Jimi Izrael and DJ Diva are back with a new mixtape for The Denzel Principle. I’m off vacation/work break to bring you a hot new mixtape. Jimi Izreal, the author of The Denzel Principle: Why Black Women can’t Find Good Black Men, reached out to me to fashion a new mix for him.
This Monday Mixtape is all about my birthday idol Mariah Carey. We all share a birthday with someone…and I do with Mariah! Mariah Carey has been an idol of mine for long time. We share the same birthday and although she is 4 years older than me..she has always provided me with the inspiration to follow my dreams.
I have to say that I had a great time putting this one together. I was going to do Disco but somehow it shaped up into a battle between Diana Ross and Donna Summer. Long before there was a Bey Bey and Rhi Rhi battle…there was the grown Diva battle between Diana and Donna. Disco was good for Diana’s emerging solo career and for the newcomer Donna’s breakout hits. The 70’s were good to these ladies so I included most of their fast hits!
This week”s Monday Mixtape is a request by @Eb_the_Celeb. A few months back she requested a 90’s girl mix. I tried to include many of the girl groups and collabos that were quite popular in 90’s R&B.
This mixtape is a step out of the box. Jimi Izrael contacted me and requested that I do a mixtape for the release of his new book “The Denzel Principle”.
This was a new experience for me..I took his selected readings…read by the Dizzle himself and laid them over popular instrumentals. I took some of the most recent R&B and hip hop songs and placed them between the tracks.
I usually start of the year with a Prince Mix so I’m a week behind for all you stans out there!
For this mix I decided to combine some off-the-wall Prince songs combined with some of my favorites from his obscure albums. I also threw in a few of my favorite B-Sides for you too.
I love Prince and I love yall…so here you go!
So here it is….My last mix of the year. I have to tell the truth..I’m not sorry to see 2009 go..
Here are my favorite tracks of 2009. Some hip hop..some R&B..a lot of Diva…I even provided my commentary!
Have a blessed and safe New Year and see you on the other side of 10 🙂
This is my December Mix aka The Usual Suspects. I’ve been listening to a lot of new albums these past few weeks and I’m proud to say that my favorite singers came hard! Say what you will about R. Kelly, Chris Brown and Alicia Keys but their artistic work stands firm. Hardships, mistakes and even crimes cannot take away their talent. I hope you enjoy the mix!
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!
