The GTW (pictured above) is one of the most versatile Chicago artists on the come-up. He raps, sings, blends mixes (as seen earlier today), and produces. Here's his newest "rework" of Tink's "When I'm Lit". And when it begins with iconic clips from Kenan & Kel, it's already a *Tibs Fav.. The good grooves continue after that amazing start, which GTW describes as "traditional ethnic tribal sounds and 90s So So Def Atlanta bass". Dopeness!
Love the concept and this mix is the groove. Says GTW:
A collective mix of some of my all time favourite songs from Africa & the diaspora. Some new, some old, all have sentimental relevance to me. A few of these songs I would hear at family events as a kid and never quite knew the name of, I just used to dance to these songs like the little Diaspora Pop Star I was and got showered with money (U.S. Dollars) in the process. This mix is dedicated to my late cousin Inieke Udoiwood, one of the first musicians I knew. And the very reason i’m creating audio imagery today.
