Kil has put together a new mix tape in honor of the green eyed bandit known as Erick Sermon, and he’s calling this The Sermon Mixtape. Plain and simple, right? Maybe, but Sermon’s music is anything but simple and now you can hear his ways in this new musical puzzle, featuring a wide range of artists he has collaborated with over the years.
Since January, I’ve been giving you small slices as hints of what was to come on BURNTmd’s album, The Green Invasion. Six months later, that album is now a reality. If you head to a store or an online merchant that stocks quality hip-hop, you’ll see the cover above. If you download the mixtape version, you’ll see the cover below.
The mixtape has 27 tracks, while the retail/stock version has 25, and there are a few differences between the two. If you love your albums in a mixtape fashion, head to the DatPiff.com link below and DL it for free. Want to hear things as a properly formatted album? Opt for the retail version, which you may purchase below via Amazon.

It would take a rapper like BURNTmd to challenge himself to get the talents of Keith Murray and have him contribute to a new project. It happened. This one is called “Building Blocks”, produced by Reef Ali, and now you can hear the magic, as prepared for the street album called f The Green Invasion.
Jaecyn Bayne is a rapper that sounds like that around the way cat that you can rely on for quality rhymes and flows, and he shows what he’s about on his album Audio Therapy. The therapy involved includes a number of rock and blues-rock instrumentals that are nice to hear in this context, as Bayne is someone who wants to go on a journey and take listeners along with him, just as the music does. Then you get into a song like “Heat Stroke” that sounds like they found the ghost of the Kashmere Stage Band, added Cut Chemist‘s beat selection into the mix, and went crazy. Then things get elevated when Keith Murray starts rhyming in “Heat Stroke” and you want to raise your hand and go “SHIT YEAH!”
It’s nice to hear an MC who is able to be musically diverse without fear, because too many want to be locked in a comfort zone and never get out of it. Jaecyn Bayne is a journeyman, welcome him into your village.
