Prince Paul just uploaded part II of his series, ‘It’s Not the Size of Your Mix,  It’s How You Use It”.   He says, “If you like hip hop that has been neglected and thrown in the gutter, then you will love this.  If you are into Summer Jam and Selfie Hip Hop, you will probably despise this”.

Afternoon listening…
