MISTER CEE / HEAVY D - "Tribe Mix For Hot '97"

Say what you will about Mister Cee and his personal live, you can't despite that he's an extremely talented emcee who's always kept his ear to the street. Yesterday marked two years since the untimely passing of one of hip-hop's true innovators in Heavy D; I'm not gonna front and say that I enjoyed all of Heavy's music but his connections with some of the true hip-hop greats like his cousin Pete Rock, Marley Marl, DJ Premier, Easy Mo Bee and so forth really brought much of his music to classic status. I can't believe it's almost been two years since Heavy passed, bu still, life goes on and his music will live forever. Enter Mister Cee who has made a name for himself for creating some of the finest "Best Of" mixtapes and DJ-sets the world has ever seen, and make sure to give his Heavy D themed new mix a thorough chance. The one hour tribute mix was originally played on Hot '97s Throwback @ Noon yesterday and now people from all over the world have a chance to hear this terrific mix. Mister Cee does an impressive mix of classic Heavy D. & The Boyz jams, lesser known tracks, guest features and tracks from Heavy's solo albums (remember that amazing Jay Dee/Q-Tip assisted "Listen"?). Just press play below (or grab the free download), enjoy and make sure to never forget about the Heavster.
