Machine gun funk.
On a new tape from DJ Tiger (the man behind that excellent Nipsey Hussle x DJ Premier mixtape,) Brooklyn’s cherished beat laureate laces a string of The Godfather’s funk foundations with cinematic flourishes and hallmark grit. Though the title misses an obvious opportunity to celebrate the “Machine Gun Funk” rapper, the tape is handled with reverence and care for the respective catalogs, stitching together selections from Brown’s live and studio repertoire with various heaters from Biggie’s bag.
You can hear The Notorious B.I.G. blaze James Brown classics on DJ Tiger’s latest mixtape below.
