By the time you hear this mix I’ll be on my way to South Africa. Yeah, World Hip Hop, I really travel the world. Long flight, two planes, 3 hour layover. All together it’s an 18 hour flight. That’s like riding on a Greyhound bus to Georgia! 18 hours in the air, go figure. Gotta do it. Well, I don’t have to, but I want to. I wanna see the world. A trip to the motherland, who would have thought? So I have a couple of artists from South Africa on this mix. Check it out. I think some of them will be performing at the festival called “Back to the Streets” in Johannesburg, SA. That’s where we are headed. Me and my boy Mazzi & SoulPurpose. I also know EPMD is a headliner. Well, let’s get to the mix. Go!!!
