Brace yourself, I’ll take you on a trip down memory lane
~ a playlist for a dose of reality, from master MCs and urban poets, from people that have lived in the underworld of modernia — or just have a message to spit into the world in the form of enrapturing stories about survivals, battles, loves.
Artists: Kendrick Lamar + 2pac + Nas + Wu Tang Clan + MF Doom + Madvillain + Run The Jewels + A Tribe Called Quest + Ka + Kanye
Passionate lyricism from the arena of life. Tracks for those wanting to hear a good story, or just vibe out on a late night. Music from men that are truly acting out as the protagonists of their life.
