TRACK 6: "Elevators" by Outkast
Nov 17 2020 54 mins  
Track six is when you give your favorites their flowers. If someone else was putting this playlist together, maybe they’ll have the best New York rapper or an entire West Coast label represented. Not you though; you’re throwing on Outkast. It may not be the song with the most airplay, but it is the one that might mean the most. As Andre 3000 once said, the South’s got something to say.

Nov 10 2020 40 mins  
Track five is when the listeners trust you, so you put on a song you really love.

Nov 03 2020 44 mins  
Track four is when you impress your friends with your deep music knowledge, when you turn to the back seat of the car and say “Did you know Torn is actually a cover?

TRACK 1: "No Scrubs" by TLC
Oct 13 2020 42 mins  
The first track of the mixtape has to be a banger, get the energy up, and set the tone for the rest of the mix. We had to start ours with a song so good they had to keep the rap verse off the radio, and so pointed a bunch of guys immediately made a rebuttal track. It’s “No Scrubs!” Credits - Hosts: Tracy Clayton and Akoto Ofori-Atta - Lead Producer: Eric Silver - Editor: Brandon Grugle - Executive Producers: Amanda McLoughlin and Tracy Clayton - Produced by: Multitude & Sony Music Find Us Online - Website: my90splaylist.com - Twitter: twitter.com/sonypodcasts - Instagram: instagram.com/sonypodcasts - Facebook: facebook.com/sonypodcasts About The Show The 90s are back in so many ways, but our favorite tracks never left.
