Mick Boogie’s The Honor Roll mixtape
What better way to celebrate VH1’s 2008 Hip Hop Honors than by rounding up a cast of rising talents to reinterpret classic tunes from this year’s honorees (Slick Rick, De La Soul, Naughty by Nature, Cypress Hill, Too $hort)? Give DJ Mick Boogie credit for the clever concept, and applaud Kidz in the Hall, Izza Kizza, Mickey Factz, and many more Z-lovin’ up-and-comerz for pulling it off.
