Mixtape Download: City Slickers- A.D.I.D.A.S
After closing out 2011 with the growing buzz from their Brick Records/Pollymore Music project, ‘Still Smoking Cigarettes & Tellin’ Lies’, the City Slickers (@CitySlickersCru) are back with their new project, ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.’, which is sure to serve as the theme music for BBQs all summer.
The title which stands for All Day I Dream About SUCCESS gives you a hint at the Crew’s ambitious nature for this project. A mix of originals and freestyles, The ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.’ mix tape will give listeners more of the lyrical and raw Hip Hop that City Slickers are quickly becoming known for. DJ Bobby Bangers, Tommy Tony & Capital J are working hard to spread the gospel of good Hip Hop. Having shared stages with DJ Premier, Raekwon, Jadakiss, Jay Electronica, Maino and Statik Selektah & Termanology, the Boston, MA based trio has worked hard to build an audience for their music. The proponents of a Hip Hop evolution, CSC is on a mission to push the genre forward.
Tommy Tony explains the group’s approach to creating ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.’ and the meaning of its title- “First off its shout out to our hometown.Boston cats have love for the stripes even to this day. For us it is all about focus. The title is meant to show our mentality as we go farther and farther into the game. Nothing can deter us because we are locked on this goal. And we know there are a whole lot of people out there like us. If you are working hard toward something and you won’t let anything turn you around then you will feel us. This is your soundtrack.”
