142: 21st Century Blaxploitation mix (from Paris DJs)
Six years ago, Keith was asked (and happily accepted) to put together a mix of blaxploitation-vibe songs made in the 21st century, as Volume 3 of a mix series on Paris DJs.
This is that mix, released six years ago to coincide with Big Pimp Jones' second freestyle album 'Jimmy Ruckus and the Five Fingers of Death'. Keith took a liberty or two and grabbed a song or two from the 90s but in general stayed true to the promise. The mix was specifically done with songs that were readily available at the time and shouldn't be that hard or expensive to track down today. Hope you enjoy!
