[Mixtape] DJ M-Rock – Happy Valentines Day 2012

We posted his Jay-z mixtape a few months ago and the response was great! This time around he puts together a mixtape for Valentines Day. Happy Valentines Day to you and yours, people who aren’t a fan of this day just check the next post ha.

It’s been 3 years since I did a Valentine’s mix but I felt compelled to do something this year because the ideas were coming. When the ideas come, I stop everything I do and get cracking and man, I’m so happy I did. I love this mix and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I have been. It’s kinda cool to enjoy your own mixtape days before maybe thousands of people would. I got to warn the fans though – if you need that hardcore hip-hop in your life, go get my other mixtapes. This is for people who aren’t shy about how much they love Miguel, Janet and even H-Town. In case that’s not your thing, I’d still suggest you take a listen because it’s still really creative, musical DJing with a lot of thought and tricks.

Check the full post to see the tracklisting.
