R&B Rewind: Horace Brown – ‘Things We Do For Love’

When Wu-Tang’s slick lyricist Raekwon dropped his ill Stop Trippin’ freestyle over R&B singer Horace Brown’s album track Trippin’ that we posted yesterday, it made me feel like going back & listening to a few other hot singles the Charlotte, North Carolina singer dropped back in the 90s.

Sharp transistions, scratches, some on the fly remixing of sorts using only the two turntables, Blends, & some dope diggin’ with the selections as to not flood the project with too many joints you may already be familiar with is Jaycee’s recipe. THIS is how a true classics mixtape should be done. Check out the complete tracklisting below, but i’d advise you to just turn it up & trust your ears like I trust his…….
