How appropriate is the timing of this mixtape? My friend Barry, aka Ninjascrawl (his graffiti/design name) aka DJ Wreck-One (His DJ name) hit me up via whatsapp to let me know he finished his latest mix called Hiātus.

Sometimes it’s not just a song that shapes you. It’s an album. (Remember those??) Times have changed. But I do remember buying this CD in a record store during a trip to LA. with money saved from my allowance. Gosh this album changed me. This changed me. Mos Def x Talib Kweli forever. I thank the soul who uploaded the full album online. Pass it on.
