Pete Rock is more than qualified to put together a tribute mix to everyone’s favorite vibraphone player. He is one of the most sampled musicians in the history of hip-hop music. In fact without Roy Ayers, the hip-hop music industry would sound much different indeed. Pete throws together a brilliant array of Roy’s fingerprints on the music industry.

To get the word out about next weeks THE 90s PARTY PART DEUX, DJ Jonasty has put together a little mix of songs from, you guessed it, the 90s. a time when things were much simpler. A time of Starter jackets, Cross Colours, overalls, Polo Sport, and Timberlands. A time when DJs could play the music they wanted without being bothered by what the “radio” was playing. So next week if you’re in the Jackson area come out and support DJ Young Venom and DJ Jonasty as they spin tracks that some of you were probably not even old enough to remember.
Chi-town producer Thelonious Martin teams up with Violator Allstar DJs Scrapdirty & Supa for the release of The Anthology. The Anthology features Thelonious’ work with artists such as Ab-Soul, Pac Div, Fiend, Curren$y, Action Bronson, and more. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you are going to drop a mixtape then put it into the hands of a capable disc jockey.
