Things are getting certifiably spooky in Mixtape Monday this morning. Yes, we’re as susceptible to Halloween as the next news outlet, and so we’re very proud to bring you all the world premiere of Ally Al‘s Beats, Tricks & Treats Halloween mixtape, a set that’s as frightening as it is funky and as macabre as it is magnificent. Past the ghoul get-down there are brand hip-hop new tones from House Shoes, a new love mix from Cuurlzzz, a dose of classic 90s boom-bap, some 80s pillow talk and more. So turn up the volume and light the jack-o-lanterns. Your week in mixtapes starts now.
