MIXES
-Boogie on: Dam-Funk reminds you what the 80s really sounded like here

-His name is Paul Pre: You can always trust a German's taste in spacey instrumental hip-hop (I recommend his Best of 2008 mix)

-Classic material: Best of Bad Boy Radio freestyles

-Best of Janet Jackson mixtape: "Admit it, back in the day when Tribe, De la, and all the rest were dominating the scene, this is what you were really listening to."

NOT A MIX, BUT STILL DOPE

-The Meaning of Dope blog with an amazing TV Carnage-style pile-up of clips from Yo! MTV Raps

KIND OF A MIX, WEIRDLY ENTRANCING
-My favorite artist David Choe practicing drums to his iPod shuffle
