Budsmokers Only – Vol. 8

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


We kick things off today with an unforgettable track from former N.W.A. member Ice Cube and a couple of romantic raps from legendary emcee LL Cool J and New York duo Pete Rock & CL Smooth.  We have a track taken from the debut album of Big L, a 1996 hit single from Kansas City gangsta rap group Mass 187, a bad-ass collaboration between The Notorious B.I.G. and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and a funky little number from influential Southern duo OutKast.  There are some seriously chilled jams from political activist Immortal Technique, underground L.A. outfit People Under The Stairs and Philadelphia neo soul band The Roots.  British rapper Plan B is on hand with a song about underage sex, love and attraction and we also have a rare live recording of one of his earliest tracks.  There is also a special selection of mash-ups that put a fresh new twist on some old hip-hop favourites.
