This is a compilation from the first two mixes narrowing down my favorite songs even more. This solidifies the songs I really like and usually results in a more enjoyable listen than the first two quarter mixes.
The difficulty is cutting songs which are obviously good because of size limitation. This results in songs i love having to be dropped as well as folks getting mad because I chose _____ over _____.
The final purpose for this First Half mix is to provide a more condensed mix that replaces the first two. When I post my 3rd quarter mix I will thus remove the 1st & 2nd quarter mixes.
The artwork: I created the artwork as a tribute to three great albums from this year and the artists who made them, Gnarls Barkley, The Roots, Erykah Badu.
Hope you enjoy the mix, as always, hit me up with your feedback.

2. J-live - The Upgrade (ft Posdanous & Oddisee)
3. Torae - Click (ft Skyzoo)
4. Elzhi - Motown 25 (ft Royce Da 5'9")
