Couldn't pick a better Monday for Mixtape Mondays than Memorial day. Hopefully by now you have shaken off the long-weekend hangover and are just packing your picnic basket for another round of Yogi & BooBoo in a park, beach or backyard BBQ near you. Okayplayer is here to help, with a couple new mixes of picnic jams to create the right mood for your chilling and/or grilling. PLUS as a Memorial Mixtape Monday bonus we are making the Official Roots Picnic Mix from Philly's finest DJ Low Budget available as a free download. Get that over here and follow me after the jump for two unique and fresh Erykah Badu mixtapes courtesy of Bama Love Soul and an excursion into flossing, tossing and L.A. Sunshine with Str8 West Coastin from the homies DJ Eleven, Dopeshoes & Still Life. Load the into the listening device of your choice and then hit the blanket.

 DJ Eleven, Dopeshoes & Still Life - Str8 West Coastin':

In support of their Brooklyn-to-the-bay-themed event series (the mixtape cover is the flyer, see above for details) West Coast transplants DJ Eleven, Still Life & Dopeshoes have assembled this Bloomberg Baller Block blend of Cali flavor from 2pac to Ahmad. That's actually 3 mixes for the price of one cause each DJ does their own thing in turn. Stream or download below and get the tracklisting(s) via 11-inch Records soundcloud page.
