DJ Treats Presents C.R.E.A.M. (Common Rules Everything Around Me) Mix



Shouts to Wu-Tang, but today C.R.E.A.M. stands for Common Rules Everything Around Me. The 60 plus minute mix from DJ Treats gives us a glimpse into the catalog of Common. Be sure to pick up his Nobody’s Smiling LP on iTunes.

“Common might be the only rapper I know to only do hip-hop at one speed—100. Compared to his public persona, Common’s laid back demeanor is a 180 degree turn from his high energy performances in the booth, or on stage. That approach is akin to how I DJ. The majority of my mixes, whether using turntables, or mixing on-the-go with my iPhone, is always in one take. The result is a seamless one-track dive into whatever I feel at the moment. In this case, I combed through Common’s catalog of bangers dating back to when he intro’d with Can I Borrow A Dollar? I wanted to give you that feeling of Common blazing through all his hits as if you were at his concert, or if I was spinning at his album release party.”

Relax and Listen after the jump.
