Hevehitta – The Writer’s Bench (Mixtape)
Inspired by the movie “Style Wars,” I (Hevehitta) have decided to drop a free mix called “The Writers Bench.” This 15-track mix focuses on the art of graffiti by the way of hip-hop music.If you are not familiar with The Writers Bench, it was a meeting place located at 149th Street Grand Concourse where graffiti writers would talk graffiti, make plans, sign black books and settle disputes. The main activity was watching art on the passing trains (known as benching). The writers would admire and criticize the latest paintings.To put my own personal touch on the mix. I have included recorded dialog from classic hip-hop films such as Style Wars, Wild Style and Beat Street.Meyhem Lauren, KRS-One, Typical Cats, Atmosphere, Futura 2000 and the Artifacts are just some of the artists you will find on this mix.
Enjoy and be educated.
