Still Shinin’: A DirtyNeedles Tribute to Prodigy from Mobb Deep
In 2017, hip-hop lost one of it’s most important voices with the passing of Prodigy from the Infamous Mobb Deep.  P’s brand of gritty street poetry and vivid descriptions of the trife life, all but defined the sound of Golden Era, New York Hip-Hop.  To celebrate his legacy and the indelible mark his music left on many hip-hop heads, WyzeWon compiled a 2 disc mix of his finest work.  Disc 1 highlighting his work as part of Mobb Deep and Disc 2 showcasing his solo work.  Rest in Peace to the H.N.I.C.

Best R&B 2016
In our opinion, hip-hop and R&B are inseparable and Erwin is back again to serve up the best soulful jams 2017 had to offer. Childish Gambino, Kehlani, Sevyn Streeter, Bryson Tiller, Frank Ocean, Bruno and more!!! And look..if you saw that cover and still don’t know if you should pledge, we don’t know what more to say.
Thanks for your time and hopefully thank you also for your generous pledge!!
