hehe, check this out. it fits in beautifully with my recent nostalgia posts while taking us up to the present day. i’ve been slacking on my hip-hop this year, mainly because nothing has really been speaking to me in that way lately. wale, one of the few rappers i’m currently digging, tweeted about a guy called k-beta who, like himself, is from dc. he mentioned specifically a mixtape called 89-09, which sees k-beta rapping in different styles over tracks from each year of the last two decades. it’s a novel idea, one which hopefully give this rapper some well-deserved attention.
