DJ Bazooka Joe aka Truck Jewls, The Bronxville producer takes you on a journey of Hip Hop mashed up with funky breaks. Most of the joints are good and some just ok. However all in all this is a decent mixtape. It's not as groundbreaking or eclectic as Joe's description suggests but it's better than what you hear on top "urban" radio.

I got two ways to download for for both discs and another for each individual disc.
