Peace world. My name is Omega:NYC and I am a DJ. These are my written words that I dedicate to this web log of mine. I am in the process of figuring out why I decided to keep posting on the blog.
This mix has nothing to do with it but I am happy I found it out there, somewhere, to share. (I ain't rhyming!)
Back to the mix you see posted. This dude named 8thW1 is the main feature in my opinion. The other emcees are there to distract you from the fact that 8thW1 is featured on 6 out of the 23 tracks, which I clearly see as a push from the DJ team - 2HB.
Some might see this as a compilation and others may consider it a mixtape. Whatever you classify this as, take time to listen to the emcees. I miss raw hip hop and there is no better way to revisit that time and space than with a mix of who school rappers over a "rare groove" mixtape.
And what do I mean by that? Rappers spitting over breaks that are not broke!!! That's right... I said it... brakes that aren't broke! Classic tracks that have been sampled, but in this instance are played the entire way through, while we listen to the next hottest mc do his thing.
But I like it... I can't deny it, cause I tried it... but with records, not actual emcees. Anyway I dish it out, this is something you should have in your collection. If for no other reason than the song selection featured. 2HungryBros. stay true to the mixtape game and lace us with dope tracks and exclusive rhymes.
