Playlist of the Week: Dope Beats 001

This week is dedicated to the silent voices of music, the producers, instrumentalists, DJ’s, and beatmakers who often don’t get the recognition they deserve.  Some new and rising acts like BadBadNotGood (they’re going to be on the new Kendrick Lamar album) and some of the OG’s like J Dilla (R.I.P.), Dr. No, and DJ Jazzy Jeff.

There’s 28 tracks of heat and clocking in at just under 2-hours.  No need to decipher any lyrics with this one, just hit play and let the vibes penetrate your eardrums (sexual innuendo intended).

Playlist of the Week: 00’s Hip-Hop Hits

Need to feel old?  It’s been 14-years since 50 Cent released Get Rich or Die Tryin’ .  Let that sink in for some time, and while you marinate in your inevitable mid-life crisis, what better way to deal with that trauma than this week’s playlist of Hip-Hop Hits from the 2000’s.

A whopping 132-songs and 9+ hours of the classics (yeah, these are playing on classic radio now) from 50 Cent, DMX, Nelly, and every other rapper you haven’t heard from in a long, long time.  And for those of you wondering, yes, Ja Rule is here too.

Playlist of the Week: Cynic 80’s

Sorry for the tardiness on the weekly playlist.  We’ve been swamped with multiple obligations so it’s making things a bit difficult to keep on track but here is the playlist of the week, Cynic 80’s.

Kool & The Gang, George Michael, The Eurythmics, Duran Duran, and of course the Rick Roll Master himself Rick Astley (plus a ton more of course)!  A whopping 5-and-a-half hours of 80’s hits.

We promise we’ll get back into the swing of things sooner than later!
