A lot of great stuff has been released this year, and over the next week, we’ll be ranking everything. First up are the top 10 mixtapes of 2012. Mixtapes have been instrumental in helping the marketing and promotional endeavors of record labels, and are utilized by those without labels to gain exposure on the bigger scene. Almost always free, they’re an awesome gift for fans regardless of their purpose.

The Save Money army/crew/militia/better yet a navy stopped in Champaign last Thursday, December 6, 2012, bringing along Mickey Factz, Kid Daytona, The Boy Illinois, and Frank Leone among others with them. Check out some of our favorite pictures from the #savechampaign event after the jump.
Light is finally here. Featuring collaborations with some of the freshest and best faces in Chicago hip hop… Kembe X, Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, to name a few… Kami de Chukwu gets in on the action with one of the most anticipated mixtapes of the summer. He dropped “Home” late last night, and it’s been on repeat all day. The bar was set super high with that one, we’ll see what the rest of the mixtape has to offer.
The Savemoney clan has been killing the scene lately, and through several verse releases this summer, Kami began establishing himself as one of the groups best.
