The new mix is up and ready. For those who missed a few previous posts, I worked and slaved on a mix paying homage to De La Soul and Prince Paul's crowning achievement, 3 Feet High and Rising. Released 20 years ago, the record still holds its own as a pioneering and mind-detonating example of sampling mastery. It still is often regarded as one of the most creative album in hip hop's history and, in terms of popular music, it leaves a deep footprint amongst some of the greatest records ever recorded. The mix was intended to both honor De La as well as explore the makings of 3 Feet realizing that it took years of others musical achievements to make the record what it was. Here's the track listing:

To download it, hit this link right here. I got comments about some banner ad that had thongs/wedgies on it for the Cypress mix. I have no control over what banner ads z-Share put on their site. I just checked the link and it appears to be clean, but those ads might be randomized. Enjoy otherwise. And if you just click the link to see thongs, get yo head correct.

The thongs are still there. Just thought I'd let you know. Hopefully no one's too offended. Just view it as a bonus to go along with your mix.
