A mixture of Trap, Dubstep and Hip-Hop has fused together to create The Compound. The Compound Mixtape featuring Tayyib Ali, Khadafi Dub, Mary Magdalan, Jakes (UK), Faceasaurus Rex, Money Car$in Monopoly Bros, and others has been released as a free download.
Mixtapes have become an important and integral part of the Hip-Hop culture. It has revolutionized the Hip-Hop and Rap music industry, drastically changing the way we hear and buy Hip-Hop music. Mixtape compilations are now the root of a new power struggle, the urban streets of America takes on the corporate music industry. The Compound has put together a great mix, featuring some pretty cool tracks and some hot collaborations.
Tayyib Ali brings his Hip-Hop vocals to the first single Trap $#*! with EDM’s biggest host DJ Khadafi Dub who is currently touring Egypt. Mary Magdalan is true proof that no matter where you come from, you can rise above and make more of your life. Mary’s story is nothing short of mesmerizing and is a proven source of inspiration.
Jakes on the other hand is many things to many people, to some he is the voice of TC’s smash hits ‘Deep’, ‘Drink’ and ‘Mindkiller’, to others he is the Daddy of the Bristolian Dubstep crew H.E.N.C.H and to musical historians he is one of the most interesting vocalists that underground British music can lay claim to.
Faceassarus Rex is a Dubstep/Rap group on the rise in Philly. Faceasaurus Rex consists of Drummer/DJ/Producer- KDUB and MC – The Grand Marquis. They bring their spaced out track “Next Level” to the mix.

Money Car$in has collaborated with many well-known artists, including Redman, Fred the Godson, Lloyd Banks, and Jeremiah to name a few. On the mixtape he displays his craft by joining up with Mary Magdalan, Robokop and Tropkillaz.
West Philly natives, the Monopoly Bros, are known for being very versatile with their sick flows and street-wise lyrics. Their sound consists of Hip-Hop, Trap, and Dubstep. Very capable of delivering party records as well as metaphor driven tracks you just want to put on repeat in your car. Their video “Top of the Fitted” has also been released.
The Compound Mixtape created and Executive Produced by David Apostrophe, consists of no throwaways. It is a coherent album you can play from start to finish. This mixtape will put your faith back in hip hop and proves that there are still artists out there putting out real music, and people like David willing to put it all together.
From beginning to end, this is a classic. I can’t think of a negative thing to say about this mixtape. The flow, rhymes, and beats are all on point. Tight stuff, definitely worth your listen!
