The Toronto born and New York resident, DJ Shoestring, continues his Game of Thrones series which now hits Volume 5. DJ Shoestring is also known for the ‘That Real, That Rugged’ mixtape series, which have achieved over 2 million downloads.
Shoestring says his latest project will be a seven part series. Each mixtape in the Iron Throne series features a Game of Thrones theme, including a cover and an official intro produced by Shoestring. The free downloads include exclusive songs and shout outs from notable rappers like 50 Cent, Jadakiss, Nas, The Wu Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, and many more.
DJ Shoestring is also preparing to work with superstar rapper 50 Cent this summer. Apparently 50 Cent has recently labeled Shoestring “as one of the top DJs to look out for in the future,” .
DJ Shoestring has already been seen on MTV, MTVu, MTV Canada, BET via 106 and Park, The Toronto Music Festival. Shoestring also completed an East Coast club tour late last year.
Volume 5 of DJ Shoestring’s Game of Thrones Mixtape Series is an entertaining project that boasts just enough feature flavors without falling on the formulaic side. Shoestring will likely find traction with quite a few tracks on this mixtape as he delivers a couple of bangers and nice sizable collaborations.
There is definitely a good mix of tracks boasting a hard hitting sound with heavy bass and quick drum patterns. It’s just a matter of time before the hip hop world sits up and takes notice of this nineteen-year-old mixtape messiah.
Take one look at the track listing, the features and then listen to the mixtape. Now tell me it doesn’t sound exactly as you guessed it would? There is no weak beat or verse here!
