Black Joe Lewis + Derek ‘DJA’ Allen (Mad Decent) – Livin’ in the Jungle Mixtape
Mixed by Derek ‘DJA’ Allen (of Mad Decent fame), the Livin’ in the Jungle mixtape combines Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears’ soulful talents with verses/beats from some of the most buzzing rappers and producers of late. Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears are huge fans of Southern rap, and here legends like Bun B and Juicy J appear in a new context (even President Obama makes a cameo). On the heels of their critically-acclaimed sophomore album Scandalous, the Livin’ in the Jungle mixtape adds a new dimension to the group’s catalog.
