The Lotus Lab Show 45 – Fat Laces III

Podcast available @ Itunes under "Lotus Lab"


The Lotus Lab is back with another edition of Fat Laces, which is my tribute to real rap music. It’s been a tumultuous affair with hip hop culture over the years where I was ready to serve divorce papers. But on the brighter side of things there are some artists still representing real culture and creative lyrics/production. On this mix there are a few tracks by the likes of Zion I, Buckshot, Kardinal, Missy Elliot, Slick Rick and The Cool Kids who pay tribute to earlier hip hop tracks. With hip hop being about 35 yrs old, it’s fitting that we start sampling our earlier production since everything moves in cycles. So enjoy my selection and lemme know what you think.
