Victory Jumpoff Radio - Show #2: DJ Strizy’s Michael Jackson Tribute Mix

Victory Jumpoff Radio - Show #2: DJ Strizy’s Michael Jackson Tribute Mix

Once I heard the news about Michael’s passing, I immediately thought about doing a tribute episode. But considering how unsuccessful I’ve been with trying to get out the Slaughterhouse show or Chiv’s mini-mix, it’s a good thing my good friend DJ Strizy immediately went to his turntables and did this MJ Tribute Mix in one take. He was kind enough to let me use his mix for my second official show. So enjoy, and I really promise I have new episodes coming.

Victory Jumpoff Radio - Show #1.5: Chiv On The Tables

Victory Jumpoff Radio - Show #1.5: Chiv On The Tables

This is long overdue. I should put this out shortly after Show #1 but I delayed it, thinking I would get to it. Then Michael died. Then I threw away the Slaughterhouse show. Then I took it to Baseline for a show. And finally, in 2010, I bring you a mix from early 2009! lol. In all honesty, Chiv (yes, of Hip-Hop Manifesto fame) bought himself some turntables and threw together a little mix of the songs he was feeling at the time. So without further ado, I give you, "Chiv On The Tables"!
