The new year is starting out great for me…I’ve been pulled back into my old hustle of making customized mixtapes. I had so much fun with this one. It has everything on it from hip-hop to soca. A little reggae, some R&B and of course some old school!!!
This mix means a lot to me. Those of you who knew me as a teenager, knew that I was a firm follower of the Daisy Age. I walked around with hand painted daisies on the butts of my jeans, wore a leather Africa piece, had the Mexican poncho with the Native American woven backpack. In my ears was a yellow Sony waterproof Walkman with homemade mixtapes of pro Black, pro Women, pro progress music. This was also during the aftermath of the crack epidemic…when Harlem still could resemble New Jack City..and the lyrics in the musics lamented the effects of crack and what it did to ordinary people.
This weeks Monday Mixtape is all about the honorees of the Vh1 Hip Hop Honors of 2008. I have Slick Rick, De La Soul, Naughty By Nature, & Cypress Hill…Enjoy!!!!
