In the summer of 2012, Onra & Lexis joined forces to tackle a project based on a music period they both love so much. That brief period from approximately ’92 to ’97: the New Jack Swing sound got dated and soulful club music became much closer to the Hip-Hop productions of the time to create this Urban R’n’B type of music.

We simply call this era the “Throw Em’ Up” period in reference to the way that everyone in clubs and videos was vibin’ to these tracks: just throw up both your arms and wave them around nonchalantly (if possible with a champagne glass). The selection rules we followed for Vol. 2 are simple: #1: Soul artists featuring MC’s are ok, but not the other way around. #2: All of the picks have to pass the “throw em’ up” dance test, which means: no New Jack Swing stuff, no Timbaland because although Timbo is a genius it’s really a different kind of sound which shaped the late 90′s / early 2000′s sound.

Download and tracklist of the mix are here and for part one go here. Don’t miss videos of tracks in part one.

Puno ljudi je odraslo uz rap, mnogi su rodeni, a dobar dio zivi uz rap il radeci nekaj s njim il ga slusajuci, a HipHop realm card je grafikon cijelog rap svijeta di ce se svatko u rapu naci i bolje vidjeti gdje i sta je on/ona u biti, gledajuci se kroz rap. Osvrt poblize objasnjava stupnjeve i nivoe kruga bivanja, a sve se zasniva da se ne odvojimo od stvarnosti krivom realnoscu.
