It’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through 2011. Even harder for some to believe that there have been so many good releases in music already. That being said I’ve cooked up my Top 25 releases of the year so far.

Allow me to start by saying this is by far the best mixtape of the year and possibly the best mixtape of the last few years. The Dean’s List is made up of three guys out of Boston and New York City.

I can’t believe they don’t charge for this because you will feel guilty not paying for it. This new mixtape is a huge step up from their previous work such as Undeclared and Accepted. Not saying those are bad, because they are extremely good, but that this new mixtape is just on a complete separate level. This will definitely cause them to blow up, and in a huge way.
