In one of the earlier episodes of Left Coast Radio I spun an all-West Coast set, ranging from the late (2Pac, Mac Dre), the past (Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound) the present (AD, Casey Veggies) and even the obscure (Domino, Soopafly). Following that, I made a mix dedicated to all things (old) Roc-A-Fella. For our latest episode, I did a mixture of both: an set of all Dr. Dre-related tracks.
I usually get a little homesick around my birthday; perhaps that was the catalyst for this set.
In this set I felt a bit more nostalgic and and tried to pack in roughly two decades of tracks from Dre’s extremely expansive catalog (keep in mind, he’s been doing music since the mid-1980s; I began at around 1992) into a 40-minute set, which include songs from many of his former protégés (Knoc-turn’al, Sam Sneed, The Game, 50 Cent, Obie Trice), tracks from living and departed legends (Ol Dirty Bastard, 2Pac, JAY Z, Eminem), and even some tracks you may not have known he had his fingerprints on.
Listen to the full mix below (previous episodes can be heard here), and also check out episode 5 of Left Coast Radio (which is a combination of Dre, R&B, and a set dedicated to every artist 50 Cent dissed. Seriously) on our SoundCloud page.
Heads up: the next episode (no pun intended) with be a set dedicated to the late great, J Dilla.
