I have been jamming to some of these songs since May so I hope you indulge me in some of my song choices. I have the pleasure of including some new tracks by Syleena Johnson and Kindred The Family. I’m the Mixtress of R&B so of course I have Jill Scott, Beyonce, Chris Brown, Monica and Tyrese. Although the mix is R&B flavored, I have some hip hop included like that new song Otis by Jay Z and Kanye, some Frank Ocean, Big Sean and J.Cole. I’m sure this mixtape will make you dance so I put in some dance tracks by Pitbull and a new jam “Titanium” from David Guetta featuring Mary that is HOT even with the tags. For my Reggae massive I have some Rhianna, Movado, Elephant Man and a great tune from Melanie Fiona. I got some slow jams too: this mix reminds me of those old school Hot 97 bootleg cds lol
It’s time for Cupid’s Hunt again! 2010 and this is my third year doing it!
Well I’ve actually been down since the beginning..when it was just a few of us…now we have over 30 participants! I’m so excited about us joining in to do this collaboration across so many different websites.
This mix is full of tracks that I heard live. Whether the artist was on the come-up or like in the case of D’Angelo, recorded the best album she/he recorded in my book. I saw him at the Beacon…in the all white (Holla if you hear me) when Mos Def was his opening act…I caught Kindred at Le Bar Bat, Jilly and Badu in Philly…Jaguar and Anthony in Jersey and Algebra in ATL. I stumbled into a bar years ago and heard Goapele..staggered into another and heard Floetry. I paid good monies to see Maxwell and Raphael and never regretted a dime!! When I had the pleasure of seeing these artists perform these songs, it sent an aural pleasure down into my bones. I know this one will be on repeat in my IPod…I hope it will be for you too!
