One of the greatest artists of all time and one of my personal faves, as many of you already know!
A few Prince/Prince related mixtapes I found that I thought you’d be interested in.

Here we go now, here’s the download:
Thankfully this one is available for download. It’s a promotional mix by FA celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Wax Poetics, which came out earlier this year.
The beauty of this mix is that it incorporates the subjects of His Royal Badness’ Purple Empire in the 80’s!
Most of the artists in this mix were part of the Purple family in the 80’s when Prince was at his peak. But there’s also a couple of Frank Ocean tracks included towards the end but I’m not sure I see the connection?

Here’s what they say:
This mixtape is a must have for Prince fans.
