Very pleased to present something I’ve been meaning to do for a while – an underground hip hop mix. Â I don’t DJ hip hop that much, so the mixing is pretty basic, but I’m happy with it and the mixes are undistracting. Â The songs are some real favorites, and it was hard picking tracks from these artists because I listen to them all so extensively.
The 9th Wonder track is soo sick – awesome hook, and the Nas lyrics are perfect for the beat. Â This song is really hard to find in good quality – you’ll notice the Nas vocals sound muffled. Â I have this song in FLAC and it sounds exactly the same as the 320 I used for this mix. Â The Atmosphere track is perhaps one of the first of his that I really liked. Â I should really do a post on Atmosphere soon.. I have some pretty strong opinions about his stage personality and his music, which I guess I’ll save for something in the very near future. Â The Mcenroe beat is something my younger brother turned me on to ages ago, but I couldn’t tell you what the track name is. Â All I know is it’s off his album “Billy’s Vision”. Â The RJD2 track is a fucking slammer – one of the most amazing hip hop beats ever made, I think.
