A few of these songs can be found on my other mixes, though they are set in a different context here: they are all tracks that influenced hip hop in some way or another. By the way, this bad ass picture of Mr. T has absolutely nothing to do with this mix in any way. I just always wanted to put a picture of Mr. T on one of my mixes. Maybe this is the mix he listens to in the A-Team van when he's on the way to bust some fools heads together.

Hell yeah! This should get mix of the week, even though it probably won't. Kurtis Blow doesn't get nearly the props he deserves. Excellent mix.
