Soulja Life Mentality _05.21.13
Soooo, I always been a fan of Souljah Slim, even when he was going by Magnolia Slim. He even talks about it in his rhymes, on this mix in particular I believe in the second song on this mix. Tracklist posted after the bump tomorrow. None the less, Soulja Always kept it real interesting. One of the more prominent figures of the New Orleans underground rap scene. Fueled with injustice in the community often times obviously caused by racial tension in the historic state of Louisiana. Soulja Slim definitely is as outspoken as they get often times akin to Tupac. Soulja Slim was tragically gunned down in his home city, For More Info Click Here. FYI it is highly believed to be true that the N.O.P.D. is to thank for his unfortunate early death… Support the Arts.

Sooooo, people be out here getting drunk. Intoxicated, plastered, hammered, so on and so on. So this one is for you Alki. These songs aren’t about drinking, or getting drunk. These are about the state you reach when you are past a buzz, and already plotting your plans… On today’s promo mix there are songs from Tejano, to the only Country song I believe to have come out of Motown. Yup Motown put out the first song on this mix, just so happens to be a country joint. Oh well enjoy the history and variables of alcohol…

Movie Posters _05.14.13
Soooo, I was recently in NY. And I must say New York, you guys know how to promote a damn movie. It’s relentless the amount of advertisements go up. It happens so fast, you didn’t even know you were looking at an advertisement. What you thought was a poster for some sort of something Like in liquor advertisement. Turns out it was about a damn movie poster. Which lead me to think about Soundtracks. So in this mix, I give you all songs from soundtracks. Ranging from Classics to the newer type of OST.
