Today (April 25), duo The Rub (DJ Eleven & DJ Ayres) release Oodles Of OOs. The Brooklyn, New York-based unit’s latest highly-curated mix pays tribute to Hip-Hop and R&B music from 2000-2010.
Ranging from Lil Jon to JayLib, this 57 minute master-mix features blending, scratching, and very engaging turntablism. Elsewhere in the mix, Heads can hear T.I., Jadakiss, B.o.B., Slum Village, Gucci Mane, G-Unit, E-40, Capone-N-Noreaga, Joe Budden, Mobb Deep, Jay Z, and more (tracklist is below). The mix pulls from album singles, mixtape scorchers, and rare remixes that spoke to Eleven and Ayres at the time, and still do.
