Choicest Cuts Vol 3 May 2013

The new album from Talib Kweli was the big release this month. There were quite a few I could have included from that album but the 3 I went with seemed to fit the mix the best - The opening line of "5AM in Brooklyn" made a nice little intro for the mix too.

Large Pro features once again as he and Busta Rhymes switch up the style a bit with "Straight From the Golden." Bizarre Ride was probably my favourite hip hop album EVER, yeah I said it! So it's great to see the original members making something of a resurgence what with the 20th Anniversary Tour and numerous guest appearances they're on nowadays so I had to get this new uptempo Boogie Brown joint "Faith" in the mix.

Statik Selektah and Roc Marciano make really strong appearances this month with "21 & Over" and "Ruff Town" respectively.... The former especially seems to be everywhere right about now, putting in mad work.

The Papoose joint "Turn it Up" just bangs so hard with Premier on the boards, and DJ Inko outta Greece once again comes hard with his latest remix of Deck's R.E.C. Room, one of my fave Wu Tang solo joints.

Let me know if your feeling the track selection! Peace!

Still gets me how much effort went into Pharcyde's video for "Drop"...

Ahhhh man, when Busta broke onto the scene...
