“Blessings” – Mixtape Monday Vol. XXXVII Part I & II

37

Gottdamn. What a week it has been, new art, new music, new festivals. What a time to be alive. I’m incredibly thankful for all these blessings, hence the titled and focus of this week’s Mixtape Monday Volume XXXVII.

This week’s mix is a double feature, with the Part I focusing on the rock and roll psychedelic vibes that have had the Bay in a mood for decades with artists like The Byrds, The Zombies, Jefferson Airplane, Motion, The Doors, The Monkees, Kristin Diable, Janis Joplin, Nancy Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, Chyvonne Scott, Freddie Scott, and Oakland’s very own Fantastic Negrito.

Part II takes things back to hip hop, with Travi$ Scott, Big K.R.I.T., Kendrick Lamar, Angel Haze, Clipse, OutKast, Chance the Rapper, Freeway, JAY Z, Beanie Seagel, The Game, Lance, Dr. Dre, and Vic Mensa.

This week’s mix is super exciting because it features several friends and colleague’s of mine, and their fresh new projects. We have songs from Fantastic Negrito’s debut album “The Last Days of Oakland”, which I designed and illustrated, Lance//Fuze the MC’s “Lance is a Genius” second LP, and Vic Mensa’s debut EP “There’s a Lot Going On”. Very aptly titled. It’s a good time for music, I hope you enjoy.
