An R&B groover mix for a Lennox Lewis/HBO reception
HBO is also a network for boxing. I can't recall who was fighting but I got the call that Lennox Lewis was attending and wanted to host a really short meet & greet out in Vegas.
It's a long way and a lot of pay for a DJ to do 2 hours so HBO rang and asked me if I could help out with music. I was told that Lennox was into what's known as Neo-Soul, especially Maxwell and Jill Scott, here's the mix.
The Rebirth - This Journey In
Kindred - Far Away
Toni Toni Tone - It Never Rains In Southern California
Mary J Blige - Message In Our Music
Erykah Badu - Bag Lady
Les Nubiannes - Makeda (Spinna Mix)
Jill Scott - It's Love
Kelis & Andre 3000 - Millionaire
Isley Brothers - Between The Sheets
Jaguar Wright - The Country SOng
Erykah Badu - Back In The Day
Maxwell - Dancewitme
Davina - Can't Help It

I did get to do a couple of boxing gigs, remembering most the Holyfield/Lewis fight at the Garden in 1999. Wow.
