Mitchell Lawler – Rookie of the Year [Mixtape]

Edmonton, AB – Edmonton’s up-and-coming MC, Mitchell Lawler, recently released his second mixtape, Rookie of the Year. Lawler is only 18 years old – barely legal— but he is on his grind and working hard to solidify his place in Edmonton’s hip-hop scene. He has a real knack for taking popular earworm tracks and turning them into his own creations.

The seven-track tape includes remixes of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Can’t Hold Us,” Childish Gambino’s “Freaks and Geeks, and more. The album’s third track, “April Showers” features some killer beats, courtesy of French producer, ProleteR – it’s kind of like Frank Sinatra got a little smoked out and decided to test the ropes of beat-making. Give the mixtape a listen below.


Also of note: The album cover features Lawler holding a cat. A big fluffy brown cat. And if you look closely, you’ll notice the Lawler is rocking mismatched socks with flip-flops. It’s pretty fierce. The mixtape was recorded, mixed and mastered by Justin “Dunna” McDonough at Resonate Music School & Studio. Scratches on “Rookie of the Year” were provided by Nato. Head over to Bandcamp to download a copy of the mixtape and stay tuned for new visuals coming out soon.
