Money Beets for 2010

Damn, December 31. Another year down. 2009 was the year La MoDa Mixtapes really took off, but also the year half of La MoDa relocated to Rochester, NY (sniffle, pour some of my Colt 45 onto my carpet). 2009 saw the inauguration of the first black president, and then 10 months of thinly-veiled racism, know-nothingism, and general bad behavior by the forces of evil (yup, I said it). 2009 gave us Balloon Boy, John & Kate +8, Tiger Woods the D-Bag, and Sarah Palin the bestselling author (that was difficult to type). 2009 was also a tough year economically, especially for my people in New York, who saw Wall Street rewarded for screwing us all while Main Street (or Flatbush Ave., or Washington Street, or wherever you live) was struggling to make rent on unemployment and looking for jobs that still haven't called back. As much garbage as 2009 gave us, it also took from us: MJ, DJ AM, Roc Raida, Ted Kennedy, Les Paul, Walter Cronkite, Swayze, the list goes on.

All in all, I say "f*ck 2009, bring on 2010!" I'm about to be a dad, La MoDa mixtapes is getting its geographically-challenged groove back, and 2010 is looking to be a much better year. So with that in mind, here's a little party mix to kick 2009 in the ass and lay a big sloppy kiss on 2010. I figured since Mo switched it up with his (bangin') fancy dancey mix for the last installment, I'd lower my BPM and give y'all something that goes well with party dresses and champagne flutes. It starts out classy but definitely gets sweaty by the time the ball drops...
