Napoleon Da Legend | Steal This Mixtape Too
Napoleon Da Legend, Brooklyn by way of the DMV rapper, urges us to “Steal This Mixtape Too”. “STM2” is comprised of 20 concept (Full version on Audiomack) tracks “stolen” from Madlib, Diplo, Rick Ruben, J Dilla (RIP), Dirty Art Club, Onra, The Alchemist, Jay Electronica, MF Doom, Illmind, X Clan, Maker and DJ Muggs. This project also features performances from Narubi Selah, Mad Squablz, Skeezo and ProducHer Beats. The first single / video is titled “Black Privilege” produced by IllMind directed by Rae Maxwell featuring Mad Squablz, which challenges common stereotypes associated with “White Privilege”. This lyrically dense, politically-charged and deeply personal project opens yet another chapter into Napoleon’s versatile skill-set and revolutionary mind-state.
