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 week’s mixtape is fulfilling a request from a long term blogger friend. SueZette. We have such long history (maybe I’ll blog about it on the private spot Zette ;)) but I love this girl. She is magnificent and striking and intelligent…she was going in a couple of weeks ago on Twitter and I dug what she was playing so I offered to make her a mix. I hope you enjoy our version of Sexcellence!
So this week’s mix is all about cheating songs. Nuff said! Enjoy and don’t get caught! I don’t wanna read about none of yall in the news!
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!
R & B has been making a hard comeback! Maxwell, Al B Sure, Ryan Leslie…these mens been doing it!
I put together a bunch of my favorites as well as some new and cool joints I love.

Mellow May – This mix was requested by my best friend Tutu. Yeah she’s my best friend. Divaliscious is my sister and Tutu is my best friend. She requested this mix for her b’day back in April and although I was still going to class at Scratch, I put this together for her. I used some of songs I was listening to in April and may…with some of the songs i used for my final at the Scratch Academy…with some of the songs I heard during Tutu’s birthday weekend…
Since this really isn’t Maxwell the singer as Media Takeout lied….
