"My first experience in Cali was about 4 years ago when I took myself for my birthday for a week. I went in with the mind set of all the stereotypes from the celebrity sightings, the weather, the weed and the gang banging. When I got there, it was more chill and laid back then I expected. Everywhere from Inglewood, to Compton, to Long Beach, to L.A. and Hollywood was just a dope experience. The food was good, shopping was fun, the events were poppin and the people were awesome. If I could explain it all in music, this playlist would be the soundtrack."

Join Da Crowd Radio: (Episode 2) THEN & NOW [Vol. 1] (Audio & Video)


Motzy goes into full detail of each song on this playlist through it's origin, sample, producers, recording process, track listing and more.

"This playlist came to mind when I realized that the Styles P song "Good Times" had a familiar sample that I heard before when I was younger. It was the Freda Payne, "I Get High" record from back in the day. Such a dope song. It inspired me to find the samples of other Hip-Hop records. There were soo many that I came across but these 8 were the ones I loved the most for this particular playlist. I know there are probably many more going through your mind right now so I decided to break them down in volumes that will be released on later dates. In the meantime enjoy the first 8 of this volume series which tracks this playlist to 16 songs. The 8 originals from THEN and the 8 sampled remakes of NOW and this is just the start."

Playlists Of Life - #GHHG (Greatest Hip-Hop Groups)

Here is a collection of all collections. 60 songs and over 4 hours of music from the greatest Hip-Hop groups of all time. If you're a fan of rap squads like NWA, A Tribe Called Quest, Onyx and the Migos, yes The Migos, then this is the playlist for you. Stream below!



Motzy Says.......

"With the likes of The Lox and The Migos, we still get the feel and sound of what it's like to see a Hip-Hop/Rap group still prosper since the days of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Run-DMC and NWA. When I was putting this playlist together I wasn't expecting it to be 60 songs and 4+ hours but with soo many great groups out there I couldn't stop adding to it. When I finally got to the end, I realized that the "hip-hop group" was becoming damn near extinct. The Migos, yes The Migos are probably the last of the rap groups that I can say left a mark and really influenced the culture. Now there are collectives out there like Griselda but I don't see them as a group because they are considered a label of MC's, kinda like D-Block, so I can only hope that more great groups will emerge, but for now l hope you guys enjoyed this bundle of classics. Oh yeah, even though they didn't make MY playlist, shouts to groups like The Beastie Boys, Kris-Kross, The Lost Boyz as well as House Of Pain."

"Experiencing hate regardless if it comes from your friends, family, coworkers, the person you’re with, the person you used to be with, the people you’re around or just some random person on the street is something we all can relate to. When I sat down and put this playlist together I wanted to catch all levels of emotion surfacing around the word hate. Featuring some of your favorite music artist past and present. The first 5 songs are the hype, the middle 5 songs are the storm and the last 5 songs are the calm."

Playlists Of Life - As Produced by Timbaland

Here's a historical, musical timeline of  67 songs of over 4 hours of just some of Timbaland's production over the years. From Missy Elliot to Justin Timberlake to Jay-Z, Timbo is really the King when it comes to some of the most top charting beats across all music genres. We could only imagine the records he would have produced for the late great Aaliyah. Come take this journey with us. 


Motzy Says.....
"When I first really heard a Timbaland beat, I was like WTF is this? Is that a baby? It was the Aaliyah, “Are You That Somebody” song and ever since then, I knew dude was gonna be a problem. The Missy run was incredible. They were like Jordan and Pippen but then the songs he did with Jay-Z just solidified his skills as a producer.  To working on whole albums with Justin Timberlake and making some of the biggest Pop and Hip-Hop records, Timbo is truly one of the best producers EVER! Hope y’all enjoyed." 


Playlists Of Life - The D' In The 313

We celebrate 2 hours through 35 songs of Detroit’s elite MC’s, Rappers and Hip-Hop Artists... past, present and future. Everybody from Eminem, Trick Trick, Slum Village, Dej Loaf and Tee Grizzley give you various styles and sounds when you play this. This is what the Motor City sounds like!
Motzy Says.... 
“Detroit, D Town, The 313, Motor City and famously known for 8 Mile because of Eminem. I wanted to put this playlist together because I felt the sound needed to be showcased across all styles and sounds of their city. I did my research on the legends of the past, was already listening to most of those in the present and I was cool enough to have an open mind to those of the future. The Midwest definitely has its own movement and this is just me giving a salute to that. Hope y’all enjoyed!”
