TAPE DECK SHUFFLE
The playlist of our favourite songs this week. 'Side A' features some latest cuts, while the classics make the 'B Side'.
TYRESE-STAY: An 'Open Invitation' to why Ty's latest creation is his best. A slick, trademark, beautiful ballad over sick acoustics.
JOE-LOSING: A winner for the clubs off Mr. Thomas latest good, bad and sexy project.
WALE-MIAMI NIGHTS: The D.C. Rapper takes the talent off his new album to the South Beach club scene in new Vice city.
IDLE WARSHIP-LASER BEAMS: Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli and singer Res stun us with their long-awaited electro-hip-hop debut.
COLDPLAY-CHARLIE BROWN: If you thought this band had made all their classics then you must be barking like Snoopy.
HEAVY D & THE BOYZ-NOW THAT WE FOUND LOVE: What are we going to do without this legend who brought the fun to hip-hop? Rest peacefully D.
THE JACKSONS-PRIVATE AFFAIR: Another late legend who's still sorely missed had a great family unit. Michael's brother Randy takes the lead on this Commodore-esque classic family affair.
ERIC CLAPTON-FATHER'S EYES: Soulful and beautiful. If you wonder why this man is one of the best wonder no more.
LUTHER VANDROSS-DANCE WITH MY FATHER: With Father's Day coming it's getting real fatherly on deck with this classic ode to pops from another late legend. Truly beautiful, truly missed.
GHOSTFACE KILLAH-THE CHAMP: This killer, top five rapper played Liverpool this week but we use this as our final selection to pay tribute to the great 'Smokin'' Joe Frazier. The heavyweight boxing legend we lost this week. Rest In Peace. TIM DAVID HARVEY
