Hypedog Presents: 100 Best Beat Tapes / Instrumental LP's Of 2011.

Around the same time last year, we dropped you a 50 Best Of Beat Tapes post with hopes to bring more attention to projects released by some popular and lesser-known producers in 2010. We thought it was only right to double the stakes and provide you with links to what we think are the 100 best beat tapes and instrumental albums from 2011. 98% of the links provided take you straight to the producers/labels Bandcamp page with streams and links to purchase or download for free. Once again, make sure you check out each link and share this post with your local beat fanatic. A huge shout-out to every one of these producers below for the movements made in 2011. See you all in 2012
