Some Cool Urban Vibes - The Beatmeister's HipHop MixTape

First of all, zshare is back, up and running again! Great news for us music bloggers. :)

Now for today's mix, am taking a completely different path from the usual and will be giving you some nice cool rap and hiphop tunes from some of the best artists in this genre. While having problems with my upload yesterday, I've decided to compile a couple of tunes and mix 'em together (accompanied with some scratching, cutting, beat juggling and effects) and was able to come up with this one. Most of these are my faves in the rap/hiphop scene, some old and some new. Included in the lineup are some new acts like Akon, Fatman Scoop, Bruce Wayne, The Black Eyed Peas & Amerie mixed with veterans like Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Q-Tip, Tupac, & Nas.

I suggest even though it's not your cup of tea, that you should try this mix for a change and I guarantee that you will enjoy movin' to the cool and funky vibe.

Tracklisting for today's mix:
1) I Wanna Love You (Clean Version) - Akon feat. Snoop Dogg (Akon's probably one of the most promising acts today)
2) Get It Poppin' - Fat Joe feat. Nelly
3) All Night Long - Fatman Scoop feat. Lionell Ritchie (DJ Smurf Club Remix) (nice remake; nicely done!)

6) Hidden Agenda - Craig David (Remix)

9) The Next Episode - Snoop Dogg feat. Dr. Dre (Version 2005)
10) California Love - 2pac feat. Dr. Dre (Wicked Mix)
11) If I Ruled The World - Nas
