After months of teasing, Post Malone released his highly anticipated mixtape titled, August 26th. The new mixtape is a culmination of Malone's influences and has a couple of radio ready hits.

August 26th features radio ready songs like "Money Made Me Do It" featuring 2 Chainz. The infectious beat rides well in the listeners ear and is nothing over the top but gets the job done.

If trap hits are more your style, then Malone has you covered with "Git Wit U," "Monte" featuring Lil Yachty and "Lonely" featuring Jaden Smith and Teo.

Meanwhile, Post Malone flexes his versatility on "Hollywood Dreams Come Down" which features a sample of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams." The autotune is strong on the track however, if you listen closely, you can figure out that Malone doesn't really need the autotune at all.

That being said, the track breaks down into a trap-styled banger in the second half with a trunk rattling beat that sends a clear message to Malone's haters.

All in all August 26th is a nice 10-track offering from Malone that wets the palette of fans until he brings us his album.

In the meantime fans are going to have something to blast in their car for quite some time.
