Here, you'll find a list of all the new mixtapes of 2018. New albums by your favorite artist are always exciting, but mixtapes can have their own appeal. A mixtape is sometimes part of a promotion for a larger upcoming project or a way to hold fans over if an artist is busy and unable to release a full-blown album for the foreseeable future. Whatever the reason, it's always nice to hear a few new tracks by a musician you love. 

A lot of rappers and hip hop artists release mixtapes because they do not have to worry about getting the rights to a sample or just want to put out their own unofficial remix of a popular song. Usually released on SoundCloud, DatPiff, or other streaming services, the best rap mixtapes are dropping hot, so check out this updated ranking. Some good 2018 mixtapes include Lil Wayne's Dedication 6: Reloaded and Fetty Wap's For My Fans 3: The Final Chapter.
