SHOUTCAST Volume 2.5 by DJ Icewater

Peep this quickie soul shakedown; DJ Icewater got out the long shovel and dug deep into the crates for you soul-brothers and -sisters. Classic Sly and the Family & The Headhunters are mixed up with contemporary joints from Lyrics Born, Colossus and the Crown City Rockers. It all goes to show that the Bay was ALWAYS funky and full of soul. Enjoy this half-hour treat for the holidays; rock it with your folks and make 'em say, "That hip-hop music is alright."
