description:
The first thing I thought of when I read this contest description was "1, 2, 3, 4..." like I was lining up all the songs in the right order, and then all of a sudden, "...I declare a thumb war" attached itself to the end. So that's my title!

I just wanted to have a little fun with it and include some cool songs.
I also did another 'degrees of separation' type mix before this contest, so feel free to check it out as well: "We're All In The Same Gang"

Good luck to all, and to all a good night!

This one's a good intro if you're not familiar with him.

Track Description:
...Treach popped up on Heavy D. & The Boyz's "Friends & Respect" track in '94.

While Heavy D. is probably more well known for his smoothed out R&B influence, he's got pure rhyming skills, and I really like this song off his 'Big Tyme' album.

Year: 2006
Track Description:
...Capitol A also guests on a Jimpster track off the 2006 'Amour' album from the UK DJ/remixer.

This particular track is a good way to end the mix. It takes you to a different, dreamlike place (we started two tracks ago with Quasimoto). And since we started the mix with an artist from the UK, why not finish it with another one? Jimpster is Jamie Odell and co-runs Freerange Records in the UK.
