Lafayette presents Brooklyn Joint - Mixed By ESQUIRE
I had the pleasure of collaborating with Lafayette to bring to you a tribute mix to celebrate the release of their upcoming line of Brooklyn based clothing. This near-60 minute mix is meant to encompass the essence of growing up in the "thoroughest borough" in NYC. It features songs paying tribute to BK from the artists that lived it first hand with some turntable trickery tossed it.
So lace up your Timbs, grab 4 chicken wings and a grape soda from the Chinese spot on the corner and guard your grill piece as you listen.
This is my home...This is my soundtrack...Welcome to Brooklyn.
