Phat Root Radio Presents Our First PROJECT!

A few loyal fans may remember the tribute show we did a couple of weeks ago... We showcased some of our favorite artists, artists that influenced us such as Wu-tang, EPMD, Kev Brown, and the icing on the cake: a one hour extra thumpin' Dilated Peoples Tribute Mix...

Well for those of you, the one of two people in the world not tuned in, that missed it, Icepick put together some artwork, and now you can download it and bump it in all it's glory at your earliest discretion...

Let us know what you think!
