DJ Shakes_2006-08-29 (Going Into Labor Music)
theme: Going Into Labor Music

Okay so this one is a bit weird, I was set to make a mix of west coast hippity hop when my friend Scott called and requested that I make a mix for him and his wife Alex to listen to as she delivers a baby. This is a bit scary because I have no idea what kinda music one would wanna listen to during such a time. Also since I've never been pregnant myself I'm not really sure what I would want to listen to. Well in any case I was sorta conflicted between songs that just made me happy versus things with a bit more of a beat to versus things I thought you'd like Scotty...and at some point it seemed like everyone would wanna hear Ol' Dirty Bastard while they're going into labor. I mean he had 12 kids, so he can be inspirational from that perspective.

Well the end result is my muddled mixture. I was thinking about redoing it but there's something nice I think about not overthinking some things in life and just letting them be.... usually that's the best thing anyways. Hope you like it Scotty & Alex
