Did a mix for my home gal’s birthday party and it wound up being 140 minutes of non-stop “ratchet/twerk” music (I really hate how those words have been commeercialized, but I digress).  We all have a lil ratchet in us, but the key is to only display it in certain environments and around select people.  When you hear this mix, you’ll forget that you have two degrees and a 401K.  And somebody said that TSU homecoming will be in September against FAMU?! Yeah, this mix right chew will get you in that mood.

Tracklist below after the jump…
