’12 Best Mixtapes: #10 360 Everywhere & Back

360-final-cover-front

Last Spring, Queens newcomer 360, bottled his highs and lows into an enjoyable listen with his debut EP, Everywhere And Back. After stating his claim on the title track, he plays for keeps on the haunting “Own Thing”. Songwriting is where ’60′s strength lies and he diversifies his pen for the ladies (“Lovin’ You (Tonight)”) and the tramps (“Power Pussy”).  He keeps it light-hearted on “Woulda Kid” and strikes hard on the J.Cole-crafted “What Goes Up”. He fed the streets on “Cocaine” and even quenched its thirst (“Drink & Celebrate”). When it’s all said and done, Everywhere & Back‘s one heck of a roundtrip.

    Good pick

  • ?uest.

    Never heard of it(or him). I’m downloading now…

  • NYC

    ^^^
    id agree. i Actually was skeptical at first, but this turned out better than expected. Kinda underrated if you ask me.

  • 5 years ago XXL fired Elliott Wilson for to much dicksucking and he later had throat problems for swallowing too much sperm

    I knew B.Dot would post this lol his been pushing him for a while like those white guys

  • Lal

    This tape do go hard good pick b.dot

  • Flaka

    I ain’t really like ol boy at first but that jawn with Jada n Freddie Gibbs go hard. What’s the name of that B.dot?

  • Los

    This nigga gon blow I bet. He remind me of early 50

  • HIIIPOWER

    the mixtape is nice and he probably has a good career ahed of him…but top 10 mixtapes?? nah there were way better tapes out in 2012…

    • B.Dot

      There were a bunch of tapes this year. But I connected to this one on a lot of levels

  • Chubby

    lol…. *logs off*

  • Rob

    It’s obvious B.Dot knows who this kid and is trying to help him… if you really feeling his mixtape being that it’s your boy, the title should have said… “B.Dot’s Favorite mixtapes in 2012.” Statistically its nowhere near the best. But I could name 10 of the best right here for you, that many will agree on:

    Rick Ross – Rich Forever
    Meek Mill – Dreamchasers 2
    Big K.R.I.T. – 4 Eva NA Day
    The Game – California Republic
    50 Cent – The Lost Tape
    Stalley – Savage Journey to the American Dream
    Action Bronson – Blue Chips
    Big Sean – Detroit
    Slaughterhouse – On The House
    Freddie Gibbs – Baby Face Killa

    These mixtapes were much more of album quality and 1000 times better. lol

    • B.Dot

      @Rob I know every rapper in the game. Especially the ones u mentioned. So that has nothing to with anything.

      listen to the music and not focus on “stats”.

  • DaTruth

    That EP is fire. Tight flows and good lyrics. Looking forward to the next joint? When’s that supposed to drop?

  • it’s the roc

    Okay, I can live with this. It was a good mixtape and 360 does sound like he belongs. I’m interested to hear what his next project sounds like, I think that will define him, sink or swim.

  • Rob

    You don’t know every rapper in the game personally. And knowing a few people don’t mean that you have it right. I’ve heard his mixtape before and it’s nowhere near the ones mentioned. So to be in #10 place says a lot.

    Stats say a whole lot. But forget stats then, the mixtape is nowhere near any of those 10 mentioned, he aight but that mixtape is not on that level, in quality overall, beats are wack, lyrics, ect… no even close.

    it’s one of those mixtape you listen once and never again.

    “these dudes only care about hip hop culture when it helps them to assert their professional identities and forward their personal brands.” – @noz

  • Hip-Hop

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but this was a good mixtape if you actually sit down with it. Niggaz need to stop worrying who/ what website co-signs something and use they own logic. I’m not mad.

  • Trill Cosby

    This was def a top 10 mixtape of 2012. That Own Thing was ringing

  • A-1

    @ Rob so B.dot knows him because he likes his mixtape? That makes no sense

  • DMVinyourchick

    Rofl I kinda agree with rob I’ve seen B dot jock this dude for songs that are sub par, he ain’t trash but I definantly wouldn’t put him up there in the top spots, no doubt in my mind he got a look, but then again I guess if you got it why not

  • genericmofo’s

    this nigga turrible deadass its disgusting that radar has the audacity to post this smfh, b.dot tell boy target hiring

  • Mike S

    “There were a bunch of tapes this year. But I connected to this one on a lot of levels.”

