In collaboration with adidas, Jay-Z ‘s culture site Life + Times premiers a new mixtape created by hip-hop beat veteran DJ Neil Armstrong. Mixing for eclectic hip-hop legends like The Roots, De La Soul, Kanye West and even formerly the Jigga himself, the Adidas Global Ambassador carries a deep knowledge of musical history and impeccable turntable skills. With a musicologist’s touch, Armstrong has compiled a rich soundtrack praising the city of Brooklyn. His comprehensive and artful sculpting of the last three decades of hip-hop is no more evident than in the 24-track listing, which features vintage cuts from hip-hop veterans like Notorious B.I.G., Jeru The Damaja, Beastie Boys, Gangstarr and Biz Markie, with plenty of Jay-Z tracks including new era bangers like the Kanye West collaboration “Gotta Have It.” All the while, Jay-Z and company rhyme their resounding love for the city that has brought immeasurable influence over the hip-hop genre.
