I never know when summer officially starts each year, or how that gets decided. Is it the same date every year? Does it change? Who makes that call? Luckily, MICK and DJ Jazzy Jaff have been keeping a tradition alive by releasing a Summertime mix every year. Today marks the fifth year, and the guys drop off the new soundtrack for your barbecues, pool parties, rooftop hangouts, and late night debauchery.
Today we have Summertime Vol. 5. Summer has officially started.
This year’s installment features Jay Z, Missy Elliott, De La Soul, Common, Stevie Wonder, The Roots, Funkadelic, Cam’ron, Erykah Badu, and so much more. Listen and download below, and check out their official site (summertime.fm) for more.
