Mood "Built To Last" (Mix)

Here's the latest tribute mix from Built To Last, showing love to the Mood crew out of Cincinnati, OH. The group includes rappers Main Flow, Donte, and producer Jahson. They were originally formed as Three Below Zero, but changed their name to Mood in 1994. With production from Hi-Tek (and Jahson), the group gained underground acclaim with tracks like Karma, Hustle On The Side, Secrets of the Sand; remixes with J Dilla and introducing the Brooklyn MC, Talib Kweli. Their album "Doom" was released in 1997 and if you aren't up on it still, you've been missing out. They also had a compilation LP in 2000 called Mission Control Presents and went on to release multiple solo projects and a few projects as a group in recent years. Some of the highlights from their group catalog are in the mix below, check it out and definitely hit the tags for other Built To Last mixes.
