"Albums should be proper meals, but every now and then a snack can really hold you over." Dilla's posthumous leaks inspired Mndsgn, and the Stones Throw artist lets us into an arsenal of unreleased tracks from his hard drive. Snaxx is the second iteration of this concept series, with volume 1, Snax, focusing on a slew of remixes. This beat tape features favorites from Mndsng's live/DJ shows such as "Deviled Eggs," and his left-field approach to producing—"one foot in the world of hip-hop" but with heavy psych, boogie, r&b nods—should appeal to fans of Anderson .Paak, Knxwledge, Swarvy and more. Oh, and he illustrated the cover art himself, based off of a photo taken by Dan Bensch. Check out: "Slappppp," "Hydration Station," "Sumdim," and "Snaxx w U" featuring Asal Hazel.
