[Episode #115] ATTITUDE (The NWA Mixtape)

The new film Straight Outta Compton has been officially released and it got the world back into the Old School Rap Scene. More specifically at the West Coast's classic sound of the hardcore Hip-Hop group known as N.W.A. Of course, we know it's N***as With Attitude. NWA came in the music scene in the late 80s & early 90s with the some of their well known members: Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, MC Ren, and D.O.C.
The group made classic records and then lead to multiple legendary careers. From the gritty streets of Compton to the big screen, we have a group that made history.
Since a lotta deejays are going into a frenzy of mixes, I decided to wake up this morning and record a quick tribute of my own...RAW and live!

[Episode #114] Super Awesome Mix

This episode expands the horizons here at THEMIXLAB. Here is a mixtape that was inspired by the movie Guardians Of The Galaxy and the soundtrack a.k.a. the Awesome Mix by Star Lord/Peter Quill. Not only would you find almost all the hits in the film but also a heavy dose of other realtive songs. These other songs are also great possible options for the sequel of the movie in my opinion. Along, with this mix you'll find smooth transitions, minor scratches, and remixes. I know it's not my signature Hip-Hop but its good tunes to enjoy. Doing something out of the norm is something I like to do at times to show that I am a music lover first. Classic Rock, Soul, Funk and Old School. Sit back, relax & God Bless! | | | |
