DJ Neil Armstrong – “From Marcy To Barclays”

Of the five boroughs that make up New York City, Brooklyn might be the most proud.

Statik Selektah "The History of Freeway"

Statik Selektah – “The History Of Freeway”

“Roc The Mic” was probably the first time I first really paid attention to Freeway, and since then I’ve kept a close eye on the man and his career.  Though he may not be as popular in 2012 as he was back in the glory days of Roc-A-Fella Records, he’s still a solid MC.  Statik Selektah collects some of Philadelphia Freezer’s best for this mix.
