About the show
Playing tracks by
Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz, Joey Bada$$, Beastie Boys, The Crooklyn Dodgers featuring Special Ed, Buckshot and Masta Ace, The Beatnuts featuring Method Man and more.
This mix consists of music about New York that's neither "Empire State of Mind" nor "New York, New York," like "N.Y. State of Mind" by Nas and "Humanism," Jon Batiste and Stay Human's opening theme from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
I love the sound of Batiste's "Humanism," and I wanted to surround the Batiste tune with my favorite tracks that are either about life in NYC (Donwill's pragmatic "Miserable") or were inspired by experiences over there (the Clash's "The Magnificent Seven").
