Ingredients: Brooklyn, a dash of Jersey, Yonkers, and Queens.
This week’s mix is a set of raw and dirty hip-hop from late 90′s to early 2000′s.
These tracks are anthems in and around New York, and are best served with the windows open and the volume UP. Some make me bounce, some make me sing, and some make me feel like I’m about to roll someone, or get rolled. And that’s why we love NY- explicit, raw, and alive, vice and virtue.
Now smash a bottle on the curb, punch your best friend in the face, and sing along!
