Dear Mama (A Hip-Hop Tribute to Mothers) by Paul De Loecker on Mixcloud

This is one of the many reasons why I love Mixcloud. You just get good mixtapes from time to time. This mix was in my stream and of course being Mother’s Day, I had to listen to it. Paul de Loecker doesn’t disappoint in his selection. All classic rap jams and in between the tracks, he adds interviews of rappers talking about why their mothers are important. Simple, easy and reminds me of the way mixtapes used to be. This is a great listen to just chill and reflect on why your mother is important to you. If your mom is cool, you can even chill with her listening to Paul de Loecker’s handiwork.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the baby’s mamas and to all the baby’s mama’s mamas!!!
