Hip Hop Hooray (Leah)

July 27, 2012


This month’s mix is inspired by my own contemplation of how great horns and horn samples sound in hip hop. Instead of wax rhapsodic about the great depth brass instruments can bring to hip hop, even for songs not trying to achieve anything close to a jazz sound, I’ll just let you sit back on this Friday and let this horn-filled playlist move you.
