It's Ya Birthday Mix (Part 2)

Birthdays nowadays are completely different to when I was young. I got Lego, Matchbox cars, and cassettes. Nowadays people make proper mixes, and in this case Selectabwoy made a mix for his missus, to celebrate her birthday. Wish my missus would make me a proper mix, but sadly she's not gifted behind the decks lol. The only music related thing she ever gave me, was a mix tape. Which wasn't a tape, nor was it a mix. It was a CD with romantic tunes on it. Still cool though, but a mix just sounds cooler, especially when it's filled with excellent Hip Hop and Rap music from my youth.

I do love listening to Hip Hop and Rap, and sadly never hear enough. I do listen to certain radio stations, but they always play the same crap over and over again, which frustrates me. Selectabwoy played the well known tunes, which you sadly don't hear on the radio anymore (can't understand why imho). Maybe it's because of swear words (which they can take out), or maybe another reason, but these tunes deserve a bigger stage.

Selectabwoy is a legend, and his birthday mix he proves again why he's ace. The tunes he's selected are all fucking epic. Don't know if his missus actually likes them, and that's the reason why played them, or he just made a mix with tunes she might like? No matter the reason behind these tracks, I find it awesome to hear them all together in one big mix.

When you've got a moment, why not have a look at the tracklist, and see the wicked tracks he's picked for his missus? Really big tracks, and I'm not exaggerating.

Glorious. Amazing looking tracklist. So many great anthems by the greatest. You know a mix is going to be epic when you see Eminem, Ice Cube, Biggie, Dr. Dre, MC Lyte, and more. And Radiohead? Bit of a weird one, but yeah, the way this track has been mixed in, it just works.

Hope the missus of Selectabwoy had a nice birthday. With a mix like this one you know for sure she had a nice one.

There's no rhyme or reason why he has selected these records (as far as I can tell), but they are all fucking solid. Individually amazing records, but all in one mix just makes them even better.

Got nothing negative to mention. A great mix with some great Hip Hop & Rap songs.

The best songs are by MC Lyte. Brilliant MC. Brilliant songs. Love them!

Get on it right now, and if it's your birthday today or soon, just imagine Selectabwoy making it especially for you! And he's giving this as a free download too! So not just a mix, but also a small present you can take everywhere... unless you are a constant streamer, of course.
