Welcome back to Mixtape Mondays, we had a week off last week as I was down and out with a super nasty case of the flu. But we’re back this week with yet another strange and bizarre mix of new music, and a sneak preview of my upcoming thesis work.
This week we have artists in the running such as The Coup, Mos Def, Vince Staples, Desi Mo, Rick Ross, Meek Mill & Drake, Kanye West, Blackalicious, Zap Mama, Kendrick Lamar, Janelle Monae, Erykah Badu, Fantastic Negrito, The Game, Nas, will.i.am, BJ The Chicago Kid and Rihanna. Hope you enjoy!
Fantastic Negrito’s newest single “Working Poor” is out, for his upcoming album The Last Days of Oakland. I did the design layout for the single cover – and if you keep your eyes peeled they’ll be more Fantastic Negrito art by your’s truly coming out soon!
Check out the song, show love, buy the song, and support Oakland artists and musicians!
All the love.

Mixtape Monday is live! This week’s mix is quick and to the point clocking in at 45 minutes, with some classic funk. I’ve been revisiting a lot of 90’s G Funk era hip hop of late, pulled up some of the main songs and bands they’d sampled. Musicians such as, Betty Davis, Rick James, George Clinton, Funkadelic, Parliament, Roy Ayers Ubiquity, Sly & The Family Stone, Sun Ra – and then we got some tracks by Kendrick Lamar and Warren G to tie the whole production together.
Keep your eyes peeled, we should have a new review coming up soon – now that Rihanna’s amazing “ANTI” has dropped.
Until then, Enjoy!
