Recently, I left my hometown of Cincinnati for Northern Kentucky. The move itself was traumatic. Besides the ridiculously steep mountain that is my driveway, I had to make the usual moving-day decisions of what to get rid of. I never considered myself a "pack rat" until moving day. The vast majority of my crap is music-related, and my biggest dilemma when it came to what not to bring was with my cassette tapes.
I'm working on the mixtape of a lifetime. This is not, of course, a mixtape in the traditional Hip Hop sense, replete with recycled beats, guest appearances and endless self-aggrandizing promotional drops. My mix is a personal collection of tracks that I've chosen to capture the range of emotions I experienced as Barack Obama became our 44th President of the United States.