    B.Dot, don’t you think you should be developing a list based on what tapes had the most impact on the “culture” at large, and not just the ones that resonated with you personally? Or does that make too much sense?

  • B.Dot

    @Mike S
    ^
    To answer ur question. Music came across my desk. Music was dope. Sat with it. Compared to others. Made list. The End.

  • DMVinyourchick

    Rofl common B dot. You compared this to Detroit? You compared this to gambinos royalty? Smh yea like I said he gotta look

  • Dashing

    ^Doper than XV Popular Culture? Doper than Honors English State of the Art? Doper than Chance the Rapper 10 Day? Doper than every other mixtape in 2012 except for the 9 above it?

    That’s the headscratching part.

  • Throne

    “I know know every rapper in the game” okay B Dot. Had to flex real quick? Lmao

  • Klo

    @ Dashing Honors English is trash no where near better than this tape. And Chance the rapper? Hahaha!

    • Dashing28

      Told you so. :)

  • Young Cee

    Lmao this is all you need to know about the honestly of this list , look at his download numbers and YouTube lmao and look at IP address on comments

  • Bad Biz Bureau

    THIS IS BAD… THIS TAPE WAS HORRIBLE.. ARE WE FOR REAL HERE?

  • End of the Day

    Opinions are like ass holes, everyone has one. It is highly unlikely 2 people on this post will have the same list but yall just throwing out names of tapes with no reasoning of why it should make the list. Half ass arguments. Tape was dope IMO, happy to see a NY rapper get creative and not settle with other sounds to fit in with the industry.

  • Ryuk

    Wow. What a shock. B.Dot put his clients/homeboys/cousins mixtape that no one listened to on the list. awesome

  • http://hiphopisntdeaditsjustsleeping.wordpress.com aboynamedandy

    @ the dude with the fucking ridiculous name

    “I knew B.Dot would post this lol his been pushing him for a while like those white guys”

    I’m guessing by “those white guys” you mean hipster sites. That’s funny because Rap Radar is one of the few music sites period giving 360 a look. And since when were writers and bloggers not allowed to appreciate an up-and-coming artist?

    Salute B.Dot, this EP belongs on the list.

  • Hazzy

    What the hell you put ya brother mixtape on the list lmao Hahahah

  • http://www.da-what.com Benja

    heard bout this guy’s buzz for a while but i have still been sleeping. this might be the push to get me to download it and see what everyone is talkin bout
    Y’all should check out my list here:

    Let me know what you think and leave a comment! Got some overlaps with RR and some other new ones. Naming 10 best is impossible but we are trying to throw some shine on projects that we thought were great from 2012.

  • Meyer Gotti

    This is obvious Payola, B.Dot the 2013 Funk Flex, Trying to get his artist a look and when u listen this tape is TURRIBLE(*Charles Barkley Voice*)!! Quit the BS B.Dot ya are not fooling any one. SMH

    • B.Dot

      LMAO @meye gotti. If you say 360 “was my artist”, how could it be “payola”? That. doesn’t. make. sense.

  • http://moveriteentertainment.com Loch

    I’m not gonna front.It does seem like RR been pushing this dude but he is working.I never heard his mixtape, but liked some of his freestyles.I think I’ll peep it.

    I know a lot of good mixtapes came out in 2012, I just heard this mixtape right now to see what this is all about and is somewhat ok, but C’mon Son. Best 10 in 2012?

    Now my 2 cents… when a person works for a reputable blog such as RR, you better make sure you’ve done your homework before putting a list claiming that those were the best, if not people will find you very suspect on what you’re trying to feed them.

    My question is, how does a DJ Drama hosted mixtape from Slaughterhouse that had much impact… “On The House” be forgotten.

    50 Cent’s 5 (Murder By Numbers)? No?

    I mean, do you seriously think this tape was the best, it had less than 2k downloads on DP (Which I’m sure were from people redirected by RR and I’m sure most people deleted it by now)…. On the House had 273,453 downloads, 5 had 574,493 and that’s just on one site. Forget the download numbers even though it shows how much people wanted it, but those tapes are just 1000 times better, no excuse whatsoever!
