It's been a minute, but it's coming... Digital Dynasty 18 is on its way, and expected in time for Christmas as a gift from BallerStatus.com and Tha Advocate.
For the upcoming installment of our free, digital mixtape series, Shady Records' Cali-bred signee Cashis has signed on to play host, helping us introduce hot newcomers ... and usual suspects' music.
After a short break, we're back.
"After taking a brief break after dropping Digital Dynasty 17 with the legendary Jaz-O, I wanted to drop my tape (The Breaking Point)," explained the series' creator, Tha Advocate. "Now as the year is coming to a close, we are taking it back to the west coast. It's big when you combine BallerStatus, Tha Advocate and Shady Records for Volume 18!
"We are gonna close this year out with bang. I want only the dopest, best artists to submit for this sh**," he continued.
Cashis echoed Advo's comments, making sure everyone's preparing for another drop collection.
"This is the part where I tell you the chain of command has been filled ya dig? It's Cashis, Tha Advocate and Ballerstatus.com in this bitch! It's Digital Dynasty baby. We got a slew of some of the best artists on here signed or unsigned [on this mixtape]," said Cashis.
Since its inception, the DD series has garnered over 1.2 million downloads. Past hosts include N.O.R.E., Xzibit, Chamillionaire, Alchemist, DJ Whoo Kid, and Ras Kass, among others. And, if you're not familiar with the series yet, it's time to get with it. It's dedicated to putting fans up on new talent, who may not otherwise get the exposure they should receive. So, we put a little light on them to check their skills.
As always, slots on the upcoming volume are open to talent on the come-up, who need a chance to shine, or established artists wanting to drop some new mixtape heat. For info, holler at Tha Advocate: firstname.lastname@example.org.
