"It took me about 3 hours to pick the videos in a way where they transitioned well," Mass, told CL in a message, "I included the videos I chose because of their strong identity for Tampa, a heavy fashion and art city."
The selections include some of the Bay area's most tried and true, nationally-known favorites like Dynasty, Laws, and Jinx, but the playlist also sheds light on some lesser known, yet massively talented lyricists and producers like Gatsby, Cambatta,
Atwaters, and Crown Marquiss.
Have a look at the playlist below, and join Mike Mass for his ambitious mash-up of fine wine & cheese and local hip hop when he presents "Wine & Rhyme" at Crumb & Cork (501 N. Franklin St., Downtown Tampa) next Sunday, March 30. Featured on the bill are the aforementioned Jinx, plus Mighty Jai, Good Vibes, and comedy from Kyle Porter. Cover is $15 and includes a glass of house wine. Doors open at 7 p.m. More information is available via Facebook.
