The Old School History Note: When Hip Hop first made it to radio in my hometown Cleveland, DJ's were doing what they called "20 Minute Workouts" primarily because that was all the time they would get, so they would have to do something incredible with mixes, scratching and keeping the needles moving so you would request the DJ to come back, and get more time. In that spirit will be 5 volumes of The Blends. This is #1. Enjoy the music and spread the word.
