Playing tracks by
Public Enemy, KMD feat. Busta Rhymes and Brand Nubian, LL Cool J, Nas, The Pharcyde and more.
While the Japan-based artist usually listens to Onyx's Slam ('everyone knows that's what I listen to all day'), Drew's playlist pays homage to the hip-hop flavour of his Thug Life feature in Issue 26 of ACCLAIM - pages of his zine dedicated to 2pac. Kicking off with the first track that grabbed him as a teen by Public Enemy to The Pharcyde - 'I've never had a bad day after hearing Soul Flower, I can work on three jobs when it's playing' - into KRS ONE, Drew's all time favourite rapper. If you need a break, Drew recommends to make a cup of tea and hit Return of the Mack, and if you're working at 3am Telegram's version of Bjork's I Miss You will have you shrugging off tiredness with a cameo by Rodney P (if, Drew says, you need a hood check!)
