As the weekend draws to a close and we resurge into our weekly routines, Mixtape Monday brings the funk to get you through your week. This installment includes supreme mixes from some of OKP’s go-to compilers of dopeness, including some heavy-hitting tributes to some of NYC’s most heralded hip-hop luminaries. We’ve got Mister Cee‘s tributary mix to New York’s brooding trio of MCs the LOX; a video mix from DJ Cable compiling some A Tribe Called Quest‘s most enticing and lively visuals; DJ Bond‘s homage to the greatness that is DJ Premier; Hieroglyphics‘ mix celebrating their recent collaboration with The Hundreds for their 6th anniversary. On top of that we got tapes from LeFtO, who shines some light on the latest flames from the blogosphere, like some excellent new editions from Jay Electronica & Co, ill tapes from DJ Technics (B-more stand up!,) DJ Rupture letting loose his (digital) tribute to the Cumbia tradition, Chairman Mao‘s celebration of impending warmer weather, Jillionaire‘s Caribbean mix for Feel Up Records‘ Chicken & Beer party at ULTRA later this week and finally, Deadly Dragon‘s posthumous tribute to dancehall great Wayne Smith‘s legacy. Whew! Without further ado, tap into this round-up of illness, sure to get you off your Monday jones and into the workflow.
