This week's "For Your Listening Pleasure" features mixes from the likes of the Lifted Music Podcast (featuring TeeBee), Sol.ID, ESB, XO, Calibre, Perpetuum and Phlorid. Loads of upfront DNB tracks.
2Pac was murdered 11 years ago yesterday; XXLMag.com got the thoughts and rememberances of many Hip-Hop stars; eskay threw up some essential Pac viewing; Rizoh posted a funny "Tupac Shakur Boulevard" bit that Chris Rock did on his HBO show; Hussein Fatal got interviewed by HipHopDX; and Hurricane Ivan (of Hip-Hop Is Read fame) dropped a dope mixtape full of Pac music, loads of remixes and blends - don't sleep! And give Pac your props.
That's about it for this week. I'm going to end this playlist with a performance of Kanye West's from 106 & Park, with him doing "Big Brother". I love that track.

Enjoy your weekend!
