I GOT YA KILLA TAPE RIGHT HERE, GOD!!!!

This is an attempt to break out of my recent spate of playing torch songs, deep delta blues, classic country, and shoegaze tearjerkers.

A guy at work who has never been to the East Coast reveres the Golden Age of Hip-Hop to the point where after learning that I also have a certain reverence for that era and a dope ass record collection to boot decided that he would talk my ear off every night debating the relative merits of various MC's and producers, etc. I'm not even really into hip-hop right now, but I don't mind chewing the fat every now and again. So after a particularly vexing night - with events unrelated to Hip Hop Guy's monologues - I decided to make a "Killa Tape" for this dude. I asked him to make me one ages ago, but to no avail. I told him that my tape would not be a "best of" but would be fun, with solid choices, some remixes, and all selections would contribute to a a certain soulful vibe, which is what hip hop was all about anyway. I told him, Look if Rakim, who is one of my fave MC's doesn't make the tape for whatever reason, I'm not gonna slice my wrists open over it, OK? He chuckled and put his top 5 MC's of all-time argument to rest for a smooth five minutes.

Am I enabling him? Maybe, but there are much worse things. God bless the lad.

Hopefully he won't be too disappointed that there isn't any PE, BDP, or Jungle Brothers on this mix.

So this is a distraction from my romantic misfortunes and a blast from the past.

The last song which fits on a tape, but not on a CD is Eyedea and Abilities', "Exhausted Love".

Track Description:
This mix actually starts with about a minute of Kool and the Gang's "Who's Gonna Take the Weight" - right up to the point that where the title's question is asked, then I cut in with Tribe. If you're not on board with starting a mix with Q-Tip & Company, then this mix probably won't make your day.

Track Description:
A friend of mine put this song after the previous song on a mix way back in '96, so I had to honor that brilliance here years later. Peace to you, Clinton.

Akinyele may be best remembered for his appearance on the Main Source banger, "Live at the BBQ", which introduced the world to Nasty Nas, whose name was soon to be shortened to Nas. I feel kind of stupid for not including that on here now. Oh well.

Like many people who have made hip-hop mixtapes, I, too, for sake of keeping things lively, like to include funk and soul jams, especially if they have been heavily sampled by a number of hip-hop artists.

This one was abused to death by the West Coast gangster rappers.
