Podcast 24 - Lyricist Lounge

Who's ready for some hip hop?  I meant for this mix to focus on lyricism but it really turned into a mix of just plain awesome tracks.  Great lyrics need to be delivered with the right flow over just the right beat for a track to really hit.  That general framework for what to expect of a good tune leaves so much room for creativity.  This mix has just a few of my favorite examples.  Also, I did something a little special for you this time.  Notice that all the tracks in the tracklist are actually links taking you to the lyrics of the song.  The last one is actually a youtube that has the lyrics scrolling as the song plays.  It's pretty helpful for that song.  Just listen and you'll understand.

Thanks for listening and don't forget to support the artists,
