DJ Low Key will be in Austin at SXSW deejaying for national hip-hop group Tanya Morgan next week. Before he heads out, though, he hooked us up with his new mixtape, Ketchup, with L.A. rapper TiRon. For those unaware, TiRon made some noise a couple of years ago with his first project, Handshakes & Pounds, and is working with Universal Records artist Pacific Division. The mixtape features production from Cook Classics, Phonix, Swiff D, Godlee Barnes and Jack Samples Pros, among others, as well as appearances from Blu, Pacific Division, Ayomari, Buff1 and Miguel & Tunji. Watch the video for one of the standout tracks from the project, "3 Drink Minimum," and download the mixtape after the jump.
