No matter how much time passes, I will always have love for hip-hop music! Over the last couple of decades, the sound of the genre has drastically changed. Some of it is good, but a lot of it terrible as far as I am concerned. I won't bother getting up on my "soapbox" ranting about how many rappers don't spit rhymes anymore, and how the content suffers because of it. Some of you may feel totally different about the subject, and I can respect that. Like you, I have a choice about what artists make it into my listening rotation, and today I am showcasing some of the emcees on my radar in this mixx. There are some new, classic and remixed tracks on this joint! When you get a chance, put your ears on it. If you like what you hear, then show some support.

Today, I am sharing some of the soulful tracks that I have in heavy rotation right now. There's new stuff, remixes, classics and underground joints! I keep my ears on the underground soul scene because that is where I find the music I like. I am on a constant hunt for unheard gems, which I put together in my mixes for you to hear.
