The mixtape features an all-star cast of guest appearances, including Young Thug, Jadakiss, Future, and Gucci Mane. However, it’s Young Scooter who shines on every track, solidifying his place as one of the trap kings of the game.

The production on this tape is also on point. Producers such as Mo-X-Clusive, Zaytoven, and C Note blessed the project with beats that were fire. Every time I hear “77 Birds” or “Down Bad,” the beats take over and I can’t help but nod my head.

But what really made this mixtape special was the way it was presented. The LiveMixtapes DJs curated the tape expertly. They knew exactly which tracks to put together to make the listening experience a journey through the streets. DJ Green Lantern, DJ Swamp Izzo, and DJ Smallz hosted the project adding authenticity to the project, making it feel like a true representation of the trap life.

In conclusion, “Married to the Streets” is a mixtape that should be in every Southern rap fan’s collection. Its release on LiveMixtapes, hosted by the expert curation of DJ Green Lantern, DJ Swamp Izzo and DJ Smallz, solidified it as a classic and it’s still bumping in the trap till this day.
