2020 has been filled with great music. From well known artists to up and coming acts, there has been no shortage of projects with re-play value. This article is specific to the month of March. Whether you were looking back at the month to see which tapes dropped or are comparing which month had the best releases, this article has you covered. March saw new releases from CHIKA, Conway and Alchemist and more.
The distinction between albums, mixtapes and EPs seems to get blurred more and with each year that passes. Some artists claim they released a mixtape despite it being a studio LP and others will label a 15-track project an EP. Simply put, there’s not much rhyme or reason anymore.
But whether it’s just a label or artists releasing mixtapes and EPs in the traditional sense, plenty of these projects are still being delivered despite the ambiguity. HipHopDX has complied the best of the best in an effort to help fans keep track of what’s dropped in 2020. This month’s list includes new music from CHIKA and Conway The Machine.

Best Mixtapes and EPs Of March 2020
Industry Games, CHIKA
Viral Instagram star-turned-professional rapper Chika released her debut project Industry Games after years of grinding. Her goal — to “make you think” — is fully realized throughout the seven-track effort. Backed by a handful of bass heavy beats, the 23-year-old Alabama native addresses her hustle, weight issues and haters with the expertise of any seasoned MC.
LULU, Conway & Alchemist
Conway The Machine and Alchemist are no strangers, having worked on multiple songs together over the past few years. But the two finally linked up for a collaborative project titled LULU, which has become the clear frontrunner for best EP of 2020. Conway’s vicious yet meticulous bars perfectly complement Alchemist’s often chilling sounds, resulting in a seven-track effort with lots of replay value. And while the EP’s briefness is part of the appeal, the duo’s chemistry makes one hopeful they’ll concoct a full-length project in the future.
