My favorite Mixtape - Intro to Hip-Hop (Part 6)
Do you have a mixtape app on your phone anon? Well... You're missing out.
“Sal Magluta and Willy Falcon, two Cuban immigrants and lifelong friends who in the late ’70s began selling cocaine as a side hustle. They soon fell in with Jorge Valdes, a local trafficking bigwig, and were swept up in Operation Video Canary, a federal sting that netted Sal and Willy 14 months behind bars. Thanks to endless appeals, however, they were out on bail and free to continue running drugs as usual, and when Jorge went to prison in 1980, he handed his empire over to Sal and Willy, who promptly used Jorge’s connections with Pablo Escobar’s Medellín Cartel in Colombia to become kingpins and live the high life, including as competitive speedboat champions with their Seahawk Racing Team.” -TheDailyBeast
Today I’ll be introducing you to some of the best pieces of music ever created, Cigarette Boats by Curren$y and Harry Fraud. If you got a hustler’s heart this small 5 song project will most definitely resonate with you.
If you got Mitch’s heart:
Alright, that’s enough. Let’s get down to business. First song is called ‘Leaving the Dock’ .. Get your smokes and headphones.
This is the introduction to the mixtape and it’s one of my favorite songs. If I had to pick a song that plays when I walk into every room, this is it. Alright, we’re diving right into the second one.
The sample from this song is from Small Town Boy by Bronski beat. This song is very motivational, not in a corny way but in a way that’s enticing to a real mf “It’s more money to get, cars to park…”. Next Song.
Biscayne Bay is one of the greatest songs of all time for me. How Curren$y (Spitta Andretti) ends the last verse hits me in my soul
“ Revolutionary, rollin Chevy till I fall over
Told em, bury me a G and let my momma have the cheese
Though I'll never die cause the music livin in the streets
That's all that matter to me
Cause this other shit ain't real, them hoes just fucking me cause of that deal
These niggas living life with you until they just get jealous and you get killed
I'm just ridin ,smokin ,prayin
That the lord keep them away, and we keep gettin this money
Cause we legends in the makin', I'm sayin'
Mirrors = Shinny car rims. Alright, let’s get to the last song Sixty-Seven Turbo Jet, brace yourself.
Lmao on the first line Spitta starts making fun of people who don’t buy the Super Sport version of their cars. I put this song on car rides by the water, sometimes I stop and smoke a cigar.. Look at the water.
