Jam On It: Diplo and Friends Two-Hour Hip-Hop Mix

Diplo

You read that headline correctly, Diplo and Friends dropped a two-hour hip-hop mix to close out the their entire September celebration of hip-hop (however, according to Zulu Nation, hip-hop month is November…we’ll follow the elders’ lead on this one.) Surprised or not at having Diplo conjure up a two-hour mix of hip-hop’s classics from the last two decades, he makes a very good point at the beginning of the mix, stating that as a DJ, his beginnings come from hip-hop. No matter how many electronic, bass, etc.-based DJs reign supreme on Soundcloud today, the real ones never forgot who made the cut first. Hit the jump to catch Diplo’s mix and full playlist, featuring jams from EPMD, Group Home, 2Pac, Redman and Method Man, Beastie Boys, Pete Rock, Digable Planets and much more.
