This is really one of my dumbest flow’s ever, I haven’t slept in days…
I’ve been up for a good 27 straight at this point, I’m not sure. I went from a session with Fabolous on Wednesday night that ended at about 4 am, up again at 11AM for a meeting to finalize our new partnership to another session with Fab & R. Les that went till about 5 AM this morning. Of course I could have gone home to rest but I wanted to finish up the new LMDM for you guys before I leave for the holiday weekend – the show must go on. So many things are happening right nowÂ and I’m so excited that I’ve literally lost the desire to sleep, I wouldn’t have it any other way. To all my partners, to Steph, to everyone who keeps making this life unforgettable, I appreciate everything we’re doing together, we’re really planting some big seeds, just a matter of time now!
I know that ni&@z would kill for this lifestyle, I’m looking forward to the memories of right now. Never forgetting where I came and no matter where I’m heading I promise to stay the same…”
– Drake (2010, Unforgettable)
Steph sent me this tape yesterday but as you can see there was no way I could have gotten it done but honestly this Friday morning/holiday weekend couldn’t be more appropriate for this sound. Just when all you mixtape makers thought you figured her out she smacks you in the face with yet another mad scientist blend of songs, tempos and genres only a music fiend of the highest level could conjur up.
I don’t follow any guidelines, cause too many ni&$z ride mine so change styles every two rhymes – Jay Z (1996, 22 Two’s)
Seriously though, Stephs got her own flow and it’s one of the reasons why LMDM has been such a big hit on this site and around the internet. All EMPT heads know what I’m talking about and if you’re now to this well then your in for a treat, enjoy.
Le Miel du Mois: Julliet – I loooove summer for so many reasons. A reader from last year described one of the mixtapes like this: “like dancing around the edge of a pool late night with a drink and a cigarette and oversized t-shirts and sometimes getting pushed in and you never remember the photos that get taken but you laugh the whole time,” which I think also holds true to the Le Miel du Mois summer series of tapes for 2010. This entire mix is practically remixes, except a few, including the first track: When I first heard this Baby Jazz song called “The Song for the Season” with lyrics including “Yes, its Christmas time” I knew this was a perfect opener for the July mix… Happy Independence Month.
