In the near future Dana Coppafeel is going to release a new mixtape called "Lil Yung Mixtape" on which he takes a lot of the beats from the new school of hip-hop and applies his straight spitting style to them in an attempt to prove that the emcee isn't dead, no matter what the beat sounds like.

The mixtape is a collaboration with No Request Sound System deejay, DJ DwooD, and will be backed by Uni.Fi Records.

Coppa's newest offering from the upcoming mixtape is "I'ma Bake Daily" which features him rapid-fire rapping for the entire track.
