//Riddim Right Mix #2: TAXI

//Inspired by OG producer Ski's comeback record "Taxi" with Mighty Mos, I ran it alongside one of my favorite riddims of all time, the immortal "Unmetered Taxi" Riddim of course by the legendary Sly & Robbie & the Taxi Gang. Then I was reminded of how elusive the Souls of Mischief "Taxi Song" demo was in the '90s (so named because it sampled the theme song from the late-'70s/early '80s Emmy-award winning TV series Taxi) -- and how excited I was to find the sample record in a dollar bin of a now-defunct South Side Chicago record store.

I'm having hella fun with these Riddim Right mixes, I don't know about you. Free Buju!
