Hello All!

I know, “back so soon?…,” but today’s post is for a good cause! The good ladies of BEAN (Bushwick Eco Action Network) asked me if I could put together an entertaining two hours of music to serve as the background sound for the Fall Mixer they’re throwing this evening: B.E.A.N. STEW!

(Other than being what a great deal of my wife’s energy goes towards) the Bushwick Eco Action Network (BEAN) provides a forum for ecological observation, exchange, organizing and action.  Inspired by the principles of Permaculture, they seek to create a more balanced urban ecosystem in relationship to Bushwick’s neighborhood growth. — You can learn more about BEAN and see what they’re up to over here….

…Or, you can come on out to Fritzl’s Lunch Box this evening, Sunday, September 29th, to chit-chat and chew-the-fat face-to-face, y’know, the old-fashioned way.

I hope you all can make it out for this fun meeting-of-the-minds, and I hope you all enjoy the tunes I’ve assembled for this 2 volume MixTape for a mixer. I didn’t have too much free time to finely stitch all these together, so there’s certainly some loose threads and a rough patch-job or two, but I’m sure you can dig it! …On a more personal note, I can already hear Autumn creeping in to my taste. Anyway, thanks, and as always–

–Enjoy yourself-

Today, September 14, 2012, marks the thirty-ninth birthday of Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known under the moniker of Nas. In terms of lyrical technique Nas remains one of the greatest rappers out there, and his off-beat conversational flow truly innovated modern Hip Hop. Additionally, Nas has an eye for detail that is sorely missing amongst the majority of his contemporaries. In a Nas song you can smell and taste the scene. And of course he gets points for representing Queens!

In celebration of this artist (a bit last minute, as I only found out it was his birthday this afternoon) I’ve slapped together a mix from songs of his I happen to have on my laptop at the moment. Again, by no means is this mix meant as my “Best-of-Nas,” and only consists of what I had on hand at the moment. However, with a talent such as his, I feel it shines through regardless. You can grab the mix below.


Happy Birthday Nas!
