While it appears that Top Dawg Entertainment has been making moves for a short period of time, the reality is that it was been a decade-long marathon for the successful Los Angeles-bred label. So, their in-house one man band man, multi-hyphenate MixedByAli began sharing musical history lessons of TDE’s discography with his weekly throwback mix, and now the engineer-mixer-tour DJ has liberated a second volume of the series.
Perhaps as a precursor to the multiple projects TDE president Dave Free recently recently announced (for those keeping score: Isaiah Rashad, SZA, ScHoolboy Q and Ab-Soul), Ali revisits albums and mixtapes ranging from Control System to Setbacks, from Jay Rock’s version of “How To Rob” and everything in between.
Short but sweet, vibe out to it below.
UPDATE: ScHoolboy Q’s tour DJ, Mack Wop, also came through with his own mix:
