TBT this week is a look back to last year when we dropped our Best of New York tribute mix showcasing our picks for the best in NY music for the last 15 years. Combing through all this great music to narrow it down was definitely a challenge but a fun one at that. Whether it’s Busta, Jay, A$ap Rocky, Santigold, The Rapture, Metro Area or TV on the Radio (or so many others), there’s been such a healthy contribution of inspiring music from NY based artists in the last 15 years and change. Coming up on the year anniversary of this mix and bringing it back today for the revisit. Stream in full below and download is below.
