Maryland’s Steph Castro just dropped his Live And Let Die mixtape, a project that has been eagerly awaited here at The Come Up Show. While the subject matter is nothing really new (see “Sex, Money & Murder”), Steph’s laid-back flow is just so easy to listen to, and makes up for any shortcomings in innovation. The smooth production throughout this mixtape complements Steph’s flow nicely, and keeps the entire project flowing from start to finish. Lots of strings, horns, and even flute-driven production, fitting the James Bond feel. This is the kind of summer mixtape you want to play while driving with the windows rolled down. Early favourites include “Extension 88s”, “Over & Over” ft. Ike Da Kid, “Check Ins & Check Outs”, “Cream Team”, “Miami Nights”, and “Sunsets” (my personal favourite track from the mixtape).
