Happy Friday, and welcome to the sounds of Mezz. As varied and vibrant as our tastes, each week on Friday we’ll present to you a freshly curated collection of tunes inspired by, and meant to be paired with, one of our formulas: Mellow (chill music), Inspire (up and coming artists), Up Tempo (party vibes) and Gold (classics/hits).

This week is all about MezzGold. From block party to golden era and a little gangster, click play now to run through a collection of high-potent, hip-hop jams curated with the purist in mind. Happy listening.

Next week is all about MezzMellow. Watch this space.
