New Mixtape: A Narkwork Orange – Disc One

Its been awhile since I compiled a new Nark, so this edition requires two discs for your listening pleasure. Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Friday leaks resulted in a slew of 5 minute plus quotable posse cuts.

QUIX vs ELLIOT trades DJ Toomp‘s bombastic beats for the endearing sounds of Coldplay. I […]
