(A taste of the Mixtape)
In celebration of the life of Michael Jackson and the year anniversary of his passing I thought I’d show my love by blessing all of my Soulified fam with this masterpiece of a mixtape that the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff mixed and when I say a masterpiece I mean just that!
This album has the perfect formula for a mixtape…No annoying ass DJ shouting out his name, click, and baby mama’s every 5 seconds over the track with the annoying echo effect, the scratching is limited and sounds great, the mixing is flawless, the singles are on point, the artist is on point, with very little sampling to the original tracks. And as you can see by the 49 single track list below Jazz doesn’t sale you short with the MJ hits. You get EVERY Michael Jackson in this one from when he was the tender age of 8 performing with The Jackson 5, his dark, solo, afro years, the light skinned “Jerry Curl” MJ, up to the white version he all left us as. There’s singles on this album that I never even heard of that my mom had to school me on when she over heard me listening to the album and immediately requested I burn her a copy for work. lol Your also going to hear a few familiar sample’s taken by today’s artist like LL Cool J and Ghostface Killer just to name a few.
All around this mixtape is a must have to anyone’s collection and hard to believe it’s “mixtape” and free at that. Just press play, leave that skip button dusty, and enjoy a legend introduce another legends entire life in the form of music.
