I came across this soul mix as I was searching for new podcasts to post. Yea so I know many of y’all are like “Ummm I though this was a hip-hop site!” Well if you don’t understand the role of R&B and soul in hip-hop music…I’m gonna stop right there. Some of you might even be familiar with some of these tracks that have been sampled by some of hip-hop’s finest such as, Jay-Z, J. Dilla and Madlib.
