After heavily teasing fans over the past few weeks, Key N Krates‘ latest project A Beat Tape For Your Friends is officially here. If you’re a fan of classic hip-hop beats, you’re about to fall in love with this mixtape. Serving as the trio’s first release of the year, A Beat Tape For Your Friends is a step back from the glory of their debut album Cura as the trio refocuses on their hip-hop roots. The perfect soundtrack for lazy summer days and late night adventures, the 11-track mixtape offers a blissful escape that you’ll want to experience with your friends over and over again. Catch Keys N Krates on tour this summer and stream A Beat Tape For Your Friends now.
The project is all instrumental and pays homage to the beat tapes we love like Jay Dilla’s “Donuts” which has helped shape how we approach music in general. This is our take on that idea, made from our perspective. It’s a good-vibe playlist you can put on with your friends to enjoy the summer and get outdoors after a long winter. – Keys N Krates
