Pushin' Tapes - DJ Big Jacks ( Straight Goodz )

Tapemasta: If this DJ was in NY during the high of the mixtape scene, he would of crushed the current people hands down..I truly enjoy listening to what he does. The man has skills & you hear it on the mixes !!

DJ Big Jacks ( Grand Groove DJs ): I had the honour of doing a guest DJ throwback set on Straight Goodz (94.5 The Beat. Vancouver) for my people Flipout & Jayswing. They were one of the only real hip hop shows on commercial radio in Canada and I was pretty excited to play classic hip hop and soul on a mainstream platform. Sadly, the show was recently cancelled but the memories still live on through archived moments such as this. This mix is a personal fav of mine and I think you’ll like it too, so check it out!!!

    Peace & Blessings

  2. I have to say that the tracklisting alone looks interesting to me, not the usual bunch of old school classics there - quite an interesting mix. Thanks for the link!
