This song made me fall in love...fo' realz...
The art of a well-made mix has been the subject of many heated debates, arguments, and John Cusack movies. The song selection, song order, and the mix length could be distilled down to an algorithm for some mixtape masters, while others let their "gut" lead their organic process of mixtape creation.
I am here to attest that the power of the well-made mixtape is why I am getting married. Me: super-pessimist-feminist-ice-queen was reduced to a melty-mess-of-kittens-and-hot-chocolate-with-whipped-cream-on-top after a single listen to such a mixtape.
Shug knew I'd be a hard sell, so he cowboyed up and came out with mixtape guns blazing. I knew I was in deep trouble after listening to this Talkdemonic song for the first time.
