Buffalo, New York-based DeepThinka Records just released Rebel Radio 45: The Free Double Mixtape mixed by DJ Anubus, DJ Optimus Prime and Billy Drease Williams. Why do we care? Well, mostly because it's a dope mixtape that's free, but also because Denver's own ManeLine is featured on the project next to such hip-hop luminaries as Pete Rock, Camp Lo and Styles P. The group's song, "Ain't Real, Ain't Right," is featured on the second part of the mix handled by DJ Optimus Prime. Download the free mixtape here!
