st 2013.

Any tape with Keep Doing My Thang is required listening, cheers.

Its weird, I didn't like any of the early tapes I tried back then but I was bumping that song untagged regularly for ages. Maybe it was the shite name.

Fixed anon.

Missing "Alright" and "What Was I Thinking?", but the inclusion of the great "Life Insurance" is still getting a thumb's up.

Like the post sez, the mix is for a primer for people who are mainly familiar with Renaissance Gangster and last year's releases like Step Brothers and the 2 #UW 'tapes.

This is great.

Ray Garraty said...

Could you re-up this? (Though I have all of his early tapes.)
And it could be a great project of your to re-up all of your comps since links are all dead.

Re-upped with a fresh link above.

I was thinking about doing a mass re-up post like that. Then I checked how many compilations there are and was like "fuck that!"

If you specifically need any others then just lemme know.

Ray Garraty said...

Thanks! Yes, it is a lot of work, that's why I said project: maybe one re-up a week. You'll put me in a uncomfortable position if I start to ask for a lot of re-ups.

Note D said...

Any way you could re up the compilation again?

Si Mane Price said...

Check back on this post sometime tomorrow and the link'll be live again.

can you re up this?

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Check back later. I'll re-up it when I get home.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Not sure where I can upload this.

Zippyshare is blocked in the U.K now, and that Dbree site doesn't seem to be working at the moment.
