August 2021 Mix

I lost my wife suddenly and unexpectedly in June 2021. Since she passed it has been difficult to listen to the music we enjoyed over the years together. For the last few months I have been listening to a bunch of 90's Hip Hop that doesn't have memories associated with her. I've also found some new to me groups that I really enjoy. At the top of the list is People Under The Stairs. Once I started researching them I was devistated to find that Michael "Double K" Turner passed away ealier this year. I stayed up way too late one night watching a tribute mix that Thes One did for Double K. My older son also loves their music, so this month's mix is dedicated to the P! I know this content won't be for everyone and some of it is explict. We will return to our regularly scheduled program next month.
