VA – I Love Hip Hop (The Mixtape)

blame it on Shake February 16, 2009

Tonight I got an email about someone inquiring about help with a list of songs about the love of hip hop. A project they were putting together for school. It reminded me of a few years back… in 2005 I used to surf around the internets, checking out certain forums and what not. Putting together little compilations for the people around the way. This particular mix was perfect for the dopeboy who sent the email; and I figured since it’s already uploaded I’d share with ya’ll as well.

There’s no exclusives or anything. Just a collection of tracks I put together a few years back that represented an artists love for hip hop. Pretty good mix of artists if I don’t say so my self. From Atmosphere to The Roots, Zion I to Aceyalone, Cee-Lo to The Thrday, Common, LL Cool J and more.

    You should do more catogoric themed mixes…..like a smoking mixtape.

  • Jay

    I don’t understand why everyone loves Atmosphere. They are so overrated, and slug’s lyrics are pretty sub par. I feel like people only listen to them to say they listen to underground.

  • shake do you have a portfolio of your artwork or anything?

  • i used to have it online, but server issues. when i get some free time i wanna get that back up. cause i wanna make a strong push at design from now on.

  • Daniel

    at first the link didn’t work but just try clicking on the link and opening up new tabs or windows instead of refreshing the page. the second time i went to it, it worked. i don’t know how to host files but if i knew how i would post a link lol.
