MIXTAPE 100 -BEAT TAPE 4 – KING EDITION
Most of us here are far too young to remember this, see but when Dr Martin Luther King, seek Jr died he was extremely unpopular in the mainstream US media – primarily because of his stance on the war. This sermon could have been delivered this morning and still have been relevant.
I’m of course not satisfied with this, because it’s really not possible to do the original justice, but this is what I’ve got. I really could have just thrown the acapella on here, that’s a good enough #100 for me. They say we’ll nod our heads to anything said over a beat and they lament the fact that too much of what is said over those beats is destructive.
So here’s something good to nod your head to.
Words: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr – The Drum Major Instinct Sermon. Delivered 4th February, 1968. He was assassinated two months later, to the day.
0’35 – Jay Electronica – The D.O.C. Song (loop). This is really just a loop taken from the beginning of Jay’s song by the same name. Not sure what the title of the cut means.
2’58 – P Dukes – Brown Leaves.
5’40 – J Dilla – Anti-American Graffiti (Reprise). Kinda hard to do one of these without the D on here.
6’45 – Suburb – Jazz on Acid.
9’00 – Kenny Keys – Set ‘em Up. Mean cut.
10’40 – Madlib – Old Age (loop).
11’45 – Ayatollah – Listen.
13’40 – Madlib - Pyramids (Changes). If you don’t already own everything that Madlib has put out, you should probably get started now. Stones Throw is a label worth supporting.
15’30 – Suburb – synth+strings. Do yourself a favor and make sure that you listen until the end.
