Top 5 Spots for Free Hip-Hop Downloads
April 14, 2010


With the constant flood of free music out there these days, it seems like it's getting increasingly difficult for fans like you and I to find the best stuff in a sea of  shit music floating around the internet.   So I decided to put to gether a list of my Top 5 favorite spots for free hip-hop albums on out there.  Unbiased?  Probably not, but if you check out these sites, you're apt to find a TON of good stuff guilt, lawsuit and RIAA-fine free.  Hope you enjoy it!

5. DatPiff.com
Why? They are known to be one of the biggest hip-hop mixtape collections on the web, but that's not necessarily a good thing.  Sure they have a massive, constantly updated collection that you can preview and download, but you have to surf through an ocean of half-assed, plinking, bullshit wannabe rappers and annoying advertisements before you hit a gem or two.  Great spot, but to find the hottest stuff, don't expect it to rise to the top on it's own, it's gonna take some work.

4. HipHopDX Mixtapes
Why? C'mon, it's HipHopDX.  Easy to browse and some premium picks, no B.S. and they did us the favor of rating the albums too.  My favorite part about this site is the navigation.  Easy to browse, easy to read tracklisting and cover art.  Definitely one of my favorites among the mainstream hip-hop sites.

3. BandCamp.com
Why?  A very welcome newcomer to the free music circuit, I think BandCamp is one of the hottest spots to pickup free music, not only because you can download most albums in high-quality 320kbps audio, but you can also listen to full albums before you download them.  Saving you an assload of time, especially for those of you with blogs.  You can easily embed full albums for playback into your Facebook, MySpace or website complete with download links.

2. 2DopeBoyz.com
Why? Not only do we appreciate their support of what we do here at HoodHype, 2DopeBoyz offers some of the hottest exclusive free albums on the web.  Their site is a staple in my daily hip-hop diet.  I love that damn site and I'm always there to see whats hot on their plate of delicious hip-hop.  They drop everything from exclusive mixes (Shouts to Meka and Shake) to full on free albums, which I religiously download.  Love that site.

1. HoodHype.com
Why?  Gotta rep the home team son!  In all seriousness, I think that although we don't have the most MASSIVE selection of free street albums and mixtapes, I can honestly say we boast an entire collection of music that we listen to, appreciate and support, not just stuff we post to fill the internet.  We never post an album we aren't feeling, and we never post an album that we haven't listened to from front to back then back again whether it's myself, Major, Phro or D posting it up for you to check out.
