This is Hip Hop


Monday's Mix

-Every Monday we release a "CD Style" playlist to help get your week started right.

-Just like we did in the 90's and 2000's. Where we spend countless hours looking for songs to download on Limewire, Frostwire, or convert a song from YouTube to mp3.

-Then diligently, arranging the songs to make sure that there was a smooth flow from song to song. Shuffling wasn't a thought.

-We just popped the CD into the dusty boombox in the corner of the garage, the multi-disc changer in our bedroom, or in the car when we hit the open road with our flip phone in pocket.

The intro to the first song on this mixtape says it best. So I'll just let Joel Ortiz describe this playlist:

"Yo, do me a favor

Accidentally step on your white sun glasses

We don't wear those over here, this is hip hop

This is Carhartt jackets

Timberland boots, unlaced

This is Champion hoodies, chicken wings and french fries

RIP pieces on the handball court

This is us still fightin' police brutality, this is hip hop"
