This is a review of one of the best street mixtapes of the summer, Da Commission.

Da Comission mixtape

DJ Gates & Nature Boy team up again to drop another mixtape gem, Da Commission, their third official collaboration based on the rumored hip hop supergroup called The Commission, which consisted of the Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Lil' Cease, P. Diddy, and Charli Baltimore. The mixtape features Mafioso rap themes and gritty lyrics about the "hustler" lifestyle, material obsessions, sex, and gunplay.

Released on August 19, 2015, Da Comission mixtape really captures the materialistic and hustling mentality, the excitement, and quintessence of the 1990s, the greatest decade in hip-hop. The mixtape starts off with the street anthem “Players’ Anthem (DJ Clark Kent remix)” that most hip-hop fans probably never heard particularly this generation, and then scratched into Jay-Z’s classic club banger "Can't Knock The Hustle (Fool's Paradise remix)” that never gets old. The Notorious B.I.G. and The LOX freestyle from Funkmaster Flex's The Mix Tape, Vol. II take listeners back to the late 1990s when Bad Boy Entertainment controlled the New York hip-hop scene. Lil’ Cease and Charli Baltimore showed they can contribute with their skills with joints like “4 My Niggaz,” “Right Here Is Where It Is” and “Dear Diary”.

Classic records such as "Gettin' Money (The Get Money Remix)", "Money, Power & Respect," “Young Gs,” and the underground favorite “Real Niggas Do Real Things” part 1 and 2 makes rap fans miss ‘90s rap even more. "What's Beef," "Victory," and "Whatchu Want (The Commission)" based on the group are also on this epic mixtape.

Da Commission concludes with "Brooklyn's Finest," a competitive, friendly battle between Jay-Z and The Notorious B.I.G. in which Jay-Z tried proving that he is of Notorious B.I.G.'s caliber, while the Notorious B.I.G. tried brushing his rhymes off as insignificant. The song was just a reminder how strong they were together. We can only imagine the songs they would have collaborated on if the Notorious B.I.G. was still here.

Da Commission is definitely necessary for all mixtape fans who love real hip-hop music and are huge fans of Jay-Z and Notorious B.I.G. So sit back, download, and enjoy one of the best street mixtapes of 2015.

I will stick with pop, R&B, funk with R&B rap (my way) and create a meldy like no other.
I love rap, but don't like Illuminatis, they are satanists. Jay-Z is just one of them.
