Local 1200 legend and homie, Tim Diesel (www.twitter.com/timdiesel), invited me to the All Day Play studios in Oakland to spin with him on his radio show â€œOn The Roofâ€. Heâ€™s done some great tribute/block mixes in the past: Grand Puba, LONS, Nice N Smooth, etc. He and I discussed doing a tribute mix to one of my favorite West Coast groups â€“ Tha Alkaholiks. They were one of my favorite hip-hop groups because they were so LA but didnâ€™t necessarily associate with the thug imagery commonly thought of when you think of LA. Tash and J-Ro had great lyrics/punchlines, while E-Swift provided a musical backdrop that was funky but east-coast inspired. Hope you like the mix. I did the first 30 minutes, Diesel the last 30 min.
