**THIS LIST IS IN ORDER OF RELEASE YEAR, NOT WORST TO BEST**

**THE FIRST LIST IS PITCHFORKS, NOT MINE**

Scrolling down the TL a couple days ago, and felt the overwhelming need to make this list, ASAP (with the help of my Dungeon Twitter Family), after we were appalled at how trash @Pitchfork‘s “Top 50 Rap Mixtapes of the Millenium” list was……

Yeah, there were some gems in there, that are also repeated on my list. But for the most part, quite a few of these mixtapes are not top-50 worthy.
