Budsmokers Only – Vol. 1

Spark up and kick back with a chronic batch of hip-hop sounds.


The first installment of this feature kicks off with an absolute classic from King Tee as well as a track from Positive K that gave us the first recorded instance of “drop it like it’s hot” back in ’92.  Get ready for a master class in lyricism from the one and only Nas with a record taken from his hugely influential Illmatic album and then enjoy the lazy rapping style of Warren G as he unloads some groovy, melodic G-Funk on your ass.  We have one of the most iconic hip-hop tunes of all time from The Pharcyde and after listening to tales of high school heartbreak and unrequited love you will have nothing but gratitude for the refreshing and energetic sound of People Under The Stairs.  There are additional rhymes from The Beatnuts, Big L and DJ Quik as well as some more recent material from Slovenian Producer Gramatik, underground duo MellowHype and East London rapper Plan B.
