The origins of this new mix series started with the concept of blending samples from Teddy Pendergrass with acapellas from Ice-T. However there isn't too many Ice T acapellas available thus I decided to add acapellas from other West coast artists such as Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, King Tee and others to the project.
Now since Teddy's catalog of music is within R&B/Soul I decided to use samples from other R&B artists such as Maxwell, Luther Vandross, Craig David and others.
Anyhow I think overall the concept came together well and hope you all enjoy the reworking of R&B tunes with emcees from the West Coast.
