Shecky Green and DJ Mighty Mi recently teamed up last week to offer a thrilling two-hour Thanksgiving mix on Shade 45 that highlights music from the golden era of hip-hop. Fittingly described as a "two-hour special devoted to boom-bap, classic hip-hop, funky beats and fresh rhymes," the mix is now available on SoundCloud for universal enjoyment.

It includes nearly 70 songs from artists like Run–D.M.C., Big Daddy Kane, Boogie Down Productions, as well as exclusive mash-ups created by Mighty Mi. Also included is a rare Nas interview with The Source from 1993 done by Green. As one of the founding members of The Source and the magazine's very first Editor-in-Chief, Green holds a very special place in hip-hop. That merit alone should be more than enough reason to check this out. The full rundown of the songs in "The Golden Era" mix can be found below.
