Colin Munroe - Colin Munroe is the Unsung Hero (Mixtape) (2008)

This mixtape comes from a singer/producer by the name of Colin Munroe from Ontario, Canada. I first heard of the artist when his remix to Kanye's "Flashing Lights" created a little buzz a couple years ago (if you haven't heard it, listen here: "I Want Those Flashing Lights (Kanye Remix)").  Later that year Colin dropped this project, which sounds like a indie rock-hip/hop-pop mash. Wale, Drake, Dallas Austin, Joell Ortiz, Novel, Mickey Factz, and a few others make appearances on The Unsung Hero. My favorite tracks are "Piano Lessons", "Will I Stay (Remix)", "One More Chance", and "What the Young Man Says." The links to download or listen are below.
