To help celebrate the bornday of one Shawn Carter, DJ Lissa Monet put together a 2dope mix of all things Hov. Hit the jump to stream/download.
This 4 Jay-Z mixtape isn’t really about the hits, because we can play Jay-Z hits all day, its essentially about the lyrical versatility and growth of an artist who wasn’t ashamed of where he came from and wasn’t afraid to push boundaries do the impossible and keep people thinking.
I actually caught wind of these dudes while out in Atlanta for the A3C Festival. They held their own on stage and had the crowd rockin’. With this release, the Atlanta based duo are seeking to blur the lines of distinction the industry has placed on male and female artists. Featuring a guest line up that consists of Amanda Diva, Maggie Horn, Jessica Tonder, Roxy Cottontail, Slick & Rose and Muffy with a mixing touch from T-Dot’s own DJ Lissa Monet. Along with the lyrical side of Proton, with this tape you also get rare b-sides, slow jams and party anthems from some of their favorite artists; from The Beatles to Raekwon. Definitely worth a listen…
