Coventry rapper Mugun stops by to tell VIPER all about his favourite mixtape of all time…

What’s your favourite mixtape ever?

Can’t say it’s my favourite ever, but my FIRST favourite is Joey Bada$$ ‘1999’.

Why is it so significant to you?

This mixtape was on repeat for me. The first time I heard it, I felt like I was seeing the world through a completely different lens. 

Were there any artists or producers that you discovered through this tape? Where exactly were you when you heard the mixtape for the first time?

The first time a song from this project was ever played to me, an older college kid played it to me during a lesson at about 5:30pm [laughs]. Shouts to that guy.

Did it come into your life at a significant time?

Yeah I guess so and it was at a time when I was really deep diving and syncing into that real cold n gritty 90’s New York Hip Hop, around Winter 2012.

Describe the mixtape in three words?

Relatable, Free, Confident.

What song is your personal favourite?

It’s hard, I went through cycles on this mixtape but it might be ‘Hardknock’. 

If you could put a price on this mixtape, how much would you pay?

It was priced right because I was broke but I still caught a copy!

Did you have a physical copy?

No I didn’t have a physical copy, it was lone of the first projects in my Apple Music collection.

No? Which is your favourite that you have a physical copy of?

I haven’t got no physical copies of anything lol.
