born to roll
In addition to all sorts of real life adventures and exploits, I've been working on a west coast radio summer mix. I'm trying to only include sunshine state joints from 92-95. Four glorious summers, defined by the Chronic, the Predator
, a golden state age before the great rap war. I wanna capture the vibe of the good video
This song is on there. Xzhibit makes an appearance, before Dr. Dre signed him, and before x to the z was slanging custom car crap for mtv.
The Alkaholiks- DAAAM!!
According to the breaks
, DJ Muggs used at least four songs, which are listed below.
Cal Tjader- Morning Mist
Bob James- Nautilus
Le Pamplemouse- Gimme What You Got
Dennis Edwards- Don't Look Any Further
Somehow that makes so much sense. G-funk sampling seemed to be more than just stealing a hook or thieving a bassline; the nods and references to parental house party records and barbeque radio jams aim to evoke a mythical adolescence before gangbangin, the teenage heyday before the AK and Dre Day.
